Publisher Description

He’s from the wrong side of the tracks. She lived in the house on the hill.

Now their fortunes have reversed…but their long-ago attraction still burns.

From high school golden girl to wife of a high-powered New York attorney, Faith Harrington lived the dream. Until divorce and her father’s imprisonment for fraud left her with almost nothing. Now she's back in her hometown to redesign her life, and not every face is friendly. Least of all the town rebel, whose memory lingered long after they shared one searing teenage kiss.

Ethan Barron is a bad boy. Was. Was a bad boy. Now a man—a very rich man—he quietly buys the old Harrington mansion to thumb his nose at Serendipity and the people who looked down on him. But until he reconciles with his brothers and builds a life, the victory rings hollow.

Faith had been a rich girl ripe for rebellion, and his shamelessly stolen kiss still burns in his dreams. Only a fool would risk feeding town gossip by asking her to redecorate the house she grew up in. But Ethan never did choose easy. Not when the hard way promises a much sweeter—and hotter—reward.

Note: Serendipity is book one of a previously published series by NYT Bestselling Author Carly Phillips. Contains a tarnished golden girl, a bad boy in search of redemption, a brother whose first order of business is to ticket his big bro’s Jag, and a town that runs on nosiness.

Five Stars!

Even though I have read most of Carly Phillips books, I hadn’t had the opportunity to read some of her earlier novels like the Serendipity Series. I should have taken the time because I LOVED this! It definitely kept my attention right until the end! I loved the characters and the storyline! And because of the hints at the end, I can’t wait to read the next books in this series!.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Inviting and provocative

SERENDIPITY is the first instalment and re-release in Carly Phillip’s contemporary, adult SERENDIPITY erotic romance series focusing on the people of Serendipity, New York. This is weapons software developer Ethan Barron, and twenty-seven year old, interior designer Faith Harrington’s story line.

Told from dual third person perspectives (Ethan and Faith) SERENDIPITY follows the second chance romance and relationship between weapons software developer Ethan Barron, and twenty-seven year old, interior designer Faith Harrington. Faith Harrington’s return to Serendipity New York comes at a cost. Her father’s fall from grace, fraud charges and subsequent jail sentence makes Faith persona non grata in the small town where she and her family once lauded over with money and wealth but Faith needed a new start, and never expected to come face to face with the boy now man that destroyed her heart. Ethan Barron’s reputation in Serendipity is that of a bad boy, a young man who lost his parents, and contact with his two younger brothers when he joined the US Army. Ethan’s return came with heavy guilt and the knowledge that his brothers would and could not forgive him, a guilt which he continues to struggle but a surprise visitor is about to upend not only his world but that of the woman with whom he is falling in love, a woman who is also struggling to move on from the past. Guilty by association both Ethan and Faith work together in an effort to forge ahead without the support of family or friends. What ensues is the rebuilding romance and relationship between Ethan and Faith, and the potential fall-out as Faith battles between head and heart when her past refuses to let go, destroying Faith once again.

Ethan Barron broke Faith Harrington’s heart ten year earlier when he disappeared without a word. Having lost his parents,and his brothers to the foster care system, Ethan struggled to forgive himself in the wake of brothers’ accusations and ongoing grief. Faith Harrington knew returning to Serendipity would never be easy but never expected to find the man who broke her heart was the same man who now owned the house where she once lived.

The relationship between Ethan and Faith is one of second chances; a rekindling romance between frenemies who have both struggled with demons from the past. Ethan has never stopped loving his childhood friend but Faith continues to battle between head and heart believing her past is about to destroy any chance of moving forward. the $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.

We are introduced to Ethan’s estranged brothers: police officer Dare Barron, and attorney Nash Barron; Faith’s mother Lanie Harrington; and Faith’s friends Kate, handyman Nick Mancini and his sister April (fashion designer and consignment store operator), journalist Lissa, and newcomers Kelly and Tessa Moss.

SERENDIPITY is a story of family and relationships, grief and guilt, betrayal and forgiveness, acceptance and love. The premise is inviting; the characters are charming and attractive; the romance is flirtatious and provocative.
