RITA finalist and New York Times bestselling author Ruthie Knox kicks off a steamy new series set in the city that never sleeps—alone, at least. May Fredericks hates New York. Which is fair enough, since New York seems to hate her back. After relocating to Manhattan from the Midwest to be with her long-distance boyfriend, NFL quarterback Thor Einarsson, May receives the world’s worst marriage proposal, stabs the jerk with a shrimp fork, and storms off alone—only to get mugged. Now she’s got no phone, no cash, and no friends. How’s a nice girl supposed to get back to safe, sensible Wisconsin? Frankly, Ben Hausman couldn’t care less. Sure, it’s not every day he meets a genuine, down-to-earth woman like May—especially in a dive in the Village—but he’s recovering from an ugly divorce that cost him his restaurant. He wants to be left alone to start over and become a better man. Then again, playing the white knight to May’s sexy damsel in distress would be an excellent place to start—if only he can give her one very good reason to love New York. Praise for Ruthie Knox “A great new voice in contemporary romance . . . hilarious, heartfelt, and hot.”—New York Times andUSA Today bestselling author Kristan Higgins “Knox writes incredible romance.”—RT Book Reviews “I’ll read anything by Ruthie Knox—her books are always sexy, funny, beautifully poignant, and honest.”—Molly O’Keefe, bestselling author of Crazy Thing Called Love “One of the reasons I so like [Ruthie Knox’s] work is because [her] heroines are women I personally can relate to.”—Dear Author
First of all like always I want to thank NetGalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us a copy of this book so we could bring you this review.
Ok I have to say that I really disliked Ben when I read this book. He is an ass who doesn’t know what he wants from him life. He isn’t willing to listen to anyone and is a stubborn fool. That being said I can understand why he is that way once we meet the person who makes him that way.
May is a bit of a neive character and as someone who’s been to NYC quite a number of times made me worried for her safety. But then gain that was the exact point of her character, the willingness to think everyone is good.
I think it was a great book for the start of a series and look forward to seeing what else happens with these characters in the future books.
