Molly and Daniel think they know everything there is to know about relationships…until they meet each other that is…
I just adored New York, Actually. Told from dual points of view, New York, Actually follows the story of Molly and Daniel. Molly spends her days advising those who are in desperate need of advice when it comes to love. She loves helping others and working them through their problems. One would think since she doles out such good advice, that she must be successful in her romantic relationships as well. Unfortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Molly has had the worst luck when it comes to love and relationships. Now, the only man in her life is her amazing dog, Valentine….When you live and breath divorce cases and settlements like Daniel does, your outlook on love isn’t very good. Sure, you want to go out and have a good time; so long as their are no strings attached. However, when Molly enters Daniel’s life, everything Daniel thought will be turned upside down…..
New York, Actually was a fantastic read. I thought it was smart and incredibly well written. I was pulled into Daniel and Molly’s story right from the very beginning. I loved the interactions between the two of them and thought they had some really great chemistry. I loved that our characters weren’t perfect. They were flawed and had insecurities of their own that they both had to overcome. There were a lot of obstacles that Daniel and Molly were faced with on their journey to happily ever after. But, I have to say, I really enjoyed watching them navigate their way through their relationship, through all the ups and downs. It was great watching these two fall.
New York, Actually is a quick, and easy read. One that can easily be devoured in just one sitting. This book is filled with lots of romance, humor and of course some nice steamy moments. Overall, a really enjoyable read.
