    One of Blakely's most romantic tales!

    **I received an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** If this book did nothing else, it made me want to visit Paris more than I already did! This story, and the setting, were romantic, swoonworthy, and beautiful. Even though I've never visited, the pictures that were painted by the author's words transported me and I felt like I could see them in my mind's eye. Joy Danvers-Lively was ready for a change. She was ready to leave every bit of baggage she had in the States behind and embark on a Parisian adventure where she began a new job and a new life. This bubbly, smart and creative woman is ready to live life to the fullest, but with her limited knowledge of the French language is the one drawback to her plan. Griffin Thomas is a transplant to Paris as well, as he is British, and working for a translation firm. Griffin is working his way through a bucket list of sorts and that means when his last long-term assignment comes to an end, he will be heading off on more adventures around the world. But when his firm asks the handsome, laid back translator to stay on to help a new client, he decides he will do this one last job before jetting off. As Joy and Griffin begin working together, not only do they get along on a professional level, it's clear they are attracted to one another. They develop a friendship and engage in many flirty exchanges, but both want to respect their working relationship and neither is looking for a relationship anyway. But the question is, will they be able to deny the sparks between them that are growing while they explore the City of Love? This is one of my favorite Lauren Blakely books to date. While I love everything she writes, this one was definitely more romantic and I loved how connected the characters were and how they just seemed to "get" one another from very early on in their relationship. I also felt like Joy and Griffin helped each other in ways that were completely unexpected, which I loved as well. I would highly recommend picking up this book and I am so looking forward to the story that Lauren has in store for Joy and Griffin's friends!

    Lauren Blakely is a master.

    Lauren Blakely is a master. All she needs is a pen and paper to set my imagination ablaze. Wanderlust is a bit old time Hollywood with modern day adventure. Joy and Griffin take readers on an escapade fueled by beautiful scenery, sexy banter and a passionate attraction that sets the pages on fire. For Joy a change of scenery lands her in over her head. She came to Paris to find herself and may end up leaving her heart behind. Griffin is every woman's fantasy. The look, accent and attitude are enough to steal your breath, but the way he treats Joy is hard to resist.

    I loved this romantic, & seductive love story!

    I absolutely loved everything about this romance! This fun, witty, sexy love story transformed me into the heart of Paris, and in turn, nestled Joy, Griffin and Paris into my heart as well! Joy is looking for a fresh start from her life in Texas, when she takes a new job in Paris. She is so excited to experience all that the city has to offer. When she meets a sexy Englishman at a bakery on her first day, their banter is fun and sexy. The sparks fly, but the timing isn't right. Unfortunately, Joy discovers this sexy Englishman is her translator for work. Griffin needs this job as a translator to continue his wanderlust and complete his list. But this smart, sexy, American in Paris will turn his world upside down and make him question his purpose. As they navigate their working relationship, they can't stop their witty, flirty banter, while fighting their forbidden desires. Joy and Griffin are great characters and I was cheering for them all through their thrilling, moving, and romantic journey. I loved visiting all the wonderful Parisian areas. Blakely not only brought the famous locations of Paris to life, but she skillfully brought out all the subtle touches, smells, and tastes that will make you fall for the city of love & lights. I loved every minute of this moving, romantic, and seductive love story!

    Disappointing

    I expected a classy, witty female protagonist but she's nothing of the sort. Then, too much bad language ruins every attempt of romanticism. There's too much lust and too little sentiment. Not even Paris is enough to make it up. I'm really disappointed.
