She spent years building walls around her heart … but he plans to tear them down.

Gorgeous women pass through Kane Harmon’s beach town as reliably as the tides. He knows the type; shallow, slumming for the summer, enjoying the sun and the novelty before returning to their real lives. But Rosewood Bay and the garage he owns are Kane’s real life and he makes the most of it.
When Kane rescues Halley Ward from the side of the road, he’s determined to get to know the mysterious, solitary woman. She’s beautiful, wealthy, and the loneliest person on the beach. She says she isn’t interested in him—or anything outside of her painting and her bungalow. Kane knows a lie when he hears one. Soon, bringing the color back into her world is his life’s mission.

Until the past meets the present. Until their two worlds collide. Until it’s her turn to leave her black and white world behind and live in Kane’s, with its risks and love.

A Standalone Novel

    Good book with drama
  • Fearless

    By IPMPH
    The author knew how to bring the characters into play, a romance that has you turning the page and unable to close the book for the night. I can’t wait to read the next in the series. An author I would recommend.
  • Good read

    As someone with some serious walls I related all to well. Dysfunctional family’s... Dealing a loved one’s addiction; gambling, drugs, or a myriad of other things is something I think the majority of us deal with at one point or another. Good story, good characters.
  • Terrific!

    Great characters! Kane is so perfect and Halley is the fragile soul that doesn't begin to live until Kane reappears in her life. The extended families of these two characters are authentic. They are fun, supportive and round out the story. Can't wait to see what's in store for them.
  • Heartwarming romantic journey

    By Cali Jewel
    Heartwarming, emotional, sweet, fun, sexy and engaging romantic journey for two souls destined to be one yet to wounded to take the ultimate plunge. A Quick yet highly entertaining reading experience and wonderful escape. Kane Harmon is a hometown boy with a charm that is had to resist and a heart as big as the ocean. Halley Ward is a creative soul with a heartbreaking past and a need to hide in the dark where she feels safe. They are a sweet, passionate, interesting and easy to relate to couple that I could not get enough of and I am looking forward to reading more from Rosewood Bay.
  • Great start to this new series!!!

    By Devilwmn
    **Received ARC for a fair and honest review** Fearless is the first book in the Rosewood Bay series. This is Halley and Kane's story. I enjoyed this book, but it stagnated a few times where I needed to force myself to continue which is why I rated this book at 4 stars. Overall I did enjoy it, I enjoyed the storyline, Halley at times was a bit too weak of a character for me though, and I absolutely loved Kane. Halley and her sister Phoebe ended up in foster care when they were young because their father had been KIA while in Afghanistan and her mother turned to drugs. Unfortunately they were separated and didn't have the easiest time. When their Aunt Joy found them, they were already teenagers but took them in. While out driving Halley's auto breaks down and when she calls for a tow, a familiar face from high school is the one to show up. Once you get through the areas where the story stagnates, the story is enjoyable and moves, but Halley makes some bad decisions that really make you want to smack her and say what the heck is wrong with you. I like the premise for these stories and am very interested to see if Breathe unfolds a little smoother with less stagnation. Hope this helps. Happy Reading!!!
  • Fantastic Read

    There are so many things I want to say about this book. This is the first book in Carly Phillips Rosewood Bay series. It’s about the first sister Halley. The story line is fantastic. The characters and the setting. Fantastic. It’s about a man and a woman knowing they have to become fearless to win their future. So many feels. Because of things that happened in their past and in past relationships, Halley and Kane are two people who are afraid to love. They are tired of putting themselves out there only to get burned. Halley and Kane had went to high school together. Halley moved to town after being adopted by her aunt. Her horrible experiences while in foster care made her afraid of making any connections. After a devastating loss, Kane became withdrawn. Even despite this, he felt a connection to Halley. He felt he had to protect her from bullying. That it was his job to make sure she was okay. Fast forward to today. Kane who owns the local garage is called to pick up someone whose car has broken down. And who do you think it is? Yes, none other than Halley. He is taken in by her right away. He is persistent in his pursuit of her. She is reluctant because of her past. She knows she will not be able to put herself out there. But with Kane she knows it is different. She knows to win him and to win her future with him she will have to be Fearless. Loved seeing her get there and seeing how Kane supported her on her journey to happiness and security in his arms. Fantastic read!
  • A must read!!

    By sferguson105
    This was a fantastic read. Halley and Kane are both facing issues in their personal life, but bring out a fun side in each other. Halley is a bit shy and withdrawn at the beginning of the book, but she is still a strong heroine. Kane was sexy, and Halley seemed to bring out this sweet side of him. It had the perfect amount of drama, and after getting a glimpse at who the couple is for the next book, I can’t wait!! A great must read!!
