New York For Beginners - Susann Remke

New York City is my favourite place in the world. I love the buildings, I love the people and I love the atmosphere it has which I think is different to other big cities like London. Safe to say the idea of book where a European girl moves to New York sounded just like the kind of book that would be right up my alley. 

Zoe lives in Germany but thanks to her boyfriend dumping her she decides to take up her works offer for her to spend a year working abroad in New York City. With everything going on now just seems the right time to leave her home country. However, before she leaves Zoe vows to not get to get involved with another male again for a while, they're just not worth the hassle. Arriving in New York she is terribly jet lagged and within the space of a few hours she almost sets her flat's kitchen on fire and ends up sleeping with her neighbour. Of course her neighbour wasn't ever just going to be a fling that she could forget about as he turns out to be her new boss, Thomas Fiorino. 

I actually really enjoyed reading New York For Beginners. Overall the book is nothing special but it made me laugh quite abit at certain points but then it also has some pretty heartbreaking moments too. Being someone who has been to New York City I could easily relate to some of the place references but I really enjoyed reading about the life of the rich of famous in this book. Tom is extremely rich to the extent his parents own a house in the Hamptons. Tom takes Zoe to all sorts of luxurious events which I found fascinating to read about.

I've had a quick Google search and I can't see nothing about this book being a sequel but with the cliff hanger ending I can't see it not having one. I just couldn't believe how it ended. Another book is definitely needed, I just have to know what happens between Tom and Zoe. Although New York For Beginners isn't my favourite book, I did enjoy reading it. It only took me a couple of days to read so if you're looking for a quick read I think you'll enjoy this book.
