There are some authors that you know you're going to enjoy the book. LL is one of those for me. However, even with that said, I was not prepared to be as blown away by Passion on Park Avenue as I was.
Strong, sassy, successful, self-made CEO Naomi's life gets thrown a curveball when her boyfriend dies suddenly. However, the real adventure begins when she meets his wife, and other mistress (neither of whom she was aware of) at his funeral. These three women decide to become friends and support each other as they navigate everything life will throw at them. With the support of these new friends, Naomi sets out to "prove her worth" to those who treated her poorly as a child, including the son of the family who ruined her mother's career.
With all the humor, awkward moments and slow burn of the classic RomComs, complete with a couple "What are you doing Naomi?!" moments, this book hooks you in and the next thing you know it's 2am. This book focuses on not only the chemistry between Heroine and Hero, but the friendship between the woman as well, giving you all the sisterhood feels, as well as the romantic ones. LL doesn't shy away from some heavy topics in this one: cheating, revenge, childhood trauma, homelessness, Alzhimers, and more - yet remains witty and clever.
This book has earned a place on shelf next to the Shopaholic series to be read over and over. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to wait for the next installment!
