Frankie Cole built a stone wall around her heart. She wanted nothing to do with having a boyfriend. What kind of man would want to date her, anyway? Not a respectable man, that’s for sure. When her parent’s divorced, Frankie’s mother started changing. Instead of becoming more involved with her daughter, Frankie’s mother took to sleeping with men instead; all kinds of men, young, old, married, single, it didn’t matter. Frankie would hear people whispering around her, and she could just imagine what they were saying. “Like mother, like daughter, keep your man away from her.”
Matt Walker knew in his heart that Frankie was nothing like her mother. They had been friends for years, and Matt was in love with Frankie. Although there was obvious chemistry between them, Frankie didn’t want anything to do with becoming a couple. In Frankie’s mind, relationships and marriages fail; so, why would she want to mess up a beautiful friendship just to have a lover? Could Matt’s love for Frankie be strong enough to change her mind? And, could he handle Frankie’s rejection until he won over her heart?
Sunset in Central Park is a delightful and entertaining tale. I think, however, that the story would have been even more enjoyable if the characters had been fully developed.
I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
