Sadie, Darcy, and Rosanna are living together in New York City the summer before their freshman year of college begins. With no parents, no rules, and an entire city to explore, these three girls are on the verge of the best summer of their lives.
Sadie is a native New Yorker. She is hopeful, romantic, and an eternal optimist who is ready to find her soul mate. Then she meets her dream boy: cute, funny, and quirky in all the right ways. The chemistry between them is unreal. Could he be the one?
Darcy is a free spirit from SoCal with rebellious tendencies and unlimited financial resources. Moving to New York City is just another adventure for her. Darcy wants this summer to be all about boy adventures—nothing serious. But how much fun is too much?
Rosanna leaves Chicago for NYC so she can put her past behind her and reinvent herself. The only thing standing in her way is the grand total of seventy-three cents she has saved. Then she meets a guy who wants to show her the glamorous side of New York—a side that she would never get to experience on her own. If Rosanna doesn’t resist, she may find herself in city love.
Told from alternating points of view, City Love captures the moments in each girl’s life when everything is thrilling, amazing, and terrifying all at once . . . in a way it will never be again.
When I heard about this book I was pretty excited to read it. This book screamed Summer to me so I waited until now to read it. Unfortunately this book disappointed me a little bit. The main characters seemed to childish in some of the situations and I just couldn’t stand Sadie most of the times. Actually Sadie was the character that I liked less in this book. I didn’t have a lot of problems with Rosanna and Darcy but I just didn’t connect with any of these characters. I would like that the author would focus a little bit more in the main characters friendship instead of their love life. And that ending. I didn’t even know that I was in the end of the book because it was so unexpected. And I didn’t even knew that this book was a part of a series. However that ending is going to make me read the next book and maybe the characters will become more relatable. Something I loved about this book was the New York descriptions. This book is not only about the love in the girl’s life but also about the love that they feel for New York and, most importantly, the love that the author feels for the city. After reading this book I just want to visit New York even more that I wanted before.
Overall, this was a cute contemporary romance but I just didn’t connect with the characters. If I were you I would probably give it a try especially if you like these type of books.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it?
