You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?
Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and my Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.
In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.
The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
But what happens when the frog who was never supposed to turn into a prince kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.
Carrie Aarons' "All the Frogs in Manhattan" is a great read. Gemma is a twenty-something looking for love in Manhattan. She works as a beauty editor and is finding men to date however she can, bars and online are the top two. She meets all sorts of men, including mama's boy, meatheads, and the lovely men who pretend who they are just to get into someone's pants. Gemma is armed with snarky remarks and uses them when necessary, one of them in front of someone she didn't even see around her as she delivered it to a man who went running after hearing it. Oliver is a tech geek who overhears something that made him laugh by a beautiful woman. He ends up sending her home in his cab. He never thought he would see her again, let alone the next day in a brunch place. They end up back at her place and agree to a friends with benefits situation. Can two people keep a relationship like this going without feelings coming out? Find out in this awesome read!!!
5 out of 5 stars
Author of romance novels such as Red Card and On Thin Ice, Carrie Aarons writes sexy, swoony and sarcastic characters who won't get out of her head until she puts them down on a page.
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book, and can’t imagine a better or more maddening profession.
When she isn't in a writing coma, Carrie is chasing her Great Dane/Lab puppy through the dog parks of New Jersey, or trying to make her husband binge watch the latest Netflix craze.
