The one-night stand who got away is back—and expecting…
Security entrepreneur Zachary Gatlin can't decide whether to kiss her senseless or give her the brush-off, but Sadie Adams insinuates herself into his business and he's hooked.
Sadie's on a mission to dig up dirt on Zach and disqualify him from a multimillion-dollar inheritance. Success means she'll be able to pay for her little sister's medical bills.
But when Zach once again proves irresistible to Sadie, she faces a fateful choice: follow her heart or save her sister. And then there's the child she's carrying—Zach's child…
What would you be willing to do for your family? What would you be willing to sacrifice for them? Your own happiness and the chance of true love?
This tender and heart-wrenching story paint such a gorgeous picture of the romance between Zach and Sadie. Their past history has set doubts in Zach's mind about Sadie's trustworthiness, but the attraction is strong and pull to each other unavoidable.
The scenes with Zach and Sadie are filled with passion and palpable searing emotions. They take it slow, time passes by, Zach knows she might have to leave at any time to be with her family, he knows there might not be a future for them, but he has no idea of the depth of her secrets and deceit.
I loved Zach and Sadie together. They both had such a deep, profound love for their families, and both of them have always been taking care of their loved ones. There were so many swoon worthy moments, just absolutely breathtakingly adorable and tender instances between them. Yet the deceit and lies were the constant in-between them, and Sadie's actions started to bother me about halfway through the tale. The deeper the emotions between Zach and Sadie came, the more her motivations and actions came to question in my mind.
Sadie is in a tough spot in her life, to save her family she has made some questionable choices, and for the second time.
I admired Zach through the tale, his character had such high standards, his manners, kindness, thoughtfulness, and protectiveness was admirable, and at the end his big heart and ability to forgive and forget convinced me of his amazing spirit.
A time-old tale told with a new and refreshing voice, about the choices we make in life and the consequences of them, about love, lies, and forgiveness, leaving me to wonder how far I would be willing to go to for the sake of my family
