[Book Review] Paris Love Match by Nigel Blackwell

Paris Love Match
Paris Love Match
Nigel Blackwell
Piers Chapman had seen Paris,
In pictures, 
In movies, 
In books.
What he hadn't seen was the mobster.
Or the dictator.
Or the trained killers.
Or the diamonds they were chasing.
But it was Paris,
The city of light,
The city of love.
And a girl had already stolen his heart.
What could possibly go wrong?

Getting a taxi in Paris can be hell. Piers Chapman expected a boring business trip to Paris. What he didn't expect was to fight over a cab with a beautiful girl. After a bad meeting, Sidney Roux just wanted to hail a cab, go home, and have a glass of wine. She didn't expect to fight over a cab with some pompous British tourist. Neither of them expected another man to jump in their cab. Or to be involved in a gun fight. Or a car chase through the streets of Paris. Or for the man to die. But they're thrust together when the mob demands they return what the dead man stole. Will Piers and Sidney work together? Will they find what he had stolen? Will they stay alive? And will they do the last thing they expected? Will they fall in love?


Overall score: 4.5 Stars

This has to be one of the most exciting books that I have read in awhile and I absolutely loved it! From the moment I started reading this book, it was an absolute craziness!! Piers is your average guy who works and pretty much has nothing else planned in life because he's just "average". But that all changes when he gets in a taxi and sees a girl - no, a beautiful angel that simply said: "Get the fuck out, this is my taxi". Next thing they know, they are being shot at and have to find a famous painting that has been stolen before the trained killers might roast them on a warm Parisian night.

Gif explains it all. BADASS. I loved the dorky Piers and confident Sidney, even if she was a little brat at times. I really appriciate that author put more thought into the book so that their adventure wasn't tacky and seemed genuine. Their chemistry and details of this book was incredible! A lot of times I get confused on what's going on because of all the action but Paris Love Match was right on spot with all the moves and description. BRAVO!!
