Title: One Night In Paris
Jacob is nearly forty, and has recently come to the sudden realisation that he’s not doing much with his life. Sure, he’s got his own successful business, but what’s the point in earning lots of money and not doing anything or going anywhere to spend it?
He’s in serious danger of being all work and no play, so he starts to rectify this by organising a twenty four hour layover in Paris en route to a meeting in Dubai. Whilst there, he goes on a bus tour of the city, and there meets Annabelle, a fellow Brit who’s studying in Paris. There’s clearly an attraction between the two of them, so when the gorgeous Annabelle makes an indecent proposal to help Jacob fill his time in Paris, who is he to refuse?

I really enjoy the writing of Lucy Felthouse, even her short stories present characters to love in scenarios that are possible, if not probable for everyone. In this book, we meet Jacob – hard working, no time for pleasure, rarely seen the sights as he has a 24 hour layover in Paris. He’s feeling as if life is passing him by, and has decided to treat himself to a sightseeing bus tour of Paris.
Heading to the upper deck of the tour bus, he meets Annabelle, another Brit who is in Paris studying at the Cordon Bleu. Taking a chance, he asks Annabelle to join him for lunch, under the guise of the two comparing notes on the sights.
The story quickly ramps up into full-on flirtation, and the two are off to Jacob’s hotel for some ‘dessert’. Hot and steamy – their connection is a shock to both of them, neither thinking that more than a one and done will come from the relationship.
A naughty suggestion and a lovely description of the Louvre from views other than the glass pyramid, a few scenes that were heightened by the chance of discovery: the steam never ends with this story. Add to that a sense of ‘we’re not done yet’ and the story is a nice introduction to the city and the couple, all in Felthouse’s smooth writing and interesting additions of geography and landmarks.
A hot, quick read that will fuel your imagination this book can be read as a stand-alone without issue. A book that is meant to, and succeeds at tantalizing your imagination and exciting your desires.
