Review: The Chocolate Touch by Laura Florand

The GingerSnap’s review I love chocolate. I love Paris. I read the first book in this series and didn’t hate it. That means I should’ve at least found this book tolerable, right? Wrong, friends, wrong. I hated this book so much that I had to bribe myself with banana bread to actually finish it (“You can only get another slice of banana bread if you get to 75% first”, I told myself). This book tells the story of Jamie (Jamie? Which is her real name? Unsure, since it switches in the book) Corey, who has come to Paris to recover from injuries sustained during her humanitarian work with fair trade cacao farmers, and Dominique Richard, one of Paris’ best chocolatiers and a perpetual grouch who takes an immediate liking to Jame/ie when she sits silently in his cafe for days in a row, sampling and savouring his confections.

Review: Seared by Suleikha Snyder

The Faerie Queen’s review I DID NOT KNOW THIS WAS GOING TO BE A BDSM STORY. Ok, now that that’s out there, I can breathe again. I don’t mind BDSM stories, and I’ve enjoyed several in the past, but it would have been nice to know it was one going in. But honestly, that was torture, and not of a good kind. It started out ok, if a bit more on the erotica-sans-plot side. Then a plot was introduced, but I never cared. Because I couldn’t bring myself to care about the characters. Fine, I cared enough to force myself to the finish line, but only because the book is like 150 pages long. And yet it took a lot of willpower to read one page after the next. But I got there, and I can say with 100% certainty that this book and I were not meant for each other. […]

Review: North to You by Tif Marcelo

The GingerSnap’s review I picked this book as part of our “Foodie February” theme, and oooh am I glad I did! I love any romance that somehow includes food in the plot, and this book delivered. I was drooling every time the word “panini” was mentioned, and by the time cake pops were being crafted, I was so hungry I was ready to raid my kitchen, book in hand. This book follows the trials and tribulations of Camille Marino and Drew Bautista. Camille is the owner of Lucianna, a food truck that she runs with her best friend, Jasmine. The truck is dedicated to turning out delicious Italian-inspired eats that Camille crafts herself, using the knowledge and prowess her grandmother taught her. Camille is also the sole guardian of her little sister, Ally, a talented young artist with big dreams. Between juggling the truck and Ally, Camille’s plate is already pretty […]
