It seems mayor’s daughter Miranda Kravitz has scored herself a new and very dreamy bodyguard! Apparently the fireworks between them are scorching, but will this tabloid darling really be willing to give up her newfound taste for freedom-no matter how gorgeous Tyler Brannigan is?
Rumor has it Brannigan hates playing by the rules and has used up all his strikes with the NYPD vice squad. So now this cop’s paying his dues with a temporary assignment as babysitter. If anyone can keep this Manhattan princess in check, surely it’s this tough-guy detective? Hopefully handcuffs won’t be necessary!
Not finishing a book I’ve started reading is like leaving one biscuit at the bottom of the tin. It’s just not something I usually do.
However, it has just happened to me with Her Man in Manhattan. Having read some of Trish Wylie’s previous work, and enjoyed them, I had high hopes for this one. Unfortunately, it just didn’t deliver on any level for me.
The hero, Tyler, was a piece of work. He was grumpy and not very nice at all to the heroine, Miranda. I can’t really imagine an employee of the city (NYPD) being allowed to speak that way to the daughter of the Mayor. He seemed to think he was badass, but really he was just an ass.
Miranda…I just didn’t connect with her at all. She seemed OK, but she gave off the “poor me, why me” vibe, which grates on me a little.
I didn’t sense the chemistry between the two, and I think if I had kept reading, this wouldn’t have changed.
My rating: DNF
