I had the privilege to be a beta reader for this book, and I waited for weeks with baited breath to read this novel. By the time I finally got the book, I was so worried that I had built it up so much in my head that I would be disappointed once I finally read the finished product. I WAS WRONG. Even with the highest expectations, I was completely blown away by this book.

Winter and Cade are an amazing couple! Both characters are extremely well developed and well rounded. By the end of the book, I

~* I received a copy of When the Heart Falls from the authors in exchange for an honest review. I have not been and never will be compensated for my review of this book. This review is my honest opinion and is in no way influenced by the authors' generosity. *~

While reading this book I felt instantly transported to another time and place like I was in my own little world and nothing else existed or mattered. It's a hard book to put down (but I had to stop for a few times for breaks a girl's got to eat right...LOL) It captures you so completely!

I had the opportunity to beta read this book and was worried at first about getting it read on time, but once I started reading, I couldn't pull myself away. This is NOT what you think about when you think about a Romance Novel. As someone who is not usually a fan of anything called a romance novel, I was taken in by how much this book did not feel like it was just all about romance. This book was 100% real and no parts of it felt cheesy or fake at all. There were so many real life issues inters ...more

Le Sigh.

That pretty much sums up how I feel about this book every time I think of it.

Le Sigh. It was a fantastic read from beginning to end! It's one of those reads that latches on to you and refuses to let go, and no matter how many times you say "just on more page", you keep going until there are no more pages to turn.

Le Sigh. It had such amazing, endearing characters.

Le Sigh. It was filled with beautiful romance, steamy passion, bellyaching humor, and heart breaking pain and anguish.

I had the pleasure of being a BETA reader for Kimberly Kinrade's and Dmytry Karpov's "Kiss Me in Paris." I am so lucky I got to review this amazing book! From start to finish I couldn't help but laugh, cry, cheer, etc throughout the whole novel. Kinrade has a way with words, and especially with stories. She is able to captivate readers right from the start and keep them guessing the whole way through. I love her writing and with "Kiss Me in Paris" it just shows the kind of writing she has in her ...more

I had heard great things about this book and when it went on sale I couldn't not justify not purchasing the book. It did NOT disappoint. The characters are great, the love story is sweet. Downloaded it to my Nook in the evening and finished it in hours as I couldn't put it down! If you haven't read it, go download it and read it, I doubt you will be disappointed.

Cade Savage comes from one of the most influential families in Texas. As heir to his family’s ranch Cade has responsibilities and expectations to his family to stay and run the Ranch as his father has done before him. But Cade has aspirations to become an architect not a rancher and when the opportunity presents itself for him to go to Paris to study architecture he can’t imagine not going. Cade’s family is anything but the happy family they like everyone to thin

She decides to take a summer program in France because what better way to learn about love than in Paris. We also follow a young man named Cade.

Le sigh. If I had to read that one more time in this book I would have screamed. I know When the Heart Falls is based in Paris, but does the main character have to say Le sigh all the freakin time? It just annoyed me.

Winter wants to write romance novels, but she has never been in love. Her advisor tells her she needs to write about things she knows, things she has experienced. I think the author of this book should do the same. She obviously did not do her research on Paris or France and include

This review was originally posted on my blog, Ramblings of a Daydreamer. You can find it, and many more reviews at the blog.

Kiss Me in Paris is a beautiful love story about Winter and Cade, two people with haunted pasts and secrets. It was incredibly romantic, but it was also laugh-out-loud funny, which was something I wasn’t expecting, but enjoyed immensely.

Winter and Cade had so much in common: they were both passionate people with big goals, and they were both trying to run away from their p

Winter Deveaux looks forward to what the summer has to bring, as well as spending time in Paris. In her mind, doing so will allow her to let go of the ghosts of her past. Immersing herself in the ambience spreading out before her, she's ready to embrace everything Paris has to offer.

