Passion on Park Avenue
Passion on Park Avenue | Lauren Layne
10 posts | 10 read | 7 to read
From the author of the New York Times bestselling Stiletto and Oxford series, Passion on Park Avenue is the first in a charming new series following the unlikely friendship of three Upper East Side women as they struggle to achieve their dreams and find true love and happiness in the city that never sleeps. They vowed to steer clear of Manhattan's heartbreakers - but when it comes to love, some risks are worth taking... For as long as she can remember, Bronx-born Naomi Powell has had one goal: to prove her worth among the Upper East Side elite. Now, as the strongminded, sassy CEO of one of the biggest jewellery empires in the country, Naomi finally has exactly what she wants - but it's going to take more than just the right address to make Manhattan's upper class accept her. The worst offender is her new neighbour, Oliver Cunningham - the grown son of the family Naomi's mother worked for as a housekeeper. Oliver used to torment Naomi when they were children, and as a ridiculously attractive adult, he's tormenting her in entirely different ways. Let this sexy battle-of-wills commence... Filled with charm and heart and plenty of heart and wit, this entertaining series will hook you from the very first page. Look out for the next two titles, Love on Lexington Avenue and Marriage of Madison Avenue. Want more fun, fresh, flirty and very sexy rom-com? Check out Lauren's Oxford series and don't miss her warm, witty and sexy Wedding Belles series and the I Do, I Don't series, as well as the romantic standalones in the Love, Unexpectedly series.

It was good but not my favorite LL. I liked the setup of the friend trio. I liked both Naomi and Oliver. I liked how Oliver‘s father‘s Alzheimer‘s played a huge part in his life. The banter was still on point. But the relationship progress was slow and involved A LOT of waffling on both sides. It made the inevitable finale seem kind of rushed. Also, despite the title, while there was certainly chemistry it was surprisingly light on passion. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Quick read! Fun, light, great kick off to a long weekend of resting, reading, and prepping for dropping my daughter off at college. And yes, those are puppy paws, Max is sleeping at my feet.

Up early reading while everyone else is sleeping in. I love a quiet house! I was wanting a light, fluffy, funny read and so far this is fitting the bill! Happy Independence Day US Littens!

I urge you guys to pick this book up if you love contemporary romance, love friendship, love a slow-building second-chance intimate romance!

This is about a new trio who meet/become friends at the funeral of the guy they have all been dating at the same time! As for the romance, let me tell you, it's so sweet and full of intimacy!

This story is full of witty banter and steamy chemistry between the leads but its also not the usual lighthearted romantic comedy that Ms. Layne is known for. In fact, this one has a more serious tone, most reminiscent of her New Adult romances, which resulted in a bittersweet and poignant romance between two people who appear the opposite of each other but definitely is made for one another.

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 love the unique and imaginative way we are introduced to Naomi and the two women who become significant in her life and captures the essence of friendship. Tragic and hilarious how these women became acquainted due to a link none of them knew about before their chance meeting in Central Park. Retaining all the elements I love about Ms Layne's writing. Besides the slow burn romance brewing between the protagonists, there's a powerful message.

Kaylamburson I really want to read this one! Welcome back to Litsy!!!! 2mo
Ellesea @Kaylamburson It's definitely one of Lauren Layne's best novels and I'm looking forward to reading the other books in this series as they are published. 1mo
Kaylamburson Ohhh, that's good to hear!! Can the books function as standalones or is it really a typical series? 1mo

I'm slowly easing my way back into contemporary romance, and this was amazing! It's just that right amount of subtle steaminess! I adore hate-to-love slow-burn, and I was screaming when they finally kissed!
