Fun! Flirty! Fantastic!

Those three words always describe a Sarah Morgan read. I just know whenever I pick up her latest release, I will be treated to the most endearing characters, an engaging storyline and entertaining conversation! She has yet to let me down!

Molly, an author, as well as famous blogger "Ask Aggie," gives relationship advice and writes about finding your perfect mate. She now lives in NYC after escaping London three years ago with her professional and personal reputati

This is the second novel that I have read of Sarah Morgan, and it is full of charm. Set in New York, we have Daniel, a divorce lawyer, who is keen to become acquainted with this woman that he sees running in Central Park with her dog. He thinks the way to do it is to borrow a dog from his sisters, Fliss and Harriet, and so he runs with a German Alsation, a dog he struggles to control. Molly is a psychologist, who relocated to NYC after a disastrous set of events occurred. The only man in her lif ...more

If you’re looking for a sweet escape when it comes to romances, you can’t go wrong with Sarah Morgan’s books.
I’ve been fan of her work for a while now and every time I read one of her stories, I forget the world around me and lose myself in the passionate occasions.

New York, Actually is the fourth book in the From Manhattan With Love series, but it can be read as standalone.
It is written in third person and it follows perspectives of Molly and Daniel.

I was over the moon to discover that Sarah Morgan was continuing her From Manhattan with Love series, it was one of my favourites of 2016, but I was equally intrigued over who the new characters could possibly be. And she's done it seamlessly, introducing us to the Knight siblings; twins Harriet and Fliss and their older brother, Daniel. A divorce lawyer whose opinion on love is backed up by his career.

I am so pleased that the From Manhattan with Love series continues into 2017, and Sarah Morgan has moved on from giving the Urban Genie girls their happily ever afters, by introducing us to the siblings behind The Bark Rangers, in the coming books.

Although if we are being picky, Daniel isn’t part of Bark Rangers, it is run by his sisters Fliss and Harry, that-said he isn’t averse to borrowing the odd foste

HEA(view spoiler)

New York, Actually was such a pleasant surprise for me. This was my first read by this author and I really clicked with her writing. It was intelligently written light, breezy fun. I don't always engage easily with third person POV, but in this case, I slid right into the story without any effort. It was a bit of a slow burn romance between
New York, Actually wasn't quite as engaging as I had hoped it would be for me personally, but it was sweet and somewhat thought-provoking. There's some animal love, identity mystery, adult romance, elements of family drama, and discussion about divorce versus working on marriage. Overall, I liked it (3 stars), but for me it's my least favorite of the bunch. However, if you enjoy this author or follow this series, check it out for yourself!

Be prepared to be swept off your feet in this wonderful romantic read. If you love romance and chicklit this book is defiantly a must buy must read for you.

I simply love Sarah Morgan's books. She always has this amazing ability to wish me away. To submerge me in a book and have you greedily devouring it in one sitting.

In this book we are whisked away to New York and the slender that is Central Park. A place that has a special place in my heart as we honeymooned last year all over New York and
Dear Aggie, there’s this guy I find impossibly sexy, and when I’m with him I forget everything. I know that anything we share will be short-term. I’m worried a relationship will end in pain. What should I do? Yours, Light-headed.

They couldn’t be more different. She’s a behaviour psychologist who has a successful advice column on dating and relationships and he’s a successful divorce lawyer who doesn’t think relationships last. Both think they know how relationships should work and how it’s

This book definitely delivered on what I was hoping to get out of this reading experience.

It's such a great feel good story. It has really fun and great characters, it has DOGS!!, a sexy slow burning romance and great writing.

A perfect book to pick up anytime when you're in the mood to lighten your spirits!

Sarah Morgan hasn't disappointed me yet and I'm so excited to read the rest of the series and to find out what the other characters are up to!

Another excellent book by Sarah Morgan. Each book i have read by this author has interested me so far. In this instalment of the Manhattan with Love Series #4 there a more new characters than the last three books. Even though i miss hearing about many of those characters in not much detail Eva is featured quite often. As for Daniel and Molly they create an interesting story one i found less predictable than others in the series which i liked. Daniel in particular was a very good character with h ...more

New York, Actually is the start of a new three book series by Sarah Morgan, but it has connections to her New York series of books from 2016 too,. Not huge connections, but for fans of the author enough to smile in recognition and to be happy to see some familiar characters. It is though a completely standalone story that is great fun to read.

