My first mistake?
Causing the sexy Frenchman a concussion.
Telling the hospital staff that I was his girlfriend.
In my defense, he didn’t speak English.
Taking him home, letting him sleep in my bed. Naked.
I never said I was Florence Nightingale . . .
He gave me a night I’ll never forget but when I wake, he’s already gone.
I tell myself it’s his loss, that I wasn’t expecting him to stay forever anyway,
And my life moves on.
I get a new job. A fresh start in a new country and I stop counting my mistakes.
Until those striking green eyes meet mine across the office,
And it all comes rushing back.
But he’s not that man anymore.
Gone are his jeans and his playful attitude.
Rich and powerful, he’s now sin in a suit.
And his English is perfect.
Were his kisses also lies? His caresses meaningless?
I feel like such a fool—I want to wrap my hands around his neck.
Though not to hug him,
Because the man is a force of nature.
A master manipulator.
He’s also my new boss.
And I already hate him.
The biggest lies are the ones we tell ourselves.
RELEASE DATE: July 19, 2020
Not my first read by the author, and I have read many on/off. So far it’s been 50/50 with the author’s books but I keep coming back because the ones I have loved I REALLY loved. This one was something different for me from the author.
I was on the fence about this one, it really started promising for me but the more I got into it the more I was feeling overwhelmed, it starts of in the US and migrates to France which I don’t have a problem with but I sadly have to say that there was TOO MUCH French and accent for me…I don’t mind it at all but this was overwhelming for me. The heroine is a easy going, sassy, true american and the hero is a Frenchman on a mission, rude, broody and very handsome. This is a office-romance type of feel, unfortunately I did not feel this one, just couldn’t connect fully, I kept trying to fully understand all the French and well the heroine just rubbed me wrong, she was just too simple and the hero there was huge potential there. *Just because it did not work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you.
