***I received a complimentary ARC from the publisher, through Netgalley.com, in exchange for honest feedback.***

After reading so many 4 and 5 star reviews, I thought that this would be an incredible story. Unfortunately, for me, it failed to deliver. As others have pointed out, there is no angst or conflict ANYWHERE in the 300+ pages of this book. In fact, the book seemed to lack any plot or purpose. I kept wondering "what is the point", as I trudged through this seemingly endless story.

This was a sweet romance with a slow simmering love story. While this was a pretty lengthy read and slow at the beginning, about midway I simply eased into a very comfortable stress free read and realized it was refreshing to have a story without all the angst and drama. Just two adorable characters falling in love in the most passionate and

English Review

Gemima is just separated from her boyfriend after discovering that he cheated on her.
Logan, who fell in love with Gemima the first time he saw her two years ago, hears the news and invites her to lunch.During this lunch, Gemima also falls in love with Logan. Thus their story begins.

The story is set in Paris (I really felt like being in Paris), which is ideal with a hero so romantic, charming and HOT, really hot! Gemima, is spontaneous, has a straight-talking which can be very

If you’re looking for a zero-angst and zero-conflict book, look no more. She is the longest book I’ve ever read that didn’t have any actual conflict in it. It’s probably also the only book I’ve read ever that has almost zilch conflict.

***Spoiler Alert!!!

The only scene that can be considered as having conflict is one in which the heroine’s ex-douchebag throws a tantrum at seeing the heroine move on with a new man (the hero). It wasn’t a particularly long scene and really only a few pages in this

5 Crazy Ass Stars!!!!!

I've said it once and I'll say it again! I love discovering new authors! Annabel Fanning is my latest find. Ok, she actually found me. Lol.

SHE is a great love story with one Crazy Hot leading man, Logan. Logan has most definitely made it onto my BBF list. I love Gemima and her "smart mouth". Her and Logan's characters are so easy to connect with and their chemistry is sizzling!

The sexy scenes were tastefully written but still have that extra little sexiness that's sure to

SHE was such a sweet story.
If you're looking for a story that will make you smile and not throw your kindle in the wall because the characters are too complicated, this one s for you!

Logan and Gemima met at a work event two years ago.
But Gemima doesn't even notice Logan, while he is completely captivated by her. Unfortunately she is already in a relationship.

Two years later Gemima's single, Logan doesnt waste a minute and contact her.
What will follow is the sweetest love story.

SHE is without a doubt the most magnificently touching and extraordinarily inspiring story that I have been privileged to read. Its emphasis on the old adage – the best things come to those who wait – just sealed the deal for me. You do not often find a story whose heart aligns with your own secret hopes and dreams. I can’t say how wonderful it feels to find a story whose characters never take for granted what they have found and will fight with everything in them in order to keep that which has ...more

Logan has been interested in Gemima since they met some time ago. With Jerry out of the picture, he makes his move.



Their chemistry is instant. She is hot and steamy, but tastefully written. It's make you melt and swoon worthy, especially backlit by the City of Love.

I'm sorry but I can't continue! I'm half way through and all I seem to read are sex scenes and how much she thinks he's hot. There doesn't seem like there's a story line other than him waiting for her for two years and taking advantage that he has her now. Im no prude, just look at my books but this is just too much and I thought Beautiful Stranger was porn in a book.

So we meet Gemima, who from the first page, I just connect with. She's hilarious and such a strong independent woman despite bring poorly treated by her then boyfriend, Jerry. Gemima has lived in France for 8 years but can't shift her American twang or hilarious attitude. I simply adored her.

A phonecall from Logan Leary to Gemima Samuels would be the making of the pair. Logan is one of the most genuine people, so trusting,

Firstly I'd like to say Thankyou for letting me read this in exchange for an honest review.
Gemima is a professional interior designer with a passion to extend her talents to outdoor landscaping too. Gemima has had a rough time. Her lecherous, cheating, good for nothing boyfriend, cheated on her with her work rival nemesis, Mimi, in a public toilet of all places! Gem understandably was devastated and left Jerry straight away, but here's where the story gets interesting.

