    4.5 StarsSun Kissed was another heartfelt, beautiful romance by Laura Florand, and as usual, I was awed by her writing talents She makes you feel so profoundly with her words that I always come away from her stories moved emotionally I swear, every time I read one of her books I m tearing up at least once because I m overcome by feelings Mack Corey is a character I ve met through his daughter s, Cade and Jaime s, stories He s a fifty three year old widower, but also the owner of Cory Chocola 4.5 StarsSun Kissed was another heartfelt, beautiful romance by Laura Florand, and as usual, I was awed by her writing talents She makes you feel so profoundly with her words that I always come away from her stories moved emotionally I swear, every time I read one of her books I m tearing up at least once because I m overcome by feelings Mack Corey is a character I ve met through his daughter s, Cade and Jaime s, stories He s a fifty three year old widower, but also the owner of Cory Chocolates, the monster chocolate company worth billions With both his daughters marrying and moving to Paris, he feels a little bit off kilter and unnecessary Yet, he has Anne Winters at his back They ve seen each other through the best of times and the worst, and Mack is finally ready to make a move on her, no longer worrying that it may ruin their friendship Breaking down Anne s walls will definitely be a challenge, because they don t call her the Ice Queen for nothing Fortunately, Mack s not afraid of a challenge in fact it ignites some fires and spurs him on I don t know if I ve told you this in the past twenty years, but since you re already at the point you re ready to knee me in the groin, I might as well go for it You re hot, Anne Anne Winters is sort of a younger version of Martha Stewart, with the same icy, perfectionist reputation as well She survived a failed marriage, became a single mother, and still managed to create a multi million dollar business Anne s come to rely on Mack and his friendship over the years, because he s always been there for her She is shocked at his sudden advances, but also very thrilled I wouldn t have guessed that we d get a story for Mack because it s not often you find a romance between fifty somethings these days Now before you start thinking that fifty is old, let me give you a few examples of how sexy a fifty year old can be George Clooney is fifty three, and oh my, does he ever exude male sexiness Dana Delany is fifty eight I still can t believe it, but I ve always thought she was beautiful and classy Anyways, I could go on and on, but you get the picture Fifty is the new thirty, lol Plus, with that age comes the knowledge of what you want, what works for you, and the confidence to go for it One of my favorite types of romances is friends to lovers, so seeing Mack and Anne s enduring friendship shift into a steamy romance was very gratifying And it was such wicked fun I loved Mack s boldness, and Anne s stunned reactions Mack was something else Yum Told you that you d run, he said, with that glittering challenge in his eyes Of course, the problem with running is that then somebody can catch you I feel like Sun Kissed was partially a reward for loyal readers, giving us a glimpse into the continued HEA of other beloved couples Jaime and Dominique s wedding was the primary setting for this story, and I felt like I was a guest as well, overflowing with happiness for these two, and yes, of course I cried Sun Kissed is a must read for all fans of Laura Florand, or any romance junkie out there Her prose is gorgeous and always manages to touch me profoundly Plus, they re utterly HOT If you haven t taken the opportunity to pick up one of her stories you are missing out Seriously, do something about it A copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review Thank you

    I have a thing for best friend turned lovers stories and this one is so good I also really enjoyed that it was about an older couple also dealing with things like their children getting married and moving on with their lives I m nowhere near that phase of life yet, but I can imagine it isn t going to be easy I enjoyed how Mack and Anne balanced and smoothed each other out I have always liked the character of Mack in the other chocolate books He s such a great dad and it was fun to get to se I have a thing for best friend turned lovers stories and this one is so good I also really enjoyed that it was about an older couple also dealing with things like their children getting married and moving on with their lives I m nowhere near that phase of life yet, but I can imagine it isn t going to be easy I enjoyed how Mack and Anne balanced and smoothed each other out I have always liked the character of Mack in the other chocolate books He s such a great dad and it was fun to get to seeof his personality than just the father role It was also fun to see all the other couples playing and having fun together at the wedding And Sylvain The Chocolate Thief is my least favorite of all Florand s books and I didn t fall for him as a hero as much as the other chocolatier, BUT I have fallen for himandin each novel he has shown up in Man does he know how to snark at and discombobulate the other heroes in the best way Loved what he did with Mack and the chocolate

