Sunset in Central Park (Hqn)
Sunset in Central Park (Hqn) - Sarah Morgan Shelving this as brother's best friend even though it's best friend's brother...cause...convenient.

It was a sweet story; I don't have too many negatives. My major problem was the hero (Matt) was utterly perfect. I think he might've been a protective jackass of his sister in the prior book, but here he makes no mistakes. None. He even knew how to handle Frankie's reluctance better than her own best friend. He shows her great sex the first time. He makes her realize she needs to move on from her past, while simultaneously convincing her to start a future with him. Matt's been in love with Frankie since forever.

He's a miracle worker. If this sounds snarky, maybe it's meant to be....the book was light and readable but if I were looking for a hero similar to this I'd probably fall back to [b:Wild at Whiskey Creek|29436302|Wild at Whiskey Creek (Hellcat Canyon, #2)|Julie Anne Long|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1473678817s/29436302.jpg|49704361] (of course)...or friends to lovers that is [b:Sutphin Boulevard|25404499|Sutphin Boulevard (Five Boroughs, #1)|Santino Hassell|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1435776893s/25404499.jpg|45158379] with a patient, steady, dependable guy, or slow burn new to each other but friends first [b:The Hot Shot|29541797|The Hot Shot (Game On, #4)|Kristen Callihan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1489760751s/29541797.jpg|49842497]

It was cute, and I won't hesitate to read another, but it's just not my favorite the genre has to offer.

Niby thriller, ale jednak nie, czyli Guillame Musso po raz kolejny
Central Park - Guillaume Musso

Znany raczej z powieści należących do gatunku realizmu magicznego  Guillame Musso czasem jednak robi skok w bok. Tak było w „Telefonie od anioła”, i tak też jest w przypadku „Central Parku”. Ponownie staniemy się świadkami rodzącego się uczucia między dwojgiem ludzi, i ponownie nastąpi to w bardzo nietypowych, interesujących okolicznościach.

 

Bohaterów poznajemy na ławce w parku. Budzą się nie dość, że obok siebie, obcy, i nie dość, że spięci kajdankami (w sensie: ze sobą spięci), to jeszcze ani ona, ani on nie potrafią sobie przypomnieć końcówki poprzedniego wieczoru. Normalnie bym się takim początkiem niespecjalnie zainteresował – brzmi jak rozpoczęcie kolejnej powieści sensacyjno-kryminalnej z gatunku zabili go i uciekł, ale to jest Musso. Znając już jego kilka książek wiem, że można się spodziewać czegoś nieprzewidzianego, zaskakującego. A przy tym lektury lekkiej i niewymagającej. Super na lato.

 

I tak też jest; początkowy thriller wydaje się iść utartą ścieżką, podczas lektury po głowie chodzą nazwiska żyjących z tego gatunku rzemieślników, Tess Gerritsen, Alex Kava itp. Aż tu nagle przychodzi to, na co fan Musso czeka i od tego momentu trudno być niezadowolonym czytelnikiem. Książka faktycznie zbacza z drogi w kierunku zupełnie innych, nieprzewidzianych tematów, i pozostając lekturą lekką dostarcza jednak coś więcej, niż po prostu kolejny thriller z happy endem.

 

Czasem tak jest, że czytelnik robi sobie przerwę od literatury. Bo jakaś powieść go zmęczyła, bo zaczął kilka różnych, a żadna nie chce wciągnąć. I tu z pomocą przychodzi Guillame Musso – mój wybór numer jeden w takich literacko-kacowych sytuacjach. Przy jego książkach się odpoczywa wciąż jednak czytając, czyli można uciec od innego rodzaju kaca: wywołanego odstawieniem książek. Doskonały na chwile z cyklu chcę czytać ale sam nie wiem czego chcę, polecam, sprawdzone.

Sunset in Central Park By Sarah Morgan 99 cents
Sunset in Central Park (Hqn) - Sarah Morgan

Love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. After witnessing the fallout of her parents' divorce, she's seen the devastation an overload of emotion can cause. The only man she feels comfortable with is her friend Matt—but that's strictly platonic. If only she found it easier to ignore the way he makes her heart race… 

 

Matt Walker has loved Frankie for years but, sensing how fragile she is beneath her feisty exterior, has always played it cool. But then he uncovers new depths to the girl he's known forever and doesn't want to wait a moment longer. He knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can Matt persuade her to trust him with her heart and kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?

And Tango Makes Three
And Tango Makes Three - Justin Richardson,Henry Cole,Peter Parnell

Among much scrutiny, And Tango Makes Three is a story about two dad penguins who care for an abandoned egg. The egg hatches and Tango makes her grand appearance. This nonfiction story, takes place in Central Park Zoo in New York and is a part of the banned books collection. I agree that this text is a little risqué and should be used for special purposes to make sure no parents get offended. This book would be great in the counselors office for a child who has a homosexual family and needs some encouragement or who may have questions regarding what homosexuality entails. This book is leveled at a 720L on the Lexile system.

A Sweet Friends-to-Lovers Romance
Sunset in Central Park (Hqn) - Sarah Morgan

“Sunset in Central Park,” she murmured. “It doesn’t get any more perfect.”
They were standing side by side, close but not quite touching.
He wondered if she was as aware of him as he was of her.
And then she turned her head to look at him and he saw the heat of his own desire reflected in her eyes.

 

Sarah Morgan just keeps cranking out one amazing romance after another. Based around a friends-to-lovers trope, this particular story was as heartwarming as it was sensual, while still keeping that feeling of closeness and friendship this series has been built on.

 

I so enjoy reading anything by Sarah Morgan. She has a way of creating realistic characters who are completely likable, flaws and all, and who you can’t help cheer on. And boy doesn’t that describe Frankie the commitment-phobe. She was a fun character in some ways, with her comical Eeyore-like views on relationships, and a super loyal best friend to Eva and Paige.
