This novella had its moments, and the premise was interesting enough, but I found the actual romantic storyline between Riley and Cat quite unbelievable. ***SPOILER ALERT: I can't believe that someone who feels so strongly against marriage and family would change his mind and be ready to propose marriage to his complete opposite within a few days. They did not have time to develop any sort of relationship--even friendship--before declaring themselves in love. In fact, during their time "together" in the house, they are constantly separated--taking care of the children, organizing the house, etc. They have precious few moments to talk with each other, and never once have a real heart-to-heart Riley never reveals his lack of family and upbringing to Cat, and Cat never tells him about her ex-husband. (He only finds out about her ex-husband from her children and photo albums.) With 5 small children, any responsible mother would not rush into such an engagement, and it's ridiculous to pretend so for the sake of a silly plot. I enjoyed many parts of the story, until the ending, when it became so outrageous as to ruin any enjoyment whatsoever.
I already can sense her chaos.......Anyways, her editor decides to hire Riley, who is a professional organizing things and time management expert. Cat immediately goes on the defensive and doesn't think she has a problem. When she first meets Riley, she is stunned by how attractive he was. That made her even more defensive and skeptical. Riley felt the attraction as well, but knew he had to stay professional. Cat was everything Riley wasn't. Cat was chaos, white picket fence, large family, roots and lots of emotions. Riley was planning, traveling light, no commitments and no attachments.
Cat finds herself inviting him over for Thanksgiving and the story goes from there. Story was cute, the kids were cute in the story. There is not a lot of hot steamy romance, instead its about unconditional love, brotherly love and staying together as a family. Being a family. Nice enjoyable read, wish the story was a bit longer to feel believable.
Discussing how to keep track of various appointments--"Isn't that why God created refrigerator magnets?" Was it possible that the rest of the world operated with the efficiency of a Swiss watch while she was a sundial on a cloudy day?
He drove a sleek black sportscar, the kind of car married men dreamed about. Low, powerful, terminally sexy. No wife worth her salt would let her man drive around in a lethal weapon like this.
I will re-read this book
For those who like clean romance, this one is mostly clean. It has a lot of suggestive stuff but no sex scenes. I like my books with all that happening "behind closed doors" and not described in the book.
