She thinks I'm a hero…

But I'm only a former cop, out of the rescue business for a long time now. Still, I couldn't leave Caro Franklin stranded in a snowstorm. Even if bringing that beautiful lady to my home meant my family—and yes, maybe I, too—would immediately fall in love with her.

So we just met. We still have…something. In spite of those "family obligations" of hers t

Falling in love, Jake realizes he can't keep hiding forever & decides to fight to clear his reputation, and Caro finds the strength to stand to her h
"The Daddy Diaries" is not your usual Harlequin Romance book. It's much more darker and at times I found myself wondering if there can be a HEA. Luckily, Ms. Braun did a great job of portraying her characters' growth and at the end I had no doubts that Jake & Caro will finally be happy.
This is one of those stories where the bulk of the book occurs over an extremely short period of time. It's hard to believe that a relationship of substance can be properly established (that the best part of the story has been told) in such a short period of time. The cover and description are even somewhat misleading, because the little boy doesn't even meet the hero until the last half-dozen pages. A nice book, but unconvincing.
I listened to this ebook and it was all right. The issue I had with it is that it started to get interesting, and then it was done. I was like--epilogue? Did I miss a couple chapters? Then as the epilogue was read I realized I didn't miss chapters, it just ended. Everything wrapped up in the epilogue, but it could have used a couple chapters to make it more interesting.
clean romance.

Very, very light, feel good story.

Short and easy to listen to.

There is much of the deeper relationship that is only mentioned or alluded to, but in a way I appreciated it, the author focused on some turning points but did allow for time and development of the relationship "not in the book"..

This was my first audio book, a little dodgily read at times but overall quite good. The story was predictable and the writing a bit iffy, but it's a Mill's and Boon so kind of expected. Still, i enjoyed the story.
Review on my blog soon :)
