    When billionaire entrepreneur Michael "Shay" Shaylen

    When billionaire entrepreneur Michael "Shay" Shaylen becomes guardian to a baby boy, he knows there's only one woman who can teach him how to be a father—his ex-lover, child psychologist Juliana Cane. So he makes her a deal: if she gives him two months, he'll give her a boost in her career.

    She says yes. Suddenly, Juliana has everything she's ever wanted: a home, a child—Shay. But she knows this seductive situation is only temporary. Because even as desire burns between them—so do the reasons Juliana has to say goodbye….

    Shay was a risk taker, if it was dangerous he did it. Juliana was afraid that he would be killed and had to guard her heart. When Juliana left Shay years ago, she never thought he would show up at her door. Shay needed Juliana to teach him how to be a parent. As Shay stops all his adventures to protect Mickey, Juliana realizes that her reasons for leaving him are disappearing. Will they be able to reignite the passion they had for each other? Or will they walk away from each other?

    I really enjoyed this book.  The dynamics between Juliana and Michael, or should I say Shay and Ju, were so intense.  Two people with pain and regret from their previous relationship.  But when Shay needed her, Ju helped without question.  They promised to put the past behind them but found that it was impossible.  Ju helped Shay to realize that he could still be the "Courage" in the relationship and could embrace the white picket fence that scared him before.  And Shay helped Ju realize that loving someone is worth the fear of losing them.  Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    When Shay becomes guardian to a baby boy, he sets off to find his ex girlfriend, Juliana Cane and offer her the job that will bring this two ex-lovers back together. As a child psychologist, Juliana is willing to help Shay, as long as he helps her with her career by letting her document his experience as a new father for a parenting book. With nothing to lose, Shay accepts and Juliana moves to his house where she starts teaching him methods on how to become a good father for little Michael. As they start to relieve what they had before they broke up, they both start to wonder if maybe they can give each other a second chance. Everyone has secrets and painful pasts, and these two have suffered ever since they broke up. Juliana marries only to discover that she is unable to carry a baby, so she divorces and dedicates herself to her career in helping others. On the other hand, Shay thrives in his career along side his two best friends, but it is their dream that ends up killing them and living Shay with their baby. 

    As the story unfolds, it's evident that both Shay and Juliana have a lot to decide and learn. Not only does Shay is learning to become a father, but he is also learning how to let go of the things that he loves the most. Having a rough past with babies, Juliana finds herself able to connect with little Michael and she is able to have what she always wanted to have and that is a baby, at least for a short time. What I liked about the story was seeing how the characters grow and learned from each other. It taught them both how to let go of their past and move forward. I liked the romance and their connection and it made the story that much enjoyable to read. The ending was great and it was very well-written. I would recommend this book to everyone that wants to enjoy a good romance novel about second chances.
