Jojo escapes to her best friend Poppy's guesthouse, Les Coquelicots after a horrible ordeal in the public eye. After something happened on a reality show that was out of her control. Leaving behind her business and family. Les Coquelicots has been a safe haven for Jojo, a place to hide from the world whilst she slowly gets over her humiliation and discovers her Second chance. But just as Jojo is finally getting her confidence back and dealing with her anxieties, Poppy invites Callum O’Connor to help out with her new business venture. However there is one slight problem Callum is a well known celebrity chef and he most certainly will of heard of Jojo! Callum is strikingly handsome, good at his job and doesn't seem to care one bit about Jojo's past!.... Is Callum going to be the one who restores Jojo's faith in humanity and Men or will it all go disastrously wrong! I really warmed to all of the Characters, I loved Jojo's and Poppy's friendship, and watching Jojo grow in confidence and her potential budding Romance with Callum was heart warming to see. But for me the adorable Fur babies stole the book and melted my heart. Anyone who knows me, knows that I adore any book that features fur babies, and there was plenty of cheeky, mischievous, loveable pups! I thoroughly enjoyed reading JoJo’s French Escape it was such an uplifting, heartfelt and fun read. There are also some hot and steamy sexual encounters that will leave you a lil hot under the collar! But it also had a powerful and poignant message about mental health, anxiety, not letting others bring you down, strength and courage and also self love it's ok to need help. There are lots of laughs, smiles and crazy doggie antics which will have you laughing out loud. So if you are looking for a thoroughly entertaining, enjoyable, lighthearted, uplifting Rom Com with the most adorable rescue pups then I highly recommend you picking up a copy of JoJo’s French Escape, you won't be disappointed!

    Favorite Quotes: The only love Aiden knows involves the use of a mirror or a TV camera. "You know if anyone ever gives you any grief we'll set the dogs on them, celebrity chef or not." I look down at the two tiny chihuahuas, one miniature Yorkie and the blind ex-hunting dog who happens to be a total softy. My mouth quirks involuntarily into a smile at the idea of them defending me, though I'm sure they'd all give it a good go. The chihuahuas in particular are utterly fearless.

Who was it said that a life without passion is a slow way to freeze to death? She blinks, her false eyelashes make her look like she’s being attacked by spiders. I really am trying to wish them well but mostly I’m just wishing them well away from me. My Review: Holy smokes, this was not what I was expecting but an engaging and relatable tale nonetheless. The premise had a British reality TV star escaping unwanted notoriety to the south of France after she was “officially disgraced” when her then-boyfriend, a publicity, and fame-obsessed reprobate and scum bucket, leaked a sex tape she was unaware he had created. Oh, and he was also cheating on her with her best friend, ouch. It was no wonder she wanted nothing to do with social media or men in general, much less a well-known TV chef who happened to have escaped to the same French locale. Yet their chemistry overcame their misgivings and – gasp – their connections were so erotic I was gasping like a fish out of water. The writing was easy to follow and predominately the inner musings and observations of JoJo as she navigated her transition from disgraced to empowered with the support of her new friends and heartthrob. I was quite taken with the cleverly chosen quotes used to start each chapter and also the timely and insightful inclusion of The Power of Now, which I confess requiring Googling to accurately recall.

    I will be honest. What I expected was a nice breezy summary read, but this book is far from a cute little love story. JoJo Grant is the victim of a sex tape scandal and for one year she has been keeping a low profile in the French countryside. Even after all this time, she is tormented by the memories left by it, constantly reminded by the English tourists who recognise this former reality TV star. The world is really bleak indeed when everyone presupposes things without any knowledge of what re I will be honest.

The world is really bleak indeed when everyone presupposes things without any knowledge of what really happened.       With the arrival of Callum, some of her previous confidence and passion for life returns, but that journey is hectic indeed. Added to this is the news of her ex-boyfriend and ex-bestie coming to France. With lots of interior monologues, Lorraine Wilson gives us an idea of the trauma she deals with and the inner struggles she faces to return as the familiar happy JoJo. All is not gloomy though. There are a group of canine friends who will amuse you throughout and there is Poppy's wedding to look forward to.       Altogether, this has been a meaningful and enlightening story that will move you to tears in no time. I found myself cheering for JoJo throughout. Way to go, dear girl!

