Hey, everyone! I won’t be able to post a review for this book (as I only received the book yesterday lol), but I’m more than honored to present the release of this new summer rom-com anthology: Summer in the City! I got personally invited to join on this tour by one of the authors, Priscilla Oliveras, after I raved about her book Anchored Hearts.

Each connected novella in this fun, fresh Rom-Com anthology follows a different woman from a group of NYC friends whose plans to escape the summer heat with a fabulous girls-only weekend suddenly lose steam when an unexpected blackout cuts off power to all of Manhattan.

There’s nothing like summer in Manhattan. The days are long and the nights are even longer. But when the lights go out in the city, fireworks explode…
