Yuska lagi kesambet setan Harlequin!

Akhirnya, lengkap juga Simply Series gue, walaupun belinya di dua OL shop berbeda, karena stocknya Bukabuku terbatas. Setelah selesai membaca dan mereview Simply Sexy yang merupakan buku terakhir dari Simply Series, gue malah mulai membaca buku pertamanya ini. Kalau Simply Sexy lebih chicklit dengan latar belakang dunia media, Simply Sinful lebih berbau suspense dengan tokoh utama seorang detektif yang menyelediki kasus sekolah kepribadian yang memiliki bisnis...more

Let me start by saying, I really wanted to like this book. The storyline seemed interesting, if not your typical contemporary romance plot of girl meets boy, they fall in love quickly, deny their feelings for one another then come to their senses and live happily ever after.

That aside, the story started off well; the main character, Kayla Luck, inherits Charmed!, an etiquette service for business men. Detective Kane McDermott, however, has reason to believe it's a cover-up for a high class esco...more

Another template: they meet under false pretenses, she falls for him, he’s wracked with guilt, she discovers his secrets, decides to help him despite his lies, he keeps pushing her away, she’s in danger and he realizes he loves her, but he still pushes her away, until the very end when he realizes he cannot live without her.

It started great, I loved the premise of a male-polishing-school possibly being the cover for an escort service and the police sending someone undercover, someone who cannot...more

Com o mesmo titulo que um dos livros de Kate Pearce, Carly Phillips apresenta-nos uma pequena história, sem grande desenvolvimento e sem grande profundidade. Com muitas repetições, de sentimentos e discursos, o texto vai fluindo bastante bem, apesar de tudo. Digamos que é uma história para relaxar, com muito romance mas também com muitas dúvidas emocionais.
Normalmente isto não acontece ou se encontra muito nos romances, mas neste caso, Carly Phillips fez questão de colocar os personagens a tomar...more

Very quick and fun read..practically read it in one sitting. I found it to be funny despite the circumstances with Kane pretending to need etiquette classes.... It was just one of those stories where you can kinda guess what's going to end up happening but still it's perfect when you need a simple story that wont bog your mind so much.

Another example of "telling instead of showing" – the heroine is supposed to have a higher than normal IQ; the only "proof" shown so far is that she likes having books around her. She's had two one-night flings in her whole entire life (one-night only not from her decision), but she jumps so easily in bed with the hero.
The hero understands from "nothing" that she cannot be the mastermind behind a prostitution ring.
Why did I pick this one up? It was cheap; I knew I could read it fast. I remembere...more

Boring, uneven, lame, disappointing, repetitious – those are just the few adjectives that come to mind. I really expected better after all the glowing things I had read about Carly Phillips. I may try another book, but two is my limit when it comes to sex starved heroines and heroes who constantly have a hard-on – as if that makes a book plot.

Kayla Luck has inherited a business called Charmed! from her aunt. She is also a beautiful, built babe. The plot says she is smart, but I don’t buy that....more
Perdani Budiarti
Dari sinopsisnya aku pikir buku ini akan menarik untuk dibaca. Namun ternyata yang kutemukan adalah romance ringan ala seri harlequin biasanya yang dipaksa dibalut dengan sedikit misteri yang menurutku tidak berkesan.

Perkenalan kedua tokoh utama yang terjadi karena penyamaran sang pria terasa setengah hati. Karakter Kane sebagai calon klien kurang meyakinkan dan langsung berubah cepat saat mulai mengajak kencan Kayla. Bahkan rasanya adegan percintaan keduanya terjadi terlalu cepat sementara aku...more

I loved the premise of a male-polishing-school possibly being the cover for an escort service and the police sending someone undercover … it actually made it quite funny and easy to read. The ‘mystery’ part of the book really needed some development and so did the romance. This book should have been a bit longer. Or at least better developed …
Too quick but a fun read. I found it to be funny despite the circumstances with Kane pretending to need etiquette classes.... It was just one of those stor...more

Romance with a mystery twist not my favorite but not the worst thing I have ever read.
Trang Nguyen
A nice light read about Kane a police detective with a bad childhood who meets Kayla a former accountant who just inherited an etiquette business from her late aunt. What Kayla doesn't know is the purpose of Kane's courtship on the innocent, Kayla is that he believes she is running a prostitute ring. What Kane doesn't realize is that he falls for Kayla versus keeping her under surveillance for his job.

