Senna Callas’s one-night stand with her alpha a*****e boss, Marco Medina, was supposed to mark the end of her internship and their ridiculous attraction. After being unreachable and ignoring Senna for a year, Marco sweeps back into the country and summons her to his office, revealing he knows her secret…the secret created during their explosive night together.
Marco is determined to be there for the son he’s just discovered he has, but when it comes to being with Senna, his choices aren’t his own. His meddling family expects him, the firstborn son, to follow through with the arranged marriage set up when he was a child. And Senna has no plans on being his mistress and still resents how her attempts to contact Marco were ignored. The only thing going right between them is the attraction that burns no matter the complicated situation they’re in.
Marco would do anything to protect his family, anything except decide between the legacy he was born into and the young family he’s just found…
I thought this was a great read. It's very well written and I really enjoyed these characters. Senna was so gracious and not angry like many women would be. Marco was intriguing. Trying to live up to everyone's expectations yet never going for what he really wants. A terrific story of family loyalty and love and I book I definitely recommend to everyone.
This was a sweet quick read.
Marco has a strict rule of never engaging in relationships with his staff. He only broke his rule once with an intern but family duties called him home. Now a year later, he learns that that one night has given him a child and that child is the heir to his family's massive fortune. Senna tried to get in touch with Marco when she learned that she was pregnant with her child but assumed that he had abandoned them. She is happy to have Marco involved with his child but she will not allow him to take over their lives. When she learns that Marco is engaged, it leads to confusion and frustration. Marco is committed to fulfilling his family's expectations for him but can he forget the one woman who may be worth walking from it for?
I liked this story but never really felt connected to the characters. Senna and Marco were both pretty frustrating in their stubbornness but once they connected with each other, I was rooting for them to work it out.
