The Chocolatier by Brenda Scruggs is a complex yet sweet romance that centers on a man and a woman from very different worlds, yet they are perfect for each other. Charles Riviera is the heir to a chocolate empire that thrives on the dark, rich, sweet intensity of chocolate. He loves his job, he loves chocolate, and he really enjoys working as Director of Marketing. However, he had no idea that life had an even sweeter surprise waiting for him in the form of a delectable woman who is hiding deep pain.
Charlene Callaway has seen the worst that love, and romance have to offer. Ready to marry the man she loved, she found him cheating on her with another woman on their wedding day. Broken hearted and bone weary, she moves away and gets a job at a chocolate company. She had no idea that her future was waiting for her in the form of a dashing, handsome and very interesting man. But bad luck still has an eye on her. She has a stalker and he will not stop until he has her. What can Charlene and Charles do in a situation like this? They are hardly ready to accept their feelings for each other, so what will they do when they have to confront an adversary that is hell-bent on claiming Charlene?
Brenda Scruggs did a wonderful job of creating characters that were real and relatable. The element of surprise, romance, and suspense was great and very well built. The scenarios were real, complex and believable. I loved the sweet love between Charlene and Charles, nothing was forced, and Scruggs gave them time and the opportunity to fully explore their feelings for each other before they gave love a chance. The Chocolatier is a complete novel that gives you a sense of fulfillment and leaves you smiling.

More than just a romance, October 25, 2016
This review is from: The Chocolatier (Kindle Edition)
The story flowed well and was alive with danger and emotion. I liked that Charles and Charlene were struggling with each other until it became apparent that Charles had more feelings for her than he had imagined. The intensity of the stalker and the harrowing actions were well written.
I enjoyed the thriller aspect of the story as much as the romance. It is a complex story that takes you into a deep place and shows that love can happen when you least expect it.
