Wanderlust is a contemporary romance novel by Lauren Blakely. This book is a standalone novel that is not part of a series that I absolutely loved.
A charming British hero, the woman who tempts him, and a hands-off arrangement that’s oh-so-hard to maintain.
My bags are packed and I’m ready to go. All I have to do is board a plane, and I’ll be on my way to fulfilling a promise I made long ago. Bonus points — my last week in Paris looks to be even better when I meet a gorgeous, clever American woman and make plans to take her back to my flat that night.
But before we can get together for what would surely be a fantastic final fling, my boss hits me with a double whammy. My previous client didn’t pay, so there’s no trip, and the new client I now desperately need is none other than the tempting American I’m about to take home.
Have I mentioned this timing bloody sucks?
This is one of those books you don’t quite expect to be as good as it is. Something about the box cover, I think, gave me the wrong impression. I, however, was pleasantly surprised.
Of course, considering I listened to this one as an audiobook made it even better, especially listening to that hot British accent.
While I thoroughly enjoyed this book and do absolutely recommend anyone looking for a good workplace-type romance, I will say that months later, I couldn’t remember a single thing about the book, and that’s why I didn’t give it a higher score than I did.
It’s a good read, don’t get me wrong. It’s just not so spectacular that months or even weeks later, you’ll remember much about it. Which I guess for some can be a good thing because one day, when you get bored, you can always pick it up again and re-read it.
