The Chocolate Rose Review

The Chocolate Rose (Amour et Chocolat, La Vie en Roses) - Laura Florand

From Paris to summer in Provence, a steamy encounter between top chef Gabriel Delange and the daughter of his worst enemy, Jolie Manon. Hot-tempered Gabriel isn't above blackmail to get what he wants, but what he wants might very well be Jolie herself. Because in the heat and sun of Provence, where jasmine and roses climb up old colored walls and fountains play in ancient stone villages, even a beast can prove he is a prince at heart . . .



Oh, I am having so much fun reading this great series.


Its charming. I adore the heroes and the heroines. This one is very funny as neither the heroine or the heroine can stop thinking about sex. This smoldering makes for a great slow seduction and make outs


I love how open hearted and steadfast the hero is. Love it. I love that the heroine faces real dilemmas.


And then we have chocolate and the South of France and romantic gestures and everything else.


Another five star read for me. I don't think I have given one writer so many five star reviews in a row since Julie Garwood, Pamala Morsi, or SEP.


I think it is because Florand really masters her contermpary romance with a dash of comedy genre. The little details make each book special and the quality of her couples are comforting. Each book is such a pleasure.


I will be rereading this series for years to come.
