Manhattan Dreaming by Anita Heiss is part of a series of four books. The first two books link together, but this one is easy to read as a stand-alone.
Lauren is in what seems to be a very one-sided relationship. Her guy Adam is a footy player and his social media presence is disturbing to her. There always seems to be a bounty of beauties all over him, and new scandals being plastered all over the media.
When Lauren is offered an amazing opportunity to move to New York for a year and work at the Smithsonian, she feels all her dreams have come true. Except for Adam, who doesn’t seem to really care too much about what she does. He makes it very clear that he won’t be sitting and waiting for her return.
After much emotional searching, Lauren leaves for New York. But, even though she ended her relationship with Adam, she’s still clinging to hope.
She still checks his social media and sends him the odd message from time to time which he either answers briefly or not at all. Laurens’s job is amazing and the excitement of New York and the local males that show their interest in her help to take her mind off Adam from time to time.
As her time in New York nears its end she battles with her emotions. Could she still have something with Adam? Or should she focus on one of the New York suitors?
I really enjoyed this book and love how Anita allows her lead characters to be perfectly imperfect.
