Publisher's Summary

California landscape artist Estelle Donovan hates big cities. Between the grime, the smell, all the drab concrete, and the suffocating summer heat, how can anyone breathe? Housesitting her brother's New York apartment, complete with broken elevator and smoking air conditioner, is her kind of hell. It's only for two weeks, though. What could possibly go wrong?

Dumping a jar of pickles on the hot girl at the grocery store wasn't Crosby Chase's finest hour, nor was getting bitten in the butt by the demonic cat on her fire escape. But he is going to change her mind about his beloved city, damn it. In fact, if they could just make it five minutes without falling into bed, he bets Estelle he can find five things she'll love about New York.

Falling in love wasn't part of his plan. And with an entire country between them, Crosby realizes he doesn't need five reasons to make Estelle love New York.

He needs one big reason to make her stay....

Each book in the Chase Brothers series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Sweet, Short, and Sassy

This short novel is the 1st installment in a series about the four Chase brothers. Each book is a stand-alone novel, but I'm planning to listen to them in order.

Estelle and Crosby (the oldest Chase brother) meet shortly after Estelle arrives in NYC to house-sit her brother's apartment for two weeks. Sparks fly immediately and the two are drawn together in a sweet, funny romance. But they live on opposite sides of the country.... so what will happen after the two weeks are over?

This is a quick, enjoyable listen. My only criticism is with the narrator, Maxine Mitchell. She has a very odd way of flattening out the end of her sentences. I don't know if there's a term for it, but it's like vocal fry without the gravel. Sadly it detracts from the story.

Great Rom Com

This was a fun book to listen to. It kept me laughing throughout the story. I liked the characters and I liked the plot. I would definitely listen or read another book by this author. It was quite an entertaining book. The narrator did a decent job reading the story. She was able to voice each character differently.

Welcome to New York!!


An absolutely adorable sweet romance. Estelle came to New York just knowing she would hate it. In a short time she found 2 things. A wonderfully kind and funny man and how very wrong she was to have hated one of the most amazing cities in earth!! It was a quick fun listen. Enjoy!!
