Three girls are about to discover the meaning of city love. From bestselling YA romance author Susane Colasanti! 

Sadie, a born and raised New Yorker, is hopeful and romantic and an eternal optimist who is ready to find her soul mate. 

Darcy is a free spirit from SoCal with rebellious tendencies and unlimited financial resources, looking for summer boy adventures. 

Rosanna leaves Chicago for NYC with a grand total of seventy-three cents so she can reinvent herself and forget about her past. 

Sadie, Darcy, and Rosanna are living together in New York City the summer before their freshman year of college begins. With no parents, no rules, and an entire city to explore, these three girls are on the verge of the best summer of their lives. Told from alternating points of view, City Love captures the moments in each girl’s life when everything is thrilling, amazing, and terrifying all at once…in a way it will never be again.
My Thoughts.
City Love is a young adult contemporary novel about three girls the summer before college begins settling in as roommates, with all three taking turns with chapters we follow Sadie, Darcy and Rosanna as they navigate New York, living away from their parents and finding love where they least expect it.

Sadie the eternal optimist, New York born and bred who believes in soul mates meets Austin the boy of her dreams, Darcy who's family is well off is dating guys with once before never seeing them again, after her previous boyfriend callously dumped her that is until she meets Jude, Rosanna grew up poor, when she arrives in New York she has barely a dollar to her name, against her better judgement she starts to date D, a rich kid who interns on Wall Street.

With the New York scenery as the backdrop almost part of the story itself, City Love is a fun, cute romance filled contemporary that will leave you reeling in shock at the ending, and will have you anxious for the next book.

My first Susane Colasanti book and I enjoyed it, I hope to get around to her other books at some point.

I give this 3.5/5 stars.
