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 an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
French Kiss for Hire is an intriguing New Adult serial. The novella is a fast read, culminating in a cliff-hanger.
I enjoyed Luc Du’mont’s story. Most books I read are from a female point of view. It’s always refreshing to read a romance from the male perspective.
Luc Du’mont is the perfect friend. He listens to a girl’s problem. She can tell him anything. And, apparently, you can ask him to do anything. It doesn’t hurt that he’s hot (described as a Channing Tatum look-alike) and kisses like magic. Wow!
French Kiss is not your typical romance story. The majority of this tale is devoted to Luc, a struggling actor, and his emotions. He is a caring guy who’s afraid of failure. Can you blame him? He chose to live in Chicago and pursue his dream. Most actors, seeking the fame he desires, would have moved to Los Angeles or New York. His struggle is real and so is the pain he’s dealing with.
I liked his roommate, Ben. He was the good, supportive friend everyone needs. When you live thousands of miles away from home, across an ocean, you need a strong friend. Ben is the brains of the operation and the source of income for the two guys.
The writing was well-done and the characters well-developed. I appreciated the story line and how well it flowed.
This serial comes with a unique twist. Six well-known authors (Lizzy Ford, Amanda Lance, Morgan Wylie, Nikki Jefford, Nana Malone, and Amanda Askel) teamed up to write Luc’s story. Readers have to guess which author wrote which episode. French Kiss for Hire is a first read, for me, of any of these authors. I’d be hard pressed to guess which author wrote this episode. I highly recommend reading this novella—it’s a fun story with interesting characters. If you think you know the answer, there’s a contest associated with it.
