in New York with Hollywood’s sexiest heartthrob makes Faith Logan the envy of
women everywhere. This small-town nurse has too many responsibilities,
including caring for her aging parents, to be interested in fame or status. But
as the sensual celebrity escorts her to exclusive Manhattan nightclubs and
glitzy movie premieres, Faith is falling fast for the genuine, charismatic man
behind the slick media image.
Irvin Freeman is surprised and intrigued by Faith’s down-to-earth personality.
One impulsive kiss turns their private flirtation into public news. But
paparazzi and crazed admirers are making her doubt their potential as a couple.
Will the pressures of fame cause their love to fade before he can convince her
they’ve found their own real-life happy ending?
“Is this your first vacation since going home?”
She nodded. “It is. I still can’t believe that I won. I only signed up because my friend insisted and because the proceeds benefitted alcohol awareness. I saw so many patients come into the hospital who were suffering from alcohol abuse. Still, I never expected to win the contest.”
“So the possibility of a date with me had nothing to do with you entering?”
She sipped her champagne and gave him a shy look from the corner of her eye. “I will admit the fantasy of it all did have some appeal.”
He raised his brows and chuckled. “Some appeal. Wow.”
“Oh, come on. What do you want me to say?” she asked with a laugh. “That I stayed up every night praying that I’d be chosen?”
“Not quite that, but surely you were somewhat excited.”
“See, that’s the problem.” She pointed a finger at him, but her brown eyes flashed with humor. “You’re used to women throwing themselves at you. This weekend will be good for you.”
“You need a few days with a woman who isn’t trying to get something out of you. I’m more excited about seeing the city, going to a movie premiere and trying on clothes I wouldn’t be caught dead in back home than in seducing the movie star.”
He placed his arm on the back of her chair, making sure to let his hand brush across her shoulders, and moved closer to her. Her eyes widened and her full lips parted with a quick breath before she looked away and finished the rest of the champagne in her glass. She might talk a big game, but Faith was attracted to him as well.
“That’s the third time you’ve said that. Who are you trying to convince?”
“You. I know what you’re up to, sliding close to me and giving me the sexy voice and eyes routine.”
“You think my voice is sexy?” he asked, lowering his voice an octave.
She shook her head and laughed. “Don’t go all Barry White on me.”
“I’d like to go all Irvin Freeman on you,” he said in his regular voice. Though he tried to keep the tone light, some of his seriousness came through.
Her smile faltered, and he saw by the warming of her eyes and the catch of her breath that she heard it.
“Is that what you do with your leading ladies?”
Her soft, sweet drawl slid in beneath his skin and heated his insides. It had gotten thicker with her question. How thick would it get if he were deep inside her?
“What I do with my leading ladies is acting. I’m not acting right now. What I’m thinking and feeling is all real.”
She shifted in her seat. “I don’t believe you.”
“Then believe this.”
He lowered his head and pressed his lips against hers, with enough firmness to let her know he was serious, but lightly enough for her to pull away if she didn’t want the kiss. Her body shook, and her lips parted with a gasp. He wasn’t a man to pass up an opportunity, and he took the chance to deepen the kiss.
He’d never believed in electricity or sparks igniting when a man kissed a woman, but something he’d never felt before happened as he kissed her. His skin tingled, the blood rushed through his veins, his senses heightened to everything around them. The sweet scent of her perfume, the softness of her lips, the way she tasted of champagne, all seemed amplified. And like a man who’d gotten a taste of something he really liked, he dove in for more.
Have you ever dreamed of winning a weekend with the hottest actor alive? Well Faith didn’t think she would win, she gave a donation to a worthy charity that was having a drawing and the winner would have a weekend with the hottest actor at his movie premier and also be with him as he handed over the check to the charity. I would love to win something like this.
Well when Faith receive the call that she won, she thought it was a joke, she didn’t even remember entering the contest. Well then Faith wasn’t even sure she wanted to go, she just has way too many responsibilities to just take off for a weekend getaway to New York City. But her friends and family talked her into going and she went.
Irvin Freeman the hot actor that Faith won the weekend with was also just wanting to get this over with. He was glad that they had raised money for his charity about alcohol awareness but wasn’t really in the mood to spend the weekend with a fan.
A New York Kind Of Love by Synithia Williams is a fantastic book, This is the first story I have read by Synithia Williams and really love her writing style. I love this story about fate and love. As I was reading this story my emotions are all over the place, I totally wish I could relate to Faith, I mean I can relate except I have never won a weekend with a hot actor. But I felt her emotions from the beginning. The author did a great job of developing the characters and they were easy to fall in love with and that made this story even better. This story was one that of course hooked me from the start. I didn’t want the story to end. The ending was perfect.
I just loved it and love reading these types of stories. I guess because that would be my fantasy to win a weekend with a famous hot actor.
