This is the third book in this series and I loved them all. After admitting their feelings for each other Anna and Ethan try a long distance relationship but the emotional pull is stronger and Anna decides to make the move to New York to be with Ethan. Both on shaky grounds, Anna skeptical because of her bad luck with past relationships and trust issues and Ethan just because he's never done the "relationship thing" so can they move forward and build on their deep and growing love for each other ...more

4 - No ambiguity. No promises. No bullshit. Stars!

Louise Bay has literally taken all the good plot points and character traits from some of my favorite romances and turned them into the Empire State Series.

There wasn’t much new or unusual about the story, (and this review is for all three instalments) but what I liked about Anna and Ethan, was that they were both established adults in their own rights. Anna was as confident as Ethan, and the drama and storyline was solely focused on them rat
Would have rated this higher if Ethan hadn't been such a loser.

I was really fed up with him not more of a man and really pursuing Anna the way he wanted. It wasn't enough anymore that we could read his POV and see how much he loved her and wanted to be with her. I needed him to be a man of action and after 3 different occasions where he pussied out I was pretty much over him. the end of book 1 he really wants to see her again even after she goes back to London but isn't man enough to say an

Are the words enough?

There was something about this series that just felt right for me. It could have been that the timing was right. It might have been that each instalment didn't take too long to read. I could take a break between each one for however long I needed or wanted. No stalking of the author was needed. The "cliffy's" didn't make me feel like killing anyone because I was left on the ledge. The reading was at my pace and on my terms. The beauty of coming late to the party and having t

****book provided to me by author for my honest review***

Another great book by Louise Bay. This is the final book in Ethan and Anna's story. Ethan has to return back to New York to handle his New York clients. Anna is staying in London to work at her job. The minute Ethan leaves on the airplane Anna is regretting not going with him.

I don't want to give anything away in this story but I loved it. It was a great romantic book that has two people who want the same things yet afraid to ask for it.

So after reading the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy I feel that the erotic fiction books, has exploded, they are everywhere to be find, in every form and in every length. I found this in the IBook store and it was cheap, for all 3 books, they didn't really cost anything, so I thought why not.
I didn't expect anything at all because I've never heard of it before, but I find myself really 50-50 about it. I feel like Bay's writing is very basic but she's really not that good at writing kissing and se
a lovely ending to the trilogy a quick read to pass some time. Again i was expecting a longer ending and i stated liking the characters but i think that instead of makingg it a trilogy it should have been one book story. if you have time check it out

I just finished reading the book and all i have to say is that this book is brilliantly amazing!!

I love Ethan from the beginning,he never fell in love with another woman and now he found his master!!Anna from the other hand had some bad relationships,she's a magnet for men who don't deserve her but then she met Ethan!!They made some rules but rules are made to be broken.In this book their previous rules no longer apply but i really like the bullshit rule between him and Anna!!

The conclusion of the Trilogy could not have ended differently!

Now, that it is finally over, I can tell that I really enjoyed that Ethan-the hot, sexy, alpha, don’t do sleepovers male, fell in love and had no doubt admitting his feelings!
Anna on the other hand, she might doubt herself, but not her feelings for Ethan!
I loved the series, and I had a great time reading it.

Thanks Louise Bay for such a wonderful story!!!

good lord, I love this series so much! Louise Bay is fast becoming one of my favourite authors, she's definitely, firmly in my top 10!
i honestly don't know how to put into words how fabulous this book is. just the most perfect, heart meltingly adorable ending to a modern day love story! While it is cute and gushy and lovey dovey it is also sexy as hell. Best of both worlds.
That is all!

New Year in Manhattan brings us the third and final part to Ethan and Anna’s story.

We’re brought on the journey of Ethan and Anna’s relationship as she travels to stay with Ethan. We get to see how had it is when they’re apart and how easy it is for them to be together but we’re also shown how insecure both characters can be. They’re second guessing a lot and it’s sad to read.

