This book is a fantastic read; easily transporting the reader to the streets of Paris as we are drawn into the whirlwind love affair of John and Michelle. Warren does an excellent job of bringing the streets of Paris to life, as well as the compelling characters of John and Michelle, who jump off the page and feel complex and real. I was left satisfied and smiling by the novel's end. I highly recommend this enjoyable and engaging novel.
If you are looking for a whirlwind romance, family drama, and a happily ever after then this book is for you! Montmartre Stairs: A Paris Love Story is a tale of love at first sight.
We are swept away right from the beginning of the developing romance between our main characters John and Michelle. I will admit that at first, it all seems too good to be true and somewhat unbelievable but by the end of the book, you are truly rooting for this couple and are so happy for them regardless of the hurdles they face. My favorite character in this book is John. There were so many thing that I enjoyed about him. I loved that he always wanted to be with Michelle, I love how kind he was with her, and I loved his willingness to give up everything just to be with her regardless of what his friends or family may think. I wish John was a real life person because he is basically every girl’s dream guy! The setting of Paris was described so well that it is so easy to get lost in this contemporary romance and escape to Paris for a few hours in your mind.
Michelle was just an OKAY character for me. I do wish we knew more about her as the story is primarily focused on John. I feel as though I know nothing of her save for her disabling condition, love of theatre, and her family dynamics. I didn’t dislike her but I also didn’t necessarily like her, she was just there for me and was more of a supporting character in my eyes versus a main character.
I loved that the author threw in some family drama to keep the book interesting because otherwise I do not think this book would have been a page turner. I was so intrigued to see what John’s parents/friends would do and how they would react to his recent decisions. I feel so sad that John has that type of family that are so vain and only care about wealth but I am glad that he is not like them. I felt myself being angry at how they were treating John and Michelle and you know that the book is good when it makes you feel.
There were some slow parts in between the whole book but the last half was when it got really addicting. Due to this however it made the read a lot longer than it should have been, oh and that ending was not enough I needed more! I wish we could’ve gotten an epilogue or something because I am not satisfied!
For all of the above reasons, I am giving this book a 3 stars which to me means that I liked it but didn’t love it. I would recommend to those whose are looking for a short, cute, romantic read.
John is the son of rich and powerful parents and his life is line to continue this tradition. He's a banker and a lawyer. He's from the states but is living in London and checking out the Paris banking branches. He has a girlfriend he will marry one day. Life is settled and he's moving forward. Then he notices a disabled woman falling down the stairs at the train station and he catches her to stop her from being hurt. When he looks in her eyes, his old life is lost...
The author shared a copy of this book with me for a review (thank you). It has been published and you can grab a copy on Amazon.
This is mainly a story about love but it's also about growing up and making your own decisions. The hardest part was telling his controlling girlfriend that they were through. Soon he has his little sister calling him and berating him. She visits next but it makes no difference.
John has finally found a woman that touches his soul. He loves her smile, her wit, her humor and her positive attitude. He learns what love is and he's willing to give up his old life to have it. He also finds himself changing. He's loosening up and laughing more. He likes Michelle's theater friends and her parents. Now if only he get his parents to adjust to the fact that he's marrying Michelle, all would be good.
I'm a bit too cynical to read this sort of novel without some disbelief. Instant love and no real bumps in his love life? However, it's a pleasant read and took me to France for a few hours so it was worth reading. If you're into romance, this is a book for you.
Montmartre Stairs is a simply beautiful. It is what the description claims it to be, “enchanting and inspiring”; most certainly an epic romance. I’m sure the book will leave you with a good feeling. It portrays the journey of love in a very artistic way. Though the story might seem a bit dramatic at times, it is heart-warming. But to be very frank, I enjoyed the writing more than the plot. The language is poetic. It’s a pretty traditional romance with some predictable twists. But it’s a good book to read on a relaxing holiday. It’s the kind of soulful read everyone requires once in a while. So, I’m going to say, even if you’re not a big fan of romance, give it a try.
