Review: Five Things I Love About You

For this review, I chose Five Things I Love About You by Sarah Ballance.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Five things to love about NYC. But she only needs one...

California landscape artist Estelle Donovan hates big cities. Between the grime, the smell, all the drab concrete, and the suffocating summer heat, how can anyone breathe? Housesitting her brother's New York apartment, complete with broken elevator and smoking air conditioner, is her kind of hell. It's only for two weeks, though. What could possibly go wrong?

Dumping a jar of pickles on the hot girl at the grocery store wasn't Crosby Chase's finest hour, nor was getting bitten in the butt by the demonic cat on her fire escape. But he is going to change her mind about his beloved city, damn it. In fact, if they could just make it five minutes without falling into bed, he bets Estelle he can find five things she'll love about New York.

Falling in love wasn't part of his plan. And with an entire country between them, Crosby realizes he doesn't need five reasons to make Estelle love New York.

He needs one big reason to make her stay...

This book reminds me if you find someone that makes you go weak at the knees and turns your life upside down, you must not let that person go.

Crosby meets Estelle in the grocery store by dumping a jar of pickles over her.  Not only is she hot from the heat, but now she smells like pickles.  What a way to meet a guy!!  

I love how Crosby wants the chance to have Estelle fall in love with New York City.  So, they have a bet that he can come up with 5 things she will love, but he realizes he only needs one reason for her to stay- to love him.  Will Estelle fall in love with Crosby and stay in a city that she thinks is not her?  Will she leave her mother's garden in California, the last piece she has of her mother, for a man?

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
