**Not a Standalone Contemporary Romance. This is a four-part mini-series with cliffhangers.**

 Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.

International Bestselling Author Ava Miles presents a magical four-part mini-series partially set in Dare Valley and the City of Love herself, Paris, guaranteed to tempt your taste buds and capture your imagination.

After resisting Margie Lancaster for one month as part of the gamble he'd lost, Evan Michaels is now in the free and clear to romance her. And it's all the easier since Margie is taking French baking classes in Paris—where Evan lives year-round—in advance of her opening Hot Cross Buns, Dare Valley's new bakery. But there's one catch. Margie comes from money and was tragically disowned by her family, and she's not particularly fond of rich people, especially billionaire alpha playboys. So, Evan is romancing her in the City of Love with his secret hanging over his head, hoping to make her fall for him as much as he's falling for her before she discovers the truth that could destroy everything between them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Part 2 of 4 This is the second part of a four part series. Evan has gone back home to Paris, but Margie is on her way to Paris for apprenticeship with a bread maker. Ava weaves such a beautiful tale of the magic in bread making. That part in the book is just so magical it gave me chills. Evan is still keeping the secret of his billionaire status from Margie. Margie is slowly, but surely falling for Evan the man she thinks he is. Evan is such a romantic, but what happens when his secret comes out?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from falling in love ote: this is a 4 part series, released weekly by the author. In the second book, the story is set in Paris, and we see Margie and Evan's love deepen, as they begin to trust one another, but also see how falling in love taps into their insecurities and their past hurts and pain. Margie is able to tell Evan the truth of her childhood, however, in doing so, Evan feels that he cannot fully share who is (even though he wants to). There's a heartbreak of falling in love, but still not being sure if you can trust yourself and the other person yet.This is paralleled by Margie's own journey as a baker, and learning who she is and what she can give and create. I enjoyed the book, and the alternating points of view...and there is a cliffhanger that left me wanting to read the third book right away to know how it would be resolved! Ava Miles' description of the city, and especially the process of breadmaking, was beautifully written.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A magical reading experience The second part of this mini series left me on my seat. It was so amazingly written that I can hardly wait for the third part. This part is set in Paris and it was a really magical experience. Previously, at the end of part one, when Margie sent Evan to the airport and encountered a rich and inconsiderate driver, she expressed her disdain for the rich. At the start of the second part, Evan was torn between revealing who he really was and keeping it a secret. In the end, he decided to keep it a secret. As Margie begins to fall in love with Paris, and the art of baking baguette, she also starts to fall in love with Evan. I really loved how Ava Miles made their first kiss so special. After all the anticipation and build-up, I think it would have been really disappointing if they just fell into bed like that. The way Ava Miles created the whole special first kiss really made the story even more sweet and romantic. The time Margie spent in the bakery baking baguettes with Andre was really magical. I could just envision myself in that bakery, smelling all the wonderful smells of freshly baked bread. I could just picture Andre talking animatedly in that French accent, sharing his knowledge and love for baking bread. I have not been to France but somehow, I feel that Ava Miles have managed to perfectly capture that essence of the French. The second part ended with a huge cliff-hanger (of course). Margie had confessed her secret of why she hated the rich so much to Evan and Evan was really torn. He was really afraid that he would lose her once she knew the truth. As secrets always have a way of getting out, Margie found out who Evan really was and she was crushed!! Really looking forward to part three to see how the story progresses. ** I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paris Pleasure with scandalous secrets This is the second installment of Dare Valley Meets Paris and I can't wait to see how it all comes together. We see Margie in Paris going to learn bread making from a master. Love the humor that Andre introduces and gives Margie a lot to think on in her relationship with Evan.  She and Evan pick up right where they left off in Dare Valley, and things get so much more in Paris. She sees and learns things about herself and her relationship with Evan. And finds herself falling hard and fast. When secrets are revealed can she trust in what they have together? Evan has kept his secret. And knows he needs to tell Margie his identity but is afraid to lose her. His creativity is abounding and he knows it is because of Margie and his feelings for her. But when everything comes crashing down, what will become of hem?  I can't wait for the next in line to see what happens with these two!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THANK YOU AVA!!!!! I was so thrilled to read the first two in the Billionaires meets Paris story – Billionaires Gamble & Billionaire’s Secret. I actually had been hoping there would be a chance to read Margie’s story – I can’t how this could have been played out better … except I am waiting for the next installments. Ava, you have written Margie and Evan’s back story so well, and of course, the stories in both the Gamble and the Secret play out beautifully – so much so, I devoured them in one sitting. Please, keep writing Ava! "I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own."
