Overview

The first standalone book in CJ Duggan's HEART OF THE CITY series - a very sassy, super sexy New Adult romance from the internationally bestselling author of the SUMMER and PARADISE series.

'You're breaking up with me!'
He was silent.
'In Paris.'
Eyes dropping.
'Under the Eiffel-fucking-Tower!' I screamed.


Twenty-five-year-old Claire Shorten had looked forward to spending a romantic weekend in Paris for as long as she could remember, and now it was here - three blissful days of strolling through cobbled streets arm-in-arm with her beloved, eating copious amounts of baked goods and soaking up the culture through each and every pore of her body. Well, at least, that was how she'd pictured it . . .

Even after her boyfriend dumps her rather unceremoniously in the most romantic place on earth, Claire is determined not to give up on her dream altogether - with or without a boyfriend. She finds herself a job in the kitchen of a small hotel; Michelin-starred it most certainly is not, but somehow Claire makes a place for herself amidst the dirty dishes and the foreign misfits who run the place.

When the restaurant attracts the attention of the enigmatic - if not slightly terrifying - tycoon Louis Delarue, and Claire manages to survive his high-powered business luncheon from hell, she knows that she can survive anything, surely. But all bets are off when Louis makes a game-changing decision: he's coming back for a second course . . .

** contains sneak peek chapters of NEW YORK NIGHTS and LONDON BOUND **

Poor Claire, nothing like having your dreams crash right at the most romantic spot in her mind. When the highly anticipated proposal morphs into the total destruction of all her expectations, Claire just can't go back to the life she had and instead decides after booting the boyfriend to stay in Paris to figure out her next steps. The lovely kind new friends who work at her hotel helped her in her distress and when they need help preparing the hotel for meeting with a reality makeover super chef come to inspect the premises for a place on his show she volunteers. Can this hotel be saved? I loved this twist of reality in love/kitchen/hotel management. The quirkiness of the characters and situations make me want to try my fate at life in Paris.

Just disappointed! Where is the love story?! Well after chapter 20 did the love start to show....maybe. It needed a next book or at least an epilogue! I felt so let down once the book hit a high note at the end and then just THE END. I was just left wanting more.

C.J. Duggan has produced another heartwarming and romantic tale. This book is first in a series, and is kicked off with a smoldering hot chef, Louis. Claire, his unexpected love interest, comes into her own after having her heart broken at the Eiffel Tower. Read and enjoy this escape in Paris.
