    This is a well written story of Greg, an Englishman who happens to meet Juliette and that forever changes his life.I read the first story in this series a while back and hadn t realized the stories were connected until Greg is invited to the families Chateau in France and all the gay couples started to seem familiar, and the story line and plot seemed familiar too.The blurb doesn t quite do the story justice, Greg is a one night stand kinda guy, he doesn t do love, he doesn t do commitment, but This is a well written story of Greg, an Englishman who happens to meet Juliette and that forever changes his life.I read the first story in this series a while back and hadn t realized the stories were connected until Greg is invited to the families Chateau in France and all the gay couples started to seem familiar, and the story line and plot seemed familiar too.The blurb doesn t quite do the story justice, Greg is a one night stand kinda guy, he doesn t do love, he doesn t do commitment, but slowly he is starting to see what couples who do have love and commitment have and he doesn t.Juliette does try to fix him up, once, but he sort of stumbles across Robin, also a Brit who buys run down places and fixes them up and moves on to the next one, and like Greg, he is starting to see a place he would like to stay.A lot of this story takes place in Greg s head, his thoughts of not wanting to stay, not wanting to commit, not wanting to love Robin, until he realizes it might not matter what he wants, it s already happened.The sex scenes are numerous but written in a way that it flows so well in the story, it doesn t even feel like a sex scene.It s a definite HFN ending, but I m sure these two are going to make it and I m also sure Juliette and her clan will make sure of it

    Really this series has been such a pleasure Every one of these books conveys the beauty of the place and the essence of the way of life in this French valley In this episode we once again have the Romaine clan, but they are visiting England in the beginning and our favorite, Juliette, approached Greg, looking for the local gay bar as she is on a mission to find her cousin Matthieu from White Flag because he has had a fight with Charlie Greg is both affronted and charmed by Juliette aren t Really this series has been such a pleasure Every one of these books conveys the beauty of the place and the essence of the way of life in this French valley In this episode we once again have the Romaine clan, but they are visiting England in the beginning and our favorite, Juliette, approached Greg, looking for the local gay bar as she is on a mission to find her cousin Matthieu from White Flag because he has had a fight with Charlie Greg is both affronted and charmed by Juliette aren t we all and takes her to the local establishment where she of course finds Matt and texts Charlie Shortly thereafter Charlie arrives, but Greg continues to entertain and be entertained by Juliette rather than look for his fuck du jour as it were Instead, ends up leaving alone and kind of relishes the anomaly He is quite surprised when Juliette arrives on his doorstep with Charlie, Matt, Jeff and Benet in tow the next day and insists that he spend the day with them They have a great time and the next thing he knows he is invited to the chateau in France for a holiday and somehow he manages to accept His holiday in France he figures is a chance to reboot and give celibacy a bit of a chance He s a software engineer and he had cleared his schedule But what he hasn t counted on is the closeness of the Romaine clan and their adoption of him into the family immediately, so he escapes on the bike early on his first morning ostensibly to go to the market for grandmere but really to give himself a little space What he doesn t expect is Robin A former chef, now house flipper and vegetable stall owner, Robin is an Englishmen who has spent his adulthood in this valley He assists Greg in getting the items that are needed for the Romaines, but then they end up spending the day together at his stall He invites Greg to have dinner with him and some friends but Greg is thinking he should go back to the Romaines and he certainly has to get them the market purchases But Juliette once again tries to railroad him, so he decides to go out with Robin While Greg thinks this is a one night stand, he really can t stop thinking about Robin the next day after he leaves Greg at the Romaines He shows up later and it seems that he is trading recipes and secrets with grandmere He doesn t stay to dinner, but it seems like maybe he and Greg are not done I loved how the rest of the story unfolded with Greg being honest about his reasons for going it alone and Robin s clear understanding of why he feels that way, but still wanting to be with him The true surprise in this story, and a welcome one, is Claudette, the mother of the Romaine clan Her words of wisdom were perfect and just what was needed in this story, once again proving that sometimes the family we choose is much better for us than the family we are born into

