My first Carly Phillips and I hope I can read something a little bit more upbeat next time.

Cute little story. Somewhat light read, but I needed that right now. Sop far Carly Phillips has yet to disappoint.

Characters were pretty likable. Heroine was a tad annoying at times but overall she was bearable. The resolution of the story was a little too easy, but it like I said it was a light read so I expected this.

One word... boring. From the beginning, it failed to grab my interest. The pace was too slow, the dialogs were juvenile and not much of a story, really. Towards the end, I just skimmed through and didn't really care about the outcome of the characters.
But the sex scene was HOT though.

I really enjoyed Kiss Me If You Can. I loved the whole mystery behind the ring and how everything unfolded and then came together in the end. The romance was a good balance of sweet, smexy and fun with just enough angst to keep things interesting and was filled with characters that kept me turning the pages to see what they’d get into next.

I loved Lexie. She’s intelligent, honest, upfront, has a tendency to act before thinking when her emotions go all wonky, but has a really good

I loved this book. Nothing is better than reading a book from one of your favorite authors and discovering that she has adding something different in it for you. Kiss Me If You Can is a Romantic Mystery. I was not expecting the mystery and I really liked that in this book.

Sam "Coop" Cooper is a crime reporter who was in the right place at the right time to foil a robbery of a jewelry store and his reward is any ring in the store. He selects a gawdy antique ring that just happens to have a story behind it. With the ring comes countless proposals from single women but he is not interested in any of them. No, he has his eye set on Lexie Davis, the woman who really wants the ring because it once belonged to her grandmother. This story comes with lots of sexy banter, ...more

Cute story about Coop and Lexus chasing down the history of a ring he get as a reward for thwarting a robbery attempt. Cute characters and I liked the book, it just didn't have that powerful, suck you in feeling. It was a fun read overall though.

Sam Cooper ("Coop") has just become the most eligible bachelor in New York City. Now that he has foiled a jewelry-store robbery and has been rewarded with the ring of his choice, single women all over the city are fawning over the crime reporter. But Coop isn't interested in the admirers sending racy underwear his way. His attention is centered solely on Lexie Davis, the only woman in the city who claims not to be interested in his bachelor status.
Instead, free-spirited Lexie is interested in Co

A couple of characters with a bit of depth and background to them, decently written dialog, a bit of mystery, and nobody who is TSTL. Combine those ingredients and what do you get? A decently written light contemporary romance that earns 3.75 stars from me. Well into the 'Really Liked It' range.

Coop is the crime beat newspaper reporter who is a bit of a homebody. Lexi is the world traveler with daddy issues. And yet they somehow manage to work it out in the end.

I liked this book at the beginng, then it got a little irritiating. I didn't like the grandmother at all, she was manipulative and unremorseful. Lexie and Coop's miscommunications and hang-ups were too exaggerated to be believable. In fact the whole "poor, misunderstood Lexie, so different than her family" was just lame.

3.5 stars. Cute but mindless, sexy story about Lexie Davis falling for the gorgeous crime beat journalist, Sam "Coop" Cooper. Very light reading, with a slightly annoying heroine and a smoking hot hero falling in and out of bed.

First sexy playaway that I've listened to and I find listening to sex was more awkward than reading it, because there was no way to skim over it and it seemed more personal. But this is too fluffy a series to actually read, so I will listen to the next book too, but it d

I forgot what a fun story this was....it has such great laugh out loud moments in it mostly from the heroine's grandma....and such great swoony moments from the hero, Sam "Coop" Cooper.

Sam Cooper tried to be a cop like his father and older brother but because of an old injury he wasn't successful. Instead, Coop is a crime reporter for The Daily Post in New York City. It pays the bills but he would prefer to be a successful author. When Coop is able to stop a robbery at a local jewelry story, he

Another great throw back from Carly Phillips! This is one of my favorite books that I have re-read this summer, it is always fun to go back and find old characters again.

In Kiss Me If You Can, crime reporter Sam Cooper is in the right place at the right time, and stops a theft at a jewelry store. For his bravery, the owner lets him pick anything he wants from the store as a reward. Sam doesn't know that what he thought was a cheap, gaudy ring, turns out to be something else all together!

The woman is so grateful she offers him a reward at first he doesn't want to take it but a local reporter sees this and gets its all on camera so Coop takes a ring.

This was a great book. At first I wasn’t sure if the story line was something I would enjoy but because I love this author I went ahead and read it. I was pleasantly surprised that I did enjoy this story line. It was something new to me but still had the love connection that I crave.

Grandma Charlotte was funny as heck. She was awesome in this book. I love characters that can make me laugh.

Overall, this book was really good and I really enjoyed it.

I always love it when Carly Phillips re-releases a series. It gives me the chance to re read and fall in love all over again. I love Lexie and Coop's story. Little bit of mystery, drama and a whole lot of sexiness! Their chemistry is undeniable from the moment they meet and the ride that Carly takes us on from the first page to the last is a great one! Highly recommend this one!

This book had a bit of a rushed ending but it also definitely became one of my favourite reads throughout the story. Several different stories intertwined together making it an interesting read nonetheless. I wish this story had more pages though because I definitely want to read into the future of Coop's and Lexie's story! The suspense of this book has moved me into the second and final book in this series however. Win-Win!

This book was a nice change from many of the books I've read lately. There is still the romance and steamy encounters, but the storyline was something new and fun to follow with its twists and turns. The mystery behind the ring captured my attention and kept it through the end. And the secondary characters of Charlotte and Sylvia were so much fun. Can't wait to start book 2 in this series.

Sam Cooper is a crime reporter and hopeful mystery writer and has become the next newest victim of the Bachelor Blog. Lexie is a web designer interested in purchasing the ring Sam was given for her grandmother. Lexie’s Grandmother and her friends are up to something and I love their antics. Soon it is discovered that the ring is stolen property. The twists in this story made it a fun book to read.

A hot bachelor. A unique and caring woman. And a mystery to solve. How could I not want to read it? I delved in expecting a typical contemporary romance, but I got so much more. This was a rare instance when I found myself loving the secondary characters even more than the two main characters. I could easily see myself becoming best friends with Grandma. I have a few suspicions on who might be writing the Bachelor Blog as well, and hope I find out for sure in future books.

This was a cute story filled with stolen jewelry, hot bachelor blog and a grandmother who used to be a thief. Even through the twists and turns, Coop and Lexie find love and acceptance. Overcoming the need to run and learning to stop concentrating on your past failures made this book a great read.
