A fan favorite from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks!
One dark secret. One destroyed engagement. And the baby that will expose everything…
When wealthy developer Ryan Beardsley kicked his cheating fiancée out of his life, he couldn’t help but write her one last check that would cover any and all expenses she could possibly have… except for some reason, she never cashed it. He’s stuck on that fact, stuck wondering why she betrayed him. New plan: track her down, get the answers he needs, and move on from her forever.
Kelly Christian never wanted to see her ex-fiancé ever again. He turned out as rotten to the core as the rest of his family, pushing her away when she needed him the most. But now he’s here, in her dingy little café, demanding she move back in with him for the sake of the baby she’s carrying… and the answers he wants that will destroy them both if he doesn’t learn to trust her again…

I have enjoyed this author so much in the past that I thought I would love this too but that definitely wasn't the case.
Ryan wrote Kelly a check when he kicked her out of his life but six months later, she still hasn't cashed it. He finds her working in a run down diner and heavily pregnant so he takes her home with him and tries to work through her betrayal of sleeping with his brother.
So the blurb says that there's a secret but really that secret was shared at the time of the event so is it really still a secret? I didn't think Ryan did enough to come back from his transgressions: he let his family and friends treat Kelly poorly and expected her to just take it. I really struggled to finish this book but because I was about 80% through, I powered through the rest. I wonder if reading book one of this series would change my opinion about this one.
