Synopsis
Looks aren’t everything.
It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good…
Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever—and that old humiliation hits hard.
I recognize him immediately. The hottest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league.
But then he kisses me.
And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything.
Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months.
Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over “necessary” tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off.
But there’s something he’s not telling me about why he’s really hanging around, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers.
Because this is not a makeover story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale…

About Avery


USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Fall for the missing Ward sister…
Juliette Collins is privileged and isolated from the world by her over-protective father. She thinks she knows the truth about her history until a file in her father’s safe reveals she has sisters she never knew about. A family she’s never met. Betrayed, she realizes there’s a life waiting for her outside the walls of her daddy’s New York City penthouse and Juliet is determined to live it. Against her father’s wishes, she heads to a small beach community to meet her siblings… and finds herself way out of her depth instead.

If her father wants to know his daughter is safe, it’s no problem and an easy way of earning a paycheck. Except Braden doesn’t count on falling for the sheltered Juliette. Watching her experience her firsts, getting an apartment, finding a job, meeting up with her lost sisters, soon Braden’s brand of protection becomes a little too personal.

Excerpt:
“You have a customer. First booth.” Grace tipped her head toward the front of the restaurant. ““And he’s a cute one. Single, too,” Grace said with a wink.
“So this is what small-town living is like? You know everyone?”
She nodded. “And everyone gets to know you. Now shoo.” She waggled her fingers, indicating Juliette should head up front and serve her customer.
She put a smile on her face and strode toward the first table, stopping short when she came upon him.
He had thick, brown wavy hair, with a strong jaw and hazel eyes, and Grace hadn’t done him justice calling him cute. He was downright gorgeous. A navy tee shirt accented his muscular frame. He had to work out, given the flex and pull of his biceps as he picked up a glass of water and took a long sip.
The men she knew in New York were flimsy compared to this hunky specimen. They wore suits their bodies didn’t fill out and had weak facial profiles. This guy was everything she didn’t know to want, but she was certain he’d be in her dreams from now on.
She swallowed hard and approached, gripping the coffeepot in her hand. “Good morning.”
He looked up and his eyes locked on hers. His mossy-green-brown gaze bored into hers and held on so long the stare felt like a warm caress.
“Good morning to you, pretty lady.”
At his gruff words, a warm flush rose to her cheeks. “Coffee?” she asked, lifting the carafe, her hand suddenly trembling.
“Sure. Thank you.”
She somehow managed to pour the liquid without spilling, but she filled the coffee too high and it seeped over the top, leaking first on the table and then onto his lap.
He jerked as the hot liquid hit his pants.
“Oh my God, I’m so sorry.” She put the carafe down with a clatter, picked up the nearest napkin, and began blotting his shirt and his lap, pressing down to soak up the liquid, only to come into contact with his hard, thick– “Oh!” She yanked her hand back, further mortified.
“You could keep going,” he said, eyes twinkling with laughter.
She wanted to crawl beneath the nearest table and stay there. “I’m so sorry. Did it burn you?” she asked, her cheeks flaming.
“No. It must have been cooler than you realized. I’m fine. Really.”
“Is everything okay over here?” Grace asked, walking over, obviously concerned.
Juliette stepped up, taking responsibility. “I–“
“Just a little accident,” the man said. “It’s no big deal.”
A customer called Grace’s name and she walked away, the incident forgotten. Juliette wished she could put it behind her as easily.
“How about we introduce ourselves, considering you had your hand on my–“
“Juliette,” she said quickly, before he could finish his sentence. “Juliette Collins.”
“Braden Clark,” he said with a knowing grin that made her weak in the knees.
The man’s impact was potent.
“Nice to meet you, Juliette.”
“Same,” she murmured. “Now can I get you a fresh cup of coffee?”
“That would be great.”
She gently picked up the overflowed cup and headed for the kitchen, returning to him with an empty mug and a towel to clean the table. A few careful minutes of serving later, he had his coffee and she was back to her duties, feeling his gaze on her as she worked. His name is Braden Clark and he’s a regular.”
Juliette picked up the coffee carafe. “I’ve got it.”

Liza’ Review:

Just when I think the last book I’ve read by Carly Phillips will be my favorite, she writes another book that become my new favorite book. I swear I didn’t think I would fall in love with another of the Ward sisters the way I did with the first 2 books in the series, and I was so glad to see I was wrong. While Juliette is a Collins rather than a Ward like Phoebe and Halley, she is every bit a Ward from the moment she meets her sisters.

Juliette Collins really did have what seemed like the perfect life. Her father dotes on her and she has all the luxuries money can buy. My heart absolutely broke for Juliette when she discovered her father had not only known about her sisters and mother, but done everything in his power to keep them out of her life. I think I fell in love with Juliette when she not only confronted her father, and then decided to take back her life. 

