Set in: France
Summary: The sassy heroine of Sleeping with Paris is back! And this time, chocolate-covered French wedding bells are in the air . . .
It’s only been a month since Charlotte Summers reunited with her sexy French boyfriend, Luc Olivier, and he has already made her the proposal of a lifetime: a mad dash to the altar in the fairytale town of Annecy. Without hesitation, Charlotte says au revoir to single life and oui to a lifetime of chocolate in bed with Luc. She’s madly in love, and Luc is clearly the one, so what could possibly go wrong?
As it turns out, quite a lot . . .
On the heels of their drama-filled nuptials in the French Alps, Luc whisks Charlotte away to Paris for a luxurious honeymoon. But just as they are settling into a sheet-ripping, chocolate-induced haze, a surprise appearance by Luc’s drop-dead gorgeous ex-wife brings the festivities to a dead halt. Luc never told Charlotte that his ex was a famous French actress, or that she was still in love with him. Add to that Charlotte’s new role as step-mom to Luc’s tantrum-throwing daughter, a humiliating debacle in the French tabloids, and the threat of losing her coveted position at the language school—and Charlotte fears she may have tied the French knot a little too quickly.
Determined to keep her independence and her sanity, Charlotte seeks out a position at Bella magazine’s new France office while working on a sassy guidebook to French marriage. But when Luc’s secret past threatens Charlotte’s career and their future together, Charlotte must take matters into her own hands. Armed with chocolate, French wine, and a few fabulous girlfriends by her side, Charlotte navigates the tricky waters of marriage, secrets, ex-wives, and a demanding career all in a foreign country where she quickly realizes, she never truly learned the rules
Charlotte is back and boy this second installment in the series is in a word? Dramatic.
Once again I listened to this book while I was working and I found myself cringing at points. Me being the no nonsense girl I am wanted to scream at Charlotte. Luc drove me absolutely nuts for half the book.
So many secrets.
However that being said once again the writing was fantastic and I found the emotions Charlotte went through realistic. I would be exactly like her and even though I found moments cringe worthy (which I think is the point) I really enjoyed the flow of this story.
I still need to go to France.
Google French Men, click I feel lucky. Believe me you won’t be disappointed.
The story had a lot of fun twist and turns and believe me by time you finish the book you will be happy about the roller coaster of French love you went through.
