The small town of Yorkshire Falls and its colorful inhabitants including a mysterious panty-raider and a fun-loving but devious mother are a sturdy stage for Phillips's (Erotic Invitation) romantic romp. After news of his mother's weak heart summons him home, globetrotting journalist Roman Chandler loses a coin toss with his brothers that determines who will relinquish his bachelor status to give their mother a grandchild. Roman decides to "settle down" without giving up his travel-intensive job, and as one of the most handsome men in town, he can have his pick of the local women except for Charlotte Bronson, his high school crush. Thoughts of her parents' miserable long-distance marriage keep Charlotte from accepting Roman's proposal, despite the sexual sparks that fly at their every encounter. Mutual attraction eventually proves too powerful to resist, however, but first Roman must win her trust.… (mais)

An enjoyable, vibrant read
4 stars

I’m a big fan of Carly Phillips but I was a bit late to the party and this is the first time I’ve read any of The Chandler Brothers books. They’ve been updated and modernised for their 20th birthday and now have hot and sexy new covers, too. They still stand alone with this book featuring one couple who get their own HEA.

Charlotte was a likeable character who was equal parts smart and savvy, and cautious and unsure. She was definitely a strong, modern woman who I enjoyed, even when I didn’t agree with some of her decisions/actions.

Roman - all three Chandler brothers, really - were the perfect kind of heroes. Masculine, alpha, hot, sexy and aware of exactly how to treat a woman. I 100% believed his dilemma and his quick descent into feelings with Charlotte.

The chemistry between our couple was palpable and I loved their interactions. The push and pull was frustratingly excellent and I really enjoyed and rooted for them as a pair.

The difference between this and many other Carly Phillips novels I’ve read of late is that this one covers more than just our main couple. We also get a little bit of Raina Chandler - Roman’s mum - and her own feelings and blossoming romance. As well as Annie and Russell - Charlotte’s parents. It was nice to see and hear a different perspective but I was definitely most interested in Roman and Charlotte.

I guess my main reason for giving the book 4 stars rather than 5 was probably down to the excellent writing! I really *believed* Roman was a wanderer at heart and I’m never really happy when a couple being together means some sort of compromise. That’s more than fine in real life but I want fantasy! I was happy in the end - especially since we get an epilogue - yay! - but I was too scared for too long that perhaps things couldn’t work out. But it’s Carly Phillips so of course we get a happy happily ever after.

I didn’t read this book back in the day, so I can’t speak to whether there a lot of differences between this modernised version and the original. But I can say that the story felt very contemporary - not a fax machine, pager or cassette tape in sight!

I’m looking forward to the rest of the revamped Chandler Brothers Books - The Playboy and The Heartbreaker. And strangely, I’m also considering crocheting myself some sexy lingerie! 4 stars for this one and an enjoyable, vibrant and absorbing read. ( )

Very cute and amusing. Roman is a good man, as are his brothers. I'm loving seeing their mother give them a run for their bachelorhood. ( )

Enjoyable story with the mother of 3 eligible bachelors plotting to get them happily married. Book 1 of 3 in the series. ( )

Audiobook - This is a romance novel - I didn't really enjoy it too much - very predictable. ( )
