Karma

KarmaOfficer Dare Barron has had a crush of Liza McKnight since he was a fifteen years old. He has been seeing her pop up every time she bails out her brother. He will find himself getting closer as he sets out to protect her.

Liza McKnight got used to the police waiting room as she got her brother out on a regular basis. She is very protective of her brother but wants him to get help. She will soon be pulled into more trouble than she can handle and will get her own kind of help with Dare.

Karma is the third book to the series Serendipity from Carly Phillips. I grabbed the book knowing it was the third book but as I was reading it I felt it was a standalone novel. The brothers connections were not lost in the book and you knew pretty much the history between the brothers whether it was in one sentence or one scene.

I could not get into the book in the very beginning but once I got through several more pages I got into the book. The interaction between the brothers was great and makes me want to read their stories. I liked Liza who was the caring one but was finally being taken care of, with the exception of her brother saving her that one time, by Dare. I liked Liza and Dare together. They weren’t instantly in love and it took some time and some trust.

The guilt behind the accidental death back when Dare was fifteen comes into play. Phillips tells the story of the accident well and puts in the guilt on both sides. The character Brian, the brother, is not such a bad guy that is once he comes clean and sobers up which is done with some help.

Karma will not be the last book I will be be reading from Carly Phillips.
