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 has one of my favorite tropes in romance. The sister and the brother's best friend who have grown up together finally admit that they belong together. I was really looking forward to reading Paige and Jake's story. Unfortunately, I really didn't love this book as much as I wanted to.
For me, the pacing of the story was kind of slow. In the first hundred pages, not a lot happens. I didn't really buy into Jake and Paige together. Jake isn't into commitment. He is a jerk to Paige through most of the book. It got tiring after a while. Why would she pine for someone like that? Paige was also a bit too independent for my taste and made some really dumb decisions.
The one thing that I did like about the book was the friendship between the three women. Their relationship was fun and endearing. I liked Eva and Frankie the most and they almost make me want to read the other books in the series. Hopefully, their stories will be a bit more exciting, because this one was just really wasn't.
