The daughter of a renown media mogul, Poppy Koslowski has her life turned upside down overnight when her father is indicted for a massive fraud that leads to the loss of her family’s fortune. In the wake of the scandal, Poppy moves to Paris at the behest of her aunt, the Countess Domel, who, unbeknownst to Poppy, intends to find a wealthy husband for her niece in order to ensure her future. Poppy, however, has her own dreams of finishing school and realizing her goal of becoming an award-winning journalist. When she meets Henri Olin, the passionate and seductive illegitimate son of one of France’s most powerful politicians, his political and social ideology introduces Poppy to a world very different from her own. Yet, Poppy ultimately learns that everything comes at a price, even love. After suffering a devastating loss, Poppy finds herself alone and virtually penniless, and is forced to make her way back to America to piece together the remnants of her life in New York City. There, she rediscovers her passion once again, only to be confronted with yet another life choice, one that will forever shape her destiny.

I love a good easy read and this book falls into this category for me.  It only took me a few days to finish and I found that I could lose myself in it which is something I always look for in an easy read
The story is compelling from Poppy’s privileged background and dramatic fall from grace to her mothers marriage of convenience and not to mention…..lots and lots of sex! 
This story is not for the old school romance lover this book is edgy and raw and not for the faint hearted. There’s less boy meets girl, girl hates boy, boy is a rough diamond and they alllive happily ever after….This is more about the infatuation can’t get enough of each other stage!
I wish there had been more character building of Poppy and Henri before it became all about the sex and found it frustrating that Poppy forgets the first time they slept together as that felt like it could’ve added more to the story but loved how the author weaved in that first night into the rest of the story as she gets flashbacks to the evening 
All in all a good read and definitely one for the beach this summer

Author Bio:
Vivian Winslow was born and raised in Southern California. Before becoming a writer, she made a career out of moving around the world every couple of years thanks to her husband’s job and her incurable wanderlust. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and two elementary school age children, and is grateful to finally have a place to call home for more than two years.
New York is the perfect city to indulge her love of fashion, the arts and especially food. If she’s not at home writing or running around the city with her kids, you’ll most likely find her eating at the newest restaurant in her beloved Lower East Side or having a cocktail at her favorite bar in Alphabet City. That said, she’s still a California girl at heart and would gladly trade in her heels for a pair of flip-flops to catch a sunset on the beach.
