It works damn great As far as French male leads are concerned I'll take these ones Not the romantic world fantasy but a great deal of flaws a brush of adorable family members who can't mind their own business and the ability to say fuck you when they're upset even if they blush and apologize immediately after because oh shit that's not how they've been raised but come on why did you for the mother of god stop talking please You want to know a stereotype which is often true when it comes to French?We loooooooooooooove talking Almost as much as we love arguing And of course we're always right Duh But moving on In those French male leads I can believe I may love them even because there's no such thing as a prince and franchement? I don't want one and neither does Jasmin in the end Add an heroine I can root for strong despite her insecurities believably flawed let's say and you get a happy Anna This being said I can see readers being annoyed by her lack of self esteem concerning relationships it didn't bother me too much because Damien doesn't take advantage of them and has than his fair share of insecurities too but it did grit on my nerves at some pointIf I barely know Grasse the city where the story takes place and by barely I mean that I might have visited it 20 years ago with my parents but probably focused on ice cream or something I can safely say that the way life is described is rather believable and I sympathized with Jasmin who arrives from New York and is uite unsettled by people's reactions Look I'm a former Parisian who lives in the South In the country Did I fall in love with the calm and the beautiful landscapes? Of course Do I enjoy living there? Yes Do I start bouncing around people sometimes because please can we get started for fuck sake? Hmm hmm Do I want to shake people each time someone tells me that's the way things have always been? Hell yes I can't even imagine how disturbing it must be to arrive from New York The Rosier's family can be upsetting at first but Strip off the growls and you'll find such endearing characters I love them all Having said all that I loved that the plot was centered around the perfume business because first of all that's not something I often see and over the issues dealt with were sadly realistic it is difficult for these little cities to survive now that every company must be worldwide and local handicraft like perfumery in Grasse suffers a lot from the lack of competitiveness In that regard Damien's struggles appeared authentic to me and allowed me a better understanding of his sometimes ruthless behavior► GOOD Indeed it contains the right amount of cheesiness to stay on the adorable side of my scale and the interactions made me smile often than not I do have a soft spot for brotherly banter and old scheming grandparents Pépé and Tante Colette are fantastic And then just like that there were four male bodies wrestling If any of you end up needing the hospital I expect you to drive yourself Tata Véro said flipping a page I'm retired She winced a little at a particular thudding sound peeked at her son in the mass and then looked immediately back at the photo album ► What about my romance peeves?✘ No girl hate but women who are open to friendship✘ No asshole as a male lead but a believable flawed hero who can be a jerk but also damn sweet✘ No instalove in the book but our couple did suffer from this weird disease when they first met they fought after I forgive themSo all in all what this book offered me were several hours of smiles and escape Maybe it will be the same for you but frankly? I can't say at this point I guess you'll have to try it to know^^► Book 1 Once Upon a Rose ★★★ For of my reviews please visit

Book ✓ A Wish Upon Jasmine Ê Laura Florand

To have to fight as dirty as only Damien canBut Jess knows how to fight dirty too And these days she has nothing left to loseCertainly not her heartCome explore the south of France a world of heat and fragrance and tales as old as time through the stories of the five powerful Rosier cousins and the women who win their hearts A Wish Upon Jasmine book two in Florand’s addictive new series La Vie en Roses “Explosive sensual and utterly sweet” Eloisa Jam Ten reasons I fell in love with A Wish Upon Jasmine by Laura Florand 1 beautiful writingIt’s funny that my only complaint about the first book in this series Once Upon a Rose was Laura Florand’s flourish writing Yet her gorgeous lush writing was exactly what I craved this time I guess my enjoyment of a book is hugely influenced by my current mood I was recently sick and my reading was very limited I’m sure you are familiar with this fogginess and inability to comprehend and enjoy a book when you are ill So when I was finally feeling better I was dying to read a beautifully written book with romance A Wish Upon Jasmine was just thisThere is something magical in Laura Florand’s writing It’s so rich and sensual I wanted to savor every word I highlighted so many passages and I’m sure I’ll be rereading this book in the future2 romanceI was swept off my feet with the romance It’s very different from the romance in Once Upon a Rose While the first book was cute and sweet A Wish Upon Jasmine was serious and dark There was so much hurt tension and raw emotions between Damien and Jess but their story was no less alluring Their interactions were so sensual and their