Obar | 2 comments I read this book a few years ago, probably 2015. It's a contemporary romance novel set in Manhattan. The protagonist is a woman who is a scientist or a graduate student (she works in a lab) - and so has spent a lot of time studying / working instead of dating. Her brother's friend (I think!) also lives in Manhattan, so the friend checks in on the protagonist and then "teaches" her how to date. I remember the book includes mentions of the two of them going for runs in Central Park. There is also a mention of a bar called Bathtub Gin. The man also introduces the protagonist to his friends and their girlfriends. I think the girlfriends take the protagonist out shopping or to brunch / drinks.

It was a really cute and fun read, so any idea of what this book might be called would be so helpful! Thanks in advance.

Beautiful Player by Christina Lauren matches your description. "The Bathtub Gin was small speakeasy in Chelsea." (p. 362, Google Books preview)
