    A lovely holiday romance!

    This holiday themed romance takes two opposites who’ve both suffered grief and loss, and gives them a Christmas to remember. Bestselling crime writer Lucas Blade lost his wife three years ago in a freak accident. Since then, he’s been somewhat of a recluse, and since the accident happened around Christmas, it’s an especially difficult time of year. To top it off, he’s got writer’s block. His agent and editor are expecting something miraculous and so far he’s only got a lump of coal to give them. Eva Jordan’s event planning company, Urban Genies, gets a variety of requests, and this one from a favored older client is just what she needs to get her out of the doldrums of no longer having her beloved grandmother around. She’s been tasked with housesitting for the woman’s grandson and decorating up his penthouse suite for Christmas while he’s away in Vermont. She’s ready to cook up a storm of good meals and put in some holiday cheer when her Christmas plans get scrooged – Lucas is still in residence! The last thing Lucas needs is a bustling, singing housekeeper creating delicious treats and spreading holiday cheer. He wants her gone. But a storm in the making has other plans for these two. The view from Lucas’s penthouse shows that a blizzard is in full swing and they might as well hunker down and make the best of things. And lo and behold – something about Eva makes Lucas’s brain snap back to attention. It’s not just that she’s a cheerful, attractive woman. She’s got something else that makes his writer’s muse sit up and take notice and before long, he’s writing up a storm while trying to ignore the rather obvious attraction that sparks between them. When that proves impossible, they quickly find that sharing each other’s beds leads to sharing some more emotional moments. But soon enough Christmas will be over, the snowstorm will abate, and they’ll go back to their lonely lives – unless they can admit that what’s happening between them is more than just a passing fancy. What a delightful story! Though there are some heavier moments, with the grief experienced by Lucas over the loss of his wife (and more details about his marriage that emerge) and Eva’s struggles to put a happy face on losing her grandmother a year earlier, it makes for a bond between them that won’t be easily broken. They both know what it’s like to put on a face for others, and can see that they are kindred spirits. The chemistry between them might be unwanted at first, but it soon leads to some steamy scenes, and as neither have had a significant relationship in a while, it’s bound to deepen their feelings for each other. I really enjoyed Lucas’s point of view and his creative process in writing about particularly bloody crimes. It was fun to have all that in the middle of a romance book and Eva’s reaction to his writing is pretty similar to what mine would have been! I loved how the city of New York features as the setting and the relationship that Eva has with her two co-workers Paige and Frankie shows the depth of their affection and friendship. (I also thought it was quite amusing that Frankie was a huge fan of Lucas’s books). The ending of the story was laugh out loud funny while being sweet and perfectly lovely. I highly recommend this romance, and I’m looking forward to catching up on the series!

    Christmas Miracle of Love

    What do you get when you cross an optimistic, honest and trusting woman and a cynical, isolated, depressed, horror writer? You get a Christmas miracle of a surprisingly sweet, heartwarming, sparks a flying and witty romance. Eva is the romantic of the group and I loved getting more insight into her character. She and Lucas don't agree on much when they first meet, but there is definitely major chemistry between them from the get go. Sarah Morgan does a fantastic job at creating characters that you can relate to and draws you into the story. I felt the emotions that each of them were going through as they worked through their individual grief with the help of each other. I have enjoyed this entire series, but this is my favorite so far. Pick up a copy today. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Such a great series!

    Hallmark needs to make an adult channel just for books like this! I want an adaptation so bad. Miracle on 5th Avenue is a great holiday-themed romance (with adult content) but it's definitely not all happy googly eyes. A damaged, grieving, angry man: a famous crime writer with writer's block who has met his worst nightmare...but also his muse. Hate and anger turns to lust and sexy times. If this type of Christmas book is up your ally, check it out! My favorite quote: “The news presents only the bad side of humanity, Mr. Blade, and it does it on a global scale. It doesn’t report the millions of small, unreported acts of kindness that take place on a daily basis in communities. People help old ladies across the street, they bring their neighbors tea when they’re sick. You don’t hear about it because good news isn’t entertainment, even though it’s those deeds that hold society together. Bad news is a commodity and the media trade in that.” Sarah Morgan's From Manhattan with Love series includes the following installments as of December 2016. Miracle on 5th Avenue was the first book I have ever read from this series or the author and I enjoyed it as a standalone. #0.5: Midnight at Tiffany's #1: Sleepless in Manhattan #2: Sunset in Central Park #3: Miracle on 5th Avenue #4: New York, Actually #5: Meet Me in the Hamptons #6: Moonlight over Manhattan
