Review: Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan

Miracle on 5th Avenue

3rd book in the From Manhattan With Love Series

It will take a Christmas miracle for two very different souls to find each other in this perfectly festive fairy tale of New York! 
Hopeless romantic Eva Jordan loves everything about Christmas. She might be spending the holidays alone this year, but when she's given an opportunity to house-sit a spectacular penthouse on Fifth Avenue, she leaps at the chance. What better place to celebrate than in snow-kissed Manhattan? What she didn't expect was to find the penthouse still occupied by its gorgeous—and mysterious—owner. 
Bestselling crime writer Lucas Blade is having the nightmare before Christmas. With a deadline and the anniversary of his wife's death looming, he's isolated himself in his penthouse with only his grief for company. He wants no interruptions, no decorations and he certainly doesn't appreciate being distracted by his beautiful, bubbly new housekeeper. But when the blizzard of the century leaves Eva snowbound in his apartment, Lucas starts to open up to the magic she brings…This Christmas, is Lucas finally ready to trust that happily-ever-afters do exist?

My review: 4 Holiday Stars
I think the quote on the book cover is perfect- "A little sweet and a lot sexy." I do adore a slow burn, enemies to lovers story, so this fit the bill nicely. Eva was at times a bit too perfect for me- she's honesty SO perfect! Her only flaw seems to be she speaks before she thinks. I always enjoy a grumpy hero, and Lucas was that word personified. I enjoyed their witty banter immensely. Although this reads as a standalone, I found at times that I wished I knew more about the secondary characters that I knew were featured in the first two books in the series. I also felt that the ending wrapped up a bit too quickly, but was happy with the result.
