  • Debbie Oliphant
    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This was a fun read and it is the second installment of the Romancing Manhattan series. This book is about Quinn, who is Finn's brother in the first book. He is an attorney representing a client that wants to claim a valuable piece of property that belongs to Sierra's family, the opposing counsel. The two meet in court where they are ordered to work together to find the evidence th...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UK All It Takes is the second installment of Kristen Proby's Romancing Manhattan series and follows Quinn Cavanaugh, Finn's brother from book one. He doesn't have plans of ever commiting to a woman, and his past has left him more than a little scared to get close to someone, afraid that he would lose them somehow. But when he has to work with Sienna Hendricks on a case, even though she's opposing counsel, he realizes t...

    All It Takes is a love story for Manhattan. All of that park, the boulevards, the life style, the statue of liberty and i can smell the brownies and the coffee.. The story itself is almost non existing. The insta lust/love is everywhere. I can not even understand why they fall in love actually. But i can feel love for Manhattan. I never been to Manhattan and this book brings that romantic sentimental about the city.And because of that, i give 3 s...

    4 1/2 "You're my home." Stars!As usual KP had me grinning like an idiot at the end and craving more. I just love her stories. They're sweet, romantic, and HOT- with a whole.cast of friends and family to love. Quinn and Sienna did not disappoint. I cannot wait for Carter to find love again. Fingers crossed it's soon. Happy reading!

    BRILLIANT!!! I couldn't put this book down. From the start to the end it was so good. The story just kept getting better and better and hotter. Quinn and Sienna are brilliant characters I really liked them from the start. Sienna is a strong independent attorney from the Bronx. She sassy and knows what she want. Being in a job that is mainly ran by men she has to be this way. Also growning up with most the men in her family doing the sam BRILLIA...

    2019-07-30 ‘ You are Home’ StarsHoly mother of SWOONFESTS!!! All It Takes indeed took it all, most of all my breath away!

    All It Takes is book two in the Romancing Manhattan series of interconnected standalones. Each book is about a different brother. I would recommend reading the first book before reading this one (as the narrators from that book are in this book a lot).This book was fun, cute and super sexy.The narrators are Quinn (male) and Sienna (1st person POVs). They are both lawyers.I really enjoyed this book. I loved getting to see Carter, Finn and London a...

    Such a sweet, addicting book. This is a standalone that is also part of Romancing Manhattan series, and this time we get Quinn (Finn's brother) and Sienna's story.One thing that I love is that, as usual with this author, it's sweet, sexy and oh so full of love. But somehow this series has all that but it's also different. I think it has a sobriety about it that we don't find in her other books, it's new, it's maybe more mature even, and I loved i...

    3.5/5.0What a sweet escape for a day when one is in the mood for a little romance! There is a little bit of mystery that keeps the pages turning, along with the growing relationship between the two main characters. I think my biggest complaint is that the actual story, itself, isn't anything at all like the synopsis describes. I was expecting one thing but got something completely different.Now, that doesn't mean the story wasn't good - just a co...
  • Stacee
    I had read the previous book in this series and I was interested in the brothers, so I was intrigued about this one. I liked Sienna and Quinn. They’re both motivated, passionate about what they do, and loyal to their families. It was easy to root for them and want everything to work out. I am intrigued at the set up for the next book and I am very happy to see the brothers talk about how Finn was an ass in the first book. Plot wise, it was okay...

Quinn and Sienna are both lawyers and are fighting of a piece of land Sienna's grandfather willed to the city of Bronx. Quinn's client claims the land was given to HIS great grandfather years ago. Now these 2 lawyers have to try to figure out who really has the rights to the land in question.I wanted the land to belong to Sienna's family because they wa...

    Quinn is a successful attorney who believes in work hard and play infrequently because of the first option. He and his brother and brother-in-law have a practice in Manhattan with a client who claims to own a park in the Bronx – an integral neighborhood playspace. His ‘proof’ of ownership is a 100+ year old IOU that has yet to be authenticated or validated. But, the holder is determined to claim ownership and start development. Sierra and h...
  • Lynn
    Two lawyers that love to argue and seems to be their foreplay, sign me up for that! Sienna and Quinn met at one of her lowest days and I think the fire she needed to get through that meeting and in court kept her from sitting in her grief. Having someone who understands and can empathize with your pain is an indescribable gift to be given and Sienna was appreciative, but rightfully hesitant. Kristen Proby has never failed to bring her readers a r...

    i m not sure how much cost the family, if u have that kind of money n u can share, will u do so? even it’s illegal? we are only human, greedy all the time.that’s the story line but.... are we looking for this?

