Product Description

The second novel in New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy’s sizzling series about three powerhouse sisters and the men who would have their hearts
 
People say the youngest child has it easy, but nothing can be further from the truth. Unlike my two sisters, Violet and Lily, I’m never in the limelight. I just work my butt off for Fleur Cosmetics and get little to no thanks for it. I’ve been pushed too far one too many times, and I’m finally brave enough to do something about it.
 
Maybe my newfound courage has something to do with the amazing pink and white diamond necklace I wear to the party in Cannes. The instant those dazzling heirloom jewels touch my skin, they excite some deep, aching need inside. And when that guy—that totally gorgeous guy—locks eyes with me, I know this nice girl is going to be naughty.
 
For once it’s my turn. My turn to say no to my father, to outshine my sisters, to walk away from it all—straight into the arms of a mysterious stranger. But what if Caden is much more than I bargained for? Sure, he makes me feel sexy and free in a way I never have before, but there’s something else I can’t quite place—something dangerous. Maybe our “chance” meeting wasn’t so random. Maybe he was looking for me for a reason. Whatever his motive, there’s no going back now.
 
And maybe I don’t want to.

Praise for Stealing Rose

Format: Kindle Edition
: 3.5 stars--STEALING ROSE is the second installment in Monica Murphy’s new adult, contemporary The Fowler Sisters erotic romance series focusing on the three sisters-Violet, Rose and Lily Fowler-heirs to the Fleur Cosmetics Company. This is the younger Fowler Sister- Rose Fowler and Caden Kingsley’s storyline. STEALING ROSE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but saying that I would have liked to see more of Forrest Fowler (the sisters’s father) and his new lover Pilar-the bane of the Fowler Sisters existence-the relationship is important to the understanding of the sisters’s emotional upheaval.

Similar in nature to OWNING VIOLET (Book 1) STEALING ROSE focuses on a ruse against one of the Fowler sisters-in this case-Rose Fowler. Caden Kingsley is a man determined to get what he wants but falling in love is the last thing on his mind. Caden flirts and seduces his way into Rose’s bed and her heart all the while keeping his eye on the ultimate prize. Caden is a professional thief and Rose has something he needs and wants. With the Fowler family matriarch hosting a Fleur Cosmetics event in London, England Caden finds himself drawn to the youngest Fowler sister even though he had targeted her older sister Lily in a game of winner takes all.

Rose is determined to leave Fleur Cosmetics. Her sense of self worth and ability to succeed has been undermined by her father’s newest relationship. As the youngest daughter, Rose feels displaced in her father’s heart; his acceptance of her choices is less than comforting when his own choices have placed his daughters in a precarious position within the company.

The relationship between Caden and Rose is quick to develop. Rose is immediately entranced by Caden’s good looks and charm.

4 of 5 stars

Rose Fowler is the youngest of the three Fowler sisters, whose family legacy is the Fleur Cosmetics business empire. As the youngest Fowler sister, Rose struggles to find her place within Fleur Cosmetics. No one takes Rose’s efforts within the company seriously—least of all, her father. Rose is treated as merely a “figure-head” and not a valued, integral part of the company like her sister, Violet.

With the unwelcomed presence & impending promotion of her nemesis and future step-mother, Pillar, Rose feels even more oppressed than ever. A hasty decision to resign from the company has Rose fleeing to her sister Violet’s side in London, in search of a much desired escape from her life. Not long after arriving in London, Rose finds the escape she’s been searching for in the arms of the mysterious Caden Kingsley.

Unbeknownst to Rose, Caden is a thief and con man, interested in stealing the highly-coveted “Poppy necklace” that is currently in Rose’s possession. But as Caden’s time with Rose goes from days to weeks, he finds himself falling hard & fast for the beguiling Rose Fowler--leaving him not only confused about his feelings but also questioning whether it’s the necklace or Rose that Caden truly desires.

The heated affair between Rose & Caden eventually evolves into something more, leaving them both wondering if their “relationship” could possibly survive outside the self-imposed sex bubble that they had locked themselves within. Although Caden wants nothing more than to tell Rose the truth, he fears that she'll never be able to forgive him. Is it even possible for Rose to look past his thieving ways and see the man he wants to become?

On the surface, Caden reminds me a lot of Violet’s fiancé, Ryder Mckay. Like Ryder, Caden’s relationship with one of the Fowler sisters began with deceit and grew out of a desire to further his own agenda. But that’s where the similarities end. Unlike Ryder, Caden does not have the same dominant personality. He may be just as insatiable in bed, but Caden is not interested in a power play with Rose.

Right from the start, Rose & Caden's “relationship”(aka, sexual encounters) was about mutual gratification and escape. They were strangers that found solace in each other’s arms. Rose & Caden didn’t share their innermost thoughts or feelings. They simply “were.” They lost themselves in each other, pushing all outside demands from their thoughts. They escaped the realities of their worlds and savored every heated moment.

Despite the steamy sex scenes--of which there were many—I must admit that I felt more of a connection to Violet & Ryder in the first book than I did with Rose & Caden in this second. Perhaps that’s because Violet & Ryder are both strong forces all on their own and a dynamic pair when together. In contrast, Rose & Caden have a tendency to bend to the will of others. They float through life, taking the easy way out and allow others to make decisions for them. They do not push themselves to their full potential or strive to be the best that they can be.

