Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

My Rating: 4 stars

My Thoughts:

I’ve heard a lot of great things about this book and have been meaning to read it for quite sometime. Now that I have, I must say that I loved it! It was a breath of fresh air from a lot of the heavily emotional books that I’ve been reading lately. This story was light, fun, and sweetly romantic!

When Anna gets sent to Paris to study at a boarding school for her senior year, she never expected it to turn out the way it does. She meets the handsome and charming English Étienne St. Clair. Too bad he has a girlfriend and she has a budding romance back home. Still, the two get to be friends, good friends, and they spend the year tiptoeing around their feelings for each other, which most of the time was slow and painful torture!

Anna and St. Clair were both outstanding characters and they were perfect together! Even though most of the book they were just “best friends” with not-so-secret-but-nobody-says-so feelings for each other its what made their romantic relationship so great in the end. They really truly got to know each other and were able to talk about anything and everything but at the same time had an easygoing relationship.  Everything about their friendship was real and believable which just made their romance all the more so. It really was torture waiting for one of them to make a move but whenever they did, it was so worth the wait!

Like I said before, this was definitely a fun, light read. The writing, characters, and dialogue were all witty and clever and held my attention from the first page until the last! I also loved the whole romantic notion that the story took place in the City of Love and the fact that parts of the city and history were worked into it the story just made all the more interesting!

This is a must read for anyone in need of a wonderful, happy-go-lucky romance with a happily ever after!
