When Tucker Branch, playboy heir to Branch Bolt and Screw, screws and bolts a week before their wedding, Mia Devine wants nothing more than to crawl under her newly monogrammed sheets and plan a funeral for her dignity. But her friends convince her that bitter tastes better when it’s drowned in Bordeaux, so Mia grits her teeth and packs her bags, determined to make the best of her luxurious Paris honeymoon—alone.
She never planned on meeting Lucas Fournier.
The easygoing bartender’s scruffy good looks and less-than-sympathetic ear annoy her at first, but when she takes him up on his offer to show her around the city, she discovers that the romance of Paris isn’t just a myth.
Nor is the simultaneous O.
The last thing Mia needs is another doomed love affair, but since she only has a week, she figures she might as well enjoy la vie en O with Lucas while she can. But each day—and night—with Lucas is better than the last, and suddenly her heart is telling her this is more than a rebound fling.
Is it just the seduction of Paris…or could this be the real thing?
I loved this story, it really was a breath of fresh air & I think primarily ~ for me ~ it was because I could relate to Mia whole heartedly! She likes order, dislikes chaos & drama and lives her life with aims, aims that if she doesn’t achieve she wont be complete!
So when her fiancé calls off their wedding a week before the big day her world is rocked to it’s core! What does a girl do when her world is upside down, she acts out of the norm, Mia decides, with a little help from her best friends that she’ll still go on her honeymoon to Paris sans groom & try and mend her broken heart.
She doesn’t expect to find a sexy half American working in the first bar she stumbles into but find him she does, and so begins the start of a beautiful journey of finding herself again, facing challenges she didn’t think she was capable of and experiencing her first big “O”.
This story is a light read, sweet, funny, witty & seriously sexy, it’s a delight to see a woman rebuild her crushed self esteem and a man challenge his beliefs in the name of love. Lucas & Mia have chemistry that just shines off the page, I loved how they interacted & complimented each other without ever really trying, it just seemed to happen so effortlessly.
I hope Mia & Lucas are both able to accept each others ways & change just enough of themselves to find their very own definition of a Happy Ever After!

Mia Devine fell hard for Lucas Fournier after their magical week in Paris. But eight months later, the free-spirited half-French musician still hasn't made any promises about their future. And as magnifique as long-distance phone sex is, nothing compares to the real thing.
Fed up with stolen weekends and lonely nights, Mia flies to New York armed with a list of reasons why they should take the next step, but an unexpected guest in Lucas's apartment derails her plans. He’s been keeping secrets--worse, he claims he's happy with the way things are.
Without the magic of Paris, can their mismatched love survive?
