Books Not To Miss

 allforyou

  • All for You by Laura Florand (Book 1 in Paris Hearts Series, April 2015)
    Laura Florand writes some of the most romantic contemporary romances on the market today. Most take place in Paris (or other locations in France) and feature chefs who create masterful chocolate concoctions. All for You was a bit different for me because the romance had a very sweet, first love feel to it. Celie is a Paris chocolatier, one who has made her own life after her brother’s friend Joss mysteriously disappeared one day, many years ago, to join the French Foreign Legion. He returns to Paris, having made something of himself in order to be worthy of Celie. However, Celie is not impressed. She loved Joss and wanted only to be with him. Joss has a hard time understanding this point and must transform himself to become the man that Celie needs. Celie is a strong and confident heroine who refuses to settle. It takes Joss several attempts to get it right, but he is adorable in his confusion. His love for Celie, however, is never in question. Unlike most books by Florand that I have read, All for You did not make me sob - it only made me tear up a bit. I recommend any and all books by Laura Florand; they are delightful, emotionally satisfying and deliciously heartfelt.

RippedRipped, the second book in the Blood Money series by Edie Harris is out this week. Tobias, the eldest of the Faraday clan, is the hero of Ripped, and he is a man on a mission to exact revenge on behalf of his sister Beth (the details of this are told in the first book, Blamed). He has the woman he holds responsible, Chandler McCallister, in custody. Chandler is a disavowed British spy, but she has connections in Moscow to those responsible for Beth’s torture. Tobias needs Chandler’s help, and she agrees to help if Tobias will let her attend her sister’s wedding. Things do not go as planned, of course, and the two end up in Moscow ahead of schedule. Is Chandler a friend or foe? Does she return Tobias’ feelings? How will these two overcome their seemingly insurmountable obstacles?

Review: Taken by Charlotte Stein

Series: Under the Skin, book three

 

Summary:
It was just a prank I didn't want to be a part of. I never meant to hurt anyone, least of all Johann Weir. You wouldn't know that he sells literature for a living. He has these wild eyes—eyes that light something up in me—and he must be twice as big as I am, with strong, warm hands. Hands I try not to imagine everywhere.
