I am not very fond of abandonment-prodigal son themes in love stories. I feel like I am the type of person to really not see beyond the years of neglect and missed time with kids. Especially with love stories wherein, years have passed and they have acknowledged the child but chose themselves beyond that love.

I am torn on this how I feel about this story - it seems to be a reprinted Harlequin category story, so I went into the story expecting it to be kind of old Skool romance, which I think led to me enjoying it more than other reviews have noted. There was the smart precocious pre-teen daughter, and almost all of the issues could have been worked out if they had just talked. Based on their upbringing, both Ben and Rachel have a hard time letting others in and let their insecurities rule their lives ...more

2.5 stars. Both the main characters were annoying. I missed a couple of chapters.

Such an odd read with characters who seem to be completely immature and insecure and silly. I skimmed the last 1/3.

Globe Trotting Ben hasn't seen his ex in 13 years. That doesn't mean he's forgotten about her. An abandoned baby, he's used to hearing "Just Go Away." So when Rachel tells him she doesn't love him rather than tie him down with an unwanted pregnancy, he does just that. He goes away. Wanders the globe. No one has ever wanted him.

Rachel's father moved her family around frequently, so once she has the opportunity to put down roots, she does. Her and the daughter she is raising. Although Ben was the
