Fraught with such delicious tension and emotion done in a way that Ms. Florand excels at...I adored it. I adored the romance, the descriptiveness, the sexual tension...pretty much everything. This author is a favorite and A Wish Upon Jasmine is another winner. - Fiction Vixen
I reveled in Jasmin and Damien's story, soaked up their romance, and read the final page with a satisfied smile. So beautiful! - The Reader's Den
Heart-wrenching and sweet. I've long since given up trying to hide my feelings for my favorite Florand heros (*ahem* Sylvain Marquis!), but Damien Rosier is seriously giving my heart a hard time. I adored him as a lover, as a cousin, as a grand-nephew, as a son, as a grandson and, most of all, despite his flaws. - Ivy Book Bindings
Heartbreakingly romantic... A Wish Upon Jasmine is a romance for the ages. - Romance Novel News
Sensual and meaningful. A Wish Upon Jasmine is as aromatic as all the perfume mentioned in the story. - The Bookwhore Diaries
Florand did a wonderful job portraying how much trust and willingness to risk pain is necessary to develop intimacy. - Immersed in Books
Such a delight! - Chachic's Book Nook
Evocative and touching. - Straight Shootin' Book Reviews
I love Laura Florand's books. Her use of setting and presence is better than almost any other writer out there...But I also read her because she can set a mood in a book that literally takes you away-makes you feel like you're THERE-and that's truly a gift. - It's About the Book

Six months ago, Jasmine was a well sought after perfumer who attempted to start her own company, fell in love with a man she met at a party not realizing who he truly was until the next morning, and was dealing with her father slowly dying, all at the same time. To say she didn’t handle Damien well is an understatement. Now she is in Grasse and suddenly finds him coming into her shop and challenging her to come up with his own personal sent, and if she can, she can keep the shop otherwise he will take her to court to get it back. Along the way, his anger with how things played out plays a pivotal role in how their relationship develops this time around. I think his anger was a bit extreme, especially once he finds out what she was dealing with at the time and how she saw him buying her company. I think he held onto that resentment a bit too long and let’s face it, they had one night together in New York and for both of them it was more than a one night stand, but neither communicated well and she really should have heard him out, so they were both in the wrong with how things were handled. I’m not sure his anger was truly justified. Not when he discovers everything about her and who she is as a person and how she handles tough situations, which is poorly.
With that said, I loved how much he loved her and I loved how she tried to tell him she loved him without actually saying the words. It was romantic, passionate, sweet, and overall a feel good romance story. I’m so happy they ended up together and they learned how to communicate with each other when words weren’t always easy for either of them. A beautiful story.
I didn’t care for the h at all. In the beginning her issues were semi understandable, but for the rest she was just too self centered. I don’t know if the author is an introvert herself, knows one or is just guessing, but as a major introvert myself only part of that rang true for me. The rest was more like a huge lack of self esteem. It almost felt more like an abusive history where she was taught to think she didn’t deserve happiness.
I mostly liked the H, but he allowed her to hurt him too much. He also expected her to know him, when she didn’t even know herself. Too much angst between the two. I just didn’t feel the love connection.
In spite of all that, the story was as well written as the last. I love the author’s descriptions of not only the locations but the way the characters felt. I debated a four star review, but decided to split the difference at 3.5.
Some lengthy bits of exposition & I found myself slipping past some of the fooling around bits, but enough reviewers seem to have found them quite engaging. Take my impatience with a grain of salt. :)
My favorite scenes of Florand's are the ones in which people actively talk to each other, rather than conversations interrupted by several pages of exposition. I do love that it takes a step into deepening the influence of the Rosiers in their town, and explores perfuming. There's something really lovely about the sensuality of these professions, and an artisan's attention to detail.
