Publisher's Summary

"Once in a while right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale."

I saw that quote about fairy tales embroidered on a decorative pillow at a home decorating store. Honestly, it pissed me off. Retail propaganda aimed to promote sales when any single girl in the city could tell them they'd sell more if they'd offer Keep Your Pants On, Asshole instead.

But it's fine. I don't have room for decorative pillows anyway.

And I don't have time for distractions.

Which is why I'm ignoring the distraction staring at me right now. The one who looks like he belongs on a billboard campaign. The one with the full lips and the cocky smile. The one refusing to look away even when I give him my best "no way" scowl.

The one headed in my direction. Right now.

This Dynamic Duo Does It Again!!

What a tease!!!!

This audiobook was soooo good but too short! I need more of this story and these characters. Lauren was fun, uninhibited and refreshingly normal! Max was sexy, playful and completely swoon worthy! I loved that these two have a whirlwind relationship from day 1. This novella is proof that Jana Aston is a phenomenal writer because I normally don't like standalone novella's, they are always insta-love and I find it to be so hard to connect with the love story when it has no history but I loved this novella and this couple! I was rooting for the love story from chapter 1 because this author knows how to sell insta-love!

I would have bought this audiobook based on the narration alone! Erin Mallon is my favorite narrator. She is great at all things audio but she does playful and sexy so well that I get lost in the story each time I listen to her narrate this type of story! And I know I've said it a million times but man her male voice gets me every time!!!

I'm so in love with Max!

What an adorable, hot, sweet story. I fell in love w/Max from the beginning, and glad Lauren caught up w/me. This was a quick, sexy read, but still a great story w/an HEA that has that special Jana twist.

Erin Mallon does her usual magic covering both voices, but I'm so in love w/her male narrations. She truly has a gift that makes the audiobooks so much better!

Story rating: ★★★★★ - Gah, I wish I had Lauren’s life! That’s why I eagerly read this one for the 2nd time back in October. It was so easy to slip into her life and cheer her on as she triumphed over a crappy boss and attracted a fantastic boyfriend who’d had his eye on her for months as she updated her book blog in the coffee shop they both frequented. And the engraving Lauren and Max each chose for the other’s rings were so perfect!

I can see myself listening to this one yet again when I need a quick mood fix because it was such a fantastic pick me up romance.

Not as good as her other books

I listen to this one after listening to right, wrong, trust. I'm guessing this must've been some of her earlier work because the plot is sort of nonexistent and I just couldn't figure out why the character seemed to like each other so much.

Short stories are the best stories

I loved this short audible by Jane Aston. As I've purchased Short and sweet. Straight to the point with a a little bit of a backstory to boot! I just love Erin Mallon's narrator voice. The switch from male to female voice was done eloquently.

Adorable Rom-Com

Jana Aston has got to be one of the funniest authors I've met! Times Square was originally published as part of an anthology. While Jana might be one of the "newer" authors in the anthology group, her contribution was a stand out story!

Max and Lauren have explosive chemistry and they're adorable together! The premise is hilarious. The conflict was a bit trite and too easily resolved, but the genre doesn't need to have major angst and and big conflicts. Loved Erin Mallon's narration; I appreciated listening to the story even more than my prior reading of the book.

Fast, cute and perfect.

What a lovely little nugget of audio. That’s right, I said nugget. If you’re a fan of Jana Aston and having Erin Mallon narrate, you’ll love this. I certainly did.

Yes, there was a meet cute and small world antics, but it was sweet and lovely and had all the feels.

A deliciously sweet, sexy, witty, dirty quickie!

I read this but as always, there is something especially dirty about listening to a Jana Aston book. I forgot that Lauren was from Iowa. Always adds to my enjoyment of a book when it's mentioned.

Lauren lives in Manhattan in a tiny apartment shared with three other women after deciding to staying in New York despite discovering her fiance was a cheating dirtbag. Her boss is kind of a b*tch and sends her out to Times Square to hand out flyers in a wedding dress, which leads to her meeting Max.

Max has been watching her and waiting for his chance. Not in a creepy way. He lives near where he has seen her regularly.

Their chemistry is instantaneous. I love this hot, sweet, sexy romance. Who knew two bathrooms could be such an aphrodisiac.

I loved this just as much in audio as I did in book form. Erin does a phenomenal job.

I WANT MAX!!!

This is the best audiobook. Short but packed full of love and humor and all the hot sexy feels. This author is an automatic one click for me. Love everything she writes but to also listen is an added bonus and Erin Mallon is fabulous.

Lauren has moved to New York to follow her love to only get her heart broken and shoved into a one bedroom apartment with 3 other girls sleeping on one of the two top bunk beds. How had her intuition been so wrong? She is making it but definitely where she thought she would be in her love life or career when she left home to move here. When she sees the hottie McHotterson in the "Bucks" staring at her while he has another women with him she is convinced he wants her to have a 3 way with them. Oh Lauren, reading the hot sexy romance books has definitely made your imagination run wild.

Max saw the beauty while having coffee but when he sees her again he feels it is fate and decides to pursue her. They are perfect for each other. Max is the best kind of guy, model hot, great job, two floor apartment with two bathrooms. That alone in New York would get you laid but in addition to all that he is a really nice guy. Lucky Lauren.

This book is fantastic and I highly recommend it.
