All Dr. Stuart Thorpe, cardiologist extraodinaire, must do is not have a heart attack while watching his six month old niece for a few hours. One of his chores is to take little Bree to Providence Photography for her baby pictures to be taken. The photographer is Kim Cooper, a former neighbor of his. Stuart once fled his attraction to Kim because marriage was written all over her and he was not ready to commit. Kim thinks back to her art school crush days on her former neighbor. When he returns home, Stuart goes into cardiac arrest as the replacement baby sitter calls to inform him she is remaining in Mexico a little longer. Desperate for help with the toddler, Stuart turns to Kim. As Stuart and Kim watch Bree, that spark that did not quite ignite a few years ago now turns into a raging fire. Now if they can only commit to a permanent relationship after the matchmaking infant returns to his mommy. Though it is difficult to accept how helpless Stuart is with his niece, readers need to move on if they want to enjoy an engaging contemporary romance. Kim is a wonderful lead character while the audience will salivate and scorn Stuart.
