Fall in love with the Wards…

From troubled teen to successful general contractor, Jake Nichols turned his life around from his time in foster care. Divorced and single, he juggles his time between his daughter and his work. Next on his agenda, a new project that is his chance to prove his worth at the job he loves. Except he never anticipates that the only girl he's ever loved and lost as a teen is now a grown and beautiful woman in charge of the project.

Phoebe Ward has survived and conquered a painful past that includes foster care and becoming a teenaged mom. She wants nothing more than to focus on the present but it’s hard when she looks into the eyes of her son, knowing she’s tried and failed to find his father. She’s resigned herself to raising him alone with the help of her family… Until a client meeting brings her face to face with her first love. A boy… now a sexy man she thought she’d never see again … and the father of her child.

So many years have gone by and both of their lives have changed drastically. Will they be able to put the past behind them and find the second chance they both deserve?


Reunited when they least expect it! With the second book in her Rosewood Bay series, Carly Phillips brings us Phoebe & Jake … a second chance at love story featuring a pair of childhood sweethearts who had no say in their split all those years ago and who find themselves feeling those same old feelings as soon as they set eyes on each other. She had a son he never even knew about … he lived through things she shudders to think about … but together again, they just might be able to rectify the mistakes and short changes of the past. This was a fast and easy read. A little light on complications in the current story line, but just enough strife to keep us tied into their relationship until the very end. I’m enjoying this series a lot, and look forward to the next book!

Single mom Phoebe Ward has a great support system with her family, but she’s never gotten over the fact that her son has had to grow up without knowing his father. She and her first love were separated before she learned she was pregnant, and although she tried to track him down, she was never able to find him. Imagine her surprise when she walks into a renovation site she’s supposed to be overseeing, and there he is … all grown up and sexy as ever!

Contractor Jake Nichols was dealt a tough hand in life, and though he let it overwhelm him a few times as he grew up, he eventually got on the straight and narrow and lucked into being mentored by a great man who taught him the tools of his trade and how to be a good person. He’s single with a precociously adorable daughter that he adores. When Phoebe walks onto his job site, he’s blown away … and happier than you can even imagine to see her!
