Kiss Me If You Can

Available 27 July 2010
Sam Cooper (“Coop”) has just become the most eligible bachelor in NYC. Now that he has foiled a jewelry-store robbery and has been rewarded with the ring of his choice, single women all over the city are fawning over the crime reporter. But Coop isn’t interested in the admirers sending racy underwear his way. His attention is centered solely on Lexie Davis, the only woman in the city who claims not to be interested.
Instead, free-spirited Lexie is interested in Coop’s antique ring, and its-potentially scandalous-history in her family. But Coop is quickly becoming more than just her route to the ring. When his investigation starts to uncover the truth, will she trust her heart-and her family secrets-to this most eligible bachelor.
This Blonde’s Review:
I Love Carly Phillips books. The characters in this one were just wonderful. Of course they are going to be very attractive people (as the cover shows that male model is Hot!), but neither of them are full of themselves. In fact they both have their own issues that they bring to the relationship. These issues work at cross-purposes to keep them apart if they let them. Coop and Lexie have to investigate the history of the ring they find yet another obstacle to their path. Lexie’s grandmother Charlotte is a wonderful secondary character, you can’t help but love her antics. Coop’s police officer friend Sara is wonderful and a pefect way to showcase what a great guy Coop is. You can judge a man by the loyalty of his friends, and her loyalty shows Coop is a catch.
I loved the way Carly worked the characters baggage in with their search for the history of the ring. She wrote this book in such a way that you were cheering for everyone and hoped for the best ending, then she delivered. I look forward to reading the second in her new Most Eligible Bachelor series about Coop’s friend Sara and her partner. If only I didn’t have to wait so long!
If you enjoy books with imperfect characters with good hearts then you will want to read this book. Carly Phillips fans can pick this up without worry, she has held true to her name and given us another fabulous story.
