Pam's Rating: 4 of 5 ⭐️

New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy begins a sexy new contemporary romance series—perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Emma Chase—that introduces three sisters born to wealth, raised to succeed, ready to love, destined to make waves.

"I’ve moved through life doing what’s expected of me. I’m the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family’s business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I.

Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it’s for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary—perhaps even more so. He’s also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I’ve never felt before.

One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I’m hooked. Ryder’s like a powerful drug, and I’m an addict who doesn’t want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren’t pure, and I believe him. For once, I don’t care. I’m willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul.

My everything."


Violet appears to be the calm, cool, collected business woman. As the middle daughter of the owner of Fleur Cosmetics she has to potential to be successful in her work. But when things turn sour with her long time boyfriend, she feels like she is in a freefall spin. Her calculated future is not turning out as she had hoped.

Ruthless Ryder has his sights on moving up the ranks at Fleur by any means necessary. When his rival finds himself no longer dating the bosses daughter it leave the doors wide open. Ryder plans to seduce Violet and take what Zachary has flaunted and lost. With hopes that Mr Fowler will take notice of his abilitiesas a businessman.

Looking for a distraction from her spiraling life Violet looks to Ryder for a quick fling to prove she is not the good girl everyone thinks. Ryder thinks his plan is working to a T. Neither of them expected the commanding connection that sparks when they give in to temptations. Commitment and love are not high on Ryder’s list of wants in life, but he soon realizes that he has a strong need to protect and care for her. Until he is forced to divulge his secrets to Violet and she is devastated in heartbreak all over again.

Can she move on, will her and Ryder be able to find their way back to each other?
I can’t wait for more of the Fowler sisters.
