Meet The Frenchman. His name is Louis Messette. He’s rich. He’s ruthless. And he’s in for a surprise when he meets American Fleur Smithers. The daughter of his family’s arch enemy -- Marie the Mercenary, the sworn eradicator of crime in Toulon’s ports -- is sexy as sin. And gullible as hell. College grad Fleur Smithers thinks moving to France to spend a year with her newly found biological mother will make her more sophisticated. Only . . . everything about the country emphasizes her inexperience, especially one gorgeous, brooding, international rugby star named Louis Messette. When their first encounter goes wildly awry, Fleur’s determined to avoid the rude Frenchman. But her attraction bests her, and soon she's seduced into world of wanton pleasure by Louis who seems to open up to her in the hub of the glittering C#65533;te d'Azur and the along the soulful Seine in Paris. But even Fleur, who makes it a point to avoid asking tough questions, begins to suspect something is wrong. Should she find out who her Frenchman really is, far more than her heart will be at stake. And Fleur will be forced to face the toughest question of all . . . what is she willing to sacrifice for love?… (mais)

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I love France and all things French, so decided to give it a try. I was a little bit worried that the "crime" part of the title would be more of a focus to the novel than it turned out to be, so I was delighted by that. I found the humor laced through the narrative quite refreshing. It helped me believe in Fleur and Louis as characters and not as props for the numerous explicit sex scenes--yes, I was expecting sex, and lots of it, but it always helps when there are people involved in the scenes that you actually care about. I sort of felt like I was plunged in the middle of the story with little background at first, but it made me want to keep turning pages to find out what the heck was going on! ( )

3.5⭐/3 flames.

I am not a francophile, so this is the only frenchy book I have read (at least where the main setting and characters were France/French). I think I liked it enough to read more frenchy books in the future - assuming the male characters are big handsome broody bastards like Louis. I don't care for the frenchmen that are characterized as effeminate. Once Louis was described as the dark and handsome rugby player, I could not help but envision him as Stuart Reardon. So that certainly helped along with the reading of this book. It may have even prevented Fleur, who was ridiculously and unbelievably naive, from getting on my nerves quite so much. I mean seriously, there is only so much willful blindness I could take.

This book was told in first person from Fleur's POV. The writing was very flowery, which I usually do not like. However it seemed to fit in to this story and made me think of the French as melodramatic and over-the-top. There was some mystery, family drama, relationship drama, slight mob-type activity, and reasonably steamy sex. It was a good read, but I would have liked it to be more detailed I think. We got mainly surface facts without learning anything too deep about any of the characters. I didn't feel like actions were fully explained... particularly the situation where Fleur sent Louis packing. I didnt get it. The book would have also benefited nicely from an epilogue.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )
