Sleepless in Manhattan
USA TODAY bestselling author Sarah Morgan introduces From Manhattan with Love, a sizzling new trilogy about three best friends embracing life—and love—in New York
Cool, calm and competent, events planner Paige Walker loves a challenge. After a childhood spent in and out of hospitals, she’s now determined to prove herself—and where better to take the world by storm than in...more
I started this series with installment #3 because this is the type of series that allows you to do that. You can come and go with no confusion. I loved #3 which was themed perfectly for the holiday time in which I read it. Afterwards, I found the first two installments and quickly got started. Sleepless in Manhattan wasn't quite as enjoyable as #3 in my personal opinion, but it was a solid contemporary romance with surprising layers. The hero is plagued by a dysfunctional perception of relati ...more
I think if I met Sarah Morgan, I’d give her a hug and thank her profusely for being a writer, while gibbering nonsensical words and phrases about how much I love her books. I’m still relatively a new reader of this authors work, but knowing she has over seventy published books, a large number of which I have still too read makes me a happy girl.
Sleepless in Manhattan grabbed me from the get-go, and it is the start of a series that I just kno ...more

I really enjoyed this book and I'm very much looking forward to the others in the series. I thought it was an easy, fun, romance book. I found myself flying through the book! Highly recommend picking it up if you enjoy adult romance novels!
***received this book because of Booktube Tours. Harlequin sent this book to me in exchange for an honest review***
There's just something about Sarah Morgan's characters especially her heroines that endear them to me. And Paige is no exception.

Romantic comedies! Who doesn’t love ‘Sleepless in Seattle’, or ‘When Harry Met Sally’?
This cute contemporary romance pays homage to the classics, while introducing us to a new series centered around best friends trying to start their own business in Manhattan.
This story places the spotlight on Paige, a vibrant young woman who surv ...more
Our heroine, Paige, has met -- in fact exceeded -- all of the goals set for her at an events planning company, and she's ready to tackle her promised promotion. Except instead of getting promoted, she's laid off, along with her two closest friends.
When Paige's brother's best friend Jake -- who was also Paige's first serious crush -- offers her a chance to start her own events planning business, she jumps at the chance. But ho ...more
SLEEPLESS IN MANHATTAN has got to be the best feel good story I have read in a long time. Paige, Frankie, and Eva have been best friends since they were young. They all work at the same event planning company and one day out of the blue, they are all fired. It's not bad enough that they are unemployed and have to find new jobs, but where are they going to find a job where all three of them can be together. There is nothing out there.
They come up with an idea to ...more

It was such a lie.
Now 28, Paige’s two biggest life lessons from the experience were: stay cheerful so your family don’t overreact, and don’t trust your instincts about men and their potential feels. She’s still in love with Jake. She sees him regularly, and she l ...more

And these ladies quickly pull you into their fold, stamping the pages with personality--Eva being the ...more
I enjoyed this romantic comedy. The leading man was a darling and the relationship tension constantly mounting...
If you follow my reviews, you know I particularly enjoy love/hate relationships. This was interesting and different being the hate part intentional.
Also I enjoyed the fact that there are different POVs in the storytelling. I love having glimpses of the male point of view.
I can't wait to read the second book in the series...
Reasons why the half-star deduction:
One. The word pr ...more
What a GREAT book! Taking risks in life, living it every day to its fullest, having true friends, the love of a caring and protecting family and siblings, hot sex and yes, falling in love. This novel is all that and so much more. There is a darker tone in it as I am used to when it comes to Sarah Morgan, but here it fits completely. And Puffin Island is in the game as well. I enjoyed every second while reading, I had tears running down my cheeks and was a wreck when it came to ...more
I read the third book in this series as one of my 2017 holiday season reads and really enjoyed it, so I decided to start with book #1 and make my way through the series.
Paige was a great character; Jake was a little cliche, but not so much so that it was annoying. I liked that they had known each other since they were teens and had a sort of foundation to their relationship, rather than a "meet and fall instantly in love" story. They were also surrounded with a great ...more
Paige Walker is determined to live her life on her own terms, even if it means starting her own business with her friends on a wing and a prayer, even if it means asking for help from her b ...more
I can't help feeling a little despondent that the condom in my purse has passed its expiry date.
I feel as if she's the Great White Shark at the top of the food chain and I'm a little seal she's going to eat in one mouthful.
It was hard to hide from someone who knew all your secrets. It felt like an invasion of privacy, as if she'd given him a key that he'd refused to return.
Embarrassment burned through her like acid on metal. Being around him made her feel like a gawky, clumsy te ...more
I thought I wouldn't like Jake, but I actually did. He can be pretty sweet at times and most of his hesitation in relationships comes fro ...more
Review by Lisa Kane
I've read lots of book from Sarah Morgan under the Harlequin line. This one reads like one of those. Paige is the little sister of Jake's best friend. Of course he's sworn not to get involved with her and so he's buried himself in tons of other women in order to stay away from her.
Paige loses her job and she's at a cross roads in her life. Jake and she give in to their feelings and start a friends with benefits relationship. But of course Paige thinks Jake is startin ...more
This one is set in New York and features a wonderful cast of characters and I’m thrilled that this is the first in a new series. Roll on book 2! I can’t wait to catch up with everyone and get to know them better. You really get to know New York and I am even more desperate to visit ...more
Sleepless in Manhattan, was a cute friends-to-lovers, rom-com. It was light-hearted and low on the angst scale.
Paige Walker spent her youth in and out of hospitals and under the watchful and protective eye of her family. As an adult, she was determined to prove she was capable of taking care of herself. She'd had one love, and that was her brother's best friend, Jake Romano.
Jake Romano was a highly successful businessman. An all-around nice guy, he was charming, protective and funny. ...more
This was a tough call. And an incredibly frustrating read at times - I went back and forth between 2 and 3 stars and although I finally settled on 3, it is generously rounded-up in my mind.
I think what frustrates me most is that the story here has so much potential? It has most of the makings of an enjoyable, entertaining read for me - a tight group of friends, strong female friendships, an exciting city.
Unfortunately, it fell flat.
First all of, the repetitiveness - I felt like some facts/feelin ...more
(view spoiler)[OKAY. So here's the thing about this book: it spent far too long on the set up, and not nearly enough time on the resolution. For someone who was as (understandably) affected by his birth mother's abandonment at age six, that his stance on romance and love was that it basically does ...more
I enjoyed previous trilogies by Sarah Morgan before, so I was happy when Netgalley/HQN approved my request for an ARC. I was curious about this new trilogy, as it 'moved' from small-town in Puffin Island to the big city. Unfortunately, this one didn't exactly hit the mark for me.
Let me go with what I liked about it first. I did like Paige. I liked that she was determined to be independent and proved to everybody that she could do things on her own. I liked that she didn't wa ...more
