Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home. As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?
I really don't know how to review this book, while I loved every minute of it I had major problems with St Clair.
I love the setting, I love France as a whole1 However I've never been to Paris and I can just imagine that everything I feel when I go to France must be magnified when yo actually go to Paris. I mainly go to France for cheap alcohol if I'm being honest, the wine is amazing for such a cheap price! Although I love the coast, mainly Normandy, there are some amazing places in France that don't include Paris. Anyway onto the story, I loved the premise, don't be put off by the cover I know I was, though chessey the story actually isn't. The setting is perfect and the story is amazing. It's not your typical romantic story.
I think that I loved the story most because I didn't like St Clair, I kinda hated him at certain times, the way he treated Anna was disgusting to be honest, however the author makes you like him even if you have these thoughts in your head.
The way the story flows is amazing, I loved every moment of reading this. The author really does know how to write and she does an amazing job at it. It was a simple novel to read however it wasn't boring or something that you wanted to put down. I know that I am abit late to the bandwagon but I absoultly loved the story and all the characters, they all played a part in the book and the book wouldn't have worked without them.
To me you can not ask for a better novel than this, it is entertaining yet infuriating at the same time. Etienne St Clair was not the perfect person that everyone seems to make out he is, yet because he is not perfect totally makes up the story and makes you think about what you would do in Anne's position.
Overall I would recommend the book to everyone!
