release, but it still had a bit of a dated feel Considering this was first published in the 1980s, I m willing to be a bitforgiving of it than I would otherwise.Leigh is desperate for a baby Because of a tragedy in her past, she s not willing to enter into a relationship with a man physical or otherwise She works as a CPA and she s interested inthan just the books at the company she s auditing One of the partners and creative director , Brian, is the perfect candidate He s a known playboy who has made it clear he has no intention of settling down with a woman Even though Leigh is scared to death he ll say no, she works up enough courage to ask him if he d be willing to donate to her cause if you know what I mean.Brian is at first annoyed by Leigh s request..then intrigued He s tired of women chasing after him with the hope of snaring him into marriage and Leigh might be the perfect solution If he marries her, he can still carry on as he wishes, but not have to worry about the women he sees trying to trap him Leigh isn t thrilled with the idea of marrying him, but Brian figures it s the perfect solution for both of them Plus, he wants to be involved with his child.Leigh reluctantly agrees to marry Brian, but only if he agrees they won t have a physical relationship She figures they ll both be safe enough with the arrangement But after the wedding things change Brian starts hanging around , taking care of Leigh as she deals with the early months of her pregnancy He also develops a deep connection with the one person Leigh is close to..Robert, a close family friend and former employee As time goes on, both Brian and Leigh begin to develop feelings for one another But Leigh still has major hangups about men and Brian still has major hangups about Leigh.The characters here were both interesting Despite neither wanting a relationship, Leigh and Brian really gravitate toward each other Brian takes care of Leigh during the worst of her pregnancy and gives her the emotional support she didn t realize she was missing In turn, Leigh offers Brian something he never realized he was missing..companionship and independence She isn t a clinging type who wants his undivided attention 24 7 But she is there, fading into the background, offering him a sense of family he never had before.As the novel progressed I enjoyed the way their relationship developed It wasn t a quick drop, but a slow slide into trust and caring It was good to see the way Brian slowly uncovered Leigh s secrets and the reason for her trauma, and then help her overcome it SPOILER For the first 3 4 of the book I was totally wrapped up in them and enjoying it Then I hit a WTF moment Things are going well between them and Brian finally has a breakthrough with Leigh And then he sends her away Presumably to allow her time to figure out if her feelings are tied to lust or if she s truly in love The problem is, it came out of nowhere Things were going so well between them and then..bam He does a 180 and tells her to go away That in and of itself was strange and frustrating, but they spent the next 3 or 4 months apart And when they re finally reunited the resolution takes about a page and bam..they all live happily ever after the end It came about too quickly after such a strange and drawn out twist END SPOILER Though I enjoyed much of the story and found it to be emotionally compelling, I couldn t get over the rushed ending or unexpected actions of the hero.3.5 5This review was originally posted on Book Binge by Holly Reviewed Girls Without a Bookshelf.I

for a good set of characters for this book, as the plot felt like something that can only orchestrated by strong characters However, even that was a failure While both the heroine was given sufficient background story to build up her present character, it was only one sided hence the hero is as lifeless as a rock Characterisation in the present tense is empty at best The narrative is in the third person but is unconventionally one sided, so it not only feels unbalance, characterisation becomes searingly lifeless Further, although I think it could have been interesting how the narrative is used, it did not deliver.The plot itself is nothing special The premise, as I have mentioned, sounds particularly intriguing However, while it does exactly what it says on the tin, it stops right there There are no thrills, no surprises, no twists There were hardly ever any notable scenes The only thing that surprised me perhaps, is the fact that it is already a new scene, as my arc copy does not distinguish where one scene ends and another begins There is also quite a lengthy monologue that is not only confusing but one that dragged on and transformed into annoying despite ambling on and finishing the book, I wish I had not bothered.Really a disappointing read, I m afraid When I read this years ago it would have been a 4, now I d give it a 3 Heroine is a little young to be so desperate.
