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…
I received this book in exchange for an honest review and would very much like to thank the publishers for this arc.
Oh my where do I start with feedback, this story was like your very own award winning romance movie at your fingertips. It was so romantic and sexy you could feel the heat emanating from the characters from the pages. The sexy scenes were tastefully done and were true to the characters history and personality.
The story is set around 3 girlfriends, a brother and his best friend. Paige, Frankie and Eva have been best friends for such a long time and when they managed to get employment within the same company they couldn’t have been happier. However, when the company they work for is making cutbacks and the girls are left without employment they believe they’ll never share a great working relationship with each other again. Until however, Jake, Paige’s brother Matt’s best friend, encourages the girls to set up their own business. The girls with renewed enthusiasm prepare to work as a team.
Jake and Matt have been best friends forever and when Paige spent a few weeks in hospital to have a lifesaving operation Jake was her saviour. He didn’t mollycoddle her like her brother and parents, he treated her normally and made her smile and forget about her illness. Paige soon became close with Jake and started to develop strong feelings for him. After many years since her operation Paige is still close to Jake but not as close as before, she let her feelings control her head back then and Jake became cooler with her. Paige still finds Jake attractive and her feelings for him haven’t really altered and when the pair start working together on an assignment you can feel the underlying chemistry between them.
The story focuses mainly on Paige and Jake’s journey struggling with the intense chemistry which never fades when they are together. Can their shared history heal Jake’s past which left him heartbroken and confused about the meaning of love?
I loved all the characters in this novel and am looking forward to hearing Eva’s story, she is so lovable and enthusiastic. Frankie’s story would be quite different I believe to Eva’s. Frankie is so anti-men, she is independent and happy with her life at the moment, however, she does share a stronger bond with Paige’s brother than Eva and I am hoping Matt can prove to Frankie that not all men are the same.
Sarah Morgan always creates wonderful, warm characters you can easily relate to and want them as friends. Her description of the book settings are idyllic she sees beauty in all surroundings.
This story left me feeling very contented and wanting more from Paige, Eva, Frankie, Matt and Jake. Excited for more from these much loved characters. 5/5*
