Layne, Lauren. Made in Manhattan. Gallery Books, 2022. ISBN 978-1982152833 304 pp. $16.99
In this modern day, gender flipped Pygmalion, Violet takes the challenge to turn her employer’s long lost hicksville grandson into someone who looks, dresses and acts the part of a member of the NYC ton’s corporate elite. Violet never backs down from a challenge, and Cain is deliberating grating, but a quick study. Their mutual attraction has a slow almost begrudging burn.
The superficial socialite has more depth than it would appear, and the Louisiana businessman turns out to have the interest and acumen to take on the posh position of his inheritance. A fast read for fans of Christina Lauren.
I received an advance reader’s review copy of #MadeInManhattan from #NetGalley.
