REVIEW: Broken French by Tasha Boyd

OUR REVIEW: I recently read a book that was primarily set in Lisbon and now with Broken French, I am fully on board to make 2022 a year where I travel more...fingers crossed.

Not only was Broken French a love letter to Charleston and France, it was a love letter to the unexpected. This romance was a slow burning delight. Both Josephine and Xavier tried really hard to do the right thing and avoid the incredible chemistry that burned between them but as we all know, it was impossible, though I really loved that they tried really hard to avoid the inevitable, lol. It was the trying and avoidance that let us really get to know them outside of their lust for each other, which made their falling that much sweeter and acceptable when it finally happened, seeing as she was the nanny and he was her boss. It also made the inevitable hurts and angst that much more hurtful and angsty. But then again, those hurts made the HEA the sweetest too. 

If I had one little quibble it's that when we get to the HEA it ends so quickly that I felt like I wanted more page time with all of these characters, which really just goes to show you how enjoyable I found them all and the storyline of Broken French.

Josie thought she was getting a promotion at her architectural firm, but instead her career implodes. She impulsively takes up her roommates' offer to nanny for a little girl on a mega yacht in the South of France. Even though she can't stand boats, this seems like fate giving her an opportunity to lick her wounds in a bucket list paradise while she figures out how to get her life back.

But this little girl she's arrived to look after has a daddy. A widowed, hot, billionaire of a daddy. And if there's anything that Josie needs less than having to be stuck on a yacht, no matter how luxurious, it's an inconvenient and highly-combustible attraction to her new boss. A man who, for all his wealth, is grumpy, conceited, and utterly closed off.

Xavier Pascale is on an emotional island of his own making. It's just him and his daughter and he likes it that way. He works hard, his shareholders are happy, his best friends are his body guard, and the people who work for him. What's wrong with that? But then he meets Josephine Marin. Her arrival in his life is like a deep ocean tremor along a catastrophic emotional fault line. And now... well, now, he's very, very aware of his isolation and his very human need. But he can't be distracted. When he gets distracted terrible things happen.

He should send the nanny home.

He really should.

But what if he just takes what he wants, just this one time ...

This is a standalone, contemporary romance. It includes luscious scenes of sparkling blue ocean, and tantalizing, seductive food, was well as a smoking hot, dirty-talking Frenchman. If traveling scares you, or sexy times scare you, then this book is not for you. But if you're looking for a decadent armchair vacation after being stuck in one place for over a year--a story that will make you laugh, swoon, fan yourself, and cry--then this one is for you!
