Whoever said "Revenge is sweet" is a g*ddamned liar.

There's nothing "sweet" about the vengeance I want against Sophia Somerset.

Because when this quick-tongued waitress with more curves than the real estate market makes off with my most prized possession—and the only item saving my company from collapse, payback is the only goal I have planned…at first.

My only saving

I've enjoyed The Note so much,it was brilliant,engaging,intriguing and suspenseful.

Sophia and Noah meet in a bar,they drink a lot of tequila and they go home together but the morning after their lives become more intertwined than they expected.
They couldn't be more different,they grew up in different upbringings with the result that he is a beautiful prince and she is a broke weitress,but both of them have secrets they don't want to reveal.
The sexual tension between them is present throughout t

When Noah's one night stand walks out the door with something of supreme value to him, leaving behind only a note, he vows he'll find her. Vows revenge. But as things tend to, that doesn't exactly happen. Oh, he finds her again, but their attraction flares even hotter, and perhaps revenge takes second place to other things.

This is such a great story! Suspenseful, intriguing and full of secrets and tons of passion and chemistry between Noah and Sophia. I would love it if there were going to b

A retelling of the fairy tale Goldilocks in an intriguing, suspenseful read in Natalie Wrye’s magnificent way! Fabulous main characters and a superb storyline that keeps you gripped to the very end! Lots of intrigue, extortion and murder! A well deserved 5 star ⭐️ read that I can only but highly recommend!

Noah is back in town on a mission to save his business, but he wasn’t expecting that spending a steamy evening with a sexy waitress would be his downfall. Sophia may not have had ulterior motives when she spent the night with Noah, but desperate times call for desperate measures and it becomes an opportunity too good to resist, besides surely her note is apology enough.

Noah is determined to track down his elusive one night stand but when he finds her he decides it would be much more beneficial t

Sophia and Noah meet and have this instant connection until Sophia's life problems causes her to do something she feels guilty about.
So guilty, she leaves an apology note behind.

This was a fun read that is linked with the authors other Manhattan Nights books but stands completely on its own. However, it's still fun to see how Natalie Wrye connects the characters to each other.

The Note is full of mysteries and secrets that unfold throughout the story. If you like contemporary romance that is f

The Note is the fifth book in the Manhattan Nights series and is a very enjoyable read.

The characters are well developed, intelligent, fun, and likable. The storyline is well written and engaging, with humour, drama, suspense, and romance. I really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading more books in this series.

I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

The Note is the fifth standalone in the Manhattan Nights series by the talented, Natalie Wrye. I have read all of her books and they just keep getting better and better. Each book in the Manhattan Nights series is about a different couple but they are all tied together through family, friends, and business so I do recommend reading the series. If you read The Kiss then you have met Sophia, Kayla’s roommate.

It all started with tequila and scotch. Sophia and Noah are strangers who are both having

This was a hot steamy erotic romance story perfect for a quick afternoon read.
A great heart pounding read. The story was very well written with great characters. It drew me in and I had it finished in one sitting. I would highly recommend this read.

The Note has it all! Sophia is a badass in her own right, but she’s also the girls from the wrong side of the tracks that meets The Big bad Wolfe from the right side of the tracks. Little Bear took something from the Wolfe and he wants it back and he will stop at nothing until he does because what Noah Quinn wants Noah Quinn gets no exceptions!

The Note is amazing from start to end and it leaves you wanting more and I know I do because Drew and Nanc are Next!

The Note was a great story, with a story line which is an original take from Goldilocks & the Three Bears. We have the hero, Nate, who has come back from Australia to NYC, looking for his grandfather's watch, which is the one thing which will save his company. He picks up our heroine, Sophia aka Little Bear, in a bar, and they spend the night together, but the next morning, he wakes up to a note (an IOU) from her. She's big in his quest to find that watch, and let me tell you, the twists & turns ...more

Australian businessman Noah Quinn really didn’t get what he expected at all when he hooked up with feisty waitress Sophia Somerset following an evening of flirty banter. Not only did she pass out before the deed was done, her hangover the following morning didn’t stop her from making off with something far more valuable than she could have imagined.

Not everything is as it seems in this intriguing suspense and, in true Natalie Wrye style, the twists and turns will keep you on your toes. There’s l

Sophia who is affectionately known as Little bear, meets Noah one night whilst she is working. They quickly become acquainted over tequila and scotch.

