    This is the fifth book in the Manhattan Men Series and is a great addition. You'll enjoy Willow and Gerrit's story. No shortage of drama or angst in their love-hate relationship.

It's hard to put down once you start reading. The characters are well developed and likable. A good read that I enjoyed and as usual Jacob Parker doesn't disappoint. I read a free advance copy via the author and voluntarily chose to review it.

    I love a book I can read in a day! This was so sweet! And even the misunderstanding wasn’t as sad as I expected it to be… (is my heart turning to ice?) Garrit and Willow were so damaged at the beginning that they kept getting into their own damned way. But thankfully with some good friends and well meaning family they were able to fight their way back to each other. This book was the perfect thing to usher in my summer reads!

    This is book five in The Manhattan Men Series and it is Gerrit and Willow's story and omg it is definitely a must read. Gerrit works at the family company and deals with all the tech side of the business and when a proposal comes in for a yoga studio he thinks that it is a prank or a joke and it wasn't until Wit who is not only his family but also his boss acknowledged that he is serious but Gerrit is struggling to think that anyone would want to do yoga on line but it wasn't until he read about This is book five in The Manhattan Men Series and it is Gerrit and Willow's story and omg it is definitely a must read. Gerrit works at the family company and deals with all the tech side of the business and when a proposal comes in for a yoga studio he thinks that it is a prank or a joke and it wasn't until Wit who is not only his family but also his boss acknowledged that he is serious but Gerrit is struggling to think that anyone would want to do yoga on line but it wasn't until he read about it and after seeing a picture of the owner Willow that he decided not only to take the project but also wanted to get to know her. Willow loved her job as a yoga instructor and loved sharing it with others and she wanted to expand so needed help with her online presence and that is where the Manhattan company came in and she is waiting to hear from them. When Gerrit and Willow bump in to each other literally and the spilt coffee on Willow he was so embarrassed that he recognised her that he rushed to his car without apologising hoping that when they meet again to go over the proposal she doesn't recognise him. The more time that they spend together the stronger the attraction and chemistry grows between them but they both have baggage and trust issue's and have been burnt and hurt before so they are taking it slow until something happens putting there relationship in trouble but will they be able to come back from it and trust each other. Wow this series just keeps getting better and better with each book. I couldn't put this book down and it was so emotional in places that it had me in tears and I had to keep turning the pages to see if they got the happy ending that they both deserved and I can't wait to read more book's by Jacob Parker who is an amazing author and writer and his book's are definitely worth reading. I Voluntarily Reviewed a Copy of This Book.

    Gerrit Manhattan is the last of his brothers to fall in love and find his HEA. He's been burned in the past and cheated on which broke his heart, so he's been guarding it carefully ever since.

But the day he bumps into a beautiful woman and soaks her clothes in her matcha and simultaneously covers himself in his coffee, he should have realised that instead of running from her that he should have begged for her forgiveness as his fate was sealed. Willow is his new client that he should make a good impression with. When they officially meet, he uses all the Manhattan charm on her and she readily forgives him. This is the seventh book in the series by the best selling author, Jacob Parker and can be read as a standalone or as a part of the series. As I've been lucky enough to read the whole series now, I would say that reading it as a part of the series is so much better. For example, if you haven't read the other books you'll not know who Abbey nor Nash are which is a shame as Nash is a sweetheart! I enjoyed 'meeting' Willow and Gerrit as they are so well suited. They've both been hurt before but have so much love to give. Their passion is off the charts and you'll need to set your air con to MAX COOL. I confess that I didn't like Jeff at all and wish Willow had set him straight earlier. Lovely ending. I received a reader's copy of this book and voluntarily leave my honest opinion of it here. MOST DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED. [Are their cousin's stories going to be shared with us next??]

At first he thinks it is a joke from his cousin. A yoga studio, hell no. But when Gerrit finds out it is not a joke and starts his research, well things may just be looking up for him. He sees Willow's picture and all bets are off. But his first encounter with Willow is let's say far from stellar. He actually ran into her, spilling her drink on both of them, and he just takes off. UGH...not Gerrit's best first impression. Maybe she won't remember him. Not a chance, when Willow goes to the office for the first time and sees who will be working on her account...well well well, isn't it Mr. Hit and Run. Will these two be able to work together? Will their very strong physical attraction cause issues? There is only one way to find out. You will have to read this great book. Ciao

    Oof! Roller-coaster. Whiplash. Yo-yo. All of those are excellent descriptions of my emotional state while reading this book. Like his brothers, Gerrit is a closet romantic, and his idea of a special surprise is pretty spectacular. Unfortunately, Willow doesn’t have a good track record with surprises. When things are good between Gerrit and Willow, they’re fantastic, and I was on Cloud Nine. But when things go bad, it’s awful. I’ll admit it, I despaired that these two would ever get their issues Oof! Roller-coaster. Whiplash. Yo-yo. All of those are excellent descriptions of my emotional state while reading this book.

