Tenley Clarkson has dreamed of being in Paris her whole life. Experiencing all of the sights and culture the city has to offer, the last thing Tenley expects is to find herself enchanted by the emerald green eyes of Jayden Matthews.
Tenley is cautious about trusting anyone. After being betrayed by her mother and her ex-boyfriend, her defenses are up, or at least she thought they were. But Jayden breaks through her walls, making her feel safe and protected. He has the power to consume her – mind and body.
Jayden Matthews knew it the second he saw her. Tenley Clarkson belonged in his life; this beautiful woman who is hiding a world of pain and fear in her eyes. He feels the need to protect her, to make her happy. The smile on her face and the soft sound of her voice exhilarated him and calmed him all at once. He had never felt more alive.
As they explore Paris together, Jayden takes Tenley to places she’d only dreamed of. Gives her moments she couldn’t imagine. A single moment of intense connection unfolds into love.
It was only one moment. But that’s all it takes. As tragedy strikes and threatens to tear them apart, can Tenley learn to trust and love? Can Jayden prove that he will fight for her? Or will he betray her like she has been her whole life?
One moment is all it takes to change your life, to meet someone, to fall in love. One Moment is all it takes, to shatter your world completely, taking away everything you never knew you needed….
I love the Paris theme of this book and believe the author did a great job with researching about it and keeping to the culture. Even though at first it did take me a little to get into the book including some spots that were slow, but after that I enjoyed it. When your in the city of love, anything is possible and I do believe in love at first sight just as this book. The characters she has created all the way down to the names are unique. Tenley has had a lot of pain and been through a lot to where she has a trust problem, but when she meets Jayden he seems to know how to slowly break down the walls. Only thing is there may still be something that is holding them apart. I will have to say my favorite character in this book was Jayden and not because of the way he looks but he is the whole package in one for any women, sweet, loving, and sexy! If you enjoy a sweet and romantic romance this is one for you!
Interview with the Author
No I didn’t actually, it sort of just happened. I use to tell stories when I was younger, like as in memorizing a storybook and then retelling it acting it out a bit. I loved my creative writing classes in high school. I have always had a million ideas going on in my head, characters talking and scenes playing out that I just decided to write it out and see what developed. I use to think I wanted to be a lawyer, then a teacher, now I’m pretty happy in my big girl job and I get to write which is an amazing thing.
Danielle Wright was born in California, but raised in Colorado where she currently resides. She has one younger brother and is close to her family. She loves to read, and has had that passion from a very young age, love stories always being her favorite. She has always loved telling stories and often found herself making up her own stories to tell. Danielle loves the idea that a story, even for just a little while, takes the reader away from everyday life and puts them in a world that they could only dream of. She truly believes that a good book will stay with you and even has the power to change your life. Once she decided to no longer let fear get in her way, Danielle began to bring her dream worlds to life, first as an escape for herself and then, hoping that someday, someone, somewhere, will find their escape in her world.
Danielle values her family and friends above anything else. When she is not reading or writing you can find her hanging out with her family, watching football, The Voice, Greys Anatomy, Sons of Anarchy or going to the movies or concerts with friends. She is a huge country music fan, although her favorite band is Maroon 5 and she has a major crush on Adam Levine. She loves anything Disney, and still believes in magic, fairy tales and true love. She wants her readers to remember to smile, nothing horrible lasts forever. Also, that every moment is important because you never know which moment is going to change your life.
