Paris Love Match, by Nigel Blackwell

3.0 out of 5 stars

A suspenseful and thrilling story with a touch of humor and romance…

Paris Love Match follows two strangers, Piers and Sydney, who are accidentally thrown together as targets when a bleeding man being chased by the mob jumps into a cab they have already been fighting over.  The story continues following Piers and Sydney as they work together to not only stay alive but also recover the stolen goods they were wrongfully accused of taking.

Overall this was a very entertaining read.  Nigel’s writing is very easy to follow and before you realize it you’re vested in the book wanting to know what crazy stunt Piers and Sydney are going to pull next.  I enjoyed the characters back and forth banter between each other as well as glimpses into each one’s thoughts.  However, it wasn’t enough for me to fall in love with either one individually or as a couple.  In the end, I thought it was a fun read, just not something that left me wanting to read again and again.  I always enjoy it when I am emotionally connected to the characters but with Paris Love Match it just didn’t happen, which is the main reason it only gets 3 stars.
