New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s sizzling novel of ex-lovers locked again in a game of hearts.
There was a time when surgeon Kian Forbes would have surrendered every cent of his vast family fortune if it could make Roxie Gilbert happy. That was before she skipped town, broke his heart, and sent him spinning through a string of forgettable one-night stands. He never even knew he’d fathered a child—with Roxie’s sister, no less. But in the wake of tragedy, little Lily needs a home. And Kian wants his daughter. But Roxie’s not giving in or giving up without a fight.
Fearful of her intense feelings for Kian, Roxie ran. Now that her sister’s death has brought her home, she intends to take custody of her niece and avoid Kian—easier said than done on both counts. With their wealth and power, the Forbes men are accustomed to winning. And as she and Kian are forced to spend time together for Lily’s sake, saying no to everything he wants proves impossible…even though it means risking both their hearts all over again.
Kian and Roxie had great chemistry in this second chance romance. I had no issues with the child being from a one night stand with Roxie’s sister. The note from her sister to me was enough to move on and Roxie had her own issues wanting to escape the small town. We are all young and make mistakes in life – forgiveness if part of life.
This story had all the usual wonderful elements of a Melody Anne romance novel. Plenty of angst, tension, attraction, and drama but also adding in the beautiful character of Lily.
From the first few chapters, I was enjoying this story. Whilst it kept me entertained I thought the pace slowed in the middle. The ending felt slightly rushed for me and it is a very simple and sweet at times romance.
Lily was a beautiful character who provided the endearing moments that melted Roxie’s resolve to stay away from Kian.
My favourite moment was when Kian finally enabled Roxie to realise she loved him and it was okay to put faith in someone.
Kian is finished at a happy moment along with the fact there are still three more sons in this family to find love, with the help of their matchmaking father.
