Jennifer Greene: Blame It on Chocolate

PDF EBOOK Blame It on Chocolate – chernov–


This book was so fun to read It wasn t smutty and I cared about the characters I might ven look for other books by this author Sometimes you just need to read a fun book right I m so tired of thinking deep thoughts all the time It s been a while since I ve read this but I remember it being adorable funny and an The Magic Rolling Pin easy andnjoyable read The story is so interesting and original the characters sincere and likable I loved the greenhouse scene I loved t I was totally surprised by this book I really thought it was gonna be a cliche one night stand results in pregnancy book but really all of that was dealt with in the beginning of the book leaving the rest of the book for a very sweet story I love that there was no huge misunderstanding a slight one though and I really loved the main characters I was in the mood for a light fun contemporary romance and this fit the bill perfectly This was a cute story though I ve read similar romances Boy Girl have one night stand Girl gets pregnant Boy and Girl Indecent... Exposure (Indecent, eventually fall in love This is one type of romance I just don t get I don t think this sort of situation happens very often in real life which is why this is fictionThe above being said the characters arenjoyable and the story moves along nicely I will read books by this authorI read Woman Most Likely To by Jennifer Greene a few years ago and connected with that story It took place in Michigan which is where I m from and had 3 women main characters a young college student her mother a woman in her 40s and her mother a woman in her 60s or 70s all finding romance in the area of Traverse City This is a hard book to review I liked the characters and it was seamlessly written and overall a fun book There was lots of interesting information about chocolate too and a believable scientific discovery underpinning some of the plotBut the romance was for me boring and unbelievable I think my problems with the book hinge on the fact that Lucy the heroine was so very childlike Physically small and in major denial about a ton of stuff and immature not in a selfish annoying way but in an isn t that so sweet way I absolutely did not believe the physical attraction between the main characters And I didn t believe in the Not Without a Fight end that Nick was really in love with Lucy He got her pregnant andverything about him and his family and his sense of honor and what he said and what he did indicated that he felt utterly responsible for her and for taking care of her for the rest of her life Nothing he did said to me that he loved her instead it was clear that he wanted to take care of this darling intense waifish pregnant girl and that meant that he needed to believe that he loved Lucy Fitzhenry didn't just wake up one morning and decide to do something stupidBut when an xperimental strain of chocolate that she'd developed needed testing someone had to do it Who knew that overindulging in her creation would turn an introverted plant lov.

Ves her and Lucy is just na ve nough to think that what they have isn t strong The Unseen Wonder enough to keep them together All in all BLAME IT ON CHOCOLATE is a sweet indulgence for a satisfying afternoon read Great characters a great storyI have read many books by Jennifer Greenenjoyed them all but Nick is my favorite I love how capable yet vulnerable he is Great characters a great story This book started well It had potential However the will theywon t they got old very uickly The misunderstanding and miscommunication between the two main characters hit ridiculous levels and several subplots were just dropped rather than fleshed out There were some good character setups and good conflicts here and then the threads were just lost much to my disappointment The book would have been better served by having the two main characters get together sooner and then work through the other issues with other side characters The rather than the miraculous happily The Management Bible ever after that affected not only the main couple but also the others in their orbit I know these chick lit romances are fluff and I read them for that reason Sometimes I need a brain break But this was so fluffy and light that it floated away I picked this book up because as a serious chocoholic and chocolate snob the title appealed to me What unfolded was a story that came closer to being truly about love than just about any romance I ve read So often the romance genre seems to confuse love and lust often to a criminal degree They forget that at its heart love is a verb It takes hard work People don t just float in a state of love they have to actively love the other person That sxactly what happened in this novel Oh there s physical attraction I mean it begins with a pregnancy thanks to one crazy night of passion The night of the chocolate But ultimately what brought these two together despite their surface differences was that they Zu schnell each wanted to make the other happy than anythinglse in the world The only real problem with this book is that I am now seriously craving chocolate This one had so much wasted potential when it came to the romance but sadly it never really took off and we didn t get to see the hH on page as a couple at all Heroine works for the hero s family s company and although I didn t doubt the feelings these two had for Sleepless (Bird of Stone, each other I really wish we had seen them as a couple instead what we get is learning heroine is preggers after a crazyncounter weeks ago and the hero trying to do the right thing smoothing things over for the heroine at work at home Then of course realising he is crazy for her but doing nothing for it JG heroes normally chase their heroines sadly not in this one. T her pregnant with her boss's baby Though she and Nick butted heads at work if their one night together was any indication they were a great match in bed With a little luck and chocolate maybe they could turn their one night stand into the chance of a lifetime.

ErAnd on the other side I never really got why Lucy loved or said she loved Nick She thought he was hot jumped him and then he started taking care of her after she got pregnant buying her stuff nsuring she got a promotion and a raise hiring people to help her deal with her immature and selfish family so she decided she ought to fall in love with the father of her babyI get wanting to be taken care of specially during a pregnancy But that s not what I m looking for in a romance novel Any book with the word chocolate in the title is bound to grab my attention Thankfully Ms Greene s BLAME IT ON CHOCOLATE lived up to my sweet tooth cravings This is a story that s actually nice in the true definition of nice in that there are no bad guys no cheating no broken hearts and a happy nding The characters are truly believable the dialogue is funny and the situations this couple find themselves in are ones anyone can relate to Lucy Fitzhenry loves her job at Bernard Chocolates She gets to spend her days working in the greenhouse developing new species of plants for the company s newest brands of chocolate She knows she s found a real winner with Bliss and agerly awaits the reaction of the bosses owner Orson Bernard and his grandson Raul Nicholas Nick Bernard Lucy was right her new plant has a direct Invisible (The Curse of Avalon effect on the future of Bernard Chocolates in that it couldnd up making them millions When the first batch of Bliss chocolate comes off the line Lucy decides to give it a taste test Who knew chocolate could taste so heavenly or that it would turn this shy woman who only fantasized about Nick Bernard in private into a sex starved woman who lets a kiss lead to the Night of the Chocolate Suddenly one wild night of passion turns into a whole lot when the nausea Lucy starts Yummy Supper experiencing turns out not to be an ulcer but a pregnancy Nick Bernard has always done the right thing So when he learns that Lucy is pregnant with his child he s determined that they ll get married Unfortunately the uiet shy Lucy has a whole lot to say about marrying the boss s grandson and none of it seems to be good Somehow Nick has to convince Lucy that he cares for her that he is in fact falling in love with her and wants to marry her for than just the sake of their child Bliss chocolate is a huge success and Nick wants nothing than to make his relationship with Lucy a success too BLAME IT ON CHOCOLATE is in a word charming A down toarth romance with likable characters who find themselves in a situation that many people deal with in the real world Lucy and Nick are a couple that veryone can relate to Nick tries so hard to be nice that he doesn t realize that Lucy needs to know he lo.
