A Sexy Adult Contemporary Romance
Mia Devine plans over-the-top weddings for a living. So when it comes to her own nuptials, she spares no expense—hand engraved invitations, Vera Wang gown, luxury honeymoon in France. And since her fiancé is Tucker Branch, playboy heir and notorious flirt, local media is obsessed with every little detail.
Which is why it really sucks when he jilts her a week before the wedding.
Mortified, Mia wants nothing more than to crawl under her newly monogrammed sheets and plan a funeral for her dignity, right after blabbing to the world how fitting it is that Tucker will inherit a bolt and screw company, because that’s all he wants to do—screw, and bolt. And he doesn’t do either with much finesse.
When her friends convince her that bitter tastes better when it’s drowned in Bordeaux, she grits her teeth and packs her bags, determined to make the best of a week in Paris alone.
She never planned on meeting Lucas Fournier.
The free-spirited musician’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 him 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?
This was such a great and fun book. There was everything I love in a book minus the angst.
The book opens up with Mia being dumped one week before the wedding of the year. She is hiding in her room wishing it was all a bad joke. She starts cutting the monogram out of the pillow cases!
“FML. That’s what I need to monogram on all this shit.”
Mia is a very list driven woman to put it mildly and plans out everything including having an outfit itinerary! Her friends convince her to go to Paris on her honeymoon alone. Reluctantly, she went. After an awful first day watching lovers kiss and swoon all over each other, she goes into a bar and meets Lucas.
Lucas is a French American in Paris visiting his family. He is not Mia’s type at all but she is drawn to him. Lucas agrees to be her tour guide in the city for one day.
The fun friendship and then relationship these to form is addicting. I laughed, I cried a little (I seem to do this a lot in books lately) and I just loved their chemistry. Melanie Harlow knows how to write a hot sex scene and thank goodness she has a lot in this book.
“Listen, I don’t know what kind of assholes you’ve been with before, but I promise you, your orgasm will not one make an appearance tonight, it will be the star of the show.” - Lucas
“No one had ever, ever made me feel this beautiful, this cherished, this out of my mind with desire.”- Mia
I was a tad disappointed that we didn’t get an epilogue and the story just ended but I am really hoping we get to see Mia and Lucas again. Let the stalking begin looking for updates on more projects from this author.
If you are looking for a fun, hot and sexy fast read I highly recommend French by Melanie Harlow.
Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her lipstick red, and her history with the naughty bits left in. I write New Adult historical and contemporary stories.
