It's no secret I love Kandi Steiner's books and I was so excited to read the third book in her 'Becker Brother's' series, Mahnattan. This is a fantastic friends to lovers romance that I adored. These books take place in a small town in Tennessee and I love the small town vibe they have.

Mikey Becker and Kylie Nelson have been best friends since they were eight years old. That same year, Mikey lost his father and Kylie lost her mother and they've had an unbreakable bond. As the years

sooo yeah, the Becker brother left me swooning... again (not as much as the first two books tho because Mikey got on my nerves).

this was really sweet and short and to be honest, i was a little iffy because from the previous books, i knew Mikey (H) had a gf and he was extremely in love with her. in fact, he was so in love with her that he lost a "piece of himself" for a whole ass year.

“For the first time in two years, that piece of me that had been missing was back—even if he was a battered, bruised, and broody version of the boy I knew before.”

Kandi gives us the broodiest Becker brother yet in the third book of this series. Before you crack open this book, be prepared for a flood of emotions. This friends to lovers romance had me gasping in frustration, my eyes welling with tears, and my heart just about exploding out of my chest.

Kylie and Mikey have seen each other through their hardest times in life, as well as the best. They shared everything with one another and were as close as friends could possibly be. Except the one secret that Kylie has, that she's in love with Mikey. But now he wants to move away and Kylie doesn't want to lose her chance to finally tell him how she feels. So she sets up a whole summer of adventures to get Mikey to see what he's been missing all these years.

I can't stop swooning. I seriously can't stop. It's so refreshing. It's the kind of book that reminds you why you love reading. It's the kind of book that makes you feel like you're falling in love for the very first time. It reminds you of innocence. Of first crushes, first touches, first kisses, first loves, first everythings. It gives you butterflies, makes you tingle and swoon, but it also grabs you by the heart and squeeeeezes, making you ache and

I am trash for Kandi Steiner's writing. Every new book, I utterly devour the story and am always left wanting more. I have loved the first two books in the Becker Brothers series and couldn't wait to return to this small town!

When we started this book, I was surprised that it was going to take place during the summer after Mikey and Kylie graduated from high school. The other two books are definitiely adult romances, so this was new for this series. Kylie has always loved Mikey (thought he

Kandi Steiner has become an author now I anticipate new books with a smile on my face. Her Becker Brothers series has been a delight for me. She has created a family devoted to each other and brothers, each unique and special. Manhattan focuses on Michael, a young man who has been nursing a broken heart.

GAH! This book... It's refreshing. It's sweet. It's sexy and absolutely swoon worthy. It transports you back in time to the youthful days of first crushes, first kisses, first loves. It reminds us of that one special boy who caused the butterflies to take flight. The one who made you smile, made you laugh and made your heart soar. This friends-to-lover's romance was pure perfection. Kandi Steiner has a way of bringing out any and all emotions that you can feel.

Manhattan, Mikey’s story and the youngest Becker brother, is the third book in the Becker Brothers series. To say that this book was one of my most anticipated reads would be an understatement. I’ve desperately wanted Mikey’s book even before I was finished reading the first book in the series, On the Rocks. And it was well worth the wait, so much more than I could’ve thought possible, and everything I didn’t know I needed.

Mikey Becker stole my heart and I don’t want it back. If there’s one

Manhattan burns slow, like a long pull of single malt. When you mix in friends to lovers, this small town romance will leave you with a heady, satisfied sigh. Five stars!

The blissful optimism of youth, the rosy eyed dreams of naive young'uns and the bonds of pinky promises stronger than's all explored with tender details by Kandi in this slow burn romance about the youngest Becker Brother. He's a fledgeling birdie ready to dive off into the real world from his love cushioned nest home. None of his family or friends are too happy about it but Michael Becker sees the horizon from his tiny hamlet of hometown- Stratford, and he wants to soar and touch it.

We finally get to Michael's story and what I was hoping for was some answers. Unfortunately, we're going to get tortured for a bit longer.

Michael's been going through the worse of heartaches and luckily, his most forgiving best friend, Kylie, has not given up on him. She's been doing everything she can think of to get him back to living life again.

Of course, she's been in love with him forever so it's not hard to see why. After graduation, when Michael announces his plans to move to

He is dealing with a broken heart as well as the constant pain that comes with losing a parent and feels he needs to break free and leave his old life behind.

It’s no secret that I love everything Kandi Steiner writes! Every single one of her books I’ve read is packed with so much feels! I was so excited to dive into this third novel in the Becker Brothers Series, because those men are just so amazing! Manhattan was such a sweet, beautiful romance that had me swooning over the youngest Becker brother and his adorable best friend Kylie!

"In every single way possible, we were tied together, Kylie and I. She'd always been there for me. And I'd always been there for her."

I just love a good best friends-to-lovers romance!

Mikey and Kylie have been friends since childhood and it was so touching to read about those scenes from when they were younger, especially since they both dealt with the death of a parent at such a young age. Just like the previous two, this book provided a lot of really heartwarming scenes not

Manhattan is a book that jumped out of nowhere and grabbed me by the heart and wouldn't let go.

I have read Kandi Steiner in the past, but I haven't read any of this series. When I read the summary, something spoke to me and I knew I needed to read it. I didn't even notice that is was part of a series until I started looking closer at emails and such. At no time while reading the book did I feel like I had missed anything by not reading the other books in the series.

Manhattan is the Beckers brothers' third book and while I enjoyed the two previous books, I think this book is my favorite. I loved the story of Michael and Kylie.

The book is somewhat cliché: the girl who has been in love with her best friend since she was a child and waits for a chance to get him to see it with other eyes. But Kandi steiner's writing made me keep my eyes on my Kindle so as not to miss the moment when Michael would finally see with other eyes.The story was told in a

Book 3 in the Becker Brothers series complete! @kandisteiner does it again with this book!! I have no clue how she pumps out such high quality books in the speed that she does. I love how each book in this series follows a different romance trope. This one in particular is a friends to lovers romance. Kylie and Mikey have been friends since they were 8. Fast forward and they are now 18 years old and about to begin their new journeys. Kylie has always secretly been in love with him and this

This book was so much more than I could ever have asked for. I’m so in love with everything.

Manhattan is the third book in the Becker brothers series and focuses on the youngest brother.

We were tied together in that way, in a way we never would be with anyone else.

this is my favourite becker brothers book for now. so many emotions, tears and feels that Kandi poured to this book. this story is so heartbreaking but there are healing. so many words i want to tell how much i freaking love this book.

Kylie Nelson is definitely my favourite character in this book. she's loyal beside how she feels for Mikey but she's also strong. she's not the type of girl that could easily forgive

I think this is the cutest Kandi Steiner book to date. I loved everything about it, as usual, but there was an certain innocence to this book that I am OBSESSED with! I seriously think I have a toothache from the sweetness in this book. It reminded me of watching and rewatching my favorite romance movies. Like who doesn’t love to watch 13 Going on 30 for the millionth time, laughing like a maniac, while simultaneously bawling your eyes out???

I love this book. Kandi brings all the feels with this beast friends to lovers romance. Mikey and Kylie share an unbreakable bond. That bond has been tested but they always come back to each other some way some how. They were brilliant. I love the depth of both of these characters. Watching Mikey fall in love with Kylie was so wonderful. He is so blinded by the hurt his ex put him through that it took him awhile to finally see Kylie how
