    Lot's of banter and chemistry

    I just finished reading Laura Florand's newest book, Chase Me. (I had an advanced copy). Chase Me is loosely connected to her previous novel, All For You. The books' leads have a ton of chemistry and share lots of quick and cheeky dialogue. Violette is the executive chef of a two-star restaurant in Paris, and Chase claims to, "not be in the military". They are a fun couple to spend time with. The book does a great job of building up an authentic setting and exploring the leads' relationship. The book is set in the present day and the recent November attacks in Paris are referenced in the story.

    Sexy and action packed romance

    Chase Me is the second story in Laura Florand’s new standalone series Paris Nights and is a departure from the sensual and lush storytelling of her other series. The Chocolat et Amour and La Vie en Roses series evoke an old world charm in the descriptions of Paris and Provence and are among my favourite romances (which makes it no surprise that the author always makes my ‘best of’ lists). In contrast, this story has a sharper, more contemporary edge, with a storyline influenced by the tragic events in Paris last year. The author has stated that the terrorist attack on her beloved city influenced the way this story turned out, as she was midway through writing it when these events occurred. The result is a timely romance with a romantic suspense subplot, yet still containing the wit, humour and sensual romance that draw readers to her stories. Violette is a successful, avant-garde chef in the tough critical world of Parisian dining. She’s got her two Michelin stars after years of 18 hour days, slaving in male dominated misogynistic kitchens, and she’s finally feeling like she’s made it close to the top. When she encounters a late night intruder in her restaurant, ostensibly testing her security measures in advance of a possible upcoming American presidential visit, she’s suspicious, but can’t deny her attraction to him. Counter-terrorist agent Chase is fully capable of defending himself against Violette’s knives and sharp words, setting up an intense banter between them that eventually leads to a steamy night together. It’s clear that Chase is no personal threat to her safety – but when her establishment is shut down by a health scare the very next day, she knows full well who is to blame, and when Chase shows up again, she’s quick to vent her fury on him. But Chase doesn’t give up – the more he’s around Violette, the more he likes her, her spirit, her fire, and his guilt over what’s happening because of him is only tempered by his knowledge that something much more sinister is going on than he can admit to. Trying to protect Violette (and the rest of Paris) doesn’t stop him from wanting to spend time with her, and as the action heats up, so do their nights together. But will Chase be able to prevent another tragedy before it’s too late? This was a fast paced, funny, suspenseful, sexy romance all rolled into one tidy package. As mentioned above, it’s definitely a different style of story than the author’s other works which tend to be more dramatic and slower paced. From the start of this story, Chase and Violette spark off each other, the result being some fantastic dialogue that doesn’t let up for the whole book, even amidst some of the more action-packed scenes as Chase and his team try to track down a possible terror threat centered around Violette’s restaurant, and one he can’t share with her or risk jeopardizing their operation. His bland responses of ‘I’m just in private security’ with no forthcoming information infuriate her, but his military stance and reactions to things make it clear to Violette that there is obviously something deeper going on than just a possible presidential visit to her diner. Violette feels all sorts of emotions towards Chase, but the predominant one is delight in finding someone who is not afraid of her sharp tongue, who can hold his own in a snappy argument, and who clearly desires her any way he can get her. The result is some steamy love scenes between them as Chase charms the pants right off Violet, and she’s woman enough to admit that she quite likes it that way. It’s not all flowers and chocolates though, as some of Chase’s decisions and how they impact Violette make for some believable anger on her part (and some worthwhile groveling from Chase). I love seeing a strong female heroine who can stand up for herself and Violette definitely fits that description. The action really picks up in the second half and leads to an exciting finish. In the end, we get a lovely happy ever after romance with a wonderfully matched couple. 5 stars.

    Topical and Deligtful

    Laura Florand just gets better and better! She's an excellent writer, and her stories have sizzle and smarts. Chase and Violette are a terrific pair, each strong and stubborn, but able to be vulnerable wth each other. Sassy dialogue is a treat, too -- this couple rivals Dom and Jamie as my fave. A lovely homage to Paris in the wake of the 2015 terror attacks, too.

    The perfect match

    When a couple is made for each other, but their path still isn't easy...that's what you've got here. So good.
