The Frenchman (Crime Royalty Romance #1) ~ Lesley Young

Fleur Smithers rarely veers off the straight and (excruciatingly) narrow. So moving to the seaport town of Toulon to live with her newfound biological mother—an inspector with the French National Police—for one year is a pretty major detour. 

Son of France’s crime royalty family and international rugby star, Louis Messette, is devoted to his sport, famille and nothing else. But the carefree American he meets one night changes everything. She sparks a desire in him like no other. Possession takes root. She will do as he commands. 

Bit by bit Fleur slips into the Frenchman’s realm of wanton pleasure agreeing to his one condition: that she keep their affair secret. She serves up her heart without reservation in the hub of the glittering Côte d’Azur, and the along the soulful Seine in Paris, unaware of the danger she is in. For her new lover’s family business will pit her against her mother, the police woman sworn to bring down the Messettes. And by then, far more than Fleur’s heart will be on the line.

Louis is one straight up sexy, hot alpha male. Throwing cell phones in to walls give any indication? His dirty talk in French was all sorts of yummy! ::swoon:: I loved Louis, but there were times I didn't understand what he was trying to show or prove. I often became frustrated with his "games" that he kept telling Fleur he was not playing.
As innocent as Fleur was, she learned and grew up quick. I felt bad that her heart was broken, but also proud of her for standing up to Louis and her mom. She had a great attitude considering her biological mother put her up for adoption and her adoptive dad left her adoptive mom. She wasn't bitter and even felt fortunate for all the love she did receive.

When Fleur pushed Louis away, I knew she had to to it. I knew Louis loved her, but he couldn't come to terms with letting her in. He didn't know how. Don't want to give away too much, but I definitely recommend it. No Cliffy on this one.
