Preview — French Kissed by Chanel Cleeton
There’s a social hierarchy at the In ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
En mis reseñas para I See London y London Falling, comenté lo mucho que gusta el personaje de Fleur & lo mucho que me gustaría leer su historia. Así que, como pueden imaginarse, me emocioné demasiado cuando Chanel Cleeton anunció que a finales de año French Kissed, la historia de Fleur & Max, sería publicada. Ahora, después de haber leído French Kissed, puedo decirles que me ha gustado incluso mucho más :D
Cuando comencé a leer la seri...more
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 ...more
After I completed (and greedily re-read) I See London, I was granted ...more
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 ...more
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.)
And how ...more
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 ...more
Received an ARC for an honest review
French Kissed affected me in all ways possible.
Actual tears in my eyes after reading the final book in the International School series. Fleur and her happy ending is beyond beautiful.
I am flying. My emotions are flying. I am in love. Everything about French Kissed got me hooked from the first page until the very end. Fleur, being the "Ice Queen" that she was in the first two books, has finally loosen up and she showed more heart in t ...more
Fleur était plus humaine dans ce livre et son couple avec Max was kind off realist.
I am really glad that I'd given this book is chance, I would've missed a great history.
The epilogue was soooooooo cute ♡♡♡♡
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.

French Kissed is the last book in the International School series by Chanel Cleeton. I was very excited that Fleur was given her own story and I couldn’t wait to see how it played out. But before I launch into my review I have two words for you: THE EPILOGUE!!! Oh m ...more
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, ...more
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 ...more
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 Mag ...more
It never occurred to me that Fleur would have an interesting backstory ...more
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.
Fleur is a won ...more
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, ...more
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 certai ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
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!
When we first meet Fleur in I See London, she’s not very likable, in fact she was like every mean girl you ever encountered in school with the addition of a Fre ...more
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 ...more
