“Charlotte Summers is a sassy, young French teacher who is two days away from moving to Paris with the love of her life and from fulfilling her dream of studying at the prestigious Sorbonne University in France. But when she discovers her fiancé’s online dating profile and has a little chat with the busty red-head he’s been sleeping with on the side, she gives up on committed relationships altogether and decides to navigate Paris on her own.
Determined to stop other women from finding themselves in her shoes, Charlotte creates an anonymous blog on how to date like a man in the City of Love—that is, how to jump from bed to bed without ever falling in love. But, with a slew of Parisian men beating down her door, a hot new neighbor who feeds her chocolate in bed, and an appearance by her sleazy ex-fiancé, she isn’t so sure she can keep her promise to remain commitment-free.
And, when Charlotte agrees to write an article for a popular women’s magazine about her Parisian dating adventures—or disasters, rather—will she risk losing the one man who’s swept her off her feet and her dream job in one fell swoop?”
I got this eBook when it was available as a free download on Amazon, I already had it on my wish list so was pretty excited when I realised I could get it for free (who doesn’t like a freebie).
I really enjoyed this book, it was fun, adventurous and kept my interest throughout. Charlotte is a great character, she is very likeable and easy to relate to, I loved the idea for her blog and really enjoyed reading her posts as she explores her crazy life in Paris.
There were parts of the story that had me laughing, parts that made me feel sad and parts that had me saying “what on earth are you doing?”, I genuinely didn’t know what Charlotte and her friends would get up to next and that was definitely part of the attraction for me.
I loved reading the wonderful vivid descriptions of France and also the hilarious chat up lines that some of the French men used on Charlotte. The whole story has a bright fun feel to it and I really liked that, but there was also a message to be gained from it – the grass isn’t always greener is a phrase that came to mind quite a few times whilst reading this book.
This was a fun, entertaining and girly read that also had a good message, a perfect holiday book!
