Favorite Quotes:



I can't help feeling a little despondent that the condom in my purse has passed its expiry date.


I feel as if she's the Great White Shark at the top of the food chain and I'm a little seal she's going to eat in one mouthful.


It was hard to hide from someone who knew all your secrets.  It felt like an invasion of privacy, as if she'd given him a key that he'd refused to return. 


Embarrassment burned through her like acid on metal.  Being around him made her feel like a gawky, clumsy teenager, all hormones and no finesse.


You always tease me, but I understand men better than you think... If they can't drill a hole in it, have sex with it, get drunk on it, kick it around a field, or watch it on a massive screen, they're mostly not interested.  That's the way the male brain is programmed.


You invented drama.  You could marry drama, have its babies - which, by the way, would be called Crisis and Panic - and live happily ever after.


...when I'm with a woman, I'm with a woman.  She is my starter, my main course and my desert.  There are no side dishes.


 

My Review:


Sleepless in Manhattan is my first Sarah Morgan read, how is that when she has over seventy books under her listing?  But I plan to remedy my folly by continuing on with more books in this series, as I adored this book from start to finish.  The writing was crisp and simply stellar.  The dialogues were witty and snappy, and the storyline and narrative were emotive, deliciously steamy, cleverly amusing, and engrossing.  I remained engaged throughout this delightful tale and loved all the quirky characters, even when they were being difficult.  I am more than eager to dive into books two and three that feature the other two friends of this tight-knit group.
