    One thought on “Meet Me in Manhattan”

    1. Review copy provided by publisherWhen I was given the opportunity to review a Reality-Based Romance™ novel (also know as RB Romance™), I was a bit hesitant at first. The first thought that came to my mind was reality TV, which I do not like. There are only crazy people making complete fools of themselves on reality TV. But once I read the blurb for Meet Me in Manhattan, and found out that it was about a lost love between two people and their journey trying to rekindle that love, I knew I had [...]

    2. I've never read any Judith Arnold, and decided to give one of her recent books a try. But when I got a copy of MEET ME IN MANHATTAN from the library, I discovered that the book was part of a series in which all the stories are based on actual, real-life, contemporary couples. Something about being inside of the head of real life people, when you know they aren't the ones who wrote the book, had a strong "ick" factor for me. Will have to try a different Arnold book to free myself from the bad tas [...]

    3. I've always found Judith Arnold to write sweet and tender romances, and with Meet Me in Manhattan, she has done just that. What makes this book even sweeter is that it's a reality based romance about two teenage sweethearts from New Jersey, who after seeing each other again after fifteen years, still have sparks between them. The question is, will these two be able to get over the heartache and forgive one another so they can be together as they've always wanted to?Erika Fredell is nervous about [...]

    5. Meet Me in Manhattan is part of a new line of reality-based romances from Health Communications, Inc. As a fan of Harlequin and other fictional romances, I was intrigued by the True Vows line and immediately requested a review copy.I thought that Meet Me in Manhattan was really well-written. Arnold's style was smooth and the story she told was compelling. Choosing to start the book with the scene of Ted and Erika's reunion, before circling back to tell of their original relationship was a fantas [...]

    6. I sat down to read this book by Judith Arnold today after putting all my books away from my recent trip to RomCon. Combined between the free books, the books I won and the books I received from a friend I met while in Denver, I basically received a large box full of books that I haven’t read yet. This book was one that was free and I was intrigued because it was titled “reality-based romance.” I went into reading this book not really knowing what to expect, but the first page drew me in so [...]

    7. I liked this book. I think it was a bit slow in the middle, and I would have liked to see more about what Ted did with his life in the 16 years that he and Erika were apart, other than pining over her. There was much more detail about how she spent those 16 years than there was about him, and I have to wonder why. Apart from that, I think it was a well-told story. It was clear from the beginning that these two were meant for each other, but that the timing was wrong the first time around.I think [...]

    8. I had saw this book at CVS and I decided to order it through PBS. After receiving it yesterday I figured I would get back on the book bandwagon and start off with this book. I wish I could say it was a great book, however, it just fell flat to me. Summary: Ted and Erika are high school sweethearts who are totally in love with each other. But after graduation, Erika knows she must follow the path she as always set for herself, which was to go to college and experience new things. Ted on the other [...]

    9. This is the first novel I've read by Judith Arnold. She did an excellent job of taking us through a romance that spanned 16 years. I was totally caught up in Ted and Ericka's relationship in both the past and present. I really enjoyed the journey both characters took, though I have to say Ericka's attitude bothered me at times. Maybe because I sympathized so much with Ted? She was right that they were probably too young to get married, but she seemed almost selfish at times. She didn't consider [...]

    10. So this new line is "based" on real life stories and Meet Me In Manhattan features the story of Ted Skala and Erika Fredell. I wasn't to sure about this being "reality based" and all, but it was a nice story. At times I felt really bad for Ted and got a little teary-eyed, maybe it was because second chance/reunited is one of my most favorite themes in a romance and to have the ticker in my brain say "this really happened" had me more into the story. I know they say reality is real but IMO realit [...]

    11. This novel is a reality based love story about high school sweethearts who find love the second time as mature adults with each other. Great history via flashbacks. I admire the fact that Erika Fredell knew what she wanted and went for it. She wanted to go to college, get a degree, and have a career;whereas, Ted Skala let her go and moved on with his life. This story gives some credence to the old adage, "If you love something, set it free and if it comes back to you, it was meant to be." I admi [...]

    12. Just read the first five chapters for free, and am finding it hard to want to continue. I think part of the charm of the book for me was the fact that it was based on a real relationship. Beyond that, I found the dialogue stilted and the chemistry rather lacklustre. The narrative read like reported speech. It might get better as the story continues but I don't think I'll be rushing out to buy the book. Even after 5 chapters as a hook.

    13. An easy enjoyable romance that is based on a true life event is something different and one I was interested to see how it would go. I was generally surprised and liked the flow of the story and the characters.An pleasure journey, and I good way to pass a few hours.

    14. ys its based on a true story. I enjoyed the flow of the relationship and loved the fact that true Love never dies. :)
