Description

An all new STANDALONE second chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips.

Best friends.

First loves.

Can they find a second chance?

Andi wanted nothing more to marry prince charming and her best friend Kyle Davenport believed that would be him.

But after losing the girl of his dreams to the town bad boy, Kyle left Rosewood Bay and swore he’d never look back.

They say true love never dies, so when Kyle returns and discovers single mom Andi is in danger, he’ll do anything to break down the walls she’s built to protect her son, and to finally win her heart.  

Except that no happily-ever-after is won without a fight—and her ex-husband doesn’t like to lose.

    I loved this book and was hooked by page one. Andi and Kyle has been best friends and she broke his heart. She didn’t know how he felt about her, can they have a second Chance? He’s so good with her son and melted my heart. Stayed on edge, what will her ex-husband do? You’ll have to get the book to find out more. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I highly recommend this book.

    Another great one by Ms. Phillips! I love all her characters, especially Andi, Kyle and Nicky in this book. She makes them come alive in my mind. It’s a quick read but has a lot of tension and love. Nicky, her son, was such a great addition to this story to help bring the characters together again. It’s a great second chance book is the series that should not be missed. I loved reading about the characters getting the happy ending they truly deserved. Her ex was horrible and I was more than happy that he got what he deserved. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • A must read!!

    What a fantastic ending to this series!! It had the perfect amount of suspense to it, and had me sucked in the entire time. I loved Kyle and Andi together, and how Kyle knew exactly what Andi needed to completely heal. I would definitely one click this!

    This was an absolutely wonderful read from the very talented Carly Phillips. Andi was trying to live her life and become stronger, when her childhood best friend Kyle comes back in to her life. Andi has to deal with her past decisions. I love second chance romances and this was was not a disappointment. This was a great evening to this series.
  • Love a strong female lead!

    4.5 Stars This is book 4 in the Rosewood Bay series and it features Andi and Kyle. The pieces are finally starting to fit together for this family. Andi is great and I love how strong she is after leaving her abusive marriage. How great is it to be able to reconnect with your best friend after so many years apart! Kyle is amazing. These two are so great together. In the beginning I did have a hard time seeing the love between them. It felt a little robotic to me but that didn’t last long. Their relationship is a very mature one, not only because she is so focused on her independence that there’s little time for fun but because she's always looking for signs of him being like her ex. I have loved my time spent in Rosewood Bay with the fabulous story line and the amazing characters. I look forward to the next adventure with this author.
  • Wonderful Story!!!

    The Rosewood Bay series of books comes to an end with Dream, which is Andrea Harmon's story. Andi has been a part of the series from the very first book as her brother Kane married Halley Ward. I was so excited to finally get Andi's story and even move so to find out it would be a second chance romance. We had never actually known all the details of Andi's first marriage, but it had been implied her ex-husband was an abusive individual. I knew Andi was a strong woman, after seeing her stand up to her dad and his gambling, work 2 jobs to pay her bills, and raise her son Nicky with no help from his dad. I love she puts her son Nicky first always and while she still has some help from her dad and brother, she really has done it pretty much all on her own since her divorce. There was just something about Andi I loved from the very first time we met her in Fearless, and I only loved her more after reading Dream. When Kyle Davenport returns to town to teach at the elementary school, his only concern is running in to his once best friend Andrea Harmon. Of course the fact that her son is in his classroom means it is a given, and he is still very bitter about how she broke off their friendship all those years ago. Andi had no idea that Kyle had feelings that went belong friendship as he never made a move all those years ago. Especially once Andi was dating her now ex-husband Billy. I loved watching them reconnect as friends first before moving into a romantic relationship. Part of what I loved about Kyle and Andi together was the fact they were once again friends first. They had an undeniable chemistry that was strong from the moment they first saw each other again. I loved they really couldn't keep their hands off each other once they shared their initial kiss. They were so good together and I absolutely loved they included Nicky in so many of their outings. Kyle never questioned that Nicky would always come first for Andi, and I really loved that he seemed to fall in love with Nicky right along with Andi. I also loved that Kyle accepted that Andi was strong enough to handle anything that came along in her life, including dealing with her ex. I could tell it was killing him not to step up and protect Andi and Nicky, but I fell just a little be more in love with Kyle when he stood up for Andi's right to take care of the situation her way. Dream was the perfect wrap up to the amazing Rosewood Bay series from Carly Phillips. We got to spend time with each of the characters from the first 3 books, as everyone is family, and saw where each were now in their lives. I love revisiting favorite characters from a series and finding out what has happened since their story ended. While Dream was Andi and Kyle's story, it was fun to see each of the Ward sisters and where they were now. Dream was another emotional, sexy, and beautiful romance. I highly recommend Dream and the entire Rosewood Bay series to lovers of contemporary romances. Rating: 5 Stars (A+) Review copy provided by publisher
  • Another emotional visit to Rosewood Bay

