She’s supposed to be teaching him about healthy cooking, but instead, he’s going to learn about love…

After Rob nearly dies from a heart attack, his daughters give him an ultimatum: get healthy or else. To help him along, they hire a personal chef to teach him how to cook and change his diet.

Renee specializes in heart-healthy vegetarian food, but her new student is a little stubborn. The grumpy military veteran doesn’t want to replace his bacon with tofu, and he really doesn’t want to give up his fast food habit. But she’s got a few tricks up her sleeve and she’s not giving up until he learns to love vegetables as much as he loves meatloaf.

When things heat up in the kitchen, these two jaded souls are going to have to learn how to compromise, and not just about dessert…

“Roasting with Rob” is a steamy instalove romantic comedy featuring a midlife couple, matchmaking family members, and a sweet happily ever after.
