This book is rather different to any other book I've read. There are two main characters among other minor characters. But we never get to know the names of the main characters.

One woman is a project manager for a large company. The other woman is a high class prostitute who caters solely for women.

The two women meet quite by accident and after a misunderstanding and hot sex, the prostitute decides that she won't charge the project manager for the sex they had.

As the story progresses we see the struggle both women have in coming to terms with falling in love.

The project manager can't bear to think of the prostitute working. She has always had a jealous streak in her. The prostitute is hiding secrets from her past and has other issues also. She won't allow herself to fall in love.

The two women go back and forth between being together and taking time out apart due to the issues between them.

When the prostitute is badly assaulted, she turns to the project manager for help. The project manager drives them to Paris to an apartment the prostitute owns there. This appears to be the turning point in their getting to know one another properly. It is a safe place for both of them. But both women are still pulling away from love. Will the project manager ever be able to accept the prostitute as she is and her job? Will the prostitute put the past behind her and allow herself to fall in love? Will she reveal her secrets to the project manager?

I found this book rather strange to begin with. It is told entirely from the point of view of the project manager. The fact that the two main characters are nameless, bothered me at first. I like to know all there is to know about the characters I'm reading about.

Taxi To Paris may be odd because of how the two characters meet and all the non-romantic aspects to their first encounter, yet it becomes a very endearing, even beautiful, odd as the novel moves slowly (and it does move slowly, though 'good' slowly) from something pedestrian to something special.

There's a lot of conflict, but it's not the standard Harlequin kind of contention (where two people act out their dislike because they secretly have feelings for each other). Instead, it's an honest one, given their circumstances and how difficult it is for both women to trust.

It's raw and uncomfortable at times, but oh most definitely a worthwhile read. The fact that both women remain nameless throughout the tale somehow gives Taxi an even more honest, despairing, unflinching feel.

In the early stages, the sadness is all about each woman's isolated feelings and the need to eradicate what she feels for someone she can't be with in any kind of way. The main character, in particular suffers: "If ever a thought of her entered my mind, I hunted it promptly to extinction."

The novel is unique because it takes a premise that is usually one big dangerous cliché ("Pretty Woman") and makes it grim and gritty, far more fragile and not only believable and far from romantic, but somehow necessary to the storyline.

And, as with any two people coming together as a possible couple, there's always conflict: "It seemed that there were never two free minutes in which we could just be together calmly and happily. Every time, something unpredictable happened.
