wow! such a different story. Kane is such a nice, respectable man who is so gentle and patient with Halley. he was honest with her from the start. I understand why Halley wanted a relationship with her mom but knowing how her mother was, Happy shouldn't have left something out in the open for her mom to take. glad Halley realized how she is better with Kane than alone

5 star review Fearless (Rosewood Bay # 1) by Carly Phillips Ms.Phillips is off to a flying start with her latest series; this book got and kept my attention from the start and I read it in one sitting. Kane Harmon lives and works in Rosewood Bay running his garage business. He has no time for a committed relationship after being burnt before.When he takes his tow truck out to rescue a customer he is shocked to find the woman is Halley Ward, a woman he used to protect against school bullies in his youth. He had no idea that Halley was still in Rosewood Bay. Halley is lives the life of a hermit, distant from her family, she lives a life of solitude near the beach. From the moment Kane sets eyes on her again, he is attracted to her and is determined to bring Halley back to life, for her to re connect with her family and with life itself. Of course the only drawback to this plan is that Halley is not interested, or so she says. As Kane slowly chips away at the brick wall she has surrounded herself with, Halley becomes more and more intrigued with him and slowly opens up. I fell hard and fast for Kane, he is so kind and caring and swoon worthy; honestly I challenge anyone not to fall for Kane.Halley has overcome so much and I really was cheering for her to get her happily ever after. I look forward to reading the next book in thee series. Congratulations Ms.Phillips you have another winning series on your hands.

I've been reading books by Carly Phillips for years and have loved them all. Fearless is absolutely my favorite book she has ever written. I literally read it in one sitting and wanted to restart it as soon as I finished reading it. Halley Ward and her older sister Phoebe were put into the foster system at a very young age. Their baby sister Juliette had already gone to live with her father and the girls didn't hear from family until their Aunt Joy found out about them being in the foster system 10 years later. Halley is happiest at her oceanside cottage painting. She is happy to live a pretty solitary life with no commitments to another person. Well she is until she meets Kane Harmon again and he keeps appearing in her life. I love that Kane was a friend first with Halley and a constant presence in her life without ever pushing her to do or be more than what se was ready for. They had a pretty instant attraction to one another, yet there really was more of a slow burn to them being together. Based on everything we learned of Halley's past, any other type of start wouldn't have worked for them long term. Halley comes across as pretty delicate in the beginning. However when you find out everything she has survived from the time with her mother and then in foster care, she has a backbone and a strength to her that most people don't have. Yes she chooses to spend time with only a select few people as self-preservation, but I had so much respect for Halley the more we learned about all she had gone through. When her mother comes back into the picture, I honestly hoped with everything in me that she was ready to change and be a part of her children's lives again. I had a feeling about what she was going to do, but still broke my heart to see how it effected Halley. Fearless hit on all my emotions and I loved every single minute of this book. I laughed, cried, sighed and even got angry a couple of times, but loved the ride along the way. I loved Halley and Kane's story and can't wait to read Phoebe's story next.
