Detour Paris has received many reviews within it's first months of publication and they continue coming in.
This novel, “Detour Paris” by Jack Dancer is one of the most original and fun novels I’ve read in a long time! I was completely drawn in from the opening, and absolutely loved the author’s style of writing. It is very descriptive and ‘passionate’, but not too overdone. I don’t often read sexy ‘romance’ from the male POV so this was an interesting change for me. At first it took me some time to warm up to Tucker, but I soon did and was caught up in his sexy, scandalous escapades. Liked the European setting and the dynamic between Tucker and Monica, and The Raven is really weird and that whole storyline is very intriguing.

wow… what an insane book! Holy bananas!! Okay, I don’t even know where to begin because so much happens and I don’t want to give anything away… “Detour Paris” by author Jack Dancer is one of the most original and just flat-out crazy romance/adventures I’ve read in a long time. This is a tough book to categorize easily as it seems to encompass so many different elements – something for everyone, I think. It is interesting reading a book like this from a male author as I usually only read romance from female. There are differences, mainly in the humour and the fact that the lead is totally shameless. There are enough descriptions where you can picture everything perfectly, but not so much that it bogs down the pacing. (5 stars)Steph Coleman — Goodreads; Shelfari; Indie Book Reviewers
I was hooked from the first pages of “Detour Paris” by Jack Dancer, and my interest never wavered for a moment! I loved the creative and strong characters and plots that continued to build and shock and surprise. Just when you think you know what’s happening, something comes along to throw a wrench in it. This is good because I HATE books that are super predictable. And this one definitely isn’t. Although there are some familiar themes and tropes at play, Mr. Dancer brings a fresh perspective and makes it all his own. I’ve read a ton of contemporary fiction over the years so I’m rarely surprised by anything anymore but I can say that this author managed to do it. I appreciated the brisk pace and the descriptive details that really brought the story to life – and the character development is done quite nicely here. Recommend for anyone (adults) who enjoy a well-written, action packed, and sexxxy novel with unexpected twists. (5 stars)Essie Harmon — Goodreads; Shelfari; Indie Book Reviewers
Jack Dancer demonstrates a strong and almost addicting narrative style and great attention to detail in “Detour Paris” that kept me eagerly turning the pages of my Kindle late into the evening. The writing is vivid, and the characters really move the story forward in an entertaining and engaging manner (loved Tucker). Recommend for anyone who wants a fun, fast paced book that will entertain and take you away for a while. It is on the ‘sexy side’ so probably best suited for adults only. Oh, and I love that cover!

This was the first book I’ve read by Jack Dancer, but it certainly won’t the last. He has a gift for writing descriptive and life-like scenes that make us feel like we are really there inside the story and the characters’ heads, as opposed to it all just being “told” to us, as so many rookie authors make the mistake of doing. I like that this book didn’t feel stale or derivative, but instead like a new niche of sexy suspense and adventure that serves well to help diversify a somewhat cookie-cutter genre (in my opinion). Enjoyed most of the characters, and they were decently fleshed out with solid story arcs that built momentum as it went along. (4-5 stars) Brenda Maxwell— Goodreads; Shelfari; Indie Book Reviewers
This book was terrific! Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop until I’d finished the whole thing. It pulls you in from the beginning, and I enjoyed Jack Dancer’s “writing voice”. Funny, but also articulate and well-written and can deliver drama at the right times…. And it’s strange enough at some parts to make you intrigued as to what is going on (The Raven?) and want to keep reading. The interweaving plotlines were well-crafted and not predictable, and the element of the European backdrop added a unique dimension. The characters were all interesting and authentic enough.

Just a heads up - when starting this book make sure you don’t have anywhere you need to be or anything you need to do because you won’t want to stop reading until you’ve finished it all!! Trust me on this! It’s so easy to just sink into this book, because how the author writes it’s like listening to your friend talk (the guy friend who you love but is a bit of a bad boy in a funny, adorable way)… that guy ;) It is entertaining, as a book should be, and I like that it doesn’t take itself too seriously, but there is still some riveting drama that unfolds with the promise of more to come. An interesting and intoxicating combination of humor, danger, adventure, sex, and mystery rolled into one. (4 stars) Anabella Johnson — Goodreads; Shelfari; Indie Book Reviewers
