I really loved this book, it`s the second book by Dorothy Koomson that I have red and I have found them both very enjoyable. This book had me from page one although I did find towards the end I was getting a bit sick of the chocolate references but I think it was because I was enjoying the story and I wanted to see what the out come with the four main characters would be, I was getting a bit impatient. I liked the humour the book had and found myself laughing out loud on many occasions while I w ...more

I like this author; she writes some excellent chick-lit type books, always with a black lead character. So far I have read The Chocolate Run, which was nice and light... a Thornton's Viennese Truffle of a book ;-)

Have now finished The Cupid Effect, which I enjoyed, particularly the Buffy and Angel references... a girl after my own heart!

I give the chocolate run a four star because I enjoyed reading it. I loved Amber and Greg's story and it was such a page turner. I am yet to read the cupid effect because I felt I needed something different and by another author. I will never hesitate to pick up a Dorothy Koomson book.

Hmmm have 2 of her books now, page turners with likeable characters but loads of similarities in the 2 stories, white English girl and black Brit besties, some cheats or try's to cheat with other one BF, queue fall out, then make up. Still enjoyed the and have the 3rd on hand to start if that one is also similar, I may give up on her books, which would be a shame as very well written easy to read beach type books but I guess why pay for the same book with diff cover eh? I shall update what I thi ...more

The plot reminds me of what reality is all about: a friendship torn apart by the drama and lust of love and relationships. It also reminds me of how much we value friendships to the point of being unable to choose between your significant other and your best friend. What we should know is a healthy balance of both, although more often than not, that's easier said than done. But if I had a friend like Amber Salpone does in the book, I'd be more than ready to dump her and drop the friendship becau ...more

This is the first time I read a book by Dorothy Koomson, and it's 2 story in 1. I have to say I enjoyed every bits of it. I think there was too much affections among the main characters in Chocolate Run then when The Cupid Effect came in, which lack of affection on the main character's love life, I got a lil disappointed. Nonetheless it was still a pleasant read and I'm glad of the happy ending. I'll be looking out for more reads from this author from hereon. ^^

It's one of those books I'll just pick up and read whenever I feel low or just need comforting. It's the most disheveled book on my shelf!! I get lost in Amber and Greg's world. If you're looking for a fairy tale story, this isn't for you. However, if you're looking for a book with some humor, a lovely main character and a test of love and friendship then buy it!! I honestly think it's a must for every bookshelf.

I enjoyed this book immensely. It was the first book I read by this author and I quickly found myself seeking out all of her books. Her characters are well written and relatable. Hands down one of the best novels I've read with a interracial couple. I only wish other interracial writers' novel were as good as this.

I was so looking forward to reading this as I love the author and a few friends had told me I'll love it. I was a bit disappointed :-(. Usually I fall in love with the characters in Dorothy's books but I guess I just didn't really likeAmber and Greg that much. Having said that it is a page turner and I wouldn't want to put anyone off reading it.

I dont like the main characters too much. I feel like there were too much drama within one story. I do however enjoy the way it was written and reading the detailed description of chocolate references.

I was quite put off by the first book that I didnt end up reading the 2nd book because I suspect the story would be as typical chick lit as the first story.
Jan 24, 2015 lebo rated it it was amazing
in short ,its a good book.

I loved how she described the characters (like actual people you`ve bumped into at some point in life)

its predictable in an unpredictable way .

ag this was a good book

Hmm.... nothing much in terms of interest, kind of predictable and maybe even a little too melodramatic for my liking. But if heart fluttering romances with 'happily ever after' is the icing on your cake, then it fits.

Indeed, it's a funny book but not a great one.
I loved Amber's chocolate definitions! And I think it's obvious that there is always a special one in a Casanova's life! :)

Running away is really not solving the problem but will make you suffer with the unsolved problem.

2 heartwarming stories but personally I prefer Dorothy Koomson's other stories such as The Rose Petal Beach which are more gritty n gripping :)

Hello, my name's Dorothy Koomson and I'll try to make this bit that's all about me as interesting as possible.
I wrote my first novel called There's A Thin Line Between Love And Hate when I was 13. I used to write a chapter every night then pass it around to my fellow convent school pupils every morning, and they seemed to love it.

I grew up in London and then grew up again in Leeds when I went to u
