Follow the story of Tucker Blue, a man who finds himself a bachelor once again during mid life. Already dating a pretty steamy stewardess, he meets the sexy Monica Reyes by chance during a layover.

Readers’ Favorite - Four Stars For Detour Paris Detour Paris is a racy romance book by author Jack Dancer, and the first book in the Detour Paris series. The tale begins with our central character Tucker, a man driven totally by lust and physical attraction to pretty much every woman he meets. At the story’s opening, he finds himself suddenly, violently captivated by one beauty in particular, Monica, just as he’s about to board an airplane. After some aggravation, this frequent flier finds himself bumped off the intended plane and boarding a flight to Paris instead to make his connecting flight. From here, the aforementioned detour leads Tucker and Monica into a passionate world where some unexpected thrills and dark twists threaten to thwart their burgeoning affair. So begins a light mystery thriller with plenty of bedroom moments between our leads.
For readers who can maintain the light hearted spirit of Detour Paris and itsmany plot twists, it will be a fun, fast paced read. There are plenty of erotic scenes to keep fans of that genre happy, and the story that takes place in between is always well described and full of action. The somewhat scatter-brained and sex obsessed Tucker Blue has plenty of banter and sharp dialogue that entertained me throughout the read, while Monica Reyes plays the femme fatale role in a charming, if somewhat idealised manner. Overall, Detour Paris was a well penned frolic with the right balance of plot and sexcapades, and will please an audience looking for a fun, casual story from the male point of view. Reviewed by K.C.

Readers’ Favorite - Four Stars For Detour Paris Detour Paris, Book 1, dives right in with action and tension as Tucker Blue experiences a bit of fairy tale romance...only it's not with the girl he's dating at the time. Monica Reyes is a beauty, but it's her mind and sense of excitement that arrest Blue from the start. They engage in an interesting little affair, traipsing across Europe in the unintended titular Detour.
Jack Dancer writes in an uncommonly well-written first person present tense. While this tense has become more popular lately, I always find it quite jarring compared to the more traditional third person present tense. The benefits of present are that you feel as though you are experiencing the events right as they are happening, which really helped contribute to both the romantic and suspenseful sections of Detour Paris. Conversely, I did get sort of disoriented by the stream-of-consciousness pace and thought process of the main character. It was a good, trying experience that made you feel accomplished once you'd finished.
Plot-wise, I'm really excited to pick up Detour Paris in book two, which apparently continues right where book one left off. The pacing of book one was rapid and intense, moving from moment to moment with speed and not much time for reveling in thoughts or emotions. I don't recommend reading this on its own, as there are several threads that I desperately need to follow to make sure that the story ends how I want it to! (Or not, that's part of the greatness of this series!) Jack Dancer is a talented writer and I look forward to getting a chance to experience more of his work. Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel
