Book Review - Passion on Park Avenue by Lauren Layne

ABOUT THE BOOK


An Oprah.com Best Romance Novel of 2019!

“Perfect for readers who love the dishy women's fiction of Candace Bushnell.” —Booklist

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Stiletto and Oxford series, the first in a sizzling new series following the unlikely friendship of three Upper East Side women as they struggle to achieve their dreams and find true love and happiness in the city that never sleeps.

For as long as she can remember, Bronx-born Naomi Powell has had one goal: to prove her worth among the Upper East Side elite—the same people for which her mom worked as a housekeeper. Now, as the strongminded, sassy CEO of one of the biggest jewelry empires in the country, Naomi finally has exactly what she wants—but it’s going to take more than just the right address to make Manhattan’s upper class stop treating her like an outsider.

The worst offender is her new neighbor, Oliver Cunningham—the grown son of the very family Naomi’s mother used to work for. Oliver used to torment Naomi when they were children, and as a ridiculously attractive adult, he’s tormenting her in entirely different ways. Now they find themselves engaged in a battle-of-wills that will either consume or destroy them.

“Strong characters and relatable situations elevate Layne’s bighearted contemporary...[which] digs into class differences, emotional baggage, and the reality of dealing with aging parents” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). With the sexy combination of charm, heart, and snark, Lauren Layne’s new series is perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Sally Thorne.

REVIEW

I loved Lauren Layne's adventure into Women's Literature.  Of course, this is the Romance that I've come to expect and love from Lauren Layne, but it also goes a step farther by following the impact and friendship that comes from being wronged by the same man.  Naomi is stubborn and prideful and also passionate and following her personal growth as she falls in love with her childhood nemesis Oliver is such a good story I couldn't put it down until I was done.  I recommend for anyone who is a fan of Lauren Layne will enjoy this book.  Anyone who enjoys stories with character growth and well-written characters will love this book.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
