Title: All the Frogs in Manhattan
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2017
You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?
Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.
In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.
The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.

Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book. She loves spinning tales that include dapper men, women with attitude, and the occasional hunky athlete.
When she isn't in what her husband calls a "writing coma", Carrie is freeing up her jam-packed DVR, starting her latest DIY project, or planning her next travel adventure. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, who is more than happy to watch sports while his wife plots love stories.
I'm sure Carrie Aarons felt out of her comfort zone writing "All the Frogs in Manhattan" but she hit the mark! This was a perfectly hilarious RomCom! Loved it! Carrie is so witty and the banter between her characters is so freaking entertaining!
I think what I might love about this author the most is that she doesn't constrain herself to just one genre. You just never know what she's going to come out with next! While all of her books have had romance elements that is the only way they are similar. I love that! I love knowing that I can look through her books and find a variety. This RomCom is one that I'm going to be coming back to again and again!
I loved every single thing about Oliver and Gemma! I mean, Gemma was a bit desperate and I wanted to throttle her neediness. I think I might be biased because I've never had a real problem finding good dates. My online dating ended with my husband. However, I know so many people are like Gemma though. They want that connection, need it to feel complete and that was exactly how I saw Gemma.
I thought Oliver was just a fun-tastic guy! He was upfront and honest from the get-go. I liked how real this book felt… life isn't always smooth talking alphas! We get just fantastic banter between Gemma and Oliver. A hilarious first sexual encounter. I just loved how real (I need the thesaurus for that word) this was… there was no perfect sexual dance where the angels sang. That just made them so much more endearing for me! I like the flawed people! And Oh my word… Gemma’s dates! Lol no one should have to deal with those frogs!
I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I will leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
