~About the Book~
Title: Under My Skin (Bistro La Boheme #2)
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 11
UNDER MY SKIN is the second novel in the addictive BISTRO LA BOHEME series. This delightful Parisian version of “Four Weddings and a Funeral” will entertain you with a gripping story, endearing characters and sizzling romance.
A tall well-dressed guy entered the bistro, dripping rain and hotness. He stopped by the door and surveyed the room searching for someone, his gaze lingering on the females…until it met Jeanne’s. He beamed and walked toward her, his eyes trained on her and full of warmth. Did he know her? Was she supposed to know him?
Feisty bartender Jeanne and geek-turned-hottie Mat embark on an emotional and sensual roller coaster, as their paths cross at an engagement party, a baptism and a wedding… not counting all the other times they “accidentally” run into each other.
And miserably fail to behave with propriety.
But Mat is an ambitious politician running for mayor of his hometown and going steady with an exquisite woman. He knows exactly where he wants to be five years from now.
Falling for Jeanne all over again is definitely NOT part of his plan.
This is the second book of the Boheme series. To be honest I did not read the first book. Why? To be honest I don’t know. I usually am so picky about books in a series having to be read in order, however, Even though I didn’t read the first book I actually liked this book. It made sense even without reading the first book. I feel like even though it is the second in the series it could be a stand alone. It was easy-flowing and fast paced. I could relate to Jeanne in many ways. The love tension between her and Mat is realistic. I love the amazing picture she painted of Paris in my head. Very wonderfully descriptive writing which gives off a clear picture. I kept wondering what would happen, if she would give in or stay strong because she knew it was wrong, or would he lie to get her or would he tell the truth. Although, in all the ways I thought it could go I did not see it ending quite like that. If you are wondering what I’m talking about then go out and get the book, read it and find out for yourself. Yes, I did like it! It would make a good read for anyone wanting a fast paced love story with a trip to Paris France, (not texas, yes there is a Paris, Texas I live here) and Denmark. I received an ARC from the author and I am very thankful to her. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.

~Meet the Author~
I released my first book at the age of six. It had six postcard-size pages stitched together and bound in velvet paper. The book was titled “Eliza and Robert” and had atrocious mistakes in every single word. Some words were written in mirror image. Unintentionally. I remember being immensely proud of my creation.
Turns out there’s a remarkable constancy to my life: decades later, I still love the name Robert and the genre romance. As for my spelling and grammar, they are only marginally better than at age six (thank God for editors!).
I live and work in Paris, France. When not writing, I read romance (what else?) and spend time with my family.
