It didn't take a medical degree to know that Josh Weitz was insanely hot, from his swoony grey-green eyes to his dark hair that begs my fingers to run through it.

But he was my best friend, and I was too busy crushing on his roommate--otherwise known as the Wrong Guy--to notice.

Sure, Josh has always been there for me, and he makes me laugh like no one else can. But it's

Elsa Gomes (BookishAurora)
Rate: 3.5 / 5 stars

My first read by this author and it was a sweet one. What called me to this book was the friends to lovers trope and the Paris setting and well I was not disappointed on either of those fronts. However, it was hard to get into the book at the beginning for me, the first 40% felt really pointless...you see the heroine pinning for someone and you know from the blurb that that someone is not the hero of the story. So yeah, that whole stretch of book felt pretty pointless to me.

4 Star review French Kiss by Stacy Travis

Stacy Travis is a new author to me and I found French Kiss to be well written and descriptive with the author certainly brought Paris to life for me.

Hannah and Josh met by accident and quickly became best friends. However it is Maddox, Joshs roommate who Hannah falls for.

Sadly Maddox is not the man that Hannah thinks he is and when he disappoints her, it is Josh who is there to pick up the pieces. This is a friends to lovers story that was sweetly

Why are we so blind to love when it's right in front of us?

This author is new to me and with this novel she has won me over and for sure will keep reding her next books.

Her writing is easy to connect and understand.

I loved Hannah and Josh's relationship, it is adorable to see them interact, the connection they have is what most of us are looking for. Hannah is dazzled by a mirage, and is very lucky that when she realizes Josh is there to support her as he always has.

To be honest, theres parts

French Kiss a great debut novel, I really enjoyed this well written romance with wonderful characters and I have to say Stacy Travis brought Paris to life for me with her wonderful descriptions of the city of love.
Hannah and Josh are best friends and like all friends Hannah is quick to let Josh know she has fallen for Maddox who happens to be Joshs roommate. Hannah may have put Maddox up on a pedestal but he is not the man she thinks he is and its her best friend to who ultimately comes to her

I received an eARC of this book and was very excited to read it! I love friends to lovers and a romantic setting.

It was really easy to get into at first but then I had to push my way through. It was very detailed; to the point it turned me off a bit, but her writing is very good and I liked the characters. I would have given this book 5 stars if the details in the beginning didnt make it so hard to get into because once you got into it; about 30-40% in, the story really took off from there!

This was a great debut of a book. I had a fun time reading it, the way that Stacy had talked about Paris, that made me want to visit all the places she talked about.
Josh and Hannah were so adorable the way they meet one another. This was a friend to lovers romance that I couldnt get enough of. I recommend this book to everyone.

If I didn't know this was a debut author, I wouldn't have thought this was the first book from Stacy Travis! I was very quickly lost in this story. Hannah, Josh and friends all met in their residency. I felt like I was living it with them. The long days, hard work and lack of time for friends, but despite being able to see each other often, they did make time for their group of friends. At the end of residency, they had a little time

I loved the relationship between Josh and Hannah. I kept wanting to shake her throughout the book when she kept saying she wasnt attracted to him because it was obvious they were absolutely perfect for each other. I did not understand why she would want someone so temporary kind Maddox when Josh was someone you hooked and hung onto forever. This was such a sweet friends to lovers romance in the city of love.

This is a lovely debut novel for a new writer.
If you love Paris, you'll enjoy the detailed background, scenery and atmosphere, making you reminisce on your own experiences in the city of lights ans love.

Overall, an enjoyable read.

This was a good book about two medical students that become best friends. Hannah and Josh meet over buying a tuna sandwich before class one morning and they soon become best friends through medical school. When she meets the hot student, Maddox she is instantly attracted to him but she knows that hes no good for her because he only dates women for a month at a time. Hes always throwing hints to her like hes interested but nothing ever happens until the night that they kiss. Josh doesnt ...more

I really enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting. I work in health so it was interesting to read about the internship and residency program and the group of friends that formed through it. The character development was interesting in learning about the different depths of each character: their motivations and why people act the way they do. But also realising that things arent always that simple and easy to plan for and people are just complicated. This was a nice easy read with characters ...more

Romance where you least expect it... right under your nose... loved that it was set in France and that romance can be found when your not looking for it.

Loved reading it

This is an adorable novel.

Girl meets hot guy and obsesses over what could be. Hot guy is an utter disappointment. Girl realizes her perfect guy was the one she least expected.

Sounds like a common story but this one seems so different. The author's love for Paris shines through and really helps you become immersed in the atmosphere of it all.

You dont just fall in love with the characters in this one.

You fall in love with the place.

A sweet story with a very good underlying message to look around you and not having a plan can sometimes be a good thing.The level of detail when Hannah is in Paris is astounding. I feel like I could refer to this novel as a tour guide for where I should visit and how to get there on a sojourn to France.

Overall Review: ⭐⭐⭐1/2

Many years ago, I found this indie romantic comedy set in Los Angeles on Netflix. It had one of my favorite character actresses in it, Sara Rue. As I was watching her character seek out love in her beloved Los Angeles, I noted that the true love affair of this movie wasnt the one between her and the hero of the story. Instead, the love relationship of this movie was her character and the city of Los Angeles. Many of LAs little known treasures were highlighted in this movie,

Escape to Paris and fall in love with Josh and Hannah in French Kiss! For Stacy Travis debut novel, it was amazing and had me hooked from the start.

Hannah and Josh have been best friends since the start of their medical residency. Theyve been through the highs and lows of qualifying to become a doctor together over the past three years, but have never been more than friends, due to both having significant others and Hannah maintaining that she was never attracted to Josh. It was hinted that

Hannah knows gorgeous, cocky men are not for her. So why does she fall for yet another? Why can't she fall for her friend, Josh, Maddox's roomate, Maddox to whom she's so attracted even though she shouldn't be?

Perhaps she just might do that, though, when Josh comes to tell her Maddox isn't showing up for what could have been something great, her friend that she wishes she could fall for instead of undependable Maddox who obviously isn't into her.

I gotta be honest and say that my favorite part

Stacy Travis is a new to me author, and this was a sweet friends-to-lovers story, with a bit of European travel thrown in.

Hannah is a medical student, and is best friends with Josh. They lean on each other, joke, and just fit. The problem is that shes not attracted to him. She holds another friendship with Maddox, another resident who is constantly flirting with her and others. When theyre both dating other people, he has deep conversations with her, however when theyre finally single, he makes

I was really interested in reading this book after checking out the blurb. It didn't quite match what I expected, though.

I thought Hannah would have more of an attraction to Josh from the beginning, but she repeatedly mentions she doesn't think he's attractive and he is only her friend. A lot of the first half of the book also covers the flirting and crush she has on Josh's friend and roommate Maddox.

Maddox honestly came across as less than genuine from the beginning. Hannah allowing him to jerk

Hannah is been best friends with Josh as they supported each other through their medical training. Although he is very attractive, she never saw him as more than a friend in large part due to the fact that she only had eyes for his roommate Maddox.

After she finishes school and before she starts her career, she and Maddox make plans to meet in Paris but when Josh was there and Maddox wasnt, she finally realizes which man she belongs with. As she and Josh spend time together in the most romantic

I like a good friends to lovers story, really I do, but there was no emotion in this book. I felt like it didnt flow right and there was a lot of filler. Josh and Hannah met when they were assigned together during their residency. Throughout the three years, there wasnt a whole lot written about them. It was always about Hannah and someone else. Then all of a sudden they meet up in Paris and are in love? Throughout their time there, I felt like I was reading a travel guide book instead of a love ...more

While it wasn't my favorite book of the week, its a strong debut from the author! A few missteps along the way for me: a little slow in parts, a little too much details where it didn't matter, and I had an issue with the focus on Josh's looks earlier in the book. It was made clear he wasn't "insanely hot" early on and that was seemingly the only thing keeping Hannah from turning their friendship into more. That might be me being overly picky, but it bothered me.

Overall it was a good read and

Stacy Travis is a new author to me, bringing another cute friends to lovers story to life.
It's often hard to read a book where you know the person is making a mistake and that is how I felt about Hannah through this story. You just want to grab her and steer her in the right direction.
Of course, things turn out perfect in the end and it's all about the journey.

This story and sweet and a easy read.

This is a debut from this author, and I will certainly be looking out for her work in the future. Josh and Hannah as both studying to become doctors but are they ready to take the next step from friends / lovers? No spoiler: this is well worth reading. This is a sweet romance story which had me intrigued and hooked throughout, and I recommend for all.

However, the story was so slow getting into. The story really didnt puck up the pace until half way through.

I write contemporary romance novels with strong female characters and the men who love them for their badassery. I like warm sun, cold rosé, and cheese as its own food group. When I'm not writing, I'm in running shoes on a stupidly steep hill, looking for a view of the ocean.
