What Happens to Men When They Move to Manhattan by JL Knapp
I received a copy of this book from Jill Knapp in exchange for my honest review. So here it goes!
Amelia Hastings is a 23 year old who thinks she has it all, a boyfriend, best friends, an amazing apartment, an education. However, after being dumped by her seemingly faultless boyfriend Nicholas, Amelia now finds herself day dreaming about her friend and classmate Michael. She has always had feelings for Michael but now that Nicholas is out of the picture will she finally take a shot and see where things lead? While juggling school, friends, heartbreak and love Amelia gives you an insight into the life of a true New Yorker.
This book was like a breath of fresh air, it's funny, face paced & quirky, I really liked it. It also reminded me a lot of Sex in the City, in a good way as I loved watching this when I was a bit younger (than I am now) & even still find myself sitting re-watching episodes of it from time to time. While the main characters life is far from perfect and the writing never came off as overly dramatic or whiny. This was a quick easy read and took me back to my days of being single and out in the City. Jill Knapp description of city life and the people who dwell within it are exquisite. I felt like & wished I was right there along side Amelia and her friends, walking to class, riding the subway, shopping and cramming for final exams while eating cold take out and drinking wine.
I found out that this is a trilogy of books & I am really looking forward to the next installment in the series and I can't wait to see where Amelia's journey will take us next.
Thank you to Jill Knapp for allowing me to read and review this book. This book is available on kindle & will be available in paperback from around November.
