I received this ARC for free in exchange for an honest review.
Series or Standalone: The Fowler Sisters (Book 2)
People say the youngest child has it easy, but nothing can be further from the truth. Unlike my two sisters, Violet and Lily, I’m never in the limelight. I just work my butt off for Fleur Cosmetics and get little to no thanks for it. I’ve been pushed too far one too many times, and I’m finally brave enough to do something about it.
Maybe my newfound courage has something to do with the amazing pink and white diamond necklace I wear to the party in Cannes. The instant those dazzling heirloom jewels touch my skin, they excite some deep, aching need inside. And when that guy-that totally gorgeous guy-locks eyes with me, I know this nice girl is going to be naughty.
For once it’s my turn. My turn to say no to my father, to outshine my sisters, to walk away from it all-straight into the arms of a mysterious stranger. But what if Caden is much more than I bargained for? Sure, he makes me feel sexy and free in a way I never have before, but there’s something else I can’t quite place- something dangerous. Maybe our “chance” meeting wasn’t so random. Maybe he was looking for me for a reason. Whatever his motive, there’s no going back now.
And maybe I don’t want to.
This is book 2 in the Fowler Sisters series and I have not read book 1, Owning Violet. However, this book was very easy to follow along with since it’s about the youngest sister, Rose, and book 1 is about the middle sister, Violet.
Rose is smart and dependable, working her family’s company, Fleur Cosmetics. She feels under appreciated by everyone but especially her father. Her grandmother gives her a pink and white diamond necklace that belonged to Rose’s Aunt Poppy to wear to a party in Cannes. It seems to give her the courage she needs to take time for herself and meeting Caden just helps that along.
Caden is a dirty talking thief who only wants one thing, Rose’s diamond necklace. He will do whatever it takes to get this necklace so he can cash in on it. When he actually meets Rose and sparks fly between them, Caden struggles with himself. He wants to go on the straight and narrow for Rose, but will she give him the chance? You’ll just have to read it for yourself to find out. 😉
Let me just say that Monica Murphy knows how to write scenes of the sexual nature. If you are looking for an extremely erotic story with lots of details, then this is the book for you (or rather the series). It was hot, hot, hot!!! I didn’t want to put this book down and only did so when the real world had to intervene.
