FREED_RELEASE BLITZ


Freed an all-new emotional and romantic standalone from New York Times
and USA Today bestselling author Carly Phillips is LIVE!

 

Freed (Rosewood Bay Series Book 3) by [Phillips, Carly]

Fall for the missing Ward sister…

Juliette Collins is privileged and isolated from the world by her over-protective father. She thinks she knows the truth about her history until a file in her father’s safe reveals she has sisters she never knew about. A family she’s never met. Betrayed, she realizes there’s a life waiting for her outside the walls of her daddy’s New York City penthouse and Juliet is determined to live it. Against her father’s wishes, she heads to a small beach community to meet her siblings… and finds herself way out of her depth instead.

In the personal protection business, Braden Clark thinks nothing of taking on a job to watch over a city girl in town for the summer. If her father wants to know his daughter is safe, it’s no problem and an easy way of earning a paycheck. Except Braden doesn’t count on falling for the sheltered Juliette. Watching her experience her firsts, getting an apartment, finding a job, meeting up with her lost sisters, soon Braden’s brand of protection becomes a little too personal. He’s mixing business with pleasure and lying to a woman he’s coming to care deeply about.

Sexual attraction burns bright between them and Braden is by her side as she finds herself, her family, and what it means to love… but what happens when she discovers his secret? That he’s been paid to watch over her all along?

A Standalone Novel


Excerpt:

“What are you doing?” The first hint of true panic since he’d been found out sliced into her father’s voice.

“I’m leaving.”

He rushed over, placing a hand on her suitcase. “Juliette, no. We can work this out. I want to make this right.”

“You can’t.” The damage was done by withholding information about her family.

“Be reasonable before you storm out. You’ve never been away from home alone. Never held a job. What are your plans?”

“And whose fault is that? You’ve kept me dependent on you, but now it’s time for me to be an adult. To meet my sisters and live my own life.” She closed her suitcase and zipped it around before turning to face him. “I can promise you, I will be perfectly fine.”

“I only ever had your best interest at heart. You have to know that.” He stepped back, a defeated expression on his face. “Would you consider taking a bodyguard?” he asked. “Someone to watch you from afar?”

She snorted at that. “No. I’m an adult and it’s time you started treating me like one. I’m taking the summer for myself. I’ll decide what happens at the end of August. Until then, please respect my privacy.”

He hesitated, then perhaps seeing the determination in her expression, hearing the certainty about her decision in her voice, he lifted a hand and stepped back. “Fine. I’ll expect to hear from you. Often.”

She shook her head. “Sorry, Dad. You’re not telling me what to do anymore.” She hesitated, knowing he had a bad heart and not wanting to upset him more despite how hurt and angry she was. “I know you love me,” she said, voice softening. “And I love you, but it’s way past time for me to be on my own.”

“So be it.”

She narrowed her gaze, surprised at his capitulation. She’d expected him to turn his chilly anger on her, but he was letting her go without too much of an argument.

Relief and excitement filled her soul. She was going to meet her family, experience everything she’d missed out on, and finally, live her own life.

For herself and nobody else.

Breathe, an all-new second chance romance from Wall Street Journal

and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips is LIVE!

 

Breathe-Cover-Facebook

Fall in love with the Wards…

From troubled teen to successful general contractor, Jake Nichols turned his life around from his time in foster care. Divorced and single, he juggles his time between his daughter and his work. Next on his agenda, a new project that is his chance to prove his worth at the job he loves. Except he never anticipates that the only girl he’s ever loved and lost as a teen is now a grown and beautiful woman in charge of the project.

Phoebe Ward has survived and conquered a painful past that includes foster care and becoming a teenaged mom. She wants nothing more than to focus on the present but it’s hard when she looks into the eyes of her son, knowing she’s tried and failed to find his father. She’s resigned herself to raising him alone with the help of her family… Until a client meeting brings her face to face with her first love. A boy… now a sexy man she thought she’d never see again … and the father of her child.

So many years have gone by and both of their lives have changed drastically. Will they be able to put the past behind them and find the second chance they both deserve?

A Standalone Novel


Excerpt

“Are you my guardian?” she quipped, trying to keep things light as she tipped her head slightly, studying his tight, serious expression.

“I want to be.” His voice was serious as hell. His tone rubbed her in the most intimate way, her body swaying toward him.

“Jake.” He reached out a hand to cup her face, his calloused fingertips rough against her skin. So intense were his features, so erotic was his touch, his protectiveness cloaking her in heat. Her nipples even puckered into tight points of need.

