The hubby and I recently took a sushi-making class. It was while we were in Mexico, but none the less, still authentic. Sushi has always been a staple for our date nights. We’ve even made sushi at home several times, but we never knew what we were doing. At best, we ended up with loosely clumped balls of rice and fish and seaweed that we had to eat with a fork. When the opportunity to take a proper class with a top sushi chef presented itself, we were both excited. They had a hard time finding a chef’s coat that fit hubby, and he couldn’t fit under the exhaust hood but we made it work. As it turns out, there are a few little tricks of the trade that make the roll perfect, and now we know how to do it properly! And bonus, nobody got hurt with the cleavers…or food poisoning.

Eighteen-year-old Tienne Desrochers grew up in the rough world of the Noir et Bleu. Bikers. Outlaws. But after her dad’s murder, Tienne decides she’s had enough. She refuses to end up like her junkie mom. So she grabs her younger brother and leaves it all behind…including her boyfriend, Aiden Gyllenhall.
More comfortable in the middle of a bar fight than at a country club, living with her wealthy aunt and uncle is an adjustment, to say the least. No swearing. Designer shoes that pinch. And pretty, preppy boys like Leland Crofton instead of super-sexy, tattooed Aiden. But even the upper class can’t escape the rancid touch of underworld violence. And this time, Tienne won’t just learn who she really is—she’ll learn how to fight for what’s hers.
