Imogene Nix is an author whom I have only recently discovered. So when she put a call out for reviewers for her latest book, A Bar in Paris, I put my hand up. Despite being only new to this game, she accepted my offer and sent me through a copy of her book.

I popped it on the Kindle and promptly got swamped by the beginning of NaNoWriMo. That was until we had a few errands to run and I was stuck sitting in the car with three bored children while my husband was in the shops.

I read 58% in one fell swoop, turning pages as fast as I could. I could claim that it was my way to ignore the whinging coming from the backseat, but it was really because I cared about the main character Davina.

The story moved a little faster than I would have liked. A more languid approach before getting to the meat of things generally suits me better, but with the premise of the book being Davina is looking for a hot and heavy one night stand, it fits with the plot, and my thoughts are not complaints, merely things I want to mention.

Johnathon, our main male character is hot enough and mysterious enough to pique anyone’s interest and Davina has no chance once he walks into the bar.

The sex is vanilla and hot. There is a sweetness underlying the characters and their actions, which suits the book’s genre as an erotic romance. There’s nothing overly kinky here, but that’s okay. Vanilla is a good flavour too.

At only four chapters long, it is a quick read, so be prepared for that.

If you’re looking for a sweet romantic read, with a liberal dash of sex, this is perfect.


Turning 30? All alone? A commitment-free weekend in Paris should help…shouldn’t it?

What does a single woman do when she’s turning thirty? She takes a weekend trip to Paris looking for commitment-free sex. Or that’s what Davina Chandler does, anyway.

Enter Johnathon, a tall, charming Englishman. How can she possibly resist his magnetism and that sexy dimple?

What starts out as a lark quickly becomes so much more, but can one weekend turn into a lifetime? And will a lie of omission bring everything into jeopardy?
