Love on Lexington Avenue Central Park Pact #2 ☆ Ng out her late husband was not the man she thought he was Determined to rid her home of anything that reminds her of her cheating husband Claire sets out to redesign her boring beige Upper East Side brownstone and make it something all her own But what starts out as a simple renovation becomes a lot complicated when she meets her bad tempered contractor Scott Turner Scott bluntly makes it known to Claire that he only took on her house for a change of pace from the corporate offices and swanky hot Love on Lexington Avenue is a sweet and charming romance about two cynical people who've been jaded by past loves Recently widowed Claire is trying to move on with her life after finding out her dead husband was a serial philanderer When she hires surly contractor Scott to renovate her home sparks fly but both are too cautious to admit what's in their heartsThis was a fun light fluffy read I mean who doesn't like a romance between two reluctant participants hell bent on remaining single? I sure do And there were plenty of witty banter between our two main characters as they try to deny their attraction to each other and hide behind their thorny exteriorsAnd yet while I enjoyed this book I don't find it particularly memorable just like the first book in the series In fact I find both of them fairly superficial in their treatment of love and conflict with everyone exaggerating their feelings when it comes to minor things and hiding the real nuances away Also for a romance this series is pretty PG rated with no blush worthy scenes at all If you're someone who enjoys romances but shies away from sex scenes this may be the series for you But I prefer my romances with some steam because all that buildup should lead somewhere and it's realistic when it's included in the bookStill I'm having fun reading this series and I'll definitely continue There's one book to come and I'm already looking forward to it Text É Love on Lexington Avenue Central Park Pact #2 Ï Lauren Layne

Lauren Layne Ï Love on Lexington Avenue Central Park Pact #2 Book A Goodreads Best Romance “Fans of The Devil Wears Prada will flip over Love on Lexington Avenue” Karen Hawkins New York Times bestselling author From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne comes the second delightfully charming installment in the Central Park Pact series following a young widow whose newfound cynicism about love is challenged by a sexy rough around the edges contractorThere are no good men left in New York City At least that’s Claire Hayes’s conviction after findi Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne is a 2019 Gallery Books publication A little flat but still a light entertaining readI loved the first book in this trilogy and have been looking forward to reading this second installment I was slightly surprised that Claire’s story was sandwiched in the middle I thought Claire the one who was legally married to the scoundrel that brought these women together deserved the strongest feature and as such she’d have the starring role in the finale Shows how much I know After discovering her deceased husband was a serial philanderer Claire is trying to move on with her life Despite knowing her husband was a cheat she’s having a hard time letting go of her feelings for him Also complicating her ability to move forward is her secret vow to never fall in love again However determined to step outside her comfort zone Claire decides to shake things up in her life For starters she decides to renovate her Brownstone and not necessarily in a low key traditional manner Enter Scott Turner the contractor Claire wants to hire to help with the remodel For Scott redoing Claire’s home is small potatoes compared to his usual jobs Because of that he initially planned to pass on the job thinking it beneath him and not worth the bother of dealing with the rich spoiled ‘princess’ type he presumes Claire to be But the Brownstone instantly calls to him so despite getting off to a rocky start with Claire it’s a job he can’t refuse Despite their differences Claire finds Scott easy to confide in and before he knows what has hit him he gets sucked into Claire’s plan to enjoy the pleasurable benefits of romance without the emotional connections that could lead to heartache Although Scott cheers Claire on seeing her going out with other men casual though it may be is driving him crazy This is a nice easy to read contemporary romance with a light tone all throughout Yet I had hoped for a story with a bit emotional depth for Claire This book unfortunately is a little bland and all too predictable Not to over analyze a book intended to be fun and humorous but in my opinion casual hookups replacing traditional dating romance and relationships have become a very repetitive storyline that crops up entirely too often in contemporary romance For me it has become a boring unimaginative plot element that I have a hard time relating to That said the chemistry between Claire and Scott has some sizzle and I enjoyed their banter Character growth saves the story from being pure fluff and despite its predictability it might be the right book for you if concentrating on heavy topics sounds too depressing right now I loved the super cute ending and I did close the book with a smile on my face which is something to be grateful for I’m still looking forward to Audrey’s story and am hoping the trilogy closes on a high note So despite feeling a little let down by this one it is still a mood lifter and was an enjoyable enough read overall 3 stars
