Email this review


After a one-night stand with her lifelong crush, Erin Marsden finds her life complicated by an unwanted pregnancy, an unknown assailant and the unshakeable desire for a life with a man who’s convinced relationships, and Erin, are not for him.

Erin has spent her life following the rules and coloring inside the lines, content with her life as an assistant district attorney and related to half of the police force of Serendipity. But when infamous bad boy Cole Sanders comes back to town, she throws caution and her good-girl reputation to the wind when she falls in bed with him after her brother’s wedding. They’re both clear on the fact that it’s a one-time deal, but everything changes when someone takes a shot at Erin, and Cole decides to use his skills as an investigator and undercover cop to keep her safe, especially since their night together has some unintended consequences. Unwilling to leave her alone while she’s in danger, Cole moves in, and the two enter into a red-hot affair, while each tries to navigate how they feel and what they want. Life in Serendipity is complicated for Cole, who left when he was in high school after gaining notoriety as a troublemaker and whose father is determined to see the worst in him, despite Cole’s success in law enforcement. Cole is convinced he doesn’t deserve Erin and knows life as an undercover agent isn’t conducive to strong family ties. Erin is in love with Cole but knows he’s not the type to settle down. As the two work through their differences and personal insecurities, they must also maneuver hostile family members and a silent threat from an unknown enemy. Phillips’ newest installment of the popular Serendipity series, and second in the Serendipity’s Finest, revisits the Marsden family with the same romantic elements and scorching chemistry Phillips is famous for. Fans will be thrilled with bad-boy alpha-male Cole as counterpoint to good-girl Erin, as well as the requisite and fun Serendipity cameos.

A sexy, satisfying romance, Serendipity style.
