Sometimes, lowering your expectations is a good thing. You might end up getting more than you thought you would.

He knew their bad start was getting even worse, and he loved it.

A few people warned me that The Chocolate Kiss didn't have the same magic as its predecessor, The Chocolate Thief, and this is true.

But that doesn't mean this book isn't magical in its own right. It's just a different kind of magic. Where book 1 was sparkles, rainbows, and unicorns, book 2 was more like a rabbi

It’s no secret by now that I’m in love with Laura Florand’s Amour et Chocolat series. The Chocolate Kiss was another lovely installment full delicious desserts, decadent chocolate, and a passionate romance!

Magalie Chaudron works at her aunt’s magical tea and treats shop, La Maison des Sorcieres, conjuring up chocolat chaud (or hot chocolate) to die for. Magalie loves her life, working for her aunts and living above the shop in her tiny but glorious Parisian apartment. (I want to live t

I sat up till 1 AM with The Chocolate Kiss, waiting for the moment when the magic of The Chocolate Thief would be re-captured, but to no avail. I fell asleep with my lights on, dreaming of witches and chocolates and pastries and Sylvain Marquis...not Philippe Lyonnais. Needless to say, that would make him rather upset, I imagine, but he had tough competition. As a companion novel to The Chocolate Thief, this installment of cute chick-lit romance is adorable and charming, but it failed to make me ...more
Uh, let's see if I remember what happened in this book since it has been 5 days since I last listened to this audio? lmaoo.

The Chocolate Kiss was okay. Nothing really happened for me but that's probably because I was listening to this book on one of my shittier days. Ugh, work is the worst sometimes. In this, you will meet Philippe and Magalie and they were kind of cute. They had some obvious chemistry and they are in the city of love (wait.. that is paris right?) looking for well.. love. I kind
I was a little nervous starting this. Florand had two five star books in a row, for me -- could she possibly pull off a hat trick? Yes. Yes she could.

Magalie, the daughter of a trans-continental marriage, spent her youth being shuttled between France and America. As an adult, she made the most secure, permanent home possible for herself in the whimsical, witch themed chocolate shop of her aunts, cooking chocolat chaud that she infuses with appropriate wishes for its drinkers.

Adorable, charming, whimsical. These are the words that first came to mind when I finished this book. I read it in one sitting and was completely immersed in the world. I felt like I was in Paris, in a tiny chocolate shop. That I could almost smell the hot chocolate and see the adorable chocolate window displays the author so meticulously and wonderfully details in this book. And the let’s not forget the sexy romance that develops between Philippe Lyonnais, world famous pastry chef and Magalie C ...more

Have it ever happened to you guys, start reading a book, immediately having issues with it, consider DNF it... and in the end finding yourself in love with it?
Well, that's what happened with me.
I found the beginning more than awkward _being currently reading the following volume, I have to say that that seems to be the rule with this series _, for me it was borderline idiotic: Magalie's reactions were a little over the top considering which century we are in... and I wasn't craz

This one was slightly better than Chocolate Thief, though frustration is, once again, the prevalent emotion throughout this novel.

Slightly fantastical, The Chocolate Kiss tells the story of Magalie and Phillipe Lyonnaise. Magalie finally found the stability her parents couldn’t give her; and in an island in the middle of Paris, her aunts and their seemingly enchanted tea shop is the place she can finally call home. Everything is threatened when Phillipe Lyonnaise moves in the neighbourhood, howe

These darling covers continue to delight me. I am such a sucker for a good silhouette, and the multicolored macarons on this one really do lend it just the right whimsical air. I could hardly wait for my copy of THE CHOCOLATE KISS to arrive once I'd finished The Chocolate Thief. It was just such a delightful surprise of a read, made that much sweeter by the knowledge that there were two more books in the series already out there just waiting for me. As feelin
Cinq etoiles 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 J'adore ce livre. Enemies-to-lovers, slow burn, multicultural, strong characters, french pastries, hot chocolate - I love everything about The Chocolate Kiss. This book just made me so happy while reading it. I smiled, I cried, I felt for both Philippe and Magalie in their journey to love. Secondary characters were fleshed out well. The descriptions were lavish, evocative, and as decadent as chocolate. I could picture the people and the scenes in my head as I read. It's sexy, ...more
A fun and cute romance novel set in Paris. That simply enchanted me!

