Four young women's lives intersect in the apartment they've shared in Hell's Kitchen: Claire, a shoe designer; Abby, an aspiring novelist; Morgan, a successful financial consultant; and Sasha, a resident in obstetrics. As different as they are from one another, the women had become a family by choice. But while their lives had proceeded smoothly in the years they'd lived together, new relationships, job opportunities, and surprising circumstances will test the strength of their bond in and outside the loft that had become their home.

I really liked the book but I don’t understand why a man is narrating a story where the main characters are 4 women. I found it really distracting, especially because there’s a lot of dialogue in the book and it’s all read by a man trying to impersonate a woman voice. The narrator is obviously talented but it’s such a female-driven storyline and would have been much more impactful if it was read by a woman.
