Jessie's just arrived in New York, hoping to forget about her awful ex.

New Yorker Finn is in love with his best friend's girlfriend.

They might be perfect together, but in a city of eight million people, will they ever find each other?

Jessie and her best friend Emma have arrived in New York to stay with Jessie's mom. Jessie just got out of a relationship and hopes to find something (someone!) new in The Big Apple.

Finn is in love with his best friend's girlfriend. Everything's messed up for him, but he can't seem to get her out of his mind. To top that off, his father wants that he will be trained to do the same thing as he's done all those years - insurance - and that's one thing Finn doesn't know how to deal with.

This was a very cute summer read and an ultimate feel good book. The storyline wasn't that original, nor was the accidental bumping into eachother thing, but it made an entertaining read that made me rapidly flip the pages. Jessie was a nice and sympathetic character and it was nice to have her as the main character. Finn made a nice character as well - he was sweet and shy. But that is also one of my complaints about them; I missed some edge.

Nontheless, it made for a great read and I really enjoyed myself while flipping the pages. If you're looking for a light read and don't mind some clichés, this is the book you'll want to read.

My overall rating:

A four minus for Jessie and Finn because they keept me entertained with their cute story


  1. I loved this book! But I agree with you that there were some clichés. I did love Finn though! And it was very feel-good :) Great review!

  2. Love the sound of this one, it looks really cute and fun! Glad you enjoyed it overall - great review :).
