Ill prepared for an impromptu trip to Paris, Lily’s missing the glory of the City of Lights because her nose is stuck in travel and translation books. Until she runs, literally, into a gorgeous restaurateur named Michael…and meets his sexy business partner, Louie.
Both men are interested in showing her the sights—and a thing or two between the sheets. Her trip turns into an erotically stirring, albeit brief, affair with two sensual and attentive men. But only one will steal her heart.

When a trip abroad turns into a trip to heaven, who’s complaining?

Lily has finally taken a longed for break after freeing herself from heart-wrenching family commitments and has journeyed to Paris. Ooh, la, la! She’s planning to sight-see and she wants to sample fine food, fine wine, the culture and enjoy all that the French capital has to offer. So when she meets Michael and immediately hits it off with the sexy Frenchman, she decides to throw caution to the wind and treat herself and her body to a bit of hot, naked and sweaty time with him! But lust without love can leave a girl feeling dry. That’s okay–Michael is keen to keep her wet! Add in his suave friend Louis and Lily finds herself holding a one way ticket to paradise.

When in Paris is a nice easy read. It’s a little slow to start with, lots of preamble about Paris and details about the food they’re eating etc. But I’ve been there many times and felt it did capture the essence of this beautiful city. Though what I was really interested in was the couple and their interaction. Michael is hot and certainly very sweet with Lily. Lily herself is nice, I could relate to her and was invested in her finding satisfaction between the sheets with Michael.

The story really heats up near the end with the addition of an extra guy. The author worked this in well to be a seriously hot ménage scene without it interfering with the romance between the two lead characters. I liked Louis (as did Lily!) but could understand that he was all about the fun and enjoying the female form, he wasn’t for commitment. I really liked Michael’s flirt with jealousy, it made him very real.

All in all a good read if you don’t mind the basic story line padded out with extra details. It has great characters and well-written erotic scenes and what’s not to adore about Paris?
