Kiss Me If You Can - Carly Phillips

I forgot what a fun story this was....it has such great laugh out loud moments in it mostly from the heroine's grandma....and such great swoony moments from the hero, Sam "Coop" Cooper.

Sam Cooper tried to be a cop like his father and older brother but because of an old injury he wasn't successful.  Instead, Coop is a crime reporter for The Daily Post in New York City.  It pays the bills but he would prefer to be a successful author.  When Coop is able to stop a robbery at a local jewelry story, he is rewarded with a ring of his choice, which he reluctantly takes.  This ends up earning him the title of The Most Eligible Bachelor on the online blog at his New York City newspaper and brings him a lot of unwanted attention.

When Lexie Davis sees the story about Coop on TV and eyes the ring he ends up with, she realizes it looks like the ring that matches the necklace that her Grandma Charlotte has.  With her grandma's 80th birthday coming up, Lexie wants to see if she can buy the ring off of Coop.  When Coop and Lexie first meet, sparks instantly fly.  When Lexie explains that she'd like to buy the ring from him, Coop is instantly curious because that is the second person who has expressed interest in the ring.  As Lexie and Coop realize that there is a past history to this ring, they both agree to investigate the ring's past.  Of course this means that they must spend more time together and quickly find themselves in each other's arms.  As the mystery unfolds, and romantic feelings quickly form, family secrets also come to the surface.  

This was a fun and entertaining ride.  I really loved the character of Coop.  He was sweet and caution, having been burned before but he was really drawn to Lexie.  Lexie lived her life based on certain things that she always thought were correct, but found herself questioning those things as secrets were exposed.  It took some changing in both of their lives, but these two finally got to their happy ending.  I also just adore Lexie's Grandma Charlotte and her best friend, Sylvia...those two were a hoot!  Overall, this was a fun and sexy story that I really enjoyed.
