From #1 NYT bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone romance!

The first time I met him, his sexy British accent almost talked me into giving him my number on the spot. The second time, he nearly charmed the panties off me with his wit. Then I learned he’s the key to success in my new job in Paris. The man who tempts me into fling-worthy dirty daydreams has turned out to be my personal translator, and his accent is the hottest thing I’ve ever heard.

My mantra is simple — Don’t mix business with pleasure.

I do my best to resist him as he teaches me how to converse with my co-workers, navigate the metro and order the perfect bottle of wine at dinner. But I also figure out how to tell the charming and clever man what I most want to say — that I want him to take me back to his flat — tonight.

Except there’s a catch…

***

One more assignment before I take off on my big adventure…

And it involves the toughest work ever — resisting the fetching American woman I spend all my days with. But you know what they say about best intentions. Soon, we’re spending our nights tangled together, and I don’t want to let her go. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and before we know it I’ll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.

What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing…unless one of you is leaving.

Review

I’ve never been to Paris, but I took four years of French in high school as well as four more years in college, and when the lectures and/or assignments turned to Paris and its overwhelming beauty and sensual atmosphere, my wanderlust for seeing it in person dominated my mindset and made me long for a time in my life where I could visit the City of Lights & Love and revel in all that it has to offer.

Unfortunately, that time has not yet occurred, so while I wait to make my dreams a reality, I’m glad that I can dive into a story – one set in one of the most romantic locations on Earth – and experience all that is Paris, France, through the eyes and ears of two fabulous main characters and an author who knows just how to ‘romance’ readers, inviting us to immerse ourselves in the wonder and awe that a city like Paris brings.

What I love most about Griffin and Joy’s story and how Lauren Blakely presents it is that readers take this amazing journey of love and adventure with the hero and heroine; we get to witness the build-up of attraction between them and the path that they take from strangers to workmates to friends and then finally to lovers, and boy is it an entertaining dance Griffin and Joy take as they try to temper that lust due to the nature of their professional relationship, but readers know it’s only a matter of time before they give into what’s been developing from the start and because Blakely does such an amazing job of bringing readers with her as Griffin and Joy’s professional interactions become much more private, readers can almost pinpoint when the characters’ lust-filled feelings no longer remain hidden and not acting on them is no longer an option.

Through Blakely’s descriptive writing, my love affair with Paris flourished and because she constructed such multifaceted characters my love affair with her stories continued, and anytime a writer can make her readers feel like they are part of the cast of characters who surround the hero and heroine and watch their connection grow into something amazing, she’s done an incredible job of bringing not only her characters but the romantic and sensual atmosphere to life in unforgettable ways.

Griffin and Joy’s story is a whirlwind romance of epic proportions, and it’s one I’d gladly take over and over again because not only is it one hell of a love story, it’s also an amazing way to experience a foreign city in all its splendor because Lauren Blakely captures all that Paris is and all that it means to those who live and travel there, and that kind of description cannot happen unless it was experienced firsthand, and I love the fact that Blakely got to experience wanderlust as she brought Griffin and Joy’s book to life because, to me, it makes it that much more powerful, giving Blakely every advantage in order to showcase a love story between two people and for the city that is all about love, romance, and beauty.

Excerpt

GRIFFIN~

There’s one word a woman can utter that gets a man’s blood flowing south instantly.

Okay. That’s not true.

There are about twenty thousand that produce that effect, because when you fancy a woman, nearly anything remotely sexy can drive you crazy with desire for her.

Imagine if she says, I’m going to take off a sock.

Boom. Implied nudity. Hard as a rock.

Perhaps she asks, Do you like strawberries?

Obviously that means she wants me to eat them off her breasts. Flagpole raised.

But then there are some that are so direct, so spot on, she might as well be saying, I’d like you to fuck me hard all night long.

Which, for the record, might possibly be my favorite thing a woman could ever say to me. In fact, I might need to make that my own personal addendum to the bucket list.

At the moment, though, the word is proposition.

As I walk to the restaurant Joy has chosen on Rue de Bac, I keep replaying that deliciously inviting message.

I have a proposition for you.

What could it possibly be but some fantastic arrangement where we shag all night and still get along for work? No strings, no pain, no heartbreak. Sign me up right-the-hell now. That would be fantastic. A promise of orgasm-drenched nights, capped off by an uncomplicated good-bye when I take off for Indonesia in a few more months, finally visiting the places around the world Ethan and I marked on a map when we were younger.

As I round the corner, Christian’s words have the temerity to appear in the forefront of my brain.

Don’t you make the same mistake. You can’t mix business and pleasure. We’re lucky to have the jobs we have.

We are lucky to have our jobs. I don’t disagree with his basic premise, but I doubt Joy’s proposition will jeopardize mine. Besides, I really only need to keep my job for the next two and a half months. That’s all she needs me for at her company, and then I’m gone. Who knows where I’ll end up after I take off on my great adventure? We made so many marks on that map. If I found it, it’d be full of pinholes, I’m sure.

Travel everywhere, Ethan wrote.

He can’t. So I must.

There’s simply no way that Joy’s have hot sex with me every single night starting now will interfere with my bigger plans. I can juggle business and pleasure. I can enjoy the woman, the gig, and the checking off of each item on the bucket list.

When I reach the door of Gabriel’s, a restaurant started by a French-Brazilian cook who’s now become a rock star chef in New York City, I’m more certain than ever that I can have my cake and eat it, too. Preferably off Joy’s soft supple belly.

With that enticing image front and center, I smooth a hand down my black shirt, push open the door, and head inside.

“Wanderlust is the love story to end all! I laughed, cried, dreamed, and hoped. To say I was transfixed by this story is to underrate its power. I am a romantic at heart and this book spoke to me like no other.”
-Gloria Herrera for As You Wish Reviews

 

“Packed with flirty banter, a slow-building, yet scorching hot romance, and characters that are enchanting, voracious, and delightfully unreserved, Wanderlust is a hopelessly romantic, heart-meltingly sweet love story from Lauren Blakely.”
-Yvette for Nose Stuck in a Book

“Loved this! Wanderlust is a delightful and utterly romantic read.”
-ShawnaLovesRomance