    Wow this is a story with a really powerful message in it. I won't say what it is but I'd like to think women especially everywhere will identify with it, in their own ways. It's also a story featuring some of my favourite ever canines, Pickwick, Treacle, Peanut, Barney, Max and new to the mix Flump. The others fans of Lorraine Wilson will recognise from the previous books in the series, but this can be read as a standalone easily. But Flump is adorable, playful and a kleptomaniac on 4 legs.

Most of my laugh out loud moments with this book have involved either Flump or the other doggies!! Believe it or not the heroine is JoJo and she is human, and her plans to stay hidden in France could be affected by a dashingly handsome incredibly sexy T V Chef who is coming to stay for the summer. As I have come to expect from this author there is sizzling sexual chemistry and incredibly enjoyable sex scenes, within the pages. This is a pure escapist read that I have read on a hot day, in my garden during lockdown. It has taken my mind away from real life, and I couldn't get enough of this story. It's a truly pleasurable reading experience!! Thank you to One More Chapter and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily,

    This was an escapist feel-good read set in France, with an intriguing storyline, interesting characters - I really enjoyed the chemistry between disgraced JoJo and standoffish chef Callum - an emotional pay-off, and of course lots of adorable dogs. Thank you to the author and publisher for the chance to give this one an early read.

This story tells JoJo Grant’s story. She became famous as part of a reality show but infamous, too. I was surprised and disappointed there was no mention of any legal comeback on JoJo’s ex as a result of his antics – he certainly deserved them! Now she’s spent most of a year hiding herself out of the public eye, wearing baggy clothing trying not to draw any attention to herself. She’s also been running the guest house belonging to Poppy and helping plan Poppy’s wedding to the local vet, Leo. There are some absolutely hilarious incidents involving the dogs which share their home, especially after JoJo adopts one that proves to be a mischievous kleptomaniac! When Leo’s friend Callum comes to help organise their barn restaurant, Poppy and Leo try matchmaking but, even though she admires the handsome celebrity chef, she no longer wishes to be in the limelight and resists their mutual attraction. I absolutely loved this book until 49% through when it changes from a slow burn contemporary romance dealing with some very important issues into something bordering on erotica with graphic descriptions of sizzling hot sex scenes which I really hadn’t anticipated being included in this book and which, for me, detracted from the brilliant plot up to that point but you’ve been warned now and so it may not spoil it for you and I know others enjoy reading them so don’t let it put you off! There are some brilliant characters in the story. Poppy is such a caring, kind and supportive friend to JoJo, even if somewhat scatterbrained at times. JoJo’s family are always there for her, even if she’s left them behind when she ran. Now she’s developing her self confidence again and it is great to follow this, though there are times when her insecurities return, especially if she overhears or believes others are commenting about her. Callum is superb at helping JoJo look at events from a different point of view and to support her in facing up to her ex boyfriend and ex best friend – and the dogs come to her rescue, too! There is a powerful message at the end about not letting others label you, choose your own label and be prepared to stand up for yourself despite what others may say. I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

    This is the third book in "A French Escape" series. This is JoJo Grant's story. JoJo has been in hiding from a shameful secret, to the point where she has become a recluse and if she has to go out, she wears baggy clothes hoping not to be recognized. She is kept busy running Poppy's Guesthouse, looking after several cute puppies and planning Poppy's and Leo's wedding. Poppy and Leo want her to move on with her life, and think that Leo's friend Callum, a celebrity chef, would be perfect for her. This is the third book in "A French Escape" series.

