We all saw it coming after reading the first novel in this series, Passion On Park Avenue, that this next novel was going to be either Audrey and Clarke, or Claire and Scott. Though I was hoping for more of Audrey, we were still able to get another story. And this one, just like the last took my breath away with all the emot ...more
I really enjoyed the first book in this series so when book two came out, I knew I had to read this one too!
I love the main premise of the female characters. A widow and her late husband’s mistresses become best friends and support each other through love and life. A fabulous premise and the result is a witty, clean romance that is fresh and delightful!
Love on Lexington Avenue is all about the widow… Claire. I was actually surpri ...more

I did not like Claire as a character. She just seems like one of those people who haven't had to work for anything in their lives. Even after she decides what she wants to do with her life, every piece of the puzzle connects perfectly and smoothly leaving her satisfied. Seems harsh, especially since we're talking about a chick-lit char ...more
Again the lack of steam was a little disappointing. but overall a wonderful story.
I can't wait for book #3!
Love on Lexington Avenue was an enjoyable enough read; I liked Claire and Scott's dynamic. They're both not what each other was expecting, which led to some banter. I also liked that Layne made it a point that, while Claire is getting over Brayden, she is primarily remaking herself. Despite how this series began, it's not all about the cheating ex-husband.
I thought the romance was a little too fast towards the end, and honestly a lot of their interactions lacked something to me. I like ...more

First, I love LL. I’ve read all of her books. Passion on park avenue , the first in this series, was a 4 star for me. But this, the second in the series, was great. I loved Claire and Scott, and their romance. LL’s writing was impeccable. I loved that there are sexy times but not descriptive ones. It just worked for this one. I can’t wait to read the Final book in the series, I’m sure she is saving the best for last, a la Nora Roberts style! THANK you to netgalley for the ARC! ...more
Claire and Scott need each other in their life. They help close the wounds of the past and start a new happy life. The characters was developed at a pace you can't put the book down. The love evolve and grows in a beautiful love story.
I enjoy reading this book and recommend it.
I received a ARC from Netgalley for a honest review.
