Book Review: More than Sexy by Carly Phillips

One protective alpha male plus one curvy damsel in distress equals an instant attraction they can’t deny.

Billionaire nightclub owner Jason Dare doesn’t stand a chance. From the moment he lays eyes on the luscious blonde stuck on the side of the road and realizes she’s in danger, he goes from playboy to bodyguard.

Faith Lancaster’s sweet body won’t come to any harm on his watch. And watch Faith he does. He can’t take his eyes off her. Jason will stop at nothing to keep Faith safe. Even if it means moving her into his apartment and letting her into his once private life.

Hiding from her past, Faith has spent the last year building her candy business into a profitable company while keeping to herself and staying under the radar … until she meets the delicious Mr. Dare. Alpha and irresistible, he awakens desires she has long denied. It doesn’t take her long to succumb to his charms and fall hard for the man.

They both have their reasons for keeping things casual but when Faith’s past catches up with her, can Jason finally claim the woman meant to be his?

My Thoughts:

Jason is a nightclub owner with his two bests friends. Each of the men have a strict rule. Keep women as a fun one-night experience. Jason takes that to heart more than they do. With his family history and some painful past with friends, he’s not in the market for more loss. He makes that clear and is honest as he can be. Until he finds Faith Lancaster on the side of the road with her tire slashed.

Faith is a candy store owner in the market of increasing her business. With secrets of her own, which come out too quickly for my taste, she is wary of Jared. He has the need to protect and helps her with her tire. When he can’t stay away, he finds her store has been broken into. In protective mode, he insists she take his spare bedroom so he can protect her.

The story is a fast-paced story where he protects her until her troubles are over.

While the story was sexy and fun at times, I found it was too easy. Faith just lets a stranger move her to his apartment, lets him keep her under the guide of a bodyguard she doesn’t know, and lets him pay for upgrades to her store. Jared tells her his painful past way to easily for someone he doesn’t know. It just seemed way too easy for my taste but I did like the story.

I did enjoy that not only was there a curvy model on the cover, but she was a curvy character. Kudos.
