Overview

When Tucker Branch, playboy heir to Branch Bolt and Screw, screws and bolts a week before their wedding, Mia Devine wants nothing more than to crawl under her newly monogrammed sheets and plan a funeral for her dignity. But her friends convince her that bitter tastes better when it's drowned in Bordeaux, so Mia grits her teeth and packs her bags, determined to make the best of her luxurious Paris honeymoon-alone.

She never planned on meeting Lucas Fournier.

The easygoing bartender's scruffy good looks and less-than-sympathetic ear annoy her at first, but when she takes him up on his offer to show her around the city, she discovers that the romance of Paris isn't just a myth.

Nor is the simultaneous O.

The last thing Mia needs is another doomed love affair, but since she only has a week, she figures she might as well enjoy la vie en O with Lucas while she can. But each day-and night-with Lucas is better than the last, and suddenly her heart is telling her this is more than a rebound fling.

Is it just the seduction of Paris...or could this be the real thing?

Pretty good book, but beware - there is a cliffhanger at the end of this book - you don't get to find out what happens unless you buy the next book. Wish I had known that before I got this one. Why can't the author finish the book instead of leaving us hanging???

Holy hell...I loved this book! What an awesome read, this was the first book I've read from this author and I was not disappointed. You'll laugh, you'll get choked up (I did) and your eReader will try desperately to keep up with you as you fly through the SMOKING hot sex scenes...seriously good stuff!! ;)

I loved this book. Great story. I was sad when I got to the last chapter because it was the last chapter. I will read it again.

I fell head over heels in love with Melanie Harlow's writing when I read her debut novel, Speak Easy. I loved that novel so much I knew I'd pick up any book she wrote afterward. I'm just as in love with her latest release, Frenched, if not a bit more so - this novel was an absolute pleasure to read!  In Frenched, we meet Mia who has just been jilted by her ex-fiance, Tucker, A WEEK BEFORE THE WEDDING (!) and is convinced by her friends, Coco and Erin to take the honeymoon trip to Paris by herself. They reasoned it would give her time and space to think, and she may as well get away from it all for a while. Coco and Erin were such great friends to Mia in her time of need. Every girl needs friends like them.  Right away it was apparent to me that Mia was more upset about the wedding not taking place rather than the loss of the relationship itself. It's easy to get caught up in the wedding planning and forget about the actual marriage itself, and that's what Mia did. Not that I blame her - she does plan weddings for a living! As painful as it was for her, Tucker calling off the wedding ended up allowing her to reexamine who she is and the choices she's made up to now.  One of my favorite scenes in Frenched (and there are many!) is when she flies into the sports bar where Lucas works with an expression on her face almost daring any couples there to be openly affectionate - the last thing she wants to see right now in the city of love. She's spunky, beautiful, and intelligent, and there is no reason she wouldn't be able to pick herself back up and carry on.  Lucas was oh-so-deliciously-good for her in many ways - not only was their chemistry off the charts, but he taught her how to live in the present without planning out every detail of the future. I think Mia was so busy worrying about what she wanted to happen that she wasn't appreciating life as it came. The here and the now.  Isn't that something we all can relate to? I definitely can. One of the biggest challenges in life is to slow down and enjoy what you have while you have it, but fear gets in our way. Mia had huge fears she ended up coming face to face with...fears she had kept buried for so long that it was painful to face them but also necessary in order for her to find happiness.  The sexual chemistry between Mia and Lucas certainly didn't hurt matters, wink wink. He is smoking hot and compassionate and caring. Their sex scenes were intense! The feelings I could see developing between them made the sex even hotter. They couldn't breathe around each other. They needed each other and couldn't get enough, and it was just, wow!  Overall, I can't recommend Frenched enough. I'm a huge fan of Melanie Harlow and the characters she creates. Her name alone is all I need to know what to read next.   I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book was absolutely amazing! I fell in love with Mia immediately. Her need to be organized and make lists really spoke to me. I truly enjoyed her beautiful story about strength and getting to know herself. The story played out like a movie in my head, which I loved. It also made me go through a range of emotions, from feeling disappointed, nervous, angry, turned-on, almost brokenhearted, and then it finally left me feeling hopeful for her future. This book even moved me to tears when I thought she was going to give up on her possible happiness because of an expectation. This was the first of Melanie Harlow's books that I have read, but I can assure you that it will NOT be the last. Frenched was a book that had a little bit of everything, and a lot of beauty. I highly recommend it.

Sweet and original story with grear character development. I loved that the author really drew the connections- instead of "we talked for hours", she tells you what they talked about. I also really appreciated the legit connection, instead of the typical physical attraction foundation. I loved the ending and didnt think it was a cliffhanger. Series- yes. But this book has an independent ending, with the option to keep learning their story.

Frenched was my first foray into reading a Melanie Harlow book and I loved it! Recently dumped Mia Devine decides to go on the honeymoon to Paris that she and her former fianc&eacute; had been planning for some time. She had her itinerary planned out and there was nothing that was going to derail her on her trip of a lifetime even though she was furious after being dumped via text message. On her first night in Paris, Mia finds herself in a little bar when seeing all of the romance Paris has to offer overwhelms her and makes her melancholy. When she meets Lucas Fournier she is about ready to throw in the towel and return to America, but after a conversation with him, he tells her he is willing to show her around Paris and be her friend. The two set off the next day touring the sights of Paris all while they realize there may be more here than a friendship. But can Mia take that chance having just met Lucas the night before? And what about the fact that he lives in two different countries during the year? Oh yeah, and would this just be a rebound? Frenched was an enjoyable, sexy adventure that shows you that sometimes fate has a lot more to do with things than you might think. I loved the characters of Mia and Lucas and I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

If I had to sum this book up in one word, I would say it&rsquo;s adorable. This was a new author for me, but it is just a charming and adorable and funny and touching read. Mia should be marrying Tucker Branch. Except for one tiny detail, he left her the week before their wedding. Mortified and embarrassed, she just wants to hide under her blankets for the rest of her life. But, her friends convince her to go on vacation to try and forget it all. Well, except that the vacation is actually her honeymoon to romantic Paris&hellip;but since Tucker is footing the bill she figures why not? Once in Paris, she decides that she&rsquo;s made a mistake. She decides to have a drink in a bar and then go home, but this is where fate has something good in store for her, and his name is Lucas Fournier. After hearing her story, he convinces her to stay in Paris with him for her vacation, and to show her the beauty of Paris. What neither of them plans is the insane chemistry between them. Can this away from home fling be more for Mia, or has Tucker scarred her heart forever? First of all, this book is legit funny. I laughed out loud more than once. The banter between the characters is witty and fun and I loved the tone and pace of the whole book. Lucas is awesome and sweet and exactly what you want in a leading man. Mia is funny and interesting and strong and introspective, exactly the kind of girl you&rsquo;d want to have as a friend. And together, they are explosive both in and out of bed. I also thought the concept of this whole book is sweet. Sometimes people come into your lives when you are least expecting it, but they arrive just when you need them the most. I loved the idea of two people from different places in the world connecting in a way that needed and good for both of them. Kind of helps to heal the love-jaded heart of the reader as well. As I said, adorable. Reviewed by Sara Squared for Crystal&rsquo;s Many Reviewers *Copy Provided for review*
