Sunset in Central Park – by Sarah Morgan

Original Cover

The blurb:

In the chaos of New York, true love can be hard to find, even when it's been right under your nose all along…

Love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. After witnessing the fallout of her parents' divorce, she's seen the devastation an overload of emotion can cause. The only man she feels comfortable with is her friend Matt—but that's strictly platonic. If only she found it easier to ignore the way he makes her heart race…

Matt Walker has loved Frankie for years but, sensing how fragile she is beneath her feisty exterior, has always played it cool. But then he uncovers new depths to the girl he's known forever and doesn't want to wait a moment longer. He knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can Matt persuade her to trust him with her heart and kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?

My Opinion:

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

Yay, book #2 in the Manhattan with Love series!!! I absolutely adored book #1 and fell in love with the characters. In this book it’s Frankie’s and Matt’s turn. Matt was my favourite in book 1 already ;). the story kicks off where Paige's and Jake's has ended. they have great news as well, but let's focus on Matt and Frankie now. Frankie is insecure and shy, especially when it comes to love, romance, relationships and sex. it's all because of what happened in her past, between her parents. Matt has been in love with her for a long time and he is determined to cack her shell. She slowly opns up to him, but is still scared. She can be herself with him and everybody sees that, especially Paige and Eva. The two of them get their coverage in the story as well, which is lovely. Matt gets Frankie to go back to Puffin Island, which has always scaed her, but it' s not so bad after all and she can finally be true to zeself. But is that enough for their relationship to grow deeper and be par of their furure.m I loved reading about Puffin Island again, because it covered all the charafters of that series too, it was fab to cach up with them.

It was also great to read about Paige and Jake again. Their story was wonderful.

We get to explore New York through this story once more, with Sarah talking about some fabulous places, especially Central Park.

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! We got to read about both Matt's and Fankie's feelings, which was beautiful, because they belong together, but went through a different journey to get there. One thing I absoltely adored and admired in this story were the chapter openings. Every chapter started with a quote frim either Franke, Paige or Eva, describing love and ither situations and perfectly fitting each chapter, without giving away too much, so sweet.

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 three of the series and find out what Sarah has in store for Eva. Sunset in Central Park is an amazingly written story by a very talented author, who hooks you with her words!!!
