This Christmas, he'll meet his three babies for the first time...and desire their mother in a whole new way!
After a plane crash robs him of his memory, billionaire fighter Antonio Cavallari comes home for the holidays to find triplets--and their "mother"--waiting.
Antonio doesn't remember surrogate Caitlyn Hopewell, but he has triplets depending upon him.
Who else can he turn to except the woman raising his children...and making him burn with desire?
Caitlyn has longed for Antonio secretly for years.
Now she's living in his home, loving his babies, living the life with him she's always wanted.
But then Antonio's memory returns.
And the secrets he's forgotten will change everything...
This story has a lot interesting elements, the amnesia, being a surrogate mother to your sister's baby, MMA fights, and all of them brought something special into the tale.
The amnesia Antonio has, was well played out, the angst that it brought on, and the frustration and mood swings were believable. Antonio is a rather intense person, and come off cold, distant, and dominating. I wasn't convinced of his feelings towards Caitlyn, and it bothered me that she was the sister he had met first, but as soon as he met Vanessa, Caitlyn wasn't on his radar, until now, with amnesia, no Vanessa, and in need of a mother to his babies. There was just something off with him, that I couldn't connect with.
Caitlyn had adored Antonio since that first moment they met. She had been bitter and jealous that he chose her sister instead, and delighted to carry Antonio's baby, even as a surrogate mother - creepy! Now, he is back, and her feelings are flaming towards him. She is a virgin by choice, and rather anxious one, and now willing to have a relationship with Antonio, as soon as she gets over her timidity.
Caitlyn is a black and white person, either you are or you are not, there are no shades in between. That makes her decisions troubling and judgmental.
So, I had some issues with the story, even though, overall, the plot was interesting, and unique, it was mostly the characters I had a hard time understanding, 'getting' and connecting with. That might be the case 'it's me, not you' argument, and I will own that completely. But my opinion of the story is
