Trigger warnings: depression mention, abusing relationship mention, homophobia mention

Description: Nothing is more important to Diego than his kitchen. He’s dedicated to his job running one of the top restaurants in town and doesn’t have time for relationships. Then the boss, building on the restaurant’s success, brings in Ben. He’s young, hot, and not nearly as unlikeable as Diego wishes.

Review: This novella made me really hungry! So much tasty food… But not only the food is great. I really liked how harmonic Yes, Chef is, even though both main characters have their fair share of a depressing past. There is no competition in the kitchen, just friends having fun while working.

While it’s a short story, it manages not only to give Diego and Ben character, the side characters have their own pasts, too. Bonus points for Jesse. Why? You gotta read it.

Diego is a little bit of hot and cold, but considering his past, it makes sense. And sex under the influence of alcohol is not a great idea, especially if it’s a couple’s first time (consent issues, y’know?), so I was very happy, that their first time wasn’t then.
