From the glittering streets of Manhattan to the moonlit rooftops of Paris, falling in love is easy for hopeless dreamer Isla and introspective artist Josh. But as they begin their senior year in France, Isla and Josh are quickly forced to confront the heartbreaking reality that happily-ever-afters aren’t always forever.

Their romantic journey is skillfully intertwined with those of beloved couples Anna and √Čtienne and Lola and Cricket, whose paths are destined to collide in a sweeping finale certain to please fans old and new.

This series is the quintessential love story. It is full of just mushy, gushy, amazing love. I devour these books within hours and still want more.
The finale of Anna & The French Kiss was amazing. I really enjoyed Isla. Out of all the main girls in the books I feel like I connect with her the most. She's shy, quirky and loves to read; need I say more? I did enjoy Josh's character as well. He was adorable and arsty but I have to admit I will always be a St.Clair girl. 
This book was no let down at all! I know sometimes we build up books we are not so eagerly waiting for and when they come out sometimes it's a bit of a let down but not Isla. It delivered love, humor and friendship.
I loved the fact that almost from the get go Isla & Josh were together (which is not spoiling anything). Most of the time in contemporaries we have to wait until almost the very end to see the couple get together! This book focuses on the relationship or rather the long distance relationship & whether or not it can last as well as questioning the notion of what does it mean to be worthy of love?
So if you haven't read this series, what are you waiting for? Pick it up & you will defiantly not be disappointed!