This was given to me in exchange for an honest review.

This book was a lovely romance story about two people who fall madly in love extremely quickly, and gives you a glimpse into their lives in Paris. Gemima is a woman who had been cheated on by her long time boyfriend and ends up moving out, and changing career to escape her mundane life. Then on the other hand, we have the sexy Logan who is a sweet-hearted, loving, sometimes rogue American gent. He is the man every woman dreams of and wishes

I loved this book; it was sexy, funny and kept you going all the way through the entire story. Logan’s and Gemima’s characters were built perfectly. They were both strong, independent and have a “smart mouth” with a very little filter; perfect American implants in Paris. When these two are together it is like another side is brought out of them and the chemistry is perfect.

I did not want to put the book down. Every time I thought something bad was going to happen or it was going to slow down,

After reading the first teaser of She I was curious about the book. I looked up Annabel Fanning and read the synopsis and knew this was a book for me. I got lucky and the blog I help on was asked to give a honest review of this book.

Logan asked Gemima to lunch after he has recently found out that Gemima had broken up with her boyfriend. Gemima wasn't sure why Logan had asked her to lunch but she instantly feels a connection with him that she never felt with her ex-boyfriend of eight years. Their

So as soon as I knew this book was set in Paris, I wanted to read it - Paris always attracts me as I find the descriptions really draw me in and make me want to be there, She is no different!

I absolutely love Gemima, she's so funny; always having conversations with herself so she reminds me of me!

Logan is a dream boyfriend too, with a dream apartment to boot.

Logan has been besotted with Gemima ever since they met at a function a few years ago but Gemima was already attached (to a bit of a moron)

I love Logan and Gemima, she's got such a smart mouth you can't help but adore her! And Logan, sexy as hell Logan is addictive. After the first chapter he hooks you and you cannot put this book down until the very end.
I am still a bit mixed on him, I'm not sure if it's sweet or obsessive/stalkerish that he spent two years pining for a woman he met once and waited for his chance. I think the hot sex overrides any concern about it being a bit creepy though, he's un-freaking-believable in

This was one of those books that hooks you from the first page and keeps you turning the pages, even when you know you should be doing something else. I found myself sneaking in chapters on my phone whilst at work and I stayed up till gone 3am finishing it.

She is a well written love story that flowed beautifully and the Sex scenes were seriously hot.

This was a great book! The characters were well written and in felt like they were my friends. Logan was a sexy construction mogul and was very confident. Gemima was a beautiful woman both inside and out; she was also very funny. The chemistry between Logan and Gemima was instant and undeniably strong. It was pretty much instalove for Gemima; Logan had been waiting for two years for her to be single so I wouldn't say it was instalove for him.

This book wasn't for me. I started it. Abandoned it for a few weeks. Came back to it. Abandoned it again. Finally finished it just to see if there was more to the story. There wasn't. Much of it rubbed me the wrong way, but it's obvious other readers have enjoyed the book, and that's great. *I* couldn't find a plot (was there a conflict???? was there anything other than polite, uninspired emotions???). It was just frothy, happy sex. Also difficult to get past the so-called ex-pat Americans ...more

“Do you like my smile?” he asks, walking towards me.
 I kick off my heels, so that when he stands before me, I am suddenly much shorter than a moment ago. “It’s the best I’ve seen,” I say honestly. And, of course, he smiles at me. “You see these…” I reach up and touch his cheeks where dimples form when he’s happy, “…these are adorable. These…” I lightly touch his lips, “…well, I’d better not tell you what I’d like to do with these…” His smile widens. “And these…” I touch the edges of his eyes, “…they smile, too.” 3 likes
“Logan looks up, registers my face and smiles immediately. I hold onto the back of a chair to steady my legs. Jeez, he’s got a nice smile; dimples appear in his chiseled cheeks and there is familiarity and warmth in his eyes. Real warmth, the likes of which I’ve not often seen. It suddenly strikes me that this man, whoever he might turn out to be, is genuine.” 1 likes
