Publisher's Summary

From Manuka to Manhattan, Lauren’s going all the way! 

Lauren is a curator at the National Aboriginal Gallery in Canberra. She's good at her job, passionate about the arts and focused on her work - that is, when she's not focusing on Adam. 

But Adam is a player, on and off the field. Lauren knows he's the one, but he doesn't seem to feel the same way about her. If she just waits long enough, though, surely he'll realise how much he needs her? 

Then her boss offers her the chance of a lifetime - a fellowship at the Smithsonian in New York. Lauren has to make some big decisions: the Man or Manhattan?

Another Good Aussie Author

I liked this one but I felt it kinda finished too quickly. I wanted to know more. Worth a listen though it frustrates me how whiney she is over Adam

Saccharine

Enjoyed the glimpses of indigenous and art references, the sustained love sick idiocy, sugary food obsession and neurosis not so much.

If you love a strong female lead... she's not here

Boring, predictable, slow, largely uninteresting. Could have been so much more interesting without the internalized misogyny and fixation on a man who clearly didn't want her. Lauren is annoyingly insecure and neurotic. If you like strong, independent women... this is not the book for you. Glad it was free.
