My rating: 3 of 5 stars
All For You has everything that's sweet and nice with what's a touch sad --- a combination that's become quintessentially Florand to me. Well, all that plus chocolate. And France.
There's a complimentary nature to how they come together. It's not a completing as they're both introduced as the outcomes of their respective labor. But why that is is what touches on some of the sad-bitter but more on the real and later, triumphant. It's that last that has the two coming together complete and aware of who they were before and are now, plus all that has (and hasn't) gone into the making of that second.
But it is that they remain (flawed) despite all that that leaves them both possible to me. That she is colorful and emotional and heart on sleeve or that he does all those things for her, because of her... without telling her! Neither their flaws are not remedied by the other, but there's a work toward better for each other.
MOSTLY it's their strength I have come to recognize to be a hallmark of Florand's heroines; strength unrecognized but real all the same. In fact, the same can be said for their male counterparts... how good they all are but how blinded they are from that fact.
