Greg and Tara are a force
I loved the whole Restaurant competition, and it added to the story.
Luca was in love with James for so long, and Dylan was in love with Luca, but in the end it worked out for the best.
Dylan was a formidable business man and a down to earth human, who loved his family and Luca's dad.
I loved how it all played out

I have to say Tara Lain knocked this one out of the park! Love, love, love her unique twist to my all time favorite fairytale romance Sabrina, and a great choice in narrators. Greg Tremblay did a amazing job bringing all of the characters to life. This book is definitely top of my list of books I will listen to again and again. Looking forward to your next book!

Sabrina remake with three hot men – audio review
Some books just hit the perfect note and Tara Lain’s Return of the Chauffeur’s Son is that book. I was never a huge fan of the movie Sabrina, but this remake is creative, imaginative, and just plain fun.
Luca is the chauffeur’s son, recently returned from a prestigious position in a restaurant, who has come home to Napa to be close to his dad, take a new job, and see if his boyhood crush on James Armstrong is still as fierce as ever.
Always treated respectfully by the Armstrong family, Luca grew up close to the younger son. Only when he returns does he discover his crush and friend is engaged to a very nice woman. Disappointed, although not as much as he thought he would be, Luca throws himself into this new job at Culinary Arts. All the local restaurants partake in an annual cooking competition and Luca’s new employer has lost several times to its archrival. So all hopes and pressure are put on Luca to win the prize.
No pressure, right?
Except there are rumours of spies everywhere. Oh, and James has decided he’s bisexual and puts Luca in his sights, despite his sweet fiancée.
Could be, except for Dylan, the eldest son in the Armstrong family. He is openly gay – not experimenting – and he sees James callously hurting everyone around him. He is focused on growing the family business, but keeps a close eye on his younger brother and tries to head off trouble at the pass.
I love the trope of a pseudo-love triangle. Because although Luca has always had a crush on James, Dylan is now on his radar. There is also a lot of love in the Armstrong family and that includes Luca and his father. Proof that not everyone views social class as everything.
The ending is predictable, of course, but I love the dénouement. Like I said, another Tara Lain hit. Low angst, lots of laughter, and most of all, a world where men are loved for who they are and not who they are attracted to. Or who they eventually fall in love with.
Greg Tremblay is one of my favourite narrators and he did a great job. This is a great listen.
