What they say: 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?

What I say: Gotta love a girl who lists! Mia loves to be organised and has spent the last year meticulously planning her dream wedding, only to be dumped a week before the big event. Mia's friends convince her to go on the prepaid honeymoon to Paris, to her get away from it all. The problem? Paris is the city of love!

After a disastrous arrival in Paris, Mia is all set to return home until she meets bartender Lucas. Lucas convinces Mia to let him show her the real Paris. If a hot half-french bartender like Lucas ever wants to show me around Paris then I'm totally fine with it! I loved their banter and how he called her out whenever she'd get too bossy or demanding.

I really liked Mia because she never failed to make me laugh. I loved her lists (some more than others) and I appreciated how the time away from home with Lucas allowed her to see just how wrong things had been.

Lucas is a nice guy who goes out of his way to help Mia. He recognises the instant chemistry and pushes Mia to become more accepting of herself and others. Most importantly he helps her to stop trying to control and organise everything, to be spontaneous.

I really liked Frenched and am looking forward to reading the follow up.

4 Stars in my Sky!
