You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?
Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.
In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.
The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.
Carrie Aarons gave me a perfectly written twist of a fairy tale romantic comedy with All the Frogs in Manhattan. I am a big Aarons fan and with each book she surprises me more, this story had me feeling what dating and sexy in the city would be like if I were single.
In this story we have Gemma Morgan, a fashion editor who is not afraid to speak her mind when it comes to how she likes her men and what she wants out of a relationship. With her friends finding love, Gemma is unlucky with dating and finding Mr. Right. Maybe spending time with a man who has commitment issues but is so wonderful in the bedroom, be what she needs til prince charming comes around.
Oliver Anders has no time for dating and relationships, he is 30 yrs old and is a millionaire. He is a really big name in the Tech world and only looks to bring more recognition to his company. When it comes to dating and sex he makes sure the no strings attached is laid on the table. That's until he meets his counterpart, will he be able to let the woman who takes as much as she gives walk away?
All the Frogs in Manhattan is not your typical Rom/Com fairy tale story, the sexual tension and witty banter is kicked up a few notches and the female character has a little alpha to her, which I love. The slow tease of these two characters is sizzling, when they get together the fireworks are felt. This is a 5 Star Carrie Arrons read!!!
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book. She loves spinning tales that include dapper men, women with attitude, and the occasional hunky athlete.
When she isn't in what her husband calls a "writing coma", Carrie is freeing up her jam-packed DVR, starting her latest DIY project, or planning her next travel adventure. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, who is more than happy to watch sports while his wife plots love stories.
