As a dedicated foodie, my travel plans usually start with where I’m going to eat, rather than what I’m going to see. Having already eaten my way through several European countries, I was on the lookout for a new adventure when I came across an article that caught my attention – Peru was named World’s Leading Culinary Destination for the sixth year.
I must admit, visiting Peru was not even on my bucket list. I’m not even sure the country had ever entered my mind prior to that day. But before I knew it, I was Googling Peru. Two weeks later, my trip was booked.
I highly recommend booking a trip purely based on food. The cuisine in Peru is hand’s down some of the best I’ve had in my life. My trip began in Lima, where I had the opportunity to take a cooking lesson…well, I’m not quite sure you could call it “cooking” since we made ceviche (raw fish cured in citrus juice). In Peru, ceviche is considered its national dish. And to go along with it, we mixed their national drink, Pisco Sour!
From Lima to the Amazon River to Cuzco, I ate my way through Peru. Some of my favorite dishes included lomo saltado (beef), octopus, tuna tartar, anticuchos (grilled beef heart), and alpaca. The only dish I didn’t try was cuy. Cuy is one of the most popular dishes in Peru, but many of us know it by another name: guinea pig. I had a pet guinea pig as a kid and that was one delicacy I just couldn’t do!
In Some Like It Sinful, Chloe Nelson may be a pastry chef, but she’s a culinary school graduate and she knows her way around a kitchen. She may have traded her butcher knives for a candy thermometer, but I like to think she would have appreciated the amazing culinary offerings in Peru. Any maybe Chloe would have been adventurous enough to try the cuy!

A struggling business and one act of vandalism may have brought them together, but bakery owner Chloe Nelson and professional hockey player Griffin Lange get along like chocolate and pickles. Chloe needs the famous (and famously unattached) Griffin to attract people to her pastries, and Griffin needs the curvaceous and fiery Chloe to keep him out of trouble. A fake relationship to keep the media interested seems like the perfect plan.
But when temptation throws them into bed together, a new plan arises. Why not make the fake real? Griffin’s winning every home game, and Chloe’s business has never been better. Both know it’s only physical—and only temporary. But can they drop their defenses for love, even if it means getting a little bit sinful?