    By Newberryd
    This is the most emotional of the Rosewood Bay stories, in my opinion. A physically abused wife and mother finds the strength to leave that relationship. After what she feels is a reflection of her poor judge of character, Andi doesn’t trust herself to make good choices in relationships. As a single mother she is focused on her child, not herself. When her childhood best friend and someone she rudely shoved out of her life returns home to Rosewood Bay, she is surprised to find out he is her son’s teacher. Can they be civil? Friends? Or maybe there is more chemistry than they once believed. Some pretty intense encounters leave them both questioning what is happening between them. Carly Phillips writes some of the most dynamic and realistic characters. They are not perfect and some have some pretty bad traits. Strong family ties remind us that we can love the people in our family even if we do not agree with the way they live their life. I enjoy reading books in a series for many reasons. One of them is getting caught up with other characters from earlier stories. Thank you for the updates on the sisters and their families.

    What a great story! I was so hooked from the very beginning and couldn’t get enough! This was a sweet, once were best friends turned lovers. After some bad mistakes in Andi’s life, she is trying to change that. Kyle Davenport returns to his home town for a job and Andi’s son just so happens to be his student. The storyline is great and intriguing. Andi and Kyle have this wonderful connection and add in Nicky the love able kid. Loved seeing all the other characters from the other books in the series as well. I’m so glad Andi got her HEA after all! Loved this book!
  • Heartwarming and emotional

    This was such a great story. So many emotions and real life drama. Andi was married to an abusive man. She dealt with physical, mental and emotional abuse while trying to protect her child from the same abuse. Two years ago she finally had enough and left. Although she had a family nearby, she never relied on them for any kind of support during this time. Her ex alienated her from all of her friends so when she finally regained her independence she was a loner. She feared getting into another relationship. This is so common in real life abuse situations. I felt the author portrayed this very well and realistic. Now, her best friend is back in town. Originally he wants nothing to do with her personally, but his feelings change the more time they spend together. Although it kills him to go slow and be cautious, he does and is. He knows he has to if they are ever to have a chance at a relationship that is more than friendship. I found this book very heartwarming and emotional to see them both grow, as individuals and as a couple. Her struggling with her fears and her need for independence while accepting that it's ok to ask for help and share the burden. Him with accepting her need for independence and proving that she can do anything but yet providing needed support.
  • Good second chance romance

    I really enjoyed Andi and Kyle's second chance at romance. When Andi pushed her best friend Kyle away all those years ago, she broke her own heart as well as his. Now that he's back in town, she'd love to have him back in her life, but will he be willing to let her back in? This was a great story of childhood best friends reconnecting. Kyle is able to pursue his feelings with Andi this time around and Andi feels things for Kyle she had never felt before. We get to catch up with the rest of the crew from this series as well which is fun since this is the last book of the series. The story was good I just wish it might have been a little longer. I feel like I really could have fallen more in love with these characters with a little more development. It was a really good read though and I'll be sad that we won't return to Rosewood Bay.
