Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne
Gallery Books, 2019
So the premise of the Central Park Pact series is that three women, a wife, a girlfriend, and a mistress, find out their husband/boyfriend/lover was actually the same jerk… but then he dies. Oddly, the three of them hit it off and vow to protect each other from lying, scumbag douche-men.
You in? I’m in.
As for Love on Lexington Avenue, the second book on this series…I wasn’t sure how much I was going to enjoy this book when I first got started but I ended up loving it. This a close proximity story wherein Claire (the wife) is remodeling her house and Scott, her gruff, flannel-wearing contractor, meet and immediately butt heads. Yay.
But the way their relationship evolves is so… emotional and slow-burny and sweet. Basically, they’re both everything neither one of them knew they’d always wanted and it’s perfection.
Love on Lexington Avenue is set to release on September 17th (my birthday!). Thank you Netgalley and Gallery Books for the chance to read an advanced copy. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
