Sleeping With Paris By Juliette Sobanet

     Charlotte Summer is about to live her dream; marry a wonderful man who loves her, live in Paris and study at Sorbonne University. 
     Two days before their big move to Paris, Charlotte finds out her fiancé has been cheating on her. Upset and heartbroken, she goes on to Paris by herself. This isn’t the first man to cheat on her and as a result she decides she is never going to be hurt like that again. She is no longer going to get involved in a relationship, she is going to have fun and date like a man! She begins a blog “Sleeping With Paris, a Girls’ Guide to Dating like a Man in the City of Love”
     Her plan is to just have fun, have sex with no commitment, and blog about it along the way. She gets quite a large following, women who can sympathize with her. But can she really do that, date like a man?
     One of the guys she casually dates is her neighbor, Luc. She meets him on her first day there, coming out of the communal shower in the building were she lives. On her blog she calls him Half-Naked French Hottie.  Oh, I fell in love with him!
     I really liked this story! We spend almost a year and a half with Charlotte. She goes through many emotions, makes new friends and discovers something really important, herself.  I was not always happy with her decisions, in fact I found myself yelling at Charlotte, “You’re screwing this up!” (Don’t you love it when you’re so into a story you start talking to the character?) But it is through these mistakes that she finds herself, and love.
     I give this a 5 out of 5 stars.
     On a side note: I really want one of those croissants filled with the melted, dark chocolate! Yum!
