Meet Me In Manhatten is a Reality Based Romance™, started by True Vows, and I was asked to take part of this tour of three books of True Vows. So Meet Me In Manhatten is the first of the three books, that I will read and write a review for, and I feel so honored to be asked to read these three Reality Based Romances™. I have always loved reading romances, and I just loved reading Meet Me In Manhatten. This wonderfully written romance started when they meet again after fifteen years in Manhatten, and then the story takes us back to when they first fell in love, when they were both fresh and in high school, and when they find they are true soul mates, and how they both lose the love they miraculously found in each other. Now fifteen years after, they start to connect once more, not knowing how this will end, but willing to take the chance to re-ignite the once tender love. I found this to be such a heart warming story, that had me shedding a tear or two, especially since its a true love story. I found it to be heart wrenching throughout the whole story, knowing how much this couple has gone through to find each other after so long. Meet Me In Manhatten is a true treasure!!
