Sightseeing in Manhattan by C. Lesbirel - New Release

Sightseeing in Manhattan
by C. Lesbirel
Series: 425 Madison, #9
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 18, 2019

On stage at a Magic Mike theme night with the music blaring and her hands trailing the oily, well-defined abs of another man is where Hannah-Rae realizes that maybe she isn’t as heartbroken about her cheating ex as she had first thought. She had known she needed to make some big decisions about life before flying out to NYC, she just hadn’t expected her heart would be calling all the shots.

He didn’t know why or how his passion for dance had come about. All he knew is that when he was on that stage throwing shapes down, he felt so alive in the moment that he almost forgot about the fact that his little sister was sick and there was absolutely nothing he could do about it. Almost.

When chance circumstances bring us together, will dancing bring us something more than either of us expected?

After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

Letting go with one of his hands, he slides his fingertips up my back and to the nape of my neck. Some of my hair tangles between his fingers and he squeezes gently, pulling me up toward him again to meet another waiting kiss.

He spins me back around and commands me to take hold of the wheel and not let go. I do as I’m told and cling to it, not even caring about the direction or thinking about anything other than how good his hands feel, now that they are both free to roam over my body. He traces them over my hips and spans my waist before tracing up to the curve of my breasts and cupping them each, over the top of my cardigan.

“I like this, pink suits you,” he whispers softly into my ear.

“I guessed it was pink from the feel of it. It’s light and soft, like cotton candy.”

“It’s cute. Sometimes you look cute. I thought that when I picked you up. Now you don’t look cute, though.”

“I don’t? Then how do I look now?”

“Breath taking.” He says the word so easily that it sounds natural and believable. Even if I don’t believe it myself, he makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the entire city.

My long waves blow free in the evening breeze and it’s eerily quiet with the noise of the city in the distant background. “Your curves are the sexiest thing I’ve ever laid eyes on,” he murmurs as his hands come to rest on my waist, pinching gently as though trying to control himself. I’m not sure I want him to.

What a great way to end the 425 Madison Series! I really enjoyed this story and especially loved the heroine, Hanna-Rae, who continually stepped out of her comfort zone to create the life she wanted to live.

Hanna-Rae had so many wonderful qualities about her I just loved. She may be visually impaired, but she never let that affect her love for dance. She has struggled with her personal life, but when a contest gives her a fresh start and an opportunity to go after something she has wanted forever, she doesn’t hesitate to take the chance and see where fate may bring her. I absolutely loved how she put herself out there, battling through the insecurities, and didn’t let her visual impairment stop her from really seeing everything around her, but what was most impressive was how she helped those around her see things in a new way.
My thoughts dart to Matt and our day together and I realize that it had taken a day. A single day to fall in love with the idea that I am capable of creating a new life for myself. Sightseeing in Manhattan hadn’t made me fall in love with Matt, but it had completely captured my heart and proved that the world is big and wide and there is so much of it I want to see and experience.
Matt was an interesting hero for me at first, but once he meets Hanna-Rae it was easy to see what a great guy he was. I loved his devotion to his mother and sister and can’t say enough about how the author portrayed his relationship with Hanna-Rae. Never once does her sight issues stop Matt from wanting to show her Manhattan and ultimately everything that life has to offer.

One of the things that really worked in this book was the supporting characters. Hanna-Rae’s two roommates were exactly what she needed to help kick-start her new life in New York, I just adored Matt’s sister, and I especially loved everything about the rescue shelter where Matt and Hanna-Rae officially meet. There really wasn’t more than a couple of cameos of other characters from the 425 Madison Series, but it was nice to see a couple of characters pop up.

This was a great way to end this series. This book can be read as a standalone and would make a nice addition on  a summer TBR!
