Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads
One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.


This is my first Christina Lauren book and I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I'm a judgey mcjudgerton and assumed their books would be bad and I hate people who judge romances. I'm such a hypocrite!

Now, this is a predictable and super-formulaic romance. Personally, this isn't an issue, but it might bother you.

There's a lot of sex-too much in my opinion. Turning them into closed-door scenes and it would've been better. I have read books before where I want to skim the sex scenes because of this, but this was different. Ansel and Mia use sex to avoid having serious conversations and that actually is a plot point. I can appreciate that.

Mia and Ansel were fun and likable characters. They felt realistic even though they were in such a crazy situation. And Ansel is such a sweet guy which I'm loving right now. And Mia had a nice strong friendship with her two best friends even though it doesn't get a lot of page-time.

I will certainly read another Christina Lauren book. If you have a suggestion let me know.

Thanks for reading!
