Product Description

You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?

Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.

In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.

The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
The namedropper.
The cheapskate.

If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.

But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.

OMG, Carrie Aarons has jokes! REALLY funny ones! This book had me laughing out loud so many times! I'm talking genuine throw your head back, get an ab workout kind of laughing. I seriously could see myself being best friends with Gemma. The girl is bold and brash and isn't afraid to have real conversations about sex with her friends, or with Oliver. Those were probably my favorite parts of the book. What I loved most about Oliver is that he isn't your stereotypical sexy book boyfriend. Yes, he's a sexy, millionaire, but in a nerdy down to earth kind of way. He's also a bit of a commitment phobic, but not in a cliché kind of way, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching him squirm a little while he figured his issues out.
Overall it has a Sex In the City meets Friends With Benefits kind of vibe. I could totally see this book being a movie because it really played out like one in my head. The humor wasn't ridiculous or over the top, but a funny because it's true kind of humor. Like the things people really think, but are almost always afraid to say. Underneath all the humor I really loved that Gemma and Oliver were two down to earth people with flaws. It was full of witty back and forth banter, yet it was also an honest portrayal of how sex and relationships are for the average person and how they require work and effort from both people. The story transitioned from funny, to sexy, to tense and ended with swoony feels with a reminder that a happily ever after takes work too.
I loved Oliver and Gemma so much, I'm going to stand up and cheer "Encore" because I'd love to see more of them!

I believe that ALL THE FROGS IN MANHATTAN was a brilliant introduction to Carrie Aarons writing. For those of you, like me, who haven't read anything from this author before, READ THIS BOOK!! It was charming, funny, romantic, had enough drama to keep one's interest, and had a realistic vibe throughout the story.

Going into this I thought I knew what to expect. I've read tons of stories about friends-with-benefits and they all seem to follow a certain type of formula, with little variation. So you can imagine my surprise when this one took a turn that I didn't expect but definitely appreciated. What happens when the friends-with-benefits trope ends before the actual ending? Isn't it suppose to graduate into an automatic HEA?! That's when I knew that this author wasn't playing around by injecting reality into the fiction.

There were many things to like but the one's that stand out are:
♛ Oliver's upfront and straight-forward talk and attitude.
♛ The openness of the banter between Oliver and Gemma.
♛ The awkwardness of the first time these two had sex. It was hilarious and so stupidly real. Most books speak of the instant connection between its main characters and the first time they are intimate is fluid and there are no mishaps. Nope, not for these two and it made them that much more endearing and real to me.
♛ The picture the author painted of the single life in NYC, especially for women. It wasn't incredibly realistic but it was certainly desperate. Especially when Gemma was divesting herself of the slim pickings characterized in this story. Her dates were too funny!!

Overall, I have to say that this book was a joy to read. My only disappointment lies in the fact that I wanted more time to enjoy this couple as a couple.

This is one of the funniest, sweetest books I’ve read in a long time. It’s by far my favorite book by Carrie Aarons. The writing was great; the storyline was fun, flirty and addictive. I didn’t want to put my Kindle down. I was hooked from page one and was left smiling.

Oliver and Gemma’s story is just awesome. I loved the banter, the witty comments from both, the flirty moments and the hilarious dates Gemma went on. I could see this being made into a movie and I’d definitely pay to see it.

It was a little predictable and the epilogue was a little flat but it didn’t take away from the story. I can’t wait to see what Carrie has for us next.

“That’s because love and relationships aren’t a fairytale. They don’t go completely written to plan, like we see in the movies or read in books. They’re messy.” And that right there is what people need to remember. Relationships and life is messy, embrace the mess!

All the Frogs in Manhattan by Carrie Aarons

3.5 Stars

Gemma and Oliver are quite the duo. A nerdy-sexy millionaire tech genius and a beautiful go-getter manhattanite really did make for an interesting read. They're not your typical fairy tail combo, and they sure worked hard to prove that point.

I was actually consumed by this book. The writing was great-it flowed wonderfully and it really captured and held my attention.

Commitment-something Oliver is NOT familiar with. At 30, his job creating technical masterpieces was pretty much all he had time for. A fling here and there and a romp now and again satisfied his basic carnal needs but a girlfriend? HELL NO.

Looking for her prince in a sea of frogs in New York was proving difficult. At 25, Gemma just wanted to settle down and move forward with her life. She's got the dream job working as an editor for a popular woman's magazine, and endless amounts of one night stands...but she needed something more.

I loved the initial meet-cute between Oliver and Gemma. Though it was too quick, it was quite funny. This made for their second connection to allow for some humility and some sexy time, which was too quick as well, but made sense later into the read. I did notice some continuity issues, but apart from that I laughed! A lot! There were some parts that felt a little too rushed and some that left me feeling a little flat but all in all I really enjoyed this read. It's a first for me from Aarons and I'm tempted to give her another go! Second chance romances are hard to write-they're hard to keep original as well. The chemistry was there though, and it helped move the story along!

