Publisher's summary

Josie thought she was getting a promotion at her architectural firm, but instead her career implodes. She impulsively takes up her roommates’ offer to nanny for a little girl on a mega yacht in the South of France. Even though she can't stand boats, this seems like fate giving her an opportunity to lick her wounds in a bucket list paradise while she figures out how to get her life back.

But this little girl she’s arrived to look after has a daddy. A widowed, hot, billionaire of a daddy. And if there’s anything that Josie needs less than having to be stuck on a yacht, no matter how luxurious, it’s an inconvenient and highly combustible attraction to her new boss. A man who, for all his wealth, is grumpy, conceited, and utterly closed off.

Xavier Pascale is on an emotional island of his own making. It’s just him and his daughter and he likes it that way. He works hard, his shareholders are happy, and his best friends are his body guard and the people who work for him. What’s wrong with that? But then he meets Josephine Marin. Her arrival in his life is like a deep ocean tremor along a catastrophic emotional fault line. And now…well, now, he’s very, very aware of his isolation and his very human need. But he can’t be distracted. When he gets distracted terrible things happen.

He should send the nanny home. He really should. But what if he just takes what he wants, just this one time?

This is a standalone, contemporary romance. It includes luscious scenes of sparkling blue ocean; tantalizing, seductive food; as well as a smoking hot, dirty-talking Frenchman. If traveling scares you, or sexy times scare you, then this book is not for you. But if you’re looking for a decadent armchair vacation after being stuck in one place for over a year - a story that will make you laugh, swoon, fan yourself, and cry - then this one is for you!

Not the quality of "The Indigo Girl", but good.

I have read all of Natasha Boyd's books, and enjoyed them all. After reading "The Indigo Girl" the bar was set high and this book was disappointing.
I did enjoy "Broken French," but the liberal use "F" bombs, the distasteful language used to describe two people in love (making love....or as Boyd wrote it "F&%$ing" or some other crass word, was just off... It was like listening to beautiful music and the record needle getting yanked across the vinyl. "I want to F$&% you", sounds more like "one night stand" language in a club, not a person in love on a beautiful yacht in France to an architect from Charleston, SC. It cheapened the story for me.
The narrator was really good and in other novels I would think her brilliant; however, she missed the mark when it comes to a Charleston, SC accent (and mispronounced so many southern words).
I loved "The Indigo Girl" so very much and was so impressed with the research and depth of that novel. It was the kind of book that stays with you. This one is a fun summer read, you enjoy and move on.

It’s not my preference

I didn’t like the female narrator. Not enough differentiation in voices, very bland, almost bored tone. Loved the story. I have the book which is excellent.

Amazing female narrator

The story was cute, a bit predictable. But the female narration was amazing. She did a great job distinguishing the different characters. I could listen to her all day.

Kept me intrigued,

The story had a lot of potential. Somewhat predictable but I enjoy romantic escapes into billionaire tales. I got a little tired of the characters' ongoing angst and distrust, but overall enjoyed the book.

I loved it so much!

I LOVED this book, I didn’t want it to end! My only thing was that I didn’t love the male narrator, his voice didn’t fit the character, he sounded old. I preferred when the female narrator voiced his character. But the book itself was wonderful!

A beautiful slow-burn romance

Loved this slow-burn romance. Made me want to hop on a mega yacht to Cannes with a broody Frenchman.

A great love story

As someone who loves French culture, this love story was delicious! It did take a while to ramp up but I loved the story from start to finish.

I thought the performance was okay. I do wish they would have made the male lead sound younger but that is a small critique that I could find in such a wonderful story! The character development was well done.
