This book popped my Carly Phillips cherry. Haha! I was so looking forward to reading this story as the blurb totally hooked me from start to finish.

Sebastian Knight… sigh. Even his name conjures up naughty thoughts. Tall, handsome and a ladies man although I will say it’s totally reciprocated. Women love him too. Sebastian doesn’t have a little black book. You will find his list programmed into his phone. Ah…technology!

Ashley Easton is witty and vivacious and fiercely independent. Losing her father at an early age and a mother who went from one husband to another made her that way. Her mother married into the Knight family if only for a short while. It gave her siblings and somewhere she could call home and the feeling like she belonged.

When Sebastian and Ashley first met as teenagers, there was an instant attraction. An attraction that would eventually break them apart. Being sent away as punishment and let down by Sebastian sent Ashley to the other side of the world, where she stayed until a Knight family tragedy called her home.

Over the years, Sebastian had become one of those guys that didn’t want to peruse a relationship, he just wanted to have fun with no complications or commitment. That was until he came face to face with Ashley again.

The feeling wasn’t mutual. She hated him with a passion. She blamed him for the part he had played in her being sent away. She may hate him, but that didn’t stop the feelings or the attraction she still felt towards him when she saw him again. Family business would mean that they would be working in close proximity to each other. Would this playboy be able to keep his hands to himself or would they both succumb to the passion that was brewing between them? Would this second chance romance be the second chance that everyone is hoping for?

This was a quick and easy read. The story flowed well and the characters were likable. A sweet second chance love story, I can’t wait to read more from Carly Phillips.


Though she and Sebastian had been sharing a suite in California, the fact was, they lived in separate apartments in New York. No matter what she felt for him, London, her job, and her life awaited her. The sooner they got used to being apart the better.“I’m tired,” she said. “I didn’t rest much on the flight, and we have to be up early tomorrow to meet with Ethan.”His grin turned into a frown. “Why do I get the feeling you’re pulling away?”

She rubbed her hands over her arms and turned away, not wanting to face him. It was one thing to pull back, another to look him in the eye while doing it. Not when all she really wanted to do was throw herself into his arms. But she lived in reality. So here they were.

“Hey.” He grasped her and turned her around. “I have a question for you.”

“Okay…” she said warily.

“Why are you still here?”

“What?” She hadn’t anticipated that question.

“Why are you still here, in New York? You said you came for Ethan, but when he sent you away, you came with me. And now we’ve wrapped things up. We’re talking to Ethan in the morning. Is your flight home booked?” As he spoke, his hands on her forearms felt like a brand, a reminder that she belonged here, with him.

And she couldn’t let that sway her. Although she’d put work out of her mind, she had checked in with her bosses while she was away, assured them she was returning. She’d bought herself another week, that was it. They understood her leave of absence but wanted her back as soon as possible.

“I’ll take your silence to be a no,” Sebastian said, releasing her arms. “Which brings me back to why? Do you still want to be here? Or are you avoiding Mr. Perfectly Nice?”

She didn’t want to talk about any of this. She still had a week left, and in that time, Ethan would need her once he found out about Mandy’s cheating. Or was that just an excuse? Because she wasn’t ready to leave Sebastian, her conscience asked her.

She glared at him. “Why are you pushing me so hard just because I said I was tired?” she asked, more annoyed with herself but taking it out on him.

“Because of what we shared in California. Because of what we feel for each other, even if you’re not ready to admit it. And because I want to know.”