Ps. I think they'd make cute babies.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is what happens when Facebook meets Sex in the City. March 4 2017
By Jen Zingaro (Dirty Bad Bloggers) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was so much fun. It's like a sexy version of Mark Zuckerberg meets Carrie from Sex in the City. Gemma lives as a writer for a fashion magazine in NYC. She has her girlfriends. She lives comfortably, but she is missing male companionship. She goes on dates that are unsuccessful. She happens to fall into Oliver (a successful tech genius) a couple of times and they decide to be friends with benefits. This book has everything that I love. It has glorious banter. I love the open, honest dialogue between these two. They are more realistic than some characters you come across in a romance novel. Oliver is not the perfect man, but for me, that was part of his charm. It has hot chemistry and angst for days! This book made me feel like I was living the story and that is the best compliment to the author. Books that have me reading from start to finish are the best!

4.0 out of 5 stars :: 4 Pretty Little Stars :: March 7 2017
By Pretty Little Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
All the Frogs in Manhattan is a humorous tale about a woman who is searching for her prince charming in a sea of frogs. With added sass and a lot of spice, Carrie Aaron's turns a mundane tale into a total winner with this one. Even more, she sucks her readers into a tale that could easily be a readers life. Why? Because if you really think about it, how many frogs have you kissed before you met your prince and reached your HEA? Probably quite a few. Life and love are not perfect and we can't always find our match right away, but if we are patient and go with the flow it will eventually fall in our laps (or maybe even be right in front of our faces and we never even noticed). This my friends, is how the story plays out for sassy Gemma, and I loved every minute of it.

As with many romances, the plots of various books all seem to swarm together, making them not only forgettable, but a bit boring while reading. There have been quite a few romance novels that I have simply put to the side because of this (I mean, who doesn't get tired of the same thing over and over again). But this book had a very unique quality to it that I loved and made it stand out from the others. Perhaps it's the fact that the book is like a modern day fairy-tale, or that the characters hold different personalities than other characters in different books. Either way, I found this book to be unique and very fun. It's also a lighthearted read, light on the drama, and filled with some very steamy scenes that will make seasoned romance readers blush!

Readers who like fairy-tales with a modern edge, and those who enjoy books that are filled with laugh out loud moments and crappy dates will enjoy this one. I personally picked up this book based on the cover (it deserves some cover love because, really, how cute is it) and couldn't stop until I finished the story. So even if it's just the cover that catches your eye, give a new book a chance. It's worth the read!

PS: The "hero" or "prince charming" of the novel is a nerdy tech guy/billionaire and is sure to make his way into your heart. He's what we women would call a "keeper"

5.0 out of 5 stars " you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you will meet your prince". March 5 2017
By shellbelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I was younger and single, I can remember the difficulties in the world of dating. It was beyond frustrating. I always found something wrong with most potential prince charmings. My mother always said " you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you will meet your prince". So I muddled along, kissed a bunch of toads, finally found my imperfect prince charming and am living our version of happily ever after.

Carrie Aarons delivered a delightful story that illustrates exactly how difficult the world of dating can be. From the mama's boys to the manwhores. Add the dating apps to the mix and the dating world becomes even more disastrous. Sometimes the characters are so lost within all the muck, they fail to recognize a good thing when it's right in front of their faces. When the switch finally turns on, the romance is pure and delightfully imperfect. In the end love is the only thing that matters. There is no guideline or directions. It's about learning to compromise and give more of oneself.

I absolutely loved this book! I highly recommend All The Frogs In Manhattan by Carrie Aarons.
4.0 out of 5 stars 🐸 A witty and fun read! 🐸 March 5 2017
By AATB - Syl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I fell in love with the cover and blurb, and I thought I'd give it a chance since All the Frogs in Manhattan is the first book I have read from this author. I loved this book from the first page to the last. The storyline was unique and had me smiling throughout.

At 25, Gemma has the job that she's always wanted and the only thing missing in her life is the perfect man. She knows what she wants in a man and is determined to find him. She goes on numerous dates but things aren't looking good for her in finding him. While on a date, she literally falls into Oliver's arms. Oliver is a geeky 30 year tech millionaire who wants the opposite of what Gemma is looking for. But everyone knows that we don't always get what we're looking for!

I loved that this book was such a light, witty, fun read. The banter between Gemma and Oliver had me laughing throughout. The only problem I had with the book was that I felt like the epilogue didn't give us much. I felt like I needed a little more. Overall, this was an amazing read and I look forward reading more from this author.

Oliver, the H, was great. He was snarky in the best way. His commitment phobia made him slightly stand-offish. I felt like maybe he was too mature for the younger h.
Gemma was most times overly snarky and crass. It really showed her younger age and immaturity.
I had a bit of an issue with her need to find a man, she was only 25! She was very sexually free, which is not uncommon, but she came across obsessed with it sometimes.
I didn't really feel the connection between Oliver and Gemma. Even at the end of lacked that warm fuzzy lovey dovey feeling.
