Upon starting this book immediately after finishing Labrecque's delightful Barely Mistaken, I didn't believe that there was any chance that I would like this one nearly as well. I was completely wrong, and I may have actually liked Better Than Chocolate even more than Barely Mistaken. For shorter books, both are great, enjoyable reads.

Better Than Chocolate features Eve Carmichael, a supremely ambitious New York business woman who is focused on a promotion that she is anxious to attain. Eve's co

Four and a half stars.

Excellent! Nearly better than chocolate ;)

I love those enemies/competitors-to-lovers stories, and Ms. LaBrecque does a stellar job with this one. Eve and Jack are both formidable competitors, and it's a treat to watch them give as good as they've got. I love that Ms. LaBrecque keeps the story focused on the two of them discovering what they have in common and the growing attraction and mutual respect.

Ms. LaBrecque also provides some very likeable supporting characters, and

This story starts slow but the pace picks up and is worth continuing once begun. Having said that, it is a sweet story about two people competing against one another, not trusting one another, and intensely attracted to one another. With that kind of tension, what's not to enjoy?

While there are some scenes that are on par with LaBrecque's talent for witty dialog and sensual situations, this story is not in the same league as Barely Mistaken and Daring in the Dark.

¡Me encantó!
Por más "enemigos" que fueses sus ganas de estar juntos siempre pudo más.

First, let me say this is how I show up at my desk every morning to write. Dahling, I couldn’t possibly write a word unless I was wearing 3-inch heels with a Martini at hand. NOT!!! But it’s so different, and face it, infinitely less scarey than the way I usually work, running shorts and t-shirt with a cup of tea nearby, that I had to put this picture up.

I’ve been an avid reader ever since I was g
