    A sweet romance filled with that angst between two characters in which both have a common past that must be dealt with or their future is at stakes of being together... Let me start off by saying that I have not read a Lauren Layne novel in such a long time. And to have this b...

    *****FOUR STARS***** {Netgalley ARC} If the kiss on Saturday had been the promise, this was the delivery. The sort of kiss that ruined a girl for all other kisses in the future. I?ve been a fan of Lauren Layne?s writing for several years now. I haven?t always loved...

    Thanks to Gallery Books for the early review copy! This book was kind of my breaking point in wishing that romance books came with ratings because I was expecting angst and steamy scenes in this but there's only one fade-to-black scene. So from now on, I'm rating romance books in my...

    3.5 STARS Since the day he?d met her, she?d gotten under his skin, pissed him off, confused the hell out of him, and he was damn grateful for it. Naomi Powell had brought him back to life... The premise to this series is absolutely; three women realize they've been sleeping w...

    I usually don't go for romance books that look like, well, this. Contemporary romance isn't my thing, but even if it was, rich white lady problems don't really interest me. However, Passion on Park Avenue turned out to be a bit better than I was expecting. I didn't like the che...

    Cute and fun with a touch of angst. Interesting premise and good use of the enemies-to-lovers trope. I liked Layne?s 21 Wall Street Series better, but this was still a quick, easy read that had you turning pages and escaping for a few hours. I felt that Naomi's grudge was a littl...

    Passion on Park Avenue is a fun, breezy romance about Naomi moving into the fancy apartment building she had once lived in during her youth and coming face-to-face with her childhood nemesis Oliver. He had tormented her when they were both children, but has now grown into a gorgeous, k...

    Passion on Park Avenue was fun and flirty! I absolutely adored the characters and I loved that this book had one of my favorite tropes ever, love to hate. It had a Sex and the City vibe and the way the story unfolded made it feel like a movie was playing in my head. With laugh out loud...

    I?ve read quite a few LL books and she never disappoints! I love her style of writing, her use of humor and snark and her ability to create fun, relatable characters that you like instantly. This is the first in a new series following a group of new friends living in NYC and I?m so...

    3.5 rounded up!. . . This was my first book by Lauren and it's the first book in the Central Park Pack series. I thought this book was a cute read. It's about Naomi Powell, who is CEO of one of the biggest jewelry companies in the country. She did not grow up like that though. She w...

    I received a copy of this title via NetGalley. It does not impact my review. I?m a big fan of Lauren Layne and always look forward to her books. While Passion on Park Avenue was enjoyable, I have to admit I found it a little underwhelming. I?m going to start with the things ...

    I have been a longtime fan of Lauren Layne since her Stiletto series years ago and am literally obsessed with everything she writes. She has a finger on the pulse of what people want and knows how to deliver. Her banter game is strong and one of my favorite things about her stories. Na...

    I liked some aspects of this story but for the most part, it just wasn?t clicking for me. I found the relationship the three women formed extremely awkward. I never got that feeling of bonding between them, it just felt odd to me. They'd make jokes about their connection and it felt ...

    Refreshing, clean romance. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sometimes it is so refreshing to read a fun, clean story that does not contain loads of drama and issues. I found this book to be a perfect story for a lazy afternoon. A fast yet touching story that gave me all the feels we look for in a ...

    'Naomi Powell had brought him back to life, made him realize that he hadn't died with his mom, or with his father's diagnosis; he'd just been living that way.' I hesitate to call this a 'sweet romance' because for many, 'sweet' has a negative connotation. But I found this a sweet,...

    Lauren Layne is back with a brand new series based in New York City, following three women, who meet in a pretty unique circumstance. They all meet at the funeral of the man they are all involved with, and it?s as awkward as you would expect. Surprisingly, this friendship was actuall...

    As a self-proclaimed Lauren Layne superfan, I was really looking forward to the start of a fun new NYC-set romance series from LL. I knew going into the book that this would be a sweet romance with fade-to-black sex scenes, so I tried to temper my expectations accordingly. The story fo...

    3.5 rounded up!. . . This was my first book by Lauren and it's the first book in the Central Park Pack series. I thought this book was a cute read. It's about Naomi Powell, who is CEO of one of the biggest jewelry companies in the country. She did not grow up like that though. She w...

    I usually don't go for romance books that look like, well, this. Contemporary romance isn't my thing, but even if it was, rich white lady problems don't really interest me. However, Passion on Park Avenue turned out to be a bit better than I was expecting. I didn't like the che...