    Rating 3.5 Stars Sun Kissed is a beautifully written coda to Florand s Amour et Chocolat Series Bringing together Mack Corey, the father or father figure to three of the heroines from this previously six book series as well as Anne Winters, the mother of Kurt from Snow Kissed, Florand ties together the loose threads in this extended family of French chefs, chocolate lovers, and emotionally strong individuals who have found love, often in the most unlikeliest of places Without a doubt, I d r Rating 3.5 Stars Sun Kissed is a beautifully written coda to Florand s Amour et Chocolat Series Bringing together Mack Corey, the father or father figure to three of the heroines from this previously six book series as well as Anne Winters, the mother of Kurt from Snow Kissed, Florand ties together the loose threads in this extended family of French chefs, chocolate lovers, and emotionally strong individuals who have found love, often in the most unlikeliest of places Without a doubt, I d recommend reading Sun Kissed only after having finished the rest of Florand s back list, merely because the sweet cameos of past couples and references to prior love stories will tug at your memory, further adding to the experience of this short novel Sun Kissed is a compelling romance, primarily because its protagonists are far older than the typical age group associated with young love Which is precisely what this story is not Sun Kissed is far from a tale of first love, with its healing kisses and gentle caresses Instead, it is a story of the building affection and burning love between two adults adults who have been knocked down by life, who have built walls of steel and ice around their hearts, and who have somehow persevered through watching their young family age and travel away from them Set during the wedding of Jaime Corey, Mack s youngest daughter, and Dominique Richard, an absolutely swoon worthy French chocolatier, Mack and Anne slowly realize that the only path they want into their future is one traversed together It isn t an easy romance, though For Mack, facing the reality that both his daughters have married, found spouses they want to spendtime with than their own father, and are moving to another continent entirely is a difficult admission to deal with Mack s entire life has revolved around his daughters caring for them, providing for them, making enough money for them, and loving them enough for two parents Now, to witness them simply leave everything he has built for his not so modest son in laws is to put it mildly a bit of a shock Moreover, for Anne, the tough facade she walks under refuses to drop In order to have become a wealthy and successful single mother, Anne chilled her heart with ice and sharpened her gaze with steel, intimidating every man who dared challenge her and knock her down Thus, to open her heart to Mack Corey is no easy task Florand builds their romance gradually, though, making sure to intersperse within their love story the familial issues that plague them, due to their age Kurt and Kai s heart breaking situation follows us into Sun Kissed as Anne acknowledges the fact that she may never have grand children and, worse, that her son fell in love with a woman as far removed from Anne herself It is the myriad of all these dilemmas both inner and outer that make Sun Kissed such a masterpiece to inhale.Moreover, the brief appearances made by my absolute favorite Florand heroes, from Sylvain Marquis to Philippe Lyonnais, only elevated Sun Kissed as Florand manages to keep her large host of characters distinct in their individual personalities, despite the similarities many of them share, and displays their relationships with a balance of poise and realism Nothing is sugar coated and though this novel seems to be full of happily ever afters, they are endings hard won endings that will only continue to be hard won as well

    1st read 5 12 14 Very, very nice Happy sighThis novella features Cade Jaime s dad from The Chocolate Thief and The Chocolate Touch, as well as the mother in law from Snow Kissed.Plot thoughts I m not a huge fan of Martha Stewart, or her insider trading, so I was predisposed not to feel too sympathetically towards Anne But, since this was by Florand, I read it Believe me, if it were by anyone else, I d be staying far FAR away from this type of plot Probably because I strongly believe 1st read 5 12 14 Very, very nice Happy sighThis novella features Cade Jaime s dad from The Chocolate Thief and The Chocolate Touch, as well as the mother in law from Snow Kissed.Plot thoughts I m not a huge fan of Martha Stewart, or her insider trading, so I was predisposed not to feel too sympathetically towards Anne But, since this was by Florand, I read it Believe me, if it were by anyone else, I d be staying far FAR away from this type of plot Probably because I strongly believe that rich people should have to obey the same laws as everyone else P.S I grew to like her, in spite of her MS inspiration When she spoke and interacted, then she won me over.Cover Art I hate this Why does a romance novel about a middle aged couple feature a seemingly prepubescent future clone in duck like ecstasy Way too unpleasantly YA emo looking Unsuitable and silly.Instead,since hands in pockets, to hands tentatively clasping, beaches, and view spoiler beaded bracelets hide spoiler had such an integral part in the plot, something featuring those elements would muchfitting or the nape of a woman s neck.Reread 9 6 14 Enjoyed muchthe second time around
