He leaned so his forehead touched hers. “How is it I feel like I’ve been waiting forever when we really just met?”

A cute contemporary romance about a damsel in distress wearing a wedding dress, who is unable commit to either a person or a home because of the childhood she had, and a cop whose loyalty and kindness caused him his own demons to overcome.

Together they form an alliance. While she’s staying temporarily in his town she will pose as his fake girlfriend to shield him from all the hus

The story of the middle Chandler brother, Rick, the police officer, and Kendall, a woman without roots who thinks she's only passing through town.

Kendall has never had a stable environment, growing up passed from relative to relative while her archaeologist parents were on expeditions, with the only exception the time she spent with her aunt in Yorkshire Falls before she became too ill to care for her. She has just ended an engagement and has no firm plans for her future, only having the faint i

Loved this! The Playboy is the 2nd book in the Chandler Brothers series by Carly Phillips. I liked the first one okay, but this one was so much better. It would be near impossible to not fall in love with this family.

Kendall Sutton isn’t the typical runaway bride. Yet, here she is stranded in her broken down car, wearing a wedding dress and looking every bit the part. Could this be anymore embarrassing? I mean she’s not planning on staying forever, but she does need to get her aunts house on the

Let me start by saying that I didn't even finish this book, so take this review with that in mind.

I am an avid romance reader and one of the main reasons that I like to read this genre is because I enjoy watching a romance develop between two individuals. This book gives "quickie" and all new meaning.

The main two characters meet and fall in lust immediately. It only takes, what, ummmm 4 chapters and they are in the sack. Not my idea of romance. The idea that these 2 shallow individuals were ac
Me gusto más que el otro, sobre todo que me pareció que la historia si se desarrollo en el libro o si contaban bien porque cada personaje era como era, no como en el anterior que los tiempos no me cuadraron (solo salieron una noche y ya se amana pero sabían que no se podían tener... eso no me cuadro) pero estamos hablando de este libro

es entretenido como para pasar el tiempo,

This book is just absolutely horrible! HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!! Filled to the the brim with bad soap opera plots and tinny dialogue. Geez, I made a HUGE MISTAKE READING THIS ONE!

I'm reading this book because my aunt gave it to me as a Christmas present after I placed on my Christmas list, "10) YOUR favorite book." She laughed when I opened it, but I promised to read it, and now I am. I'm halfway through.

It's not a bad book; having never read a romance novel, it's definitely a different experience. I find myself alternating between wanting to really meet the characters (and steal the girl from the guy) and rolling my eyes at the really overdone expressions about what the

This is a fun and flirty read you will have fun with. Rick and Kendall are characters that you can relate to and want to get to know. Rick is the sexy town cop that is being hit on by every available single female. When Kendall drives into town in a wedding dress and pink hair he is intrigued, but wary of women in general. Kendall is in need of help to repair her late Aunt's home for sale. They make a bargain to help each other by pretending to have a relationship, that soon turns real. When Ken ...more

I have enjoyed many novels by Carly Phillips. This was not one of them. Perhaps the story was not as bad I thought, but the narrator of this audiobook, while having a very pleasant speaking voice, was simply atrocious at his attempts to adopt voices for the characters. It was very distracting. I read the first book in the series, The Bachelor, as a traditional book and enjoyed it far more.

Chandler Brother!

Rick is not the forever kind of guy or is he. Meeting Kendall was his downfall or his happily ever after! Kendall has never had a home or family but can she have both here. These two are so perfect for each other!
