I knew nothing about the author, Suz deMello, until I finished reading and saw the impressive collection of work that she has written.
As soon as I started reading, I appreciated the skill with which she drew the reader into the reality of the characters and I really enjoyed the book.
I felt Linda Travers conflicting emotions. I could feel her shock when she realised that her new client was Dave Madsen, the man who had taken off for the Amazon, without a word, after they had spent a passionate night after the end-of-the-term college grad party. That night had meant a lot to her—Dave had been her hero, her unrequited love, since he had saved her life when she was 13 years old, but he had no recollection of who she actually was when they fell onto his bed that night…the night that had left her pregnant and on her own.
While Dave was roaming the Amazon and following his dream, her life had changed forever. She was never carefree like the rest of the people her age; she struggled to make it through her pregnancy, get her training as a physical therapist and raise their son, Mac—the son he knew nothing of. He had played no role in their life through those difficult years and she had survived without his support. Now that he had come back to town she knew that she had to tell him about the child—and she had to tell her son that his father had returned from the Amazon.
I related to her conflicting feelings. Dave definitely wanted to be a part of their son’s life, but while sexual magnetism tugged to pull them together, she was not certain if he actually had real feelings for her. She was torn as she watched Mac and Dave bond. Sometimes happy for them, sometimes angry and resentful, sometimes feeling shut out, Linda had so many things to work through, and she often reacted with insecurity, and was less than straight forward.
Dave, on the other hand was unfailingly honest, and he saw things through a prism of simple facts.
Mac had problems of his own. He was a good kid, but he had a lot of adjusting to do too. He was awed at having a dad, but he also had always been the center of attention with his mother. Like all kids, he tried to play both ends against the middle between his parents until Dave caught on.
The characters in Secret Father are very believable—quite honestly I really liked Dave, and I felt for Linda. Sexual tension oozed between them, but there was no graphic sex. Mac was a six-year-old kid; a charmer and a little devil at times. One thing that I really enjoyed was sharing the growth of the characters as they found their way.
Be sure to read this great book. It has plenty of real emotion, enough twists and curves to keep the reader interested and it took me to places that I hadn’t expected.
At 14 years old Linda was saved by 17 year old Dave.
That's the day she fell for him.
Their paths cross again in college at an end of year party and lose their virginity to each other. Then Dave is off to pursue his dream, spending the next six years in the Amazon.
Meanwhile Linda is left to face the reality of their actions.
She's pregnant and alone. Dave's living his life and she's now forced to readjust everything.
She struggled to finish school and raise their son Mac, but she made it. Yes she had to fight hard for what she wanted but Mac never took second place, Linda's an attentive mom who loves her son more than anything.
After six years away Dave is in need of a physical therapist and it just happens that he shows up at Linda's door.
She's shocked and confused by her feelings, even after all that time it brings every feeling she ever had front and center.
Dave, who is clueless to her struggles, is curious about her life, why she didn't leave him any contact information all those years ago after what he thought was an amazing night for both of them.
As the truth comes out Linda has to deal with a new reality, one where she is no longer the center of her sons world. He has his father now, and Dave loves Mac, they bond quickly and are great together. Now if only she could come to term with her feelings; feeling like she's not number one in Mac's world anymore is a tough one for any parent but on top of that are the feelings for Dave.
I loved this book early on, it hooked me quickly and wouldn't let go. I read it in one day, practically one sitting. I've been missing out on a great author and need to explore more from her.
romance. What are the odds that they would find each other
again? I love Mac he is such a sweet inquisitive kid. And
defiantly like his father, right down to being the spitting
image of him. I loved when they meet again in the beginning
of the book. Poor Linda is at a loss as what to do. You know
how a small town works, everyone knows your business
within minutes. And when rumors start flying poor Linda may
have to move. That is till Dave proposes a solution to the
problem. Man it was a weird one now they just have to see
how it all works out. I hope to read more books by Suz
DeMello her book was well written and flowed so
seamlessly. I finished it before I knew it. It was morning
and time to get up. I just could not put the book down.
Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you
enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book,
please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it
when you do; they value your opinions too.
