Maybe it's just because of the current state of politics but I think it would have a few months ago, too. Women, and especially young women in the age bracket of this h, need strong, confident role models - not women who scold themselves for going out and having fun after a break up and basing their opinion of self-worth on whether or not their parents would approve. Aug 23, Emma rated it liked it. I have read and reviewed two of Lara Swann's books and really enjoyed them. I feel this one did not meet my expectations. I did not particularly like the female lead character Ava. She is prideful and determined and that made her take things the wrong way.
It's ashamed that these qualities are used in an unhealthy way. She constantly overthinks things and she usually trended towards the negative side of it. Also she never trusted what the lead male character, Damien, said.

He never lied to her. So, I could not understand why she was so distrustful. When something good came into her life, she again approached it in an unfavorable way.

She thought any good things were an illusion bound to end just as quickly as it was created. It was tiresome that she always relied on her best friend, Vicki, to help her solve her problems. Why could she not just make up her own dang mind. Even though Damien was attracted to Ava, she still doubted him.
Even though he wanted to be more to her than a one night stand, she still did not trust anything he said. My goodness was that annoying. Damien was a very strong character. He was the only redeeming part of the book. He sacrificed what he had planned for his future for his family. He started his own business and worked tirelessly to make it a success. It was sad that all of Ava's insecurities were projected onto him. That caused him to double guess his own motives about everything to make sure he did not do or say anything wrong.
Because he took more responsibility for the relationship between him and Ava, that was his only drawback.

This was the first book I read of Lara Swann and was completely taken by the story of Ava and Damien.

A little conversation and a bit of flirting later Damien takes Ava to another place in the club, they start to slow dance and then things start to get hot and heavy so Damien takes Ava to the hotel next door. Ava is blown away by the sex that they have she never knew sex could be like that, once she woke up she left before Damien woke up.
Feb 19, Kathleen Bruce rated it really liked it. Good book The story was good, a little bit to fast pace in the love connection. The one thing that annoyed me was Ava telling Damien she was giving the baby up for adoption. He said I'll adopt it.
Anyone knows a father doesn't need to adopt his own baby, also she cannot legally give her baby up for adoption without the fathers consent. I thought the book also ended to fast. It would have been more interesting if Ava decided to move into Damiens house. It was established repeatedly that they Good book The story was good, a little bit to fast pace in the love connection. It was established repeatedly that they loved each other.
It was mentioned Emily would be wanting her own place, she could have moved into the apartment. I'm a little confused Damien is suppose to be a billionaire A Billionaire Secret Baby yet he doesn't own a plane? Why would flying the web designer's and putting them up in a motel take a huge chunk of their money? I would think that'd be a drop in a bucket. Even a millionaire could afford to hire a plane.
Ava was to much of a wimp in front of her ex. I would have said I came up in the world without you holding me back. She should have held up the keys to her apartment, laughed in his face then walked away. One she got inside she could break down and cry all she wanted over his nasty remarks. Aug 22, Andrea rated it it was amazing. With Damien I have met the man of my dreams as it seems… Who would not want a man in their life who cares so deeply for his partner in such an all-encompassing way, so attentivly and tenderly, lovingly and devotedly? And with Ava he found the perfect partner too.
She is as warm and caring as he himself, a little damaged by bad experiences in her past and so worthy of his caring and generosity… Both characters are so very well and very vivid created that it is a pit With Damien I have met the man of my dreams as it seems… Who would not want a man in their life who cares so deeply for his partner in such an all-encompassing way, so attentivly and tenderly, lovingly and devotedly?
