Our Review

‘We’re not built to be alone. We need to connect. We’re designed to seek common ground, to hold each other up, to nurture one another. 
And he did that for me instinctually.’

You Can Have Manhattan by P Dangelico was a proper enemies to lovers’ romance with high angst and emotions. In this story, we as readers sure had to work at it to fall in love with the characters and their journey. Fortunately, P Dangelico writes wonderful characters that whilst they may tread the fine line between love and hate we undoubtedly had fallen in love with them by the end of their arduous love story.

‘Having been trained at such an early age to believe that anything that made you feel good was inherently evil was impossible to completely root out.’

Scott and Sydney have a very low opinion of each other. One is lazy and a male slapper, the other is a highly-strung ice princess. There may be elements of truths to both, however, people change and some wear their stigma as a shield of protection. We’ve read quite a few romance novels where a marriage of convenience sets the story and You Can Have Manhattan is one of the most frustrating yet enticing. Reading it in one sitting we just had to know if Sydney and Scott would eventually overcome their distrust of one another and move from a love-hate to a love-love.

‘As much as she fought it, the ice princess had a thing for me. Good. Because I had a thing for her too.’

We really enjoyed this angsty romance and thought it was well written albeit it a tad predictable.  We loved some of the secondary characters who brought a bit of fun and silliness to an otherwise quite serious and emotional story. We would have loved more of an epilogue as we felt like we’d been through the wars with Sydney and Scott. You Can Have Manhattan was as sweet as it was angsty. For our characters, it seems that by running away from their past, whilst trying to find themselves, they actually lose some of what’s important. It takes their marriage of convenience to uncover truth, hope, and love.

“I don’t want your pity, Scott.”
“You don’t have it,” he said softly. “You have my admiration.’
“I’ll always find you,” he murmured.

 

Synopsis

You are cordially invited to the worst wedding of the century.

Sydney Evans is no stranger to hard work. It’s the one constant in her life. And with no family or friends to speak of it’s been easy to pour everything she has into her career as general counsel for Blackstone Holdings.

She wants for nothing. Until her boss offers her a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. All she has to do in return is marry his good-for-nothing son.

Scott Blackstone used be a party whore. Pardon, party animal. He hasn’t been that guy in a long time though. Not since he moved to Wyoming, bought a failing cattle ranch, and turned it into a profitable business.

All is good. Until a phone call from his father threatens the quiet, simple life he’s built. Marry or lose everything. And to a woman who can’t stand him, no less. Well, Scott is not going down without a fight. He’s never going back to Manhattan. Not if he can help it.
