Phillips's latest cheerful romance (Hot Number; The Bachelor) relates the opposites-attract sizzle between a sexy, Greek Jersey girl and a buttoned-down Boston lawyer who come together over the fate of a teenage girl. Zoe Costas lives happily with her big, vibrant family, including her 14-year-old foster sister, Sam, in Ocean Isle, N.J., and runs a security firm in Atlantic City. She's about to turn 30, but she's not pining for a man. That is, until Sam's long-lost (and very handsome) uncle Ryan Baldwin appears, just as Zoe's parents are about to finalize the girl's adoption. Sparks fly at cross purposes: Zoe's family adores Sam, but Ryan hopes to restore his niece to the Baldwins, having just discovered her existence. (Sam's deceased mother ran away from home as a teenager.) Zoe's firm investigates the Baldwin family, and she discovers that Sam's keepsake from her mother, an innocuous set of keys, will unlock the mystery of her mother's last days as well as a family secret. Despite conflicting hopes for Sam—on top of a stark culture clash—Zoe and Ryan team up for Sam's best interests, and, of course, for their own inevitable passion. Phillips's light touch assures a happy ending to this diverting beach read. (Aug.)

In Summer Lovin', free-spirited Zoe Costas is reluctantly intrigued by Ryan Baldwin when he appears on her parents' Ocean Isle, New Jersey, doorstep in the middle of foster daughter Sam's fourteenth birthday party, but complications quickly spiral out of control when she discovers he has come to claim Sam as his niece and take her to Boston, where his upper-crust family was responsible for driving away Sam's mother years ago as a child of 17. Phillips continues the zany adventures of the Costas family in the sequel to the well-received Under the Boardwalk (2004) and replaces Spank the Monkey with Ima Pig for comic relief. Lynne Welch

Zoe Costas is a security specialist with a huge heart, sassy attitude and wicked smarts who comes from a big loving Greek family. Ryan Baldwin is a heart stooping sexy, charming, sweet and protective alpha male with a highly conservative wealthy but emotionally stingy family. He also happens to be looking for his big sister that ran away when he was 13 only to find her gone and he has a 14 year old niece currently living with the Costas family getting ready to be adopted by them. Awesome chick lit!
This is rerelease of one of Carly Phillips books that I read years ago and it was as good if not better this time around. I would highly recommend that you read this book. Carly Phillips has again written a five star read.
