On the outside, Molly Gifford had it all—a hot legal career and a hotter boyfriend. But what she really wanted was a family. So when she discovered her real father, she didn’t hesitate to pack her bags. Even though it meant leaving her old life behind.
Daniel Hunter's still trying to get on with his life after losing Molly. Then she shows up at his door, begging for help. Her newfound father is under arrest for murder, and she's convinced Hunter is the only attorney with the skill and reputation to get him off.
Hunter can't resist helping an innocent man and he’s still drawn to Molly. Although he can’ resist her, he won’t be hurt again. This time he’s determined to be the one who walks away with his heart and emotions intact.
The latest contemporary romance from bestseller Phillips is a warm, sexy whodunit featuring powerhouse lawyers Molly Gifford and Daniel Hunter, who, despite success in the courtroom, are still plagued by abandonment issues: years in foster care have left Daniel scarred, while Molly's boarding school experiences have left her desperate for a real family. After weathering another stunning disappointment from her mom, Molly leaves to track down her long-lost father, rejecting her smitten friend Daniel's heartfelt attempts to help. But just as Molly settles down with her father and a promising new family, her father is accused of murdering his best friend and business partner. Despite the hurt she's caused him, Molly successfully pleads with Daniel to join her on the case. Residing under the same roof and the watchful, caring eyes of her new family Molly and Daniel surrender to passion even as the case for the defense grows increasingly bleak. Phillips's quirky cast is delightful, especially an outspoken grandma (known as Commander) and a potty-mouthed macaw; meanwhile, the romance generates sufficient heat and the pieces of the mystery fall together to satisfying effect.

Will he help her, not lost his heart again, getting over the past suspense, and maybe finding their HEA...
This was the second book in his series that was rereleased, I loved Hunter and Molly’s story the first and the second time. Carly Phillips never disappoints. This was a great second chance story. I couldnt put this wonderful quick suspenseful read down, that I highly recommend reading. There were many twists and turns with the case against Molly’s father. Will Hunter be able to move on with out getting hurt.
Family is what you make it!
Overcoming a crappy childhood to become a successful person takes a lot of hard work. Carly Phillips brings to life two very strong but flawed characters who take us on a relationship rollercoaster ride. The push and pull of their relationship kept me wondering if they were ever going to be ready to be together. Hunter and Molly crossed paths in law school and again a few years later. Hunter thought he was ready for a permanent relationship, but Molly wasn’t ready. Heart break is not easily forgiven. Later that year, Molly needs Hunter’s professional skills, and thinks she is ready for what she walked away from. Their relationship takes many twists and turns. Beautifully written!
