Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
I really enjoyed the characters and storyline of this book and the whole series. I am happy that there was some closure for Landon. It seemed that he was stuck living with his demons and was not moving on. He needed someone that would help him move past his loss. Vivi was a wonderful character that had so much guilt for things that were out of her control. Their attraction is what draws them to each other, but it is their shared pain that leads them to love. It was great to see Landon, Tanner an ...more

I have been anticipating Landon's book while knowing it would be an emotional read because of his brother and Carly did not disappoint with his story! This was my favorite book of the series with the chemistry between the characters, gripping storyline and a breathtakingly beautiful love story that unfolds. If you're looking for a story that will pull at your heartstrings this is one you need to read!

Landon and Vivi are, I think, my favorite couple of the series. I could probably make a good argument that this is the most emotional of the series. In a good way.

I think because him finding his happiness means more (a bit) than it does for the others. Getting into exactly why is a spoiler, but it's really what drew me to the story and to the characters.

As always, I liked the characters. They felt real and I understood the reasons they had for the things that they

I’ve enjoyed reading Carly Phillip’s work for many years now but she has leveled-up the last couple of years. She has always been spot-on with delivery and unfolding of storylines. As of late, I have felt like her stories have more passion and emotion that ever before. Even her short stories or quickies have been next level in this department. This story and the series have been next level passionate and emotional for me. Add in the unexpected turn of events in the plot and I was glued to my kin ...more

Landon has been missing something necessary in his life since his twin was killed years ago. But when he meets Vivi as he's offering her a summer residency at his club, the pieces suddenly click and that void left by his twin just may be filled. Now if only the truth of her identity were not something he (and his family) cannot get past.

OMG I felt for this lovely couple. They both deserved happiness so much, and for it to hinge on something that neither could control, neither could do anythi

Better than Sexy is the third book in Carly Phillips Sexy series and I have to be honest, it was the one I was most looking forward to. I couldn’t wait to see Landon get his HEA, plus I was totally intrigued with the heroine in this story ;)

The feels in this story...it was breaking my heart to be how much they were struggling to over come the pain that was their past. I teared up a few times because I couldn't stand the way they knew what that had was special but we're willing to let each other go.

But in true Carly Phillips fashion she made me a believer that even when life seems impossible to untangle, love always finds a way to make HEA happen. In case it's not clear - I absolutely LOVED it.

Better Than Sexy is one of those stories that just has it all. A complicated love story, amazing chemistry and also a story of friendship makes this book highly entertaining! Landon and Vivi’s story is loving and emotional with a few twists and turns that will keep you wanting more! Their ending is exactly what we needed and I highly suggest reading this entire series!

An instant attraction that because of a connection in the past can relive the worst memories and fragment the hearts.

Landon Bennet shared a passion for music with his twin brother Levi. After his brother's death, this passion is buried, but it allows him to detect a pure and natural talent when he sees it. This skill will guide him to Vivi Z, the singer who can help his club go back to Manhattan’s scene after the attacks by his number one enemy, Victor Clark. What he didn't expect was that, in a

The third book in the series and this was just as entertaining as the first two books. I love Carly Phillips style of writing, there is something about her stories, that draws me in and keeps me invested from the first to the last chapter.
 
I have anxiously been waiting for Landon Bennett’s story and it was well worth the wait, even if it is complicated love story. I knew that the woman who would bring him to his knees would

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the third book in the series. It gives Landon his chance at happiness, although it is not a smooth journey for him, and more than it was for Tanner or Jason who feature in the earlier books. The three of them run a bar named in honour of Landon's twin brother Levi, who died in a hazing event at college. They have never forgotten him, and recently the perpetrator caused them even more trouble at their bar.

Landon owns a popular club with his two best friends but after the recent turmoil they are looking for a way to attract new clientele and her name is Vivi. He has heard her sing and he knows that having her perform at the club will be good for business and good for her career as well. There is the added bonus that it will allow him to spend more time with her as he is very drawn to her, but he is confused when she turns him down.

Vivi knows that this would be an incredible opportunity for her pro

I have been waiting for Landon's book since we first met him in book one. While this is a part of a series it can be read as a standalone, however I think it will be much more enjoyable if read after the other two since there is interconnecting characters and you really get a feel for what these guys have been through and what the pain of losing Landon's twin has done to them. Vivi is connected to Landon but neither of them know that when he hires her to perform at their club. She quickly discov ...more

Better than Sexy is the third book in the Sexy series by Carly Phillips, but it's not the last book. There is a 1001 dark nights novella coming, but the main story is finished with this book. Our characters finally got the closure they wanted and I couldn't be happier for them.

As the blurb reveals, Vivi is the sister of the man who killed Levi, Landon's brother. Just from that little piece of information, you know that the book won't be as light-hearted as the others. Landon and Vivi's journey

This is such a fantastic book, I devoured it in a day. I was hooked from page one. I loved the instant heat between Landon and Vivi. Their first kiss was just so hot! But she has a secret and can’t really be involved with him. I had some tears on the piano scene, and loved how he goes after her. Can their relationship last? Will his parents understand? It’s a very heartwarming story, even though I felt heartbroken for them and did cry a couple of times. I absolutely loved their happy ever after. ...more

This book is so good and emotional. My heart was touched so much through this book. Hopefully you have been reading this series and know that Landon, Jason and Tanner own a club in Manhattan. I loved how Jason and Tanner found their true love in the last two books. Now it is Landon’s turn, but it is such a rocky path. Landon doesn’t think he will ever find someone who will make his heart full again after his twin’s death until he meets Vivi. I couldn’t imagine how Vivi felt when she had to hide ...more

In a world of never-ending twists and emotion, Phillips is forever managing to keep her readers craving more. Better than Sexy is the more that I've been waiting for. Landon and Vivienne are a heartache we all saw coming, but were helpless to look away from. Caught up in a tragedy more heartbreaking than either can possibly have known, will love and forgiveness allow these star-crossed lovers to heal? Or will secrets of the past prove to be their downfall? Expect the unexpected to be sealed with ...more

This one is the third book in the Sexy Series and I'm super excited because I knew this one will be more complicated.
The tragic past, the frustration, the hesitation, yup it is a complex story and totally enjoyed it cover to cover.
Kinda predictable though and I kinda loss the sparks between Landon and Vivi, they bring the steaminess alright but it just felt something is missing, still root for this couple though, but my fav couple is still Tanner and Scarlett in this series.

Landon and his friends own a nightclub. And when they decide to host a summer residency, they start looking for someone to sing there. Landon sees a clip on tv featuring ViVi singing and instantly wants her for the club. Little does he know how much they have in common and it’s not good. Excellent book. Loved it! Read it in one day! It is that good!
