And the great thing is, it only gets hotter the more they get to know each other. Calhoun writes the most amazing sex scenes because she doesn't just get the physical details right, she also gets the intense, mixed emotions that surround a growing relationship. The story takes place in New York and Calhoun really makes the city a character in itself.
I've only been to New York once for a few days, but the descriptions about the city made me want to go back so badly. The smells, the buildings, the people--everything Calhoun describes feels so real, to the point where I felt that I was walking through the neighborhoods alongside the characters.
To Kiss a Thief
Food and the art of cooking are characters, too. The way that Sarah describes cooking to Tim is so sensual; not in a sexual way, necessarily, but literally a sensory experience in which she teaches him to enjoy the act of eating as more than obtaining sustenance. It's also a pleasurable experience. And okay, it can be sexual, too. Lastly, the supporting characters are also strongly written.
There's a couple, Mr. Cohen, who absolutely broke my heart, but in a good way. I don't want to spoil any more of the story than I already have, so I'll just say that one scene with Tim and the Cohens toward the end of the book is a genuine tear-jerker. I'm still working my way through reading Calhoun's backlist, but I've never been disappointed by her books. She's such a great writer. Her characters tend to stay with me--I think about them long after I've read the book. Add Sarah and Tim to that list because they're certainly memorable characters.
I adored this book and highly recommend it. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my review. Sep 04, Amanda Byrne rated it really liked it Shelves: review-books. The thing about Anne Calhoun's books is when she's on, she is ON, and you have to prepare yourself for a gut punch. You just never know if it's going to happen at the beginning, the middle, or the end. We first met Tim in Breath on Embers which if you weren't gut-punched by the end, we can't be friends anymore.
Something's happened to him in the intervening years that made him shift his life into fast forward. He does everything at top speed: eat, work, fuck.

I loved his puzzlement over his reaction to Sarah.
She's not asking for more. She doesn't even seem to WANT more. Trying to figure her out has him reaching for her again and again, and it only succeeds in tangling his thoughts further. Sometimes I have a difficult time connecting with Calhoun's heroines.
Not so with Sarah. She's sweet, independent, and doesn't take anyone's crap.www.blueberrybearbooks.com/wp-content/uverse-movie/natoc-lose-it.php

She knows how to stand up for herself and, most important, she knows when to walk away. Life's taught her a lot in a short amount of time, and she's not about to waste those lessons. What I loved the most about Afternoon Delight, though, was the reality of the whole thing. Both have been hit with significant personal blows and dealt with them in a relatively sane, normal manner.
Tim's apartment isn't some monstrosity, and Sarah's skepticism of her new city played well for me. They're two people who think they know what they're getting into and when it doesn't turn out the way they thought it would, the results are about what you'd expect. Then Tim pulls out the Grand Gesture, but it's such a little thing, really. Except it's not. That, the ending, made me choke up.

What he did to show her he cared proved he was paying close attention and thought of something that would mean a lot TO HER. The funny thing is, I'd just finished re-reading Breath on Embers a few days before I picked this up, and the Tim in Embers and the Tim in Delight are far enough apart it took him saying "darlin'" for me to remember, yeah, that's the Tim from Breath on Embers.
He's changed a lot by the beginning of the story, and by the time you reach the end, he's changed even more. A sweet story that packs just the right amount of emotional punch, and it's definitely going on my re-read list. Copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

More than just an afternoon delight. Some things in bothered me a bit but overall I enjoyed the story and the writing. It feels very real and touching without being overly sentimental. This was a nice novella, simple, yet emotional.
Ms Calhoun has created an emotionally intense story of finding the right person with whom to enjoy life at a slower pace. Both main characters were rather interesting, carefully drawn and their personality really did shine through. Sarah was wonderful. Her love of food and cooking, her total immersion in everything were very vivid and emotional. I particularly enjoyed her explorations of New York, which went parallel with her return to life and her growing attachment to Tim.
