Product Description

The second novel in New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy’s sizzling series about three powerhouse sisters and the men who would have their hearts
People say the youngest child has it easy, but nothing can be further from the truth. Unlike my two sisters, Violet and Lily, I’m never in the limelight. I just work my butt off for Fleur Cosmetics and get little to no thanks for it. I’ve been pushed too far one too many times, and I’m finally brave enough to do something about it.
Maybe my newfound courage has something to do with the amazing pink and white diamond necklace I wear to the party in Cannes. The instant those dazzling heirloom jewels touch my skin, they excite some deep, aching need inside. And when that guy—that totally gorgeous guy—locks eyes with me, I know this nice girl is going to be naughty.
For once it’s my turn. My turn to say no to my father, to outshine my sisters, to walk away from it all—straight into the arms of a mysterious stranger. But what if Caden is much more than I bargained for? Sure, he makes me feel sexy and free in a way I never have before, but there’s something else I can’t quite place—something dangerous. Maybe our “chance” meeting wasn’t so random. Maybe he was looking for me for a reason. Whatever his motive, there’s no going back now.
And maybe I don’t want to.

: 3.5 stars--STEALING ROSE is the second installment in Monica Murphy’s new adult, contemporary The Fowler Sisters erotic romance series focusing on the three sisters-Violet, Rose and Lily Fowler-heirs to the Fleur Cosmetics Company. This is the younger Fowler Sister- Rose Fowler and Caden Kingsley’s storyline. STEALING ROSE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but saying that I would have liked to see more of Forrest Fowler (the sisters’s father) and his new lover Pilar-the bane of the Fowler Sisters existence-the relationship is important to the understanding of the sisters’s emotional upheaval.

Similar in nature to OWNING VIOLET (Book 1) STEALING ROSE focuses on a ruse against one of the Fowler sisters-in this case-Rose Fowler. Caden Kingsley is a man determined to get what he wants but falling in love is the last thing on his mind. Caden flirts and seduces his way into Rose’s bed and her heart all the while keeping his eye on the ultimate prize. Caden is a professional thief and Rose has something he needs and wants. With the Fowler family matriarch hosting a Fleur Cosmetics event in London, England Caden finds himself drawn to the youngest Fowler sister even though he had targeted her older sister Lily in a game of winner takes all.

Rose is determined to leave Fleur Cosmetics. Her sense of self worth and ability to succeed has been undermined by her father’s newest relationship. As the youngest daughter, Rose feels displaced in her father’s heart; his acceptance of her choices is less than comforting when his own choices have placed his daughters in a precarious position within the company.

The relationship between Caden and Rose is quick to develop. Rose is immediately entranced by Caden’s good looks and charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars caden 4 March 2015
By andrewsheath - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
caden is one of those men who appreciates a woman with an appetite, "she drank at least three beers, maybe four, and she consumed the bloodiest steak I've seen in a long-a** time, like she was one of the guys. It was sexy as eff." Caden is one of those men that like to try and get a rise out of their woman, "you don't usually wear panties," he drawls, and I want to punch him. Or kiss him. Take your pick." What I loved most about him was how wild that boy got in the bedroom, "marking me like some sort of primitive beast, it had been all sorts of hot. "I, uh, got a little carried away there for a moment," he admits, his gaze lifting to meet mine." Although I liked this book Rose and Caden had nothing on Violet and Ryder. I can't wait to see who's going to tame Lily

5.0 out of 5 stars Stealing Rose stole the show.. I thought Violet was my fav, well Rose stole my heart. This is a KEEPER!! 4 March 2015

***A gifted copy was provided by the publisher for an honest review***

Monica Murphy has written a fantastic trilogy –known as Fowler Sisters- and this is book #2 which is Rose’s book called Stealing Rose.
Rose Fowler is the youngest of the family, at twenty-two, Rose if feeling a little lost in the mix. She feels unappreciated, unloved and undervalued. In Cannes for the debut of her family documentary, Fleur Cosmetics, her world is about to be titled on is axis when a tall stranger appears and then just as quickly disappears.

