    1. njkinnysblog/2014/10/aUnder My Skin is the third book by Alix Nichols that I read. The love story of Mat and Jeanne whom we met in the first book in the series, What If It's Love?, I was very eager to start on the book.The cover is likable and the blurb interesting. After reading the blurb I got an impression that this would be a teasing and a scandalous read but instead the book is almost quiet, flows slowly and the love story develops over a time span of almost a year.The characterization is g [...]


    2. got received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for the book tour.The writing style took me a few pages to get used too. I loved the fact that the book was being told mainly out of Jeanne point of view but there were a few pages that was told out of Matts. It gave the book a fresh twist."sight of the tall, sandy-haired, light-eyed Viking descendants who looked so different from the average Frenchman."This book is not like most love stories where the guy and girl falls in love i [...]


    3. I love Jeanne's character. the very first book, she has been one of my favorites, her brutal honesty and sassiness make her interesting but I love that she is comfortable in her own skin. I liked Mat better as a geek, after the 'transformation' (along with the girlfriend) I felt as though he lost the sweet part of his personality but I was glad to see that he found himself in the end!


    4. Alix Nichols has a way of writing messy life stories into romantic comedy. We have Mat a tall gorgeous buffed man transformed from the thin toad eyed grad student and nerd who lusted after Jeanne a barister at La Boheme 4 years ago is back for friends wedding and and Cecile his polished rail thin girlfriend who doesn't eat or want to be touched sexually. A lot of sexual frustration and growing up on Mat's part who had snobish ideas about ambition, careers and real love who still lusts after Jean [...]

    6. I was so excited when I learned that the second book would be Mat and Jeanne's story. From book 1, What If It's Love, Mat has been crushing on Jeanne since like forever but Jeanne never gave him the time of the day because he looks like a nerd plus she was still in a relationship that time. Well, a few years later Mat came back and the instant he saw Jeanne his feelings for her (ahem, more like lust) came flashing back at the same time Jeanne felt flustered since Mat changed and she didn't recog [...]


    7. I'm still smiling.I wanted to read this one for quite some time. Having read all the other stories in this series (so far), this one just kept calling to me. For one reason or another I never quite got around to it but put it on my wishlist. When the author offered me an opportunity to read it; I jumped at the chance. When I got it and started reading I thought, "Oh, please be good, I don't want to be disappointed". I wasn't. I had liked Jeanne from the other books and was glad to get more into [...]


    8. Under My Skin: Paris Contemporary Romance (Bistro La Bohème Book 2) I did receive this book as a free ARC Copy in exchange for an honest review. This novel was very good. I did go back to read book 1 & book 1.5, but, you don't need to as these are standalones. The main characters are a feisty barista Jeanne, & Mat, who is trying to run for a political office. Although Mat his heart & head are mainly consumed with thoughts of Jeanne. Jeanne & Mat know each other through mutual fr [...]


    9. I received Under My Skin as an Arc/Gift. As a way of giving my Thanks, is by giving my mistake honest review.I absolutely loved this story, with the two going back and forth between wanting each other and backing off. But they finally get it together and share the love that was destined to explode. Alix nailed it, 100% hands Down! Mat is back and totally hot. The minute he spots Jeanne, all the old feelings and crush come back @ full steam. The problem is he has a girlfriend he thinks he loves. [...]


    10. Can I just say that this book was beautifully written. The story just seemed to flow together and I have to give props to the author, Alix Nichols, for that. Anyways moving on, I really enjoyed this story because at the moment I was not really in the mood to read anything heavy but something light that would be really light and this book provided that for me. It's just one of those feel good novels that was really entertaining and that was exactly what I needed at the moment. I enjoyed all the m [...]


    11. Following in the excellent wake of What If It's Love?, the story keeps unfolding in and around the Bistro La La Bohème. When we left our Parisians last, we had focused on Lena and Rob, a pair of very realistic lovers who had their own issues and experiences that really made the story feel like more than a steamy romance, even though it excels very well in that regard as well. Under My Skin takes things a step further. Not only has author Alix Nichols managed to eschew a lot of the romance trope [...]


    12. I love Alix Nichols books because I love the way her characters fall in love. It takes a while for the stars to align, for conditions to be just so, for her heroes and heroines to realize they need each other. Mat is living with Cecile, a dedicated environmental lawyer, but he's held spirited bartender Jeanne in his heart for years. Jeanne's heart's desire is to manage the "La Boheme" cafe where she works and she struggles with her feelings for the "taken" Mat. It had been a while since I'd last [...]


    13. Definitely a little more heat in this one. The whole series surrounds this cute little cafe in Paris. Jeanne is a bar maid and focus of Mat's infatuation. He crushed for years during his geeky faze and she never noticed. Now, muscled and mature, he's back but unavailable. I admire the risks Nichols took without actually committing them to an act. He had great character and passion but seemed to lack the drive without the girlfriend. Jeanne stuck to her feelings and morals, admirable really. Defi [...]


    14. A ROMANCE THAT KEEPS YOU GUESSING WHATS NEXT!!A wonderful romance that shows the challenges of meeting societies expectations within a relationship. The main character's stories keep the reader on the edge of their seat, while the descriptive writing of the author puts the reader right in the scenes. This is writing at its best. The author kept the story unique, in yet believable, while using story twists to keep the reader intrigued. A wonderful contemporary romance that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I w [...]


    15. Nous retrouvons notre bistrot préféré pour notre plus grande joie. Cette fois nous suivons Jeanne, la barman aux cheveux bleus qui ne sont plus bleus, et Mathieu, le prince charmant qui était crapaud.Nous retrouvons également nos anciens protagonistes et c'est une fois de plus un régalUne histoire fraiche, tendre qui nous promène entre paris (et notre bistrot ) et la Normandie.Des joies, des peines, de l'amour, des ruptures, des non dits et des révélations Bref un roman qui se lit d'une [...]


    16. Lust yoyoOf the Bistro series, this was my least favorite. There was tangible lust between Mat and Jeanne, but I never got the sense of when they truly fell in love. They lusted for each other for so long. Jeanne didn't even like Mat until he grew up some, got more muscular, more handsome and had a girlfriend. Mat always had a huge crush on Jeanne, but until she showed interest, there was nothing between these two.Despite the lack of romance, I felt the story was still well written and kept the [...]


    17. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I would like to give it 3.5 stars.The characters are likeable enough. The conflict and tensions between them all are satisfying.The pace moves well. I just couldn't say I really cared all that much.I wanted to be more attached and involved.The question continues throughout the book - is it lust or could it be love.I won't tell you the ending, but as a reader, I was not satisfied the question was answered.


    18. May had his eyes on Jeanne for years, before she ever noticed him. Now that he is back in Paris, he has caught her eye, but he has a girlfriend. They dance around each other and their connection in a painful dance. A story full of passion, the threat of unrequited love, self imposed limitations, love, and self discovery. A great addition to the series. I couldn't put it down!


    19. I received an ARC for an honest and fair review. I have to say that these stories were much more entertaining than I thought they would be!! The interaction between characters and books were wonderful as the characters seem to develop more throughout each book . I definitely will read any future books with these characters and from Alix. Great read!!


    20. "I received an ARC in exchange for a fair review."This is the 3rd book in the series.Again I loved the characters, the story line. I would definitely recommend the series to my family and friends to read.


    21. I really enjoyed this series , but loved Under My Skin the best. For me it was the build up between Jeanne and Mat :-) I received an ARC in exchange for a fair review
