RITA finalist and New York Times bestselling author Ruthie Knox kicks off a steamy new series set in the city that never sleeps—alone, at least.

May Fredericks hates New York. Which is fair enough, since New York seems to hate her back. After relocating to Manhattan from the Midwest to be with her long-distance boyfriend, NFL quarterback Thor Einarsson, May receives the world’s worst marriage proposal, stabs the jerk with a shrimp fork, and storms off alone—only to get mugged. Now she’s got no phone, no cash, and no friends. How’s a nice girl supposed to get back to safe, sensible Wisconsin?

Frankly, Ben Hausman couldn’t care less. Sure, it’s not every day he meets a genuine, down-to-earth woman like May—especially in a dive in the Village—but he’s recovering from an ugly divorce that cost him his restaurant. He wants to be left alone to start over and become a better man. Then again, playing the white knight to May’s sexy damsel in distress would be an excellent place to start—if only he can give her one very good reason to love New York.

Brimming with New York charm...TRULY is unputdownable!

As a huge fan of Ruthie Knox's writing style (ABOUT THAT NIGHT and RIDE WITH ME), I knew I would be sucked into the story of May, the Wisconsin Transplant, and Ben, the grumpy New Yorker (and as someone from NY originally, I can agree that we are grumpy, or at least we find it strange when people who we don't know wave at us...something I had to get used to when I moved to North Carolina...People wave just to be nice....HUH?)

And sucked in I was!  May is absolutely hysterical!  From someone who hates to 'Rock the Boat' and cause any confrontation, I can see myself in May so much, and yes, we do get angry and when it happens, WATCH OUT (Dan and the Shrimp fork can vouch for that).  I loved that she finally finds herself, and I mean the self that she has been battling down for years at others expenses, and Ben is the one who draws that out of her.  The always say when you find the one, you can be comfortable enough to be the Real You, and I think that is what May and Ben do for each other.

Ben....ah Ben, not your typical white knight, but he was spectacular.  Grumpy is his MO, and he lives off the anger, but with May, he too could be the true him, and even look forward to being the "Best" of himself for Meg....I liked that he wasn't perfect and everything wasn't just wrapped in a big ole red bow.

Ruthie Knox writes a Fairy Tale, but with a Princess that could definitely fight the dragon herself, and a Prince who can cook like...ohh....I want a piece of that french toast he was making...and a setting that takes you away to the noisy streets of NYC, and makes you feel alive!

New York Times bestselling author Ruthie Knox writes contemporary romance that’s sexy, witty, and angsty—sometimes all three at once. Her debut novel, Ride with Me, is probably the only existing cross-country bicycling love story. She followed it up with About Last Night, a London-based romance whose hero has the unlikely name of Neville, and then Room at the Inn, a Christmas novella—both of which were finalists for the Romance Writers of America’s RITA Award.

Her four-book series about the Clark family of Camelot, Ohio, has won accolades for its fresh, funny portrayal of small-town Midwestern life. Ruthie also writes New Adult romance as Robin York. She moonlights as a mother, Tweets incessantly, and bakes a mean focaccia. She’d love to hear from you, so visit her website and drop her a line.