Unfortunately, that's easier said than done when her past turns up unexpectedly. Winter realizes it's something she'll never be able to run away from. No matter where she goes, Ryan is determined to follow. Despite t

First of all, this book is now part of my "Favorites Shelf", a very unforgettable book that takes you to Paris - beautifully written, magical.

What I enjoyed most about this book is the tour of the city and the lines that were exchanged throughout this book.

HOLY COW! What an amazing read! Words cannot describe how much I loved this book! I guess for me, I really connected with Winter. And then there's Cade...the man had me at hello.

Kiss Me In Paris has so many emotions flowing through it. Emotions that I will not tell you about because it would spoil the whole book for you...and we don't like spoilers. If you are wanting a good romance novel, look no further. Kiss Me In Paris is definitely one you will want to pick up. I would grab a box of tissues

Kiss Me in Paris by Kimberly Kinrade & Dmytry Karpov.
My new favourite book!
Reading the book felt like walking along the streets of Paris, how it felt to witness the sunset standing from the Eiffel Tower overlooking Champ de Mars, how the touch of the sea breeze felt while enjoying nature in Falaise d'Etretat, understanding the beauty of The Gates of Hell and acquiring deep inspirational appreciation towards The Thinker and The Kiss exhibited in Musee Rodin, which I dream to see someday.

She had me at Paris. The wonderful, magical city of Paris; it felt almost like a character in this heart warming, at times heart breaking, story by Kimberly Kinrade. As a destination that I long to visit, the vivid imagery swirling around the main characters took me to the very place that I want to see.
I fell in love with the characters of Cade Savage and Winter Deveaux as they fall in love with each other. The characters were so well developed, completely identifiable and real. Wealth and bea

Winter wants to be a romance writer but doesn't know enough about romance because she isn't interested in being in a relationship. Winter's nickname is the Ice Queen. Cade is a millionaire cowboy who wants to be an architect. Then they meet in the airport on the way to Paris, where they are attending the same school. There are a couple of really awful side stories that made me just shake my head because such terrible things had happened to the characters. They have serious emotional journeys thr ...more

Book One in the Kiss me series by Kimberly and Dmytry Kinrade.

This story is full of love, hate, adventure and redemption. Cade and Winter go through a rainbow of emotions. The book was well written and thought out.

If you're looking for a story about young love and foreign travels, this is definitely the book for you!

When I first picked this book up, I didn't expect to love it as much as I did. I was given the option to read it in exchange for a review much like many of the books I read between 2012 and 2014. If I loved them, I bought them. I've bought this book more than once because I love it so, so much.

This was such a great read. It had everything I love In a book. It had a bit of mystery, adventure, thrill, suspense, and of course steamy romance. And to top it off it had me laughing my butt of in some parts.

There were two reasons I was really excited to read this book. The cover is absolutely beautiful and intriguing. Second I have always been fascinated with Paris and have been dying to go since I was a young girl. At first glance judging by the cover I thought I was getting a book that was dark, gritty and raw. I was surprised to find that it was just a simple story about two people finding love when they least expected it.

Two students decide to join a french class that travels to France for the duration of summer. Not only are they bringing their hopes and dreams, but their secrets as well. When they end up falling in love, they are at a crossroads about how to deal with their problems and their new found love.

Kiss Me In Paris is a heartfelt exploration of entwined fates. Winter and Cade are from diverse backgrounds but both are trying to follow their dreams. Each pursuit leads them to Paris and throws them together into an unforgettable twist of events. This story will pull you in from the get

Wounded hearts, tragic events and family drama. This book has that plus so much more.

Paris the city of love.. In this story it does not start out like that, not at all.

This is a very intense book that has some heavy issues. It is for adults over 18.

This is a story of two college aged students with many secrets. These secrets have a lot of abuse. Cade comes from a broken family with more than one issue! Winter has a loving family but she has a horrible secret she has kept for years.

They both leave home to go to Paris for the summer for a study abroad. For Winter, French is already a second language but Cade is struggling. Winter goes there to learn more about l