Caden is at the festival to steal the expensive one of a kind necklace that is on Rose’s neck but the allure of her beauty and the easy way when they talk has Caden making him double guess himself. And after one night with a wild Rose has Caden so hooked and his being in Cannes wasn’t a mistake; his encounter with Rose wasn’t one of chance- it was all set up. But the sparks he felt were real and when they run into each other in London, now the chase is on and has a whole new purpose between them.

Rose is deciding what she wants to do with her life; she knows one thing is clear; she wants Caden. She can’t deny the way her body reacts to his and how his dirty words turn her on like no other. For the first time, Rose is being reckless and putting her own wants and desires first.
The start of the book is somewhat slow; that did happen in book 1 so I think this may be how the series is. It gives the reader a chance to see how the sisters are and give us background in the characters before the book amps up and starts going full pace. I like the pace and I like how we, as the reader, gets to see all the players in essence and know what is going on.
There were some real UH OH moments in the book-Some moments were I was like “OMG, you did not bring back that “witch?” or “what is going on, why did you do this to them?” moments but as the reader, you have to sit back and take the ride to get to the end and it was a great ride. I may not have fully understood but Caden and Rose made this book. I loved them and I got them as characters. He was the guy that I felt had that promise- Rose was the heroine who started off as lost and in the end was found because she had that feeling of knowing who she belonged to. Just know there is a wicked witch making reappearance in this book and possibly a *blessed* event.

Do I like this book-Love It

Will I read book 3?- OMG YES- Cannot wait for Lily’s book

My rating: 5.0 stars *****

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great installment... 4 March 2015
By Laura H - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 Stars

Stealing Rose is the second book in the Fowler Sister’s trilogy. Rose Fowler is the youngest of the three sisters. She is trying to find her way in the world, always being overshadowed by her sisters. Rose is bitter and upset about her father’s girlfriend Pilar (we met her in the first book and didn’t like her – or at least I didn’t.)

Rose is in Cannes for a movie premiere of a documentary about Fleur Cosmetics. Her dress is daring and the necklace she has on is worth millions. She is attracting unwanted attention until Caden Kingsley saves her.
Caden is a mystery and we slowly learn more about him. The more I learned about Caden, the more I liked him and felt sorry for him. Deep down he’s a good person, he’s just been forced to fight to survive in his world. He doesn’t have anyone close to him and has to keep it that way to survive. Through some interesting circumstances, he and Rose are pulled together. What starts out as purely physical for the two of them turns into more.

I loved these characters. I wanted to hug them both and tell them it would be ok. I wanted to help them through their problems. They are real and while Rose’s problems may seem small and inconsequential at times, they were huge to her because of her traits and what she believed in. Caden’s problems were huge and I wanted to help him dig out of them and be a good man for Rose.
The chemistry is off the charts with these two. I felt their feelings for each other grow and I rooted for them to be together. While we know that Rose will find out Caden’s secret, it’s not the way you would normally think it happens and for that I was glad.

I liked this book but missed the twists and turns that Owning Violet gave me. Maybe it’s because these characters and their story didn’t lend itself to those twists and turns but, it was still an amazing book.

We don’t hear from Pilar at all which I was happy about. We hear about what’s going on with her but not from her character – I’m so not a fan. We did hear from Lily in the end and I really liked her. Her book is next in the series and I can’t wait for it.

Overall 4.5 stars because I missed the suspense from Owning Violet but I did like Rose and Caden just as much as I liked Violet and Ryder.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's really super HOT... that elevator scene... it was just hot, hot, hot, HOT!! 11 May 2015
By Red25 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved Owning Violet, so I was really excited to read Rose's story and it did not surprise me that I loved her story!! I really enjoyed getting into Rose's head and seeing how different she was, but in some ways she was the same as Violet. It was an entertaining, fantastic book and I completely loved it!!

