Case Thomas is always in control whether its on the basketball court, the lab where he works, or in his love life. He thinks he has everything all figured out. All that changes when his parents pass away during his last year of college and Case is thrown into fatherhood when he becomes temporary guardian to two adorable twin toddlers. Weeks later, exhausted and running out of time, Case must decide if he’s ready to become a father to these children, or give them up and move on with what’s left of his life. Then he meets Gabbie Vaulst.
Gabbie is amazing with the kids, owns her own business, and has all the right curves in all the right places. She can tell Case is attracted to her, but does he really love her or is he just settling for a surrogate Mom who can wrangle his new kids? Knowing that she’s falling in love with him, she chooses to push him away until his world straightens out. Can Case prove to Gabbie, and himself, that his feelings are real? Or is this sudden family too much for both of them to handle?
The odds, as well as members of their past who’ve come out of the woodwork, are against them, but when kids are involved, all bets are off.
Case rushed through the doors of the daycare center as if on a mission. Gabbie was talking to Mandy and a few of the mothers were picking up their children in the lobby when he took Gabbie’s face into his hands and kissed with a passion that shook her to her knees.
As his velvet tongue was delving into her yearning mouth, she lost all thoughts of decorum. All those near misses, all those fantasies she’d been having held no weight against the feel of his lips on hers. His fingers tangled in her hair that she had left down and just when she thought she was going to explode, he separated their lips, but still held her close.
“There will never be a perfect moment to kiss you. I have two kids now that will destroy any romance I try to bring into your life. But I will bring it as often as I can because you’re the first thing ever that instantly felt right. And it isn’t for the last few weeks. It’s for the last few years. If I’d met you a year ago I would have felt the same way I do right now. I want you. I hope you can handle me and all issues I have right now because I’ll give up a lot, but I won’t give up you.”
“Marry him. Marry him now,” Mandy ordered and Gabbie slapped her away but kept her eyes locked on Case’s.
****major sigh**** Just saying…
Just read the excerpt again. Yes again; I’ll wait. *whistling* *tapping fingers*
Okay, wait over. If you do not rush out and buy this book and devour it in one sitting like I did, there is something seriously wrong with you. Just kidding…maybe. The story of Chase and Gabbi is already in my top 10 books of the new year. Its sweet, realistic, sexy and some parts are just laugh out loud funny.
Who doesn’t love a single dad? Their sexy, they have completely opened their hearts to their child(ren) not to mention that they have no love life to speak of. Chase was dealt a hand that he never expected. With the death of his parents, he is now the guardian of two adorable twins. He tries to make it work but has to make a tough decision. Keep them and raise them or give them up. Enter Gabbie…
Gabbie is the “mother” that these children need in their life. As a day care provider, she’s the perfect “mother” to the twins but can she also be the perfect mate for Chase? With her insecurities rolling around in her head, she’s not so sure. Throw in their pasts and people that don’t them to work, how much are they willing to fight for their happiness?
Good gosh almighty…between the dialogue, near perfect plot and characters that are totally believable and realistic, I got lost in the story. I love it when an author sets the tone early in a book and grabs my attention and never lets me go. I’m still thinking of this book and I read it over a week ago when I was sick. It was the great pick me up when I was dying with the flu. I was inspired and I cried in parts.
I cheered for their HEA and for the happiness of the twins. Oh the twins…they literally stole the book away when they were there. They were precious, cute and laugh out loud funny. They reminded me of my own son when he was two. *sigh* Such a great age. I actually like books with children in them and the twins do not disappoint.
I can not highly impress upon you to read this book. A beautiful book about a couple that have to figure out if they are cut out to be parents and for their own perfect family. And isn’t family, no matter how you got to be that family, worth it in the end?
