Book Blurb :
Abandoned by his wife and left to raise a child alone, Caleb Reed falls short of the ideal work-from-home dad. He needs a woman to help him, in every sense of the word. At the suggestion of a friend, Caleb agrees to hire Ariel Lauren on a trial basis.
As an orphan, Ariel has more issues than just how to make it on her on. Yes, she needs the money that Caleb offers her, but more than anything she finds she desires his love. One calamity after another befalls her and jeopardizes her new job and her chance at having a family. But through it all, Caleb is by her side, his gruff exterior threatening to melt in the face of their shared attraction. Will they decide to continue life alone or will the magic of Valentine’s Day bring them together?
Although not always, first impressions can be wrong.
This young, wisp of a thing reminded him of a rare specimen, a rose in a garden that begged for a passerby to stop and smell it. With her beauty, the party scene was probably more her thing. There was no way this girl was going to want to stay at home and just play house.
An orphan, Ariel Lauren is not that type of girl. And she needs the job, while Caleb Reed needs someone to look after his son and clean his home. However, when the attraction between them grows, Caleb has to decide if he will take the risk. To add to his dilemma, Caleb’s ex is back and she wants him back.
The story has its share of humor:
Caleb dug out the recipe for the pizza dough. It didn’t take him long to realize he was lost. He held the card every which way trying to decipher the directions.
“Does it make it easier to read if it’s upside down?” asked Ariel, trying to hide the laughter in her voice.
“I’m not sure yet. I do know reading it right side up looks like Greek. So I was hoping upside down would look more like English.”
If you are in mood for something sweet and short, this book won’t let you down. I really enjoyed it, and I rate it 4 couples
