Goodreads: Sadie, Darcy, and Rosanna are living together in New York City the summer before their freshman year of college begins. With no parents, no rules, and an entire city to explore, these three girls are on the verge of the best summer of their lives.
Sadie is a native New Yorker. She is hopeful, romantic, and an eternal optimist who is ready to find her soul mate. Then she meets her dream boy: cute, funny, and quirky in all the right ways. The chemistry between them is unreal. Could he be the one?
Darcy is a free spirit from SoCal with rebellious tendencies and unlimited financial resources. Moving to New York City is just another adventure for her. Darcy wants this summer to be all about boy adventures—nothing serious. But how much fun is too much?
Rosanna leaves Chicago for NYC so she can put her past behind her and reinvent herself. The only thing standing in her way is the grand total of seventy-three cents she has saved. Then she meets a guy who wants to show her the glamorous side of New York—a side that she would never get to experience on her own. If Rosanna doesn’t resist, she may find herself in city love.
Told from alternating points of view, City Love captures the moments in each girl’s life when everything is thrilling, amazing, and terrifying all at once . . . in a way it will never be again.
Ope’s Opinion: This is the first book in Susane Colasnti’s series. You meet three girls Sadie, Darcy and Rosanna. You will be able to identify with one of the girls or a part of each one.
Susane Colasanti brings NYC alive through these girls eyes. They explore the city and love. They support each other through the ups and downs – they show a great example of friendship.
The ending was very open, since this the beginning of the series. It will be fun to watch these girls grow and change in the next book to come.
Rating: 3.5 – I like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
