Paris. City of love, city of romance. The last place you want to go to on a work trip when you’re in the middle of an epic dry spell. But that’s where Poppy is headed, along with her colleague Charlie, who’s shallow and annoying but very, very good-looking. During a white-wine-fuelled Skype session with her friend Alice in LA, Poppy concocts the perfect plan: work by day, and have some no-strings fun with Charlie by night. Of course, it might prove a little more complicated than that, but it’s nothing Poppy can’t handle – or is it?
My opinion: I love a book about Paris. Even better if it’s full of romance.
Poppy has been going through one hell of a dry spell and decides that she is going to end it with some no strings sex. Unfortunately all the men about her are either taken or weird, so she comes to the conclusion that colleague Charlie is her only hope. When they get sent on a work trip together to Paris, she thinks it is the perfect chance to put her plan into action. Only things don’t quite turn out as plannned…
I really enjoyed this short story and flew through it. It was funny, fast paced and full of loving and Kir Royales! I have another book by Nicola Doherty on my TBR pile and will certainly bump it up the queue as I really enjoyed this book and liked the easy to read style of writing. This book is the first in a series of five short stories and I have already preordered the rest of the books!
This short story is a good way to spend an hour and will definitely keep you entertained!
My rating: Four stars
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
