SYNOPSIS:

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 herselfโ€”and where better to take the world by storm than in the exhilarating bustle of Manhattan? But when Paige is let go from the job she loves, she must face her biggest challenge of allโ€”going it alone. 

Except launching her own events company is nothing compared to hiding her outrageous crush on Jake Romanoโ€”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?

 

 

REVIEW:

This is the third book that I’ve read by Sarah Morgan and it does not disappoint. Ms. Morgan’s books do not only revolved around love but with life as a whole. The strong bond of friendship of the characters, their family and of course love life is what really hooked me with her books. I loved its concept and the flow of the plot. Each character have different stories to tell and I’m so glad that Ms. Morgan took her time dealing with each character in different books.

After reading the second book of this trilogy, without knowing that it is the second book, I’m quite familiar with the characters and their issues so I’m evaluating their actions in this first book. Yet the first have so much to offer same as the second book. I love every character in this trilogy and I cared deeply about their lives. They own have their own issues which do not get in the way with the bond of each and every one of them.

Moreover, what I like about this book is that the love story was not an insta-love. There is a history between Jake and Paige that would surely make a mark and would make their relationship, whether love or friendship, stronger and more realistic. However, I’m fond of Frankie more than I am of Paige. If the situation would be reversed and I read this before the second book, I think the outcome would be the same. There is something about the plot of this book and the character themselves that gives me the feeling of uneasiness. Yet they are likable and fun to read. What more is a feel like it lacks something that would seal the deal of a solid 5 stars rating for me and only landed with 4 stars.

Highly recommending this trilogy. The third book will come out in November this year so there is more time to catch up with this trilogy. Also do read the novella which is Midnight at Tiffany’s it would be a good preparation when you enter the world of Paige, Frankie and Eva.
