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 part of The Empire State Series, a series of three novellas

Review
New Year in Manhattan is the final book in Louise Bay’s Empire State Trilogy. In this book Anna and Ethan have  decisions to make about their future together, although I never felt their HEA was an uncertain one. In the previous
In the previous instalments, Louise Bay has very successfully shared Ethan’s emotions, about Anna and their relationship. However, in this novella we understand the couple’s feelings equally and because of this I was finally able to say that I connected with Anna.
This third part of the trilogy is just as erotic as A Week in New York and Autumn in London. Sex is the means by which Ethan and Anna communicate their love and desire for each other and whilst I maintain that their insatiable sexual appetites are unrealistic, Louise Bay’s writing captures the intensity between the pair, meaning their actions appear natural rather than sordid.
New Year in Manhattan is an enjoyable and fitting ending to this series and I think that there will be many female readers left pining for Mr Scott and his talent! Louise Bay does not disappoint her fans with this novella and I can’t wait to see which sexy man see creates next!

About the Author
I write sexy, romantic, contemporary novels – the kind I like to read!
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the seventies and 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.
