I loved this! The description refers to the book as a humorous romance, so when I began to read about a Russian dictator, the mob, guns, and murder, I wasn't sure where the humor was, but let me tell you the stage is set for one of the most entertaining books I have read in quite some time. When Piers Champman and Sidney Roux wind up in the same cab, arguing over who got there first and whose cab it actually was, needless to say they were shocked and quite taken by surprise when a man with a gun hopped in and a chase with shooting and real bad guys ensued. What they weren't expecting was to find themselves in the middle of it all and now suspected as being involved in the crime and murder by the police, and even worse, the bad guys. They wind up on the run together given the ultimatum by the mob to come up with the stolen article in 24 hours or die. They now find themselves playing detective, on the run from the police, and the situations they wind up in are funny, unbelievable, and will keep you turning the pages dying to see what happens next.
Paris Love Match kind of felt like I was reading a movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It reminded me of a combination of movies and made me think of Knight and Day, with the humor of a grown-up Home Alone, and of course there was the Bond, James Bond feel there, at least that is what came to my mind when reading it. The relationship and banter between Piers and Sidney was funny and romantic, and I enjoyed their continuous banter. Then there were "Little and Large," the two goons that followed them, who I wound up loving to. Everything crescendos into an ultimate showdown and Piers finds himself really having to pull off some James Bond stunts, which made the story even more fun and interesting and romantic. Paris Love Match is fun, entertaining, action-packed, humorous, and romantic. It is really different from the paranormal, contemporary, and dystopian books I have been reading and was such a refreshing break, and I most definitely recommend it.