“If I had my way, nobody would be able to take advantage of you, because they’d have to go through me in order to get to you.” Her face warmed at his words.

“That’s sweet of you to say.”

“I’m not feeling very sweet. In fact, I’m feeling pretty damned protective.” He was, and she liked it. A lot. His fingers skimmed her cheek as he spoke.

“I was lucky enough to find you again. I want a chance to see what could be between us,” he said, taking her off guard. But God, she wanted that, too.

Despite her brain telling her they needed to tread carefully, that they had a little boy to protect, her traitorous heart still wanted more. His blue gaze bored into hers, causing her heart to pound hard in her chest.

“I know things are complicated right now, but how many people get second chances?”

“Not many,” she agreed, knowing how lucky they were.

“So wouldn’t we be foolish to waste the opportunity?”

BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

I enjoyed Breathe, the second book in the Rosewood Bay series by Carly Phillips

We had been introduced to Phoebe in Fearless, book one of the series, but I enjoyed getting to know her and Jamie more in her own book. 

Phoebe had a pretty tough upbringing, only brightened by her relationship with Jake until that ended and then she was rescued from foster care by her aunt. She’s a really strong character, a teen mom who has raised a really great, well adjusted little boy, she was accepting of her life and where it was going until she ran into Jake again. 

I liked that he was determined to be a part of her life again and was patient enough to give her time and a little space to get used to him being back and together they made a great couple. 

Jake was a great guy, he’d screwed up as a teen but had gotten his head and life straightened out and was doing well for himself. He has a little girl from with his ex and she is his life, until he runs into Phoebe again….. little realising that she’s gonna change his life in more ways than one! Regardless of how he found out that he was the father of her son, he adapted well and I thought the relationship between him and Jamie was so relaxed and right! 

I loved that the connection between her and Jake was still there and that they were as connected now as they had been as teens but the drama with his ex-wife bugged me and for that reason, I didn’t love this instalment of the series!!! 

I’m looking forward to the third book in the series, asides from finding out more about their little sister, I can’t wait to see what’s happening with Phoebe, Jake & Jamie as well as Halley & Kane 

I’m giving Breathe 4*..

A Standalone Novel


Excerpt

“Hello?” Phoebe called out.
“In here!” a masculine voice said, sounding like it came from the far side of the house.
She followed the sound and noticed a man talking on the phone, his back to her. He was tall, well built, muscles defined, as she took him in from behind. And what a behind he had, a tight ass in his faded jeans.
She ogled the sight shamelessly, her gaze traveling up his lean waist and broad shoulders. His dark hair was short and the jet-black color she preferred on a man. He wore a light blue button-down, sleeves rolled up, revealing sexy forearms.
And then he turned to meet her gaze, giving her one raised finger to indicate he needed another minute on the phone. Except she wasn’t paying attention to the gesture, because one look at that handsome face, more mature than she remembered but just as good-looking, and she froze.
Vivid blue eyes widened at the sight of her in return.
She wasn’t just looking at a stranger, she was staring into the shocked eyes of her son’s father, a man she hadn’t seen since before she found out she was pregnant.
“Jake?” she whispered, unable to comprehend the fact that she was standing in the same room with her first love. Her first everything.

RELEASE DAY ~ His to Protect by Carly Phillips

“Carly Phillips is synonymous with red-hot romance and passionate love.”

Lauren Blakely, New York Times Bestselling Author

His to Protect: A Bodyguard Bad Boys/Masters and Mercenaries Novella (Lexi Blake Crossover Collection Book 5) by [Phillips, Carly]

His to Protect, an all new novella in The Lexi Blake Crossover Collection by Carly Phillips is LIVE!

Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company. She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it’s clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her.

Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either.

With Talia’s life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her. Guarding Talia’s body certainly isn’t any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.

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


Excerpt

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.”

BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

I really enjoy Carly Phillips books but I have to say that from book one, I think the Rosewood Bay series is going to be a favourite of mine.

I LOVED Fearless. It was a fab read, with great likable characters, a good supporting cast, an interesting storyline which meant that Carly had me hooked from the first page.
I was rooting for Kane and Halley from their very first meeting.
Both had issues, neither was looking for a relationship but they found each other. I liked that they got to know more, that their relationship developed kinda slowly and that that Kane never gave up on Halley, determined to draw her out of her comfort zone and back to living her life again. 

Well written, with a good pace, low on overall angst, sweet and sexy and packed with loads of emotion. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series and have no doubt it will be just as good as this one! 

5 well deserved stars!!!

