  • Elizabeth
    Vanessa Fewings writes with an elegance and sophistication that elevates her books to another level and Perfume Girl is no exception. The subject matter was fascinating but that alone was not what made the book so enjoyable. It was the variety from the insight into Cuba, rescuing sea life, especially turtles, and Caine as well as the trauma that Astor and Raquel had both suffered as children that made the book so interesting. It was sexy, hot and...

    ARC received for an honest reviewIt has been a while since I have read a Vanessa Fewings novel, however I know was going to be reading a wonderful story.Oh, how my heart hurt for Raquel. Betrayal after betrayal has left her teetering the edge, and you are just waiting for the other shoe to drop.Astor - well, he could have come across as a complete ar$e, but he didn't do that for me. Sure, he is arrogant, however right from the start I was able to...

    let me just start this review by saying that this cover is AMAZING! I just love it to death and it is fitting for the story. Vanessa has done an amazing job at telling this story set in South Beach which is beautiful and full of wonderful beaches and shops.This story had me on a roller coaster of a ride. I did not know what to feel at times because I started out feeling sad then I got mad then I was laughing at some of the antics Raquel did. Poor...

    Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. Vanessa Fewings' writing pulled me in. I was instantly hooked. I freaking adored both Astor and Raquel. Astor is very swoony. He's intelligent, caring, protective, a philanthropist with a upbringing that strengthen him and somewhat broke him. His background was very interesting. Raquel is smart, witty. Even though she has been betrayed and knocked down, it doesn't get her down. She's determined and strong ...

    I loved this book! Could not put it down, I was so intrigued to see how this story would go & it did not disappoint. It was not your typical smut book. The story was well written & the twist in the ending was not what I predicted.I actually shed some tears with it which is very unusual for me. Happy tears!! Loved the 2 characters & Astor Beauregard is not what you first think. He has many layers & is very intriguing.Overall Ms Fewings you have no...

  • Lauren Luman
    Early edition provided by author. I absolutely loved Perfume Girl. It was riveting and sexy and so interesting. I love when I can actually learn something from what I read, and when you take the time to read it, you'll see what I mean.This is sort of an enemies to lovers story, if I had to label the trope, but it's truly more than that. We see these characters overcome trauma from their past and find the light in each other. Their chemistry is bl...

    Perfume Girl is an innovative gem of a story. It's beautifully paced and portrayed. The unravelling of the mystery is expertly crafted and the romance is profound.Astor is a well known perfumer with a mysterious past. He is sinfully sexy and is not known for sticking to relationships on a long term basis. He comes across as being a player.Raquel is the proud owner of Perfume Girl. She has been creating perfumes since she was a little girl and now...
  • Mary

    Astor ~ Owner of a renowned cologne empire, conceited and arrogant but sinfully sexy. Raquel ~ Beautiful, talented chemist, betrayed by her cheating husband, recently divorced and trying to save her livelihood, her perfume business, a small boutique called Perfume Girl. A stolen formula brings Raquel and Astor together in this exquisite story of betrayal, love, passion and survival. Flawlessly written, the words flow beautifully from page to page...
  • Madelyn Barrios
    Vanessa Fewings has done it again. I LOVED Perfume Girl. Astor and Raquel's story pulled me in right from the beginning. I loved to see how their relationship grew and how their feelings for one another kept growing stronger even as they tried to fight it. Raquel's most prized creation is stolen and she is determined to figure out who took it. In her quest to find out she started working at the House of Beauregard thinking that they were involved...

    Raquel's on the verge of losing everything. She's in the process of a nasty divorce from her cheating husband, her perfume boutique is probably going to have to be sold so she can give half of it to her asshole husband, and now the latest creation she's been working on is gone. What's she to do? She takes steps to get that scent back and infiltrates her biggest competitor - The House of Beauregard. When she meets one of its owners, Astor, suddenl...

    An intoxicating romance with delicate undertones of suspense carried in an aromatic touch of betrayal -Fewings has crafted a potent romance with Perfume GirlRaquel's world has been turned upside down - Damien her soon to be ex-husband (who is a dirty rat's backside IMO) is cashing in on their divorce.

However, you soon discover Raquel has fire in her veins and is determined to not give up on her passion. Astor is the sexy, mysterious brood who owns House of Beauregard, who hires h...

    Book started a little slow for me, took a little to get into it but oh my goodness once i did i could not put it down. So if you don't have a chunk of time to devote to this book you might want to wait to read it because once you start it you are done for until you finish it. It has a little of everything, it has the romance, drama, mystery, suspense and erotic scenes that will leave you H.O.T.! you will even learn a little about perfume making a...
  • Sue
    Another Vanessa Fewings hit for me. A world that we don't usually read about but that intrigues the heck out of me. The perfume world is as cutthroat as any other business. Raquel has it all...or so she thinks. But when things go sideways in her personal life, she attempts to make a life for herself outside of her little world. Generally cautious and a definite life planner, she finds herself caught up in a mystery. She also finds herself outside...

    From the moment I started reading this I could not put it down. I was hooked from the start and needed to know what was next. The dynamic between Astor and Raquel works perfectly and I quickly fell in love with both of them.Perfume Girl is well-written, addictive and exciting. I can't wait to see what is next from Vanessa.Arc provided by author.

    Loved the story of Raquel and Astor. Astor is such a selfless person which in turn makes his love for Raquel even stronger. Their love seems to grow with every chapter. Thanks Vanessa I always enjoy so much you writing
  • books are love
    Vanessa Fewings draws you in with her writing and characters but keeps you in the story with the plot and romance. You begin with a blast from the past to show why Raquel is who she is now. We see the pain and heartache she has and how it shapes her and guides her along the way. Her present isn’t beginning rosey either. Her ex is a douchecanoe and truly didn’t deserve her. Just saying. She is too kind, sweet and just more. So to have her goin...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports. True passion can't be bottled. A stolen formula. A seductive suspect. A dangerous romance.

    Rating: 4.5 StarsIn our opening chapter, Raquel Wren seems to use a big word for a young girl. Thank goodness that my book connects with a dictionary. It’s then I realize that I know the object as one thing so maybe not so big word for her after all. Her beginning is not a good one but not every child has one – just makes the character seem more real.Astor Beauregard doesn’t seem to care about others feelings. He seems to expect others to l...

    4.5 StarsVanessa Fewings is one of those authors...when you start one of her books, you know you are going to go on one heck of a ride. It's going to be interesting, it's going to have twists and turns you are not expecting, and it is going to be full of great settings, steamy romance, and just enough intrigue to keep you interested and guessing.Raquel and Astor check all of the boxes. Their chemistry is amazing, their attraction is both interest...
