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 in the exhilarating bustle of Manhattan? But when Paige is let go from 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?
Sleepless in Manhattan, was a cute friends-to-lovers, rom-com. It was light-hearted and low on the angst scale.
Paige Walker spent her youth in and out of hospitals and under the watchful and protective eye of her family. As an adult, she was determined to prove she was capable of taking care of herself. She’d had one love, and that was her brother’s best friend, Jake Romano.
Jake Romano was a highly successful businessman. An all-around nice guy, he was charming, protective and funny. He caused women to swoon and hearts to flutter. But his past taught him love wasn’t forever.
I had a small issue with the length of the book. To me, there was too much internal dialogue and struggle, that at times, it felt like filler.
There were many things I loved about this book (aside from the story and main characters); the chapter headings, Eva and Frankie and the banter between Jake and Paige.
❝Honey, my ego is bulletproof. you couldn’t take it down with a rocket launcher.❞
I enjoyed this author’s voice. I am disappointed that I have not heard of Sarah Morgan before now. But this will definitely not be the last book I read from her.
