BLOG TOUR: Frenched by Melanie Harlow

"Frenched is perfectly paced, elegantly written, and deliciously sexy. Once you start Lucas and Mia's story, you'll never want it to end." - M. Pierce, bestselling author of the Night Owl Trilogy

When Tucker Branch, playboy heir to Branch Bolt and Screw, screws and bolts a week before their wedding, Mia Devine wants nothing more than to crawl under her newly monogrammed sheets and plan a funeral for her dignity. But her friends convince her that bitter tastes better when it’s drowned in Bordeaux, so Mia grits her teeth and packs her bags, determined to make the best of her luxurious Paris honeymoon—alone.

She never planned on meeting Lucas Fournier.

The easygoing bartender’s scruffy good looks and less-than-sympathetic ear annoy her at first, but when she takes him up on his offer to show her around the city, she discovers that the romance of Paris isn’t just a myth.

Nor is the simultaneous O.

The last thing Mia needs is another doomed love affair, but since she only has a week, she figures she might as well enjoy la vie en O with Lucas while she can. But each day—and night—with Lucas is better than the last, and suddenly her heart is telling her this is more than a rebound fling.

Is it just the seduction of Paris…or could this be the real thing?

Every now and then it's nice to just read a low key romance that makes you giggle. That's exactly how I would describe this book. I think the author had a really unique sense of humor. The dialogue was very witty from start to finish.

"Be gone, TB. For fucking ever."

HAHA! Love that. Compare the runaway fiancĂ© to a bacterial infection. Very appropriate if you ask me. At least, I think that's what she was doing. That's what it reminded me of. ;)

So the storyline was about a girl named Mia who was dumped via text right before her wedding. If she was honest with herself, she was only going through the motions anyway. She was more obsessed with having the perfect wedding than she was with her fiancé, Tucker. Nevertheless, she's devastated and embarrassed. At the advice of her friends, she decides to take their honeymoon trip to Paris by herself. It's there that she meets the charismatic bartender, Lucas.

At first, she's carrying around this very pessimistic outlook on love. She thinks that Lucas is attractive, but she's not falling all over him. A sexy little romance begins to bloom though and by the end of the week, she's falling in love with this guy she met at a little bar in Paris. Love's not hopeless after all!

I really enjoyed the book. I though it was cute. I loved Mia's personality and her lists.

"Top Five Reasons (Out of 100) I am NEVER Coming Out Of This Blanket Fort."

Overall, cute, quick read. No life altering angst or anything. Just a sweet little romantic comedy.
