5 Words: Heaven, passion, love, blackmail, culture.

The best thing about the International School series is this weird mesh of different cultures. It's a situation you don't come across often, even in books. And all of the misunderstandings and miscommunication and the sharing and learning and love... Man, it's perfect.

Which would explain the mass of pink highlights throughout my copy.

I adored Max's infatuation with Fleur. If I tell you about it, it will just sound creepy, so I deleted that whole

I really enjoyed the first 2 books of this series but unfortunately I don’t find this last installment of the series as good as the previous books.

Why do I dislike this book?

1. The main characters

The heroine in this book –Fleur is my least favorite in this series.
She is so fucked up! I don’t like her attitude and behavior. She’s the kind of girl like you see in Mean Girls movie. She’s all about outward appearance, selfish, mean and a total bitch! She only cares about parties and fashio

A satisfying conclusion to an amazing series...

Having read and enjoyed all three of the books in the International School series, my favorite book out of the three will have to be French Kissed. I enjoyed reading the book from Fleur's P.O.V, and to see how she got her happy ending. In I See London (Book 1) and London Falling (Book 2), we are introduced to Fleur, but we never get to see what happens in her life, she is after all one of the

Have you ever read a story that had you so captivated, you re-read it right after completing it the first time? For me, that story was I See London and my introduction to the intensity that is Maggie & Samir. Not only are they the hottest couple in the literary planet, but they're each well-drawn, unique characters that could hold my interest even if they weren't together. Combined, they are a big fireball of heat. 5 stars!

The International School series is my guilty pleasure. I wanted Cleeton to write Fleur’s story SO badly. Fleur was actually one of my favorite characters in this series. She’s portrayed as shallow and vain but underneath her “Ice Queen” exterior I knew there was so much more.

I was nervous that this story wouldn’t live up to my

*I received this title in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my thoughts and opinions*

Let me start off by saying that this book was not for me.

Firstly, I hated the characters. They were frustrating, and their downright ridiculous sexual tension/lust from page one, prevented anything other than sexual tension/lust from happening. I actually wanted something to happen, thank you. (Reading about hot, muscular backs is just not as mind-blowing as I thought it would be.)

Original Review @ Nomi’s Paranormal Palace

I loved the first two books in the International School series, and when I finished London Falling, I remember tweeting Chanel Cleeton and asking her whether Fleur was getting a book. I could see the connection between her and Max and I wanted to see it develop further. I am so glad it was a yes!!

Fleur appears to be all tough and bitchy, but as I learnt more about her throughout the series, she had secrets and tried to hide behind the walls that

My favorite of the International School series! Max and Fleur had such great chemistry. I'm a sucker for a good enemies to lovers book, and this one fit the bill. Max is sweet, down to earth and really balances out Fleur. Such a good story with a sizzling romance. I highly recommend to anyone who loves New Adult and contemporary romances.

This is the perfect ending. Absolutely perfect. Chanel Cleeton gives her fans what they want in this last installment to the International School series and I am grateful to have read such a fabulous New Adult series.
FRENCH KISSED is all about Fleur. The moment I found out the last book in the International School trilogy was about Fleur, I was so excited. She is one of the best characters in this entire series. In this story, Fleur finds her happily ever after in the most unlikely of places.

"She was a rollercoaster, and it was the best ride I’d ever been."

This is THE story of the popular girl, and the boy in the sidelines.

I started the series with me not-really-liking this popular girl who modeled and appeared on one music video. I found her a little snob, with her nose up in the air, and dreading her actions towards Maggie. But later, the moment I saw her vulnerability and her good side, you just can’t help but love her. She has issues, she is a bit misunderstood, she has baggage,

Why I Picked It Up

I had been wondering about our favorite French girl Fleur–and I was so excited when I heard that she would get a book and a story!


Fleur hides behind a mask of indifference while in reality, she is struggling with a lot of things. When she is paired with her enemy since freshman year, Max, on a project in class, both of them are less than excited. Sure, they’ve been crushing on each other for a while…but they don’t get along and that is that. But as they start opening up to

I love <3 Fleur and Max's relationship!!!
Can one be jealous of a fictoinal character? Yes. Yes, you can. Chanel Cleeton has created a guy who is sweet, sexy and knows what he wants. Raise your hand if you want your own MAX!


First of all, this is the third book in the International School series but the first one I read so far. So for everyone who is interested, yes you can read this as a stand-alone. But you should read the other two first if you want to read about Samir (Fleurs cousin)and Maggie

Oh boy, where do I even start? I fell in love with the International School series recently when I read both I See London and London Falling. I just couldn’t get enough of Samir and Maggie in both those books and was sincerely hoping that Cleeton would write another from Samir’s point of view considering the new direction he was undertaking. I didn’t get my wish. However, Cleeton did gift us with a book that’s all about Fleur.

