One protective alpha male plus one curvy damsel in distress equals an instant attraction they can’t deny.
Billionaire nightclub owner Jason Dare doesn’t stand a chance. From the moment he lays eyes on the luscious blonde stuck on the side of the road and realizes she’s in danger, he goes from playboy to bodyguard.
Faith Lancaster’s sweet body won’t come to any harm on his watch. And watch Faith he does. He can’t take his eyes off her. Jason will stop at nothing to keep Faith safe. Even if it means moving her into his apartment and letting her into his once private life.
Hiding from her past, Faith has spent the last year building her candy business into a profitable company while keeping to herself and staying under the radar … until she meets the delicious Mr. Dare. Alpha and irresistible, he awakens desires she has long denied. It doesn’t take her long to succumb to his charms and fall hard for the man.
They both have their reasons for keeping things casual but when Faith’s past catches up with her, can Jason finally claim the woman meant to be his?
This was my first time reading a book from Carly Phillips and I enjoyed it. As soon as I saw that this was featuring a curvy heroine, I knew I had to read it. To make it even better she owned a candy shop. All I need in a book, friends.
I really liked Faith as the main character. She wasn’t going to let her brother take over her life. She packed up and moved to NYC and opened a business she always wanted. Was she still scared? Yes. But she didn’t let that hold her back.
Jason was okay. I get that he a terrible upbringing and outlook on relationships but, he couldn’t figure out what he wanted with Faith towards the end of the book. I’m glad he got his head out of his butt but it took a bit too long for my liking.
I think this book’s downfall was the fact that it wasn’t told in first person POV. Especially since it changed from Jason to Faith quite often, dual first person POV would have been so much for me. I felt like I couldn’t fully connect to their feelings or immerse myself in the story.
While I didn’t love this, I am still open to reading the next in the series. I can’t wait to see Tanner knocked down on his knees over a woman.
✨I received an ARC for an honest review.