Excerpt
 

He pulled it out and glanced at the screen to find a text from Halley. Sold painting to NYC gallery owner!

The fact that she bothered to text him about her good news was huge and he grinned. Celebration is in order, he texted back.

A few hours later, Kane walked up the front steps to Halley’s instead of going around the back the way he usually did when he came to work. He’d stopped by Andi’s place of work and left with a bouquet of flowers, so he strode up the walk and rang her doorbell, planning to surprise her and hopefully take her out for dinner instead of having her cook for them both.

Although he loved her meals and the fact that she didn’t mind cooking for him, he wanted to go out with her in public. To expose her to more of the world, and he didn’t want her to have a chance to say no over the phone or via text.

He rang the bell. It took a while for her to open the door, and when she did, she looked surprised to see him.

She held Monty in her arms. “Kane! Why didn’t you come around to the deck?”

He pulled the flowers from behind his back and held them out for her.

Her expression softened as she took in the bouquet. “They’re beautiful! Thank you,” she said, accepting the wild flowers.

He’d opted for a more casual bunch instead of roses because they reminded him of her spirit. Harnessed but waiting to be set free.

“How’s the little man?” he asked, petting the dog’s head.

“He’s great. So to what do I owe the pleasure of your company?” she asked.

“Well, I was hoping to convince you to let me take you to dinner.”

She stepped back and eyed him, looking him over from head to toe. “And that explains the nice jeans and the button-down shirt. Looking good, Mr. Harmon. Very good.”

Her expression told him she liked what she saw and he grinned. “So what do you say?” he asked. “Let me take you out to celebrate your sale.”

She grinned at that. “I’m really not dressed to go out.” She gestured to the oversized tee shirt she often wore to paint.

He shrugged. “I can wait while you shower or wash up. No problem.” He wasn’t looking to give her an out.

“If you’re sure you don’t mind waiting.”

He shook his head. For her? He could wait a lifetime, a revelation that should have shocked him but didn’t. His feelings for her were real and had been building from the beginning. Acknowledging them now felt right.

He nipped at her lip one last time, swiped his tongue over her in a soothing motion before pulling back and gazing into her eyes.

“So much better than I fucking imagined,” he said in a gruff voice.

She let out a hesitant laugh as reality drifted back and settled on her shoulders. “Kane…”

“No regrets,” he warned her.

She shook her head. “I don’t. I can’t regret that kiss. But you need to know, I’m not a good bet for a relationship.”

He narrowed his gaze, that heady stare still hot on hers. “What makes you say that?”

She swallowed hard. “I’m different. You know that about me. I like being alone. I work hard, get lost in my paintings. I forget what time it is. Sometimes I don’t pay attention to days and nights. I spend more time alone than with people and most guys don’t want a girl they can’t take out with their friends because she doesn’t like big crowds.” There. She’d said it all, put her truths out there for him to hear.

Not all of her truths, of course. There were some she didn’t drag into the light of day. Ever. She didn’t even allow them in her nightmares if she could help it. The problem was, sometimes she couldn’t control her dreams. She wished she could.

“And?” he asked, as if what she’d said meant nothing.

“I’ve had unsuccessful relationships. And do you want to know why they were unsuccessful? Because I’m odd,” she said before he could answer. “And they got frustrated with me and broke things off. So I don’t do relationships anymore. I don’t like disappointing people and I don’t like being hurt when things inevitably end.”

“Hmm.”

She opened her eyes wide. “That’s all you have to say? Hmm?”

An understanding smile curved his lips. “You’re forgetting that I know you and I like what I see. I’m not looking to change you. And I’m not looking to force you into a relationship you don’t want.”

She blinked and braced herself up with a hand on the sand. “You aren’t?”

He shook his head. “I like you. I like spending time with you. And yeah, I like kissing you. A fuck of a lot. And I plan to do it more often. But trap you in a relationship if that’s not what you want?” He shook his head. “Not happening.”

She swiped her tongue over her kiss-roughened lips. “I don’t know what to say.” Nor did she know what to make of his proclamation and easy acceptance.

“I like you and you like me, yes?”

She nodded.

“And the kiss, it was good?” he asked, stroking a hand down her cheek and eliciting a shiver that went straight to her already erect and aware nipples and down to her sex.

“Yes,” she murmured.

“Then let’s not overanalyze or examine what this is or isn’t. My life is crazy what with the garage, my father, my nephew who hangs around every day… and now a side gig that I definitely enjoy.” He gestured back to her deck. “No need to label and complicate things.”

