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...

Sweet and romantic, Five Things I Love About You by Sarah Ballance is the first book in what looks to be the very promising Chase Brothers series. A landscape architect from California, Estelle Donovan is in New York City to housesit for her brother. Only problem is … she absolutely loathes the city. Enter city boy, Crosby Chase, who just so happens to love his city and all it offers. These two sure have a rocky first meeting, after all he dumps a jar of pickles on her, so yeah, not so great a first impression. It was fun watching Crosby try to woo stubborn Estelle into enjoying NYC. And Chase’s family was pretty fantastic. I’m not such a fan of the girl with a borderline bitchy attitude just to show she’s independent, but Crosby was so damn endearing that he kept me reading and hoping he’d turn her around. The end was very predictable and rushed, but all in all this was an okay read.
