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
