You are cordially invited to the worst wedding of the century.
Sydney Evans is no stranger to hard work. It’s the one constant in her life. And with no family or friends to speak of it’s been easy to pour everything she has into her career as general counsel for Blackstone Holdings.
She wants for nothing. Until her boss offers her a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. All she has to do in return is marry his good-for-nothing son.
Scott Blackstone used be a party whore. Pardon, party animal. He hasn’t been that guy in a long time though. Not since he moved to Wyoming, bought a failing cattle ranch, and turned it into a profitable business.
All is good. Until a phone call from his father threatens the quiet, simple life he’s built. Marry or lose everything. And to a woman who can’t stand him, no less. Well, Scott is not going down without a fight. He’s never going back to Manhattan. Not if he can help it.
Life changing moments rarely announce themselves. They prefer to sneak up and sucker punch you in the face by way of greeting.
You Can Have Manhattan is the perfect marriage of convenience/enemies to lovers romance. I was completely hooked on this story from the beginning. This was an emotional, slow burn, beautifully written story.
Sydney and Scott do not want to marry each other, however, they still go through with it for the business and for their passions. Scott tries to scare Sydney when she is on his ranch, but she is a fighter and makes the best of her situation. This only impresses him. She isn’t the woman he expected her to be.
I loved this book from the start. Sydney is an awesome heroine and the more the story went on the more and more I loved her. Scott, well I wanted to dislike him, but I couldn’t. Sure, he may have been a playboy in his past, but things have changed and he is no longer that person.
This story was truly fantastic and a MUST READ. I loved every single moment of this book from the tension, to the steam, to the heartbreaking moments, to the sweet moments and the adorable Romeo and Juliet.
