Book Summary

Conflict of interest is an understatement…

Since being disowned by her strict father, Cass Stone has spent her adulthood trying to prove him wrong. Her drive has led to more success than her family ever thought she’d achieve, and life is looking great. Not even an incredible and mysterious one night stand that leaves her a single mom can trip her up...until the father of her baby stumbles back into her life, as sexy and unreliable as ever.

Logan Alexander hasn’t forgotten the night he spent with Cass two years ago, but he never expects to end up undercover as her assistant. His job saves lives—like it should have saved his brother—and he can’t afford complications. It’s difficult enough to maintain his cover as a carefree wanderer when he realizes his attraction to Cass hasn’t faded...and then he meets Cass’s daughter.

My Thoughts

Quick, Intriguing Read

Are you looking for a contemporary romance with a heroine who has a position of power? Then Her Secret, His Surprise by Paula Altenburg might be that summer read you’re looking for. The story realistically portrayed some of the struggles Cass had as a working mother and associated with her having a high level of responsibility in the workplace. Her position as a director was intriguing and it was nice that she wasn't depicted in a role commonly found in romance novels. I loved Cass's strong willed, independent and hardworking character who liked to be in control. And at times, she even carried her managerial skills into the bedroom. When she decided to relax, she really knew how to put her hair down while having some fun. Cass did have one minor problem though—she couldn't lie. Her futile attempts at lying were amusing especially since the people around her could read her like a book. Cass’s attraction to Logan, Bartender/Administrative Assistant/CSIS Agent and undercover lover was instantaneous and led to a one night stand early on. However, things between them did slow down the second time around, and the progression of their story was plausible.

Rating 4/5

I received a copy of Her Secret, His Surprise from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
