Originally osted hereApparently I ve had a draft of a review for The Chocolate Temptation by Laura Florand sitting in my dashboard for the Spanked in her Messy Diaper (An ABDL Tale) past few months I dusted it off and tweaked it just in time for Amour et Florand this weekend It s always aleasure to read a book by one of your favorite authors The Chocolate Temptation is Tales From Underwood part of the Amour et Chocolat series and the books can be read out of order because they stand well enough on their own However the characters in The Chocolate Temptation were earlier featured in The Chocolate Heart so I think it would be a good idea to read the latter first I was intrigued by Patrick in The Chocolate Heart so I m delighted that he got his own bookOut of all the Amour et Chocolat novels The Chocolate Temptation stands out because one of the main characters is a femaleastry chef I know how male dominated the industry is since I have a cousin abroad who works in that field so it s After the Kiss (Sex, Love Stiletto, pretty interesting to get a better idea of what things are like from Sarah soint of view I think Sarah is a great character I love how brave she is in terms of changing career Malcolm McDonald on Marketing Planning paths She s an intelligenterson with an engineering degree from Caltech She could have been living comfortably in the States while working as an engineer and yet she chooses to throw that away to Digital Marketing In A Week pursue a culinary career I admire her guts and herassion for what she feels is the right Le commerce des fourrures en occident a la fin du moyen-age (2 vol) path for her Patrick is also veryassionate about being a Starlight Elixirs and Cosmic Vibrational Healing pastry chef He was once a foster child but he has risen to the top of the culinary ladder and is now one of the bestastry chefs in Paris I liked Patrick s easygoing nature and how he s constantly being likened to a beach bumsurfer guy What a contrast to the demanding and hectic workplace that they thrive in He also has a terrific sense of humor which he uses to relieve the Authority Affiliate Marketing pressure that everyone feels in their work environment I also loved the dynamics between his relationship with Luc especially after getting Luc s POV from The Chocolate HeartSarah thinks of herself as the lowly intern and she obviously looks up to Patrick as her mentor Being attracted to each other without knowing what the othererson is feeling gives their relationship tension that stretches out over the months of Sarah s internship They both feel that liking the other Using Twitter For Business (Stuff Made Simple Book 4) person is inappropriate since Patrick is essentially one of Sarah s bosses and yet they can t help feeling that way I loved this bit of comparison of their romance to their creationsThis thing between them was like this beautiful fairytale of a dessert constructed out of work and caution and risk and whimsy Leaping and twirling full of color and taste a wrong breath could break it And yet night after night in the kitchens they made such fragile magics and waiters got that fragility all the way to the tables they were meant forSuch a beautiful way of describing what began as a tentative romance that slowly developed into something deeper Given howassionate they are about their work it s not surprising how strong their feelings are for each other I m not usually a fan of workplace romance but Laura Florand handles it so well I had such a lovely time reading about Sarah and Patrick from how they started getting to know each other outside the workplace to how much they re willing to sacrifice to make the other Anatomy of the Orchestra person happy At thisoint I feel like I m a broken record because I keep recommending Laura Florand s books But that s only because they re SO GOOD Go forth and read them 01192014 Overall Rating "45 StarsBook Cover Book Blurb Book Title 4 35 5 4

Way He Will Break Her Heart Someday Even Without Realizinghe will break her heart someday even without realizing Sarah and Patrick get closer however they begin to realize that their facades of Hard Cold Winter (Van Shaw, perfection are just that masks For me the Florand s novels always have a two fold appeal One the tension As I keep mentioning Florand s writing is divine It just curls its way into your heart creating emotion where there was none before And two the depth Each of Florand s novels are romances about broken individuals not necessarily broken in the same way or to the same degree but who have barriers around their lives What Iarticularly love is that she tackles a new issue with every one of her books making them all such a delight to read With Sarah and Patrick both of them suffer from severe insecurity Sarah as a replacement child for the son who was killed in North Korea never feels as if she s up to the mark and Patrick a foster child feels the same Nevertheless seeing them work through their struggles and find a way to trust and support one another was heart warmingMoreover what I really love about Sarah and Patrick s relationship is that each of them have different dreams but make conscious efforts to ursue them Sarah for instance was a successful engineer in Caltech but she left her home and family behind to begin her life long wish of sugar making Both the courage and guilt Sarah feels at ursuing her own dream selfishly some would say is depicted erfectly Similarly Patrick who ironically wishes he could be an engineer undergoes a mental journey as he realizes that dreams change with time and what he wanted as a twelve year old boy is not necessarily what he wants as a man now Florand always touches upon such honest aspects "of adult life with her novels that I feel enriched having read them "adult life with her novels that I feel enriched having read them the last few chapters of this book could veer on the lovey dovey side her books never fail to sate my thirst and bring a smile upon my face Just as I expected The Chocolate Temptation is a winner another oneYou can read this review and on my blog Ivy Book Bindings.
