Guest Review: Nate and the New Yorker by Kevin Klehr

2nd Edition
Cameron has it all. He’s rich, lives in Manhattan, and even has a cross-dressing butler. But then he meets Nate, an Australian who’s bitter about love. Cameron is determined to turn this realist into a dreamer by sharing his world of classy restaurants, Broadway shows, and fabulous parties. And while Nate’s friends see the makings of a fantasy romance, it’s Nate who has to learn that in order to open his heart, he has to face a painful secret.

Reviewer: Shee Reader

Nathan works in a coffee shop in Sydney. Our story opens with him on holiday with his friends Ben and boss Lucy. In Prague, as they get ready to return to Australia, they meet a charming and handsome man from the US. Cameron is a rich playboy who after their meeting in Prague, pursues Nate hard and fast. Nate visits New York and Cameron tries to woo Nate by spoiling him, but Nate still feels distant from the real Cameron.

There is lots of travel and jet-lag in this little book, and a wonderful duo of the lesbian aunt and transvestite butler! There is a super twist too, that was unexpected and dealt with beautifully.

The relationships are realistic and I enjoyed the banter between Nate and his friends. I didn’t really like Cameron until he’d been to visit Nate in Sydney, and the prefixes to names the characters used in conversation grated on me after a while. In all though, this was a sweet easy read that had nice character development. If you fancy a short, sweet romance with a twist, give this one a try.

I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
