This was a fun story. Cici ends up pregnant after a drunken one night stand with someone who wants absolutely nothing to do with her or the baby. Jason Hooper (Hoop) has issues with committment and attachment due to being raised in the foster care system. They had chemistry, but Hoop's fear of committment was pushing Cici away. There was plenty of tension between the two as they worked to figure out if they could be friends, or if a relationship was possible with his fears and her pregnant with another man's child. Both Cici and Hoop were great characters and good people. It was an emotional progression as they figured out their relationship.
I enjoyed reading Summer in Manhattan by Katherine Garbara. After Cici Johnson has a drunken one night stand with Rich Maguire she unexpectedly ends up pregnant. Rich wants nothing, absolutely nothing to do with the baby or with Cici. Although Cici never expected to become a mom, she is determined to raise her baby with all the love she can. Jason Hooper was abandoned after birth and spent his entire life wondering what family means. He was in and out of the foster care system until being adopted by a wonderful family as a teen. Because of his background, he never gets close to anyone in case they walk away. After meeting Cici he feels like he’s finally found his place and his home. He has to figure out if he can accept Cici and the baby while Cici needs to stop running away and believe that Hoop has her back. I enjoyed reading this book. It is really a great story showing the importance of friends and family and believing they have your back.s Ms. Garbera is a wonderful story teller, keeping me interested in this story and I definitely recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Summer in Manhattan by Katherine Garbera is a great romance. Cici and Hoop are both not looking for love but it finds them Cici finds out she is pregnant from a one night stand and tries to not get close to Hoop because the baby is not his. He gets her to accept that he can be in her life even though the baby is not his. They meet a lot because of her best friend Hayley and Garret her husband is Hoops friend. They try to fight their attraction and it was to strong for them. The real father of baby doesn't want anything to do with baby or Cici, but his parents decide that they want the baby and fight Cici for custody. Hoop is a lawyer and fights for Cici rights as a mother. They spend lots of time together over this and fall in love. I really enjoyed this book. It was one of my favorites that I have read in a while. I would recommend to anyone who wants to read a romance. This book is really well written and easy to believe the characters are real.