I have to say that at first, I wasn't too sure about Caden, I didn't really like the first glimpse we got into his head. He just seemed like an arrogant jerk, but I decided to give him a chance and the benefit of the doubt. It didn't take him long before he had me swooning and loving him! He turned out to be an awesome hero. Caden is possessive, caring, very take-charge, and man, oh man, can he talk dirty! Caden is definitely one hot alpha and I have no doubts he'll steal your heart like he did mine!

Rose had a big personality in Owning Violet and you will see that side of her, but there is a lot more to her. She's strong, but a little vulnerable and confused, she's sweet, passionate, and has a big heart. I loved her character!

Stealing Rose won't make your heart hurt as much as it did in the first book, but it will definitely pinch it. It's so HOT and beautiful and funny. I laughed quite a bit, smiled a lot, and teared up a little. I was very happy with how it turned out, and I wouldn't change anything--I just loved it. Once again, it's also really super HOT... that elevator scene... it was just hot, hot, hot, HOT!!

Stealing Rose is a standalone, it's told from Caden and Rose's POV, and they have a wonderful HEA ending! I love this series and I can't wait to read Lily's book!

4 of 5 stars

Rose Fowler is the youngest of the three Fowler sisters, whose family legacy is the Fleur Cosmetics business empire. As the youngest Fowler sister, Rose struggles to find her place within Fleur Cosmetics. No one takes Rose’s efforts within the company seriously—least of all, her father. Rose is treated as merely a “figure-head” and not a valued, integral part of the company like her sister, Violet.

With the unwelcomed presence & impending promotion of her nemesis and future step-mother, Pillar, Rose feels even more oppressed than ever. A hasty decision to resign from the company has Rose fleeing to her sister Violet’s side in London, in search of a much desired escape from her life. Not long after arriving in London, Rose finds the escape she’s been searching for in the arms of the mysterious Caden Kingsley.

Unbeknownst to Rose, Caden is a thief and con man, interested in stealing the highly-coveted “Poppy necklace” that is currently in Rose’s possession. But as Caden’s time with Rose goes from days to weeks, he finds himself falling hard & fast for the beguiling Rose Fowler--leaving him not only confused about his feelings but also questioning whether it’s the necklace or Rose that Caden truly desires.

The heated affair between Rose & Caden eventually evolves into something more, leaving them both wondering if their “relationship” could possibly survive outside the self-imposed sex bubble that they had locked themselves within. Although Caden wants nothing more than to tell Rose the truth, he fears that she'll never be able to forgive him. Is it even possible for Rose to look past his thieving ways and see the man he wants to become?

On the surface, Caden reminds me a lot of Violet’s fiancé, Ryder Mckay. Like Ryder, Caden’s relationship with one of the Fowler sisters began with deceit and grew out of a desire to further his own agenda. But that’s where the similarities end. Unlike Ryder, Caden does not have the same dominant personality. He may be just as insatiable in bed, but Caden is not interested in a power play with Rose.

Right from the start, Rose & Caden's “relationship”(aka, sexual encounters) was about mutual gratification and escape. They were strangers that found solace in each other’s arms. Rose & Caden didn’t share their innermost thoughts or feelings. They simply “were.” They lost themselves in each other, pushing all outside demands from their thoughts. They escaped the realities of their worlds and savored every heated moment.

Despite the steamy sex scenes--of which there were many—I must admit that I felt more of a connection to Violet & Ryder in the first book than I did with Rose & Caden in this second. Perhaps that’s because Violet & Ryder are both strong forces all on their own and a dynamic pair when together. In contrast, Rose & Caden have a tendency to bend to the will of others. They float through life, taking the easy way out and allow others to make decisions for them. They do not push themselves to their full potential or strive to be the best that they can be.

I think, perhaps, that Rose & Caden each saw themselves in the other. This, along with their unspoken need to escape, is what ultimately drew the couple together. Wrapped in the security of each other’s arms, both Rose & Caden found the strength to truly be themselves. They let down their walls, and allowed the other in. Although Rose & Caden weren’t looking for love, love is exactly what they ended up finding!

I really enjoyed reading Rose & Caden's story, and l look forward to reading the third installment in this series that will focus on Lily, the oldest (and wildest) of the three Fowler sisters.
