      When Célie and Joss were teenagers Célie feel in love with him, but he seemed to only look at her as his best friend’s little sister, someone to look out for. But they became close, the brightest part of each other’s day, and just when Célie thought Joss’ feelings had changed to something romantic he left without a word, and joined the Foreign Legion gutting Célie’s heart in the process. Now five years later, Joss has shown up again in Célie’s life, proclaiming that he went away t [...]

      Thank goodness I'm finally done! I swear, this would've been so much better if half the book was cut out instead of making this book this long. Gaaah! This book gave me headaches because of Celie's indeciveness and her and Joss' going in circles for most of the time. I couldn't keep up with the two of them. One minute they're finally okay, then the next Celie's mad at Joss again! There's nothing of particular importance that happened--not until the end--and it even took only one chapter to fix t [...]

      Not my favorite Florand but a promising start to a new series, nevertheless. :)

      I had a hard time reading this and I think there are two main reasons. The first is that it isn't really much of a romance. I mean, Joss and Célie are in love way before the story starts and it's pretty clear throughout that neither one ever stopped loving the other (despite the five years Joss was in the Foreign Legion). The story works because love really isn't enough to make a relationship all by itself and both characters needed to grow into being together in important ways. I'm not sure th [...]

      Do you like beautiful writing? Do you love romances full of heart? Do you enjoy character driven stories? Do you prefer books that concentrate on feelings and characters’ growth rather that entertaining readers with angst and action?If you answered yes to the questions above, you should read Laura Florand’s books.I’ve told this not once, but it’s worth repeating: Laura Florand’s writing is gorgeous. It’s so visceral and tactile. One of her books A Wish Upon Jasmine featured a perfume [...]

      4.5 Stars. This is how much I love Laura Florand's writing. I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book and I read it that night. Stayed up all night and went into work all book sloppy. Completely worth it! This romance is delisous. As I always, I love the humanity of Florand's couples. They ache, make, mistakes, and love. The hero here is such an guy--always trying to fix things without just listening. He is great guy though. A crush and best friend from the heroines childhood. He learns how [...]

      This was my first novel by Laura Florand and quiet frankly I'm not sure what took me so long to read her books. Believe me, I'm kicking myself. I already one clicked a few other books by this author. This book was delicious and I devoured it within a day. I was nervous to start this book because sometimes military themed love really does a number on me. I found that this book was a perfect balance- also the warm fuzzier that were continually bouncing around in my stomach helped. I thought I coul [...]

    8. Mandi Schreiner on said:

      I liked this one for sure - but I also found the hero to be a little over the top in his obsession with the heroine. Suffocating a little. But the end made me smile. It will give you the warm fuzzies.

    9. Dija on said:

      the story got buried under so. many. random. and unnecessary italics and flowery writing that made no sense whatsoever. also, the heroine had serious anger management issues for 95% of the book and it got old real fast. also, teenage angst in adults is unbearable. but it's paris and it's chocolate and it's florand so i'll keep reading these books. fingers crossed they get better!

      I know how crappy it is to be a princess in a tower. Now I want someone who will include me. I'm not very good at waiting up in my tower for the prince to get back. I want to be part of the life I live. And of the life you live, too."This actually comes from a bit where our heroine Celie breaks up with the hero Joss. But I really liked that whole scene because I think Celie was very right. Celie's issues with Joss are all about the fact that he never communicates or shares his life with her, wan [...]

      I don't know why this took me two months to read! Maybe I just haven't been quite in the mood for Florand's distinct writing style. It can get a little same-y at times.But on the good, I am SO HAPPY that this series is about female chefs!! I also liked that both of these characters were entirely French. I like my home country, but I was getting tired of the heroine always having to be at least a little American.I also liked how this took on the trope of the guy leaving to "get better" for the wo [...]

      IT WAS SO GOOD!! i loved this one!!PS: still waiting for LF to write some f/f though bc damn would that be nice

      It's always a delight to receive a review copy (or indeed any copy) of one of Laura Florand's books. All For You, the first in her Paris Hearts Series, is no exception.It's difficult to know where to start in reviewing this book, because, to me at least, it has quite a different feel to many of her previous works. While the sensual writing and references to fairy tales and myths (and let's not forget the lovingly described chocolate, which you can almost taste on the page) are still there, Céli [...]

    14. JG on said:

      All for You, as the title suggests is all about first love and how one man gives his all, his very best to the only person that truly matters. Its also the latest in Laura Florand's arsenal of love stories that can guarantee you moments of heartbreak, laughter, tears and of course a rocky happily ever after that is truly worthwhile. All for You is the first book in the Paris Hearts Trilogy. Here we have an intersection of her previous series with of course The Chocolat series and if the reader i [...]

