As sizzling as a see-and-be-seen night on the town, as lip-smacking as a flawless cosmo, The Perfect Manhattan serves up a dishy tale of bartending among the beautiful peoplea€”and provides the ultimate summer cocktail. Meet Cassie Ellisa€”a young college graduate with the world on a string, a yen for screenwriting, and a need for fast cash to pay off her student loans. Eager to avoid the lucrative snooze-fest of a reliable consulting job, she shocks everyone she knows by opting for a sexier, more flexible job: mixing drinks.

When Cassie accepts a summer gig bartending in the Hamptons, New Yorka€™s most elite summer destination, she finds herself catapulted into a whirlwind of dazzling celebrity and over-the-top wealth unlike anything shea€™s ever seen. Life behind the velvet rope is hard to resist, especially when she finds herself falling for a Hamptons hottie named James.
