Review: Sunset in Central Park

Review: Sunset in Central Park, by Sarah Morgan, 4 stars

✩✩

After witnessing the fallout of her parent’s divorce, love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. The only man in her life 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, has always played it cool. Until he uncovers new depths to the girl he’s known forever, and doesn’t want to wait a moment longer.
Matt knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can he persuade her to kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: July 2016

Mature content: yes

Review: Sunset in Central Park is book two in the From Manhattan With Love series by Sarah Morgan. I found it a bit strange to be reading book two in a series and find out that the story happens before that of book one (Evan and Lucas, from book one, haven't met yet).

I did find the writing a bit repetitive, and Frankie is a hard to love character - she lets her past control her whole life, and when she finally changes the change is so sudden and drastic that it sounds a bit unrealistic. Matt acts like the adult in the relationship - strong, patient, caring, and she acts most of the time like a spoiled brat (though, with her past, I would expect her to be anything but).

Other than that, Sunset in Central Park is an entertaining read and a sweet romance. I liked the fact that Frankie and Matt were old friends before becoming lovers - it's and interesting twist on an otherwise predictable plot, and a refreshing change from those insta-love romance novels.  Recommended.




Happy Wednesday,
