    This story was okay There was enough plot to keep reading but the hero who claimed to take responsibility said for most of the book that he was not into commitment and would eventually return to his long term undercover job Oxymoron until last ten pages Secret FBI agent Cole becomes a body guard for attorney Erin after she is shot.

    Favorite Scene Cole and Erin drove back to Nick s house in comfortable silence He didn t feel the need to discuss what went on in his father s hospital room, and Erin didn t ask She knew from his somewhat calm demeanor that at least there had been no yelling or confrontation, and for that she was grateful.She couldn t remember ever beingexhausted At the top of the stairs, she turned toward the master bedroom, expecting Cole to head the other way to the room he d been staying in for the Favorite Scene Cole and Erin drove back to Nick s house in comfortable silence He didn t feel the need to discuss what went on in his father s hospital room, and Erin didn t ask She knew from his somewhat calm demeanor that at least there had been no yelling or confrontation, and for that she was grateful.She couldn t remember ever beingexhausted At the top of the stairs, she turned toward the master bedroom, expecting Cole to head the other way to the room he d been staying in for the last couple of days Erin She turned What s up I Never mind Oh, there was something, she thought, studying him Weariness was evident in his handsome face and she realized the strain of all they d gone through, plus Jed, was wearing on the both Talk to me She walked up to where he stood, leaning on the railing.He shook his head There was nothing specific I just Erin took a leap You don t want to be alone, she said, hoping she wasn t so far off base she d be mortified when he said she was wrong.He exhaled and nodded Relief shot through her and she held out her hand She didn t want to be alone either As tired as she was, there was nothing sexual in her offer, and she didn t get the feeling he was looking to cross that line again either But they shared the same concerns over her safety and over Victoria s craziness and potential next move, and now they both were worried about Jed It made sense that they keep each other company while waiting for the morning and for the surgery to come Main Characters Erin Marsden Erin is an Assistant District Attorney in Serendipity She comes from a family of police officers and is thought of by everyone as the good girl Erin has a heart of gold and a softness about her but, at the same time, she can be a take charge kind of girl.Cole Sanders Cole is an undercover agent in New York He has a typical bad boy reputation but despite his reputation and good looks he is very uncertain about himself He just never thinks he deserves good things in his life His entire personality just endeared him to me.Mike Sam Marsden Mike Sam are Erin s brothers Both work on the police force and their overprotectiveness drives Erin crazy.Macy Donovan Macy is Erin s best friend Her family owns The Family Restaurant in Serendipity She can be a spitfire but she always has a shoulder for Erin to lean on She s loyal and very devoted.My Thoughts Erin Marsden is the local Assistant District Attorney in Serendipity She has a reputation for being a good girl but after her brother s wedding she stopped at Joe s bar and everything changed A dance with Cole Sanders sets the ball rolling and the next morning Erin wakes up in his bed Erin is shocked at her behavior and can t believe she had a one night stand With Cole Sanders who she has always had a crush on Crawling out of Cole s bed and moving on with her life isn t as easy as she thought, especially when she finds out she s pregnant Eventually Erin is shot in the parking lot at work and Cole becomes her self appointed bodyguard Each day, Erin finds herself fallingandin love with Cole but he is determined to keep her at arms length because once she is safe he is leaving and going back undercover Will Erin s plan to introduce Cole into her life publically help him see what he has been missing and remove the barriers he has errected around himself Or will Erin have to accept the way things are and eventually say goodbye to the man she has come to love Cole Sanders is the typical bad boy according the the people of Serendipity Even Cole admits he wasn t a model kid growing up but the one thing he did right was have a one night stand with Erin Marsden he just hasn t figured it out yet Cole grew up with a father that belittled him regularly and was never satisfied with the person Cole was Even after Cole turned his life around and has a respectable job his father still continues to slam his character every chance he gets Cole grew up feeling unworthy and undeserving but Erin makes him feel as if he deserves the world Little by little Cole realizes what Erin and their baby have come to mean to him but can he walk away from the life he loves as an undercover agent for a home and family Can he make a life in the very town he feels no longer accepts him Perfect Fling was just that Perfect I loved Cole s character the most, I think Cole was a typical bad boy but underneath he had so many insecurities He felt unworthy due to his father s constant put downs I wanted to strangle Jed It was so touching to see this tough guy always second guessing his value and worthiness Erin was a perfect compliment to Cole She always knew what he was thinking and knew how to make him feel that he deserved the good things in life She was his champion, always sticking up for him and seeing the good in him Cole and Erin are my Feel Good couple of the year I have yet to read a book this year where the couple drew me in and held me enthralled to such an extent The storyline was great as it kept me on the edge of my seat I had a hard time putting it down and it only wet my appetite forof the series Carly Phillips sucked me in like my trusty old vacuum sucks up the dirt on my carpet Awesome 5 Star read

    Shey s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsReview copy provided by the publisher for an honest review5 StarsCarly Phillips never ceases to amaze me when I pick up one of her books and Perfect Fling was no exception Able to make you feel the connection between not just the characters but what they are dealing with her writing style takes you into their hearts, souls, and the pains of their past making you feel a part of their lives without being aware.Ms Phillips has this uncanny abil Shey s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsReview copy provided by the publisher for an honest review5 StarsCarly Phillips never ceases to amaze me when I pick up one of her books and Perfect Fling was no exception Able to make you feel the connection between not just the characters but what they are dealing with her writing style takes you into their hearts, souls, and the pains of their past making you feel a part of their lives without being aware.Ms Phillips has this uncanny ability to create characters that are a perfect blend for one another in this case Erin was light to Cole s darkness.However, both strong and determined in their own way to do what is best for the other Cole Sanders lets that of his past dictate his future and that has made him into the man he is distant, hard, and cool, he has chosen a job that keeps him on a fine from that is reality and what isn t where he doesn t have to be himself The man he doesn t seem to like very much.I didn t think it was possible for Carly Phillips to write such a male especially after her last book where we meet Mike Marsden but I was so wrong Cole is the mysterious, the dangerous and the tortured soul you want to fix, and he is F KIN Perfect Your heart bleeds for him, you get angry at him and you want to hold him all at the same time I loved Mike, didn t think I could replace him or Dare but Cole definitely did.Erin Marsden is just as strong and stubborn as the man she once knew long ago One night when she lets her defenses down changes her life forever Erin is smart she knows there are secrets hidden behind Cole s armor but he s also a different man when he s with her Yet their one night turns into the forever kind and Erin must show him that he s every bit of worth to her.When the dangers of Cole s job threaten Erin s life Cole does all he can to protect her even if that means walking away Yet, when Erin is the one that pulls away Cole realized that sometimes letting go of the past is what you need to do to move ahead and grab what you want and it s much better done when you re not alone.One thing you can always count on in a Carly Philips book her storylines are real and sometimes heartbreaking yet in the end she brings healing where it needs to be
