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.

A Week in New York is the first in a series of three novellas.

NA Review My Thoughts

A Week in New York is the first novella in a romance trilogy by Louise Bay. This is the first book that I have read by Louise and I can already tell I am hooked on her writing. I want to read all of her other books immediately. Her author bio says that she writes the kind of romances that she likes to read- sexy and fun. That is a perfect match for me. I also really like that these are novellas. It is kind of like a romance serial but each of the books is longer. More pages to enjoy. I loved A Week in New York. I am so glad that I signed up to be a part of the second leg of the blog tour too because I already know waiting until December or January to buy the book will be too long for me. I need to know what happens next with Anna and Ethan.

What I liked about Ethan was how he didn’t even bat an eye about losing his rules for Anna. She is the girl that got under his skin and made him want more. He is a very casual guy, and normally that is enough for him, but the more time he spent around Anna you could see a shift in his behavior. Technically it happened rather quickly in the book since the whole novella is only 112 pages, but it didn’t feel too quick. I thought Louise Bay did a fantastic job with her character progression and pacing. The whole thing felt very natural.

Anna has been burned in the past- although she never really told Ethan what exactly happened with her ex- and so all she is looking for right now is casual. She was more determined to stick to that than Ethan was, which I found funny. This story kind of reminded me of Elisabeth Grace’s Indiscretion series, which I absolutely loved. I want to get a little more into Anna’s romantic past in the next installment. I want Ethan to be able to pull it out of her, but that is the only minor complaint I had about the book. It was the perfect story to get lost in for a quick romantic fix. Once all three books are out, I can easily see myself going back and re-reading them all right after another. They are that good.

About Louise Bay

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.

    I absolutely love when a novella can hook you on an author’s writing and make you want to read more, exactly what a good novella should do!

    A Week in New York sounds like an awesome read! The cover is rocking New York’s skyline and the blurb is really a treat to read. Thanks for sharing!

    I think this would be great for those of us who miss Sex in the City. Thanks for the review!
