New York, Actually
(From Manhattan with Love #4)
by Sarah Morgan
New York’s most famous agony aunt, she considers herself an expert at relationships…as long as they’re other people’s. The only love of her life is her Dalmatian, Valentine.
A cynical divorce lawyer, he’s hardwired to think relationships are a bad idea. If you don’t get involved, no-one can get hurt. But then he finds himself borrowing a dog to meet the gorgeous woman he sees running in Central Park every morning…
Molly and Daniel think they know everything there is to know about relationships…until they meet each other that is…
His smile promised fun and sin and a thousand things she didn’t dare think about while she had hot tea in her hand.
Apparently my heart, and my defenses, are impenetrable. I’m like the Great Wall of China, only without the tourists.
Run? Do you know how hard it was to walk from the bed to the door? I couldn’t run if you threatened my naked body with a cactus.
I don’t know anyone who would date you unless they were medicated first.
It’s the journalist who should be sorry for asking questions that were none of his damn business. And he was sorry, I’m happy to tell you. I was walking a rescue dog who has a very snarly temper. I didn’t actually allow sharp teeth to snap tight on sensitive flesh but it was a close enough thing to ensure he won’t be back in a hurry. And I might have mentioned in passing that the dog’s favorite food is testicles.
“We’re your urban family.” Cheerful, Fliss poured coffee into mugs. “That means we can argue, be generally annoying, hang around when you really wish we’d leave, drink your coffee, eat your food— do you need me to go on?”
Sarah Morgan continues to delight and entertain with her engaging From Manhattan With Love series. New York Actually introduces new characters to the mix and while I cherished the new additions, I missed the Urban Genie posse. I particularly enjoyed how the characters had conversations with their pets. Molly and Daniel were well suited on several levels; they were both wildly attractive, wealthy, successful, hard working, smart, well educated, avoided relationships, liked dogs, had painful pasts and traumatic losses, buried their emotions, loathed sharing their secrets, and had an instant attraction and phenomenal chemistry. I enjoy Ms. Morgan’s amusing and witty style and quirky yet alluring characters. I don’t think I could ever tire of this series, and thankfully, Manhattan has a large and varied population that could keep her busy for years to come.
