Book Review: "Cross My Heart" by Carly Phillips
Lacey Kincaid is a classic New York success story. As the owner of Odd Jobs, she's gone from rags to riches?sort of. Because Lacey's harboring a secret -- she was born Lillian Dumont, and spent her childhood with a silver spoon in her mouth, until the deaths of her wealthy parents and the evil schemes of an abusive uncle forced her to take drast... more »ic measures. She'd never planned to return to her former life or her abandoned identity -- but when her childhood sweetheart, Ty, resurfaces and urges her to claim her rightful inheritance, she decides that maybe being the Dumont heiress wouldn't be so bad. Lacey's uncle doesn't see it that way, though -- and he's willing to do anything to stop her.
Now, it's up to Ty to protect Lacey before that silver spoon becomes a silver bullet. But if they live through this, the future's looking bright for this downtown guy and his brand-new uptown girl!
This is book one of a 2 part series revolving Ty, Hunder, and Lacey/Lilly. These three grew up together and share a secret. The secret is forced out by Lilly/Lacey's uncle trying to get her trust fund.
Ok that sounds like a cheesy beginning, but let me assure you - it is anything but cheesy. You get thrown into the story right away and you never look back. The stories with the three now-adults kept you interested in what is happening next. So enjoyable. It is one of those - hard to put down books.
It has been awhile since I have read Carly Phillips - once I read this book - I wonder to myself "Why?"