In the opening few pages you get a real glimpse of Molly's personality and her thoughts on relationships, given her favourite man is Valentine. Valentine
I adored this book, especially Molly's character. I was somewhat hesitant to leave the cozy nest of the original best friends, but was pleasantly surprised how delightful this was one is. As a die hard dog lover, I found it even more appealing with all the canine goodness.

I loved the cameo from Eva and Lucas and look forward to the next installment.

Molly is a psychologist who wrote a best-selling book and is now a famous online agony aunt. She has had a series of bad relationship break-ups, in each case the man fell madly in love with Molly but no matter how hard she tried.

Daniel is a divorce lawyer, disillusioned about love and relationships he cares only about helping the helpless. When he spots Molly running in Central Park with her dog Valentine he decides the best way to get to know her would be as a fellow dog owner so he b

Another brilliant start to Sarah Morgan's latest New York trilogy. Loved everything about Daniel and Molly's story including the extended cast list with two of the *most* adorable dogs on the planet. Reading one of Sarah Morgan's books is like watching all your favourite romantic comedies at once - it's an intense ride that leaves you happy and satisfied and feeling eternally optimistic. The New York setting is the other main character in the book and she's just...gorgeous :). Can't wait for Fli ...more

This is my first book by Sarah Morgan and part of a series, I must say I didn’t pay attention when I got this title for review. But it can easily be read as a standalone without being confusing or having the feeling you miss something.
I wasn’t sure if I would but I really enjoyed this book.
I liked the story , the writing and the characters. I also really enjoyed the Dear Aggie parts, which was really Molly but still … it made it just a tad

3.5 stars.

I think in a way, this has been my favourite from this series so far? I liked both Molly and Daniel and I liked this idea of two people, who thought they had love and relationships all figured out, being confronted with the reality that they do not, in fact, know shit xD

Both of them made mistakes and hid things from the other but to me it felt realistic, given how they were both hurt in the past. It made them real, vulnerable and relatable. Also, I ALWAYS love when it's the heroine wh

Wow... let me tell you one thing first, I stay clear of Rom com books. In the past I tried reading it once or twice but didn’t finish it. Something was missing. But this was Sarah Morgan so I wanted to try. And I’m so glad I did.
New York actually was a crazy fun read. I absolutely adored Hero Daniel and Heroine Molly. From first page onwards you will know something really bad happened to Molly in her past which made her wary of relationship eventhough she is a relationship expert. And let me tel

2.5. - the heroines in this series are getting worse. I loved the premise for the book, but yet again we have a martyred heroine who 'can't fall in love' and breaks men's hearts without even trying. It was fun in places but mostly repetitive.
Honestly, Harriet is my last hope in the last book...if I make it that far.

I am not into slick, athletic lawyer types in suits. But this lawyer hero brought me round. Also the dogs were super cute. And the friendships. I was more jealous of the friendships than of the romance. There were many misunderstandings, too many secrets. But they did end up talking them all through. I finished this pretty fast and it was just the right book for being sick in bed. Except it kept me up a bit late.

Miss Bates hasn’t ever warmed to Sarah Morgan’s contemporaries as much as she adored her categories (Playing By the Greek’s Rules is a must-read). The longer roms have been uneven, but Morgan made up for a lot when she penned New York, Actually. Its chicklit vibe and hokey opening weren’t auspicious and Miss Bates came close to DNF-ing. But she stuck to it … because Morgan … and, in the end, was captured by some clever, interesting things Morgan did.

New York Actually by Sarah Morgan is a delightful and fun contemporary romantic read but with a serious message. I always love Sarah Morgan's writings as they put a smile on my face and leave my heart feeling warm.
New York Actually is a wonderful read on so many levels. Characters from a previous novel were on the peripheral which made the read feel familiar from the start.
The characters were drawn realistically and with warmth - they included two big bouncy dogs who took on their own personalit
What a cute story! I've enjoyed everything in this series, this book included. I liked both Daniel and Molly's characters and the supporting cast was lovely and added a nice depth to the story. With the trades both the main characters were in, you can see why they had to talk about their traumatic pasts and how it shaped them, but sometimes I felt like it was a bit too much and made the story drag a little. That said, I really enjoyed the ending and Daniel was a delight. A fun read! ...more
