"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 √Čtienne St. Claire: 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?"

- From Goodreads



Anna and the French Kiss was a delight to read. It was an emotionally charged novel with a great set of characters, places and events.

It is a sweet story about true love and friendship, which you won’t be able to put down! The story will draw you in and make you feel part of it. The characters are easily relatable and they will make you smile.
St. Clair is well written, swoon worthy and not one of those “cookie cutter male leads” you find in so many YA novel’s these days.

I never really wanted to go to Paris before, maybe just to see the Louvre, but the Author made me fall in love with Paris and now I’m yearning to go!

Overall a must read and a book that will stay on my shelf forever!

“I mean, really. Who sends their kid to boarding school? It's so Hogwarts. Only mine doesn't have cute boy wizards or magic candy or flying lessons.”

“Girl scouts didn't teach me what to do with emotionally unstable drunk boys.”
