If you’re a fan of Chrissie Peria‘s The Kitchen When It Sizzles *waves hands enthusiastically*, you would be very familiar with this excerpt. This is the one with Adam Levine, coffee as cold as yesterday’s soup stock, a colorful weekend market, and the Talk. Nate is here too. Oh Nate.
Read on for more context, then click the video featuring Rachel Coates as Olivia, and Gio Gahol as Nate. Enjoy the feelings!
Olivia Nadal is an almost perfect girl with an almost perfect life. She has stunning good looks, an exciting job that pays well, men lining up to date her, and a homey little condo she calls her own. The only thing keeping her from perfection is her utter inability to cook.
Enter Nate Olivarez, a hotshot chef who’s filling in for Olivia’s cooking instructor. Sparks fly when they meet, but a fling with the visiting hottie is the last thing Olivia needs. But as things keep heating up in the kitchen, she can’t help but wonder. Can things work out between her and Nate? Or is the sizzle all set to fizzle?

You really had to be there. But if you weren’t, well too bad. Hehe. But the #romanceclass podcast gives you the next best thing.
Episode 7 of the #romanceclass podcast features a scene from The Boyfriend Backtrack by Dawn Lanuza. Gio Gahol (as Chase) and Rachel Coates (as Regina) performed this scene at Filipino Readercon last year. And it got us swooning so bad, we had to stuff our fists into our mouths to keep from erupting into a mess of feels. It really is a different kind of experience seeing Gio and Rachel perform live. Listen to the recording below, and hopefully you’d want to join us on the next live reading? Okay? Yay, GREAT!
