• Pro: We were in Paris! I thought Paris was a really beautiful city, and it's always nice taking a trip there via a book.
• Pro: Charlotte and Anthony make a few appearance. I didn't realize that Rider was going to connect this book to Kiss Me in New York, but I was so happy to get a little bit of an update on those two.
• Pro: I wasn't totally sold on Jean-Luc, but I did buy into him a lot more, when he let down his armor and we got to see HIM a little more.
• Pro: This romantic tour was not all it was cracked up to be. I really wanted Serena to accomplish what she set out for, but I also wanted her to find her own way. It was a pretty complicated personal journey for Serena, but she learned a lot and worked through some of her issues, as did Jean Luc. I found I did care about the characters, and that's always important for me.
• Pro/Con: There were some fun scenes between Serena and Jean Luc, and some really sweet and tender ones too. I just wish there had been more, because I feel like we didn't get to spend enough time with just them. The other love interests added to the story and helped clarify some things about Serena and Jean-Luc's, but they also took time away from the central romance.
• Pro: The ending convinced me to give it the extra star. It was fun and cute and all that, but the epilogue really delighted me. You know I like to know more about where things are going, and Rider gave me that, AND I loved the direction she was pointing all the characters in too.
Overall: This was a very sweet, all-in-one-day romance, which was filled with Parisian hijinks, old friends, and quite a few feels.
Well it was a different kind of read for me, it was sort of strange, but a good strange.
I give Kiss Me in Paris 3.5 stars out of 5 in my review book.
Okay, so I know I said that it's a good kind of strange and it is, but there were still some aspects of it that I didn't like. And that is the reason why I gave it a 3.5, but we'll get to that, first the things that I enjoyed!
It's freaking set in Paris one of the cities I'm dying to visit, so even though I know it's fiction I still love the way everything is described and just how Jean-Luc and Serena fall in love without even noticing. I mean Serena was so focused into getting this trip done in one day without any distractions, but as we read in the synopsis those plans don't work out at all.
Jean-Luc shows Serena the Paris his knows and in a way she shows him what he's been missing out on even though he lives in one of the best cities in the world and that is why I liked this story.
Both of them complement each other in levels they don't understand and that is how the best love stories are born.
Even though the story develops in just one day, that one day is enough for both Serena and Jean-Luc to see that what their lives had been missing was each other.
Kiss Me in Paris is a story about love, self-discovery and just an amazing story altogether.
What I didn't like as much of this story and the reason it got 3.5 stars is mostly because at the beginning Serena and Jean-Luc just don't seem to work out and I wasn't too fond of the whole one day to fall in love idea.
But as you can read in this review my views change and I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Kiss Me in Paris is a new location with a new couple all in a 24 hour time period. Rider has a wonderful talent of bringing you into the location where you may or may not have been before: You feel like you are there with the characters and this time we are in Paris! You can just picture everything as you read Serena and Jean-Luc’s story.
I did not connect to these two as much as I did with Charlotte and Anthony. Maybe it is due to the clash of two very different cultures? Yes, they have some fun times and sweet times, and they also bicker! I did not really see their connection form until the end. And then we have the epilogue which I really enjoyed!
I feel like I have been to Paris now with Rider’s writing; I look forward to (hopefully) another in this series. I cannot wait to see where we go next and what couple we meet and what their adventure will be!
Thank you KCP Loft for my ARC copy.
Early on, her mother had to give up the tour to present a conference in London and her sister scheduled a trip with her boyfriend to Madrid.
Then she need to accept the consolation of being received by Jean Luc, a half-French half-American boy that was needing to mount a photographic project and ends up accepting to take Serena in her Romance Tour.
Again everything goes wrong and both will gradually between laughs and fights opening each other hearts and discovering how even so different they can complete each other.
I had read Kiss in New York, the book of Serena's roommate, Charlotte, and I had fallen in love with the dynamic, fun and romantic writing of the book, now in Kiss in Paris again I felt in love with the way the writers put the plot together and end up reveling that the "perfect" couple is just the most imperfect and how it all led to the kiss. I just got annoyed with Jean Luc that in my opinion did nothing to deserve the sweetness of Serena.
