Alone in Paris
Release Date: April 1, 2017
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Taylor Clay's family isn't exactly perfect. They may look the part with the nice, big house and her dad's fancy job, but that's what's tearing them apart. That, and her dad's sudden recurring drinking problem. Though her family is close to falling apart, she never wished for something like this to happen. She never wished for her father to drive off a bridge. Especially not while they were on vacation; especially not when her and her mom were in the car with him at the time.
She's devastated after the fact. And it isn't helping that the papers are gossiping about how the pristine lawyer could have driven off the bridge on purpose. And just when she thinks nothing could possibly make things worse, she realizes she's left alone with no relatives to care for her. So she's alone. Her parents are dead. And she's stuck in the country her family was visiting for their vacation. She's alone in Paris.
Then Nathan walks into the picture. Funny, snarky, persistent, and sometimes, just flat out rude, he annoys Taylor to no end. He won't leave her alone, but Taylor doesn't know whether or not she should push him away.
I really enjoyed this story, It thought it was paced nicely, but at times was really slow. When looking at the cover solely, it looks like it will be this cute, fluffy YA contemporary romance story, which it is, but it is so much more than that. It focuses alot on the tragedy at the beginning and how that affects Taylor, more than I was honestly expecting, which was nice. This book is an emotional roller coaster. You'll experinence a range of emotions from reading this book.
The romance in this book was great for the tone of the story, and it was an insta-love, which means it took time to develop and become what it was. I really loved Nathan, and what he wanted to do for Taylor because you could see that there was more than just an attraction between them.
I highly recommend reading this book if you are looking for something more than just a light contemporary romance, because this book was so much more.
