Love is…knowing when to say goodbye

22 year old Lady Sarah Cosgrave is a student at the Sorbonne and heiress to millions, but only if she’s engaged by the time she reaches 23. She’s in urgent need of a fake boyfriend to appease her parents – anyone will do as long as he has long vowels and a long pocket. Handsome French brickie.

Pascal de Sauvarin is neither, but as he’s the only man available he’ll have to do. Can their love overcome the demands polite society throws at it or will she be forced to marry rancid Rupert?


I adored this new novel by Jenny O’Brien. I feel her stories are written just for me. I love stories set in Paris: the café culture, stunning architecture and gorgeous countryside. I was drawn to this book by just the title. Jenny soon had me there in the moment eating pastries alongside Sarah in Paris and when we are introduced to Pascal I was mesmerised by his rugged beauty and accent!

Sarah, formerly known as Lady Sarah Cosgrave, had escaped her privileged life in England to study music in Sorbonne. She’d also escaped the media after word had got out that she was a rich heiress to be. Her late Aunt had left a bequest in her will that if Lady Sarah was engaged to be married on her 23rd birthday she would receive 80 million. She’s fended off unwanted advances in the past and had been hurt and humiliated by someone else she had given her heart too easily to.

When Sarah spots the ruggedly handsome French brickie working at the building site opposite her apartment an instant attraction is felt. She spends many spare moments gazing at him. However, she doesn’t know that Pascale, the brickie, has also spotted Sarah and he too feels a pull towards her. There is more to Pascale than meets the eye and Sarah slowly learns to relax with this Frenchman.

This was such a lovely romance that totally swept me away with the storyline. Lots of twists, turns and surprises and as per Jenny’s previous form she took me on an emotional journey. I thoroughly enjoyed this contemporary romance and have no hesitation in recommending it.  5/5*

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book.

I’d like to share one of my favourite quotes from the book:
