“I enjoyed going on this ride with them!” ~Under the Covers
The town of Serendipity is always one of my favorite to read! I was always a fan of Sam, but when we got the hint of who his heroine would be in the last book I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it. Being that she is the sister of the girl that causes so much havoc in the previous book and in Cole’s life. I have to say Carly Phillips pulled this one off perfectly!
Sam has commitment issues after his ex fiance left him standing at the altar and ran off with his best friend. He can’t trust easily and is not interested in a real long term relationship. He doesn’t even date all that much. But ever since he met Nicole when she came to her sister’s “rescue” he’s been fascinated. But then she left town and went back to Manhattan so he didn’t think anything would come of that lust.
Nicole has her own issues and she decides to leave her life of privilege back in Manhattan and move to Serendipity to start fresh. And giving in to her chemistry with Sam is one of those steps.
Speaking of chemistry, I loved Sam and Nicole together. They were cute and comfortable around each other. Yes, there’s the hot factor too, but the ease they felt when they were together was a pleasure to read. Their relationship developed at a normal pace and I enjoyed going on this ride with them!
I also loved the side story with Macy and Tyler!! There were times when I kept wanting their scenes to go on longer.
Even though I can’t say Sam is my favorite brother, this book was just perfect for him!

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
