Perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Emma Chase—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.

Stealing Rose is the second book in The Fowler Sisters series by Monica Murphy and follows the youngest Fowler sister Rose. I’ll be honest with you, when I first attempted to read Owning Violet I couldn’t get into it. I tried on three different occasions and each time I ended up putting the book down. I don’t know why because the story isn’t bad, the writing is engaging and steamy as hell. I just for some reason couldn’t get into it. Finally, one day I sat down opened it up and I swear it was like I picked up a different book and I completely devoured it. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood…I still have no clue what it was, but in the end I did enjoy the first book in the series which made me continue with the series. Stealing Rose is incredibly hot! Boy did I have to fan myself a few times. Not only does this story deliver Rose’s romantic struggles, but also keeps up a bit with areas of Violet’s life (allowing the reader to keep up with some of their favorite characters). Monica Murphy continues the series in dual POV which I absolutely adore.
I loved everything about Stealing Rose. The chemistry between Caden and Rose made my Kindle spark! Talk about steamy! I’m still blushing and fanning myself. I definitely enjoyed Rose’s story a bit more than Owning Violet, but I have officially fell in love with the series after this read. Caden meets Rose in Cannes and there is an immediate attraction between the two. One that is undeniable. Rose is going through a reflective stage, she’s trying to figure out her place in the Fowler family and within their family’s empire, Fleur Cosmetics. She feels underappreciated and due to recent developments her relationship with her father has turned sour. Enter Caden, a cup of tall, dark and handsome. He brings out the absolute best and worst in Rose. He pushes her buttons and drives her crazy in so many ways, but she can’t help the pull she feels to him. He makes Rose feel alive and frisky. She’s having fun and learning about herself in the process, but how much does she really know about him? Will his secret tear them apart or bring them closer together?
I couldn’t put this one down. What drew me into this series is how real these “heiress” characters feel. They’re wealthy, but they work their butts off to keep their family business running. They aren’t arrogant or greedy and Monica Murphy has made them “human.” You connect with them without feeling like they’re these privileged princesses. You can see that they all care for each other a great deal in their own ways. Violet annoyed me a bit in this book she was a bit judgmental and a bit of a hypocrite, but I understood and liked that at one point she’s called out on it. It’s actually a breath of fresh air to read about three sisters like Rose, Violet and Lily. After reading Stealing Rose, I cannot wait for Lily’s story. You are in for a treat with an ending that will tear you up in the best possible way.
I highly recommend this read to Erotica/Erotic Romance fans.
Happy Reading Lovelies xo
