bestselling author Sarah Morgan introduces a sizzling new trilogy about three best friends embracing life—and love—in Manhattan
Cool, calm and competent, events planner Paige Walker loves a challenge. After a childhood spent in and out of hospitals, she's now determined to prove herself—and where better to take the world by storm than in the exhilarating bustle of Manhattan? But when Paige is let go from the job she loves, she must face her biggest challenge of all—going it alone.
Except launching her own events company is nothing compared to hiding her outrageous crush on Jake Romano—her brother's best friend, New York's most in-demand date, and the only man to break her heart. When Jake offers Paige's fledgling company a big chance, their still-sizzling chemistry starts giving her sleepless nights. But can she convince the man who trusts no one to take a chance on forever?
It was agreed that this book took a while to get going – it seemed to spend a lot of time setting up for future books. Those in the group who had read on in the series felt that the setup made the other books much better, but all agreed that this book didn’t really hit it’s stride until about the halfway mark. Felt that the heart issue was pushed really hard considering that it didn’t come into play when the couple finally became intimate; this felt like a big oversight. Some were distracted by some oddities in the language and wondered if the author is American because of the strangeness. But overall it fit the bill of a contemporary romance and provided a nice escape.
