Frankly finding it hard to understand why this was ever published. The characters lack any sort of depth and the actual plot of the book is thin, if even in existence at times.
Very unrealistic progression of time and life (quitting a job and starting a successful food business within a few weeks, finding a gorgeous flat with private garden in London, etc...), and I don't know how we are meant to connect with either of the main characters - all Katie does is whither at the first sign of trouble in her relationship, and all Tim does, when pondering upon the end of his relationship, is think about how Katie looked (if I read 'her full breasts' one more time I think I might scream!) rather than things they did together and what they talked about.
Also, there is terrible punctuation throughout the whole novel - missing commas, inappropriate use of apostrophes, and endless, ENDLESS question marks tagged onto the end of sentences that aren't questions.
A very frustrating read - I simply cannot leave a book once I've started reading it - but this was painful and irritating.

I very rarely dislike a book so much as to say that I actually "did not like it" or that I actually considered not finishing it at all, but my favourite part of this book was when my Kindle showed I had read 100%. The story follows food technologist Katie (and don't we just know she's a food technologist - every meal she eats is described in vivid, tedious detail) as she breaks up with her partner Tim, a chef, after he treats her badly. Within the space of about three weeks Katie has got a mortgage, left her job of eight years, and set up her own new business (Katie must also be a miracle worker). However the three weeks in question take up about 40% of the book, and describe every conversation, every meal, every feeling, every thought process in great detail, which becomes very tiresome, and Katie's entire relationship is analysed, a number of times, with her two best friends Sarah and Lisa who are, of course, opposite personalities.

There are a couple of "sexy" scenes in the book, but these are very uncomfortable reads, one of them happens as the female is kneading bread while a man stands behind kneading her breasts, and another happens after the male strokes a courgette! I dread to think how many times the phrase "Katie's full breasts" or "'Katie's tiny waist" were repeated through the book, every time she gets dressed or puts an apron on. There was the odd chapter written from Tim's point of view, but these didn't chronologically fit in with the rest of the book, and every single one ended up with Tim having a "straining in his trousers" either because he was thinking about Katie, or thinking about a young blonde piece he'd seen in a cupcake shop.

A well written chick lit. The characters are all fab, storyline is great and I was totally mesmerised by the book and couldn't put it down.

There were some entertaining bits and characters (not the main ones), but on the whole, this was a very poor read! Let's see: superficial and unbelievably immature main characters who yet manage somehow to get over heartbreak, meet and feel terribly attracted to other people, leave a job start a business buy a house and make up again - all within weeks of a supposedly crushing and incredibly stupid breakup; bad punctuation (what's up with all the randomly placed question marks?); gratuitous and annoying advertisement (why do I need to know how great the main character thinks some other writer is? And why do I need to know about how great specific bars and hotels in London are - did the author get perks for mentioning them?); endless talk of voluptuous breasts and tiny waists and erections and sexual arousal ... Thank goodness it was a free Kindle library book!

This collection is quite simply DELICIOUS. Pick it up for a chance to dip in and get your appetites - both culinary and romantic! - rolling. Well done.

Yes chef, No chef is a typical chick-lit book of, friendship, drama and love. It is based on the relationship of Katie and Tim. Katie is a pleasurable, hard-working, lovable girl who you connect to more or less straight away. Tim is her obnoxious, arrogant partner who likes a drink and has a huge stubborn streak.
The story watches their relationship crumble and both trying to lead a life apart. Katie with the help of her two best friends Sarah and Lisa. Tim with his colleagues Jessie, Simon and best friend Luke. With both focusing on their careers to help them along, Tim in his new role as head chef and Katie's case a new culinary adventure cooking for Discernible men. Or to you and me men who can't cook.

I connected with both Katie and Tim in different ways. You really do feel for both of them and wish them both not to be so stubborn. Katie ends up in some sticky situations which will have you giggling along to and Tim well you either want to punch him in the mouth or hug him.

The book has been written from both sides of Katie and Tim's relationship. Now, I like books wrote this way, I find it easier to read and gives better depth and understanding of the characters and their personalities. With this book though, it seems to side more with Katie. Even though Tim does have his say, to me it does tend to lean more towards her. Now this may be deliberate, I'm unsure but, it throws you slightly. It also doesn't run very clearly between both either. You end up back tracking a few days with the next person and it loses a bit of depth and anticipation. I also found that sometimes the food references where a bit over powering. It seemed like it was constantly being thrown in my face.
