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 wo ...more
seriously though lid ain't coming off
I have come to terms that Monica knows how to write sex scenes, damn the women knows how to write I mean talk about descriptive. For owning violet I had a old women knitting but for rose I give you this
it's sister number 3 this time the one and only rose fowler. Rose is the youngest out of the fowler sisters and definitely the most indecisive and glamorous one out of all the sisters. Rose has some things that ...more

I absolutely loved the first book in "The Fowler Sisters Series" entitled Owning Violet" and I couldn't wait to read the second book which gave us Caden and Rose's story. Monica has delivered another fantastic read with " Stealing Rose" and I was not disappointed.
It's hard to face my wrongs in front of a woman who I never, ever want...more
This book made a leap out of my usual genres and I liked it.
I sometimes like to get out of a grove and give my mind a change of pace and thought that way I can review with a fresh start.
I picked a good one here, I didn't realise it was book two, but oh well, I loved it anyway.
I picked up that this is the story off Rose and Caden, Rose being the younger off the siblings.
Rose comes from a good family background with money, the other side of the spectrum is Caden, hes a thief.
They meet at a party ...more
4 con me baby stars
Monica Murphy keeps knocking how to be a hot alpha male out of the park in the Fowler Sister’s books. Stealing Rose is hotter than Violet so look forward to that.
Rose is the younger child and feels overshadowed by the perfectness that is Violet and forgotten about due to Lily’s wild antics. And with Pilar tightening her connection to their father and rumor of engagement going around Rose feels that she is just not happy working for Fleur anymore. She decides to show off h ...more
I have been a fan of Monica Murphy/Karen Erickson's books for a while now. I have read a few, and for the most part they always seem to fall into two categories for me, 'Awesome' and 'Average', one thing that can always be commended is the writing, but on occasion the story let's it down.
"I'm just playing"... "With fire."
Stealing Rose unfortunately is in the latter column for me. Once again the writing is Monica's usual stellar quality, but the story-l ...more
There are books for every mood. Sometimes you want something sad and full of emotion, other times you want something action packed or maybe a storyline full of angst. And when you’re in the mood for hot and erotic you can pick up Stealing Rose.
In the first Fowler Sisters book, Owning Violet, the storyline focused on Violet and the Fleur Cosmetics. We watched, as her father was steamrolled by Pilar while at the same time Violet fell for Pilar’s accomplice, Ryder. In this book the story is less ab...more

I really enjoyed Stealing Rose the second book of the Fowler sister’s.
I liked Rose. Her character was a bit scattered but I think this was due to her youth. She was naive but rebellious. She is looking for her family’s approval but willing to follow her heart. I love that she throws all caution out the window and goes after what she wants if only for a little while.
Like Rose, I fell for Caden too. Since meeting Rose, he’s trying to bre ...more
I love losing myself when I'm with him.
When he kissed me by the pool and then ran away, I was hooked. I wanted more. I wanted my adventure, and I got it in the form of Caden.
This is the second story in the series of the Fowler sister. I enjoyed the first one and I enjoyed this one. Rose and Caden have a very sexual relationship that quickly develops into something more. I also was worried Caden wouldn't turn out to be the "good guy", but by the end of the story I approve. Ano ...more
Caden might have been a bit of a ass at times and maybe I wanted to slap him and and yell at him but yes I love this man he is amazing and I am so happ ...more
Well, it started out slow and had a whole lot of sex and not much more. Rose was seriously wishy-washy about her job...quitting, not quitting, quitting. The last 4 or 5 chapters saved it from being two stars. I'm still trying to figure out how she made herself come while humping his thigh at the same time giving him a blow job. I don't think the human body can bend and twist that way.
The story was okay, the characters were too, but there was just something about this book that made it hard for me to keep focus! I wasn't particularly interested, mainly in the overall story and also Caden. His past and present were uninteresting for me since I never had a particular curiosity about this type of person. The first novel was better. In comparison, this book was a solid okay, but apart from meeting, having lots of sex and then suddenly falling in l ...more
Rose is the youngest of the three sisters. She’s headstrong and stubborn, and she feels like she’s living in Violet and Lily's shadows, her two older sist ...more
This story follows the youngest Fowler sister, Rose. She is trying to find her place in the world, after feeling lost at Fleur Cosmetics, especially with her father's relationship with Pilar Vasquez reaches new heights. She meets Caden, who has a dark past, and a secret that would definitely ruin all his chances with Rose.
The plot was interesting, but Violet and Ryder's story is still my favorite. As for characters, Rose came off a little immature, especially with the strength she d ...more
I'm thinking that the three Fowler Sisters books together make up one whole story. Violet's story was the introduction to the world. Rose's story is the middle where things slow down a bit and get comfortable. I'm betting Lily's story will be the most exciting as it ties up all the loose ends.
More to come soon.
I have to say that at first, I wasn't too sure about Caden, I didn't really like the first glimpse we got into his head. He just seemed like an arrogant jerk, but I decided to give him a chanc ...more

Stealing Rose is the second book in The Fowler Sisters series by Monica Murphy and follows the youngest Fowler sister Rose. I’ll be honest with you, when I first attempted to read Owning Violet I couldn’t get into it. I tried on three different occasions and each time I ended up putting the book down. I don’t know why because the story isn’t bad, the writing is engaging a ...more
This is Murphy's second book in the Fowler Sisters Series and I think something is secretly building throughout these books. Who knows, I may just be imagining things but I just have a feeling something big, likely regarding Rose is gonna come out in the next book. Anyhow, Rose is trying to figure out what she is going to do with the rest of her life because she certainly isn't happy and she doesn't feel appreciated working for the family's cosmetic business. She is ready to make ...more
In this steamy romance we meet Rose and Caden. Rose is the youngest sister, used to being overlooked and passed over in the family cosmetic's company Fleur. But Caden sees only a sexy, attractive woman, one he'd like nothing better than to spend time with - and not only because he has designs on her diamond necklace. The passion between them flares hot and bright but will it burn out like fireworks when Caden's true motives and past are ...more
This book had a bit of everything that at times I was not sure if I liked or hated.
Rose is part of the Fleur Cosmetics. She is Violet’s sister. Rose wants to quit her position at Fleur since she feels unappreciated and she feels that her father’s “girlfriend” is just waiting for the chance to get the company. Caden is a thief. He steals jewelry from the wealthy and there is a piece of jewelry that Rose has that he wants. They meet at Cannes when Caden saves Rose from a guy who gets a l ...more
Right from the very start I was hooked, and I read the entire book in one sitting, which is practically unheard of for me these days. I just couldn't bring myself to put this book down.
I loved the char ...more

STEAM: 5 Stars
Change is the only permanent thing in the world, and I always believe that there is good even in the worst kind of person.
Rose had always been the ‘good daughter’, the one who can’t do any harm, the one they can always depend on – and she was freakin’ tired of it. She was tired of being the wallflower, of being underappreciated, of having that position in the company because of her last name. She wanted to be just like Lily. She wanted to be free, she wanted out ...more
