REVIEW: A Week In New York by Louise Bay

Genre: Romance
Age Category: Adult
Release Day: October 21, 2014

Anna Kirby is sick of dating. She's tired of heartbreak. Despite being smart, sexy, and funny, she's a magnet for men who don't deserve her. A week's vacation in New York is the ultimate distraction from her most recent break-up, as well as a great place to meet a stranger and have some summer fun. But to protect her still-bruised heart, fun comes with rules. There will be no sharing stories, no swapping numbers, and no real names. Just one night of uncomplicated fun.

Super-successful serial seducer Ethan Scott has some rules of his own. He doesn't date, he doesn't stay the night, and he doesn't make any promises. It should be a match made in heaven. But rules are made to be broken.

My Rating:

My Thoughts:

This is a straight up no non-sense romance fiction. I loved it! This is definitely a quick read. I enjoy reading stories that gives you all the facts up front. This is a story about two individuals dealing with their own issues that managed to meet half way. I read this in one seating. Or for the most part I was lying down, but not really relevant. Anna is a girl who had her heart broken, has trust issues and couldn't be bothered with romance once again. Enter Ethan, hot, all male Ethan. To be honest he may be a little bit one dimensional but he managed to be quite charming in some scenes. Any girl who has her heart broken can relate to Anna's decision. This can happen to the best of us. And I don't blame her for wanting to have fun and engage on some "friendly" exchange with a stranger. I would definitely do the same thing. Definitely. I love how Louise Bay portrayed Anna as a 21st century girl. She's not some woman looking to be hitched to the next guy that comes along. This is a woman who know what she wants and goes after it. Frankly, we need to have more girls like Anna. I'm tired of reading about girls being coerced into doing whatever it is they were coerced to do.

The story is realistic, there's no billionaire guy going after a girl. This can actually be your best friends story. I'm curious to know what else Ms. Bay has in store for the rest of the novella but I'll definitely stay tuned in to find out. I recommend this for anyone looking for a light & fun read. Anna is a girl you'd love to hang out with. (And I'm not talking about myself)

About the Author

I write sexy, romantic, contemporary novels - the kind I like to read! Ruined by romantic mini-series of the seventies and eighties, I love all things romantic. There's not enough of it in real life so I'll settle for books and films.I love the rain, the West Wing, London, days when you don't have to wear make-up, being alone, being with friends, elephants and champagne.


  1. I seen this on their website, and was about to sign up to read it, but chose You Turn by Marion Croslydon instead. It was a great choice, BUT I'm still dying to read this. All this year I've been reading YA and NA, and I'm kinda missing my adult fiction. Well YT was adult as well, but you get my point lol. Thanks for sharing, I look forward to reading more of your posts!

    1. Thanks for visiting. And actually, one of the reasons I picked this one is because I'm due for some adult time. Haha. I really enjoyed the story, I hope you do too!