    5 sparkling starsIn the third book of this French based series, Thom Lane follows the same formula that worked so well previously But, I don t care, I don t care at all as I am seduced once again by the lovely writing and story telling With gentle charm and earthy humor, you are lulled into the countryside, and into the lives of an eccentric family that seems to be a haven for slightly lost bright boys as Greg, our main character puts it.How wonderful it is to return to this world of softly 5 sparkling starsIn the third book of this French based series, Thom Lane follows the same formula that worked so well previously But, I don t care, I don t care at all as I am seduced once again by the lovely writing and story telling With gentle charm and earthy humor, you are lulled into the countryside, and into the lives of an eccentric family that seems to be a haven for slightly lost bright boys as Greg, our main character puts it.How wonderful it is to return to this world of softly rolling hills, dappled footpaths, and vineyards bursting with earth s bounty, sun kissed and hope full Greg, on vacation, is adopted by the family Romaines well known local vintners known for their pink fizz sparkling wine already introduced in the previous books and specifically, the young Juliette She takes an immediate liking to him and, ever the match maker, tucks him under her wing Perhaps she sees something in him that needs care For Greg certainly comes across as the lone wolf Shying away from commitment and any hope at love, he s expert at stalking the quick and easy hook up Yet, he is slowly seduced into the possibility of somethingby this warm and generous family I won t go into Greg s fall towards the handsome, self sufficient Robin, so sweetly done from the start you feel the heat off the pageMaybe if I stayed sitting down, he wouldn t notice how my cock was pointing directly at him inside my jeans Him, let s take him Let s have him nowIt s a given, an inevitability For me, it s the unwrapping of Greg s inner sweetness which he thinks he s kept safely locked away against further hurt , that insight which makes him aware of Juliette s own underlying heartache, that is the key to his character and to the story Not only is he seduced by the family, the country, by Robin, but he succumbs to this inner kindness and when he does so, he discovers his true heart The author does all this without laying it on thick, you are allowed to muse and fit the pieces together, it s left to the reader to discover their own seduction I love these books as quiet, gentle, literary gifts and for always bringing a smile Aside it is a marvel to me that this author can so successfully produce these sweet, effervescent stories along side his other darker tales of power play and slavery A further testament to his skills

    Really enjoyed this sweet and hot romance It was contemporary but it had a magical glow over the romance and I would adore a glass of the sparkling wine the story is named for My only small gripe was that sphincter is a jarring word in a romantic sex scene and it was used a couple of times Accurate, maybe, but sexy, no.

    Thom Lane s writing is always a breath of fresh air for me It s light, easy, and romantic There s an effortless feeling to the prose and narration, one that can either sweep you away or leave you wantingI tend to sit back and enjoy the journey without critiquing too much as the imagery and crisp emotions flow from the characters In this third installment of the French Wine series, I liked the main couple and as always adored the Romaines The trust problems presented are a bit melodram Thom Lane s writing is always a breath of fresh air for me It s light, easy, and romantic There s an effortless feeling to the prose and narration, one that can either sweep you away or leave you wantingI tend to sit back and enjoy the journey without critiquing too much as the imagery and crisp emotions flow from the characters In this third installment of the French Wine series, I liked the main couple and as always adored the Romaines The trust problems presented are a bit melodramatic and overwrought, an excuse to prolong the storythan anything However, I didn t mind this, as I like revisiting Lane s contemporary stories a lot They re a palate cleanser and the perfect thing for a nice spring night The story starts in England this time and we meet Greg, the first person narrator He s on his way to the club to pick up his one nightstand, a different one each Saturday He s interrupted by the irrepressible Juliette, on a mission to lovingly interfere in the lives of her friends and family Juliette quickly adopts Greg and gets him to France, where she plays matchmaker almost instantly Almost in defense Greg chooses to pursue the sexy vegetable stall owner, Robin Although Greg never spendsthan one night with anyone, he can t help making an exception with Robin Telling himself that he ll end the relationship every day, Greg finds himself drawn deeper into the countryside, new culture, warm embrace of the Romaines, and his irresistible passion with Robin.Although this is the third book in the series, each one is easily read as a stand alone The other couples make appearances but you don t need to read the previous books at all I vaguely remembered the other couples from past books but they re barely present in the book so it s not a problem On the flip side, the interfering Juliette has a large role and I can t help but adore her She s bratty and forceful and definitely sticks her nose in everywhere but as in previous books, she means no harm and the men easily side step her machinations She s not the obnoxious trope that is often used in this genre, butso an extremely intelligent, quick witted, lovely girl with too much time on her hands I personally found her charming Juliette s over the top bossiness helps overcome a few stumbles The first of which is glossed over but I never understood why the family embraces Greg so quickly and thoroughly It s lovely for sure, yet doesn t quite make sense There s no real explanation offered and it s a minor point Likewise I thought Greg s trust issues are melodramatic and entirely overwrought He is deliberately dense, but most of this seems an excuse to prolong the story The happy ending and way the two worked out how to be together happens mostly off page, we re simply told it happens, which reinforces the feel that these two didn t really have any obstacles to overcome Not that every story needs deep drama and emotional problems to find a happy ending Here Robin and Greg are not the most well developed characters but they re fun to read and they have a lot of passionate sex we re told Add in the ease of the prose and vivid French background and this is a smooth and light tale that satisfies I d recommend it for readers wanting something effortless and simple

