Well Built - Carly Phillips,Erika Wilde

Kyle Coleman and Ella Fisher were high school sweethearts until one fateful night when their siblings caused their world to come crashing down.  Kyle left Woodmont, IL ten years ago, broke and determined to make something of himself.  Now living in Chicago, Kyle is a part owner of Premier Realty with his 3 best friends, and a successful multimillionaire.

After that fateful night, Ella dropped her dreams of college and took over running the family grocery store since her father was unable to.  Now that the old building next door to the grocery story has finally gone up for sale, Ella has plans of buying that building and expanding the family store.  Imagine Ella's surprise at the bidding sale when someone else also makes a bid on the building....none other than Kyle Coleman...the guy she still has never gotten over.  She may have recently broken off an engagement to another guy, but her heart has always been with Kyle.  Kyle knows he is crushing Ella's dreams, but he has plans of his own....he want to fulfill his mom's dream of owning a bakery and an event center.

In the beginning there was some fun sparring between these two.  It was obvious that the chemistry between these two was still strong.  When Ella tries to convince Kyle that he should sell her the building that is when the fun begins!  Car trouble, stuck in Chicago, Kyle's place....etc....it didn't take long for these two to give in to their feelings.  Afterwards, Ella lets Kyle know that their hookup has to be a one time thing because her father couldn't handle her being with a "Coleman boy" and she couldn't risk his health any more.  Of course this doesn't last long and soon they are sneaking around like they did back in high school.  Eventually problems arise and all hell breaks loose.  It takes some long and hard soul searching for these two to finally make it back to their happy ending, but they finally do.

I just adore these characters.  Kyle was just a perfect dream man...exactly what someone would want in a guy.  Ella had a hard time standing up to her dad because she was always the "good" daughter and this caused her to really end up putting her life on pause.  Once she stood up for herself you just wanted to tell her...way to go Ella!  Overall this was a great, second chance story of two characters who never really gave up the thought of the other, even 10 years later.

Well Built
Well Built - Carly Phillips,Erika Wilde Erika Wilde and Carly Phillips are an explosive combination. With Erika's spicy dialogue and Carly's blend of complication and emotion, Ella and Kyle set fire to the pages. Kyle creates his own brand of smooth from brash antics to suave words, he has the moves to make a woman forget herself. Ella is the spark that lights him up. She's a good girl that knows how to work her inner bad girl. Well Built gives a well written nod to the seductive while going for broke with some sweet romance. When greatness is expected, it's no surprise when it's delivered.

4 Carly Phillips Books--Lucky Break, Sum... 4 Carly Phillips Books--Lucky Break, Summer Lovin', Hot Number, - Carly Phillips

It sure has been fun, re-reading these older books of Carly Phillips.  I had forgotten how crazy and funny the Costas clan was!

This is the second book in the Costas Sisters series and Zoe Costas' story.  Having recently left the Secret Service, Zoe has now started up a security specialist company along with Quinn and Connor.  She is also living at her parents home since they now are fostering Sam, with the hopes of adopting her.  When a strange guy shows up at Sam's party, they all assume he is the temporary social worker on Sam's case but in reality he is actually Sam's Uncle Ryan.  When Zoe finds out that Ryan is not a social worker, she calls him on it and he tells her that he is Sam's uncle.  Both of them decide not to let the family know who Ryan really is until they get to know more about each other....which neither of them seem to mind because there is definite chemistry going on there!  It is pretty funny how completely opposite these two are!

When someone is threatening Sam, Zoe and Ryan work together to try and figure out what is going on and end up taking Sam to Boston where Ryan's family lives.  The Baldwin's way of life is night and day different from the Costas way of life.  This was such a fun comparison!  While working together, things are definitely heating up between Zoe and Ryan and have both of them feeling things that they have never felt before.  The mystery behind the threats was fun and entertaining.  I really enjoyed how everything played out in the end and really loved Zoe and Ryan's happy ending.  

Overall, this was a fun and entertaining story with some great, colorful characters!

Great ending to series
Lucky Break - Carly Phillips

Jason and Lauren are great together. This a forbidden and reunion love story. You get to remeet Lauren from the first book in this series and she is stron and you can't help but root for her. This series is great and in the wonderful Carly Phillips way you get to see glimpses of all the characters from the other books so you get to keep up with everyone. This was a great series and I am glad that I could read this old series that was redone and rereleased.

Lucky Break - Carly Phillips

The third story is Jason Corwin and Lauren Perkin's story.  That's right...a Corwin and a Perkin's together!!!!

Jason Corwin's life is falling apart.  He was training for the Olympics in snowboarding when he failed his drug test.  Jason had never taken drugs and realized he was set up by the girl he was dating.  Turns out she was actually with Jason's biggest competition and they set him up.  Now back in Stewart, MA, Jason opened up his own construction company and trying to stay out of the limelight.  

Lauren Perkin's is in town to fix up her Aunt Mary's house to sell it and then she's off to Paris because her designs are finally being shown on the runway!  She is also trying to help her sister, Beth, who is in a psych ward because of the fire she created last year.  The last thing she wants is to run into Jason.  She hasn't seen him since they were teenagers and had shared a wonderful summer together up until her Aunt sent her away....but it would be fun to see him from a distance.

When Clara, Uncle Edward's girlfriend reads Jason's tarot cards, she tells him that a lady with a red mask is going to rock his world.  Imagine his surprise when he sees Lauren Perkins' at the fall festival, in a red mask!  When Lauren approaches him, she doesn't tell him who she is and he plays along.  I loved when they snuck off together to the barn.....that was fun.  

When Jason helps his cause to be the person to fix up her Aunt's house, Lauren isn't happy but finally accepts...with the promise that it is all business.  Of course that didn't last too long! ;)  As they work on the house, strange things keep happening causing Lauren to need Jason even more.  Together Lauren and Jason work to figure out who is causing all of their problems and end up with a big surprise.  I enjoyed the way these two worked through their problems to finally get to their happy ending.  I loved what happened regarding the curse too!  Overall it made for a fun, crazy, suspenseful story.
