Published: April 5, 2016

A Michelin two-star chef at twenty-eight, Violette Lenoir could handle anything, including a cocky burglar who broke into her restaurant in the middle of the night.

Or so she thought.

Elite counterterrorist operative Chase “Smith” had been through things that made Hell Week look easy. But nothing had prepared him for a leather-clad blonde who held him at bay at knifepoint and dared him to take her on.

Now if only saving the world didn’t require he ruin her life.

Two people who thought they could handle anything now have to take on each other. 

It's a battle neither one expected. But with their futures on the line, they have nothing to lose...but their hearts.

Warning: This book contains one arrogant Navy SEAL, nights of Paris passion, and a woman who wants to have it all.

Rating: ☕☕☕☕☕ (5 cups! Because its Laura Florand and Paris, with action adventure and food!)
Chase Me, part of the Paris Night series, has the same tone but different vibe from Ms. Florand's other series. It still has that charm and uniquely Florand touch in the story but its definitely lighter and heavy on the charming banter.  Plus not much food, unless its take out.

Chase Me starts with a breaking and entering hero who happens to whip up his charming good looks when knives starts whizzing pass him.  Enter our passionate and brave heroine who may have a weakness for puppy dog eyes and lighthearted banter.  And we now have one of the most fun and entertaining reads of 2016.

This was such a delight to read, absolutely you would not be able to put it down.  It was enlightening to see how Chase and Vi channel their way into their romance, to meld as a couple, to foresee a future together despite the fact that they have their own independent lives and careers.  There was a lot of surprising twists and turns here plus introductions to other characters that feel like they may get their own stories told someday.  Overall, readers will adore Chase Me even if there wasn't a lot of yummy food involved :)
