You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?
Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.
In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.
The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.
Before I even start this review can we talk about the cover? Isn’t it eye catching and beautiful? After reading All The Frogs In Manhattan, I feel like the girl on the cover portrays Gemma absolutely perfectly.
I’ve read almost all of Carrie Aarons books and I feel like she releases a book when I’m about to fall into a reading slump or when I need a fun loving book to put me into a good mood. Carrie never lets me down and she definitely delivered in All The Frogs In Manhattan.
All The Frogs In Manhattan is something a little different from Carrie. This time she’s writing a romantic comedy and I really enjoyed her writing style. I’ve seen her writing grow from each book I’ve read by her. I honestly can’t wait to read more of her books.
Gemma is a character that I absolutely loved. She was sarcastic, unapologetic about who she was, she wasn’t afraid to be sexually active, she was funny and I personally really loved her. She’s probably one of my favorite Carrie Aarons characters.
Oliver is not your typical alpha male, he is actually a nerd. A very sexy, sweet, charming nerd. I personally liked him.
I thought the relationship between Gemma and Oliver was sweet. It started out slow burning and I absolutely loved every minute of it. If you’re looking for a quick and easy, funny read you should definitely read All The Frogs In Manhattan.
About The Author
Author of romance novels such as Red Card and On Thin Ice, Carrie Aarons writes sexy, swoony and sarcastic characters who won’t get out of her head until she puts them down on a page.
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book, and can’t imagine a better or more maddening profession.
When she isn’t in a writing coma, Carrie is chasing her Great Dane/Lab puppy through the dog parks of New Jersey, or trying to make her husband binge watch the latest Netflix craze.
