Marriage on Madison Avenue

Marriage on Madison Avenue

by Lauren Layne

Who doesn’t love a friends-to-lovers story? The third book in The Central Park Pact follows Audrey Tate and Clarke West, who have been best friends since childhood without a single romantic entanglement. Clarke is the charming playboy Audrey can always count on, and he knows that the ever-loyal Audrey will never not play along with his strategy for dodging his matchmaking mother: announcing he’s already engaged…to Audrey. But what starts out as a playful game between two best friends turns into something infinitely more complicated, as just-for-show kisses begin to stir up forbidden feelings. As the faux wedding date looms closer, Audrey and Clarke realize that they can never go back to theway things were, but deep down, do they really want to?

The sequel to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before picks up with Lara Jean and boyfriend Peter Kavinsky at odds because while their relationship started as fake, it sure didn’t turn out that way. It should be smooth sailing now that they’re on the same page again, but then another boy from Lara Jean’s past returns to her life, along with her feelings for him. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?
