Parker Knight was going through the motions… and then he met her.

Parker Knight lived and lost his dream. Now he works for his family’s business, wearing a suit and pretending to be happy. A weekend away to plan a corporate retreat turns into a revelation when he lays eyes on Emily Stevens, the sexy owner of a small inn that’s seen better days. One look at Emily and the run down bed and breakfast and suddenly Parker has a purpose. He turns his short stay into a longer one, intending to act on the intense chemistry and desire that runs hot between them. While there, he plans to give Emily and her father’s inn a much needed infusion of cash and manpower.

Coming off an emotionally abusive marriage, Emily has an immediate bias against suave, city guys … But despite the slick exterior, Emily discovers Parker is sweet, charming and eager to help. And when she caves to their incredible passion, she discovers he makes her feel just as good in bed as out. Yet no matter how hot they burn or how well they mesh, Parker’s time with her has an expiration date. And Emily has an ex who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.

Parker isn’t a man who gives up. Sweet, sexy Emily Stevens is his chance to reclaim his life. He wants to take care of this woman who makes him feel … everything. If only he could figure out how to merge his two lives, everything would be perfect. But when her ex makes his move, Parker realizes what’s important. He only hopes he isn’t too late.


  • Heart Eyes for Parker

    By Lnn20122
    I knew this was going to be a great read from chapter one. I felt for Parker and his situation. I wanted him to have his HEA with someone who saw him as more than a pass to financial freedom. I'm not surprised this book is a five star read for me. Carly has a way of setting up the story and introducing the characters in a way that gets the reader immediately invested in their well-being and where the story is going. She builds intrigue without too much angst. Just enough for you to want to see what happens next but not to where you feel like your gut drops. This one was a page-turner. Loved it!
  • Knight ❤️

    Another terrific Knight brother to swoon over! And swoon I did over the hottie Parker with his handsomeness, his athleticism and his heroism. And when he comes to Emily’s rescue he’s dynamite. Emily might be leery of the hunky middle Knight brother but the chemistry is too hot to deny even if she’s been hurt in the past. Parker has a few demons of his own and Emily is the perfect fit to help him overcome his disappointment. As these two work to forge a new reality and a romantic connection it’s wonderful. Love this author’s storytelling and fabulous characters. Sexy romance and wonderful family. Just exceptional! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • Knight in shining armor!

    By Newberryd
    Super hotness!! Parker was nicknamed “Switzerland” by his family because of his easygoing nature and for trying to keep the peace, middle child like. Parker loves to help others. A trip for business to Colorado and meeting Emily changed something inside of him. Emily is recovering from a bad relationship and dealing with grief. Her tryst with Parker has a built in time expiration, and she believes she is fine with that. Off the charts chemistry and seriously hot encounters are Carly Phillips trademarks. This story does not disappoint in the hotness factor. Dealing with the past and working through family dynamics are qualities of Carly’s books that draw you in and keep you reading.

  • Hard to put down!

    By 12toot
    You never know when starting a book what characters will draw you in. Why certain ones make you keep reading and getting more involved with their stories and others don’t keep your interest. There was something about Parker and Emily that kept me interested. Parker was a really nice guy, not a pushover, but was unselfish and who lost his direction. Emily had a lot of losses in a short amount of time and was unfairly overprotective of her father. Parker and Emily came together at the right time in their life, when they needed what each could give to the other. This was an easy read and was hard to put down. I’m looking forward to Ethan’s story.

  • Love the Knight brothers !

    By Crystal's Book World
    I love the Knight family and I am still hurting for Ian. He plays a role in this story, but the light shines on his little brother Parker. I feel for the hero of this story. I can feel how he is lost and just trying to fit in a world that he does not belong to. He needs the outdoors. He needs a new dream. With demons crawling from the past, he does not seem like he will ever find happiness again. I hurt for Parker. Emily is our strong heroine. She has a lot going on, but I can relate to her as a constant worrier. She has so much love that you can feel through each page you are reading. The chemistry with the characters goes unnoticed.
  • Great Fun read!!

    Parker Knight is was a skier with dreams of going to the Olympics. After getting hurt he was forced to retired, and as you can imagine life has never been the same. He functions but he is not living his life to the fullest. His siblings recognize this and get him an assignment that forces him out of his office and not a skiers dreamland. Emily is back home helping her father at the B&B her mother and father opened, although she strongly believes her father should just sell the B&B and let someone younger deal with all the repairs it needs. Parker is instantly attracted to Emily even though she is clearly working hard at not liking him. He represents everything she mistrusts and doesn't want in her life again. Its a love story that reminds us to slow down and look at what is right in front of us because sometimes life is giving us a second chance at happiness.

As he travels in Colorado to scope out a retreat site he meets Emily who has her own set of baggage. As Parker tries to help Emily he falls.....for someone he can’t have. Read this truly wonderful Carly Phillips 5 star novel to see if Parker gets his happily ever after. I loved it.
  • Learning to live again!

    By Cheryl SDS
    This is book 2 in the Knight Brothers series and it features Parker and Emily. Parker has had a rough time at life. He’s been through so much, repeatedly. It may have been intrusive of Ethan but I’m glad he brought in the private investigator. This is a story about learning to live again after so much tragedy. Both Parker and Emily have been through a lot. It was perfect between them until life got in the way. I didn’t see any way it could work out. This is a scorching HOT romance with a fantastic story line and awesome characters. I can’t wait for the next book!
