Anna and Ethan are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Their previous rules no longer apply.

In order to make things work, Anna needs to let go of her past and take a risk with Ethan. Ethan needs to learn how to deal with the ambiguity of a relationship.

Long-distance relationships are never easy and their situation is fragile. For how long can it survive under the pressure of separation? Are either of them prepared to give up what they have for the other?

But distance isn’t the only obstacle Anna and Ethan face. Ultimately they have to decide whether they want to share a future together.

NA ReviewMy ThoughtsPlease Note: there will be slight spoilers in this review. I tried really hard to not include them but because it is the final book in a trilogy the content depends slightly on events that have happened previously. Nothing shocking, but I still felt the need to warn you. New Year in Manhattan is the final installment in the New Adult Serial Contemporary Romance, the Empire State Trilogy. I am so sad to see this trilogy end, but it was such a perfect ending to Anna and Ethan’s story. Now that is not to say that I wouldn’t be thrilled to see another novella or two with them pop up again. I think there is still a lot of fun these two can have. 😉 But I think Louise Bay did an excellent job or wrapping everything up nicely. The story starts out where the previous installment left off, with Anna and Ethan going back to their own cities and trying to make things work between them. I felt like this installment was slightly shorter than the previous two and because they know each other so well, there weren’t as many dramatic issues between the two of them. They are still the same people though, so while they are each very honest with each other, they just can’t help have some communication issues. They are always scared of pushing the other one away by coming on too strongly. Except it is so clear that they are both crazy about each other. I guess there are worse problems to have, and if that is their biggest issue they are pretty perfect. Now that all three installments in the Empire State Trilogy have been released, as of today!, I would suggest that all fans of new adult and adult contemporary romance go out and pick up copies for themselves. This is the perfect trilogy to read back to back all in one sitting. You will not want to put down this steamy, extremely sexy and at the same time sweet story of love between Ethan and Anna. I loved it. Also, as a side note, I love how well all the covers work together.

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.