One thing leads to another & Sophia goes home with Noah, but the night doesn’t go how either of them planned. When morning rolls round & Sophia finds herself alone, she accidentally finds something that Noah desperately needs.

Instead of discovering Sophia in his bed, he finds a note, one that holds an IOU on it, and a feeling of dread that Sophia

The story of Sophia and Noah takes us through some twists and turns. It keeps us on the edge of our seat for sure. I like Noah. He is hardened. He is spiraling out of control and has been for a while. But to see him realize that and grow and strengthen is to find happiness. Sophia is strong yet soft. She is fierce but still afraid of so much. She is a hard worker and does not let anything stand in her way when she really makes her mind up. The characters are fun and realistic and enjoyable.

The Note was a well-paced and sexy read I really enjoyed. Natalie Wrye puts her on special twist on the classic (and a favorite of mine) Enemies-to-Lovers trope and it worked so well. Not only do we get the delicious sexual tension between the MCs that the trope usually conjures, but we also have an intriguing storyline, plenty of drama, deceit, and touches of suspense that make this a book you won’t want to put down. Not to mention Noah is as sexy and swoony as book boyfriends can be. He had me ...more

This is the fifth standalone in the Manhattan Nights series. You don't have to read the other books, but I recommend it.
This is an enemy-to-lovers/fake girlfriend story with a pinch of revenge and blackmailing packed in a beautiful love story.

Noah and Sophia are attracted to each other but can't stand each other to the same extent - at first. After a short night of attraction and sparks they notice, that they have nothing in common. But they are bound to each other by their secrets and and act

Another intriguing, edge of your seat romantic suspense from one of my favorites! Sophia and Noah's chemistry burns up the pages from the getgo. The Note is a standalone as with the other books in this series, but I suggest reading the books in order because you will definitely find a connection among them. As with all of her books, the characters are well developed and the plot is well thought out and moves quickly. Twists, turns, mystery, intrigue, sexy times -- it's all in there! Another 5+ s ...more

I've read numerous stories written by Natalie Wrye, and really enjoyed them, but The Note was just an okay read for me. I liked the pace, and the twists and turns kept me guessing, however I did have a hard time connecting with the characters. Something was missing between them. As we all know some stories that authors write, we're gonna love, and some not so much, and that's alright, cause if the author writes the same thing over, you'll lose interest in her books. ...more

This story is a revenge/fake girlfriend/dramatic romance with a slight Goldilocks fairy tale flair. This book seriously has so much going on with it that you can't easily describe it, you just have to read it to fully appreciate it. A bit of suspense and intrigue this enemies to lovers read is both humorous and sexy. A first read fro me by this author but it totally hit the spot. A must add to your TBR list. ...more

What a great story!!! Noah is in a bit of a predicament and if he can't find the one thing that could save his family company then he is all out of luck! So what has a man to do when he suspects his one night stand?!
This story Is def more than a romance, because there is a whole family saga, secrets and suspense, more twists than I thought this story could have!

The Note by Natalie Wrye. I have read other books in this series that I enjoyed, and I really wanted to like this book- but I just didn’t feel the connection with the characters that I was hoping for. I felt like I kept getting tossed around with the plot and honestly, I had a hard time keeping up. I feel the author is talented and creative and I will try again with a new book.

Wow! This takes the hotness and revenge for someone to another level. The chemistry between Noah and Sophia is explosive and I swear at one point I thought my Kindle was going to combust. However, there is so much more going on. There's mystery, suspense, vengeance and it all ties their story together. I loved it!

The Note is the story of Noah and Sophia.
I have to confess that I had a hard time getting into this one but once in, it grabbed me and sucked me into the well plotted story. What a great storyline and well created characters. I loved the nicknames Little Bear and Big Bad Wolf. Many secrets are revealed. And the ending... Wow! Can't wait for the next one.
I also love the fact that all books are interconnected.

I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntary and honest opinion.

This is the 5th book in the Manhattan Nights series but can easily be read on its own.

This is book five in the series, and I loved it just as much, if not more than the others. Sophia is a struggling waitress, who happens to run into Noah in the bar she works in. He is amazing, but she does something unforgivable. Can he find it in his heart to forgive her and give the attraction they are feeling a chance to blossom?

This is the 2nd book I've read written by Natalie Wrye; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.
