Passion on Park Avenue is the first in a new series from @laurenlayneauthor and follows Naomi. A girl who came from humbled beginnings in the Bronx and now is topping all of the 30-under-30 lists. She meets two close friends Audrey and Claire under bizarre circumstances and they make a pact: never let one another be duped by a man again.
Naomi gets a call that an apartment on Park Ave that she “applied” for is now available and she’s been invited for a tenant interview. There she meets Oliver and instantly recognizes him as the young boy who contributed to shattering her childhood but he doesn’t seem to be able to place her. She realizes her mother must’ve applied for the apartment before she died and Naomi soon understands it was to get some closure from a colored history with Oliver’s family.
But Oliver isn’t a young boy any more and no matter how much she should hate him she finds herself like a moth to a flame instead. And the feeling is mutual. Verbal sparring and electric connections aside, will Naomi ever be able to move on and forget the past? .
I really LOVED this one! It’s such a quick read that I finished it in a few hours. If you know anything about what I read then you know hate-to-love is my absolute TOP trope in romances. The banter and sarcastic quips are golden. If you’ve been wanting to try reading romance but don’t want all the explicit details this one would be a great place to start! It’s all anticipation laced with sexual tension without going into all the specifics - and I still loved it! This is the first in @laurenlayneauthor new Central Park Pact Series and I can’t wait for the next book already! This one releases TOMORROW so preorder a copy today or go grab one tomorrow when it’s released!!
Thanks to Gallery Books, Lisa Filipe and NetGalley for an advanced copy to review. All opinions are my own!
