Faith Harrington knew coming back to her hometown would be hard but she had to start over. People were not overly friendly to her thanks to what her father had done but she was determined to make it work. She had not expected to encounter Ethan the bad boy that made her feel things still after ten years.
Ethan Barron was the bad boy in his youth and for the last ten years he had felt guilt over that time where he left his brothers on their own. He is back in his hometown hoping to start over with his family. He will be surprised with a half sister and find the one woman he had wanted for the last ten years.
Serendipity is the first book to the series Serendipity by Carly Phillips. I had read the third book of the series and liked it but I wasn’t completely into the story at first. For the first book I easily got into the story of Faith and Ethan.
This was a good intro to the series and about the brothers. You feel for Nash and Dare who were all but abandoned by Ethan when their parents were killed. Then again you feel for the eighteen year old Ethan who was carrying too much guilt and was considered a screw up. Faith had her own demons she had to face but she was able to get out of her situation alive mentally and have the determination to start over. Ethan and Faith were similar in the idea that they both needed a way to start over.
I really liked the addition of Tess. She was a handful for the brothers. I liked how Phillips made her exactly how a teenager with all that she went through would act. She also did a good job with the brothers and how they feel with their older brother, and how the town condemns Faith for what her father had done.
I am reading the second book next with Nash and Kelly. I am intrigued how their relationship will start as I have read the third book and already know the outcome of their story.
