Nate Pearson is ridiculously handsome and wears the hell out of a suit and tie, but I've seen the parade of beautiful women leaving his apartment across the hall-a different one every time-and I want no part of it. When it comes to romance, I'm looking for something real, something that will last: the happily ever after.
As a divorce attorney, he loves to tell me there's no such thing.
As a wedding planner, I choose to disagree.
We disagree on almost everything, in fact. Everything except James Bond. The only time we really get along is when we're watching 007 flicks together, and I'll admit-he has rescued me from a disaster or five. So when one of the baton twirlers from his parade leaves a baby girl at his door with a note that says "I'll come back for her" and he begs me for help, I can't turn him down.
But it's a mistake.
Because watching him with his daughter, I start to see another side of Nate, a side that has my breath coming faster, my body craving his, my heart longing for him to change his mind about love and tell me there's a chance for us.
I don't want to be just another girl leaving his apartment in the morning.
I want to be the one he asks to stay.
I enjoyed this title. As always, it was well written and with characters that you find yourself both liking and relating to.
Nate is a divorce attorney, and he is jaded about love and all of the things that go with it, stating more than once that marriage ends in expensive divorce. Emme is a wedding planner...who sees love, and marriage a little differently.
Insert a baby Nate didn't know he had, and this is a book about the journey of a man who not only opens himself up to the love of a child, and being able to love that child but learning that being closed off to love is actually lonely, and results in him being seen by those around him, as a person he is not all that fond of and who comes across as cold.
I enjoyed this overall. It was romantic. I loved him much Nate paid attention, how he made things about Emme, how he listened to things that mattered to her as he became the person who wanted a relationship from the guy who wanted nothing to do with commitment of any kind.
The character cameo was wonderful. It's always great to see characters you loved from previous books, and this was a wonderful addition to the story.
For me, I wanted a little bit more of the Nate/Emme relationship prior to the arrival of the baby. There was not much, and you get a sense of who he was, and of their relationship, but it is told and not shown. While this didn't ruin the book for me, it was something that I wanted more of. For me, the catalyst of the relationship growing from friendship was Nate's daughter. And, while this happens, and is realistic, I wanted to see what they were before, to give an idea as to where they both started prior to the arrival of a baby on the porch.
I did enjoy this overall, the relationship was engaging and I enjoyed getting to know Nate, his daughter, and Emme.
I recommend this title.
