Beginning by J.O Mantel. I loved every minute of this book; I was attached from the first page to the very end. Author J.O Mantel did an amazing job writing this book. My heart was racing while I was reading it. The characters and their chemistry was amazing. Beginning is the story about guy named Ashford Tanner, and a girl named Gabriela Devereaux. Ash has the world at his feet and his relentless drive and ambition are finally paying off. But, dealing with an overbearing and demanding employer ...more

Beginnings is a beginning to what I can only assume is a serial because it ends on a cliffhanger.

When up-and-coming lawyer Ash is pretty much forced to either go to Paris on business or be fired, his long-term girlfriend, Laura, makes the decision a lot easier for him when she dumps him. So Ash arrives in Paris unattached, and soon falls for Gabriella, the sexy waitress at the cafe he's been frequenting. And in an instalove instant, they are head over heels in love with one another.

So many emotions - beautifully written

BEGINNINGS, book one in J.O Mantel's new series is such a change from his previous series, DARK FALKON, but don't let that dissuade you from reading this one. From the very beginning J.O will have you inexplicably drawn into the world of Ashford "Ash" Tanner, a man who is about to have his entire world turned upside down.

Ash is off to Paris, the city of love, but there are two problems: 1) he’s going for work and 2) he’s just broken up with his girlfriend.

Beginnings came extremely close to bringing me to my knees. See, Ash has to travel to the City of Love for work, while dealing with the ending of his longtime relationship. But fate has better things in store for him when he meets Gabriela, so his life takes a new and exciting turn. Seriously, this story was an emotional ride that just wrecked me, and yeah, I'll probably reiterate that in many different ways throughout this review, because it was that emotional for me. The utter heartbreak I fel ...more

JO Mantel was a new to me author. I really liked his writing style and enjoyed the story, but I was thinking that there was a lot of story to resolve in the rapidly shrinking number of pages in the book! When I read the last page, I understood why....there's a cliffhanger!!
I guess I now have to wait to continue the story of Ash and Gabriela.

I hate giving such a negative review but I found the book really hard to get into if I'm being honest. Ash's boss thinks everyone is put on this planet to serve his every need including his staff having to sacrifice their home lives. In Ash's case that might have been a good thing.
Beginnings is a short OK read, ends on a cliffhanger but I don't think I'll be reading the follow-up book sadly.

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. It is light hearted, sweet, and romantic. I didnt expect the twist at the end. Oh my, what a twist it is. Now, I can't wait to read the second book. I am recommending this book. I received this book as a gift.

This was a really quick read. Ash has a past consisting of heartbreak which ends result is constantly working. He eventually goes to Paris for a case and meets Gabriella. That's when the story gets better.
