Blog Tour | Sunset in Central Park

Hello Gorgeous!

Today is a day I've been looking forward to ever since I knew that Sarah Morgan was finally releasing the follow up book to Sleepless in Manhattan in the "From Manhattan with Love" series. It's my absolute pleasure to be hosting the book tour today on my blog, and I just can't wait for you to get your hands on this book!

True love can be hard to find. Even when it’s been right under your nose all along…
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?

There is so much love in my heart for this book right now it's hard to know where to begin. Sarah Morgan NEVER fails to bring the most wonderfully storyline to life in the pages of her books (and I've been reading her work since I first read a Mills and Boon swoon-worthy romance by her years ago!). Sunset in Central Park will always hold a special place in my heart for many reasons, least of all the memories it evokes for me and my own romantic life.

The cover is just simply gorgeous, and the second I saw it I just had one of those happy moments when a treasured memory visits you. I marked the occasion by messaging a special someone saying "Guess what the cover reminds me of?" - granted it took us revisiting the place for it to all fall into place, but that's part of the magic really. 

So in this book we meet up with Frankie, Eva and Paige again, although the focus is more on Frankie and Paige's brother Matt this time around. We still get our tastes teased with Paige and Eva's life, sadly Eva's grandmother passes away leaving Eva heartbroken and grief stricken, something I think a lot of us can empathise with. Paige is still getting her early nights with Jake ;-) and Eva is there to make us laugh as she talks about her non existent sex life - proven by the expired condom in her purse! There's always plenty of fun to be had with these three Urban Genie ladies! 

Frankie hates romance and love and weddings and intimacy and sex - or so she thinks. Having been faced with bad experiences in the past and a mother who left scars on her that even a pair of glasses won't hide, she has to come to terms with her past so she can fully move into the future she deserves.

Matt thinks Frankie is gorgeous without her glasses as well as with them, he sees the real Frankie and he adores what he sees. He finally convinces her to go on a non-date. Their first non-date is in Central Park where they walk, talk and fight the chemistry. I absolutely ADORED this scene as for my first date I went to a park in our local area and my handsome guy actually said on our first date that walking there with me reminded him a little of Central Park (awwhhh!) :-) Frankie and Matt relax into each others company, even if at first she was nervous and said she might spill her coffee if she had one because she was shaking with nerves (Heads up Frankie, You did great girl, whereas I actually did spill my coffee through nerves on our first date!) and Frankie realised she loved spending time with Matt, and had the perfect date as the sun set in Central Park. But was it enough to heal the pain from her past???

Like all relationships, it's a case of trial and error, acceptance and compromise, and Matt is determined to never hurt Frankie. Frankie has to work through a lot of issues, and face challenges with Matt wanting to be there by her side to help support her, will she let him? Or will she let herself believe everything Mr D Minus told her years ago? 

I urge you to grab yourself a copy now by pre-ordering it for 14th July, and discover how it all ends for Frankie and Matt. Sunset in Central Park will leave you breathless with a smile plastered on your face that will have everyone guessing. 

So Sarah has done it again, writing yet another bestseller and already I'm hungry for Miracle on 5th Avenue where we get to peek closer into Eva's wardrobe... I mean life! 

Thank you Sarah, for writing a book that will forever be in my heart as it captured the memories of my very own first date in our own personal version Central Park, that has a bridge almost identical to the one on the cover. You have become a part of our life that I will forever hold dear. Mwah!
