"Henry Beck, the gorgeous CEO of an advertising company, was in need of a new personal assistant. He expected HR to hire someone older, more experienced, maybe even with gray hair. Who he got instead was the beautiful, young, single mother - Claire Russell. A woman who he is having a hard time keeping his eyes off of...

Claire never expected her new boss to be the most gorgeous man she's ever laid eyes on. She also never expected him to be sweet to her two year old son, Ethan. But Henry is her boss and there is no future with him. Or so Claire thinks...

Will Henry and Claire be able to fight the obvious attraction between them? Will Henry's overbearing mother come between them? Or will a freak accident change their perspectives on life and what's most important..."



A perfect simple romance book! Especially for the beach right now :)

This is a pretty simple book with an office romance, but what made me really enjoy it is that the heroine had a little 2 year-old. I really love kids! And it's sad when men frown and avoid single mothers just because they're afraid of kids. Ok, I understand it. Kids are a major responsibility, but I like these stories that show us that sometimes men don't look away from a woman whose only mistake was to sleep with the wrong man who didn't have the balls to face the reality that he's going to have a child but instead leaves. Some of those women are really great mothers and good persons. And Henry recognized that in Claire.

This story kinda reminded me of The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton. Play by Play series was one of my first romance book and even though the series is too simple for my tastes now, I hold the memory of it close to my heart. The first book deals with a relationship with a single mother too.

It's similar to Jaci Burton books because it has a simple structure too. And it's HOT! It's a plain romance story with predictable plot and twists and it doesn't have something special to it. Ok, there is some character development but it's not anything deep. And that's why I gave this book 3 stars. It doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy it. This book is totally perfect for a light, maybe beach read when you need a book to take your mind of things (plus, the sea is close for when it gets hot :P). .

The characters are really good too, maybe a little too perfect, but they were fun, especially Henry and Sebastian together. Henry has the good looks and all but he's a workaholic type of guy. Totally sweet and cute with little Ethan. Nothing beats a guy that loves kids. :)

Claire was the sweet and caring mother type. Nothing much to say about her, she was pretty reasonable and smart. Totally normal. Ok, maybe it was a little annoying how both her and Henry, just so happens, have the good looks. But fine, I'll go with the fantasy.

I liked that we also had some parts with Sebastian's POV and about his life so far. It's a good technique to give us a little taste of the character the author plans to write next about. To get us intrigued. She continues to do that in the next book with Quinn, and even though the second book was a little more boring and uneventful, I just HAD to take the third book because of Quinn. He's just too interesting. Damn you author!

Last I want to say that the book has enough grammar errors. Some were just very stupid, if I may say, for an American. But I like that Andria Large explained herself and wrote that she is just a person that had an idea in her head and want to write it. She didn't study English or anything, just had a desire to write and that is OK! I support that. But please, get someone to help out edit this. The author has a good style for a beginner and it can definitely grow into something more with time and more writing and work. So good luck!

Until next time,
