3 1/2 stars
I’m a sucker for a single dad romance, so I was excited when I saw this one. Austin Prescott is a sports agent living his best bachelor life. He needs a new Executive Assistant, and he finds a great one in Quinn Stone.
Austin comes home to find a baby girl on his front porch. He freaks out and calls his trusted assistant Quinn to come help. It turns out that Quinn has a lot of experience in childcare. She spent most of her childhood raising her siblings and cousins. So she’s a pro at helping Austin. Only problem is because of being forced to raise her siblings, she has decided she doesn’t want kids of her own.
Austin and Quinn had good chemistry. I believed their relationship. To be honest, this probably would have been a 4 1/2 star read if this book would have been told in the first person. With a topic as deeply personal as a surprise baby, reading the thoughts of the actual character, and not the author, make a huge difference.
The reason this is a 3 1/2 star for me is because I had a hard time connecting with Quinn. She was, in my opinion, incredibly insecure, despite being a) very skilled at childcare and b) very good at her job.
I immediately connected with Austin, and felt that his insecurity when it came to a helpless baby was very believable. Austin had a large family that he was very close too, and I believe his brother Damon is getting a book as well.
Over all this book was an enjoyable read.
