Review of Wanderlust

Wanderlust is a contemporary romance novel by Lauren Blakely. This book is a standalone novel that is not part of a series.


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. 🙂
