Molly and Daniel think they know everything there is to know about relationships…until they meet each other that is…
This is another fabulous romance tale from the Manhattan With Love series. In fact, it is book 4 and although I haven’t read this series in order, it didn’t matter as the characters are connected not only in this series but also some are from the New York series which I adored.
In this book the focus is on Molly Parker an agony aunt, blogger and author who writes under the alias of Aggie due to a disastrous previous relationship breakup that was publicly aired. This experience has left Molly emotionally broken and feeling such an outcast that she fled to Manhattan. These days the only ‘man’ in her life is Valentine her gorgeous devoted dog and it is clear to see the bond they have.
We are soon introduced to Daniel a sext hot divorce lawyer who is cynical when it comes to long term relationships as he has seen the effects break ups have on the parties and their children. When a chance meeting with Molly, Valentine and Daniel occurs there is an obvious spark between them but it needs both Molly and Daniel to overcome their past experiences and emotions and enjoy the present.
New York Actually is a story of deception, hurt and love with great warm characters and loveable canine friends. It is a real page turner and a lovely feel good book. I have no hesitation in awarding it 5 stars.
