Fall in love with the Wards…

Mechanic and garage owner, Kane Harmon is used to the wealthy beautiful women visiting his beach town. He doesn't get involved because he knows most females would merely be slumming for the summer.

Except Halley Ward isn't just passing through. She lives a solitary life in a bungalow on the beach. A woman tormented by her past, distant from her wealthy family, different from Kane's usual fare of town girls who know his M.O.- Don't expect more than he's willing to give.

Kane rescues Halley and her broken down car from the side of the road and instantly he's hooked. She says she's not interested in him. He knows she lies. And he makes it his mission to bring her back to life, to return her emotionally to her family. To show her the colors around her were as vibrant as the ones she puts on her canvas.

Until past meets present and threatens all the progress they've made. Then it's Halley's turn to step up and stand up for the relationship and life she's finally coming to believe she deserves.

Now…what do you say to some Italian ices? Ever been to Hank’s?”
She shook her head. “I’ve passed it but there’s always been a ridiculous crowd of people out front.”
“Well, it’s worth the wait. Feel like going on the way home?”
She nodded. “If you can keep me occupied while we wait, then I don’t mind.”
He laughed. “I think I like that challenge.”
When they arrived at Hank’s, an outdoor ice cream and Italian ices stand, they discovered a short line. Not enough for him to have to entertain her, and before they knew it, they were ordering. 
Because they also had ice cream, Halley changed her mind when it came to ordering and asked for vanilla ice cream with hot fudge topping. Kane got a red Italian ice. 
They took their desserts and walked over to a short brick wall and hopped up, sitting side by side, legs swinging as they ate. 
He finished his first. “Good?” he asked, putting his cup down beside him. 
She glanced over, laughing. “Your tongue is red.”
He stuck it out at her and grinned. 
“Want some of mine?” She held out the spoon of vanilla and chocolate mixed. 
“No, doesn’t exactly mix with my cherry.” He paused, as if thinking of something. “Unless…”
“Hmm?” She raised an eyebrow. 
“Unless I’m kissing you.” And before she could react, he leaned over and swept his tongue over her lips and into her mouth, devouring her quickly but thoroughly. 
She moaned into him, leaning in close, savoring the warm cherry flavor he brought to her dessert. 

Before she was ready, he lifted his head and met her gaze, his eyes dark and hungry. “Now that is how to eat an ice cream.”


5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, secrets, and heartbreak. 

This is Halley and Kane’s story. Halley lives a solitary life in a beach town. Her fears of the past keep her to herself. When her car breaks down Kane is the man who comes to her rescue. He is interested in her, but she knows she just can’t deal with anything else right now. She wants him to believe that she is not interested in him. He can see the broken woman she is and is determined to bring her back to life. Just as he starts to make some progress on getting her to live and see things might work out for them her past comes back to tear it all down. Will she submit to the past and break again or will she fight for the man who has finally made her start to feel and live again?

I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. 

I highly recommend this book. 


5 Stars from Brianna!

Carly Phillips never disappoints me whenever I read her books and I gotta say...this one sounded a bit deeper and way more intense, emotional than her usual. Plus a bonus, it was the start of a new series. So obviously I jumped on the opposite to read as quickly as I could and I'm happy to say that Carly totally kicked ass. Fearless is book one in the Rosewood Bay series and what a journey this was.

One moment, one interaction, one happenstance is going to change their lives forever. She is a prisoner in her own body and it's him who is going to help set her free.

Halley and Kane captivated me from the moment they stepped into my kindle. Their chemistry was intoxicating. Their banter was intense. Their attraction, magnetic. Kane was real man perfection in every single way and Halley, the girl you want to crack wide open just like him.

If you haven't experienced Carly Phillips, you are missing out.
I highly recommend this book.