She is kept busy running Poppy's Guesthouse, looking after several cute puppies and planning Poppy's and Leo's wedding. Poppy and Leo want her to move on with her life, and think that Leo's friend Callum, a celebrity chef, would be perfect for her. It just so happens that Callum wants to get away from his celebrity life, so Leo invites him to come and stay as well as getting him to help design the menu for the new restaurant they want to open in the barn. Leo is coming off a bad relationship with a woman who was after his celebrity status, so JoJo is not a person he wants to encounter at this point in his life. They both have ideas about what and who the other is, but as they get to know one another, they realize they are both wrong. This book has a really important and powerful message. JoJo has allowed what others think of her force her into hiding. When she does venture out, she hears whispers and comments and slips back into her insecurities. I do not want to ruin the story for you but with some help, she breaks through. Enter Callum, a man who loves to cook, teach people to cook and feed them. He does not enjoy his television shows and is trying to figure out what to do next in his life. He is so caring and supportive. The other characters in the story are lovely, well except for Aiden and Sally, but that was to be expected based on what they did to JoJo. Poppy and Leo have become JoJo's family and support system and she was lucky to have landed with them. The most fun in this story are the dogs. Poppy loves to rescue dogs so she has 4, Callum has 1 and JoJo rescues another. They are a hoot. They are spoiled, pampered and oh so loved. They give back as good as they get, and at one point, come to JoJo's rescue. I have to say I loved the antics that Flump was involved in, but I do not like his name. Overall, I enjoyed this story. I loved learning a bit about the area and if I ever get to France, I will look for these small villages. This story is a romance, and there are some rather descriptive sex scenes, but for me, the main themes are about friendship and not letting others label you, standing up for yourself, be strong, be yourself and write your own story. This book can be read as a standalone, but if you want the full story with all the characters and how they ended up where they are, I suggest you read the series in order. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.

But as JoJo and Callum get to know each other, he cannot understand why she is willing to hide from the truth when he knows what a strong and capable woman she is beneath it all. Can JoJo find it in her to let go of the past and grab a hold of a future that could make her the happiest she has ever been? A stunning setting and a great cast of characters are just some of the wonderful things about this book. JoJo is relatable and as it became clear what happened, I wanted her to find happiness and the strength to be herself. I enjoyed watching JoJo and Callum learn more about each other and there is a delicious tension between them that really made me smile. And we cannot forget about the adorable pups that will make you want to run to your nearest shelter and adopt ( but remember dogs are for life!). JOJO'S FRENCH ESCAPE by Lorraine Wilson is a thoroughly enjoyable story and I look forward to reading more from this author.

    This is a story about Joanne, (nickname: JoJo), who owned a small restaurant and became a reality TV star, until she's shamed by two scandals: 1) finding out her best friend is sleeping with her boyfriend; 2) finding out her boyfriend recorded one of their lovemaking sessions and put it up on the internet for all to see. She's ashamed and scandalized, and public opinion is against her (double standards for men versus women), so she escapes from England to a small town in France, where she's hidi This is a story about Joanne, (nickname: JoJo), who owned a small restaurant and became a reality TV star, until she's shamed by two scandals: 1) finding out her best friend is sleeping with her boyfriend; 2) finding out her boyfriend recorded one of their lovemaking sessions and put it up on the internet for all to see. She's ashamed and scandalized, and public opinion is against her (double standards for men versus women), so she escapes from England to a small town in France, where she's hiding out as a manager/cook for a bed and breakfast hotel. Afraid and fearful, she's hidden herself from the world, instead surrounding herself by her friend Poppy, Poppy's fiance Leo and a menagerie of Poppy's dogs. Then Poppy and Leo decide to turn the barn on the property into a restaurant, and they bring in one of Leo's friends to help with the project --a celebrity TV chef named Cal. This is the last person JoJo wants in her life--a celebrity. She thinks he's probably like her old boyfriend--a good looking man who would seek fame at all costs, regardless of who he hurts in the process. She avoids Cal, especially when she overhears a conversation that he and Leo have, in which Cal says that JoJo is the type of person he is trying to avoid. So, the relationship between JoJo and Cal starts out frigid, but as time goes by and they began sharing the same house (he's staying the in the hotel JoJo manages), they get to know each other better and an attraction forms. Cal helps JoJo overcome some of her shame and start to feel better about herself. But of course, the road to true love is never that easy, is it? I won't go into some of the hurdles they overcome, because I don't want to spoil the story, but I will say that well, maybe there's a happy ending. (smile) I thought the story was a lighthearted read that took me away to sunny Languedoc, France for a while. The author did a nice job describing sunflower fields, quaint old villages and old charming characteristics of small-town France. I enjoyed reading the book until I got about halfway through it. Then, I grew a bit tired of JoJo's introspection. She seemed to be running the same script over and over in her head, without resolving the issues that were troubling her. I know that's what people often do, but reading it for many pages gets tiring. I kept thinking "listen to the people around you, who care about you, and move on. Ignore those who are only trying to hurt you for their own benefit." At times, I wished I could shake her and say "why waste your time and energy? You're only ruining your life while that awful ex-boyfriend and disloyal best friend go on living theirs to the fullest, while you hide away." Anyway, maybe that's just me, because I really don't like to wallow, but want to do things to overcome the problems. So that was frustrating to me. The other issue I had was with the ending. It seemed to end abruptly. Cal and JoJo expressed their feelings to each other, but the author let it drop after that. As a reader, I was left wondering if they would really have the "happily ever after," or would they just be together until the barn restaurant was a success and then Cal moves on? JoJo keeps asking herself that after she and Cal begin a relationship so I expected the author to give us an answer, but it never really happens. Despite these two downfalls, it is a good book and I will recommend it to others. It appears that this is third in the author's series of books in Southern France. Two of them feature a character I really enjoyed in this book--Poppy--so I'll be checking them out. Thank you to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK/One More Chapter for providing me an ARC copy of this book in return for an unbiased opinion.

