As the story develops you warm up to Derrick and understand the walls he puts up. You go on the journey with him as he falls in love and allows himself to be loved not just by Eva but his family as well. I am happy that while he soften toward Eva he was still a man that did not suffer fools.
This is a great story that stayed with me long after I read it. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
The plot thickens when Ava finds out she's preggers. Well, Derrick decides he can't let his child feel emotionally neglected the way he was. So, he strong-arms Eva into marrying him. He tells her that if she refuses, he'll fight her for custody. Eva ain't no punk, but she knows she doesn't stand a chance against his money - especially when she only has a part-time job and no benefits. Plus, deep inside, she still has feelings for Derrick. In the end, she finally capitulates, agreeing to be his wife.
Now, I can't tell you what else happened. If you want to know, you have to read the book for yourself. The author does an excellent job of making me hate Derrick, then making my Texas-sized heart swell with compassion for him. From the first page of the story, I was hooked. I admired how Eva put Derrick through his paces too. The love scenes were steamy, despite the fact that Eva was pregnant. I loved how the author included this in the book. Pregnant women can get their freak on too - how do you think all of you got here?! At any rate, pick up this book. You'll be glad you did.
The Good: First off, that cover is the business, a perfect representation of the hero. I actually picked it up, thinking I wouldn't be able to review it, but wanting to read it because of its Harlequinesque situation and fantastic cover. What a page turner! I love a hero with issues, and Derrick had plenty. I also appreciated the story's sweet little domestic touches -- there's an ongoing argument about crumbs in the bed that I've had with my own husband. Last but not least, the resolution was satisfying and felt fully earned.
The Bad: There's a story arc, involving the identity of Eva's father that was introduced late, somewhat tangential, and left unresolved.
The Naughty: Sensual. Pregnant sex.
Editing issues: None.
Publisher: Diamond Press (indie author)
