What Happens to Men When They Move to Manhattan? By Jill Knapp

Blurb:

When you live in the fastest moving city on earth, how do you decide-
What is worth the chase?

Life in the city gives 23 year old Amalia Hastings a ride she is not expecting… As she tries to find her way on the little island that never sleeps, she discovers she has a harder time navigating through life then she does the streets of Greenwich Village!

Amalia thought she had everything she wanted – a new apartment in Manhattan, a first-rate education at NYU, a group of fabulous friends and Nicholas, a boyfriend who she once believed was her soul-mate. But somehow, it isn’t enough.

Stumbling through her relationships, Amalia encounters Michael. An attractive classmate who quickly moves from being one of her close friends, to an inconsistent friend-with-benefits. After all, the only thing consistent about New York is its beauty.

Amalia is essentially torn between two men, and Michael is torn between two women. Her best friend Cassandra is being strung along by her “boyfriend”, Bryce, and even her friend Olivia is having a secret relationship!

After getting hopelessly lost searching for love in all the wrong places, Amalia finds herself asking – what happens to men when they move to Manhattan?

My Thoughts:

This is a great read that takes you to the heart of New York City and let’s you loose on the singles scene.
Amalia Hastings is living the dream, an attentive boyfriend, fabulous apartment and great friends.
But one day her boyfriend Nicholas decides to call it quits, thrust into the dating scene, Amalia soon learns that New York plays by its own rules.

Amalia is a great character, she grows throughout the story and takes a journey of self discovery.
I love the relationship she has with her brother and I do think she is very blessed to have Cassandra as her best friend (even if they could both do with lessons on men)
There is a character who pops up in the book and he really piqued my interest, I really wanted to learn more about Hayden!

One of my favourite things though, had to be the setting. I desperately want to go to New York now.
The descriptions made me feel as though I was there, experiencing everything right in front of my eyes!

I’m really excited to see what Jill will write next and secretly I’m hoping to read more about Hayden!
