There isn't a woman in town who's immune to the legendary Chandler charm. Yet so far single cop Rick Chandler has managed to fend off the marriage-minded advances of Yorkshire Falls' entire female population. A past mistake has taught him never to put his heart on the line ... until he answers the SOS of a real-life runaway bride. In spite of her pearly gown and tiara, Kendall Sutton vows to never wed- which makes her the ideal pretend lover who can ward off Rick's legion of admirers. When their passionate charade flames into the real thing, Rick is suddenly thinking about two words that spell forever after. But will Kendall ever say "I do?" Can a woman who's had it with weddings tie the knot with the town's most popular playboy?
Loved this! The Playboy is the 2nd book in the Chandler Brothers series by Carly Phillips. I liked the first one okay, but this one was so much better. It would be near impossible to not fall in love with this family.
Kendall Sutton isn’t the typical runaway bride. Yet, here she is stranded in her broken down car, wearing a wedding dress and looking every bit the part. Could this be anymore embarrassing? I mean she’s not planning on staying forever, but she does need to get her aunts house on the market and get everything settled. She really doesn’t need to be a part of the town’s gossip. Officer Rick Chandler comes to her rescue and offers to give her a ride to her aunt’s house. He’s sexy, smart and easy to talk to. She instantly finds herself attracted, not that she’s interested. She is done with men and she doesn’t plant roots anywhere.
Live for the moment and move on…
Rick Chandler is the current target for their mother’s “marry my sons off” campaign. He was convinced that since his younger brother Roman just recently married his mom would call a cease, but boy was he wrong. As the cop of small town Yorkshire Falls it’s not unusual to be called for emergencies. All of a sudden these calls are initiated by lingerie clad women and no real emergency. This is getting old quick. When reporting to a real emergency call of a stranded motorist Rick thinks maybe his luck is turning around. Finding out that Kendall will only be in town for a short while could be the answer to his problems. They can fake an engagement to get the town’s women and his mother off his back. He doesn’t prepare for the feelings to become real or for the challenge he now faces in convincing Kendall to make a stand with him.
This book was heartwarming and sweet from beginning to end. I loved the little couple that lives in Aunt Crystal’s house. The townspeople are quirky and crazy, as well. You have a couple mean ones thrown in for reality’s sake. Add in Kendall’s teenage sister and Rick’s meddling mother and you get all kinds of drama. This book has it all and it’s fun to read!
