Montmartre Stairs: A Paris Love Story by Douglas Warren

John is the son of rich and powerful parents and his life is line to continue this tradition.  He's a banker and a lawyer.  He's from the states but is living in London and checking out the Paris banking branches.  He has a girlfriend he will marry one day.  Life is settled and he's moving forward.  Then he notices a disabled woman falling down the stairs at the train station and he catches her to stop her from being hurt.  When he looks in her eyes, his old life is lost...

The author shared a copy of this book with me for a review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy on Amazon.

This is mainly a story about love but it's also about growing up and making your own decisions.  The hardest part was telling his controlling girlfriend that they were through.  Soon he has his little sister calling him and berating him.  She visits next but it makes no difference.

John has finally found a woman that touches his soul.  He loves her smile, her wit, her humor and her positive attitude.  He learns what love is and he's willing to give up his old life to have it.  He also finds himself changing.  He's loosening up and laughing more.  He likes Michelle's theater friends and her parents.  Now if only he get his parents to adjust to the fact that he's marrying Michelle, all would be good.

I'm a bit too cynical to read this sort of novel without some disbelief.  Instant love and no real bumps in his love life?  However, it's a pleasant read and took me to France for a few hours so it was worth reading.  If you're into romance, this is a book for you.