Another one of my light reads to read in between the deeper books.

E que mal começo o desafio! Tinha bastantes expectativas para este livro e a culpa é toda da capa original (ver capa abaixo) mas desiludiu-me um pouco. A premissa até é bem interessante mas depois a execução deixou muito a desejar.

I was really disappointed in this book. The book never developed any kind of character depth at all. I tried to give this series a chance by reading the first two but by the third I gave up nothing about these books was compelling me to keep on reading. I have read other books by this author and some of them I have enjoyed but not this time.

I've read other books by this author that I liked a lot more. This one felt thin. The hero/heroine were okay, and the danger was plausible, but the internal emotional dialogue and decisions felt forced, and I just didn't buy it. I did buy this book as part of a "bundle," though, so I have 4 more to read, which I hope will be better.
Carrie
He's a big, badass cop who keeps everyone at arms length, and she's a brainy, blonde it a bombshell's body. When Kayla inherits her family's charm school she has no idea that it may be a front for something more, and when Kane goes to investigate that something more he has no idea what's in store for him with Kayla.
Jennifer
I didn't expect to like this. I picked it up at lunch when I forgot my book at home and I literaly just grabbed a random book from a pile and the cover didn't discourage me so I took it to lunch. I remember thinking - Hu. This is pretty good! I read it in 24 hours and then looked for more from this author.
Vanessa
Heran.. Sampai akhir cerita gak dijelasin siapa pelaku yg mengancam Kayla. Lumayanlah utk romance, tapi parah utk suspense. Pas baca gak ada deg2annya krn aksinya sangat sangaat kurang! Padahal bisa dibilang ini tipe story suspense romance. :/
Tanya
I've had this book for a very long time and wish I didn't wait so long to read it! It was a nice, refreshing break from all of the mystery/thriller books I've been reading! I am currenty on the second book in the series, Simply Scandalous.
Michelle
quick easy read! I love me some Carly Phillips!! =) The Chandelor brothers is my favorite series by her! This was a quick, fun summer read! Starting book 2 after I do a load of laundry and finish the dishes.
Kelly
First of a three part series. Fun, quick read with interesting characters and a touch of mystery. It isn't classic literature, but it makes for a couple of fun hours.

Super quick read, but not a lot of substance. And the answer of what actually happened in the mystery portion of the book, was never really explained. But I really like this author! Just not my favorite book.
Jennifer
Great story. An easy, fun read. When I'm in the mood for something light and easy to read Carly Phillips never disappoints. Humor, romance and a bit of scandal all rolled into one neat package!

I enjoyed the dynamics between Kayla & Kane. Right off the bat there was a spark. It was an interesting twist with the whole investigation going on as well as the romance. It was a good read.
April Suter
266 pages of sexy summer reading. Kayla inherits her aunt's Charmed! business and Kane is investigating a prostitution ring. They do find fire but is Charmed! and prostitution related?

Recommends it for: Those who like a little spicier romance novels.
I was shocked how fast this book read. I'm a huge Jennifer Crusie fan and hadn't read too many of Carly Phillips books, but having read this one I'll be reading more of hers soon.

sipnosisnya sih keren,tapi ceritanya engga banget,kaya dipaksa gitu...mistrinya ga dapat ah,masa ngantung gitu,karakternya juga engga kuat... mana beli langsung 3 seri,hikz.
MK (Food actvist)
I read this a while back and this series stays true to its roots. The characters are sexy the story is fast paced and the dialouge is funny, and tight. You'll love it.
