New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy begins a sexy new contemporary romance series—perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Emma Chase—that introduces three sisters born to wealth, raised to succeed, ready to love, destined to make waves.  I’ve moved through life doing what’s expected of me. I’m the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family’s business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I.   Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it’s for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary—perhaps even more so. He’s also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I’ve never felt before.   One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I’m hooked. Ryder’s like a powerful drug, and I’m an addict who doesn’t want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren’t pure, and I believe him. For once, I don’t care. I’m willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul.   My everything.  Praise for Owning Violet   “Owning Violet owned me from the first page to the last.

review

“You’re mine.” I mean it. For once in my life, I fucking mean it. Something-someone-is more valuable to me than any possession. An obsession.”

Ryder, what can I say about him? He had me riding an emotional roller coaster. I followed his ups and downs with him. I loved his vulnerability. For a male character, this one was written differently than I’d read before. He showed the possessive side, yet there was this unsure, soft, extremely sweet side to his demeanor that I loved.

Violet, she was a character I really enjoyed reading. It’s nice to read books where the female has seen tragedy, yet she doesn’t let it affect her. I love reading strong, confident female roles and Violet was definitely one of them.

I was intrigued to see where the author was going to take these two. Hot is an understatement when referencing the sex between these two. I thought I’d have to replace my Kindle at the end of this book. For my first Monica Murphy read, this one was great. I’m looking forward to many more from her and can’t wait to read Rose and Lily’s stories.