I loved Juliette decided to go to Rosewood Bay to meet her sisters. She is a bit unsure of herself in the beginning and finding her footing as she has never been on her own before. I loved that while she had no training to be a waitress, she jumped in and worked her hardest to work in the local coffee shop. I think Juliette's determination to live her new life to the fullest was one of the things I loved best about her.

I adored Braden Clark. He was such a yummy hero! He is a cop turned PI and moved back to his hometown to care for his aging father.  How could you not fall head over heels for this guy?!?! Watching Braden care for his father Jonathan and try and keep him home as long as possible absolutely pulled at all of my heartstrings. My only issue was him keeping the secret that Juliette's dad had hired him to watch over her. I really felt like he should have been honest with her much sooner, but even with that error in judgment, I still loved him.

Juliette and Braden might have been a bit of a set up meeting thanks to him working for her father, but I felt their connection pretty much from the very beginning. I absolutely fell in love with them as a couple. Their chemistry was so freaking hot, and I loved that Braden totally let Juliette set the pace. Seriously sigh worthy romance between these two.

I really wish I could say I understood any of what Juliette's dad had been thinking by keeping her all to himself and even going to some pretty major extremes to try and get her to come back home. If there was ever a character who deserved the love of all her family members, it was Juliette and I loved she was strong enough to seek out her sisters and Aunt Joy and finally have a real family. I loved Halley, Phoebe, and Juliette had each other after totally having won the crap parents lottery with their mom and Juliette's dad.

Freed pulled me in from the very first page and I absolutely could not put this book down. I loved it so much I re-read it multiple times to experience this emotional and sexy romance all over again. I highly recommend both this book and the entire Rosewood Bay series to all contemporary romance fans.

Rating: 5 Stars (A)

Nikki’s Review:

This was such a feel good kinda book! Sure, there was drama, but the journey that Juliette was on was amazing to watch.  I loved seeing her gain her independence and gaining the family that she always craved. My heart hurt for her when she found out the truth regarding her drug addict mother.

Braden is such a lovable hero. He has a secret that he's hiding from Juliette, but I can see why he's doing it. He's in an impossible situation. The way he cares for his father who is struggling with Alzheimer's is incredibly sad, and heartwarming. His devotion to making his father his first priority brought out all the feels! 

The chemistry between these two was sizzling. But it's also a bit of a slow burn. They built a friendship before they hit the sheets. 

Juliette's manipulating douche of a father makes finding her own path in life difficult. There were times that I could kind of understand where he was coming from, but to say that he went too far is an understatement. 

As always, Carly Phillips weaves a story that keeps me attached to my kindle until the last page. 

This book was sweet and steamy, and a perfect addition to this incredible series!

UNTIL THERE WAS US (THE MONTGOMERY BROTHERS #7)

Liza’s Review:

Until There Was Us was wonderful addition to the Montgomery Brothers series from Samantha Chase. While I’ve missed a few of the books in the Montgomery Brothers series, I’ve been able to pick back up on stories without feeling lost at all. I was so excited to see we were getting Megan’s story with Until There Was Us.

I’ll just say right up front I loved Megan from the moment we met her. She is such a hard worker and has a crazy-strong work ethic. I think part of why I loved Megan so much is because she isn’t your regular heroine. She isn’t super confident in most areas of her life other than her work life. Thanks to stuff from her childhood mostly, she hides her amazing talent for crochet and everything thinks she is buying all the gifts she makes. I loved she was way more happy in yoga pants and sweatshirts than fancy clothes, but when she dresses up she looks every bit as amazing as she did in her yoga pants. I have to say I think Alex really does help Megan come out of her shell and see how amazing she truly is the more time they are together.

Alex Rebat is pretty sigh worthy from the moment we meet him. He honestly could appear almost too perfect at times, yet there is still something about him that gave off a bit of vulnerability too. I loved that while he accepts Megan as the workaholic she is, he also wants to help her step outside her comfort zone by exploring new things. It was almost like Alex knew what limits he had, as he never seemed to push Megan too far outside her comfort zone. I also love that he and Megan shared so much with each other that they didn’t share with others. Megan trusted Alex with her love of her hobby even before she told any of her family members, even those she talked to about everything. I just fell in love with Megan and Alex as a couple the more time they spent together. 

I honestly worried because of how everything ended between them after the wedding hookup; they might have issues getting past it. However, they had such a connection and such amazing chemistry, I felt like the more time the spent together the more I knew they would fight to be together. I love when I read a romance and fall in love with the couple, and with Alex and Megan, I fell in love with them as much as they fell in love with each other. 

Until There Was Us was an emotion filled romance that pulled me in and made me want more. I find myself falling more and more in love with the various family members in Samantha Chase’s books with each new story I read. I highly recommend her books to romance readers who love contemporary romances.