    It’s been a year since JoJo made national news – infamous for a ‘leaked’ sex tape with her reality-show-star boyfriend, after being summarily dumped, on air, by him with her childhoodul friend. Embarrassed and distraught, she packed a bag and jumped in her car with no real destination in mind, ending up in the Languedoc region of France, working with a new friend and her multiple rescue dogs in her new guesthouse.

Embarrassed and distraught, she packed a bag and jumped in her car with no real destination in mind, ending up in the Languedoc region of France, working with a new friend and her multiple rescue dogs in her new guesthouse. A perfect set-up for JoJo as Poppy is an artist and not particularly connected to the gossip world, and with planning her wedding to Leo, her work and the dogs, she’s got no time to indulge. With JoJo starting to feel a bit more ‘settled’, news comes that her ex and the reality show he works with are coming to her area, and the thought of it is making her anxious. Add to that, Leo’s friend and celebrity chef Callum is coming to stay for a bit as they work on organizing “The Barn” to make a small restaurant focused on the local bounty, and JoJo is worried that Callum’s fame will bring photographers and disrupt her quiet refuge. But Callum will disrupt much more, from an overheard conversation where ‘snap judgments’ were made to the electric connection between them and the hoard of dogs (and trust me – it is a hoard) instant affection for him, there’s much more here to unpack, and most of it is for JoJo to determine. Throughout the story we get to know the real people, meet the dogs, and see just how much the connection and conversations between JoJo and Callum work on her confidence, and their electricity fairly sparks between them. With a tendency to overthink for England and working herself into a fine mess, there’s plenty of trust questioned, as JoJo is trying to find her new normal, and Callum is trying to discover his next steps. With some help from Poppy’s friends on the hen weekend, self-confidence boosts and straight talk from Callum and a social media ‘rework’ of her life and taking back her own ‘descriptors’ the story is easy to read, full of heart and sure to leave you with a smile. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

This is the third book in this series tited "A French Escape". This book is about JoJo Grant, who has been has been hiding from a secret too shameful to share for the past 12 months. While in the midst of her self isolation with puppies and planning her best friend's wedding, one of the most famous celebrity chef around – Callum O’Connor comes into her life. Callum is aware of JoJo’s past during her time as a reality star including the scandal that has dogged her, but he isn’t sure why she’s still hiding? After becoming closer Jojo, Cal believes she has nothing to be ashamed of – she just needs to be a little braver… But as much as JoJo likes Callum, Can JoJo let go of her past…with Callum by her side? This book was a good story about self discovery and the ability to move past the darker moments of our past to help us thrive in the future. Jojo was a good character, but she did not really have a depth or complex personality. She did not let the scandal make her bitter, but it did make her very weary of putting herself out there, not only within her professional life, but also within her personal life. This was very understandable. I loved the support system Jojo had around her especially her best friend Poppy and the Puppies! The moments between Cal and Poppy were very sweet. Cal was a very nice and steady guy throughout this book. While he might be famous and good looking, he is willing to be patient with the pace of her relationship with Jojo. Cal is able to help Jojo learn to trust not only herself, but also trust in a her desire to pursue a new relationship. The book's pacing moved along quite fast, but not to the point that I felt the story line was not developed. I was kinda sad that the book did not have either Cal or Jojo in the kitchen cooking together. I think that would have been a great relationship bonding activity for them due to the comments made by the other characters on the cooking skills both Cal and Jojo were suppose to have. Overall, I felt the ending of the book was very cute! I would recommend this book for those who like reading light and sweet romances. I can't wait to read the other books in this series!

