Megan Vandemeer meant to tell her parents about her broken engagement, but a month and a half later she finds herself boarding a plane home to her wedding. Having stretched avoidance to its limits, it's time to come clean - a terrifying prospect since her mother is sure to blame her rather than her cheating, emotionally frigid ex. A couple of drinks and two Dramamine later, Megan finds herself spilling her sob story to the tall, dark, and handsome stranger in the seat next to her.

They say Paris is always a good idea.... You know what I say? Paris would be a much better idea if I spoke the dang language. I can't even board the metro to visit the Louvre without ending up at the Moulin Rouge, and let's not even mention how I'll ever make it through a day at my new office. Fortunately my company hooks me up with my own personal translator. Ooh la la. Or should I say bloody hell? Because he's charming, witty, and British, and he brings the city to life for me.

Would you try another book from Jamie Beck and/or Siiri Scott?

not if you want audio-book - couldn't get past lisp and "sss" when reading, thought it would get better as she went on, but couldn't make it through 1st chapter in book and not worth it, cancelled the whole book series.

What could Jamie Beck have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

different narrator...never got past 1st chapter,and no time to read it myself so cancelled whole series from kindle

What didn’t you like about Siiri Scott’s performance?

Might be a great person, but she has a lisp and any word with an "ss" and she doesn't sound good as a guys voice.

Lauren had been raised to not be afraid of anything, and she lived by that code, that is until her dad died and left everything in her hands. Now she’s not only in charge of her two younger sisters, but she’s running a full-blown Texas ranch. Caring for a thousand-acre ranch has its ups and downs, physically, mentally, and financially. All she is looking for is a little break. What she doesn't have time for is someone who will only complicate her life further.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

loved the story and book , it was the audio that was attached..not good at all,the guy made the characters sound awful. when you couldn't distinguish between guy and girl..kind of turn OFF

What did you like best about this story?

loved it already started the next one, need different voice for audio

What three words best describe Roy Samuelson’s performance?

yuck,not good for love story, great narration until needed individual voices and NO WAY, had to turn off to enjoy book..waste of money

Any additional comments?
