Insta-love only happens in the movies.

Insta-lust? That she’d buy into.

Until she meets take-charge club owner Landon Bennett and falls head over heels at a glance.

When hot as sin Landon Bennet offers sexy songstress Vivienne Clark a summer residency at his popular Manhattan nightclub, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime and she can’t resist. Add in the man’s obvious interest and seductive attention and life is perfect. Until she puts together the pieces of his past. Fate might have brought them together, but is the intimate relationship they’ve been building strong enough to overcome one painful fact. She’s the sister of the man who killed his twin.


  • Landon and Vivi find love!

    By Newberryd
    Landon has an incredible physical reaction to a photo of a singer he wants to hire for his club. Meeting her in person reinforces his desire to spend as much time with her as possible. Vivi can’t believe her luck when she is offered a summer residency singing at a local club, until she figures out who owns the club. Vivi couldn’t be more different than her brother, but she doesn’t think it is enough to build a relationship on, professional or personal. Landon can’t believe his rotten luck, to have such a strong emotional reaction to the last person he should even want to be around. It’s a lot to overcome, but the heart wants what the heart wants. Explosive chemistry that touches their souls is not summer fling material, its lifetime material. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • Review: Sexy 3: Better Than Sexy

    By LisaHines711
    Better than Sexy by Carly Phillips is the third book in her Sexy series. An adjacent visit to the world of the Dare family, and another glance into the lives of the owners of club Ten29. This one is Landon's story and it's a doozy! Landon experiences instant attraction with the singer they want to hire for the summer for the club, one Vivienne Clark, but sooner or later, even the attraction between them can't outrun the secrets that darken their shared past. Emotional, well-written, well-paced, and with some hot button issues, the sacrifices each of them is eventually willing to make for each other and for love is heart-warming. Enjoy!
  • Love Landon and the journey he takes for love

    By mj_toth
    Vivi loves music and has been working hard to build a career out of her passion. When she gets her big break, she is stunned to learn it’s at the very club that was named in honor of the boy her brother Vic killed in college. I love her courage to walk away when what she wants is right in front of her. Landon knows that Vivi is the singer they need to solidify the success of Club Ten29 for the summer and is shocked when she turns down the offer. After their initial meeting, he knows she felt the same chemistry he did so he decides that no is not an acceptable answer. Landon and Vivi are a fabulous duo together but what will happen when the truth comes out about Vivi’s family? Can Landon find forgiveness? Will Landon’s family be able to accept Vivi into their lives? I enjoyed getting to experience Vivi’s journey to take this opportunity and turn it into the next big thing for her musically. The passion shared between Landon and Vivi is electric. But experiencing Landon’s journey to truly face his grief and the loss of his twin brother Levi, was inspiring.
  • Lust or Love at First Sight

    By Jes Bruno
    With Landon’s partners finding their other halves and starting new things, it was only time till Landon finds his. Lust at first sight but it’s who her family is that might have Landon Bennett running the other way. Vivienne Zane is the new hottest signer to hit New York and the TEN29 club wants her to headline for the summer. Can Vivi prove that she not her brother and that she and Landon having something worth fighting for? Carly Phillips has written another swoon-worthy fast-paced romance that you won’t be able to put down. Really looking forward to reading the novella connected to this series.
  • Not worth the money

    By Sej8339
    There has to be some new trend where authors write great sample chapters and then stop caring after. Once you get past the sample it’s like reading a skeleton outline. Case and point no depth, no development of the plot of characters. Just oh here’s the trouble they just overcome. The exact sentence that got me was “he had been a thorough lover” that was a thought process in the characters head. This book had such great bones and plot but there is minimal development. It’s 350 pages on my iPhone. Thats not nearly enough writing to actually thoroughly develop characters. This isn’t the first book guilty of it. But I wish authors cared more about developing and delivering a compelling story than getting me to commit after two chapters and then falling off.

  • Such an emotional read!

    By Cheryl SDS
    4.5 Stars This is book 3 in the Sexy series and it features Landon and Vivi. This story is so emotionally charged, sad but beautiful at the same time. Their attraction was immediate. When she realized who he was she tried to cut ties. She just didn’t understand that when Landon Bennet wants something, he’ll do whatever it takes to get it. What happens when he finds out who she REALLY is? Amazing story line and fabulous characters! This is such an emotional read. Landon‘s father broke my heart. I can’t wait to see what this author comes out with next!
  • Review by Christine Jalili

    By Bshksuhwb
    This is such a fantastic book. I loved the instant heat between Landon and Vivi. Their first was just so hot! But she has a secret and can’t really be involved with him. I had some tears on the piano scene, and loved how he goes after her. Will his parents understand? I absolutely loved their happy ever after. It’s a very heartwarming story and I highly recommend this book.
  • Bittersweet conclusion to series

    By charlligirl
    When I started this series with Jason's book, I knew that Landon's book would be bittersweet. Carly Phillips does not fail to deliver in this emotional, eye-opening final chapter. If you haven't read this series, I highly recommend you start at the beginning. You will not want to miss any of the little details leading up to this conclusion. I wish I could say more, but I would give away the story and I really don't want to do that. Trust me, you want to read this book.
