"Suffocating in a dead-end marriage, Midwesterner Zoey Sullivan fled to New York and moved in with her older sister Ruth, a carefree, vivacious beauty with a string of eligible bachelors at her beck and call. Giving herself three months in the city to clear her head and find a direction, Zoey dodges calls from her ex Derek, and distracts herself by cooking and catering a few private dinners and parties. Pursuing her passion for cooking was never an option when she was with Derek, and now Zoey relishes her independence. When Zoey meets reclusive millionaire Tristan Malloy, she’s blown away by his kitchen -- a marble and stainless steel temple worthy of the culinary gods -- and charmed by his impeccable gentlemanly manners. But despite his firm body, handsome looks, and piles of cash, Tristan -- a computer programmer -- is shy and more than a little socially awkward. Zoey is sure that Tristan has all the right raw ingredients -- and she’s the right person to spice them up and turn him into a delectable dish. But Zoey’s unprepared for just how well her makeover works. Tristan turns out to be even sexier once he’s gained a little confidence and the right wardrobe. Beneath the gorgeous package, Tristan is a great guy who deserves a woman who really appreciates him. Slowly but surely, Zoey realizes she may have found her perfect match -- but does Tristan even know how her feelings have changed? Is that warm look in his eyes gratitude for the new and exciting world she’s ushered him into, or something more? And what will happen when Zoey’s ex comes to town, looking to win her back? " --

This audiobook was really fun. If you love a good Hallmark/Lifetime movie this is for you!

'Under the Table' is pretty formulaic but also a quick read if you want to be entertained. It's not a bodice ripping romance but more of a sweet-get-your-toothbrush Hallmark romance. The one bit of steamy is so over the top and out of character it suspends belief. Something had to move the story line forward and steamy seemed to be it.
