Jessie Hearts NYC by Keris Stainton

From Goodreads: Jessie's just arrived in New York, hoping to forget about her awful ex.

New Yorker Finn is in love with his best friend's girlfriend.

They might be perfect together, but in a city of eight million people, will they ever find each other?

This is such a sweet and fun book. I was really looking forward to reading it as I loved Della Says: OMG! It's a really quick book to read - I read it in a couple of hours - and I honestly wanted to jump on a plane and go to New York after reading it!

The story is told from both Jessie and Finn's perspective  - and as I've said in previous reviews I love books that do this. I love getting the story from both points of view.

I really liked Jessie and her friend Emma. I thought they had a really nice friendship. I also really liked the storyline between Jessie and her mum - and part of me would like to have explored that aspect further. I LOVED Finn. He's just so ... yum! And I adored the whole 'will they won't they' meet each other because you can tell how suited they are for each other - they just need to properly meet!

As I said,  I would have liked to have had a bit more back story for Jessie in regard to her relationship with her mother. And it would have been nice to have a bit more back story on Finn too. I just found myself wanting to know more about them both - but,  at the same time, I also worry that doing so might have spoilt that feel good, light hearted read we got.  That it might have taken the focus away from that 'will they won't they' that I loved so much.

Did I mention it's also really funny -  I loved the revolving restaurant scene!  I also really enjoyed all the movie references.  And I loved the ending *sighs*.
