Sydney Bennett had spent her life in pursuit of perfection. She planned, weighed her options and made careful choices based on calculated outcomes. Through all of her efforts, she had come pretty close to perfection, if she didn’t say so herself. She had fled the cold winters in New York for sunny California, found a job that she loved and lived in the same town as her sister, and best friend, Kate. The one area of perfection that had always eluded her was her love life. No matter how hard she tried, she always ended up with a broken heart. After a particularly traumatic breakup, Sydney vowed that she was done with love.
Just as Sydney threw herself into her new plan to forget about men, a handsome Frenchman tossed all of her intentions out the window as he swept her off of her feet. Louis Durand had lived a life filled with excitement and adventure. He was impetuous, intelligent and incredibly charming. So naturally, he scared Sydney half to death. From the moment they met, Louis and Sydney’s romance progressed at warp speed. Sydney did her best not to run, but her deep rooted relationship anxiety threatened to provide an easy exit. When Louis mentioned marriage before Sydney even knew his favorite color, she was more than tempted to reach for her running shoes. Will she be able to put her fears aside to follow her heart? The one thing that Sydney will learn is that sometimes perfection comes with a twist…
This is a definitely a TOP NOTCH CHICK LIT novel! Glynis Astie introduces us to Sydney Bennett. I fell in love with this character. She is 27 years old, working hard, and very close to her sister, Kate. I loved knowing that this story is based on Glynis’ love story with her French husband. Knowing that it really worked out, was super cool!
At the beginning of the book, Sydney is giving up on love because her last boyfriend left with a broken heart. Then she meets, Louis Durand and everything changes. Their romance was coming to life super-fast, and it was so much fun to read about. They are going a little too fast for Sydney’s liking. But, I think their love had a life of its own.
Sydney’s life is going well in all areas but her love life. Will Louis change that?
I cannot wait to read the second book in this series, “French Toast”