When things are good between Gerrit and Willow, they’re fantastic, and I was on Cloud Nine. But when things go bad, it’s awful. I’ll admit it, I despaired that these two would ever get their issues straightened out. I doubted. I feared that Gerrit and Willow had blasted such a hole in their foundation that they would never be on solid footing with one another again. I yelled at my reader. I threatened to teach it how to fly. Then the author gave me my heart’s desire, and I felt foolish. I finished this book with a silly, sappy grin on my face and the hope in my heart that since there are still single Manhattans out there, the series is nowhere near done yet. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

Did I mention that Gerrit moves quick in this relationship and surprises Willow with a marriage proposal. The Manhattan men are falling like dominos! Another great read from Jacob Parker!

Blurred lines, a secret surprise and past betrayals just might drive them apart instead of bringing them closer. Can they move forward to find the trust to love or go their separate ways?? A great addition to the Manhattan Men series!!! Awesome characters with his/her POV, no cliffhanger, no cheating and a HEA. Enjoy the rollercoaster ride with Gerrit and Willow. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. Looking forward to the next Manhattan story.

    Misunderstandings and assumptions not a good combination Geritt and Willow had a lot of trust issues. I don't want to call it baggage because it was a lot more than that. Both had been burned in relationships and even though the fell head over heels for each other Willow's demons surfaced pretty darn quick. Her insecurities took over. Gerrit worked his butt off to surprise the love of his life with something that would help take her business and dream to the next level.

Gerrit worked his butt off to surprise the love of his life with something that would help take her business and dream to the next level. He never got the chance to tell her. When Willow found out about the little extra app, she literally went off the deep end and accused Gerrit of some pretty awful things. Gerrit tried to explain but she wouldn't even listen. When Willow found the envelope he left she realized the horrible hurtful mistake she made. Yes I'm glad she had to eat crow. The one thing I loved about all these stories was the guy's dad Britt. He always intervened with his words of wisdom. So do we get to see the cousins stories now.

This storyline of two people who have had disastrous and painful ex-lovers has neither one looking for love. But love has a way of creeping in where you least expect it or does it? Will they be able to overcome a betrayal? Great character development, entertaining storyline, highly recommended. Jacob Parker has great success with his Manhattan Men including his now Book #5.

I can’t wait to see what else Jacob comes up with next!

    I love the way Jacob Parker tells a story. It jumps right at you and then I don’t want to put it down. As one of the last Manhattan men to be single, the story between Gerrit and Willow doesn’t disappoint. Their match up may have a rocky start but their connection is felt right from the beginning. I love how women are portrayed as strong, independent individuals who are successful. I love how their are men who caring, thoughtful and have manners. It’s what a true romance is made of.

    OMG this was a good book. I loved how Willow and Gerritt originally met, and how he bolted, but then decided that he would help her with her yoga website. Both had been burned in previous relationships so had some trust issues. When they were hot they were scorthing, but when miscommunication happens, their trust issues definitely come to the forfront.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Falling fast and hard. Gerrit and Willow are wonderful characters. They compliment one another beautifully. They have gone through the same thing in their past relationships. It’s hard for them to trust, and also to break down the walls they have around them. It’s sweet, it’s romantic, it’s steamy, it’s funny until they hit a snag of non-trust and such a big mis-communication between them. I could not get enough of these two. I love the way Jacob Parker writes love stories. I am so looking forwar Falling fast and hard. Gerrit and Willow are wonderful characters. They compliment one another beautifully.

    Gerrit, a Manhattan man that works in the family tech firm, initially though that designing a website for Willow, owner of a yoga studio, was a joke, until his boss came in asking for his thoughts on the proposal. As the story progresses the first meeting doesn’t bode well, with the second only time will tell, and they can only move forward if the past is not where they dwell. Jacob Parker sent positive vibes into the universe with Mr. Stiff Suit. This series blows me away with every book.

Their chemistry is off the charts and Jacob did an amazing job keeping us guessing. Love the Manhattan Men series. This was a must read

    Gerritt & Willow are perfect for each other from the start! As the last of the Manhattan men to get hitched, this one is a bomb! Gerritt is sweet, romantic but has trust issues. Willow is the same but she is more easy going than he is. However, these trust issues will take you on a wild ride of highs and lows, But Jacob Parker delivers this amazingly sweet, sexy love story that will take your breath away. I volunteered to review this story.

    Sit back and enjoy this enjoyable rollercoaster ride featuring Gerritt and Willow, it's fast-paced, has great character development, witty dialogue as well as great chemistry. The stories about this Manhattan family keep getting better, I just loved this one! Initially, all she wanted was for his company to help her build a website but he didn't want to until he met her and then he just knew he'd do anything to make her happy.

    This is the fifth book in The Manhattan Men series. I love this series! Willow and Gerrit's story is sweet, funny, and sexy. Willow is lovely, smart, and independent. Gerrit is very handsome, supportive, and caring. They share an instant attraction and a sizzling chemistry. A misunderstanding/miscommunication between them added a little twist to the story. The supporting characters are great. The ending is beautiful! I liked this sweet romance. This is the fifth book in The Manhattan Men series. I love this series!

    Great! The last Manhattan son finds his true love! It is a cute, entertaining story with lots of great characters and good dialogue. Territory’s and Willow have both been devastated emotionally by people they loved and trusted. Both are very wary of any relationships. They have instant attraction but a misunderstanding rips them apart. Both are too quick at making poor choices in words and actions but separation is worse than together was for them both.
