4.5 Stars

When Sydney Evans receives the devastating news that her boss and mentor is dying, she soon finds out that he has an even more crushing blow to deliver. Sydney is his choice to take over Blackstone Holdings… but she has to marry his son first.

Scott Blackstone wants nothing to do with his father’s company, or his blackmail attempt to marry the ice queen, Sydney. He left New York for greener pastures in Wyoming, and there is nothing that can change his mind, or so he thinks. Once again, his father is about to get his way, but Scott refuses to make this scheme easy on his future bride…


You Can Have Manhattan was an emotional and delightful read. With many deep and heart wrenching moments, combined with the comedy of an odd couple who can’t seem to stand each other, when they are suddenly thrown together for better or for worse. Sydney and Scott agree to their marriage of convenience for completely different reasons, but with the friction of their non-conventional relationship leading to some red-hot sexual tension, their faux marriage is about to become all kinds of complicated…

Sydney remembers her last encounter with Scott quite vividly, and she wants absolutely nothing to do with the playboy who never seems to take anything seriously. But, the Scott she meets in Wyoming is a far cry from the spoiled guy she remembers, at least she thinks he is…

Scott left his partying lifestyle behind when he became a rancher, and he has never looked back. But when the tethers of his old life prove that they aren’t so easy to sever, having Sydney in his life becomes a daily reminder of the man he used to be. Scott knows exactly the kind of person Sydney is, and he has a plan to get her to go running back to her life in the city, once and for all…

This was such a fantastic read! I loved Sydney, she was such an intriguing and multi-faceted character. With her admirable strength juxtaposed with her lonely existence, and her simple desire to be loved, you couldn’t help but want the best things for her in her life. And Scott, I felt he had grown so much before the timeline in this story that we sadly missed his transformation from total puke, to hot and responsible rancher. I would have enjoyed getting to see a little more behind his personality, but he was a perfect match for Sydney just the same.

This book had such an incredibly well done plot, with a refreshing twist on the “marriage of convenience” trope, that I seriously adored. In the end this story had it all… sexy moments, heartfelt moments, and all kinds of laughter and angst in between. You Can Have Manhattan was simply a fabulous read that you must read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
