About Sightseeing in Manhattan
Hannah-Rae
On stage at a Magic Mike theme night with the music blaring and her hands trailing the oily, well-defined abs of another man is where Hannah-Rae realizes that maybe she isn’t as heartbroken about her cheating ex as she had first thought. She had known she needed to make some big decisions about life before flying out to NYC, she just hadn’t expected her heart would be calling all the shots.

Matt
He didn’t know why or how his passion for dance had come about. All he knew is that when he was on that stage throwing shapes down, he felt so alive in the moment that he almost forgot about the fact that his little sister was sick and there was absolutely nothing he could do about it. Almost.

When chance circumstances bring us together, will dancing bring us something more than either of us expected?

After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

My Review:

What a great finale to this series this proved to be. It is a soul mate romance and features Hannah-Rae, who has travelled from England after winning a competition enabling her to share an apartment in 425 Madison for a year, rent free. She’s travelled with her seeing-eye dog and is hoping to win a scholarship to a prestigious ballet school. She’s certainly not looking for love after leaving her cheating ex behind her. However, a night out with the other two competition winners ends up with her on stage with one of a group of male dancers. When she meets the same man whilst volunteering at a local dog shelter the attraction is still there! However, his Mum and young sister have issues, he’s trying to support them financially by working multiple jobs . . . . will love find a way to bring these soul mates together?

Matt is such a caring man, he’s an amazing match for the visually impaired Hannah-Rae. He even takes her sightseeing around Manhattan and helps her find somewhere to rehearse. I enjoyed reading how their relationship develops and there’s a truly inspirational ending though this is only achieved after unforeseen obstacles have been overcome.

I enjoyed reading this story which gives readers a very different point of view as Hannah-Rae embarks on her new life and shows that overcoming the difficulties encountered by what some class as disabilities can be inspirational! Both Hannah-Rae and Matt have show the importance of positivity in striving to achieve your dreams despite problems encountered en route.  I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Excerpt
Copyright @ 2019 C. Lesbirel

Letting go with one of his hands, he slides his fingertips up my back and to the nape of my neck. Some of my hair tangles between his fingers and he squeezes gently, pulling me up toward him again to meet another waiting kiss.

He spins me back around and commands me to take hold of the wheel and not let go. I do as I’m told and cling to it, not even caring about the direction or thinking about anything other than how good his hands feel, now that they are both free to roam over my body. He traces them over my hips and spans my waist before tracing up to the curve of my breasts and cupping them each, over the top of my cardigan.

“I like this, pink suits you,” he whispers softly into my ear.

“I guessed it was pink from the feel of it. It’s light and soft, like cotton candy.”

“It’s cute. Sometimes you look cute. I thought that when I picked you up. Now you don’t look cute, though.”

“I don’t? Then how do I look now?”

“Breath taking.” He says the word so easily that it sounds natural and believable. Even if I don’t believe it myself, he makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the entire city.

My long waves blow free in the evening breeze and it’s eerily quiet with the noise of the city in the distant background. “Your curves are the sexiest thing I’ve ever laid eyes on,” he murmurs as his hands come to rest on my waist, pinching gently as though trying to control himself. I’m not sure I want him to.
