Claiming his child…at any cost
A shocking fertility clinic mix up has resulted in Luca Moretti fathering a child with a woman he never met. There’s no way the CEO will walk away from his baby girl. But he has thirty days to convince her distractingly beautiful mother to do exactly what he wants.
Widow Claire Douglas is still reeling from the loss of her husband when she discovers a stranger has fathered her child. And that rich bachelor will stop at nothing to gain joint custody.
How can she possibly fight a man with such money and power…and a charm she can’t resist?
Interesting, different kind of set up in the story, somehow it sounds like the worst nightmare for anyone using a fertility clinic, I would imagine.
I loved the big, loud, curious, Italian family, how they just took their place in the novel, was outrageously fun.
And the whole story is filled with passion and abundant with love towards family. I enjoyed the characters, I enjoyed the beach life they were living, the Italian food they were consuming, and the joy of discovering an impossible dream come true. Luca is adorable with little Eva, they obviously enjoy each other and have the bond from the first moment they meet.
Claire and Luca have attraction, also from the first moment they meet. And that is rather awkward, since it is with their lawyers.
I liked that there was more to the story, for both of them, Luca and Claire, than what just meets the eye. There were old disappointments, hurt, pain, and sorrow, not with each other, but in both of their pasts. They both dealt with the issues on their own way, and shared with each other as they got to know each other. I liked how Claire stood up for herself, and seemed to get more steam under her wings as the story moved on. I wish there would have been just a bit more details into their relationship, little more details, to make it more believable.
An entertaining, fun, quick read, with some deeper issues to be dealt with, loving family to meddle in the affairs, and endless summer days at the warm beach
