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.

The Empire State Series concludes in New Year in Manhattan.

Anna and Ethan are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Their previous rules no longer apply.

In order to make things work, Anna needs to let go of her past and take a risk with Ethan. Ethan needs to learn how to deal with the ambiguity of a relationship.

Long-distance relationships are never easy and their relationship is fragile. For how long can it survive under the pressure of separation? Are either of them prepared to give up what they have for the other?

But distance isn’t the only obstacle Anna and Ethan face. Ultimately they have to decide whether they want to share a future together.

This is my first time with Louise Bay's books. Thankfully with the final installment I couldn't wait to see what this series was like.

The series brought a gorgeous romance between two people from two different continents, who wouldn't of thought that week long hook up would turn into more. As time and separation walk on by, they both realised that they both had more feelings for each other then they thought initially. During their story and over the three books, they reach everyday struggles and road blocks to prevent them being together, however they both find their way is much better. The setting over two counties was great addition to the story how long distance relationship can always be an option.

The additional characters through the series were a fabulous addition from Ethan's sister and Anna's bestie, they brought a bit of humor but also encouragement to ensure Anna and Ethan's feeling were act upon to ensure right choices were made and not let the love of your life slip through their fingers.
Overall it a great series that was an easy read with a splash of humour aswell.

I write sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind I like to read. My books Faithful and Hopeful are stand-alone novels although there are some overlapping characters. The Empire State Series of novellas starts with A Week in New York.
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, I love all things romantic. There's not enough of it in real life so I'll settle for books and films.
I love the rain, the West Wing, London, days when you don't have to wear make-up, being alone, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
Hearing from readers is the best thing in the world so get in touch!
