From player to...daddy?
Hollywood agent Ian Schaffer could have his pick of gorgeous women. So he's totally thunderstruck by the intensity of his attraction to horse trainer Cassie Barrington. The single mom, with her luscious curves and unadorned beauty, is so much hotter than the bombshells he's used to. But it's her vulnerability and passion that the jaded player finds utterly irresistible—and that sets of alarm bells, because Ian's as commitment-shy as they come. A woman with a child is absolutely off-limits! Too bad the voluptuous mom has Ian aching to break all his old rules....
Single Man Meets Single Mom by Jules Bennett is a fantabulous addition to the Billionaires and Babies Series. If you've read Bennett’s When Opposites Attract, you’ll be familiar with Cassie Barrington. She’s a single mother, horse trainer, and the sister of Tessa, a jockey. Now, she has a story of her own.
I absolutely loved the realistic characters and storyline presented. Cassie is a curvy real world heroine with real-life problems. So as you can imagine, there was drama and well-developed conflicts related to her role as a single parent. She struggled with self-esteem issues and was hesitant to date. I was captivated by the story from the moment she dropped into Ian’s life. I just loved the fact that Ian viewed her curves as an asset. Ian was suave and knew how to deal with almost every situation when he wasn't throwing a personal pity party. I particularly enjoyed his interactions with her ex-husband when he made an appearance on the scene. Although his past left him conflicted about getting involved in a relationship with a single mother, his actions are sure to leave a smile on your face.
You definitely won’t want to miss Ian and Cassie’s story as they struggle with their electrifying chemistry.
“Now his hands came up, framed her face and sent an insane amount of electrical charges coursing through her” (p. 86).
