Chaperoning Paris is the story of Gigi Dumont and Sean Collins, former high school sweethearts. Both Gigi and Sean are back at home, as next door neighbors due to life's curve balls. It is a shock to both of them, seeing one another again and under such odd circumstances. Sean has just bought the school where he was fired because his cancer would increase insurance premiums and Gigi is the French teacher leading an international competition in Paris that is on the chopping block. Sean gets to decide her fate, but will he base it on the Gigi of today or the one who broke his teenage heart? Victoria Pinder does a great job of painting the trip to Paris and the wide-eyed stares of the students. Their excitement was as clear as the tension between Gigi and Sean all week.

Although Sean and Gigi had a young romance, their story was more than a basic misunderstanding in their past. Between her scheming mom and her inability to stand up for herself, their teen love didn't stand a chance, nor did Gigi's wishes of a fairytale ending. In Chaperoning Paris you have two people who both want the same thing, happiness, yet one of them doesn't believe herself worthy of it. Victoria Pinder has written a wonderful and emotional story of forgiveness and second chances. The tension and love and chemistry is still there and quite visible for even the French students to witness, but it is the students who often stole the scenes. Whether it was the shy Erika or the outspoken Queen Bee Kendra, they were funny, precocious and lovable.

From the Author

This book was the book of my heart. I intended to create a family of brothers, but every family has issues. With cancer so rampant in my family and my uncle's death a few years back, I wanted to focus on more people like my Grandma, survivors.
Now for Gigi. I heard in romance the two topics never discussed online are politics and religion. I generally follow these rules, but there are some social issues like 'abortion' that are buzz words for both. Many authors say that they could never write a character who had an abortion in the past. I've never experienced this first hand, but people I know have. So the question swirled in my mind. Could there be a happy ever after if the heroine had aborted the heros baby? 
This story takes place ten years later. Gigi's mom forced her teenage daughter into the situation. 
Reunion romances are awesome, but for me, I need to know what kept them apart is big. If a conversation can fix everything then the hero and heroine were dumb for not having that convo. And this truly was a book of my heart where I had to be more emotional. Daniel's book is next. His book was fun to write because Kate was fun. But Gigi and Sean both had heart and this book was truly a book that sprung from two complex characters.

Chaperoning Paris is a heartfelt romance full of love, sensuality, suspense, forgiveness, and hope. Author Victoria Pinder brings us the intriguing relationship of Sean and Gigi. Sean and Gigi had been in love their whole lives. They shared everything together from first kiss to first love. Unfortunately, Gigi’s mother drove a chasm between them that had kept them apart since high school. Now Gigi feels unworthy of Sean’s love while Sean wonders if Gigi ever really loved him. Sean has a son now, has survived divorce and cancer and is learning to live life again. He cannot get Gigi out of his head though. Gigi is still in love with Sean but cannot forgive herself for giving into her mother’s demands and aborting their child back in high school. Her mother has ruined her self esteem and doomed her to a cold future. When Sean buys the school he used to work at but was fired when it was learned that he had cancer, he discovers Gigi works there and soon they are on a trip to Paris together leading the students on a chance of a lifetime. This week will force them to face the ghosts of their past and discover if they have a future together.

Pinder skillfully constructs her characters to reveal all their beauty, strengths and flaws. The dialogue is intriguing and captivating as is the scenery. Pinder gently guides the reader through this unforgettable romance arriving at a stunning climax. I highly recommend it!

This was a enchanting book. Loved it from the time I picked it up until I the very last page and than wanted more. Especially Liam and Daniel. Those two I am wondering what is up with Liam.

This is a interesting take on love lost and finding one another again. I found it sad what Gigi's mom did to keep them apart and tear Gigi down to the point of making her feel like she is unworthy of all love and praise. Gigi was once a strong vivacious girl but life and her mom beat her down. When she gets forgiveness and shown love she resists and feels she needs to earn it. She even loves Sean but her mom has her so broken that she feels he is better off and happier without her. Sean has other thoughts though and it is so fun to see him go about getting what he wants.

Sean is a kind caring guy who was hardened by tough love. Actually love that was taken away and another who used him. But Gigi tears down these defenses he has built up and he wants her again after all the years apart. Their love never died. They were met to be together.

This book is about there story to come together again. About fighting all the obstacles in front of them both internal and external to finally be with one another. About discovering that forgiveness of others and yourself unburdens and frees you to love fully and unconditionally. Freeing yourself of anger helps to create happiness. The story takes place in Paris and the fun times we see are great. The students and there antics are awesome. her gay best friend a hoot and a half. But the questions surrounding Liam will have you wondering what is up with him and what his story is.

The coming together of Sean and Gigi is beautifully written and will make you aah at their happiness and snort at some of the antics they go through. This is a sweet fun read that is wonderful to curl up with and get lost in the story of two souls meant for each other but lost their way for awhile to finally find each other again.

Victoria PINDER has written a modern day fairy tale, that has a quicker stepmother, a Prince Charming with Knights who help him get the lost princess. Chaperoning Paris is just that set in a modern day scenery.

Gigi Dumont has been running from her past and her one true love Sean Collins, her mother made her do the feel has if she was never good enough and would be never good enough for Sean the gorgeous good looking boy who had loved her all her teenage years. So she run away not explaining herself.

Sean Collins went years wonder for years why? He went through a disastrous marriage, and fighting cancer, but deep in his heart he knew he always loved Gigi his first love the girl next door he me when he was seven.

When the these two have to spend a week in Paris together because Gigi French class is debating there, the city of love bring these two together. Gigi past keeps her from opening up to Sean, but like always he becomes her protector and his patience keeps him holding on.

If you love fairy tales and happy ending you will love this book, there is drama and some scandal and at times you think that these two will never be a couple. This book show us that if we keep living in the past we have no future and we can't move on, if our past is bad you will keep running and will always be alone.

It shows us that we need to forgive ourselves and push past negativity. We all feel worthless at times but if we dwell on it we only dig ourselves deeper.

I gave this book 4 1/2 stars. It was a sweet love story and Victoria Prinder has written a wonderful book about love.

I got copy of Chaperoning Paris in exchange for an honest review for the blog tour I am hosting.

Lets starts of with me saying that the writing style took me by surprise. So it took me a couple of pages to get used to it. But around Chapter three I didn't care anymore, the had caught me and I was his.

"If such a man is a regret, forgiveness will be heavenly"

Chaperoning Paris is told out of the two main Characters view Gigi and Sean.

"one cannot fall in love if we don't allow ourselves."

Now Gigi and Sean grew up together. They were best friends than high school sweet hearts. But something happened and Gigi's mom forced her to doing something that will tear her and Sean apart. Gigi can't face the life she is in anymore and run away.

"I love you even more than I did when i was a girl"

Sean heartbroken and surviving numerous obstacles runs into Gigi unexpectedly. His life has changed so much and he isn't the seventeen year bold who's heart got broken all those years ago.

"she's nervous to be this happy. Ignore her for an hour"

A Random chance and event to Paris rekindle hold feelings that has once been buried. Gigi fights to with her own demons and believing she is not good enough for Sean, that she doesn't deserve his love.

"my Gigi has the history of taking off on me and I can't keep losing you."

Chaperoning Paris is a down to earth real Happily ever after love story.

I give it 4 wishful stars.

If you believe in fairy tales and the Cinderella get her prince charming than you should read Chaperoning Paris
