Synopsis: 
THE ROMANTIC TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR that Sylvia Day called “a sexy, sweet treasure of a story. I loved every word.”

When three besties meet three hot guys in Vegas anything can—and does—happen. Book One of the New York Times bestselling Wild Seasons series from the author of the Beautiful Bastard series.

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just...play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
I absolutely loved this story! It was cute, romantic, funny, sexy and centered around Paris. What more could you ask for. Christina Lauren you guys rock!

Mia was a character I really loved. She was shy, but at the same time she always found a way to express herself. I hated what her dad was like to her -- he seriously seemed cold-hearted with how he went about things. I hated what she went through and not being able to follow her dreams anymore. I loved how she finally "grew up" and decided to live her life for herself. Simply stunning character development for her in this book.

Ansel was fantastic. I loved his boldness and use of no filter. He literally just said what he wanted which was refreshing compared to Mia. I loved him from start to finish. He was so boyish and sweet, yet he was able to switch over to manly and dominating without hesitation. I didn't care for his secrets, but I did understand his hesitation of doing so. Ansel was hard working man with so much determination. Loved him.

The romance was freaking insane. It literally went fast, but then slowed down and threw me for a world-wind. I did like how it all came together. Let's just say Vegas was crazy for Ansel and Mia and their "relationship" quickly developed into something more that neither expected. The sex between them was freaking mind-blowing. I loved their sex scenes. I did wish there was a lot more intimacy than sex, but the little intimacy they had together was absolutely profound. I like how their connection grew and how they helped better one another. Even though unconventional and downright crazy, I loved them together.

I can't wait to read the other books in the series. It's definitely a fun, quick read!
