Fall in love with the Wards…
Mechanic and garage owner, Kane Harmon is used to the wealthy beautiful women visiting his beach town. He doesn't get involved because he knows most females would merely be slumming for the summer.
Except Halley Ward isn't just passing through. She lives a solitary life in a bungalow on the beach. A woman tormented by her past, distant from her wealthy family, different from Kane's usual fare of town girls who know his M.O.- Don't expect more than he's willing to give.
Kane rescues Halley and her broken down car from the side of the road and instantly he's hooked. She says she's not interested in him. He knows she lies. And he makes it his mission to bring her back to life, to return her emotionally to her family. To show her the colors around her were as vibrant as the ones she puts on her canvas.
Until past meets present and threatens all the progress they've made. Then it's Halley's turn to step up and stand up for the relationship and life she's finally coming to believe she deserves.
Sweet quick romance
I enjoyed this book. It was a somewhat quick read. This is the first book in a new series. Halley and Kane knew one another in HS, but more as acquaintances. A chance meeting years later when her car breaks down, gives Kane the chance to try for more. Halley is private and withdrawn. She doesn’t think she is strong enough to be in a relationship. But Kane digs in to try to prove her wrong. He stays strong, supportive and takes things slow. They have some bumps and issues along they way, but they finally get their HEA.
Sweet quick read!
Fearless kicks off a new series and I really enjoyed it. It was a fun, quick read that had just the right balance of humor, drama and smexyness to keep me turning the pages and intriguing characters that have me wanting the next book in the series right now!
I really liked Kane. He keeps an eye on his sister, nephew and father and runs the family business aka he is extremely responsible. He has a good soul and when he see’s something worthwhile, he’ll do what needs to be done to get it. Past experiences have made him view certain things in a less than stellar light, but he does his best to not make a final decision on anything until he has all the information.
Hayley. This woman. My heart bled for her and all that she had been through and yet, I really wanted to reach through my Kindle and shake some sense into her, or at least give her a not so gentle push in a direction where she could start to truly work through the demons of her past, because when she let go and forgot to keep people at arms length, she was a lot of fun and had so much to give others.
Kane and Hayley’s journey was all kinds of sweet and swoon worthy. I loved how Kane slipped under Hayley’s defenses. It was definitely sneaky, but done in such a way that showed how well he saw her. They definitely had their smexy moments and I loved them together. A huge pothole does appear in their journey and I’ll just say I was Team Kane the entire time, but everything worked out well and I really like where they are at when the book ends.
I really enjoyed Fearless and I finished it in no time flat. It was engaging and though there were some heavy issues brought up in it, they were handled very well. The supporting cast of characters were all well written and though I don’t have a clear favorite, I am definitely looking forward to Phoebe’s book, Breathe, and seeing how her own HEA plays out!

He made her fearless if she only saw it!
I absolutely love this author. She is a one-click author for me. This book is further proof of her talent. Carly Phillips grabs you on the first page and then you can't put the book down. The characters feel so real that you want to know what happened to them to shape them and then you want to follow their story to see if they get a happy ending. Our hero is a hot mechanic named Kane. He's got a gambling addict for a father that he won't give up on and a single mother for a sister that he's close to. A nice guy who is sexy, owns his own business, has integrity.... he's our H. Our h is Halley, an artist, part of a local wealthy family, who unfortunately grew up in the foster system because her mother was a junkie. Halley has trust issues. Kane has fallen for Halley. But he knows he can't move fast. He also has family issues with his gambling dad who steals money. So our potential couple has a lot of roadblocks to get around and obstacles to overcome. Will they or won't they? Read the book. Totally captivating.
