First came chocolate. Then came men. Then came chocolate and men and sex. 3 things that go together like no other erotic combination in the world. What makes these 3 things so intoxicating is not the endless amount of hours a girl could get lost.. But that society doesn’t really give a damn. It is perfectly acceptable by those invisible Standard Bearers to indulge in and perversely explore any number of acts that include a handful of chocolate, a big warm bed, and a hot-blooded man. And Laura Florand’s The Chocolate Thief does just that. Cade Corey is the heir apparent to Corey Bars, a chocolate industries juggernaut. And Cade has a dream. She dreams of bringing the finest Parisian chocolate to her family’s company, and Sylvain Marquis is the chocolatier that will help her do just that. Except, Sylvain has no desire to have Corey Bars on the labels of HIS chocolate. But Cade is not taking no for an answer. And what ensues is a delightful, fun, and extremely sensual ride. I had such a good time reading this book. It always makes me so happy when I can discover a new author with a fresh and flirty writing style. And Florand has that kind of writing style in spades. I loved Cade. I loved the moody Frenchman, Sylvain. And I loved that Cade went after what she wanted, using any means necessary. And I hope that I will get to read more of their story. This is definitely chick lit worth reading.
This was an exhausting read. These peeps were so screwed up. But I did enjoy it. Although, I thought Malpas could have been a bit more concise in her storytelling. But I'll hang around for the 3rd and final installment.
This was a surprisingly entertaining book. Despite that ridiculous book cover. But I sincerely hope in the next book, Alessandra gets a good editor. Because there is no excuse for mixing up your and you're, over and over again.
Since so many of my goodreads friends have read and raved, I decided to finally read it. And I wouldn't say I was disappointed exactly. But I will say it took me longer to get through this book than it should have. I liked the story. I liked the 2 main characters. And the sex scenes were pretty darn hot. But for some reason it all felt too easy, too boring. I wanted higher stakes here. I think if there were, I would have been much more invested. But it still wasn't a bad few hours of reading.
