Series: From Manhattan With Love, Book #1
Author: Sarah Morgan

Release Date:  May 31, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Urban Fiction/ Romance



USA TODAY bestselling author Sarah Morgan introduces From Manhattan with Love, a sparkling new trilogy about three best friends embracing life—and love—in New York 

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 Manhattan? But when Paige loses 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?




FUN, SWEET and TOTALLY  manic? Really?! Yes, but in a good way. The girls, Paige, Eve and Frankie in Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan, are best friends and just enjoying life in the big city, until they went into work one day and came out unemployed.  Then the fun begins. Well, I can't really say that, because from the very first page, Sarah had given us a glimpse of how fun these girls are. Different in every way, but complementary as well, their little commute to work in the morning reminded me so much of life in NYC. Reading Sleepless in Manhattan brought back so many great memories, like enjoying the summer months with Shakespeare in the Park, relaxing in Central Park, strolling along the High Line, bustling through Grand Central Terminal, and having a nice coffee moment in the quaint areas of Brooklyn.

Also sweet in the romance department.  Though this story mainly focuses on Paige and Jake, we catch glimpses of what's to come for other potential couples in the series.  Yes, the romance was sweet, but what I find most endearing was the friendship these girls have. Relationships aren't just about romance.  True friendship stands the test of time and life's calamity, not to mention telling you the way it is. I miss my best friend every time I read these girls' easy banter, as well as the loving ones.  The emotional moments of friendship, plus the romance really took flight, enticing me to continue on in the series, because I've fallen for these girls.  I want to be their friend. There's also the empowerment one feels as these girls find the courage to build towards their dreams, individually and collectively. Sleepless in Manhattan may render you sleepless for a few hours until you breeze through this book, but I must warn you, the next one in the series, Sunset in Central Park doesn't release until August! Yikes!
