Serena has just flown all the way to Paris for a special pre-Christmas weekend with her sister, Lara. They plan to retrace the steps of their parents’ long-ago honeymoon in Paris, and create a scrapbook for their bereaved mother to remember it by.
It’s supposed to be serious sister bonding…until Lara takes off with her boyfriend instead.
Jean-Luc is Serena’s Plan B, a friend of a friend of Lara’s, who has some space in a place where Serena can stay. Just like his latest relationship, his photography final has been an epic fail. He has one night to retake all his pictures if he is to stay in school.
Jean-Luc can’t stand Serena’s loud voice or her bright orange sneakers.
Serena can’t stand his haughty manners or the way his camera is always in her face.
Together, though, they set out into a cold night that will warm their hearts, creating unforgettable photos and fresh romantic sparks in the City of Lights.

Review of Kiss Me in Paris
Review (4.5 Stars): Kiss Me in Paris was a delightfully entertaining tale about two characters that found love when they needed it the most. Serena had traveled all the way to Paris to spend quality bonding time with her sister, recreating her parents’ Paris honeymoon because discovers that her sister will be traveling to Madrid with her new boyfriend instead. With nowhere else to go, Serena accepts the offer to spend the night with a friend of Lara’s boyfriend who just happens to have a spare room. This starts a relationship that neither of them could have ever imagined.
I loved Serena and Jean-Luc together and even though they seemed like opposites, they just fit together. They brought out the best and the worst in each other and sometimes the best experiences are the ones that happen when you least expect it. Having Paris as the backdrop to this sweet story was absolutely perfect and I can’t wait to take my own trip to the beautiful City of Lights. Kiss Me in Paris was a sweet tender-hearted romance and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Rider puts out next.