    Another Cavanaugh Brother has taken me down for the count. Can you say swoony?! OH MY, Quinn took hold of my hand and didn't let go. He was the perfect match for the smart and sweet Sienna Henricks. As the two work on a case together, the more time they spend - the more their connection grows until it can't be denied any longer.These two together just made me smile. They were witty and harmonious together. They just fit from the beginning. They w...

    Kristen has once again showed us true love. I loved Quinn and Sienna's story. I like how they have to deal with the ethics of their jobs. I do believe I have a new favorite Proby man. Can't wait for the next in the series!

    See the full review at HarlequinJunkie.comSuper steamy with lively bantering and an interesting plot that revolved around family issues, All It Takes was a solid follow up in Kristen Proby’s Romancing Manhattan series.I was so happy to get this second book in the Romancing Manhattan series after having a lot of fun with book one, All the Way, which was about our hero Quinn’s brother Finn. It was great to see Kristen Proby bring to life the bi...

    Wow!!!! It's no secret that KP is my go to gal when it comes to love stories so as soon as I saw this on edelweiss I had to request it! The last book in this series didn't really hit the mark for me- It was good- but not a story I'll replay over and over in my head- so when I picked up this book I had my reservations- I knew I would like it but I doubted I would love it.....I was soooooo very very wrong!!!! It was amazing! Quinn and Sienna were a...
  • Yvette ~ Nose Stuck in a Book
    There’s nothing I enjoy more than diving in to a new book from one of my favorite authors so I was excited to get my hands on All It Takes by Kristen Proby. The second standalone novel in the author’s Romancing Manhattan Series is part workplace romance and part rivals-to-lovers romance, following the love story of two attorneys with chemistry so palpable, it’s not long before they line between business and pleasure is blurred. It’s not t...

    In the first book, we met the romance between Finn Cavanaugh, a lawyer, and the London, an actress.Now, let's meet the other lawyer brother, Quinn.Since the family's two major losses in a short time (Darcy, his sister, and shortly thereafter, the father), Quinn has become almost obsessive about her mother's health. And despite working seven days a week at the family's very successful law firm, he always takes time (not to say daily) to visit his ...

    ***ARC Provided by the Author***4.5 StarsOne of these days, there's going to be a book by Kristen Proby that I don't love. This wasn't it. The thing I love most about her titles is that it's a falling in love story without the angst (although this one had a little) that makes you worry that the couple won't get their happily ever after. I also liked that the story had tension that was internal and external, but blended well and it felt realistic ...
  • Tracey Jerald
    Kristen Proby’s Romancing Manhattan series takes me home. See, I’m a girl from whose heart never really left the Northeast. So, it’s a joy every time Kristen uses her incredible voice to describe my “home.” And All It Takes, does that.Sienna jumped off the pages to me as someone I would identify with as one of my relatives; a New Yorker that lives in the city and thrives on its energy. She’s practical, smart, sassy and has no problems...

    This is the second installment in this series, I didn't know that but I was not lost I just wished that I had started from the beginning and maybe I would have enjoyed more, please do not think that I didnt I did I just felt thaaaat something was missing so I do plan to go to read the first book and see if I am missing something so that goes to show you that had I not enjoyed it somewhat I wouldn't have even bothered. So we meet Sienna whose gran...

    All It Takes is the second installment in the Romancing Manhattan series. However, you can easily read it as a standalone. Quinn and Sienna meet as opposing attorneys but have some notable chemistry right away. I love them as a couple. It addition to the developing romance, there is an undercurrent of deceit going on regarding a piece of property that is supposed to be left to the city as stated in Sienna's grandfather's will. Tied in with all of...
  • Suzy Stork
    I love that I devour every one of Kristen Proby’s books in a day. I love this series, and the NY setting. Quinn and Sienna have to work for their relationship, but it still has the instalove connection that I can count on from Kristen’s writing. There’s always a solid story line, with plenty of reference to characters from prior books in the series, or introductions of future characters. I can’t wait for Carter to get his HEA, and I hope ...
  • Danielle ⚾️ (Danielle's Escape)
    I I think this is the first book that I’ve given four stars to that Proby he has written. It felt a bit rushed to me even though I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I was disappointed there was also no epilogue. Hope that we see more of these two in upcoming books. Hope Nora is in the next book! I see a future or maybe even Louise since she has her head on straight now.

    I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.This is such a great series and I think this second book might be even better than the first. This time, the story is all about two New York lawyers forced to work together to discover who actually owns the land Sienna’s grandfather bequeathed to the city. The chemistry between Sienna and Quinn is fabulous. Sparks fly between the two lawyers from the start, and as their case be...
