This was a very good read. The story had humor and an engaging pair of lead characters who worked out their issues in a logical and caring fashion while growing closer to each other. This was a story about the mistakes people make in their lives and how taking the hard road to fix these mistakes can sometimes lead to something so much better. It's also about what it takes to create a lasting partnership and how no relationship can survive without forgiveness. Wow! All that and humor too!

Ugh; I'm so incredibly disgusted by this and terribly bewildered by all the positive reviews. I started reading this, but then when I got 50 pages into it and the main characters were having sex the day they met I realized it just isn't my type of novel. So much for the main character being engaged; if a person's willing to cheat WITH you, they're not going to have problems cheating ON you either. Definitely not "true love" or "romantic" to me; a completely unhealthy, unsatisfying and unromantic ...more

Engaged woman goes off by herself to Paris to secretly look for info on her dead birth father. She gets mugged, and pretty much moves in with her rescuer. I thoroughly disliked the heroine, and the "romance" in this story was pretty much a by-the-numbers damsel in distress. Having her attempt to rescue the hero in return (view spoiler) did not make her a strong, capable woman. It just made her more unlikable. The hero? He was just t ...more

It was mediocre. I knew who the bitch was going to end up with. Why am I not surprised? So predictable! I can't leave myself hanging in the middle of the book after starting it. It's going to bug the shit out of me even after knowing what's going to happen. I'm going to read another mediocre romance novel because I'm turning into this huge middle-aged fat guy sitting on a couch reading romance novels at Barnes and Nobles, while sipping on strawberry cream from Starbucks.

This was entertaining. I picked it up at a library sale for 50 cents because, well, it takes place in Paris and I love that city. However, there isn't a whole lot of Paris in the book - it's mostly a story about two strangers from South Bend, Indiana, that happen to meet in Paris. The only thing that bothered me was the dialogue because it wasn't all that believable. Example: the knight in shining armor calls his lover "Cookie" (repeatedly) and it's supposed to be hot. Apologies if this is commo ...more

Totally cliché. I didn't feel any chemistry between the couple. It was an alright book to occupy me between series. It was blah. Maybe I just don't like her writing style. Oh well. Off to the next adventure.

Mugged of her purse while in Paris, the heroine is left with no money, no passport, and no hotel key. So she emailed all her friends to wire money to an address in London while manning the computer from Nigeria--OH WAIT, no, actually a hunky American JUST HAPPENED to be on the scene and whisk her away for a mad romantic sex tour of Paris that would have been even more awesome had she not been engaged to someone else at the time . Turns out the hero and heroine have more in common than nookie in ...more

I enjoyed this book. I didn't care for the main character due to her indecision and unfaithfulness, but I did enjoy the plot and the humor that came along with it.

This was really a well written romance. Girl escapes to Paris because she needs some breathing room, she falls in love even though she has a fiance in the states. Oops. It just gets better with every page. I really like the way the Paris boyfriend treats the states boyfriend (will not tell any spoilers - you need to read the book). This rates high on my romance novel status. Really like Greene's writing style.

I've been to both Paris and South Bend. Couldnt' believe how real she did the locations. But I loved it. The heroine's flawed, making a deep moral mistake with the guy in Paris--and she knows it. Feels the guilt. But she also gets it, that this is a sign her fiance was way wrong for her. Not like she recovers from this easily...or believes in her new love easily. Real, honest, compelling. About the strength of love.

Recommends it for: chick lit, beach\vacation
The perfect vacation/beach read. It's your typical chick lit, predictable storyline, but engrossing none the less.

I found it a little cheesy at first, but quickly became totally enchanted by the characters. After I finished the book, I found myself missing them, like I suddenly was no longer in contact with my best friends (well, maybe not my BEST friends.. but friends that I'd known for some time).
Jul 31, 2012 Heidi rated it it was ok
There is something to be said for a little mystery in a relationship, within page 30 the two main characters are googly eyed and cant keep their hands off each other. the main character has everything stolen from her and she doesn't seem to mind as long as she can gaze longlingly into the the 'just so happens to be a millionaire's son's eyes... BAH humbug It's all just too much for me.

Boring. Very disappointing after "Blame it on Chocolate." I just couldn't get into the characters or their problems. I've also never really liked stories in which an engaged woman suddenly realizes she's been with the wrong man all along because some new man really makes her feel this incredible passion...those emotions feel good in the short run, but don't sustain a relationship.
Mar 26, 2013 Jessorella rated it liked it
Hero and heroine fall in love a tad too quickly for my liking, and there's very little tension between them. Also, I found the closing chapters (where they each accept/solve their familial issues) a little stodgy to get through. That being said, there's some lovely description in this book - scenes are very well set and easy to visualize. And it did make me want to go back to Paris.

This book annoyed me to the point that I couldn't finish it.
I didn't want to continue reading about Will who was meant to be this great guy and hero of the book but who kept getting annoyed (even if he didn't show it) at his love interest (forgot her name) for talking too much. Urgh. The author really laboured the point that Will was annoyed with her talkative nature.

Will and Kelly fall in love in Paris. Kelly is mugged and Will comes to her rescue.

It turns out that both are origninally from South Bend; Will has been living in Paris trying to get away from his controlling family. Kelly is in Paris looking for information on her father.

Will their relationship last? What will happen with their respective families?

I keep coming back to this book when I want a quick cheery pick-me-up. The fast pace, the banter, the fun the characters have make for an over-all feel good read. I can't decide which Jennifer Greene is my favorite, this one or Blame It On Chocolate.

Interesting turn of events but you could tell from the beginning who would end up together in the end... I just thought there could be a better ending. Or a sequel would be great! I hate books that end like boom... Guess I like the happily ever after.
Mar 31, 2013 Celine rated it liked it
Cute little book that I loaned from the library because it was digital and because Paris was in the title. Not a lot about Paris. Turned out just to be a breezy romance book but it was cute and a quick get-away-from-it-all read.

So far so good, I think everything has happened so fast between the two of the main characters as a couple and i am curious to see what excitement the next half of the book will hold, as so much has happened in the first half.
Aug 29, 2008 Beth rated it liked it
It's an odd book, but good. Romance, strong characters, a little short on plot, maybe, but it was an easy, pleasant read in the brain candy kind of way. I certainly wouldn't object to reading more by this author.

I am a little torn on this book. A part of me liked it and a part of me thought the way it is written was really hokey and cheesy. Not a bad book just not one of my favorites.
