In the chaos of New York, true love can be hard to find, even when it's been right under your nose all along…
Love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. After witnessing the fallout of her parents' divorce, she's seen the devastation an overload of emotion can cause. The only man she feels comfortable with 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, sensing how fragile she is beneath her feisty exterior, has always played it cool. But then he uncovers new depths to the girl he's known forever and doesn't want to wait a moment longer. He knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can Matt persuade her to trust him with her heart and kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?
Morgan whips up a sweet tale using the backdrop of spirited New York City in her second From Manhattan with Love contemporary (after Sleepless in Manhattan). Events planner Frankie Cole has resigned herself to being forever single, believing that all relationships are doomed. She wears eyeglasses that she doesn't need in order to repel any man who might be interested in her. This strategy works until Matt Walker, a friend of a friend, reenters her life, and Frankie finds herself incredibly drawn to him. The author does a wonderful job of depicting Matt's point of view, making it clear that he's attracted to Frankie even more because of her superfluous eyewear. Frankie is an adorable and lovable character whom readers will passionately champion. She's amusing and cute as she tries her best to avoid the man who sets her heart afire, and the warm and clever way Matt pursues her will make any reader swoon. Morgan's novel delivers the classic sweep-you-off-your-feet romantic experience.
