Review of Sexsomnia – Sleepless in Manhattan by Anya Omah

“Even my cell phone was overheating.”


Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Length (Est.): 330 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Jayden King is successful, charismatic, attractive—and bored to death. Especially of women, who fall at his feet by the dozens… eventually leaving him so indifferent to sex that he decides to say goodbye to the singles scene and focus all his energy on expanding his hotel empire. He’ll need a good assistant to help him, and Abigail Davis, fresh out of grad school, seems like the perfect fit for one of Manhattan’s most sought-after jobs. Until she suddenly withdraws her application.

When Jayden hears why, he can hardly believe his ears. No woman’s ever dared tell the millionaire bachelor what she really thinks of him… and Abigail isn’t one to mince words. Jayden’s not about to take no for an answer, and changing her mind is a challenge he can’t pass up.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Abigail is one outspoken woman, but to her credit she does it justly most of the time. She is someone who would rather go without the perfect dream job rather than put up with a boss she couldn’t stand to be around. But when he gives her a proposition that puts all the cards in her hand even she can’t walk away from that….at least not for too long.

“Oh, come on. I Googled him a minute ago. You can’t tell me you don’t think he’s hot. Even my cell phone was overheating.”

Jayden is used to getting everything he wants, including women, but after a while it was something he grew tired of and instead of partying all the time he threw himself into his work. Abigail is the only woman, besides his sister (whom I absolutely love), that will stand up to him and speak her mind, which is exactly why he is so infatuated with her.

“Any way I can help with this fantasy you’re having?”

Although Abigail and Jayden start falling for each other they both still have their secrets. She has sexsomnia and is hiding the fact that she’s doing a study to try and figure out what exactly she does in her sleep. And he knows about it, but doesn’t tell her…not even after she tells him everything about it. Nothing good comes from secrets.

Sexsomnia is one of those books with a little bit of everything. It has humor, sex, intrigue, a tangled web of lies, and love and passion. I absolutely loved it.

My favorite part is this conversation he has toward the beginning of the book with his sister about hiring Abigail. I absolutely love his sister. She had me completely cracking up.
