Brought back together by a baby
It broke Dr. Bree Donovan's heart to end things with family-orientated surgeon Sean Latham, but marriage and kids are not for her. Only, now Sean is asking her to help care for his newborn nephew while his sister is in hospital, and Bree can't say no.
It's temporary, but as Bree experiences how rewarding family life can beand gives in to the passion she and Sean have always sharedis it possible for her to believe that this time around they really could have it all?

I've always liked reunion romances because the couples bring so much baggage into the new situation. Dr Bree Donovan is a bit of a perfectionist, dedicated to her job and an accomplished surfer in her private life. Her private life used to include the brother of her best friend, Dr Sean Latham. They were very much in love but once Bree realised their goals were not compatible, she kicked him to the kerb. Because he wanted a family and Bree couldn't see that fitting into her plans for her future. So when Bree and Sean's pregnant sister are in a car accident and the baby comes early, it's kind of a nightmare scenario for Bree. Sean has to care for the baby while his sister recovers and he thinks Bree should help out for his sister's peace of mind. So not only is she thrown into Sean's proximity, there is a baby, with all the needs and disruption that goes with a new born infant. It's very obvious from the first moment that Sean and Bree are still very much in love and the physical attraction is sparking on all cylinders. The only thing keeping them apart is Bree's stubborn determination that children will not fit into her life. I really enjoyed the interactions between Sean and Bree. They were a very real couple and it was easy to want to see them reach a happy compromise despite Bree's intransigence. She did annoy me a little which is why I couldn't give this a higher score. Overall it was a lovely story with a cast of characters you could believe in.
Where to begin? I loved it! There are so many things that I want to talk about. Maybe this one should come in pointers. 1. I loved the flow of the story 2. Loved the idea that there are times we, ourselves, do not know what we want 3. Babies! (I just love stories with babies) 4. The chemistry The story had a pace and stuck to it. Nowhere during it did it make me feel that maybe the things should happen slowly or just why is this not moving ahead already. That is a very important factor for me. Getting this right, an author ensures that I will read until the last word. It is a popular belief among many that one always knows what is best for them or what they want (or do not want). Thus showing that our deepest desires may be hidden by our insecurities was a plunge into psychology that I enjoyed. Anyway, who does not like a hero who knows he loves the special woman in his life and is not afraid to be vocal about his love? A man who shows his love in every way he knows? Sigh. This is a plus point for this book (As far as I am concerned) because for the most part, men believe it is God’s word to keep their feelings hidden. The most interesting aspect of the story for me was the existence of the baby and how Bree and Sean learned how to take care of a wee little human. How one baby can disrupt an entire household. I was all smiles at the antics of little Will and what he had these two adults do for him. The chemistry between the two was evident from the way they looked at each, interacted with each other or touched. The thing to note, however, is that it was not overdone. It felt all natural. I enjoyed.
4 1/2 STARS! Addicting! From page 1, you feel the deep love and conflict in this book … and it only gets better! Really enjoyed these characters and watching them fight their way back to each other. Bree Donovan is a talented ER doctor who lives her life in ways that challenge her and make her better at everything she does. She’s in love with surgeon Sean Latham … but she broke his heart when she ended their relationship a short time ago. They want totally different things in life, and she just doesn’t see how it could ever work out. Sean is still in love with Bree, and when his world takes a drastic turn, he comes to her for help. He is in charge of his infant nephew until his sister gets out of the hospital and needs Brees help taking care of him. They fumble their way through learning how to take care of a baby, and enjoy spending time together again. Sean wants nothing more than to get married and have a family with her, but Bree doesn’t think that life is for her. Will falling under Sean’s spell again, along with his adorable nephew’s, show Bree a different side of herself that she didn’t think was in there?
