This was pretty good up until the end. The end was far too convenient and the ever after too happy and ideal.

Very good book, with another anti-marriage, anti-kids man laid low by a baby. Pierce had closed himself off emotionally after losing everyone he had cared about. When he ended up with custody of his son, he needed a nanny immediately - one who would keep "the boy" far away from him. Anna is perfect for the job, but has her own son to care for also. Anna can't believe how cold and distant Pierce is, and tries to get him to bond with his son. Pierce is very distrustful, and doesn't really believe...more

The domestic situation completely rocks Pierce's carefully constructed world, and his attempts to keep his distance are soon compromised by the desirable Anna. But when a past complication threatens everything...more

La historia estuvo bien hasta el final. En el último capítulo la autora decidió cargarse toda la trama de la novela y darle un final happily ever after tan rebuscado, que hasta los directores y guionistas de Disney sentirían vergüenza.

Pierce fue un estereotipo y Anna un personaje demasiado perfecto; no le hallé ningún defecto. Dios sabe que existe un círculo para ella en el Infierno de los libros, un poquito más arriba del de las Mary Sues, en dónde debe ser arrojada.

No esperaba mucho de las nov...more

Love the story!

i thought that this book was exceptionally good, especially considering some of the fare available lately from harlequin. both the hero and heroine had really awful things in their pasts to overcome, but the hero was still walking wounded compared to the heroine. he tried so very hard to avoid any true intimacy with a woman, while she opened herself up to loving.

Two adorable toddlers that makes your heart melt and a mother that loves unconditionally...Pierce was so ruthless but I loved how determined Anna was to shatter his walls where the kids and others were concerned...Loved this book and how it turned out to the very end except for Kat's character albeit she seemed happy

Pierce Hollister is afraid of children and finds out he is a daddy and doesn't want to be. He ends up with the child and hires nanny Anna Aronson who decides maybe she should teach him how to be a daddy. First time I read a book by Emilie Rose and I enjoyed it. I will look for more books by her.

Really wanted to dislike the hero, but a large part of me can understand his way of thinking.