It’s been interesting reading this finale of their relationship.

I am a bit disappointed :( This just not for me, I didn't enjoy. A little bit too much time in the bed and nothing more happening in the story. Not a memorable reading. I am sorry. But also it was cute sometimes.

If I had to sum of the The Empire State Trilogy in one word - it would be "perfection". I have never fallen in love with a series as much as I did with this one. Anna and Ethan had me falling in love with them from page one. Louise Bay has a huge fan in me. I stalked everyday to see when the next installment was coming out.

New Year In Manhattan is the final installment ( I really don't want this to be it. Please Louise, I need more!!). Ethan and Anna need to make a decision and figure o

**This review contains spoilers if you haven’t read The Empire State series.**

The Empire State Trilogy was a fun, HOT series and I’m kind of sad to see it over. New Year in Manhattan is the last book in the series and might have been my favorite out of the three.
New Year in Manhattan picks up where Autumn in London left off with Ethan headed back to New York and Anna still in London but both commented to each other. I just loved Ethan even more in this book; he was so swee
In this final part of Ethan and Anna's story we get lots more smut, some full on romance and some lively banter as Anna returns to New York to spend New Year with Ethan.

It was a sweet and enjoyable read, but it was essentially an extended epilogue to the second part. I was hoping for the annoying Lucy to get her comeuppance or for something to happen with someone from their past, or even an explanation as to why Ethan used to be such a chronic commitment phobe, but, nope, nothing. It didn't actu

It seemed to me that at the end of the book was missing one chapter or epilogue.Why this good series ended like that. The end could have been better. It was a little disappointing.

I can't even ... what the ... ARE YOU SERIOUS?!

I'm done. So done. This is ... so done!

This only gets two stars, because I promised myself one stars only for stories I actually dfn (which rarely happens). Which I should have done in the first part, but silly me.

I'm not even going into detail, because I don't want to waste any more time on Ethan and Anna's story.

This trilogy was such a waste of time, I can't even ... so done!

Ahhh!! Finally we get the conclusion of Ethan and Anna and it was PERFECT!! I absolutely loved the first two of this Empire State series and was so excited to get my hands on this one!

We pick up right where book two left off; Ethan returns to New York while Anna stays in London. The distance is super hard for both of them, though they both have a hard time expressing it. Once they finally open their lines of communication, happiness ensues.

And don’t forget the hotness!

Wow... This last book in this series was good. I just loved Ethan. I love how consistent he is. I loved how he changed for Anna. I just loved how he expressed himself to her.
I just loved him! Ethan believed in them right from the start.
But... Anna...oh

Anna really knows how to frustrate me. She really is a negative person. And only thinks of herself. Her feelings about marriage and the way she just couldn't let her self go with Ethan was extremely frustrating. She was constan

This series was FABULOUS and this book was the PERFECT ending. I cannot express how much I love Ethan and Anna. Louise Bay brought these characters to life in these three novellas. We watch Ethan go from a one and done womanizer (who is very upfront that he won’t be calling) to a head over heels, in love and devoted boyfriend, something he didn’t think he could ever be. For never having done it before (being a boyfriend), he certainly is very good at it. And that’s not the only thing he’s good a ...more

I just finished New Year in Manhattan and I just loved it! What a way to end it. It is a series so you have to read Part One - A Week in New York and Part Two - Autumn in London to get a good feeling for the characters. Anna and Ethan are lovers and are trying to make it work, now on different continents. They promised each other no bullshit but what happens when one is thinking of marriage but the other is not to keen on the idea. Will they be able to have a future together?

This is the third and final book from the Empire State Series by Louise Bay and what a journey Anna and Ethan have taken.

They have gone from point blank refusal and denial of any kind of relationship - to falling completely head over heels in love with each other.

Louise' s writing skills ensure that her readers feel every bit of angst and emotion that her characters go through.

If you love your books filled with passion and romance, with hot sex and a possessive alpha, then look no further...this
