    This is emotional, sweet and tender story with characters that have big hearts, know their flaws and offer unconditional love and support. A laugh, a sigh, a tear and then breathless…another great read from Carly Phillips.
  • She’s got major trust issues!

    This is book 5 in The Kingston Family series and it features Nick Dare and Aurora Kingston. Six years ago they had a one night stand, with no last names, mutually agreed. He regrets not getting to know more about her. He can’t believe his luck when he sees her at his brother’s movie premiere. This is his second chance. He had no idea she was a Kingston and that she had a daughter. When he knocks on her door, he never expects to see his own eyes staring back at him. This is a fantastic, steamy, second chance romance with amazing characters! I love Nick’s character growth. Who can resist cute little 5 year old Leah! I love that Aurora still lives more on the frugal side instead of someone with a ton of money, which she has. I always look forward to visiting the Kingston family and the Dare families.

    A second chance romance Carly Phillips style, a little sassy and a lot spicy! Aurora’s life has been anything but easy, even though all the changes in the last few years have been positive. She relies on routine and organization to feel in control and wants her daughter to feel loved every day. Nick has grown up with the privilege of money and a mostly blessed family. The one thing that’s missing is someone to share his life with. A chance meeting puts Aurora and Nick together after a one night encounter six years earlier. Little did they know how it would change their life now. Patience, perseverance, and sizzling chemistry help to bring their family together.

    Carly Phillips never fails to give us a book with everything! The heat, laughs, tears and joy can all be found within this book. Aurora and Nick could have been the typical star-crossed lovers, but thankfully that wasn’t the case. If you’re familiar with Ms. Phillips other books you’ll see some familiar faces/names with the Dare family.
  • One night, no last names …

    I've been waiting, it seems for forever, for Aurora's story. Then to have it be a crossover novel with the new Dare series, BONUS. I love the Dare's and have enjoyed the Kingston's. I was looking forward to knowing what happened with Leah's daddy. Quite the story. I think one of the things I enjoyed most and wish I had seen more of, was Aurora's charity. It is such a great idea and I was so glad she was able to accomplish that. Now back to Aurora and Nick. They are actually a good couple. She feels more comfortable with him than anyone else and she is able to open up about her childhood and how she feels about it and her fears that stem from it. Nick is understanding and compassionate, and a freaking God with his patience. But the best part was when Melly sat Aurora down and point blank told her to imagine her life with Nick as just Leah's dad. Could she live with that? Probably the best thing that she could have done.

    Out of all of the Kingston family, I was most anxious to read Aurora’s story. It was all that I hoped it would be. It’s no wonder that she had issues regarding family and abandonment, given who her birth parents were. But, the rest of family made up for it. I liked that Nick was pretty perceptive about how to approach and deal with those issues. And it didn’t hurt to have a little spitfire like Leah to change his life! This was an enjoyable read that exceeded my expectations!