Chocolate kiss follows the usual line of Romance Chick-lits, is packed with cliches and very predictable.
BUT who cares?! If it stars a tawny, blue eyed, tall, well built gorgeous french dude that creates this for her

Honestly he had me at french dude… but a man that makes macaroons? the best in Paris?
That alone should be sufficient to give 5stars…. ;)

It's a sweet and fast read. With many aspects that I really enjoyed. But its no

A hilarious and heartwarming book! Magalie and Philippe were lovable characters and I couldn’t stop myself from wishing that this was a true story. It’s just what I needed on these overwhelming days.

The Chocolate Kiss was a love story that felt so fresh in comparison to the typical romances that I've been reading. So many books these days just go for the sex to solve everything but The Chocolate Kiss was more about creating an ambiance using the romantic setting of Paris as it’s backdrop to it’s full advantage.

I adore stories that feature chefs and food anyway but the rivalry and blossoming romance between Magalie and Philippe is just mouthwateringly delicious.

This is my second time reading book written by Laura Florand. The previous one was, of course, the first book of this series: The Chocolate Thief. Well, I didn't really remember the name of main characters in the first book that I was confused when Magalie and her aunts mentioned their names a few times here, lol. I was like, who were these people they were fussed about?

The main story of this book is still about chocolate business and the romance itself was exactly like the first book.
YES! This romance was as equally sweet as chocolate and would never forget the vivid, imaginary scenes of "utter indulgence" in eating chocolate cake! I have to give it to the author for her imaginary talent in providing scenes that "are so real" you think you are "there" experiencing it! Very rarely I come across an author that has that ability to craft her writing in a way that is so authentic and will never get lost in her writing..its written with magical touch of scenery and i ...more

Well. Wasn't enthused on reading this book too much at first. After a few chapters in I was hooked. I've been to Paris and I do know where these shops were, didn't go to that area but I knew where it was. They reminded me of the shops I saw on Montmarte area. There is magic there, not just of the Witches kind. I'm not sure a native Parisian would see it this way, this almost had a feel of how tourists see Paris. The story is so good and rich not just in chocolate but in Magalie's evolution. I th ...more
It's even better on the reread. The French-accented narration significantly enhanced the experience. I really enjoyed the ”trip” to Paris, the food porn, the fantastic characters, and the awesome dialogue. Philippe’s sense of self is outstanding and Magalie’s individuality is remarkable. This is my favorite book of the series, by far. ...more

This is the second book in Ms. Florand’s Chocolat-series, and just as the first book, it features an American heroine and a French hero who is also a chocolatier. There’s more love of good food in this book, more of the love of Paris and more stereotypical (but that doesn’t mean it’s not true) prejudices against both Americans and French. And with the added voice of Ms. Florand it’s just as enticing as the first book was. What made this one stand out to me was the sweetness, the added sense of m ...more

OH MY GOD THIS WAS SO GREAT. Is it just me or did Laura Florand lock down the perfect recipe for romance? Paris! Handsome, confident, competent dudes who are really really into awesome, tridimensional ladies! Really hot sex! CHOCOLATE, SO MUCH CHOCOLATE.

Ugh, it made me so hungry (... in more than one way). I could just imagine eating the macarons every time Magalie almost did. And it feel reductive to say that the sex scenes were hot because they were so much more than just sex scenes, they wer

It's *such* a Racquel book. Philippe an Magalie are rivals in the beginning and Magalie pretty much hates Philippe and the way everything changes it was all just so magical.

I don't know. I didn't like this much. Not the writing, or the two main characters, or the relationship.

“She loved sinking into her bed on evenings like this, but apparently she shouldn't, because it worried her aunts, who thought she ought to be out dancing. It worried her a little bit, too, because what if they were right, and because sometimes a great loneliness welled up in her and threatened all the dams she built to hold it back. You couldn't cure loneliness by wallowing in it, up above the world, on an island removed from everything. She knew that. But she had such a hard time with all the cures. They seemed rough and brusque and brutal, as if they abused her skin with a pot scrubber . . . forcing herself into a mass of people, a stranger among strangers. . . . But it was much more tempting to curl up with a book under her thick white comforter.

Still, sometimes after she curled up, she regretted her lack of courage and felt bleakly lonely.

It was important to have a really good book.”
“It’s true that if
friends can never count on you being there the next time
they need you, the place they leave for you might be very
small. That’s self-defense. If you abandon people—even if it’s
not your fault—they will eventually get over you and find
someone else. Good for them. But you’re an adult now, and
you can build things as deep and as long-lasting as you want
to. I wish you wouldn’t underestimate your ability to make
people love you. - Aunt Aja”