I absolutely adored this book for about 50% and then it was like I had started reading a completely different book altogether. Lately I've been reading quite a few contemporary romances and this sounded like one that stood out from the crowd. It's a book that handles sensitive topics including revenge porn, social media shaming and trolling. These are all such relevant topics in today's society and were handled well. It has a gorgeous setting in France in a beautiful house with numerous canine companions. I thought this was going to be a winner. It was going brilliantly until around halfway through. Then I had some issues. The last thing that Jo wants is to be in the spotlight and seen romantically with another celebrity. However, as soon as they start to get to know each other it's like they've skipped the romance story and gone straight into far too detailed erotica. It was like the plot disappeared and all that was thrown into the story was incessant steamy sessions. Not what I was expecting at all. I didn't particularly like the protagonist either. She seemed to be stuck in a constant loop of going through the same introspective thoughts and worrying about the same things... It didn't make the last half of the story anywhere near enjoyable. Jo was all too happy to forget all of her concerns about her previous partner and the fact that revenge porn is actually a crime wasn't even taken into consideration and her ex seemed to get off scot free. I had high hopes for this one but didn't quite get what I expected. I would have loved to have seen the romance blossom and seen more of a slow burn with them cooking together and exploring the gorgeous area of France they were staying in. My favourite parts of the story were the support system Jo has in place in France. She has great friends and canine companions with brilliant personalities. The journey of self-discovery for Jo was key to the story and worked well. The ending with Jo's ex gave her the story the finale it deserved. Overall, it's a book with great promise and topics, but it wasn't quite the escapism I imagined.

She never dreamed she would be where she is now. She has been burned badly by social media and her ex-boyfriend. She had a wonderful cafe back in England when she was approached to star in a reality show. She was just expecting it to help her business, not ruin her life. Her ex, Aiden, who is a reality star, filmed a sex video of the two of them, and then he proceeded to completely annihilate her life by cheating with her best friend. This poor woman was humiliated just by him, but she was also a victim of bullying on social media blaming her. So, she had no choice but to leave her home, business, family, and friends. She now has some peace with her friend, Poppy, but she may now be in danger of losing her privacy yet again when she discovers guests in the B & B recognize her. Now, a celebrity chef, Callum, is coming to town to help Poppy and her fiance, Leo, get their new barn restaurant started. JoJo isn’t sure about Cal. He represents everything she is trying to get away from. He isn’t so sure about her. He doesn’t really want to be around her because he thinks she represents everything he doesn’t like...being a person seeking fame. Boy, these two have it completely wrong. Thankfully, they begin to see past their preconceptions about one another, and a sweet love story begins. While this is a romance, it is also a book perfect for this day and age of social media. It touches on the dark side of reality television and social media platforms. It is mind-boggling that people will insult and hurt others behind a keyboard and do things they would never do in person. This is a wonderful book about starting over, second chances, and love. If you enjoy a lovely setting, heart-warming romance, and fans of some great canines, then you should definitely give this book a try.

Now, we find get to find out why she came to France and what happens next!  Sex in the Suburbs reality T.V. series gave JoJo her fifteen minutes of fame but it came at a huge personal cost. One sex tape later, she's hiding in Southern France trying to rebuild her life, after leaving her bakery business in the UK. When Irish celebrity chef, Callum O'Connor turns up, lustful sparks fly between them. However, T.V. producers in the UK want JoJo to be part of a new reality spin-off show...along with her ex Aiden and his girlfriend. Is the sexy chef the reason her whereabouts have been uncovered, or is his presence at the Château a coincidence?  Oh my, this novel is sexy and the chemistry between JoJo and Cal is off the scale. As a couple, their physical attraction is instantaneous, their sexy trysts are frequent, however, there's nothing gratuitous in their loved-up scenes as it merely reflects how they are as a couple.  Cal is the perfect partner for JoJo; he's wise, "deep" with his thoughts and has an ability to make JoJo see her situation from a different perspective. He's also using his time in France to re-evaluate his own past like JoJo, but will they feature in each other's future?  For those who have read either of the previous books in the series, you'll be happy to catch up with Poppy and Leo, as their wedding gets closer and plans for the château begin to take shape.  My only "tiny" gripe is about the dogs… there are many, very cute but I felt they stole a bit too much of the limelight away from their humans. Although in kleptomaniac Flump's defence, he plays a useful role at the perfect time! Saying that, if you love adorable dogs, you'll love them all! Overall, another well thought out and written novel by Ms Wilson set against a beautiful backdrop with relatable and likeable characters and a pleasurable ending. ***arc generously received courtesy of One More Chapter via NetGalley***

    What a wonderful trip to France! This books has two very different sides to it.  A lovely romantic setting and a blossoming relationship between two characters with sizzling chemistry On the other hand there's a more sinister theme running though it that highlights some major issues faced by people more and more.  JoJo left England and started a new life in France after being humiliated and betrayed in an incident that ended up on TV with most of the country seeing it.  When Cal, a celebrity chef' What a wonderful trip to France!

