French Kiss by Susan Johnson
Susan Johnson website
Nicole Lesdaux, an L.A. architect, was hired by producer Johnny Patrick to create a tree house for his little girl. They hoped she be done within a month before his little girl birthday. But Nicole can't seem to say no to them, even when she has an unlimited budget when it come to her business. But Johnny is such so hunky and sexy that she couldn't help it not to look. But mixing business with pleasure with Johnny is no no. And she tried to keep her self busy with creating a tree house.
But when Johnny's ex-wife a drug addicted Lisa take their daughter Jordi to Paris, Johnny asked Nicole to accompany him to Paris as his translator while he bring his daughter back home. He was worry that his daughter Jordi will be scared in a place she never been before. Knowing Lisa and her choice of friends, he worries what danger she can bring to their daughter if they're were together. Johnny find himself always having to rescue Lisa, every time she get into trouble.
But one thing lead to another and all of sudden they're flirting into bed. Nicole fell head over heel in love with Johnny and couldn't keep her hand off of him. Their time together was spontaneous, sexy and fun. And now she afraid that when they leave and go home, their love affair end too...
The book said it contemporary romance, but it drawn toward being a little erotic with profanity. But that normally do not bother me at all. I read lots of books like that. I find myself wondering if the romance between Johnny and Nicole were believable or not. While there were flirting and sex I just didn't feel the spark between them that much. But they were smart, sassy, humor and sexual satisfying. I love Johnny interaction relationship with his daughter Jordi. You can tell he is good father and he taken good care of her and love her very much. I did enjoy the book and I thought the characters were likable, charming and fun :)
This is the first book I read by Susan Johnson, so I don't know how erotic, mild or how good her other books are. I probably will try another of her book to see if my reaction any different than this one. I normally give authors a second chance before deciding if I want to go buy their backlist. Sometime three time a charms does work ;)
