She’ll risk everything for her own Christmas miracle…
Determined to conquer a lifetime of shyness, Harriet Knight challenges herself to do one thing a day in December that scares her, including celebrating Christmas without her family. But when dog walker Harriet meets her newest client, exuberant spaniel Madi, she adds an extra challenge to her list—dealing with Madi’s temporary dog sitter, gruff doctor Ethan Black, and their very unexpected chemistry.
Ethan thought he was used to chaos, until he met Madi—how can one tiny dog cause such mayhem? To Ethan, the solution is simple—he will pay Harriet to share his New York apartment and provide twenty-four-hour care. But there’s nothing simple about how Harriet makes him feel.
Ethan’s kisses make Harriet shine brighter than the stars over moonlit Manhattan. But when his dog-sitting duties are over and Harriet returns to her own home, will she dare to take the biggest challenge of all—letting Ethan know he has her heart for life, not just for Christmas?
Review: Moonlight Over Manhattan by Sarah Morgan is a dazzling contemporary romance read. I was hooked from the beginning to end. Relationship issues, work issues, and family issues are explored within these pages. The plot was enticing. Steady going with scenes that speed up in certain spots. Some parts were sad, funny, and sweet. Sarah Morgan brought two opposites together in this title. Their personalities weren’t the only thing they had in opposite form. Their families to career choices differed by great means. Sometimes its not how much someone has in common with us, but how much different they are from us…that makes the compatibility good. This underlying theme was used.
Harriet is one of the main characters. She’s outgoing when it comes to her dog walking business. Dogs are her love. It’s easy to love her fun, warm, and sweet side. But underneath that Harriet also has a sassier side and that doesn’t come out until another character makes his appearance. Harriet is someone I would to hangout with and have as a friend. She’s that amazing. Caring, gentle, positive beam of sunshine.
Next, there’s the other protagonist. He’s more straight to the point. An ER doctor who has shut off all of his emotions. When it comes to feeling things, Ethan believes he doesn’t have a heart. Yet, Harriet knows he has one. He cares about his family and about his patients. The responsibility he shows in his work also proves that. Ethan is divorced. After his ex-wife, Ethan isn’t one for a long term relationship. He’s open to sex…and sex with one particular woman…Harriet.
Both Harriet and Ethannare pulled together when his sister asks him to watch over her dog. Ethan knows nothing about caring for a dog. Feeling helpless, he enlists Harriet’s help. But then that also backfires. Placing him on a bad spot with Harriet. Harriet still takes the job, all for helping the dog. But then complications arise when both are stuck in close quarters…Harriet is still working on challenging herself to things she never did. Ethan starts off with wanting to help her and to get closer to her. Yet, fate has a way of knocking some of their plans. Not falling in love would be one of them…
Overall, Sarah Morgan has done it again. Created another sexy yet beautiful tale. I fell in love with the characters immediately. The smaller characters were lovable, too. Characters like a neighbor, siblings, and coworkers made this a hilarious read. I laughed and felt like I was there with the them all. Moonlight Over Manhattan offers a promise of fun, love, and new beginnings. I highly recommend it to all.
