A jilted bride. Her brother’s ex-buddy. An affair would be crazy…right?

Chloe Kingston’s life is exactly how she needs it: safe and stable. Right up until her reliable, low-risk fiancé jilts her on their fairy-tale wedding day. As she works her way through the reception champagne—and wonders where she’s going to live—she stumbles into her brother Linc’s ex-best friend.

If only Beckett Daniels were hideous. But he’s not. He’s everything her erstwhile groom was not. Hot. Sexy. Dangerous. And she’s just buzzed enough to want all that Greek-god gorgeousness to show her the kind of fun she’s been missing.

Beck thrives on calculated risks, but taking advantage of Linc’s little sister isn’t one of them. What he can do is haul her tipsy, tulle-clad, tempting little butt to the bridal suite to sleep it off. Then move her into his spare room—which has the satisfying side effect of driving her brother crazy.

They can’t remain platonic roommates for long. Not when the sexual attraction sizzles out of control. But when tragedy threatens Beck, pain from his past reminds them both that life doesn’t come without risks…and this time, they're gambling with their hearts.

    So good..
  • Can she have a JUST FOR FUN good time?

    By Cheryl SDS
    4.5 Stars  This is book 2 in The Kingston Family series and it features Chloe Kingston and Beckett Daniels. She’s got a lot to figure out now that her life isn’t going exactly like she planned.  She’s got this gorgeous, sexy man who has come to her rescue after she was left at the alter.  Can she have a “just for fun” good time with Beck while she puts her life back together?   Fabulous story line with awesome characters!  This is a shorter than normal book but the story was fantastically complete with no holes in anybody’s thread. I can’t wait to read the next book in this family drama filled, sexy series!
  • Loved book 2!

    By Jmoms
    The second book in the Kingston Family series was wonderful. Beck and Chloe hit it off in the lowest point of Chloes life. Beck was there for her after being left at the alter and saved her when she was drunk. Chloe’s brother thinks it was to get back at him since they have history between them. Seeing them go from friendship to trust and love was sexy and I could not put the book down. Waiting for her brothers, Xander and Dash’s books! Carly Phillips never disappoints. Even if you haven’t read Lincs book this is a stand-alone but I highly recommend reading every book from Carly Phillips. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • Loved it!

    By Evergreenbrdx
    Dumped at the alter via text Chloe just wants to escape. Trying to make the best of her receipts on with her friends running into Beck and his brothers was not what she expected. Beck cannot believe his old friend’s sister is here but he is determined to make sure she stays safe but can he keep his heart safe? Offering Chloe a place to stay and get her life back on track he just can’t ignore the chemistry between them. Can Beck learn to trust and open his heart? I love these two together!
  • Left at the alter … What’s a girl to do?

    By charlligirl
    Jilted bride? Check. Bad boy savior? Check. Will they be able to help each other without hurting the other? No. What's a girl to do when her fiance breaks up with her via text on their wedding day? Get drunk, of course. And everything spirals from there. Chloe finally stands up to her brothers. Linc has to come clean about what happened to his friendship with Beck twice. Chloe grows a backbone thanks to Beck, but it ends up costing her her heart. Is it worth it? I'm not sure. I enjoyed this love story even though that's not how it started out. Life likes to throw curveballs and these two were thrown a few. Did they strike out or did they hit a homerun? Read the book to find out.
  • Another great read!

    By 12toot
    I really enjoyed Chloe and Beck’s story. It was easy to read, a perfect vacation read. It’s amazing how things that happen in your childhood can affect how you live in your adulthood. Both Beck and Chloe had people in their lives that skewed what they expected or didn’t expect in having a long lasting relationship. Sometimes, it takes a wrench in a perfectly planned out life to make someone realize what they actually want out of life. That’s what happens to both Chloe and Beck.
