New Adult Romance -- Content intended for age 18+
Tali's always had everything a girl from The Meadow could want: fancy cars, designer labels, and a last name that carries some serious clout. Too bad it's not enough to keep her boyfriend�ex-boyfriend!�from cheating on her. Now Tali's on a mission to make herself feel better, starting with a spontaneous trip to Paris for some much needed retail therapy.
Gavin could think of a million things he'd rather do than fly a rich girl from The Meadow to Paris. Now he's stuck with her for a week, acting like her personal assistant, and it just might be the most frustrating time of his life... and strangely the most enjoyable too. There's just something about Tali he can't ignore.
When Tali's forced to choose between her family's expectations and Gavin's belief that she should stand up for herself and what she really wants, she's not sure she's strong enough for either option. If she chooses wrong, does she risk losing the other forever?

Those looking for a sweet yet sexy romance set in an exotic locale that enhances the romance between two strong-willed characters should definitely give this book a chance. We again visit the upper crust neighborhood of Meadow Ridge in this second installment of the series and meet Tali Radcliff who's just been dumped by her sleazy boyfriend Roger but soon locks horns, and other body parts, with sexy blue collar pilot Gavin Taylor. The sparks immediately start flying and as they wander the streets of Paris they discover the unexpected about each other and together will set themselves apart from who others think they are. Tali Radcliff is the proverbial spoiled rich girl, at least through part of the story. As Gavin digs deeper a more thoughtful and artistic side starts coming through and Tali starts showing some real substance. When feeling threatened by the strong emotions Gavin brings out in her she reverts back into that spoiled brat, but luckily it doesn't last long as she realizes what's truly important. She's not afraid to admit when she's wrong and shows inner strength when it mattered most. Gavin is the perfect hero, sexy and strong who doesn't let those who think they're better than him push him around. This causes some intense banter between him and Tali that has alot of sexual undertones. Watching their verbal sparring is akin to foreplay. Even though Gavin has been burned by the rich before he can't ignore the electricity between the two of them and once they finally end up in bed the sexual interlude is truly steamy. The scene builds slowly to an intense conclusion and I wish there had been more of these scenes. I truly liked Tali and Gavin together and liked how well-balanced they were bringing out a different side to each of them. This was a wonderfully entertaining story with likable characters with secondary characters who added just the right bit of tension to the story to bring our couple closer together. I liked the evolution of Tali into a stronger woman defined only for herself. The story can be read on its own and moved at a pleasant pace to make for a perfect evening of reading. So stamp your passport and add Heather Thurmeier's new book to your reading list!
