My own copy

The blurb:

What if the person who broke your heart, is the only one who can help you find your future?
Great friends. Amazing Apartment. An incredible job. Paige has ticked off every box on perfect New York life checklist. Until disaster strikes and instead of shimming further up the career ladder, Paige is packing up her desk.

Her brother’s best friend Jake might be the only person who can help her put her life back together. He also happens to be the boy she spent her teen years pining after, and Paige is determined not repeat her past mistakes. But the more time she spends with Jake, the more Paige realises the one thing that was missing from her world all along. The perfect New York love story…

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

I’m a huge Sarah Morgan fan and when I saw that her next series is set in New York I got really excited. I’m going to NYC soon, so it’s a bit more special.

The first book of the series is called Sleepless in Manhattan and it follows Paige. Paige has a great life in NYC, she lives in Brooklyn and loves her job. Her best friends Eva and Frankie work at the same company, everything is great, until they all lose their jobs…

Her brother Matt is there to comfort her and with him is his best friend Jake Romano. Jake is very successful and can help her, he gives her the idea of how to start over. The problem about that?! It’s Jake, her first love and forever crush Jake.

Paige fell head over heels for Jake when she was a teenager, but after she was honest about her feelings to him, he rejected her. Only after a while in the book, we actually learn why…

The fab thing about this book is that we not only got to see Paige’s side of the story, but also Jake’s. Yes, he might have had a different woman every night, but his real feelings are deep and real for only one person. His past and some other circumstances made him the man he is today and made him reject Paige. His feelings are still here though.

The two of them get to spend a lot of time now, because Jake is helping Paige and her friends with their new business. The more time they spend together, the closer they get and the more they realise that old feelings never die.

I loved reading about the two of them together. In my eyes they are perfect for each other!!! Their chemistry is electric and Sarah includes some passionate scenes as well. But where will it lead? What if Paige tells him she loves him?! How will he react?! Well, read this fabulous story!!!!

We get to explore New York through this story, with Sarah talking about some fabulous places.

The friendships portrayed in this book are incredible. First of all the three women, who are inseparable and always there for each other, but also Matt and Jake being best friends, Matt and Paige as siblings and the five of them as a group. I want to part of their group please! Fun movie nights, great views on the balcony, Italian food at Maria Romano’s restaurant, breakfast together and much more.

I couldn’t put this book down. It might seem like a normal rom com, like every other, but it’s not! Sarah takes it to a whole new level with her writing. It’s so vivid, passionate and full of life, I felt like being there with the characters. I adore the storyline, it flows beautifully and the characters? Well, every single one of them is awesome! They are all great personalities and very unique. I can’t wait to dive into book two of the series and find out what Sarah has in store for the other characters, especially Paige’s brother Matt.
