New Release Review: Lost in France by Jani Kay
This was an interesting story, Rebecca starts the story by moving away from home for eight months to escape her boyfriend Julian. It’s not clear for a great deal of the book why, having been with him for so long, she feels the need to escape, especially when she seems to love him so much, but it does come out in the story and I totally agree with her reasoning, she’s making some tough decisions.
Before she has landed in Paris she has had a sexual encounter on the plain with sexy french bachelor Alain. He pretty much takes over her life as soon as they land and she falls in love, or perhaps a better word would be lust, with him. Turns out he’s heir to a wine estate and rich as anything, tired of being an eligible bachelor he wants to settle down with Rebecca but he has obligations to his family estate and title that mean he has to marry someone French.
Enter the new boss, Maxwell, who’s married to a super thin beautiful model. He obviously has strong feelings for Elizabeth, but she refuses to get involved with a married man. In fact at the start of the book she thinks she hates him.
As dashing and exotic as Alain is part of me wants her to find a way to be with Maxwell. Alain is insanely jealous, very controlling and will never be allowed to marry her. There’s just the small matter of Maxwell’s wife to figure out. There has to be a story in there somewhere.
I wouldn’t say the book ends on a cliffhanger, it was an unexpected ending, and it leaves a lot of questions to be answered, opening the way for the second book, but it did end a part of the story.
I like Rebecca, despite how quickly she entered into the relationship with Alain I didn’t feel she was loose, she actually came across as someone who thought deeply before committing to a relationship, I think she is being asked to make decisions she’s not ready to make at a time when she is still very vulnerable.
I’ll definitely be adding future books to my To Be Read list, I want to know what happens next in her journey.
