After botching her first assignment as a feature writer, she’s more than willing to put in a hard day’s work this Valentine’s Day; even if it means going on a date with gorgeous construction Tycoon, Lord McKenzie, and opening herself to an onslaught of all th ...more

Full Review:

When I first noticed the book I totally sighed because I’ve seen this plot a hundred times. I took a chance though for the simple fact that it takes place in Africa and that really intrigued me. However, while I really did enjoy the book there is a lot of typical plot. Sadly, it did lack originality until you get to the characters. Don’t get me wrong you have the typical egotistical, handsome, leading man and well Chantelle is every bit the typ

I read the initial version of this book when it first came out years ago. I’m happy to say that it was as interesting to read the second time, this time with a few additions. I loved the touches of Ghana that Ms. Baryeh added to the story to give it an authentic feel. My favorite aspect of the book was the scorching heat between Lord and Chantelle.

Just like when I read the book the first time, Lord is still one of my favorite book boyfriends, too bad I have to give him up to Chantelle because t

Lovely sweet love story with a satisfying ending. My only peeve is that the location of the story is ambiguous. I wanted to see more of the Ghanaian culture to make the story richer. The writer didn't show this in detail. In fact, I was surprised when I eventually discovered the story was set in Africa. Would have been 5 starts is a little of the African culture was demonstrated ...more

Most Eligible Bachelor is one of the most enjoyable books I have read in a while. Set in Ghana, the story of Chantelle and Lord is most engaging; from their first encounter in the nightclub and throughout their various interactions in the book. The love scene (in the same nightclub and YES at their first encounter, lol) was hot enough for the storyline and the chemistry between the two characters flowed wonderfully throughout the novel. Empi's style of writing is unfussy and she captures your at ...more
While I really did enjoy the book there is a lot of typical plot. Sadly, it did lack originality until you get to the characters. I really wish the author had taken a little more time on the details. The plot could have been slowed down and a lot more been put into the fact that this book is placed in Africa and not just any Africa but a thriving Africa. We so rarely see this that it would have added flavor to the book to have expanded on it. All together though this was an enjoyable chocolate r ...more

This was a beautiful story. I loved how Lord has always gotten the woman he wanted until the only woman he wanted didn't want him. Chantelle had been hurt badly by her ex. She was deceived in the worst way. And when it seems Lord deceives her as well, she runs. I loved this story and how it took both of them to work through everything. ...more

Good Book

I really enjoyed reading this book about Lord and Chantelle love journey. Lord called Chantelle out when he told her that she was one of those women who had been hurt before and was afraid to love again for fear of having her heart broken again. Chantelle's ex-fiance Martin died while cheating on her and the pain from the betrayal caused her to miscarry. I like how Lord actually dated Chantelle without sleeping with her again to show her that she was different from the women that he da

DNF at 54%

Note: I won an e-copy of this book from the author. Honest thoughts follow.

Starts out nicely enough but goes into a kind of coma soon after. Sure, the interview setup isn't a favorite, but there've been times it works for me. Rarely, but still. So, really, I wouldn't have minded continuing, but the hero is impossible for me to read any further. At the very least, this would definitely end up a 1-star read for me even if he gets redeemed at the end, and I'd rather just move on now.

I trully enjoyed reading this book. Empi really brought the romance jump off the page. Though I thought their lovemaking came fast too fast for my liking, they barely met for business, it all worked out in the end. Chantelle is a very hard to get woman that comes across Lord who media portrayed as a playboy and who didn't do a damn thing to stop those picutres in the tabloids and gossip. He just let everyone have a field day guessing who is his next lady of the day. While he planned to get to Cn ...more
