She’s a small-town girl.
He’s got a restless spirit.
Can their hearts bridge the gap?
Michael Marsden’s adoptive parents gave him a family, but Serendipity never felt like home so he fled to Manhattan, where he’s an undercover cop with a reputation for skirting the rules. But when his police chief father steps down to fight a serious illness, Mike returns home to fill his dad’s by-the-book shoes.
Serendipity hasn’t changed much but there’s one familiar face from the past that he never expected to see—Officer Cara Hartley. She’s the only woman that ever made him consider giving up his lone-wolf ways.
Cara is determined to keep a professional distance from her new boss, the one night stand she never forgot. But hearing Mike’s deep, sexy voice ignites memories of how he set her body on fire. It isn’t long before their red-hot chemistry tempts them to cross a dangerous line both personally and professionally, leaving Cara hoping for a future where she can have it all.
But when Mike’s long-absent biological father returns, the fragile bonds that could have kept him in Serendipity threaten to snap. And Mike must face his past if he and Cara are to have any kind of future.
Will Mike realize he fits perfectly in Serendipity with Cara, or will he choose to walk away?

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy (ARC) of this book. Received from BookSprout. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I love Carly Phillips books. I love this one too. But it’s missing a few chapters. As I went through on Apple Books, I had blank pages. So although I got the gist of the story, I was disappointed to be missing those chapters.
More than just a romance!
This is book 1 in the Serendipity’s Finest series and it features Mike and Cara. They shared one night and he was gone by morning. Now he’s back for a short time and wants a “no hearts involved” extended non-relationship. Read this fantastic story to find out what happens to this man and woman when all the cards are on the table.
Great story line with awesome characters! I love that there was so much more going on than just Mike and Cara’s relationship in this story. These are people I’d like to be friends with in real life. Definitely looking forward to the next book in this series!
