Cute Book
Cinderella and the Geek (British Bad Boys) - Christina Phillips

Alice finally has enough saved up to go to college. Her problem is that she’s crazy about one of her bosses, Harry. Harry is a total geek and oblivious to Alice’s feelings towards him. However, the thought of not having her in the office every day has him in a panic.

This was a cute and fairly straight-forward story. The title was especially fitting. I’m not sure why it’s in a bad-boy series since Harry isn’t what one would call a bad boy. I’d enjoy reading more from this author.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Nobody's Baby But Mine
Nobody's Baby but Mine - Susan Elizabeth Phillips
A friend lent me this book and I needed a book with a baby on the cover for Ripped Bodice Bingo. I'm using this shitty book for that square! And here's why I thought it was a shitty book: rant ahead. And maybe a little spoilery. And maybe a little cussing. You've been warned.

So, Jane. Jane is a GENIUS and DESPERATELY wants a baby. So does she do what a NORMAL person would do? Fuck no! Why would one use a sperm bank (don't cha know that medical students are notorious for sperm donation?!) when one could trick an unsuspecting guy instead?! Now, granted, she doesn't get pregnant the first time when she sabotaged a condom. No, that happens the second time when they have unprotected sex. But, see it's okay becomes she didn't enjoy herself. Amiright? 
The whole "I'm super smart and it was hard for me growing up, so I want a less intelligent baby! So, I'm going to pick a football player because they all lack intelligence!" just pissed me off. Judgmental much? She's such an idiot. 
On the other side, Cal. I really didn't like him either. "...why should he chose a desperate 30 year old..." Yeah, he is 36. Anyone over 24 is "too old." FUCK YOU ASSHOLE!! I thought he was mean, spiteful, ageist. Granted, he had every right to be pissed, but he took it too far.
I could not forgive (or forget) anything that they did.  Much less like them or even want these 2 toxic people to be together.  What she did was mortally and ethically wrong. 
The best parts of this book were Lynn, Annie, and Jim.
This just hit a lot of my hates. It definitely feels like I didn't read the same book that so many others read (and loved).

Surprise
Freed - Carly Phillips

This is the 3rd book in the Rosewood Bay series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment & understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Juliette comes to Rosewood Bay to meet the sisters she never knew she had.  She meets Braden right away and they click immediately.  The attraction burns bright on both sides.

 

Braden is tasked to keep tabs on Juliette, and he has no idea how to tell her.  Her father and her past is quickly going to ruin the great start they have.  Braden must convince Juliette that they have a future and its worth it.

 

This was a sexy sweet combo in one book.  A great addition to this series, the story starts with serious heat that just burns all throughout the book.  I loved the banter and the very real subject matters.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Freed - Carly Phillips

Freed is the third book in the Rosewood Bay series and we finally get to meet the unknown sister, Juliette Collins. Phoebe and Halley Ward knew they had a younger sister but have not been able to find her ever since Juliette's dad took her away. What they didn't know was that she was living a very privileged and sheltered life in New York City. When Juliette finds out she has half sisters and that her dad kept that news from her she is livid. Juliette then decides she is taking her own life into her own hands and travels to Rosewood Bay to get to know her sisters.

What Juliette didn't expect was that Phoebe and Halley are wonderful people and she is so excited to be a part of their lives. Juliette also didn't expect to find a man that she is strongly attracted to, but Braden Clark becomes that man. Too bad Juliette doesn't know that her dad hired Braden to watch over her. While things heat up between him and Juliette, Braden starts to feel guilty about working for her dad. As Braden helps Juliette navigate taking control of her own life, he is quickly fall hard for her and she for him. What seems like a perfect relationship quickly turns into something horrible when Juliette's dad shows up. It takes an act of faith, and some family love for these two to get to their happy ending.

I liked Juliette. Even though she was sheltered her whole life, she still had the will to take control back and it was fun seeing her do many things that others do younger in life. I really loved Braden. He was so sweet and loving and yet sexy at the same time. I really loved how he was with his dad too! Such a hard story line, but he dealt with it the best way he could. I also loved the little sneak peak at Andi's story! I can't wait to read it!

Another great addition to a great series

 

Carly Phillips did not disappoint with this story or this stand alone series. This is the third installment of the Rosewood bay series. Juliette is the long lost sister of Phoebe and Halley.  The sisters have been looking for Juliette but Juliette did not know she had sisters until she found a PI report about them. She decided to go find ain’t about them on her own.  When Juliette meets Braden Clark and they become fast friends but there is a spark between them, little does she know he was hired by her father to keep an eye on her.  Can they work through their differences once Juliette finds out.  Also will the sisters be able to have a relationship.  This is a wonderful read I could not put down.
