Summary from Goodreads:
Annais looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris —until she meets Étienne St. Claire: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.
As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near-misses end with the French kiss Anna —and readers— have long awaited?
My Opinion:

Love. Paris. Boy with cute accent. French food. Drama. More drama. Friends. Love. PARIS.

That pretty much sums it up.

I always try to write good reviews, nothing like, "OHMYGOSH that book IS AWESOME kjsjdfhsjkdfhsj!!!!!!"

But...

OH. MY. GOODNESS.

I couldn't stop reading this book. I had to know how it ended asap! I hadn't felt that many book-related butterflies in my stomach in a long time! I'm using a lot of exclamation marks, but I don't care!

This book is


like this.

And then, whenever Étienne (that is a love name right there. I just made up that term.) and Anna kissed, it was



like this.

I wanted them to kiss all the time. That's how good those scenes were.

The writing is amazing as well. The plot is fantastic, and so is the pace. Everything about this book is incredible. And yes, it's got some clichès, but Stephanie sure used them to her advantage!
I can't write a better review, sorry. All I'm thinking now is, "Where can I sign up for SOAP?" Maybe I'll find my Étienne there.
