I found Laura Florand’s books a few months ago when I listened to a podcast she participated in over at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books
I bought Once Upon a Rose and I was immediately lost among the aromatic rose bushes in France. Rock star and songwriter, Layla heads to a cottage in France which she inherited from a long lost relative. Only problem is the cottage is on land that Matt also owns with the rose bushes that provide his livelihood.
And y’all, the sexual tension was so taut that by time they finally kissed, I was sweating and there was steam come from my Kindle.
This continued to happen throughout the book, every time Layla and Matt were together, touching, looking, laughing, eating, walking through the rose gardens. OH MY!
And I thought surely this was a fluke. She couldn’t do this again could she?
My library didn’t have any of the La Vie En Roses series but they did have the first book in the Amour et Chocolat series.
Cade Corey is an American in Paris and she is there to learn all about chocolate from master Chocolatier, Sylvain Marquis.
Things don’t go exactly as Cade had planned but her attraction to the explosive Sylvain is something she can’t deny.
And when these two finally get together, I had to get up and walk around fanning myself because I was sweating and panting as if I’d been jumping rope in the attic.
Then when I had calmed down, I went back and reread that part. Because it was HOT.
If you don’t believe me, go ahead and grab one of her books. You’ll see for yourself that she knows how to write sexual tension that will build and build until finally your Kindle explodes!
