Stealing Rose by Monica Murphy - Review

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.

Sav's Review

This is book two in the Fowler sisters series *Note you do not NEED to read book one to read this one but I'd highly suggest it* This is the story of Rose and Caden.

Both characters are not at all happy with the way their lives are turning out. They both want something different, better even. Then comes the night they meet. They are explosive together. Monica does a great job with making you fall in love with these characters but that's where my issue is, sometimes I felt as though the sexy times may have been a bit much. I absolutely loved the story but would have better enjoyed it had it contained more story and less sexy times. This is totally just a personal preference so please don't let my thoughts sway you. The story is great and the characters are even better. 

The angst was definitely there, Monica did not hold back and I was constantly wondering if Caden was in fact going to make me hate him or if he was going to actually change to be a better man. I think many will enjoy this story and fall in love with these characters. I know I did. I give this book 3 1/2- 4 Stars
