Overview

Cinderella and Prince Charming never had to consider the welfare of their children

When widower Tyler Fitzpatrick meets Annie Barnes at his daughter's school, his libido goes tilt. The sexy single mother is everything he and his grieving little girl need. Unfortunately, Annie flatly refuses his dinner invitation. She wants a husband and a father for her son--not just a boyfriend. And the last time she checked, wealthy, summa-cum-laude lawyers didn't marry high-school-drop-out housekeepers.

Tyler concedes there's a vast difference between their experiences and lifestyles. Still, he's inexplicably drawn to the impoverished young woman--even though her little boy reminds Tyler of an underprivileged past he'd rather forget. While becoming better acquainted, he offers Annie a job caring for his daughter and home in Redemption, PA. He also proposes a Parent Pact--an agreement to become role models to each other's child and to fill one another's needs as single parents while they continue to search for true love.

Accepting Tyler's offer would solve a lot of Annie's problems. However, surrendering to her weak-in-the-knees attraction to the irresistible widower could very well leave her and her son heartbroken. Yet, when circumstances threaten her ability to feed her child, Annie reluctantly agrees to the pact, making it clear she has no desire for Tyler to fill her so-called needs in bed. It's a bald-faced lie, but she knows the man's desperation to give his daughter the nurturing she needs will compel him to accept a purely platonic relationship.

Now, Annie's only problem is resisting the overwhelming temptation to let sin-in-a-tailored-suit Tyler seduce her.

Great book, although I wish I had known it was book 3 in a series. I would have read the other ones first. But still great as a stand alone novel.

Quick read. Loved the plot.

Well drawn out characters, a bit of a " usual" romance but well written, nonetheless. Characters welll srawn out, with realistic goals and desires and a happy ending for them and a possible secondary spinoff romance with the secondary characters.

I enjoy and rely on the reviews others write. Their thoughts and opinions help me weed out the ones I don't want to read. So thank you to all who take time to write specifics. Of course, I will still come to my own conclusions.

Cute twist on the rich man meets poor woman and he falls in love with her and her son who is the same age as his daughter. I like Laurie Kellogg's writing and spin.

I enjoyed the storyline. Good length. Annie was a nicely developed character. Tylers background wasnt clear for awhile. His character seemed almost arrogant and a pushover all at the same time. But its worth the read.

Lots of love and humor. A rich lawyer forgot where he came from and a poor lady thinks shes not good enough for him.
