When Tucker Branch, playboy heir to Branch Bolt and Screw, screws and bolts a week before their wedding, Mia Devine wants nothing more than to crawl under her newly monogrammed sheets and plan a funeral for her dignity. But her friends convince her that bitter tastes better when it’s drowned in Bordeaux, so Mia grits her teeth and packs her bags, determined to make the best of her luxurious Paris honeymoon—alone.

She never planned on meeting Lucas Fournier.

The easygoing bartender’s scruffy good looks and less-than-sympathetic ear annoy her at first, but when she takes him up on his offer to show her around the city, she discovers that the romance of Paris isn’t just a myth.

Nor is the simultaneous O.

The last thing Mia needs is another doomed love affair, but since she only has a week, she figures she might as well enjoy la vie en O with Lucas while she can. But each day—and night—with Lucas is better than the last, and suddenly her heart is telling her this is more than a rebound fling.

Is it just the seduction of Paris…or could this be the real thing?

My Thoughts

I absolutely, positively ADORED Frenched by Melanie Harlow. This will be a book that I hold close to my heart and never let it go. It was the PERFECT read for me in every way. It was OH SO ROMANTIC and creatively sexy, I just couldn’t get enough! Melanie Harlow’s writing style just blew me away. It’s so smart, so creative, and so enjoyable. The perfect contemporary read for the avid romance reader in you, FRENCHED will take you on a fantastic journey to a wonderful, gorgeous city where anything could happen. 

Mia Devine was a fantastic female lead who was so relatable to me in pretty much every way possible. I loved her attitude, I loved her strength, and I loved her passion. I would like to say I could go to Paris on my own and forget my life for a while. Sounds like a dream right? I’m not sure I’m strong enough to do that. But reading FRENCHED showed me that the possibility is out there. 

Oh Lucas, you swoon-worthy man you! I don’t know what it is about this charming gentleman, but I want more! He is not your regular possessive, strong, alpha-male you usually read about in romance novels, which makes his ABSOLUTELY PERFECT in my book. I need something fresh, something new, something unique, and with these two characters, you get that and so much more! 

If you want an escape from reality, look no further! Ms. Harlow’s writing style is so descriptive and so genuine, you feel like you are wandering the streets of Paris with Mia and Lucas, basking in their romance, whilst checking out the Eiffel Tower and sipping on your espresso. You can’t get a better fun and exciting romance! Ms. Harlow you are my hero! Thank you so much for bringing us such wonderful characters and for helping us escape reality, if only for a while.

About Melanie Harlow

Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she’s not writing or reading, she gets her kicks from TV series like VEEP, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Homeland. She occasionally runs three miles, but only so she can have more gin and steak.

Melanie is the author of the HAPPY CRAZY LOVE series, the FRENCHED series, and the sexy historical SPEAK EASY duet, set in the 1920s. She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and pet rabbit.
