New York Nights is the second standalone book in CJ Duggan's HEART OF THE CITY series - a very sassy, super sexy New Adult romance from the internationally bestselling author of the SUMMER and PARADISE series.

Sarah Williams is a spirited, independent Aussie who has always dreamed of living in New York City. So when a job opportunity arises to become an au pair for a successful businessman in the heart of Manhattan, Sarah jumps at the chance, ready to embrace the Big Apple in all its brilliant well-lit glory.

What she doesn’t bet on is Grace, the beautiful newborn she’ll be looking after, and Grace’s distant, abrasive father whose eyes hold a million anguished secrets. Determined to care for Grace and face the challenges of the impossible Ben Worthington, Sarah was always prepared to follow her heart; she just wasn't prepared to lose it to a complicated man like Ben.


4 Star

New York Nights, is the second book in the Heart of the City series, but can easily be read as a standalone. 

Sarah Williams is hired as Ben Worthington's Aupair.  This is a sweet romance with a plethora of secrets, betrayal, and mystery that surround the Worthington family.  Ben is a rich, sexy, brooding, moody, closed off, impersonal and controlled individual, although a very confident businessman.  When he finally opens up he's quite an endearing character. Ben is the father of the gorgeous infant Grace, who steals the show, and your heart. 

Sarah is a hard working, caring and like-able individual.  A young Australian women, she comes from a working class family, and comes from a completely different social class to the Worthington family.  She has to jump through quite a few hoops, in order to gain a job. 

The sexual chemistry sparks off this pair right from the very beginning, but it is a slow burn romance. Their banter has humor and sarcasm and warmth. 

Overall an entertaining and engaging read and I look forward to the final title in this series.
