REVIEW - You Turn by Marion Croslydon

"I was the little girl who loved you from afar. I was the woman who gave herself away for you and ended up losing a lot of who she was." 

"Then allow me to give back some of what I stole." 

After being dumped by her fiancĂ©, Eleanor Carrington flees to Paris to help her self-medicated mother. While keeping her mom from popping pills like gummy bears, Eleanor launches a new, no-strings-attached life plan with absolutely NO falling in love whatsoever. On her part at least, because her self-esteem could do with one or two Frenchmen going un peu crazy for her. 

What she doesn’t need is for her first Grand Amour, Zachary Murdoch, to burst back into her life. Whatever shit-show she’s just been through was a stroll. What Zach put her though was a climb up Mount Everest. Barefoot. In a bikini. 

Now a club-owner in Paris, Zach is intrigued by the troubled woman who was once the sweet girl he had to give up. Offering a shoulder for her to cry on is what he owes her. Loving her is what he lost the right to. Because there’s a reason he broke up with Lenor and that reason is why she’s in Paris. 

But Paris is known as the City of Love… 

Will he be her turn at love? 

You Turn by Marion Croslydon
My Rating 3.5 out of 5

Eleanor "Lenor" - I don't know……something about her did not click with me. I did feel bad for her because of her malicious and selfish mother. Zach - I had high hopes, but sometimes you can't escape your past and secrets.

Fortunely, I had a change of heart for Lenor, she actually dealt with some issues much better than I would have. I probably would have slapped and sucker punched a few people. (I don't condone violence but this is fiction). Let me get back on track....the love scenes were steamy but not graphic (how I usually like them).

I liked the book but couldn't give it a higher rating because it took me too long to really get into the story and the characters. I thought the epilogue was PERFECT and loved the added touch of referencing her favorite movie.
