Naughty Paris by Jina Bacarr

Why I read this: It's a time travel book, and I like those.

After being jilted by her fiancĂ©, Autumn Maguire uses her nonrefundable honeymoon tickets to explore Paris on her own. Eager to experience the true bohemian lifestyle, she answers an ad for an artist's model. When she exchanges her clothes for the artist's lush red cloak, something strange happens…a feeling of intense sensual reawakening overcomes her. Suddenly lightning strikes and through the power of black magic she's thrust back into…
…the nineteenth century where the scandalous painter Paul Borquet is insisting she become his Titian-haired muse. Between everyone's strange clothing, the claustrophobic Parisian streets and the overpowering pull of sexual desire, Autumn can't process…just where the heck is she and how did she get here? And frankly, with Paul's expert caresses imprinted on her body, does she really care about going back to present day?

There was a lot going on in Naughty Paris. It was fast paced, and so full of twists and turns that I got a bit dizzy reading it.

Autumn is sent back to 1889 after...pleasuring front of the self portrait of a semi-famous painter. She is holding on to a magical statue that grants her extreme beauty and youth. Before she knows it, she is facing the man from the painting in the flesh. She is pleasantly surprised to see that she is so beautiful. Her skin, hair, face, everything is so wonderful, just perfect. The best thing, according to her, is that she looks young. Like an 18-20 year old version of herself.
There is a catch though-If she falls in love she will lose her new beauty and become what she once was. A 35 year year old with a bit of a tummy and winkles (Oh, the horror!)

Paul is with her, he can't keep his eyes and hands off her. He isn't able to keep them out of her either. While painting her portrait he thinks it needs a little something and boy does he figure out what that something is. (please highlight the following text with your mouse for a spoiler) Paul gets her hot and horny, then uses a clay pot to collect her "honey juices". He then mixes her honey juice into the paint and continues on with his painting of her her.

Autumn gets into tons of trouble while in Paris. Since she is so beautiful and so perfect everyone wants her. For some reason, a beautiful woman can't walk down the street in Paris without everyone thinking that she is a prostitute.

It's illegal to be an unregistered prostitute in old Paris, so Autumn is thrown into a nasty prison where she has her first lesbian encounter.

Thats not all though. A jealous prostitute named Lillian is trying to kill her because she thinks Autumn stole Paul away from her. At first Lillian only wanted to cut up Autumn's face to make her ugly, but then Autumn went and insulted calling her the whore that she is. So Lillian is double pissed and wants to maim AND kill her.

Oh, poor Autumn. It's such a chore being so perfectly gorgeous.

The only thing that can get Autumn's spirit up is to think about Paul. How great he is in bed, how sexy he makes her feel. She fantasises about all the yummy sexual thinks he would once again do with her when she gets out of prison.

She gets out eventually, but there is no rest for someone so beautiful. When she isn't trying to avoid pervert doctors, and both men & woman who want to get up her skirts, she is being kidnapped and forced to be the virgin sacrifice during a black mass of devil worship.

It sure is hard to being a beautiful virgin prostitute in old Paris.
I struggled with this review, as I am not sure how I feel about the book. I think I'll settle on a C/C+. As weird at the book was at times..pretty much every secondary character had the chance to finger the heroine or fondle her breasts. It was also a page turner. Plus, I loved the end. There was even a pretty neat twist with Paul. The most imporant thing for me when I read is the love. Naughty Paris has a romantic ending with a couple who love each other deeply.

I also thought is was great that Autumn didn't go on worrying about how Paul will react once he sees her as her true self. A big pet peeve of mine is when they worry so much. Example: an older heroine mentioning age difference over and over again, making it the main focus of the story. That did not happen here. Sure, Autumn mentioned that she wondered what Paul would say once he saw her as a 35 year old, but it was a subtle thought that did not pull me from the story

It was a rocky road for this couple and I wasn't so sure they would be able to be together. I wondered how the author would pull it off, as they had so many obstacles in front of them. It all worked out very nicely though.

    You like TT? Cool!

    I got this rec from Amazon and I want someone to read it and tell me if it's any good. I don't read a lot of TT and I hate chick lit, but this sounds like it could be a lot of fun (or a complete disaster)

    Very interesting with the something extra for the painting. lol.

    Well, as usual, I screwed up the clickable linkie. grrrr

    Just click on "12:19 PM" and it takes you there.

    I don't have a clue how I managed to accomplish that particular creative fuck-up.

    I do like TT a lot. :) I probably would not buy that book because the cover sucks. Sorry, I'm no help. It sounds cool though.

    LOL, Izzy.
    P.s-did you get my email a few days ago? I sent you a little suprise....
