Oh to be back between the covers with Denise Hunter in this wonderful series is a treat! From page 1, I was hooked and I read flat out to the last! The characters are so well-written, easy to relate to and even the idea of marrying a friend to gain the guardianship of not-his-baby seems believable, and well, quite reasonable! I was definitely rooting for this couple! The romance is lovely, the humour throughout enjoyable and the court case is edge-of-your-seat action! This book has it all! You don’t have to have read the other books in the series but, if you haven’t, indulge in these too as characters reoccur and it’s wonderful to see them grow! It’s a five out of five and can’t wait for more for me – highly recommended!
From the back cover:
After Brady Collins’ ex-wife dies, he receives devastating news—his nine-month-old son Sam isn’t his son at all. And Sam’s wealthy maternal grandparents want custody of the child. Brady knows he’s in for the fight of his life. But regardless of what any blood test says, Sam is his son, and Brady will go to any lengths to keep him.
Brady’s attorney tips him off that one major life change would virtually assure him of winning guardianship of baby Sam at the final hearing: an impending marriage. And his friend Hope is willing to step in as the loving and devoted fiance.
Local radio celebrity Hope Daniels has been driven by a solitary goal her entire life, and after a happy accident, she’s finally offered her dream job. But if the truth comes out about her arrangement with Brady, she may miss the chance of a lifetime and stand in the way of a dear friend’s dreams.
As Brady and Hope make sacrifices to help each other in their times of need, they risk uncovering a truth neither of them expects to find.
