Falling for her enemy - Victoria James

She's falling for the one man who could destroy everything...

Alex McAllister always dreamed of a life filled with the laughter and love of a family, but being abandoned at a young age left her wary of letting anyone in. Now that she's settled in Still Harbor, Alex struggles between keeping her distance and the magnetic pull of the handsome stranger who claims he's the biological father of her adopted daughter.

Hayden Brooks never wanted to be a father. Long hours spent building his family's real estate empire suits him just fine. But when he discovers an ex put the baby he unknowingly fathered up for adoption, his world crumbles. He tracks the child to Still Harbor with the intention of bringing her home-and comes face to face with his daughter's stunning adoptive mother.

The paternity test is in. And Hayden's about to make the most shocking decision of his life, just in time for Christmas...

My thoughts:
This one was emotional, I spent a great deal of the book upset with Hayden. Arghhhh, so upset!!!

See, Hayden gets a visit from a woman telling him she was preggers and gave the baby up for adoption. He wants the kid, so he goes in, feeling entitled (he is rich after all) and being all I can give this kid a better future. Never mind she has a mother! that she loves and the only family she has ever known. To even think for a second of taking her away. Evil. Yes yes I get that she might be your daughter, but think of her for a second.

But hey, we all know this is a romance, and that Hayden will fall in love with Alex, the woman who adopted the girl. And that he will change his way of thinking, and that they will live happily ever after. But initially I was upset with him. Alex was just so darn nice, and sure he was too, he wanted the best for his maybe daughter. And the kid was so nice too. They were all meant to be together and they would be.

Conclusion:
So if you are looking for a more emotional filled novella then this one is for you. Love wins in the end.

  5. Wow, when I read the title of this book on your post title in my feed, I thought it would be like a thriller romance. My brain is totally not reconciling with the cover or what this book is really about.

  10. I think I'd be very upset with Hayden, too! I get the biological thing, but to uproot a child just because his DNA lives in her? I'm sure that created some truly wonderful tension between Hayden and Alex, though :)