For me this was more than a romance.  This was about a broken woman finding herself again and recovering from a traumatic experience.  JoJo was a sweetheart but it was clear from early on how vulnerable she had become and at times it was heartbreaking to see her low self esteem.  I really wanted to splay Aiden and Sally around the head.  Cal is part of that process, helping JoJo to see who she once was and that she can hold her head up with pride.  The chemistry between them was hot from the beginning and I was willing them along the whole time whilst feeling really protective over JoJo.  JoJo is written with sensitivity and thoughts and I think Lorraine really wrote her vulnerable side well whilst giving the reader a glimpse of her former self.  The setting of this novel is superb and so rustic.  I just completely went there too.  And, since I'm unlikely to be tasting any wonderful cuisine on far away shores this year I read every food description with delight.  Yummy!        And I cannot go without mentioning the wonderful collection of four legged friends in this novel who are all little stars. A moving, feel good novel with a wonderful setting.  Thoroughly enjoyable.

    We first met JoJo in book one in the A French Escape series, Poppy’s Place in the Sun, where with Poppy’s help she finds a safe place to hide, following a distressing social media scandal. This book is JoJo’s story; her journey to putting the shame behind her and realising there is a future out there, if she is willing to take it.

This book is JoJo’s story; her journey to putting the shame behind her and realising there is a future out there, if she is willing to take it. Having settled into a life of anonymity as Poppy’s right-hand woman at Le Coqulicots guest house in the French countryside, JoJo’s quiet life is about to be rocked by the arrival of Callum O’Conner. TV chef and friend of Poppy’s fiancé Leo, Cal is looking for his own escape from the limelight and neither of them are too keen on the reminder of celebrity life the other gives them. With Poppy and Leo’s wedding to organise and a new restaurant in the grounds of the Chateau to open, there is plenty of work to keep everyone busy doing their own thing. However, as in all good romances, even those not looking for love are often hit by a stray spark, and there is certainly chemistry between these two. In places this book was so hot the screen on my kindle steamed up. JoJo has to decide how much she is willing to give to Cal and how much she wants from him. There is no denying he’s made her confront some of her darkest thoughts, but maybe this is just what she needs to move on in her life. This is a great summer read that will certainly raise the temperature a degree or two as well as giving us all a gentle reminder about the importance of being kind to others, especially on social media. This has been a fab series of books; Poppy’s Place in the Sun, Christmas at the Chateau and JoJo’s French Escape and I really hope we can return to these characters who are full of life and exude their love of rural French living.

    Good setting and plot, interminable navel-gazing!😒 I was really looking forward to a feel-good romance with a beautiful backdrop. The plot itself and the key discussion of social media shaming and trolling were good, relevant, rife with possibility. The languid, sunny setting in Languedoc, its gorgeous medieval sites, its markets and delectable dishes: yes, that was all I had expected and hoped for.

The languid, sunny setting in Languedoc, its gorgeous medieval sites, its markets and delectable dishes: yes, that was all I had expected and hoped for. The 🐕pets were darling, especially the way their individual personalities came forth. But the story's execution caused me problems. Here are my major bugaboos: - Once intimacy starts, the steamy sessions are too frequent and way too extended. For me, at least on this subject, less is more and the romance does not have to be saturated with non-stop 💦steam! - Way too much repetitive introspection on the part of JoJo. My impression: two-thirds of the story (possibly more!) is her waffling and inwardly gazing and worrying. Neither uplifting nor interesting to me after I'd read her same concerns DOZENS of times! - The big confrontation climax was almost a non-event; I frankly only stuck with the story so long because I was waiting for JoJo's big moment. JoJo came out to the good but, for me, it was barely worth the wait. And, sorry, but I was not that stuck on JoJo's new romantic interest. At times he comes across as a smug know-it-all. So, I was looking for a light, romantic escape and this story did not meet those expectations. JoJo's angst and fears, no matter how realistic, were too omnipresent in the book to make it a good fit for me. Thanks to publisher Harper Collins UK/One More Chapter and NetGalley providing an advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review and the opinions expressed are my own.

