Case Thomas is always in control whether its on the basketball court, the lab where he works, or in his love life. All that changes when his parents pass away and Case is thrown into fatherhood when he becomes temporary guardian to two adorable twin toddlers. Weeks later, Case must decide if he's ready to become a father to these children, or give them up. Then he meets Gabbie Vaulst. Gabbie is amazing with the kids, owns her own business, and has all the right curves in all the right places. She can tell Case is attracted to her, but does he really love her or is he just settling for a surrogate Mom who can wrangle his new kids? Knowing that she's falling in love with him, she chooses to push him away until his world straightens out. Can Case prove to Gabbie, and himself, that his feelings are real? Or is this sudden family too much for both of them to handle? The odds, as well as members of their past who've come out of the woodwork, are against them, but when kids are involved, all bets are off.

I was blown away by this book. Absolutely enthralled. My intent was to read the first page or two just to see if I'd like it, but I couldn't stop reading until I was finished. The blurb does a pretty good job summing it up, so I won't rehash it. The author gets right into the meat of the story by introducing the main characters right off the bat. In the very first scene, we can feel Case's frustration as he struggles to handle two rambunctious two-year-olds. Gabbie, a seasoned child-care professional, offers help and enrollment in her daycare center, and the story kicks off from there. Case doesn't struggle with the decision to keep his family together as much as I suspected when I read the blurb. His apprehension comes more from his fear of failure rather than a fear of responsibility. He has a great sense of family, honor, and compassion. There is no doubt in the reader's mind that Case can handle the challenge of raising the children. Gabbie is also certain Case can handle his new responsibilities, but she recognizes he'll need help in order to do so. She gives him a hand-up without taking over, thus giving Case confidence in his own abilities. The romance... oh, the romance! Case and Gabbie have an instant connection, though both are reluctant to jump headlong into a relationship. Their feelings for each other cannot be denied, but a complicated friendship, challenges at Case's job, family problems, and a blast from Gabbie's past are roadblocks on their way to happiness.  Here's what I love about this book... Gabbie and Case are two intelligent, strong, realistic characters I loved rooting for. In many romance novels, the obstacles keeping the hero and heroine apart seem contrived, but not in this book. There isn't a single plot point in this story I could pick apart and criticize. The kids are adorable, often providing comic relief when things get too heavy. This book is the perfect mix of romance, heartbreak, humor, and hope. Highly, highly recommended.

The Guardian's Heart is a story of love, loss and family that will pull at your heartstrings. Author Michel Prince weaves an emotional tale of a young man who becomes the guardian of his two year old twin sister and brother after the tragic death of their parents in a car accident.  Case Thomas was enjoying his last year in college, but his carefree world was turned upside down with the death of his parents. Case struggles with the daily responsibilities of being the caretaker to his siblings, but a chance meeting at a Walgreens brings an angel named Gabbie Vaulst to his aid.  Gabbie Vaulst has had her share of problems in life, she had her heartbroken by a high school boyfriend, and now she plays it safe and guards her heart. She runs a successful daycare center, and when she happens upon sexy Case Thomas struggling to handle the twins, she knows she has to step in and help him out.  Case and Gabbie are attracted to each other but their relationship and family dynamic is tested when people from their past threaten their future.  The Guardian's Heart will draw you into Case and Gabbie's story and take you on an emotional roller coaster ride as their love story unfolds. Their ability to find love and maintain a family structure for the twins while overcoming difficult personal obstacles is heartwarming and inspirational. You can't help but feel for the Thomas family and cheer on Case and Gabbie's fledgling relationship. Author Michel Prince does a wonderful job of pulling out all the stops as the reader becomes emotionally invested in this young family.  With realistic characters; engaging dialogue and interactions; and a nice balance between family dynamics, sensuous romance scenes, and dramatic twists and turns, The Guardian's Heart is an endearing romantic story that will leave you smiling.

Gabe captured my heart from the start. Taking care of his twin siblings, making a home for them while he's working to finish school with no time left to grieve the loss of their parents, he is thrown into a very adult world with adult responsibilities. Gabbie rescued Gabe and the twins at one of Gabe’s lowest and loneliest points. In return, Gabe rescued her right back by loving her at first glance without any pretense. This story made me laugh out loud at times. It also made me cry. Feeling the loss they were experiencing, not just Gabe’s and the kids but Gabbie’s loss of innocence and miscarriage of justice from her high school crush. I like a strong hero and Gabe is definitely one of those.

Excellent book and a quick read! I finished this book in one sitting I was so wrapped up in Case and Gabbie's relationship. Their first meeting was so real I could imagine it happening to anyone, even me :) Gabbie was instantly drawn to Case and the kids and it was nice to see her helping him out. Much like reality, insecurities came into play in their relationship but they worked through things together. Both characters were written so much like real people it felt like I was right there with them. I was devastated when Aunt Gwen tried to ruin their chance at happiness. It's hard to find well written interracial love stories and this was a great example of that. I would definitely recommend this book!
