    Emotion Filled Romance

    I absolutely adored Summer Lovin' by Carly Phillips. It is the second book in the Costas Sisters series but reads pretty well as a stand-alone story. I had to laugh at how Zoe and Ryan first met and how they had a misunderstanding about his identity. When you hear the term opposites attract, Zoe Costas and Ryan Baldwin fit the statement perfectly. Zoe is way more of a free spirit than Ryan and while she can handle some rules, she goes more with her feelings than too many rules. Ryan is a Boston Baldwin and while he pretty much always follows the rules, he can tell as soon as he meets his niece Sam, that she is a free spirit like her mom. I loved there was an attraction between Zoe and Ryan from pretty much the moment they met. I also loved they both worried so much about Sam and what was best for her, all while trying to figure out what had really happened with Ryan's sister. Zoe and Ryan had to find a way to get their two very different families to work together for Sam's best interest. I liked the bit of mystery that Zoe and Ryan had to figure out when it came to Sam's mom. I also have to say I adored how the Baldwin family started to bend and be so much more understanding when it came to their granddaughter. The Costas family is such an accepting group that you just knew they would do anything for Sam just like they would for any other member of their family. I really liked Zoe and Ryan as a couple. Again, there was an attraction between them from the very beginning, and it got stronger the more time they spent together. I hated that Zoe was so hesitant in admitting her feelings to others, her family included. However, I felt like her feelings for Ryan were too strong for her to fight. Summer Lovin' had me experiencing so many different emotions as I read it. I laughed at all the antics of the Costas clan and Sam, smiled and sighed as I saw Zoe and Ryan fall in love, and even experienced both anger and sadness as we learned the truth about Ryan's sister and her past. I love a story that makes me feel so many different emotions as I read it and highly recommend Summer Lovin'. Rating: 5 Stars (A)

    Lovin the rerelease

    Zoe Costas is starting a new business with her brother in law, and while just getting to know her family again she finds out that the young girl Sam, her parents are close to adopting, her biological uncle comes in to the picture. Ryan Baldwin a lawyer from Boston. When Zoe and Ryan end up getting thrown together trying to help Sam, Zoe and Ryan find they have some great chemistry together. 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.

    The Costas family is laugh out loud funny!

    It sure has been fun, re-reading these older books of Carly Phillips. I had forgotten how crazy and funny the Costas clan was! This is the second book in the Costas Sisters series and Zoe Costas' story. Having recently left the Secret Service, Zoe has now started up a security specialist company along with Quinn and Connor. She is also living at her parents home since they now are fostering Sam, with the hopes of adopting her. When a strange guy shows up at Sam's party, they all assume he is the temporary social worker on Sam's case but in reality he is actually Sam's Uncle Ryan. When Zoe finds out that Ryan is not a social worker, she calls him on it and he tells her that he is Sam's uncle. Both of them decide not to let the family know who Ryan really is until they get to know more about each other....which neither of them seem to mind because there is definite chemistry going on there! It is pretty funny how completely opposite these two are! When someone is threatening Sam, Zoe and Ryan work together to try and figure out what is going on and end up taking Sam to Boston where Ryan's family lives. The Baldwin's way of life is night and day different from the Costas way of life. This was such a fun comparison! While working together, things are definitely heating up between Zoe and Ryan and have both of them feeling things that they have never felt before. The mystery behind the threats was fun and entertaining. I really enjoyed how everything played out in the end and really loved Zoe and Ryan's happy ending. Overall, this was a fun and entertaining story with some great, colorful characters!

    Great read!

    Carly Phillips never fails to deliver a great read. Summer Lovin was the 2nd story in the Costas Sisters series but can totally be read as a stand alone. I have to say that my favorite part of this story was Zoe's family. Hilarious, eccentric, close knit and just a fun group! I wanted to jump in and be apart of it all! I loved Zoe for Ryan. The term opposites attract are perfect for these two. Stiff, uptight Ryan meets his match with doesn't like to follow the rules Zoe. Their chemistry was undeniable and off the charts sexy! If you're looking for a fun, sexy, light and a suspense with your book, this one is for you!!! Happy reading!

    Exciting,, Emotional Romance

    Highly entertaining, Sweet, Sexy and Emotional Opposites attract romance. Loved the mystery and small element of danger thrown in with the family bounding issues. Very true to life wile still being a interesting escape. 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!
