Product Description

Anna Kirby is sick of dating. She's tired of heartbreak. Despite being smart, sexy, and funny, she's a magnet for men who don't deserve her.

A week's vacation in New York is the ultimate distraction from her most recent break-up, as well as a great place to meet a stranger and have some summer fun. But to protect her still-bruised heart, fun comes with rules. There will be no sharing stories, no swapping numbers, and no real names. Just one night of uncomplicated fun.

Super-successful serial seducer Ethan Scott has some rules of his own. He doesn't date, he doesn't stay the night, and he doesn't make any promises.

It should be a match made in heaven. But rules are made to be broken.

The Empire State Series comprises the novellas A Week in New York, Autumn in London and New Year in Manhattan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Simple, Sexy Romance 14 March 2015
By Blissfully Booked - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me preface by saying this the first time I've read anything by this author. I'm glad I came across this book, as it was a good place to start.

The story is told from a dual P.O.V. The conversational style of writing was very entertaining. I laughed often as I did not mind being inside of the character's heads. The internal dialogue was just as amusing as the two character's sexy banter with one another.

The plot is simple -
Two people meet at a night club. Our Hero is a native New Yorker. Our Heroine is from the UK on vacation for one week in The Big Apple. She's going through a dry spell after a breaker-up and he's not interested in the complications of a committed relationship. He's handsome and successful and she's a beautiful professional working her way up the corporate ladder in London Town.
Finding one another attractive - They hook up for a one-night-stand. -VERY PLAUSABLE-

This is no instantly in love scenario. The author allows these two people to develop a relationship. The romance drifts seamlessly from the pages as they do eventually Fall-In-Love.

The conflict -
The distance of 3000 miles. They live on two different continents.
The author didn't use angst and forced stupidity to weave this story into the colorful tapestry that it is (I hate those). There is no underdeveloped over the top irrational story line. The reader will easily enjoy the simplicity. It was refreshing, as there biggest issue was distance.
Read for yourself and find out if these two can work through their self-inflicted, NO BULLSH!! rules, and overcome distance and time zones.
*****Highly Recommend*****

5.0 out of 5 stars 3- 5 star reads!! I'm int love with BOTH Ethan and Anna. This series is perfect!!! 3 March 2015
By Stefanie@Mommy's Late Night Book-up - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A Week in New York (The Empire State Trilogy #1)
✯✯5 New York Styled Stars!!✯✯

I can't believe how much I liked this. I mean I knew I'd like it. But, man did I love both Anna and Ethan. Anna had a bad break-up and went to New York for a vacation with her best friend. She needed to get away and start over. And, wow what a way to start over!

While out with her friend Anna meets Ethan. He oozes sex appeal! She figures there's nothing wrong with having a one-night stand. They head back to his hotel room. Anna comes up with all these rules. Which is perfect for Ethan!! Ethan too has rules. He does not date. He doesn't do sleep overs & he makes no promises. And, he never gives his phone number out. But, one night with Anna and he's breaking all his own rules and then some!!

Now, that Ethan has had a piece of Anna he wants another. Ethan tracked Anna down and it literally gets hotter & hotter. Ethan has always had his rules for his own reasons. Yet, he's willing to throw them away for him. Anna seems to keep reminding him that this thing between them is only for a week. Every time she says it the words seem they cut deeper and deeper into Ethan. I am rooting for Ethan to smack some sense into Anna. To make her realize that the thing between them is real. I can see it.

They literally spend the whole week together. And, all of Ethan's rules are 110% broken times 10. Which was awesome to see. Because, he is the alpha-male. But, Anna is awesome. Who's been hurt. I wish she'd realize Ethan is it. But, she doesn't. Now, their week is over and my kindle almost went up against the wall. The 2nd novella can't come out fast enough.

Autumn in London (The Empire State Trilogy #2)
✯✯5 Second Chance Stars!!✯✯

From the minute I finished A Week in New York I could not wait to get my hands on the second part of Anna & Ethan story. Anna went to New York with her friend after she broke up with her boyfriend. She met Ethan at a bar. What started as a one night stand with no strings attached and no complications.Turned into a week of complications. Ethan who doesn't do relationships and has a strict policy of no sleep overs, no exchanging phone numbers. He wanted to keep Anna as close as possible. They decided to enjoy the week & that was it. When the week was over Ethan wanted to change the rules. But, Anna. Deleted phone numbers out of their phones and left to go home to London.

A few months later both Anna and Ethan are still miserable. Everyday that passes the more miserable they get. Neither of them doing much except throwing themselves into work. Not going out and dating. And, thinking about each other all the time.

Ethan winds up having to go to London for 3 months to head up the merger with another law firm. He';s looking forward to spending time with his sister. While on the plane Anna has invaded his mind. He vows after he gets settled in he will get an hold of her best friends boyfriend and find her.

Anna has to go to an important meeting at work. There's talk about a merger or a takeover. She's not sure. Anna is prepared for anything. Except for when the meeting starts and she's looking right at Ethan. The guy who's invaded her thoughts for months. Anna is instantly pissed!!

