Book Description :
When Tucker Branch, playboy heir to Branch Bolt and Screw, screws and bolts a week before their wedding, Mia Devine wants nothing more than to crawl under her newly monogrammed sheets and plan a funeral for her dignity. But her friends convince her that bitter tastes better when it’s drowned in Bordeaux, so Mia grits her teeth and packs her bags, determined to make the best of her luxurious Paris honeymoon—alone.
She never planned on meeting Lucas Fournier.
The easygoing bartender’s scruffy good looks and less-than-sympathetic ear annoy her at first, but when she takes him up on his offer to show her around the city, she discovers that the romance of Paris isn’t just a myth.
Nor is the simultaneous O.
The last thing Mia needs is another doomed love affair, but since she only has a week, she figures she might as well enjoy la vie en O with Lucas while she can. But each day—and night—with Lucas is better than the last, and suddenly her heart is telling her this is more than a rebound fling.
Is it just the seduction of Paris…or could this be the real thing?
Frenched was a wonderful, fun, sexy, getaway romance in Paris.
It’s about Mia, who was ditched by her fiancee a week before the wedding, and decide to take the supposedly honeymoon trip to Paris by herself. She met Lucas and the rest is history.
The story was perfect. It was sweet, funny, and worth mention twice : SEXY. The insta-love was quite believable and the ending was fit as it is, it gave the reader space to wonder their relationship. I wouldn’t say it was HEA, but it was HFN. Who knows when they face with everyday reality the LDR would sustain.
Things I loved about this book :
1. The List. It was hilarious.
2. Paris duh.
3. Mia and Lucas. They were so sweet and yes the honesty was refreshing.
4. The sexy time (but I must admit the BDSM scene threw me of. Why why why???? Not fit to the story, in fact so totally out of character of the supposedly sweet Lucas. No alpha vibe whatsoever and yet there was tie and spanking include. Really? I cut one star just for that. Should put it in hate list I guess)
5. No angst and drama. Thank you very much.
