Publisher's Summary

A tragic accident forced them together.
Will love turn them into a family? 


He's a loner. He's also volatile, wickedly hot and unforgiving.
Probably not the kind of man anyone should trust with an infant.
Definitely not the kind of man any woman should trust with her heart.
When Nash Ryan returned to town for the sake of his baby brother I thought I already understood who he was.
I also thought I was done giving my heart away until he proved otherwise.
But we don’t stand a chance.
Everything is ready to unravel.
And the secrets I’ve kept will be our undoing. 


This isn’t the first time I’ve known tragedy.
Maybe that’s why I’ve chosen a solitary life.
But my self-imposed exile ends when a terrible twist of fate makes me the guardian of my four-month-old brother.
Suddenly I’ve got a kid to raise and a family business to save and there’s no time for anything else.
That’s why Kathleen Doyle and I made this arrangement.
Once a skinny little girl who used to follow me around everywhere, she’s now a single mom with flaming hair, a killer body and too many responsibilities.
We told each other it was just physical.
We told each other there were no strings attached, no expectations.
We lied.
And the consequences will cost us.
But I’m not surrendering this new family without a battle.
Because in this life we might only get one chance to have it all....

Tearjerker but so sweet

When the worst happens to his dad and stepmom, there is nothing left for Nash but to come home and deal with the aftermath. But Nash didn't plan on becoming guardian to his months-old baby brother. Nor did he expect his reliance on Kathleen, the quiet girl from his past and is step-mom's cousin, to grow into something more. But Kathleen has her own demons re-emerging from the past.
His tearjerking store has very touching and sad moments laced with enough sinfully hot times.
In the audiobook, Brooke Bloomingdale does a great job with portraying the quirky, nerdy character of Kathleen. Alexander Cendese has away about his narration that brings out the rebellious nature of Nash. I definitely recommend both the book and the audiobook.

Just a little slow

Narration was excellent. But the romance lacked. Too much denial and pushing away. Loads of missed opportunities with the kids. But I do love Cora Brent and it was a good story overall with an excellent message!
