    Such a fun and cute read

    Every Lauren Layne book I've read has been an enjoyable experience. Passion on Park Avenue is no different. I adored this book! Loved the slow burning enemies to lovers feel, the wonderful back and forth banter, and the delicious tension that developed between the main characters. It was such a cute, fun read. I couldn't get enough. I'm pretty sure I loved Oliver right away. He seemed like a really good guy who is very loyal to his family. Sexy, smart, funny and a family man what's not to love. I will admit it took a while to like Naomi. I'm not sure what it was about her but for the first half of the book, she rubbed me the wrong way. Also, I'm not big on revenge. So her plans to stick it to those who treated her poorly when she was younger made me cringe. I did really come to like her in the end. She became more real and caring. My only complaint of this book is that I wish the big reveal would have come sooner. And Oliver's reaction was a giant let down. Of course this didn't make me want to stop reading. In the center of this story is the friendship that is formed between three women who find out they were sleeping with the same man. I am obsessed with their pact and their friendship. Instead of being catty or turning against each other, they rallied together and encouraged one another; building a lifelong bond. I can't wait to see more of this friendship bloom. Book 1 in the Central Park Pact series is a hit. I'm eager and excited to read the other girls's story.

    Sweet Romance!

    Naomi and Oliver were great characters. I thoroughly enjoyed watching them connect and learn about their histories. Oliver is kind, caring and so not what Naomi remembers or perceived him to be. Naomi is strong and feisty, I loved her spunk. She is not the same little girl that she was when Oliver knew her as a child. When she moves into his building after her mother passes, it is to show them what she has become. But as their attraction and interactions grow, Naomi isn’t ready to confront this new Oliver about what happened in the past. Together they had some amazing interactions. I loved their building heat between the two and it was great watching them work through their struggles as they figure everything out. I also liked how sweet and caring she was with his father, and how much she grew emotionally through this story. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    ...love, laughter and insight.

    Count on Layne to help you find your smile. Hidden in every heartache is a ray of sunshine that her stories always manage to find. Passion on Park Avenue is a tad cliched but no less fulfilling. I love the message lurking in the shadows of Naomi and Oliver's relationship. The housekeeper's daughter and her childhood nemesis are at a crossroads. Do they leave the past behind or allow the painful memories to destroy any chance of a future? Ms. Layne picked the sweetest way to voice her opinion on the value of self worth. With love, laughter and insight.

    Passion with Style!

    Naomi Powell has a passion for style in her bones, Louboutins on her feet and a giant chip on her shoulder. This successful accessory company mogul may have a company worth a billion dollars, but her inner eye can still see her other-side-of-the-tracks upbringing. Although Bronx-born and raised, she lived on Park Avenue for one year when her mom was a live-in housekeeper for the Cunninghams. That year on Park Avenue, and how it abruptly ended, profoundly changed Naomi. When out of the blue Naomi gets an opportunity to go back and live at that same Park Avenue address, Naomi makes a decision that once again may profoundly change her life. First off, this book has the best opening chapter for a series! Ms. Layne brilliantly sketches out how the Central Park Pact comes to be. Mixing up betrayal and death with a big dose of wit and laughter, we get to bond with three women who are all different yet in many ways the same. It is their stories that will make up this series, and I cannot wait for the next one! As for Naomi’s journey, she finds herself facing her former childhood nemesis Oliver Cunningham. Except he really isn’t the “Ollie” of old anymore. No, this Oliver seems new and improved to Naomi except he doesn’t remember the “Naomi Fields” of his childhood. A childhood, it turns out, left Oliver scarred as well despite the wealth and trappings of Park Avenue. As Naomi and Oliver “frenemy” their way through the story, they both learn that the truth under the surface can be brutal and wonderful. What I loved the best was that Naomi got a chance to grow, and Oliver got a chance to shine. And together, they both got a chance to truly live and love! As I said, I cannot wait for the next story in this series!

    Remember

    Naomi has always wanted one thing: an address in the Upper East Side. Only it takes more than address to have the New York Elite accept her. She is already a strong and powerful woman in her own right, owning a jewelry empire as she does. What more can she do to get where she wants to be? Oliver has always had a thing for Naomi. They grew up together of a sort, as her mother worked for his family. She does not want an association with him at this point, though. She wants to be accepted on her own merits. Can he convince her to try a little with him? This story felt kind of off to me for some reason. I liked the characters and the story just fine. It just seemed to start off slower than the pace is usually from this author. Overall I liked the struggle and story. ***This early copy was given in exchange from Netgalley and its publishers.
