Jill Pierce’s life has never been easy. Then she discovers the father of her newborn daughter is not only married but dead. Jill’s not sure how she and her baby will survive until his parents make her an offer she can’t refuse–relocate to Cincinnati so they can help her. When Johnny, the baby’s sexy-as-sin paternal uncle, arrives to help her move, Jill knows her life could quickly become the perfect talk show episode.
When Johnny Browning is forced to move his dead brother’s mistress home, he’s floored by an instant attraction to the sassy young cocktail waitress. Unfortunately, denying his desire proves impossible, and after a month of frustration, denial gives way to a confession that he wants more than friendship. Despite his sincere interest, Jill is determined not to get involved with him. His only hope is to convince her he’s nothing like his brother. His plan is simple–show her love like she’s never known before.
Johnny’s intentions are clear, while Jill is determined to make better life choices. But if she’s not careful, he just might make the choice for her and build a life with someone else.
This should not be classed as erotica at all. Yes, there are some steamy scenes but not enough to justify that classification. As for the plot itself, the author jumped around a lot like she couldn’t figure out if she wanted a straight romance, an angsty read or drama. This book would have been much better in the hands of a good editor who could help the author polish the story. Overall I can’t justify reading this, it wasn’t the slightest bit entertaining.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
