CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Victoria Pinder took a character I did not like from earlier books, and developed Eva into a likeable maturing person. A standalone read, I subject you read the earlier books to give you character and story depth. Eva's development and maturity begins after she finds herself pregnant.
She's determined to raise her child in a secure loving environment. Eva's also a person of moral character as she believes in paying her debts; which is how she finds herself broke. Brandon's the answer to her prayers. Pinder developed Eva from a woman with many insecurities to one who knows her worth.
Brandon's a knight in shining armor. I loved his determination to care for Eva and her baby; not realizing emotions will begin to play a part in their relationship. Pinder built the romance between Eva and Brandon slowly as each wrestled with their past and insecurities. Brandon knows something about Eva's past which no one else knows; resulting in how Eva saw herself and her qualities.
Of course, all good stories must have an antagonist. Pinder gave Brandon and Eva a dilly. I disliked him from the get-go. Selfish, filthy rich, and obnoxious, he is determined to make Eva's life hell. However, he had not counted on Brandon's fierce protectiveness.
As a result of skillfully composition, I found Pinder's character's well-developed with plotting which kept me intrigued until the last page. The pace is in line with the length of the book and her scenes transition smoothly. I found her characters realistic and believable. Needless to say, this book's an easy read which held my attention. Plus, Pinder included characters from earlier books; giving us a look into their current life and latest gossip.
Perfect for a lazy afternoon of reading in your favorite chair as you follow the latest adventures of the Marshall family. As a final conclusion, I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.

FINALLY, PLEASE NOTE
In addition, I received this book from the author and chose to voluntarily review the book/novel with honest romance book reviews. Furthermore, book reviews of any novel are dependent on the author’s opinion. Consequently, all book reviews on-line and on my blog, are my opinions. Further, I must say, no one influences my voluntary romance book reviews; even though I received an ARC for this book.
I was given an Advanced Readers Copy of this book by the author for an honest review. It was my pleasure to read and review
Eva and Brandon have known each other since High School. Brandon is now a billionaire movie producer, Eva is an actress whose life has been turned upside down, which, in a way, seems to be how her life has been since she had been a foster child and never really fit in. Now she finds herself unemployed and pregnant; her ex is with Brandon's sister off and on.
Brandon is in need of a pregnant villain for a movie he's producing, as well as pretend girlfriend to be a spy on-set to help him determine why the movie is so out of budget. Initially, Eva feels that Brandon is trying to "save her". He assures her they would be helping each other as she needs money/stability for her unborn child.
Victoria Pinder has created another gem of a book. This is mystery and second chance at love that I totally recommend reading.
Brandon is a movie producer and although he is a couple years older than Eva they have known each other since high school. He comes to offer her the part of a pregnant villain in his move but while there he wants her to investigate the huge cost overruns on the movie and she can do so by posing as his girlfriend.
As they live together they become close but is there relationship based on convenience or much more? I liked both these characters as Brandon is protective and loyal while Eva only wants to do what is right. I enjoyed this book and look forward to see what this author comes up with next. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
