Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely
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.
My rating: 5 of 5 Purple (lavender scented) Macaron stars
Seriously a MUST read!!
Loved. I love all the Blakely books I’ve read, but this one seems to top them all. Destination books seem to be the ones that leave a long-lasting impression on me, and this one definitely did. Paris has always been a place I’d love to visit, but now it’s a must. And, I know I’d explore it in a different way than I would have before reading Wanderlust.
Joy and Griffin were a delight and their banter was so much fun. Watching characters grow in a realistic fashion is so rewarding, and Joy and Griffin truly did in the book. And since 99 % of my reading is done by audio, I have a thing about narrators. Well, Richard Armitage’s voice was panty melting. British accents really are the best. You are so right, Joy.
OK, I also have a love for scents, and now I need a list of perfumes mentioned in the story with their scent descriptions. I am intrigued and need to go out and smell all those listed. Help, Lauren. 🙂 Thanks for writing an amazing story and sharing. ❤