    What a perfect title for this book as this is one of those fizzy, frothy stories Maybe it s the Vineyard setting and all the wine drinking the fact that Robin is a chef so there s a lot of food descriptions but there s a sensual quality to this story as if everything was done to woo Greg and I m all for an old fashioned wooing story It all starts when Greg is approached by a young French girl who s quite willing to ask a perfect stranger obnoxious questions Greg for some reason does answer What a perfect title for this book as this is one of those fizzy, frothy stories Maybe it s the Vineyard setting and all the wine drinking the fact that Robin is a chef so there s a lot of food descriptions but there s a sensual quality to this story as if everything was done to woo Greg and I m all for an old fashioned wooing story It all starts when Greg is approached by a young French girl who s quite willing to ask a perfect stranger obnoxious questions Greg for some reason does answer her the next thing is swept away on an adventure with Juliette and her 4 gay friends relative they appear to be characters from the other books in the series Greg finds himself agreeing to go on vacation in Provence with this group of people he just met Why Because like everyone in this book, they re all charmed by Juliette into doing things.It s true that Juliette is one of those women who gladly interferes into all her gay friend s lives But Greg allows himself to be led by her only when it suits him He gets a lovely vacation a great group to hang out with so he doesn t see the harm in letting her have her way But when he finds Robin, the man he s interested in all on his own, he s quick to ditch her and do what he wants And he finds a way to get rid of her for her own good when she becomes a nuisance There s a plot here about Greg not wanting to get too close to anyone so he puts up a lot of resistance to Robin at first But he falls, predictably under the pressure of all that romantic setting, the irresistibly attractive Robin all Juliette s family friends This isn t deep stuff but I must have been in the mood for it because I enjoyed it quite a bit This one is a nice light read

    The moment I started reading Pink Fizz , I was caught Written in first person, Greg leads you on his journey as he slowly, reluctantly falls for Robin You can clearly see how the other couples examples tempt Greg into wanting a relationship instead of his current practice of one night hook ups and singledom As Juliette and her lovely family entice Greg into taking a holiday from his usual system, you find yourself cheering for Robin and hoping Greg will give in.A nice, positive story that l The moment I started reading Pink Fizz , I was caught Written in first person, Greg leads you on his journey as he slowly, reluctantly falls for Robin You can clearly see how the other couples examples tempt Greg into wanting a relationship instead of his current practice of one night hook ups and singledom As Juliette and her lovely family entice Greg into taking a holiday from his usual system, you find yourself cheering for Robin and hoping Greg will give in.A nice, positive story that leaves you feeling hopeful, Pink Fizz is a story that could possibly happen here in the real world and makes you wish there werepeople like Juliette and her family around, even as you aren t sure if you d want to let them push you into doing something different.I definitely recommend it and am seriously thinking about reading the first two in the series.Purchase Link
