The Chocolate Heart (Amour et Chocolat, #5) by Laura Florand



There's something undefinable about Laura Florand's writing that guaranties your undivided attention once you start reading her works.   The Chocolate Heart is no exception. Treated with the same lush and vivid imagery and artistic touch as her previous works, there is something a little bit different, a little bit more that is added to this one. The characters of Summer and Luc, from the very beginning was not lovable at all. They were the quintessential couple of spitefulness and misunderstanding. The witty dialogue isn't sweet and endearing but simply barbs of hurt flying out from their mouths. As a reader you start thinking, are these two really meant for each other; because its not looking very good at all. But trust Ms. Florand, as she starts to unravel the tale of two soulmates destined to be together, of two people starving for affection only to be thwarted at every turn. Until, as self preservation, they deflect every sign of emotion directed at them. And, when they decide to pursue one another they find out they needed to let go and give in to what they fear the most. The Chocolate Heart is definitely a page turner that would pierce your heart with its poignancy and laughter, tempt your senses with delicious pastries and chocolates and the city that is Paris.

*The ARC for this novel was provided by the publisher and NetGalley in return for an honest review*


Summary:
No one hates Paris--except Summer Corey. The moody winters. The artists and their ennui. The inescapable shadow of the Tour Eiffel. But things go from bad to worse when Summer stumbles into brooding, gorgeous chef pâtissier Luc Leroi and indecently propositions the hero of French cuisine...

Luc has scrambled up from a childhood panhandling in the Paris Métro to become the king of his city, and he has no patience for this spoiled princess, even if she does now own his restaurant. Who cares if she smiles with all the warmth of July? She doesn't eat dessert!

There is only one way to tempt her. A perfect, impossibly sweet seduction..
