Loved Loved Loved It!

Oh my gah! This book is so fracking amazing! I’m head over heels in love with Griffin and Joy! The narration is amazing, the characters are fantastic, and the story is so romantic and perfect! The backdrop of the city serves as a secondary character in the best possible way. It’s an amazing and swoon-worthy romance. One of Lauren’s absolute best!

Here’s the breakdown:

Fresh off a recent breakup, Joy moves across the pond to pursue a new position within her company. She’s wide eyed and ready for an adventure. She’s adventurous and has an amazing sense of adventure. When she runs into a sexy stranger at the local bakery, she embarks on a brand new adventure. One that will lead to an amazing love!

What I loved:

How immersive the story feels. Joy’s feelings of helplessness were so impactful, but so were her feelings of pure joy and elation at being in an amazing city so far removed from home. I felt so real. Her struggles with the language and missing home are palatable and real. I know I’d feel the same.

Griffin’s struggles with letting go of the past and living in the present have a similar emotional impact. I FLOVED him so hard. He’s sexy, smart, and also very adventurous. The sexual tension between the two of them is OFF THE CHARTS!!

As always, the plot, writing, pace, and everything in between was well done. Another new favorite from an incredibly talented author. Highly recommended!

Richard Armitage and Grace Grant’s performances are flawless. The narration is so amazing! I love the way they brought these characters to life.


Wanderlust – Lauren Blakely


The first time I met him, his sexy British accent almost talked me into giving him my number on the spot. The second time, he nearly charmed the panties off me with his wit. Then I learned he’s the key to success in my new job in Paris. The man who tempts me into fling-worthy dirty daydreams has turned out to be my personal translator, and his accent is the hottest thing I’ve ever heard.
My mantra is simple — Don’t mix business with pleasure. I do my best to resist him as he teaches me how to converse with my co-workers, navigate the metro and order the perfect bottle of wine at dinner. But I also figure out how to tell the charming and clever man what I most want to say — that I want him to take me back to his flat — tonight.
Except there’s a catch…

One more assignment before I take off on my big adventure…

And it involves the toughest work ever — resisting the fetching American woman I spend all my days with. But you know what they say about best intentions. Soon, we’re spending our nights tangled together, and I don’t want to let her go. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and before we know it I’ll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.

What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing…unless one of you is leaving.
