Anna Kirby is sick of dating. She’s tired of heartbreak. Despite being smart, sexy, and funny, she’s a magnet for men who don’t deserve her.

A week’s vacation in New York is the ultimate distraction from her most recent break-up, as well as a great place to meet a stranger and have some summer fun. But to protect her still-bruised heart, fun comes with rules. There will be no sharing stories, no swapping numbers, and no real names. Just one night of uncomplicated fun.

Super-successful serial seducer Ethan Scott has some rules of his own. He doesn’t date, he doesn’t stay the night, and he doesn’t make any promises.

It should be a match made in heaven. But rules are made to be broken.

 A Week in New York is the first in a series of three novellas.

4.5 Stars

New Year in Manhattan did not disappoint!! It took me exactly where I wanted for Ethan and Anna…but, just took the long way 😉 This was a short and sweet ending to Ethan and Anna’s crazy ride of a love story. Love is complicated, frustrating at times, and amazing, and their story is definitely no exception there.

“I couldn’t really remember myself before her and what I did remember, I didn’t like.”

This part of their story picks up right where the previous one ends. Anna is left wondering where they go from here, when Ethan gets on the plane to head back to New York. Can they make this long distance relationship work?? I know I definitely was concerned!  Maybe more concerned than Anna 😉 And I had a few OMG and WTF moments while reading it. But, all is well and Anna, Ethan, and I are all now very happy.

“My future without him was unthinkable.”

This whole series has been a well written and enjoyable read that I recommend to everyone. The ending of New Year in Manhattan kinda made me say hmmmmmm, but I can’t really explain myself on that one, without ruining the ending.

I will miss their relationship and this whole series is a great choice, especially for those who love to see the unattainable guy fall for the love of his life 🙂 So, guess what?!? This one is highly recommended by this Book Bitch!!

abouttheauthor I write sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind I like to read. My books Faithful and Hopeful are stand-alone novels although there are some overlapping characters. The Empire State Series of novellas starts with A Week in New York.

Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, I love all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so I’ll settle for books and films.

I love the rain, the West Wing, London, days when you don’t have to wear make-up, being alone, being with friends, elephants and champagne.

Hearing from readers is the best thing in the world so get in touch!
