May Fredericks hates New York. Which is fair enough, since New York seems to hate her back. After relocating to Manhattan from the Midwest to be with her long-distance boyfriend, NFL quarterback Thor Einarsson, May receives the world’s worst marriage proposal, stabs the jerk with a shrimp fork, and storms off alone—only to get mugged. Now she’s got no phone, no cash, and no friends. How’s a nice girl supposed to get back to safe, sensible Wisconsin?

Frankly, Ben Hausman couldn’t care less. Sure, it’s not every day he meets a genuine, down-to-earth woman like May—especially in a dive in the Village—but he’s recovering from an ugly divorce that cost him his restaurant. He wants to be left alone to start over and become a better man. Then again, playing the white knight to May’s sexy damsel in distress would be an excellent place to start—if only he can give her one very good reason to love New York.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 18 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I promised myself that I will read books by new-to-me authors. I’m grateful for my acquaintance’s recommendation to read this novel by Ms. Knox because I enjoyed this very much! I love the banter between the two characters and both of the main characters’ journey to rediscovery and growth.

ARC Review | Unveiling Chaos (Unveiling #2) by Jeannine Allison

Unveiling Chaos is the second standalone in the Unveiling series told in alternating POVs. You don’t have to necessarily read the first to read this book, but it would be nice to read the first book since  most of the characters were introduced there. There is a subplot involving alcoholism […]

It’s so interesting to watch people bid over something without a clue what’s inside the storage unit. Skye Montgomery finds herself in the same situation when her new friend, Ella, drags her to a storage auction in hopes of finding […]