      This was a wonderfully adorable and heart-warming story. I enjoyed both Célie and Joss. They are fairly young but they know what they want and go after their goals with gusto. I liked how a lot of this story was them learning to communicate well with each other and take each other's thoughts and feelings into consideration. Seeing Dom and Jaime mentor and push them along was absolutely adorable too. As always I thoroughly enjoyed myself while reading one of Florand's books. I'm really looking f [...]

    16. Jess on said:

      I liked this but I didn't love this. I think the pacing wasn't quite what I wanted? I liked the idea of it so much, but there was just some piece of it lacking in the final read. I even reread it before writing this because I wasn't in the best mood when I read it for the first time. But no. The second proposal, though? Aces.

      This book is the sweetest and if it wasn't obvious already I'm a die-hard fan of Florand, she's a true talent with a knack for brilliant characterization.

    18. Amy on said:

      I had the pleasure of reading this beautiful story last weekend. I waited until I had dealt with all responsibilities and potential distractions. Then, I tucked myself away in my reading nook and disappeared, back to virtual Paris, via Laura Florand. *sigh* I love the Laura Florand Imagination Transportation to France! The anticipation was greate enjoyment, even greater. The heroine in All for You, Celie, was such a delight when we first met her in The Chocolate Touch. I like that Celie didn't m [...]

    19. Anne on said:

      (I received an ARC of this book in return for an unbiased review.) Let me start off by saying that this probably is not going to be the book for everyone. If you don't particularly care for conflict that could have been resolved if the hero and heroine just *talked* to each other in the first place instead of assuming, this is probably not the book for you. For me, those situations really depend on how the book is written, and how the situation resolves itself in the end. I was fascinated by Dom [...]

      4 stars. This was another good one from Laura Florand! I'm becoming a big fan of her writing. Her books are so romantic and her writing is so sensual and rich. It is so different from most books I read. The setting of Paris and the chocolate theme played a big part in the book. This book is Celie and Joss's story. They grew up together in a poor neighborhood in Paris. Joss was friends with Celie's brother, but he was her friend too and she had a big crush on him. But five years ago, he left unex [...]

    21. Stephanie on said:

      I was incredibly lucky because I got to read a pre-published draft of this book, and oh, it is so much fun. Célie is such a fabulous heroine, and the descriptions of the chocolates she makes (as one of the best chocolatiers in France) are mouthwatering. I spent a lot of the book rolling my eyes at how screwed-up the hero, Joss, was in his relationship mentality, but by the end, I completely understood where that attitude of his had come from, and I truly believed that he and Célie would be hap [...]

    22. Aoi on said:

      Laura Florand reads are my guilty pleasures, and unsurprisingly I devoured All For You in a single sitting. While there aren't many external conflicts to Celie and Joss' story, theirs is a romance with many layers. “Célie. You know I’m just a man, right?” “No!” she said indignantly. She did not know that at all. “Made of clay,” Joss said, his mouth turning down. “I’m not good enough for the way you look at me.” From their deliciously angsty adolescent romance to them reconne [...]

      Thanks to Laura, I got to take part as a beta reader for this wonderful book. As usual, Laura's writing is flawless and her characters are lovable. I really loved Joss and his lack of communicative talents. It just made him all the more endearing. Add to that his time spent in the Foreign Legion and that makes him ooh-la-la yummyfied! *slurp* *giggle* And I loved Celie's feisty character. It was so adorable that she could tease Dom and aggravate him so much! I know this is Joss and Celie's story [...]

      Reread #1 (4/6/17) I was surprised that I didn't review this book the first time around, but I definitely enjoyed ALL FOR YOU a bit more this second time. I think I found Joss's enormous, dramatic, five year endeavor a little melodramatic (and it is), by I appreciated how all the pieces of his self esteem issues fit together to explain how he treated Celie.(9/15/17) Oh, poor Joss.

    25. Lisa on said:

      First read: April 2015Oh Joss you stubborn child. I love second chance love stories, and ugh all the chocolate descriptions! Laura Florand strikes again.Reread: April 2017Reread this for the Lucien mentions I WANT HIS BOOK SO BADLY NOWalso love the cuteness that is Dominique and Jaime <3

      Célie and JossOh the beautiful, wonderful, painful angst. It was all back! I loved this one. Happy sigh. Full review to come on Fiction Vixen Book Reviews

    27. Julie on said:

      Joss and Celie -- and we see Dom again. I can't wait to read more of this series. Some times I wanted to smack them both and have them TALK it out. I adore this author :) I love that Celie wants to rescue herself and have the prince :)

    28. Kelly on said:

      Oh, that was wonderful. Ripped my heart to shreds, but sometimes that's a good thing.Update: I still loved it the second time around. I found the conflict between the characters even more compelling (and got a lot more angry at Joss).