I think, perhaps, that Rose & Caden each saw themselves in the other. This, along with their unspoken need to escape, is what ultimately drew the couple together. Wrapped in the security of each other’s arms, both Rose & Caden found the strength to truly be themselves. They let down their walls, and allowed the other in. Although Rose & Caden weren’t looking for love, love is exactly what they ended up finding!

I really enjoyed reading Rose & Caden's story, and l look forward to reading the third installment in this series that will focus on Lily, the oldest (and wildest) of the three Fowler sisters.

Rose is the youngest of the Fowler sister. The one they keep everything from. She's Violet's baby even though Violet's just a few years older than her. Violet feels the need to take care of Rose even though Rose is an adult. Violet gives her advice, wether it's asked for it not.

Rose meets Caden at a party and sparks fly. There's an immediate attraction between the two. Caden brings out another side to Rose. A side that's carefree and young. She's twenty two but had too many responsibilities and works too much. Now that Pilar has joined Fouler things have changed and Rose is not sure about staying at her father's cosmetic company. She no longer enjoys things the way she use to. Once she meets Caden, it's like he's what she had been waiting for to really start living her life. He's the man that makes her things she's never felt before.

Rose has found out a secret about her mother and that grabbed me from the very beginning. I hate that Violet knows it and kept it from Rose. Plus Violet needs to really think before she opens her mouth and says anything to her little sister. I really wanted to slap Violet a few times in this book. All Violet seems to want is for Rose to stay on board the company and date someone she approves of.

I was happy to see Rose do what she wants and explores things with Caden. She and Caden have things in common. Caden is a thief who takes from the extremely wealthy for personal reasons. It doesn't make it right but that's how he justifies what he does. He gets with Rose for the wrong reason but things change for the both of them.

The letter Rose finds made me cry from beginning to end and a few pages after that. It was so heart felt and the most honest letter. I loved it. I also love that Lily steps up in this book and she starts to take care of Rose. She's there for her baby sister when Rose needs her the most. I love that they get a chance to bond with each other.

Loved the end. It was just perfect. I love Monica Murphy's books. They are full of so much emotions. Her books grab you from the very beginning and don't let you go until the end. I loved Owning Violet but this one beat Violet's book. I fell for Caden. Caden and Rose are perfect for each other. I can't wait for Lily's story. I highly recommend this book. If you haven't read Owning Violet, read it. You won't regret it. This is a great series. I preordered my copy of Stealing Rose & have preordered the next book.
5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect followup! Explosive & HOT!!! March 7 2015

The second book in the series was just as intriguing as the first. Rose Fowler, the youngest of the Fowler sisters has a lot to carry on her shoulders and she is questioning her very existence in her family. She is looking for her place in the family and is looking to be "seen" by those who matter most to her.
Caden Kingsley was on a mission! He was on a mission to get the prize jewel from Lily Fowler... Only Lily was not at the event and Rose was wearing it. Caden had to rework his plan and figure out how to get it from her. Unfortunately he did not think he would be attracted to her.
The chemistry between Lily and Caden taught them both many lessons. They never felt the pull towards anyone before in their life.
Seeing how Caden grew, but also seeing how Caden how to learn to adjust in his life was truly a great read. He grew as a man and person.
Ms Murphy excelled in this book & I truly loved this book! Can't wait to read the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stealing Rose stole the show.. I thought Violet was my fav, well Rose stole my heart. This is a KEEPER!! March 3 2015

***A gifted copy was provided by the publisher for an honest review***

Monica Murphy has written a fantastic trilogy –known as Fowler Sisters- and this is book #2 which is Rose’s book called Stealing Rose.
Rose Fowler is the youngest of the family, at twenty-two, Rose if feeling a little lost in the mix. She feels unappreciated, unloved and undervalued. In Cannes for the debut of her family documentary, Fleur Cosmetics, her world is about to be titled on is axis when a tall stranger appears and then just as quickly disappears.

Caden is at the festival to steal the expensive one of a kind necklace that is on Rose’s neck but the allure of her beauty and the easy way when they talk has Caden making him double guess himself. And after one night with a wild Rose has Caden so hooked and his being in Cannes wasn’t a mistake; his encounter with Rose wasn’t one of chance- it was all set up. But the sparks he felt were real and when they run into each other in London, now the chase is on and has a whole new purpose between them.

Rose is deciding what she wants to do with her life; she knows one thing is clear; she wants Caden. She can’t deny the way her body reacts to his and how his dirty words turn her on like no other. For the first time, Rose is being reckless and putting her own wants and desires first.
The start of the book is somewhat slow; that did happen in book 1 so I think this may be how the series is. It gives the reader a chance to see how the sisters are and give us background in the characters before the book amps up and starts going full pace. I like the pace and I like how we, as the reader, gets to see all the players in essence and know what is going on.
There were some real UH OH moments in the book-Some moments were I was like “OMG, you did not bring back that “witch?” or “what is going on, why did you do this to them?” moments but as the reader, you have to sit back and take the ride to get to the end and it was a great ride. I may not have fully understood but Caden and Rose made this book. I loved them and I got them as characters. He was the guy that I felt had that promise- Rose was the heroine who started off as lost and in the end was found because she had that feeling of knowing who she belonged to. Just know there is a wicked witch making reappearance in this book and possibly a *blessed* event.

Do I like this book-Love It

Will I read book 3?- OMG YES- Cannot wait for Lily’s book

My rating: 5.0 stars *****
