Finished In Paris With You by Clementine Beauvais. I received a copy for review.
Summary (from Goodreads):
“Eugene and Tatiana had fallen in love that summer ten years ago. But certain events stopped them from getting to truly know each other and they separated never knowing what could have been.
But one busy morning on the Paris metro, Eugene and Tatiana meet again, no longer the same teenagers they once were.
What happened during that summer? Does meeting again now change everything? With their lives ahead of them, can Eugene and Tatiana find a way to be together after everything?
Written in gorgeous verse, In Paris With You celebrates the importance of first love. Funny and sometimes bittersweet this book has universal appeal for anyone who has been in love.”
I don’t entirely know how I feel about this book. It’s definitely entertaining, but I also actively disliked Eugene. (Picture the world’s most annoying guy, and that’s Eugene. It’s definitely Eugene as a teenager, hurting people because he can. He seems better as an adult but he’s still pretty awful. I don’t understand why Tatiana would ever spend time with him.)
This is a quick read and I enjoyed the writing and meeting Tatiana. But…this is not a great love story. It’s a woman potentially settling for a jerk.
