I had expectations for this one but it didn't deliver. Good bones for a HP-modeled story. Too much telling or inner monologue, lack of depth made this a skimmer. The child acted much older than a 3-year old. The evil PA, gf wannabe provided much of the "separation" and lack of communication - she wouldn't put through calls and hid all letters - but she kept them in a file in case she needed to clear herself. The OW began to drink vodka because the H is Russian and kind of gets hooked on i

Ridiculously cute and sweet. It was nothing like the books I'm used to, but I liked it a lot. Funny how you get the whole plot from the title of the novella alone. Nothing more, nothing less than what it said. Quick, fun, sweet read.

I really enjoyed this book. Little Victoria was the star of this book. Victoria was three years old, smart, sweet, and simple adorable. She only knew her father by the pictures that her mother Kristen showed her, and by the stories that they found on line about him. Her father Mikhail was a rich business man. Victoria loved spending each weekend with her mom, looking for new stories about her dad. The first time she saw her dad in person, she ran too him, and hugged him hard. She never wanted to ...more

This is a short but sweet and light romance book. It doesn't have that much drama like a general 'secret-child' book has but that actually tips the scale in its favour.
I would recommend it for all those who just want a break from very intense and overwhelming reads !!
4 'the cold never bothered me anyway' stars !!
Completely clueless hero. Heroine sent him letters every month for three years detailing everything their little girl did and his assistant hid them all because she was hot for him and was determined to get him to notice her and he never once questioned why his wife disappeared on him. Clueless fool.

Cute short storry. The cute part is for Victoria.. cuttie little pie who is 3 but talks and act like a 5 year old. The ending seems abrupt like this wasn't supposed to be a short story.

A sweet read.

Passion flares between Mikhail and Kristen leading to a quick marriage and an early pregnancy. Almost losing her baby before she knew it about scares Kristen, leading her to make a tough choice. Believing he lost his baby and almost his wife leaves Mikhail with the knowledge that Kristen has gotten under his skin.

In the 3 years apart, Kristen never gives up hope that Mikhail will join them and sends him letters and pictures and also keeps her smart daughter updated on her dad. After

If you like Harlequin type stories, you might find this entertaining although the plot is totally unbelievable.
Super annoying hero character! The story didn't make sense to me. How can a husband believe his secretary more than his own wife?! If that so, just marry your damn secretary. And how can a wife has no any access to her husband if not through his secretary? In this modern world, i can't believe if the husband doesn't have his own phone to begin with. The story just didn't make any sense. The child in the story also acted so much older than her age that again, made the story feel so unreal. Did no ...more

I liked it. The characters were good, and the MC had her senses and didn't get back with the guy the second she saw him, or forgive him. There was actual misunderstanding and evil-doer here which made me feel better. The male MC was understanding, too. There was sufficient focus on the daughter.

The only thing I got bothered by was that the ending was too abrupt. Before I knew it, the book was over, especially when I felt like there'll be another couple chapters left.

The characters did not feel developed and the pacing was bad. They just decided to kiss and make up at the 90 something percent part of the book cause the H finally could open up a bit about his past. Definitely felt rushed.

Also, hated that the H would rather believe his secretary than the h. The Secretary is also dumb as hell. Why would she keep the letters. Convenient plot device and lazy writing.

The Tycoon's Toddler Surprise...

A delightful read. Funny and angst filled characters. Passionate and heartfelt. Miscommunication and betrayal tears them apart. Love and perseverance brings them back together.

Recommend. Overall this was an enjoyable story. Kristen & Mikhail strong connection was not destroyed by time and a meddling Secretary. The little surprise Mikhail received was an added bonus. Sex was 🔥.

This is a book that I have re-read many times. There is just something about the characters and plot that make it a great book.

The cover is too graphic for the book. A three year old girl running to her surprised father would have fit the book better.
When her stressful New York life leads pregnant Kristen to find herself in hospital, she knows she has to make some changes. Leaving her husband, Mikhail, and moving closer to her family is her first port of call, but that doesn't mean that she's leaving him for good, nor does it mean she doesn't want him in her daughter's life.

There's not much that I can say about this book. I didn't outright hate it, but I definitely didn't like it either.

It was a short story, but I don't think that means th

This book was very addicting and had me turning to see what happens next. Mikhail and Kristan had and intense first meeting and quickly fell for one another her more so than him. Within a few weeks they were married and soon after that she found out she was pregnant. She nearly lost the child after four months but was able to keep the child by being on bed rest for the rest of the pregnancy. She left to go stay with her family after nearly losing the child. She tried to call him and write him bu ...more

It was nice to read. Emotional battle. Not so equal in love feeling if I may say. The heroine so open wide with her feeling and her emotion while the hero just like a closed and locked book.

The plot itself was okay. Not so lame, not so boring, but also not so fast. It was so so.

What the most infuriated in this book was the revenge part.

An fairly easy read. Mikhail and Kristen are married, but due to the high stress life that Mikhail leads Kristen is forced to choose between giving birth to her child or staying with Mikhail. Even though Kristen sent letters to Mikhail explaining why she left and with updates on her pregnancy then latter updates and photos about there daughter's life and mile stones, Mikhail never responded. Three years latter Mikhail discovers a letter in the mail with an indentation to his daughters birthday p ...more

this book was addicting and i read the story in two hours... i wish it was longer and the way it ended was way too abrupt but it was a great book none the less some parts the author repeated themselves but you see that sometimes..

i love Mikhail and Kristen didnt annoy me which is surprising since so many female characters do that exact thing but not her.. overall great book that i wish was longer and gave you that little bit extra that would made it t
