There are some pros.
The hero, Madden's specialty IMO, is sweet and slightly shy, unaccustomed to any kind of emotional intimacy--familial, platonic, romantic, etc. I wish the author had played up his angle and made the heroine more normal and less perfect. To me, Madden was following a formula, and I missed the unique characterizations and plots in her other books.
Do I recommend this book? It's not my cuppa but it is competently written. Maybe I'm just too old for HP-reads.
What makes this story unique to me was Clayton's evolution. Clayton is the one who expresses all his doubts and fears as their pseudo relationship morphs into something substantial. He was the one constantly questioning what he was doing, if he should pursue Sarah or no. It was quite a different take for a boy meets girl storyline, but I really enjoyed the role reversal.
Madden doesn't write your typical damsel in distress and hero stories. Sarah may have doubts, but she also has a career and can stand on her own two feet-she's not just waiting for a billionaire to save her! The same goes for our hero. He isn't just the strong and silent type. He is written with the same insecurities and feelings anyone would struggle with and he admits it.
What makes Madden's story stand out is that her characters aren't necessarily saving each other from a lonely existence... they're complementing the other half of the puzzle neither realized was missing.
This is a stand alone story. I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Clayton is the owner of Clifton's, a billion dollar tech and computer firm, with whom Sarah Tyler is an artist that has just completed a contract with. When she's contracted by Clayton to paint his soon to be teenage niece, she accepts and moves in with her Mastiff dog on two.
Tory and Sarah soon hit it off, even though she has never really had a mother figure in her life. Jillian Gallagher is a cold hearted person who treats anyone with less that a million in their bank account like dirt. But Clayton finally can't resist Sarah's charms and they begin a relationship that he soon realizes is how a family should be.
I cheered Sarah and eventually Tory and Clayton tell his stepmother and sister-in-law that they were no longer welcome in his house! I for one am glad that Ms. Madden didn't publish this book years ago, because it gave her time to push the story into one wonderful novel.

All of Ms. Madden's books are 5 stars. Treat yourself to some.
Now, this book is very slow and seems to stand still at times.Read more
