Seductive. Heartwarming. Passionate.

MJ is at it again! She's cooking up another steamy romance for your reading pleasure.

Luc Chevalier is a satisfied man – or so he thinks. His businesses are thriving, he has all the excitement, money and beautiful women any man could want. He dines at the best restaurants and stays at the most luxurious hotels as he makes his way around the globe. So why does he suddenly find himself so restless?

Megan Sullivan is a single mom with a rather ordinary life. She is comfortable with things just the way they are. She has a six-year-old son, Elliott, a cozy house in Boulder, Colorado, and a photography business to put food on the table. Her ex lives hours away in Florida, providing enough space for him to feed his drug addiction without exposing Elliott to his father's illness. Megan is on her own and she intends to keep it that way.

Megan is convinced by her best friend to take a trip to Paris for a few days. Little does she know she is about to be thrust into the arms of Luc Chevalier, the sexiest man to ever set foot on the Eiffel Tower. They agree to one night together and no more. In those few short hours he manages to draw out the passionate woman that Megan has carefully hidden way for years. Once she has a taste of what she's been missing, she finds it almost impossible to go back to her life as it was.

Will two people who don't believe in happily-ever-after manage to put aside their doubts and find their forever?
Join Luc as he discovers that everything he never wanted is the only thing he will ever need.

After meeting Luc in Break in Two, I was really curious to know this man better. With a rough childhood now Luc is a rich and successful man that has all the women he wants. He thinks he isn't meant to settle down and have a family. Until Megan, during a trip to Paris, falls straight into his lap in his club.

“Somehow Megan had stripped him of his self-control and made him question everything he thought he knew with just her smile, the touch of her hand, her laugh, her kiss. He had never known such fierce and complete love before, and he knew without a doubt that this was the real thing. She made him happy and filled him up in ways he hadn't known were possible.”

Megan is a single mom. Her marriage ended badly as her husband was a pain killers and alchol addicted. She starts a new life with her son Elliot and the help of her sweet mother Helen. Her experience has made her insecure and wary about men and relationships.

“For so many years, she had fought to keep her feelings in check, at a distance, even. Within twenty-four hours, Luc had managed to cause those walls she had built around her heart to crumble into dust. She felt like she had been cut wide open, exposed to him, and she couldn't have that. It simply wouldn't do for her to be in love. Period.”

The sudden attraction between Magan and Luc is explosive. What started as a one nigth stand becomes something more than great sex, but they are so stubborn and deny their feelings for each other. Only an unexpected surprise is forcing them to come to terms with their relationship.

“You know, Megan, sometimes we have to take a chance on something that isn't logical but feels right. Evrything about being with you fells right to me.”

This book is full of emotions. I cried and I laughed. There are all the things I love in a book: love, friendship, family, second chances, and an hot man and steamy sex.

Luc is mature man, handsome, rich, he exudes power. He has the charm of the typical frenchman and he's so romantic. I'd have loved to be Megan at that dinner on the boat, in Paris, on the Seine River, or on top of the Eiffel Tower, with Luc.

I loved Megan chatacter because she's strong, focused on her family and she's really a great mom. But she's also vulnerable and hardheaded.

I liked also the minor characters. Helen, Megan's mother so sweet and wise. Harper, Megan's best friend, brilliant and protective.

Harper really got my attention. Will the next book about her? I hope so.

This book can be read as a standalone.
