Her heart is empty in the new life she’s living.
Charlotte Taylor knows she’s gorgeous. She’s been told that all her life. Since she was a child, her mom, a former model and Miss Georgia, has been grooming her for a professional modeling career and tomorrow, she’ll sign with the top agency in New York City. It should be a dream come true.
Alone, and unhappy, she doesn’t know where to turn.
Hale Scott works long hours as a chef at the hottest restaurant in Manhattan. It should be his dream job, serving hip food to the coolest crowd in the city. The only problem is his boss. The highlight of his evening is the gorgeous woman he keeps making eye contact with, sitting at the table closest to the kitchen. She looks sad and lonely and he hopes she’s still there when the dinner rush subsides.
Charlotte and Hale find an instant connection but a relationship is the last thing Charlotte needs and the only thing Hale wants. Can they find a way to stay together in the overwhelming city, or can they find their own city of love?
Genre: Contemporary Romance
City of Love is a lot sweet and a good bit sexy. Two people who appear to be on the right track in their lives really aren't. Meeting each other puts them on a path to each other and their future. I love the characters and the premise of the story, and loved the peek into some sights of New York City! It really is a City of Love. Another great novella from Kaira Rouda.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
