🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Picture perfect stars
The first time I met him, his sexy British accent almost talked me into giving him my number on the spot. The second time, he nearly charmed the panties off me with his wit. Then I learned he’s the key to success in my new job in Paris. The man who tempts me into fling-worthy dirty daydreams has turned out to be my personal translator, and his accent is the hottest thing I’ve ever heard.
My mantra is simple — Don’t mix business with pleasure. I do my best to resist him as he teaches me how to converse with my co-workers, navigate the metro and order the perfect bottle of wine at dinner. But I also figure out how to tell the charming and clever man what I most want to say — that I want him to take me back to his flat — tonight.
Except there’s a catch…
One more assignment before I take off on my big adventure…
And it involves the toughest work ever — resisting the fetching American woman I spend all my days with. But you know what they say about best intentions. Soon, we’re spending our nights tangled together, and I don’t want to let her go. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and before we know it I’ll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.
What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing…unless one of you is leaving.
When you read a Lauren Blakely book you always know that you are going to get a good story.
This one was no exception, I love her characters that she writes, especially her females as she makes them so likable.
I love the fact that Lauren released this book on audio first, it just shows how far audios have come :o)
This was a sweet love story between Joy and Griffin.
Joy starts a brand new job in a new country, she has moved to Paris and cannot wait, the only thing is she doesn’t know any French and has to rely on a translator to help her.
June has a passion for smells, and luckily bags herself her dream job working for a fragrance company.
June is a very likable character, she doesn’t come across as one of these blushing “oh my” women that you read about sometimes, nope she’s an independent woman and she can do it all on her own thank you very much!
Griffin is a Brit, working in Paris as a translator.
He is planning to leave in 1 month’s time and travel somewhere else, he doesn’t like to stay in one place for too long, he has a strong impulse to travel and explore the world (he has a Wanderlust).
He has nearly packed all of his bags ready for his big trip, he just has one more job to do, he is asked to help as a translator for a new person starting a job in a fragrance company.
Ms Blakely has managed to catch the beauty and essence of Paris, the sights and scents of the air were there when I closed my eyes and listened to Grace Grant and Richard Armitage telling me this wonderful romance story.
This is a slow burner guys, friends to lovers, the best kind, prepare to be swooned!
Many thanks to the Author and the “Lovely Listeners” for my copy.
Enjoy the Burn,
