Halley had a rough childhood with a drug addict mother and too many bad foster homes until her aunt took in Halley and her sister Phoebe. Halley doesn’t like crowds or people in her personal space, and is very careful to only engage in meaningless encounters that don’t lead to a relationship. She’s content to avoid town and spend her time painting in her beachside cottage. But when her car breaks down and Kane shows up to help, they both get a lot more than they bargained for.
I was intrigued by this book’s cover, so I was glad to be able to read an advance copy. I thought it looked dark and suspenseful, but Kane and Halley's story was surprisingly light and uplifting. They both had plenty of pain in their past and currently have their hands full, Kane with his gambling father and single-mom sister and her son, and Halley with ghosts from her foster care experiences and family surprises, so it isn’t an ideal time for a relationship. Plus the fact that Halley doesn’t do relationships.
Kane was such a wonderful hero! He knew what he wanted, but he was wise enough to cajole and entice Halley to his way of thinking, rather than laying it all out and scaring her off. Halley has only trusted two people in her life, her aunt and her sister, and she’s so afraid of letting anyone else get close, because anyone else who has gotten close has hurt her. But she wants something with Kane she has never wanted before, and she knows she'll have to let go of her fear.
Fearless is a terrific start to a promising new series by a talented author. With an abundance of heat, a little humor and a ton of heart, this book is definitely worth a 1-Click. If you’re like me and enjoy a series of standalone romances, you’ll be eager to catch up with these characters in Phoebe's story, Breathe.
*I reviewed this book freely and voluntarily, having made no commitment to provide a review and receiving no compensation of any kind from any source for this review.
Kane Harmon is a mechanic and runs his family's garage. He took over from his dad when he dad's demon's got the best of him. Kane avoids summer flings with the summer people after being burnt.
Halley was put in the foster care system due to neglect from her drug addicted mother. Halley was bounced from home to home due to no fault of her own until her sister, Phoebe and her are taken in by their aunt. Her mom came from a wealthy family and it's hard for Halley to accept that.
After Kane rescues Halley's broken down car he finally convinces her to accept a date. These two have baggage. Kane with growning up with a dad who has a gambling addiction and Halley's with her past experiences in the foster care system.
What I loved the most about Kane (trust me there is a lot to love) is that he seems to know exactly how to tread with Halley. How to get her to open up a little at a time and how to back off when she's getting uncomfortable. This wonderful man has a lot on his plate, he's running the family business, helping his single mom sister out by taking care of his nephew when needed and being the adult child when his dad goes off the rails.
I loved it when jealousy reared it's ugly head and made Halley claim Kane as hers without even thinking about it. Suprised him too in a very good way!
When Halley's past comes into her present and shakes her beliefs in herself she shuts down again and this time the only one that can save her is herself.
When Halley blocks Kane out of her life it's soul crushing. They both finally had a well deserved happiness going. They were each making changes to gain control of their lives and their possible future and now their future seems to be one that they will not have together. The struggle that Halley had was so real. I wanted to help her out and give her words of encouragement to reach for her happiness.
This series is off to a great start! Can't wait to read Book 2, Breathe

I've anxiously been awaiting this new series from Carly Phillips and as expected, I was not disappointed! This book is the first in the new Rosewood Bay series and can be read as a standalone. It has a little bit of everything in it and that was one of the reasons I did not want to put it down.
Kane Harmon has grown up in Rosewood Bay and now owns Harmon's Garage, the business previously owned and run by his father. When a call comes in to tow a stranded motorist, Kane ends up having to go since there are no other available employees to make the run. When he arrives and realizes the driver is one of his high school classmates, he's not only happy to help, but he's also very intrigued by what he's seeing from this girl who has now become a very beautiful woman.
Halley Ward relies on herself and that's the way she likes it. Her childhood was less than ideal and she still has very deep wounds and scars from that time in her life. Because of the trauma she experienced, she lives in a bungalow on the beach, focuses on her paintings, doesn't date and finds it hard to be emotionally available.
When Kane comes to Halley's aide when her SUV breaks down, he very much wants to take the opportunity to get to know this woman who has captured his attention. The question is, will she let him get close enough where he can chip away at her walls? And, will complications in Kane's life cause problems for the duo as well?
Carly Phillips has crafted a story that sucks you in and keeps you invested in the outcome of these complex people. I was engaged in this story from the outset and there is no shortage of emotion in this book. You feel empathy, sympathy, love and disappointment along with the characters. I am very much looking forward to the next book in this series and I'd highly recommend you pick this one up!
