Overview

L.A. architect Nicole Lesdaux has just signed on to create a tree house for record producer Johnny Patrick's little girl, Jordi. The hunky single dad has given Nicky an unlimited budget-though she might have agreed to work for free, if it meant watching his sizzlingly sexy body by the pool every day.

But mixing business with pleasure is one of Nicky's no-nos-so she focuses on making this music mogul the Taj Mahal of tree houses. Until Johnny's ex-wife makes off to Paris with their daughter...

Since Nicky speaks the language, a desperate Johnny needs her help finding little Jordi. En route, sexual tensions run ever higher. Again and again, the two must fight back the urge to come together.

In Southern California successful wealthy record producer Johnny Patrick would do anything for his beloved nine years old daughter Jordi. Thus he hires architect Nicole Lesdaux to design a tree house for his adored child. Nicole finds herself attracted to her client and his preconscious offspring.--------------------- However, when Johnny¿s former wife drug addict Lisa on a whim takes their daughter to Paris, he panics as he knows her friends at best are not good for his little darling and she is unstable. He enlists his sexy architect who speaks a few more words of French to accompany him across the Atlantic to retrieve Jordi. Shocking herself by breaking the golden rule of never mixing business with pleasure, Nicole agrees to go to France with Johnny. In Europe the architect and the music mogul begin to fall in love, but first must rescue a preadolescent child whose mother has placed her in danger from her so-called predatory friends.------------------ Though some will wonder why Nicole as he could have easily hired an interpreter who spoke fluent French, this is a fine heated erotic romantic suspense with the emphasis on the erotica. Profanity is overused and feels more like shock therapy. However, the lead couple is a solid pair and Jordi is a precocious youngster in trouble because of her mother¿s terrible judgment especially in her choice of friends. Susan Johnson keeps the heat beyond boiling as Johnny and Nicole share much more than just a FRENCH KISS.-------------------- Harriet Klausner

I really wanted to like this book, but to me, it was just frustrating. I thought the characters could have been so much more likable and well-written, but they were as hollow as L.A. itself...I agree with another reviewer who wrote that the language Johnny used (and Nicky as well) was degrading and unromantic, not to mention unrealistic. Johnny had friends all over Paris but couldn't speak French? Yeah, right.

The story-line was really good, but it was hard to like the characters. Johnny was too macho, and Nicky too weak, even though she kept protesting that this wasn't how she normally behaved. The other thing that got on my nerves was the relationship between the ex-wife and Johnny. Everytime the ex got in trouble, he would drop everything to fix her problem. The main characters didn't seem to have anything in common but sex and those scenes were awkward at best. I was really disappointed in this book.

It was difficult to like the male character in this book because he cursed profusely and used degrading terms like 'tits', etc. It was an annoying distraction to a fun summer read.

This book should come with an NC-17 rating. I flipped through it when I received it in the mail and promptly returned it to my local store. A book about babysitting this is not.

I thought this was an amazing book! I absolutely loved it. It is definately a book that I recommend to read, and it makes a wonderful summer book. I could understand the complaints about the language but that is how the young generation talks, and it can be considered a turn-on. I loved the suspense and the plot, and Johnny's protectiveness about Nicky, it was realistic for him to want to...expecially since my man gets like that. To not know the French language without being native is a very difficult thing. I took 4 years of French and 3 more in college, and after 7 years my ability to speak is minimal. It is a hard language, and not everyone has the patience or the time to learn the language. I think the story was believable, and I highly recommend it as a fun summer read. It is definately a feel-good movie that will totally boost your spirits, and it will seem like the book just blew by. I finished it in about 5 hours and couldn't put it down.

I loved this book! It was funny, I liked the charters. It was a fun easy read. I read in only a day. It had good sex and suspense in it. I have recommended it and would read again. This was the first book I read by Susan Johnson and I enjoyed it very much.

This is now the book I thought it was when I bought it. This kind of adventure is what I would love to have been on. The romance between the two main characters is what any girl wants. Susan Johnson hit it on the nose when she wrote this book.

I really enjoyed this book but I wish that the author would have developed the characters a little more in the beginning before the "tryst" begins. The lead characters occupation was definitely original and I enjoyed her independence in this unique field. I would recommend to anyone who wants to escape on a rainy day or on a beach.
