Summary:

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?



My Review:

Wow, where do I start? I’ve had this book since ever, and I’ve heard ENDLESS recommendations and now I’m just banging my head against the wall wondering: Why the Heck did I not read it sooner????

It is one of the most Cute Love stories I have ever read! It was hilarious, moving, and beautiful. I would burst out laughing when I was riding the bus [happened 2 times. I am still mortified] and then I was feeling sorry for Anna and I wanted to cry and I wanted to slap and kiss St. Clair. OooOOoOOOOooOoOoh…St. Claaaaaaair…… *siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh* Me has found a new crush. Seriously, I fell hard for this guy <3

Aside from the swoon-ish guy, Anna and The French Kiss is just beautiful. Beautiful setting, beautiful story, but most of all, beautiful characters, Anna was so relatable, Rashmi, Mer, Josh, St. Clair, EVERYONE! I really felt a deep connection with all of them and they became friends of my own, I was –still am – pretty sad that the book had to end, still, I’m left with a big smile on my face :)

Wonderful story, amazing characters and the best city in the world. Anna and the French Kiss is a must-read, it guarantees to linger in your heart and to make you want to visit France and get a French Kiss ;)
