On the whole one of Mrs Collin's better books based on the theme of the "secret baby" but it was pleasing that she shied away from the traditional plotline associated with this and instead gave it an unusual twist in that Theo isn't really sure he wants to be a father!
Both Theo and Jaya have emotional insecurities but have alluring personalities and you can have nothing but admiration for Jaya in particular for her strength of character in dealing with a traumatic experience in her past and making a new life for herself.
From a personal point of view I was puzzled as to how an Indian lady had the surname Powers, what had happened to her wasn't explained fully and I would have preferred less attention paid to their child.
However, I liked meeting members of Theo's family from previous books and the author has an easy to read style which holds your interest.

Imagine working for a sinfully sexy boss that not only commands excellence but pretty much can command you to drop every single stitch of your clothing and all just with a smile.
Would you be able to concentrate on work and not think about what it would be like to be with him? Would you be able to not think of happy ever afters and instead remember that you are just the current flavor of secret sexual you please me I please you affairs?
This is pretty much the life of Jaya, she craves the touch of her boss Theo, and in one reckless night of surrender and escape on both their parts she not only get's every single touch she desires but also a heck of a lot more than she bargained for.
But because she had already made up her mind to quit and take off to France she has no idea of the consequences before much later. Only when Theo seeks her out to ask for her help in caring for his niece and nephew does she have to come clean and Theo is not only not prepared for it he is so floored that is perfectly crafted world crumbles into a heap of confusion, anger and hurt. Not to mention the man is mad as hell at her for daring to not let him in on the secret sooner, and he plans on making her pay!
The character of Jaya was really touching. I loved her fighting spirit and natural handle what ever comes personality. She knows she might be able to handle what ever life dishes up but she for darn sure won't go down without a fight. Just like the rest of us she also hits her points of frustration and anger but her inner beauty let's it all balance back to a sort of try to see the bright part in all this and find a staring point to sort it out. This made her a really fascinating heroine that I fully enjoyed reading.
The character of Theo was a real bastard at the best of times! I wanted to at one stage hurl more than a flowerpot at his gorgeous head! But I could understand that being a man of power and dominating everything in life and then suddenly being thrown into a world of diapers, feeding time and play groups would pretty much send any man off balance. It was very entertaining to see him go from all round master in the office to having to learn how to master handling babies. Him lashing out with hurtful words and actions showed just how hard it can be to learn to adapt to a new world when it was not what you expected to land in your lap in the first place or when you lose what you did not know you had.
I loved the rich and utterly gorgeous backdrops described by the author in exquisite detail, the dialogue was extremely emotional so much so that it not only brought me to tears it pretty much felt like my heart was ripped to shreds and I had to keep reading in order to have it healed again, which the author did with and amazing heartfelt ending that had me shouting "Yes, yes, yes !!!"
I am taking away a message of life throws you for a loop when you least expect it but it is not the time to go down in flames thinking " I am so not ready for this and am so not dealing with it". Yes you are entitled to ask for help no one is going to blame you but, don't ask for help and then still think it gives you the right to only let your rules count. Others have opinions too. And don't ever think your feelings don't count.
5/5 star review
"An heir binds them, but only love can heal their broken past"
One word first, RIDICULOUS! I can’t help but to disagree with what Jaya did. Even how much you had a crush on your boss, come on…you don’t be a s*ut like that. That is just too cheap for me (I dunno about other readers, this is my opinion). But I still love the book especially the scene when Theo knows about Zephyr, it makes me want to laugh. But I just don’t get it about Jaya’s past, her sister, etc. It just doesn’t go with the plot.
Overall it is still a good book. Good job, Dani Collins!
Although I have stockpiled all this author's titles this was the first Dani Collins
I chosen got round to reading. Although I found it slow to get into at first I liked the
refreshingly original approach the author took in making the hero a reluctant
father in sharp contrast to many other MODERN(S). I give Dani Collins five
stars for the story and a good choice of title. The production / design team
did an excellant job with such an eye-catching cover for the UK edition, I'll be
looking forward to the next Dani Collins I read and recommend her to other
readers on the strength of this book.
