Sensitive and sexy Frenchman, Luc Du’mont, is living the American dream. He’s spent the last four years at university on an acting scholarship. Now, with graduation behind him, he’s ready to make his big Hollywood splash.
The catch? His debut has to happen before his student visa expires in two months. Otherwise, he’ll be shipped home to France, and all of his acting opportunities will sail with him.
Most important, he’ll lose any chance at winning blond-bombshell Serena Dawson’s heart. As the sister of his roommate, she is strictly off limits. But when Serena approaches Luc for kissing advice, what can Luc do other than pucker up?
The kiss leads to much more than Luc ever imagined. When word gets out about Luc’s lip-locking skills and his unemployment leaves him desperate, Luc finds himself with a new career path: French Kiss for Hire.
Except the only client he wants is the one girl he can’t have.
***I received this eARC as a gift in exchange for an honest review
French Kiss For Hire is a charming new serial by a handful of amazing authors, though who wrote each episode is a mystery that has yet to be revealed. The story itself is quirky and creative, the idea of kissing for money that extends beyond a cutesy charity kissing booth adds a playfulness that runs throughout.
Luc is a sweetheart. A genuinely nice guy who is perceptive and full of insight, he’s charming, gorgeous, and that accent. The French phrases are adorable. Luc is a victim of unrequited love. Moony-eyed and pining, you can’t help but feel for him.
Those kissing scenes though. Get ready to fan yourselves ladies.
Each character has very real issues that are easy to identify with. Insecurities, shyness, not feeling like you’re good enough or like you’re the problem in a failing relationship, unemployment and money issues post-graduation.
The story moves along quickly (SO QUICK) and you’ll want more. Definitely.
Madison, introduced near the end of the story, is intriguing and has so many layers buried beneath her superficial outer core. I loved her. I wanted to know more.
Some secondary characters, like Luc’s roommate Ben, there just wasn’t enough of. What little tidbits there were had me dying to know him.
All that aside, there was a little something missing, that magical quality that makes it more like a fairytale than real life was there, just beneath the surface but didn’t quite make it out.
Guess who wrote episode 1 and enter to win a Signed paperback from the author who wrote episode 1 of French Kiss for Hire (title is author’s choice)
