Blurb: Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last? 

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.


It’s the third book in Anna and the French kiss series and I really liked the book and it’s a nice ending to the series. It’s one of those books that is just so cutesy and adorable.

The third book is set in Paris and follows the adventures of Isla and Josh. Isla had been in love with Josh for years, and even Josh had noticed her, but due to different circumstances it took a while to finally find out the truth and be together.

I really liked the description of Paris and all the places they went, just like in the first book, it was nice to walk around in France again. Their relationship didn’t develop without drama nor obstacles, which made it more realistic than happily ever after right away, but there was a bit of unnecessary problems as well, in my opinion, like Josh’s mom took the phone away or they didn’t talk their problems through soon enough. It was also nice to read a bit about the previous characters and how they have done, all characters from three books were nice connected and tied together.

All in all, it was a cute and sweet story about two young people falling in love and having a bright future ahead.