Ethan is Ethan and gets the issues resolved with Anna. They make-up, make-up for lost time very quickly. These two sure are hot together!! Wow. Ethan lets it be known right off the bat when they're not at work they will be together. He does something he's never done before. A relationship. Ethan has no idea how it works. But, with Anna it's right.

I absolutely love these 2 together!! They fit so perfectly. Like 2 puzzle pieces made for each other. They have such a good routine. Between working and spending time with Ethan sister & her family and hanging with Anna's friends. Everything is perfect. Except their 3 months are coming to an end. Ethan tries a thousand times to talk it over with Anna. Anna being Anna refuses to talk about it. Both Ethan and Anna are both hoping and praying for the same thing. They want the other to say either "stay with me" ,"be mine", "don't leave my side" & "let's do everything to make this work".

They drove me crazy!! Even though they knew what they wanted. Louise did an excellent job keeping you wondering and guessing who was going to make the 1st move to making their short term thing into a permanent thing. Louise is an evil genius. I can not wait until January when I find out what happens next. Louise is most definitely an author that when she puts out a new book out I won't have to read the synopsis. It will def go on my TBR list. She is that good!!

New Year In Manhattan (The Empire State Trilogy Tour #3)
✯✯5 Epic Hot Stars!!✯✯

Another grand slam by Louise!! There should be a button on Goodreads that gives them permission to automatically put new books that the authors add. Because, Louise is on my automatic add to TBR even if there's still no synopsis, no cover or release date.

This book picks up exactly where the last one ends. Ethan is on the airplane headed back to New York. Anna is standing in the airport hoping he'd comeback.

In true Ethan & Anna fashion now that they are living on opposite parts of the world they have set rules. Oh, Ethan and Anna and their rules. There rules are:

1- They will talk to each other daily, regardless of how short the conversation
2- They will see each other every other month.
3- There would be no bulls***. They would communicate freely to let each other know what was working and what wasn’t.

They def talked to each other daily. That was not a problem at all. Seeing each other wasn't a problem either. The 3rd rule with no complete 100% communication. Now, that wasn't to easy.

Anna wanted Ethan to ask her move to New York so bad. Everyday they talked and he didn't ask made her rethink his commitment to her. Oh Anna. You stupid girl!! Ethan who went from never having a girlfriend/relationship to being head over heals in love with Anna. He was thinking of moving to London and opening a new practice. But, they never spoke about that. Instead, their conversations got hot, heavy, steamy and oh yea hot!! Phew did these 2 step up their hottness.

When Anna does get to New York the hottness continues. And, Ethan. Man oh man. For a guy who's never done a relationship before. He lets Anna know she's his queen. The stuff he sets up for them to do. Man oh man!!

After, a romantic night out Ethan is all confused. Ethan knows Anna is his forever. Anna knows Ethan is her forever. But, their POV of marriage isn't exactly the same. Now, instead of Ethan listening to rule #3. He says nothing at all. Lets Anna go home the next day with her thinking he was acting weird because she was leaving. When Anna does find out she must get back to New York. Back to Ethan. But, will she get there before it to late??

I can't tell you how many times I'd be laughing out loud. Then, tearing up because of the things Ethan either did or said. Total pantie wetter that Ethan is!! I could not put this book down and I didn't want to.

This novella series is a must read!! I was very happy with how it ended. I wish we could get more of their story. What happens next. I think Louise should give me that. Hahaha. I don't know anybody else who could of done Ethan & Anna story like Louise did. I will miss them. But, I'm holding out that Louise will give me more **wink wink hint hint**

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this Series 19 March 2015

Loved this Series!
I can not say how much I loved this series. These are my first Louise Bay books but they will NOT be my last. I loved Ethan and Anna! Anna is strong and Ethan is sexy! I loved the instant connection between these two and loved the journey they had to take.
They both think theirs is one week of fun in New York while Anna is on vacation. What an amazing week it was! They are funny and enjoy each other's company. Trying to keep their time together light and fun but secretly thinking maybe there could be more. There is time apart and hot steamy times together. They are both willing to make sacrifices for each other and that is what is most enduring about this love story.
I found these stories refreshing and found myself routing for this amazing couple. I loved how much Ethan grew as he fell more in love with Anna. Pick this series will NOT be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Balance 5 March 2015
By Chicsarah - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am always a little worried when a story is compared to Fifty Shades that it is a copy cat and more sexy than story. This story delivered on story and hotness. The characters were enjoyable and the plot line predictably perfect. I like romance novels and read a ton of them, so I think I have read at least one of every plot line conceivable, but it doesn't make them any less enjoyable. The series was well paced and well written. I would recommend it for romance lovers.

I really enjoyed this series. I liked that their relationship wasn't rushed. I liked that the Author took us on a journey of how Anna and Ethan fell In Love. I love how they promised to be honest with each other as well. Great series
