"One of my favorite romances ever, Frenched has it all, from the sexy charming hero to the clever dialogue to the dreamy Parisian setting. And it has the most delicious treat of all-sweet, scorching, passionate, toe-curling, fan-me-with-palm-fronds sexy scenes." (Lauren Blakely, New York Times best-selling author)
The storyline is not a new. But it has a different angle I guess. I just really enjoyed the love story part of these two characters. I am not so young so the sex became a bit much. I wanted to know how they worked things out. It is worth the credit. A good listen. A good narrator. I love good dialog and this one was good.
I am an avid reader and blogger at Books and Tequila book blog. Because of having 8 children audiobooks became a must.
This book made me feel like I was in the story. My emotions went up and down with each situation. Melanie writes a super hot panty melting story. The narrator did bring more to the story then I had when reading the book. Seriously I wouldn't mind getting Frenched over and over again.
Love all romance, dark romance, romantic comedy and suspenseful romance!
Absolutely loved this book! Mia and Lucas are scorching hot together! After being dumped a week before her wedding, Mia's best friends convince her to go to Paris for her honeymoon. When she gets there, she gets a bit depressed after seeing all the couples in love and therefore takes herself to a bar where she meets a sexy bartender, Lucas. After hearing her story, Lucas offers to show her the sights. What ensues after will have your body burning!! What a trip!
No, the narrator sounded like Jennifer Tilly and I didn't like her Lucas voice.
I did not like her Lucas voice - did not sound like a guy at all.
I enjoyed this story and the reader. My only complaint (and this is with a lot of books in this genre) is when the conflict is so contrived. I dislike when the main character stands I his/her own way. That just makes me crazy!
No plot complexity. Not even very erotic or steamy. Unrealistic, completely predictable, just boring. A shallow read, and heavy on the saccharine. Annoying narrator on top of it. Sorry, not my thing.
"Romantic comedy at it's best"
This book was the most perfect, funny and romantic book imaginable. I was in a bit of a book downer before this but it pulled me out of it completely.
Mia has been jilted and goes to Paris to make the most of the honeymoon alone. It seems she's made a big mistake, surrounded by romantic couples. She ends up in a bar and Lucas serves her. Lucas convinces her not to jump on the next plane home by offering to be her tour guide for the following day. Lucas is completely outside of her boyfriend profile. These two had chemistry off the charts and I loved every minute of this read.
If possible this was even better on audio than ebook. Great narration that hit all the emotions and it gave me all the feels!
