The Chocolate Rose by Laura Florand
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I’d normally hate the clinging and desperate wanting going on in this one, but that it’s HIM doing all that and being funny while at it is, was something different. The way she’s stuck in the middle and the way he’s so aware of everything about their situation made everything just a bit more funny and sexy. Even when it shouldn’t have been: the domineering and controlling and demanding way he could be. The bluntness in his ways, calling everything out: her desire, what they both wanted, and what they ought to be doing about it. It’s all done in his direct to the point manner that his way became sexy. That is just the way he was. She wasn’t that far off with her marshmallow comparison.
I enjoyed this: it’s a different romance between them; sure, we have another sure-cocky chef male lead… but that he’s not just that has the rest of us seeing that just because he’s sure about one thing doesn’t make him that way about all things; that vulnerable side to him? It was… adorable.
I can’t seem to get enough of this series… so Chocolate Touch here I come!
