Burned by love and grieving over his brother’s death, sexy billionaire CEO Carter Anderson wants nothing more than to protect his family. So when beautiful and unassuming physical therapist Gwen Radley shows up at the funeral, pregnant with his brother’s baby, Carter’s certain she wants an interest in the Anderson empire—and both his suspicion and attraction grow when circumstances force Gwen to move into his family’s mansion.
An orphan, Gwen’s never wanted anything more than a family, and she finds in the Andersons a place she and her baby might belong. When Gwen’s therapy expertise leads to long hours of intense, late-night collaboration on a lucrative project, the attraction between her and Carter leads to a night of white-hot passion. But Carter’s distrust remains, leading them both to wonder if he will ever embrace his brother’s baby—or the love that’s blooming between them.
This book was a pleasure to read, not heavy on the steamy sex more story orientated but a lovely heart warming read.
The opening to this book really touched me, where Gwen wanted to place the ultrasound scan picture in the casket with Ben, I had a little teary eyed moment there.
The plot is not too far fetched and I have read other stories with a similar layout, but the characters were well developed and had a good chemistry together. I found them frustrating at times but that was all part of the story.
Gwen is the best character along with Mr Anderson (senior) in this book, I just fell for there relationship right from the start. The way Gwen took the time to find the man he used to be before his stroke was lovely, there was no sugar coating the way she conversed with him either, Gwen was straight talking and it seemed to pull him out of the fog he was living in, I loved that aspect of this story.
Carter is a bit of a douche for the most part of the book but he does redeem his self at the end.
Overall a good read and at the very small price of 36p (at the time of posting) why not give it a read.
