The Tycoon's Secret Daughter

The Tycoon's Secret Daughter, Nanny for the Millionaire's Twins

"No man could ever really take Max's place."

Letting his drinking get out of control had been disastrous, but there was no greater regret for Max than losing Kate, his wife.  But he's changed - been sober for years.  He took control over his father's company, made amends to friends and family and is now highly successful.  But when Kate suddenly bumps into him again, his world changes forever.  Because Kate didn't just walk out on him - she apparently took their unborn daughter with her.  Now faced with the enormity of his actions, Max seeks to make it up to all of them.  Kate has been hurt - badly.  Knowing she wasn't enough to keep Max from the bottle had been painful, and she wasn't about to raise her child with that.  Being in hiding for so many years has taken its toll, and she is scared to open herself up again.  Afraid to admit that staying away might have been her own mistake.

My Opinion: This was a sweet and good story of romance, second chances and starting over.  Focused on the emotions and the struggle to forgive and forget there wasn't a lot of action while still keeping a pretty good pace.  Kate lives with fear and an almost false sense of bravado, constantly afraid of the past repeating itself.  Max is a very repentant once-alcoholic and is almost too compliant at times, though he's always sweet.  I often found myself more in charity with him than her, but as the story progressed the one-sidedness faded and I was just rooting for second chances all around.  Their romance was fun and pulls you in.  Light side characters left me anxious to read the next book in the series.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
