Stealing Rose by Monica Murphy is live; it’s the second book in her Fowler Sisters series, though it can be read as a standalone. This was a huge 5 stars for me. An absolute must read!!
Perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Emma Chase—the second novel in New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy’s sizzling series about three powerhouse sisters and the men who would have their hearts.
People say the youngest child has it easy, but nothing can be further from the truth. Unlike my two sisters, Violet and Lily, I’m never in the limelight. I just work my butt off for Fleur Cosmetics and get little to no thanks for it. I’ve been pushed too far one too many times, and I’m finally brave enough to do something about it.
Maybe my newfound courage has something to do with the amazing pink and white diamond necklace I wear to the party in Cannes. The instant those dazzling heirloom jewels touch my skin, they excite some deep, aching need inside. And when that guy—that totally gorgeous guy—locks eyes with me, I know this nice girl is going to be naughty.
For once it’s my turn. My turn to say no to my father, to outshine my sisters, to walk away from it all—straight into the arms of a mysterious stranger. But what if Caden is much more than I bargained for? Sure, he makes me feel sexy and free in a way I never have before, but there’s something else I can’t quite place—something dangerous. Maybe our “chance” meeting wasn’t so random. Maybe he was looking for me for a reason. Whatever his motive, there’s no going back now.
And maybe I don’t want to.
I am completely and hopelessly in love. The first book in this series (Owning Violet) wasn’t for me, so I was a little nervous to pick up Stealing Rose, but I had absolutely nothing to worry about, because I don’t think it would be possible to love this book any more than I do. It was fantastic!!!
Right from the very start I was hooked, and I read the entire book in one sitting, which is practically unheard of for me these days. I just couldn’t bring myself to put this book down.
I loved the character of Rose, but the person who truly stole my heart was Caden. SWOOOOOON!!!! I need a Caden Kingsley in my life! I loved the twist to the story, that at one stage caused me anxiety because I just needed to know how it would all turn out! And the entire book as a whole, was just perfection to me. I loved it so much!!
Stealing Rose made me remember exactly why I fell in love with this author’s writing the very first time. Without a doubt, Monica Murphy’s strongest work to date since One Week Girlfriend. You NEED to read it.
