Publisher's Summary

She wants to go wild. A billionaire decides to go with her. For two Americans in Paris, love wasn’t in the plans in New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello’s sexy high-stakes romance.

After years of choosing safe over satisfying, a weeklong Paris fling sounds perfect to Wren Heath. And who better to have it with than Mauricio Romano, a billionaire with a reputation as a first-class heartbreaker. A few days. Fun, then done. What happens on vacation stays on vacation, right?

Paris was Mauricio’s playground, and love was never part of the game. Lust? Toujours. Then he meets a sweet woman who wants to be a sex kitten. He knows how to give her the wildest five days and nights of her life. No commitments. No strings. But the hotter it gets, the harder it is to remember his own rules.

What do you do when what happens in Paris stays in your heart and then shows up at home?

Are these two destined to clash or destined for love?

sweet romance, beautiful setting

I really enjoyed this book, which follows the first book in the series, The Broken One. It is standalone, although the characters from the first book do make an appearance and there's the overall arc/mystery about how the Dominic Corisi and the Romanos are related. (I think they are related, I assume since the family we're following are the Romanos but we're also slowly learning more about Dominic Corisi's family tree. If you're like me and you didn't read Dominic's story yet, no worries- his story itself isn't playing too heavily into it so he and his daughter, who is doing a family tree project for school, are kind of just figureheads for why the series is called the Corisi Billionaires. Although after reading this, I will be checking out his book too).

This particular story follows Mauricio, the wild, apparently really good looking and fun Romano. He's in Paris for fun and to meet up with his friend who asked him to meet with his paramour and her friend, Wren, when he got into an accident. Once Mauricio met Wren, it was insta-attraction and Mauricio and Wren decided to partake in a holiday tryst. But of course, their entanglement served to be more than just short term. There was a little angst but overall, it was well done and I loved the look into Paris, some of the major attractions as well as a look into the family dynamics of the Romanos. They are a fun bunch!

I am very much looking forward to the next book and also seeing how the Romano/Corisi connection is resolved.

I requested and received an arc through NetGalley but borrowed the book from KU so I could listen to the audiobook (Thank you for KU's free read and listen!) and the audiobook is fantastic. Mackenzie Cartwright is fantastic, playing her role and even the male voices convincingly and in such a way that I don't feel like it's too forced. Ryan West was great too. Rock Engle (I think) played a small role. But overall, I think that their narration elevated the story.

Awful

The only redeeming quality of this book is the narration.
The story and the characters have zero depth. I couldn't make it to even half of the story. The males are full of themselves, the female wishy washy, sexual innuendos every other line. It would be nice if this genre of writers would give listeners more credit to having a brain and wanting an actual storyline, not just fluff and sex.

The Wild One

This is the second installment in this series and loving it! Mauricio is in Paris for business but since that isn't going to happen since his friend is not able to meet he is sent to rouse the women from his apartment and this is where he meets Wren who is visiting from the U.S. There is instant attraction and chemistry and these two are so cute and adorable together. Playing tourist together around Paris and Mauricio teaching Wren how to be a little wild until Wren gets a call on the morning she is scheduled to leave and ends up leaving without waking him. Misunderstanding and no last names exchanged and, oh yeah, wait until the parents get involved. So, so good! Now I am excited to see where this series leads...
