From #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone romance…
The first time I met him, his sexy British accent almost talked me into giving him my number on the spot. The second time, he nearly charmed the panties off me with his wit. Then I learned he’s the key to success in my new job in Paris. The man who tempts me into fling-worthy dirty daydreams has turned out to be my personal translator, and his accent is the hottest thing I’ve ever heard.
My mantra is simple — Don’t mix business with pleasure. I do my best to resist him as he teaches me how to converse with my co-workers, navigate the metro and order the perfect bottle of wine at dinner. But I also figure out how to tell the charming and clever man what I most want to say — that I want him to take me back to his flat — tonight.
Except there’s a catch…
One more assignment before I take off on my big adventure…
And it involves the toughest work ever — resisting the fetching American woman I spend all my days with. But you know what they say about best intentions. Soon, we’re spending our nights tangled together, and I don’t want to let her go. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and before we know it I’ll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.
What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing…unless one of you is leaving.

Fly Girl’s Review:
This is the best read this year!!! It makes it in my top 5, maybe my top 3 list. I fell in love with this book about a third of the way through when I thought to myself, “this the kind of romance I want.” It’s not the sickly sweet kind, but the–I’m so interested in you I remember everything, kind.
Griffin and Joy are amazing together. They start out as interested friends who turn into lovers. They have this amazing easy romance. It’s deep, but it feels casual and the whole thing is sensual. Lauren uses the backdrop of Paris and the scents of the fragrance business along with the decadent luxuries, only Paris has to offer, to make it sensual. I want this kind of romance. Didn’t I already say that? Sorry, but really and truly this is how romance should be. This one isn’t the stuff of dreams, with the exception of romance in Paris, but the stuff of real life where people respect and love and care for one another.
Both characters are constantly doing things for one another that are small, but show how much they pay attention to the desires and dreams of one another. They aren’t trying to change each other, they just want to be together. There is not pull of how do I get him/her to say they love me, or go where I want them to go, or be who I want them to be. This story shows how two people together enhance one another, or how two halves make a whole. It simple and beautiful.
I’m giving this 5 of 5 propellers because, well, it’s probably the best read of the year!!!, for me that is. I’ve only said that about 1 other book this year, so when I do my end of year wrap up, I’ll let you know if it stays at the top.
