Overview

Corporate professional Eve O'Brien needs a crash course in parenting when her dearest friend Jacinta and her husband die, naming her sole guardian of their baby son Bailey. As if bright orange goo on her business shirts and terminal exhaustion aren't enough to deal with, Bailey's uncle shows up insisting on being part of his nephew's life.

Roguishly handsome with a devil-may-care attitude, Mike Wilcox is always first with a quip or a flirtatious smile. When he breezily suggests he move in with her temporarily, Eve sees no way to refuse, as the cottage in which she now lives has been left to Mike by his late brother.

On the surface, Mike seems like the perfect housemate. He's a successful chef, so Eve's diet goes from fast food to five star overnight, and he effortlessly takes on day-time care of his nephew, while working at a local restaurant in the evenings. But he wears muscle hugging T-shirts and makes the cottage seem like a home, things that appeal to Eve more than she cares to admit.

A lonely, neglected child, Eve has learned to rely only on herself, but soon having Mike around makes her want to believe things can be different. But how can she trust a man who's lived life by the seat of his pants to stick around for the long haul?

    Let's talk about Mike. Well Mike should be the bar for every gir

    Let's talk about Mike. Well Mike should be the bar for every girls dreams lol. He changes diapers, gets up in the middle of the night when the baby is crying, oh and he cooks! Also did I mention he's an Aussie ;) Yum! lol.




    The whole entire time I was reading I'm getting irritated at Eve cause she can't take anything at face value. Yes, I know she has issues, but hey we all have issues. I felt like the writer was trying to force so much psychology down my throat. 




    Overall, it was a good read, but there was just a little too much backstory. I wanted more of the present story between Mike and Eve. It felt like it was a story of several other people i.e. Jacinta and Derek; Derek and Mike's parents; Eve's relationship with her mother. There just wasn't enough romance between Mike and Eve. 




    I will probably read this again, it definitely is a cute PG13 read. 3 1/2 stars