In walked the gorgeous celebrity chef, looking for his own escape and Jojo’s carefully shielded world comes crashing down around her. I love the change in tempo that Callum brings to Jojo’s world, he reminds her that she is a woman, that she should not be ashamed of that, and through their budding relationship, Jojo grows in confidence and learns to rewrite the rules. But let’s face it the true jewel in this book is Flump, the mischievous, pilferer with a talent for getting JoJo into sticky situations. This story has the perfect combination of comedy, guilt, grief, and sexiness that will leave readers, packing their suitcases to escape to France. My thanks to the folks at #Netgalley #OneMoreChapter and to the author herself, for allowing me to read and review #JojosFrenchEscape

    It was great to catch up with Poppy and Leo again and to find out about Jojo's story and what she did next. You can certainly read this as a standalone story. With lots of humour stemming from the motley crew of rescued dogs, this is a lively story which will make you smile. However, I felt that this was a book in two halves and I was surprised when it morphed into a much more hot and steamy tale midway though.

During the course of the story, you get to find out quite a lot about what she is thinking and her insecurities and fears for the future. Social media and the manipulation of image through it is a major theme and you get to understand the destructive side of it. Set against the beautiful Languedoc countryside, you can totally understand what Jojo loves about her new life in France and how she has created a safe haven and support system. This is a light, cheery romcom with a bite. In short: Languedoc sparkles as romance blossoms. Thanks to the author for a copy of the book.

She is just beginning to recover from this when they are joined by Callum, a celebrity chef, who knows of her background. This is not a fluffy feel - good story, JoJo has many dark moments that she struggles to get through, but it shows the power of friendship in helping to recover from these times. Throw in some fantastic French scenery and food plus a pack of adorable dogs and I ended up really enjoying this story to the detriment of my sleep. There are some sex scenes, so if you don't like these this isn't the book for you, but it does help to show JoJo's progression in her relationship with Callum. I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley, however this did not influence my review and I've already pre-ordered the book for its release.

JoJo has been living quietly, running her friend Poppy's guesthouse in the south of France with a menagerie of dogs, hiding from the public. When Poppy's fiance Leo's friend, celebrity chef Callum O'Connor, comes to stay JoJo does not intend to get involved. What follows is a story of her finding her confidence and her way back - and way to go! I so wanted her to trust Cal and really hoped he would be a good guy. Some very explicit scenes as the chemistry sizzles, and a joyous story!

    As much as I wanted to enjoy Jojo's French Escape, it was a total flop. I was so bored beginning te end. I kept hoping the story was going to pick up but it didn't. It had so much potential between the serious theme of sex tapes getting leaked online and staining --or destroying-- a person's reputation, to second chances, to falling in love with a celebrity,.. Even the sex scenes, even though graphic at times (which did not bother at all, quite the contrary) did not do anything to me.

The worse part was the extensive puppy scenes and that wedding talk that did absolutely nothing to me. Thank you Net Galley and the publisher for this e-ARC in exchange for my honest review.

All in all, this was a cute romance novel that explored the importance of loving yourself first and not letting others dictate your value.

As the plot unfolds, friendship, puppies and positivity become the key focus of the story. And then there is the very lovely Callum O’Connor, who, as a celebrity chef with plenty of swoon appeal, causes more than what’s cooking to sizzle in the kitchen.

    Found this to be a cute read focusing on aspects not usually touched upon in escapist romance (leaking of sex tapes, a heroine who 'gasp' explicitly says she enjoys sex!) and the chemistry between JoJo and Callum was great to witness and see unfold over the pages. Just felt it was a bit too skewed to Poppy and her wedding, as if Jojo's story were only half the tale and a medium to carry through all the info about the wedding and to also still give Poppy reader's time. Loved the dogs, though, and Found this to be a cute read focusing on aspects not usually touched upon in escapist romance (leaking of sex tapes, a heroine who 'gasp' explicitly says she enjoys sex!) and the chemistry between JoJo and Callum was great to witness and see unfold over the pages.
