Manhattan by Rooni Cooper is a book I read without any pre-conceived notions. I haven’t read Ronni’s debut novel, Rock Chicks, so I went into the book blind. Ronni has made the switch from the music scene to the writing scene (although you won’t find her on the music scene under Ronni Cooper as I’m almost sure it’s a pseudonym) and I was massively impressed with Manhattan. There’s something so satisfying about being surprised by a book, and I found Manhattan to be a fast-paced novel that was ver ...more

It could have done with upping the glamour part than the "special VIP treatment" thing ..on the bright side it was loaded wid ambition..'one day', 'no fear', 'keep calm' mantras could be a major help sometimes..it was a wild ride into the clubbing world..i truly believe that the books we read are major fragments of the reality we live in.. Nd this book was oozing with the lifestyle of our "stars"..One day....... Our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them..

Sometimes, I come across a book that I am sure I will enjoy, but I'm a little reluctant to start. Theres never really any reasoning behind it, other than thinking that I am not going to enjoy it as much as I perhaps would other books in my TBR pile. Well, before I picked it up and started to read, Manhattan was one of those books. Once I started reading, I soon realised that the old saying of "you should never judge a book by its cover", could not have run

Kun on lukenut Rock Chicksn, tätä ei voi kirjoittaa vertaamatta siihen. Sen verran samanlainen on jo lähtöasetelma: päähenkilöinä kolme nuorta naista, seksiä, huumeita, pahuudenpesiä ja kasarirockia.


Tässä, kuten genren kirjoissa usein, on selkeää intertekstuaalisuutta Rock Chicksin kanssa. Kaikki tapahtuu samassa maailmassa. Itse asiassa Stavien bändi esiintyy samalla keikalla kuin Rock Chiksin bändi Steel Spikes, ja aiemman kirjan Suurella Pahalla Antagonistillakin on osansa juonessa.

After winning this in a blog competition at Christmas, I have finally got around to reading it!
I have spent the most part of today (Saturday) reading this, and I have really enjoyed it. Once I properly got into the story and the characters, I was able to read it quite fast. It was written mainly as flashbacks to the three women's lives, and how they end up at a particular point at the end of the story.
I felt it was well written, but also rather shocking in places - some of the things that happe

What an awesome and well thought out novel. Ronni Cooper is raw and riveting. She tells it like it is. Each of her characters were unique and relatable. This was a nice change from bubbly chick-lit like Emily Giffin.

Told from the view point of three different characters, she ties everything together nicely and makes for an epic outcome. I can't wait to read her other novel "Rock Chicks"

The book is set in the New York nightclub scene following the lives of three woman, Stevie (the rock star), Mei-Lin (a high class prostitute) and Raine (a professional club-goer set on revenge). I really enjoyed all three of the interlocking stories and felt empathy for all the characters. A good read for those who like glitz and glamour with a dash of harsh reality.

Reminiscent of Tilly Bagshawe.

Fun read, lots of action. Good characters who interact in an interesting way. A nice Asian tang to spice it up. The story came together well and ended nicely.

I was looking for some candy to read in bite sized pieces and this was ideal. Nothing challenging. Juicy storyline of poor girls with ambition, pushing through obstacles and getting revenge. Solid three stars, doubt it will linger long for me.

A fun read. Three ladies claw their way back from the horror of their early teen years to set up the hottest night club in New York. Enjoyed.

Every now and then, a girl needs a good smut read, and this one was exactly what I wanted!

Sexy, scandalous, intense... exactly as advertised. And very clearly written by a British woman. A win/win!

Loved it! Love how the characters from Rock Chicks made a few brief appearances too.
Ronni Cooper writes awesome stories. And it's so satisfying when everyone gets their happy ending.
