Title: All the Frogs in Manhattan
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2017
You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?
Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.
In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.
The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.

One of the things I love about Carrie Aaron's writing is that it always sucks me in. The characters intrigue me and grab my attention and the plot always has a different feel to it than similar reads.
I enjoyed this book because though it had a few common themes and expected things - there was a touch of a different spin on it, making me enjoy the ride. The banter and interactions between Gemma and Oliver just made the story.
This book gave truth to the old adage - Love comes unexpectedly for some. Gemma and Oliver were two people not many would imagine being perfect for each other, but somehow they just worked. I enjoyed that their journey wasn't typical, that the story had drama, humor, interesting characters and a story that hooked me from page one and kept me curious for more.
All the Frogs in Manhattan was a light read that had a bit of everything and took me on an interesting journey. Labeled as a romantic comedy this book has its touches of humor, but there's so much more to their relationship.
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book. She loves spinning tales that include dapper men, women with attitude, and the occasional hunky athlete.
When she isn't in what her husband calls a "writing coma", Carrie is freeing up her jam-packed DVR, starting her latest DIY project, or planning her next travel adventure. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, who is more than happy to watch sports while his wife plots love stories.