lovemaking on a riverbank was one of the most intense and raw erotic scenes in my reading life They had the mad trust and hope and betrayal of two strangers in New York and from today they hadhe didn’t know what they had It felt raw everywhere what they had Like it might be something good if it could grow but right now the fresh exposed skin of it was sensitive to every touch3 kissesI’m a romantic and I love kisses in books So much so that I made a feature about my favorite kisses on my blog And kisses in this book were utterly delicious Kisses and kisses and kisses in the dark against her door with the scent of jasmine sneaking in among those kisses as if the flowers too wanted to touch The night brushing cool silk around them after the heat of the day Her hair under his fingers her skin against his lips4 emotionsThis book was so emotionally charged There was of course the hurt between main couple But there was also Jess’ grieving about her father She never knew what might come out of her heart when she loosed that stopper on it Sometimes still it was this great wail of grief Sometimes it was something even crueler like hope5 DamienI loved Matt from Once Upon a Rose but it was Damien who intrigued me the most I was impatiently waiting for his story I wanted to learn about his mysterious man I loved his complexity I loved how vulnerable he was under his ruthless armor Not a villain of a man Not a superficial player But a man who carried chests down from the attic for his old aunt and tried to catch the moon for his mother and who may not have understood how easily wounded she could be six months ago but who hadn’t meant her any harm at all Not a shark not an assassin A warrior A hero6 Rosier familyI met Rosier family like old friends The family became a living and breathing organism here and it was fascinating to see different types of family relationships I liked dynamic between Matt Damien Tristan and Raoul Laura Florand continues to explore complex relationships between the cousins They are very close Under all competition and teasing they care deeply about each other And of course Tante Colette with her shenanigans and matchmaking was very entertainingDamien was very devoted to his family He took a role of ruthless and cold businessmen who make money and support others so they can dream and do what they love He was “the mean one” He was tired of this role his family put on him but he was willing to make sacrifices for them He didn’t realize that his relatives appreciated his sacrifices He’d sacrifice himself of course I think he does that all the time That’s why we have a saying in the family Be careful what you wish for Damien will get it for you So that we remember you know—not to take too much advantage of thatOne uote that brings light on cousins’ relationships Over there by a stack of burlap sacks Damien—the tough impervious cool ruthless one—had lifted a hand and was letting jasmine blooms drift from his fingers all over Jess’s upturned face his expression so tender and so exposed that Tristan and Raoul immediately jerked around to put their backs to it Then they abandoned the vat to find some excuse to stand between Damien and the factory doors so that anyone who poked a head in wouldn’t see Damien stark naked like that7 scentsThis series is centers around perfume industry Jess is a perfumer so scents play a big role in this book And thanks to Laura Florand’s tactile and sensual writing it was such a delight to read Also her descriptions of jasmine harvest were wonderful It smelledit made him think of impossible things This clear glimmering purity of hope like the birth of a baby star He loved it It had this chest tightening emotion packed into it like standing beside a cradle in the dark looking down at your firstborn child8 settingThe author created such a vivid picture of Grasse I want to visit The South of France one day9 humorAs always Laura Florand found a perfect balance between sadness and humor There were a lot of funny moments And of course the alien photo appeared again Remember that time all our favorite toys disappeared and we found ransom notes in their place? That’s the beauty of family Never too late for payback10 figs The figs were irresistibleThey definitely were There were several scenes where figs were present and I absolutely loved this theme I’m a little biased here Many years ago I spent holidays in Crimea with my husband actually we weren’t even engaged then We rented a house near shore and there was an old fig tree So every day on our way to the beach we each plucked a fig and eat them So yes I feel very nostalgic and romantic about fig trees Though I’ve never heard that figs were male sex symbols Lol Silence Peaceful and yet dangerous The kind of protected space where anything could happen And everything was so sensual As if you could pick up time and caress it in your fingers Sink your toes into it curl them into its clinging grains Take a bite of it and it would burst sweet and lush on your tongue Once upon that time a young Roman soldier might have tempted his girl with a fig as they curled up here in peace and desire END I irrevocably fell in love with Laura Florand’s writing and the wonderful characters she’d created I’m looking forward to the next book in this series While I wait for it I’ll probably read her Amour et Chocolat seriesYou can find my reviews