    Cute and fun with a touch of angst. Interesting premise and good use of the enemies-to-lovers trope. I liked Layne?s 21 Wall Street Series better, but this was still a quick, easy read that had you turning pages and escaping for a few hours. I felt that Naomi's grudge was a littl...

    I have been a longtime fan of Lauren Layne since her Stiletto series years ago and am literally obsessed with everything she writes. She has a finger on the pulse of what people want and knows how to deliver. Her banter game is strong and one of my favorite things about her stories. Na...

    Originally posted at Booklovers For Life How freaking CUTE was this book!? Lauren Layne has yet to disappoint me with her fabulous contemporary romances, and Passion on Park Avenue, the first in her new Central Park Pact series, is no different. I had such a fun time with Naomi and ...

    I liked some aspects of this story but for the most part, it just wasn?t clicking for me. I found the relationship the three women formed extremely awkward. I never got that feeling of bonding between them, it just felt odd to me. They'd make jokes about their connection and it felt ...

    Refreshing, clean romance. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sometimes it is so refreshing to read a fun, clean story that does not contain loads of drama and issues. I found this book to be a perfect story for a lazy afternoon. A fast yet touching story that gave me all the feels we look for in a ...

    'Naomi Powell had brought him back to life, made him realize that he hadn't died with his mom, or with his father's diagnosis; he'd just been living that way.' I hesitate to call this a 'sweet romance' because for many, 'sweet' has a negative connotation. But I found this a sweet,...

    Lauren Layne is back with a brand new series based in New York City, following three women, who meet in a pretty unique circumstance. They all meet at the funeral of the man they are all involved with, and it?s as awkward as you would expect. Surprisingly, this friendship was actuall...

    As a self-proclaimed Lauren Layne superfan, I was really looking forward to the start of a fun new NYC-set romance series from LL. I knew going into the book that this would be a sweet romance with fade-to-black sex scenes, so I tried to temper my expectations accordingly. The story fo...

    This was a delightful and really quick read. I thought the meet cute between the three heroines for this series was awkward but cute and I enjoyed getting to know both Oliver and Naomi. There were times when I wanted to shake some damn sense into Naomi but for the most part, I enjoyed ...

    *****FOUR STARS***** {Netgalley ARC} If the kiss on Saturday had been the promise, this was the delivery. The sort of kiss that ruined a girl for all other kisses in the future. I?ve been a fan of Lauren Layne?s writing for several years now. I haven?t always loved...

    Thanks to Gallery Books for the early review copy! This book was kind of my breaking point in wishing that romance books came with ratings because I was expecting angst and steamy scenes in this but there's only one fade-to-black scene. So from now on, I'm rating romance books in my...

    I usually don't go for romance books that look like, well, this. Contemporary romance isn't my thing, but even if it was, rich white lady problems don't really interest me. However, Passion on Park Avenue turned out to be a bit better than I was expecting. I didn't like the che...

    Cute and fun with a touch of angst. Interesting premise and good use of the enemies-to-lovers trope. I liked Layne?s 21 Wall Street Series better, but this was still a quick, easy read that had you turning pages and escaping for a few hours. I felt that Naomi's grudge was a littl...

    Passion on Park Avenue was fun and flirty! I absolutely adored the characters and I loved that this book had one of my favorite tropes ever, love to hate. It had a Sex and the City vibe and the way the story unfolded made it feel like a movie was playing in my head. With laugh out loud...

    I liked some aspects of this story but for the most part, it just wasn?t clicking for me. I found the relationship the three women formed extremely awkward. I never got that feeling of bonding between them, it just felt odd to me. They'd make jokes about their connection and it felt ...

    Refreshing, clean romance. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sometimes it is so refreshing to read a fun, clean story that does not contain loads of drama and issues. I found this book to be a perfect story for a lazy afternoon. A fast yet touching story that gave me all the feels we look for in a ...

    As a self-proclaimed Lauren Layne superfan, I was really looking forward to the start of a fun new NYC-set romance series from LL. I knew going into the book that this would be a sweet romance with fade-to-black sex scenes, so I tried to temper my expectations accordingly. The story fo...

    Passion on Park Avenue starts off in sort of a bizarre way. Naomi is headed to the funeral of her boyfriend, who she found out (per his obituary) now has a widow. She meets said widow and another mistress the day of the funeral and they become fast friends. Now, while I ABSOLUTELY ...
