Delphine is a writer who's got writer's block. She's had several best sellers but now is worried that she was a one hit wonder, so while at the cafe for a chocolat chaud she goes to the fountain to toss a coin and make a wish. Jean-Paul has started an online marketing branch of his father's company in La Rochelle. He's under pressure to live up to his father's name, and when he finds an old coin by the fountain he too makes a wish. Delphine and Jean-Paul meet when the coins they toss into the fountain collide. What are the odds of that happening?
Delphine and Jean-Paul make a cute couple. Over the course of several weeks they spend time together at the cafe, walking around the market, and going to different sights in La Rochelle. She works on her new book idea and he updates her author website. There's a funny moment involving a text message mix-up and a heart touching scene towards the end of the book that made me fall more in love with Jean-Paul, who is a total gentleman.
I liked how their friendship naturally progressed to deeper feelings and how they could talk to each other about anything. I especially liked how the author explained what writers go through to turn their thoughts and ideas into books--meeting with their editor, the timeline, etc.
This is a great quick read (about 154 pages) for an afternoon/evening. It's a clean romance with a few kisses near the end.
Another great novella in the Destined for Love: Europe series and one you can gobble up in one sitting. I loved the writing, especially with the aspects in the story about writing a book. I love the passion that Delphine had once she had an idea and all the creative juices started flowing. It was fun to see that side of author creativity. Her author friends and editor added a fun zest to the story, even though they didn't have too much page time.
Jean-Paul, ooh-la-la! Ok it's set it France, they're French characters and there's some fun phrases throughout that add a great French flair to the book, so I couldn't resist adding one here too! ;-D He was a great counterpart for Delphine! I loved their geekiness and the chemistry...ooh-la-la! <333
Seriously their chemistry was so fun! Danyelle Ferguson can write some great romantic scenes that are sweet and clean but the tension is very palpable. Every time they're about to kiss...well I'll let you read to figure that one out. :-)
There's some angst and some struggles that both characters are trying to work through but nothing too heavy. Just a sweet and fun read all together. The story flowed smoothly and I enjoyed reading from both Delphine and Jean-Paul's POV. I'm definitely ready to go sit at an outdoor cafe, drinking a tasty chocolate drink, enjoying the view of the fountain and making sure I have my dashing ooh-la-la hubby and a bag of coins we can experiment with! Can't wait!!! Ohhh, I can't forget to bring the dog.
Content: Clean. Lots of kissing. Hee Hee not quite what you're thinking though. Think French and completely platonic. If you're thinking about reading the series or already are, I think you'll have fun with this lighthearted contemporary clean romance.
