Made in Manhattan by Lauren Layne is now live!
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Central Park Pact comes a reverse My Fair Lady for the modern era about a pampered and privileged Manhattan socialite who must teach an unpolished and denim-loving nobody from the Louisiana Bayou how to fit in with the upper crust of New York City.
Violet Townsend has always been a people pleaser. Raised in the privileged world of Upper East Side Manhattan, she always says the right things, wears the right clothes, and never rocks the boat. Violet would do *anything* for the people closest to her, especially her beloved grandmother. So when she asks Violet to teach the newly-discovered grandson of her friend how to fit in with New York City’s elite, Violet immediately agrees. Her goal? To get Cain Stone ready to take his place as heir to his family company…but to say he’s not exactly an eager student is an understatement.
Born and raised in rural Louisiana and now making his own way in New Orleans, Cain Stone is only playing along for the paycheck at the end. He has no use for the grandmother he didn’t know existed and no patience for the uppity Violet’s attempts to turn him into a suit-wearing, museum-attending gentleman.
But somewhere amidst antagonistic dinner parties and tortured tux fittings, Cain and Violet come to a begrudging understanding–and the uptight Violet realizes she’s not the only one doing the teaching. As she and Cain begin to find mutual respect for one another (and maybe even something more), Violet learns that blindly following society’s rules doesn’t lead to happiness…and that sometimes the best things in life come from the most unexpected places.

Violet has endured a lot of loss in her life which has resulted in her always wanting to do whatever she can for the people she cares about. She has always done what was expected of her and knows the importance or proper manners and your reputation. After her grandmother passed away it was her grandmother’s best friend Edith who has been there for her so when she asks her for help with her grandson, she can’t say no.
Cain knew nothing about his father or his family since he was raised by his mother and he has a life and a business in New Orleans. He isn’t certain he wants to take control of his grandmother’s company especially if it means changing who he is and he isn’t about to change his mind by a woman who places more importance on appearances than who he is.
Cain and Violet find themselves on opposite sides so there is bound to be some tension. As they spend time together, they learn a lot not only about each other but also themselves as the enchanting romance between them unfolds.