It never occurred to me that Fleur would have an interesting backstory
In I See London and London Falling I knew there was more to Fleur than met the eye. Even though she made me shake my head a lot and it was obvious she was her own worst enemy in many ways, she was realistic, and I appreciated that. She was who she was, and she didn’t apologize for that. She was one of those characters I sort of begrudgingly liked and even admired at times. I loved what a loyal friend she was to Maggie, and how even with her own stuff going on, she was still there when her friend ...more

Finally, we get to see what the inside of Fleur Marceaux's mind looks like. And it's a doozy.

French Kissed is the story of Fleur, a wild and carefree young woman finishing her senior year at the International School in London with her best friends Mya and Maggie. She also is dating George, a very nice British boy and is perpetually bothered by Max, an American boy. There's a lot more to Fleur than meets the eye, and in this story, reader's get to hear Fleur's thoughts and feelings.

As much as I loved Samir and Maggie's story in the first two books in the International School series (and I loved them A LOT), there was something MORE to this book. Maybe it was because Fleur had been around since the beginning and I felt like I really knew her when the book started. Maybe it was her redemption. Whatever it was, it was absolutely magical and I hung on every single word.

Fleur wasn't always the easiest character to like. I cert

First I want to take the New Adult Book Club and the author for providing me with a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is actually number 3 in the International School book series and I must admit that I haven’t read the previous books but I was surprise to see that this can be read as a standalone although I’m sure that to get the complete experience it would have been better to read the previous two.

In French Kissed we meet Fleur and Max,

After Maggie and Samir's story came to an end in London Falling, the International School series didn't seem quite over yet, which is why I was so excited to read French Kissed. There was so much unexplored chemistry and tension between Fleur and Max that I couldn't be more happy to read their love story. While French Kissed can be read as a standalone, I think you'll have a greater understanding and appreciation for the novel if you've read both I See London and London Falling first.

French Kissed is another steamy romance which is just what I wanted from author Chanel Cleeton!

I am a sucker for Happily Ever After endings and no one deserves it more than Fleur Marceaux. In the previous books (I See London and London Falling) we first meet Fleur as the gorgeous and wealthy French model, whose snobbish attitude earns her the title of “Ice Queen”. As we get to know her we discover that she built a wall to protect herself from being hurt. Being ignored by your parents and having

French Kissed is such a fun and sweet book! If you’re looking for a read with little drama and sweet feels I definitely recommend this one. Our main character, Fleur, is going through some things, dealing with events from her past, but while all of this feels real and true, it’s not the type of book that’s going to drag you down.

Fleur was a secondary character in the first two books in the International School series, so I absolutely adored hearing from Fleur directly and getting to know her ful

The International School series by Chanel Cleeton is one of my favorite series. I was so excited to find out that after I See London and London Falling that she was releasing French Kissed.

I don’t think I’ve been waiting forever, but when you’re waiting for a book that you can’t wait to read it sure feels like that.

Totally worth the wait!

Anyone who knows me long enough knows that I am a Chanel Cleeton fan since I first read the blurb for I See London last year. However, and as much as I love Maggie and Samir to pieces, I was left with questions at the end of London Falling, namely "but what about Fleur???" Little did I know that the best news ever were just about to come. I was biting my nails in anticipation for French Kissed the moment I heard of it, and I have to say, I was very lucky to read it ahead of it, and it does not d ...more

Big thanks to Chanel and NetGalley for an ARC copy for review

What a great conclusion to the International School series. I have to admit I was a little hesitant about reading this book, especially knowing the bits and pieces of Fleur's sad backstory from the previous novels. But never doubt Chanel Cleeton to make a beautiful love story. And that she did!

I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Fleur's perspective. This is a girl, who at the beginning of the series I couldn't stand,

Whereas I had been a little frustrated to not have more often seen Fleur in the first two books, I am completely filled with a book which is devoted to her. We find all that made the success of the hstory between Samir and Maggie: catchy characters, a story which holds the road, a lot of dreams and some bounces.

Fleur is probably my favorite character of the series and Max made me completely fallen for him. This couple is adorable, we can only support them and encourage them. They start while bei

I had the pleasure of reading both previous books of the International School series and I loved them. When I saw that Fleur was getting her own book I was ecstatic. Fleur was an interesting character and I knew that a story about her wouldn't disappoint. Of course French Kissed can be read as a standalone, but reading I See London and London Falling would give the whole picture for sure.
