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.

Oh my goodness Monica Murphy has done it again. I totally fell in love with her One Week Girlfriend series and was so stoked for her new one. It totally didn’t disappoint.
Rose is the youngest of the Fowler sisters and she feels lost. She is not sure that she wants to be a part of the Fowler cosmetics company anymore. Her family is driving her nuts and she just wants out. She meets a mysterious stranger that sets her world afire.
Caden has had a rough life, going through something no child should ever have had to. His life turned to crime because of the circumstances. He never felt comfortable about what he did but he was really such a good guy. And mega hot. He was a total sweet talker and so swoony.
The plot device that Monica uses is actually one of my favorites ever. I won’t spoil it at all because it was totally amazing. Her writing is addicting as always. And let me tell you, this is the steamiest read of hers yet. I was fanning myself the whole time! If you haven’t read a Monica Murphy book yet, seriously get on that. :)
I can’t wait to read the wild Fowler sister, Lily’s, book. The synopsis sounds promising, as always!
Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: The scent of him – citrusy and clean – washes over me and I part my lips, the protest dying when he reaches out and touches my cheek. His touch is gentle, his fingertips rough as they slide across my skin, into my hair. My eyelids waver and my vision grows fuzzy when he presses his body to mine and dips his head, his mouth hovering above mine.
