All the Frogs in Manhattan by Carrie Aarons

3.5 Stars

Gemma and Oliver are quite the duo. A nerdy-sexy millionaire tech genius and a beautiful go-getter manhattanite really did make for an interesting read. They're not your typical fairy tail combo, and they sure worked hard to prove that point.

I was actually consumed by this book. The writing was great-it flowed wonderfully and it really captured and held my attention.

Commitment-something Oliver is NOT familiar with. At 30, his job creating technical masterpieces was pretty much all he had time for. A fling here and there and a romp now and again satisfied his basic carnal needs but a girlfriend? HELL NO.

Looking for her prince in a sea of frogs in New York was proving difficult. At 25, Gemma just wanted to settle down and move forward with her life. She's got the dream job working as an editor for a popular woman's magazine, and endless amounts of one night stands...but she needed something more.

I loved the initial meet-cute between Oliver and Gemma. Though it was too quick, it was quite funny. This made for their second connection to allow for some humility and some sexy time, which was too quick as well, but made sense later into the read. I did notice some continuity issues, but apart from that I laughed! A lot! There were some parts that felt a little too rushed and some that left me feeling a little flat but all in all I really enjoyed this read. It's a first for me from Aarons and I'm tempted to give her another go! Second chance romances are hard to write-they're hard to keep original as well. The chemistry was there though, and it helped move the story along!

Ps. I think they'd make cute babies.
