“These kisses of his…they’re demanding and possessive. They’re hungry and deep. They’re the kisses of a man who wants more of a woman—who wants everything—and isn’t going to stop until he gets it.”
Author Olivia Rossi hasn’t been able to write a word since tragedy struck two years ago and ripped her world apart. Heartbroken and still haunted by the past, she accepts an offer to spend the summer at a friend’s apartment in Paris in search of healing and her lost muse.
What she finds instead is James, an enigmatic stranger who ignites in her an unexpected and all-consuming passion.
Agreeing to tell each other nothing more than their first names, Olivia and James embark on a torrid affair. But the more time they spend together, the more Olivia begins to realize her summer fling is turning into a powerful connection…and that the magnetic man she’s falling in love with might not be what he seems at all.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In the case of Perfect Strangers that saying is 100% true. Go ahead and take a better look at the cover art, let yourself really capture all the photo has to offer and in it you will see the story of Olivia and James.
Nothing, absolutely nothing could have prepared me for the wild ride that is Perfect Strangers. From the characters, to the story line and the startling and shocking twists and turns, I had no idea what I was in for when I starting reading this book.
Olivia is a great character. Quirky, endearing, witty and intelligent. There’s something about this character that kind of grabs you from the start.
James, well my goodness if you were to look up alpha male in the dictionary I’m sure you would find a picture of James. He was spot on exquisite. Mysterious, alluring, complicated, daring and determined.
All characters large and small were scripted to perfection. There was no room for you to second guess about the characters physical or emotional attributes. The only thing the author allowed was for you to take her brilliant descriptions and create the most spot on visuals in your mind. Seeing these characters come to life within my sub-conscious was fabulous!
The story line was so enjoyable. Not like anything I have read before. From the professions of the characters, to their family lives and their friends. Each character added a special twist to the story and each held their own unique quality.
While like everyone else who reads, there were times I found myself shocked at the turn of events, but honestly I can’t remember a time when I literally sat dumbfounded at what had transpired. Something I truly enjoyed but still after having had finished the book surprises me.
From heartbreak to love. Lies from the past that surface and confuse the here and now. From passion to confusion. Perfect Strangers was such an enjoyable, suspenseful, delightful and dangerously decadent story.
This was the first book I have read by J. T. Geissinger and I’m thrilled that I found this author. I’m looking forward to reading more of her work.
