Book Review: His Loving Caress by Candace Shaw #AARomance

The Blurb
Hearts in harmony? 

Instead of falling apart when her childhood sweetheart chose his music career over marriage, Elle Lauren fled to Paris to study fashion design. Her stunning wedding gowns now give other brides the happily-ever-after she didn't have. Ignoring Braxton Chase's long-distance apologies has been easy. But meeting him once more stirs the deep longings and desires that a decade has not erased.

Braxton walked away from the pressure to marry at a young age, and he's regretted breaking Elle's heart ever since. From the moment he sees her again at his Atlanta jazz club, he knows he wants more than forgiveness—he wants a second chance at the body-and-soul connection that they once had. Can he convince her to trust the sweet, seductive melody of their lost love? 

My Review
I’m still smiling after closing the book yesterday. Such a sweet, romantic story. I’m never sure how I feel about exes getting together, after all they broke up for a reason. I had wanted to dislike Braxton for dumping Lauren at the altar, but I’d already learned to like him from the previous books in the series. Even if I hadn’t read the prior books, I’d still like him. He’s an ambitious, intelligent, musically talented man, but most of all he was remorseful over jilting Lauren all those years ago.

Lauren was a woman of power and class. Instead of pining over her lost love for the past ten years, she made a name for herself in the fashion world. As they say, the heart wants what the heart wants, and Lauren had always loved Braxton, even when he did her wrong by leaving her at the altar.

I liked that the couple had known each other all of their lives and were both genuinely good people. I’ve enjoyed every book in this series and am expecting more.

I give this book five out of five piano shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased this book from Amazon.
