A Week in New York (Empire State #1) by Louise Bay

A Week in New York
A Week in New York (The Empire State Series Book 1)


Anna Kirby is sick of dating. She's tired of heartbreak. Despite being smart, sexy, and funny, she's a magnet for men who don't deserve her.

A week's vacation in New York is the ultimate distraction from her most recent break-up, as well as a great place to meet a stranger and have some summer fun. But to protect her still-bruised heart, fun comes with rules. There will be no sharing stories, no swapping numbers, and no real names. Just one night of uncomplicated fun.

Super-successful serial seducer Ethan Scott has some rules of his own. He doesn't date, he doesn't stay the night, and he doesn't make any promises.

It should be a match made in heaven. But rules are made to be broken.

A Week in New York is the first in a series of three novellas.

***Not suitable for younger readers due to sexual content and language.***


I enjoyed One Week in New York way more than I thought I would. Because it was the first of three novellas I knew it might not end with happily ever after yet, but I really wanted it to. It is odd since most of the story is sexy time, but I wanted these two to be together forever. So good job to the author for making me really care about the characters so much in such a short amount of time.

Ethan is a workaholic who doesn't want a relationship. He has never had a girlfriend and he wants nothing to do with one. He has rules like no sleeping over, no taking a girl back to his place, no exchanging phone numbers, etc. He has sex and that is it. No more. He is upfront about that with the women he sleeps with, but that doesn't always mean they don't want more.

Anna is in New York for a week with a friend after her last boyfriend disaster. She doesn't seem to pick good guy and she is tired of being disappointed. She has decided no more men, at least for now. She just cannot do it all again. Then she meet Ethan and she tells him this is only sex. No relationship, no feelings, no promises that get broken, nothing like that. It seems perfect for them.

Of course the one night no strings turns into one week no string attached. The more they spend time together the more they like the other person. Only problem is Anna lives in London, Ethan in New York. A relationship would never work between them. 

This was a fun read. Yes it is a lot of sexy time, but as I said before I really want these characters to be together forever. I want their happily ever after! The end of this part is a little open so I need to go read part two now to see what happens!
