Review: Kiss Me If You Can by Carly Phillips

First line: Sam Cooper's stomach grumbled at the sight of the blue-and-yellow umbrellas shading his favorite hot dog stand from the blazing sun.

From the back cover: Sam Cooper ("Coop") has just become the most eligible bachelor in New York City. Now that he has foiled a jewelry-store robbery and has been rewarded with the ring of choice, single women all over the city are fawning over the crime reporter. but Coop isn't interested in the admirers sending racy underwear his way. His attention is centered solely on Lexis Davis, the only woman in the city who claims not to be interested in his bachelor status.

Instead, free-spirited Lexie is interested in Coop's antique ring, and its - potentially scandalous - history in her family. But Coop is quickly becoming more than just her route to the ring. When his investigation starts to uncover the truth, will she trust her heart - and her family secrets - to this most eligible bachelor?

My thoughts: I always love reading books by Carly Phillips - they are light and fun and filled with some steamy romance. They are also books that can be devoured in the course of an afternoon. Kiss My If You Can fits this and more - this time a bit of a mystery is involved. While the mystery is a light one and it's pretty clear who stole the ring early on, it is an important part of the book because it allows Lexis and Coop to come together, figure out what is important to them and see if things between them can be sustainable. There are many funny scenes between Coop and Lexis but also some that are very hot. And then there are the scenes that involve Lexie's grandmother, Charlotte, and her friend, Sylvia, which are at times laugh-out-loud funny. Carly Phillips's take on the most eligible bachelor concept is fun and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. The teaser at the end of Kiss Me If You Can strongly hints at who the next bachelor in the limelight will be.  I can't wait to read the next Bachelor book - and hope there are more to come.
