In the chaos of New York, true love can be hard to find, even when it’s been right under your nose all along…
Love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. After witnessing the fallout of her parents’ divorce, she’s seen the devastation an overload of emotion can cause. The only man she feels comfortable with is her friend Matt—but that’s strictly platonic. If only she found it easier to ignore the way he makes her heart race…
Matt Walker has loved Frankie for years but, sensing how fragile she is beneath her feisty exterior, has always played it cool. But then he uncovers new depths to the girl he’s known forever and doesn’t want to wait a moment longer. He knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can Matt persuade her to trust him with her heart and kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?
Sunset in Central Park is the second book in this series. This is Frankie and Matt's story and happens to be one of my favorite tropes: friends to lovers. Matt and Frankie have known each other for years. Matt has finally decided to make a move on Frankie. But he has some pretty big barriers to climb over in order to get her to be his.
I definitely liked this book more than the first one. All of characters seemed more comfortable with each other. I loved Matt and Frankie. I loved how Matt just took down Frankie's walls brick by slow brick until she couldn't help but fall for him. Frankie lived her whole life thinking love never lasts. Her parents were the worst examples for her. She is reluctant to trust. Even though I loved the romance part of this story, what I loved more was the lesson that Frankie learned after she returned home on Puffin Island. Our perception of past events can often become jaded. That if we only focus on the negative memories of our past, we forget that there were was compassion and happiness as well.
I highly recommend this one. With a sweet romance, a lot of laughs and a cat named Claws, you can't go wrong!
