Excerpt

“Are you my guardian?” she quipped, trying to keep things light as she tipped her head slightly, studying his tight, serious expression. “I want to be.” His voice was serious as hell. His tone rubbed her in the most intimate way, her body swaying toward him. “Jake.” He reached out a hand to cup her face, his calloused fingertips rough against her skin. So intense were his features, so erotic was his touch, his protectiveness cloaking her in heat. Her nipples even puckered into tight points of need. “If I had my way, nobody would be able to take advantage of you, because they’d have to go through me in order to get to you.” Her face warmed at his words. “That’s sweet of you to say.” “I’m not feeling very sweet. In fact, I’m feeling pretty damned protective.” He was, and she liked it. A lot. His fingers skimmed her cheek as he spoke. “I was lucky enough to find you again. I want a chance to see what could be between us,” he said, taking her off guard. But God, she wanted that, too. Despite her brain telling her they needed to tread carefully, that they had a little boy to protect, her traitorous heart still wanted more. His blue gaze bored into hers, causing her heart to pound hard in her chest. “I know things are complicated right now, but how many people get second chances?” “Not many,” she agreed, knowing how lucky they were. “So wouldn’t we be foolish to waste the opportunity?” Breathe-AN.jpg

My Review
5 Stars
BREATHE by Carly Phillips is book Two in the Rosewood Bay Series. This is the story of Jake Nichols and Phoebe Ward. I haven't yet read the previous book, so for me this was a standalone book.
Jake and Phoebe had met in a foster care and fell in love...but they were just teenagers. They were caught and Jake was sent away and by then Phoebe Aunt found her.
Years later they happen to meet again where we learn Jake is divorced with a daughter named Callie. Phoebe fell pregnant at 16 by Jake and had a son named Jamie . Jake never knew she was pregnant wh

Breathe - Carly Phillips

This is the 2nd book in the Rosewood Bay series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Phoebe is shocked to see Jake on a work site she has been asked to check up on.  She had no idea that he would be there.  Not prepared to find out he has another child, she is wondering how to talk to him about hers.

 

Jake has had an incredibly stressful life.  From one painful past, to the struggling for a foothold future, he is just trying to make it all work.  He is blown away when Phoebe walks in the door of his current project.

 

This series just gets better.  I love the sexy heat that surrounds this couple.  The second chance trope has always been a favorite.  I found myself screaming at the characters almost right at the beginning.  This was a great read.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

TEMPT ME by Carly Phillips

BLOG TOURTempt Me, a sexy new standalone from Carly Phillips is available now!CPTemptMeCover5x8_MEDIUM

Tempt Me by Carly Phillips

Genre: Contemporary Romance Publication Date: January 16th

The single dad & the nanny ...
Burned by an ex with a wandering eye, Austin Rhodes has sworn off women. His sole focus is his young daughter - and despite his good intentions, the little girl's live-in nanny. He hired Mia Atwood to care for his child but he finds himself lusting after her instead. Keeping his distance isn’t easy but he’s determined to be a gentleman. Until Mia's past comes back to haunt her and she’s in need of Austin’s brand of protection. Suddenly she’s his in every sense of the word — and he’ll do whatever it takes to shield the woman who tempts him beyond reason.

Excerpt:

“So what’s your end game?” ”She paused, lowering the cup from her lips. “You’ll laugh. Or at the very least you won’t think it’s overly ambitious.” He ignored his coffee, more interested in the fascinating woman sitting beside him. “Try me.” “Someday I’d like a family of my own. A lot of kids not all mine. Kids who’ve been in foster care too long and never adopted because everyone wants babies.”She rubbed her cup between her palms, not meeting his gaze. “See? Nothing all that enterprising, like becoming a teacher or succeeding in business.” He couldn’t stop staring, enthralled not just by her beauty but by her heart. “I think it’s inspiring, what you want to do.”And the man by her side when she fulfilled her dreams would be one lucky SOB. “Not for me, because been there, done that…the family and marriage thing, but I’m sure it can work for the right couple.”He shrugged, realizing he’d admitted way too much. “I hope you find what you’re looking for,”he said, meaning it. She glanced down, her gaze sweeping over her watch on her wrist. “Oh! It’s time to pick up Bailey.”She crumbled the napkin beside her and picked up her cup as she rose to her feet. He stood, joining her as they tossed their half-finished drinks in the trash. They headed to the car and he beat her there, opening the passenger door before she could grab the handle herself. He turned back and she stopped short. He caught her before she bumped into him, grasping her around the waist and pulling her close. She sucked in a surprised breath but didn’t back away, her face inches from his. Her mouth so damned close. He knew better, he really did but he was tired of denying himself what he wanted and his body was definitely on board. He waited for a sign she wasn’t right there with him. If she pulled back or jerked away, he’d apologize and they’d move forward from there. Instead she swayed toward him, sealing her fate. He grasped her waist, anchoring himself by touching her, the soft sweater doing little to hide her slender body or delicate curves. He tipped his head, sliding his tongue across her lips and with a soft moan, she parted her mouth and let him inside. She tasted of vanilla and coffee, a sweet flavor that was all Mia. Their tongues touched, tangled, and his body came alive with a hunger he hadn’t known before. She raised her arms, hands coming to his biceps, holding on for a brief second before she gave in and wrapped her arms around him, pulling him close, giving him all the excuse he needed to deepen the kiss. He tilted his head and consumed her, swirling his tongue around the further recesses of her mouth. He had no wall, no car door to push her against, which was a good thing because he wouldn’t have been able to control himself if he crushed his body against hers. TemptMe-AN
