2.5. I liked the book for the most part, but I absolutely did not care for the heroine for 60 % of her page time. She was over the top ridiculous. Most things I hate about romance heroines were combined to create her. She killed my romance joy A LOT.

When Tag found out the sperm be and Maria had

Olivia is devistated to find out that Tag is the father of her son, and he wants to be a big part of his life. Running away seemed like a good idea, but Tag was having none of it. Eventually, they found out together that they can overcome the past and m