She was surprised to hear him be so nonchalant. With his pursuit of a date and him showing up here to build her deck in his limited spare time, she definitely thought he wanted something serious.

If he didn’t, if he could accept who she was and what she could give, then she didn’t see an issue with letting things be and taking it one day at a time.

“So are we on the same page?” he asked, his lips brushing over hers. “We have fun? We enjoy each other? And we don’t put pressure on either one of us with expectations?”

“Agreed,” she said, wondering why her stomach tumbled over the idea that he didn’t want her for anything more than just a good time. He’d given her exactly what she’d asked for.

Tempt Me
by Carly Phillips

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 16th

The single dad & the nanny …

Burned by an ex with a wandering eye, Austin Rhodes has sworn off women. His sole focus is his young daughter – and despite his good intentions, the little girl’s live-in nanny. He hired Mia Atwood to care for his child but he finds himself lusting after her instead. Keeping his distance isn’t easy but he’s determined to be a gentleman. Until Mia’s past comes back to haunt her and she’s in need of Austin’s brand of protection. Suddenly she’s his in every sense of the word — and he’ll do whatever it takes to shield the woman who tempts him beyond reason.

 


Excerpt:

“So what’s your end game?”

”She paused, lowering the cup from her lips. “You’ll laugh. Or at the very least you won’t think it’s overly ambitious.”

He ignored his coffee, more interested in the fascinating woman sitting beside him. “Try me.”

“Someday I’d like a family of my own. A lot of kids not all mine. Kids who’ve been in foster care too long and never adopted because everyone wants babies.”She rubbed her cup between her palms, not meeting his gaze. “See? Nothing all that enterprising, like becoming a teacher or succeeding in business.”

He couldn’t stop staring, enthralled not just by her beauty but by her heart. “I think it’s inspiring, what you want to do.”And the man by her side when she fulfilled her dreams would be one lucky SOB. “Not for me, because been there, done that…the family and marriage thing, but I’m sure it can work for the right couple.”He shrugged, realizing he’d admitted way too much. “I hope you find what you’re looking for,”he said, meaning it.

She glanced down, her gaze sweeping over her watch on her wrist. “Oh! It’s time to pick up Bailey.”She crumbled the napkin beside her and picked up her cup as she rose to her feet.

He stood, joining her as they tossed their half-finished drinks in the trash. They headed to the car and he beat her there, opening the passenger door before she could grab the handle herself. He turned back and she stopped short. He caught her before she bumped into him, grasping her around the waist and pulling her close. She sucked in a surprised breath but didn’t back away, her face inches from his. Her mouth so damned close.

He knew better, he really did but he was tired of denying himself what he wanted and his body was definitely on board. He waited for a sign she wasn’t right there with him. If she pulled back or jerked away, he’d apologize and they’d move forward from there. Instead she swayed toward him, sealing her fate.

He grasped her waist, anchoring himself by touching her, the soft sweater doing little to hide her slender body or delicate curves. He tipped his head, sliding his tongue across her lips and with a soft moan, she parted her mouth and let him inside. She tasted of vanilla and coffee, a sweet flavor that was all Mia.

Their tongues touched, tangled, and his body came alive with a hunger he hadn’t known before.

She raised her arms, hands coming to his biceps, holding on for a brief second before she gave in and wrapped her arms around him, pulling him close, giving him all the excuse he needed to deepen the kiss. He tilted his head and consumed her, swirling his tongue around the further recesses of her mouth.

He had no wall, no car door to push her against, which was a good thing because he wouldn’t have been able to control himself if he crushed his body against hers.

BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy

I’m officially a sucker for a Carly Phillips read…. the woman has me hooked!

Tempt Me is the 2nd book in the Bodyguard Bad Boys series (I have to admit I haven’t read the first book but after snippets in this one I’ll definitely be going back to check it out!)

I really enjoyed Austin and Mia’s story. Their chemistry was always there even though neither acted on it due to their responsibility and commitment to Bailey, Austin’s little girl. When they did eventually give in to their feelings and desires they lit up the page!

There was some intrigue and suspense that came from Mia’s past and Austin had to deal with a witch of an ex and these elements added to the story well. Austin’s need to protect Mia came from more than just his instinct as a bodyguard and that was more than obvious. 

Bailey was a wee sweetie, the care and affection in the relationship between her and Mia was fab to read about. 

Another fun, enjoyable and hot read from Carly Phillips. I’m looking forward to what is next from who is becoming one of my favourite authors…..

A solid 4* recommended read.
