Mister Manhatten A Cocky Hero Club book by Alexandria Sure
My Thursday afternoon meeting was a no show. Imagine my surprise when a drenched, flustered brunette slipped into the booth across from me, acting like she was supposed to be there.
When she slipped back out with a snappy goodbye, I never thought I’d see her again.
Until I walked into my Friday morning meeting.
At first, I didn’t recognize her—she was dry this time. But from the look on her face, she recognized me.
When she gave the worst pitch I’ve ever sat through, I thought my boss, and mentor, was going to show her the door—except he accepts the proposal and tells me we have to work together.
I didn’t anticipate I would like her, let alone be interested in her. Sure, she was hot and sassy.
But something about her rubbed me the wrong way.
And yet I couldn’t stop thinking about her.
So, when she leaves the room and her phone chimes with a new text, I knew I wasn’t supposed to look.
I also knew I wasn’t supposed to cancel her date for later that evening.
And I definitely knew I wasn’t supposed to delete the entire exchange, so she had no idea what I’d done.
But I did. And then I showed up at the restaurant, pretending like this was all a big coincidence.
When the date is over, I want more. I need more.
We start pretend-dating because she needs practice, and I tell myself, New York’s most eligible billionaire bachelor, that this is just a bit of fun.
What could possibly go wrong?
Confession time, cocky jerks are not my trope. I almost didn’t read this because I don’t like my heroes to be mean, but then I thought you know what, that’s not always the case. Sometimes their cockiness can be sexy and it’s not always the big jerk– So I picked it up and boy was I glad I did. This was my first Alexandria Sure novel. It had that ‘it’ thing. You know when you start reading and you know there is something special? The chance meeting between Anderson and Jurnee hooked me from the start. Mister Manhatten has great side characters. I found myself smiling at the banter between Jurnee and her best friend Derek as well as Anderson and his boys.
This also has some super cute college football references that made me grin.
The love story between Anderson and Jurnee is often filled with misunderstandings, but it’s their journey.
If you want a sweet, fast-paced read with a lot of smiles and a lot of heart, then Mister Manhatten is your book!
