The first time she sees her new neighbor, his sexy smile arouses her curiosity — and her desires. His hard, chiseled muscles and playful invitations are irresistible. Bared before their windows, framed and displayed above the streets of Paris, they embark upon a provocative affair. Their daring game of exhibitionism lures her back for more and more, and she quickly realizes he is the man she has dreamed about. Yet she’s never heard his voice. Never felt his touch. Never thought she’d experience something this exquisite.
Or this bold…
Do you dare?
Following an awkward marriage proposal (which was totally refused!) our heroine moved to Paris to begin a new life. The fact that she speaks very little French is really not an issue as she works mostly from home as a private researcher. Her apartment is small but lovely, she is within walking distance to a wide variety of shops and, the neighborhood is generally very quiet and nice. And then one day, he moved in across the street and life in Paris just became far, far more interesting.
Monsieur Sexy is just that, chiseled and sexy and with a tendency to leave his curtains open. Totally comfortable with his body and not afraid to be seen, Monsieur Sexy is in no way embarrassed the day his neighbor catches him roaming around his room in nothing but his underwear. Though she is initially caught off guard, heroine recovers quickly and indicates from her side of the street and in front of her own open curtains her interest in Monsieur and perhaps seeing more of him. But, turnabout is fair play and heroine understand that she must be willing to give as good as she gets in order to make this strange new “relationship” both fair and balanced. And so, Monsieur Sexy and heroine set the ground rules: no names and no meeting out in the real world. Beyond these two small rules, anything goes.
For weeks and on a very regular basis, heroine and Sexy not only strut their stuff in front of their respective windows but find ways to pleasure themselves and one another too. At times the pleasure is simple and straight forward with one watching the other and at other times it is a bit more inventive and involved with toys coming into play. One particularly interesting and totally sexy addition to the games is the pair of sleek black Louboutins that both heroine and Sexy thoroughly enjoy. On more than one occasion, both heroine and Sexy respond quite favorably to heroine in nothing but her Louboutins. Make no mistake, these sexy encounters are not just enjoyed by heroine and Sexy alone! In fact, the naughty bits are some of the finest moments in this read and most would certainly warrant a re-read 🙂
The Bottom Line: With all the gushiness above, how can I possibly be at just 3½ stars? This is a very good question and one I am prepared to answer so hold on to your hat. In general, I like the idea behind this story, the naughty bits are totally steamy and delectable and, the “relationship” actually does grow but, outside of all this, heroine drives me bat-shit crazy!! She is a woman who admittedly has a tendency to over think everything and in those moments, she shares every single ridiculous thought with you. Additionally, she has a tendency to use somewhat ridiculous words to describe some of the naughty bits. Case in point, she and Sexy share a Jack and Jill session and on occasion, she jills herself off. For me, any time heroine decided to “talk”, I lost interest L In fact, heroine’s voice so put me off that I put the book away for about a week before finally deciding to finish it. In the end, I am glad I finished the read as I really do like Monsieur Sexy, the naughty bits are really very good and, the end was just interesting enough to encourage me to buy the second book in the series.
