Perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Emma Chase—the second novel in New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy’s sizzling series about three powerhouse sisters and the men who would have their hearts.
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 an Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.**
Someone go and get me all of Monica Murphy’s books stat! This woman knows how to turn the steam on! Bow Chicka Bow Wow.
So obviously this book is filled with dangerously hot scenes that I just couldn’t get enough of, but I also couldn’t get enough of Caden. With the second Fowler installment we’re introduced to our second bad boy, Caden, though he may not have been very rude, he wasn’t definitely criminal. Though his initial motive may have been bad he was always so attentive to Rose and was never truly an asshole to her. Both of these men though start off with wanting to take advantage of them, but in the end they both fall like dominos for these girls.
The best part about having the dual point of view, besides the obvious (getting more Caden), is that we get to watch the guys fall completely in love with their girls. Watching their hard exterior crumble slowly at the hands of these girls is one of the best experiences to read in a book, I just love when the guy falls first.
Unfortunately for me again, is that I wanted more of their background, the stuff other than the sex. Rose wants out of Fleur because of Pilar, and other reasons. She speaks slightly of what she loved doing, but never truly touched on the matter again. I get invested into my characters I love seeing them grow into stronger women. I’d love to have seen Rose do what she loves to do or start a pathway to becoming that person.
Monica Murphy knows her stuff; she knows how to make it hot. The Fowler Sister series is a definitely a series for anyone who loves some romance. It’s fun, flirty, and extremely sexy. I cannot wait to read the final installment, Taming Lily, the oldest and definitely the wildest sister.
