saccharine Too much Just enoughI can t uite decide I have lots of highlights I enjoyed Laura Florand s writing as usual She s researched and she is detailed In fact it sounds like part of her research for this was in the late Laurent Jeannin s kitchen I believe this level of detail really throws you into her books and at the very least they don t feel lazy or shortcut Her books are very sensuous and this was no exception I remember when I read the first I think in this series and how long it takes for the hero and heroine to actually meet and yet it was somehow still sexy as all hellSummer Corey hates desserts Luc Leroi is a perfectionist who creates them He puts pieces of his heart into those desserts serving himself up on the platter What resulted was a somewhat awkward painful and ultimately kind of delicious story Luc is a very controlled man but we come to understand that is not the case around Summer And Lord knows I love a hero who doesn t just take a uick fuck for his

focus and passion into his craft And dear lord he tries Which is lovely He didn t let Summer get away because he makes little stumbles reiterating that he ll try until he s perfect for herThe issue of the story is with Summer she is a big hearted seemingly spoiled brat who has suffered neglect and often comes off as emotionally immature When Luc rejects her advances her offers to buy a yacht upon first meeting she s a bit bitter about it She continually rejects his heart on a plate desserts because she doesn t eat desserts She argues with her clearly neglectful even if well meaning parents about giving her the hotel in a 3 month trial run to connect the island she lives and loves teaching at with a satellite for better connectivity I don t know I get it and it s manipulative but she s
