Conflict of interest is an understatement…
Since being disowned by her strict father, Cass Stone has spent her adulthood trying to prove him wrong. Her drive has led to more success than her family ever thought she’d achieve, and life is looking great. Not even an incredible and mysterious one night stand that leaves her a single mom can trip her up…until the father of her baby stumbles back into her life, as sexy as ever.
Logan Alexander hasn’t forgotten the night he spent with Cass two years ago, but he never expects to end up undercover as her assistant. His job saves lives—like it should have saved his brother—and he can’t afford complications. It’s difficult enough to maintain his cover as a carefree wanderer when he realizes his attraction to Cass hasn’t faded…and then he meets Cass’s daughter.

She might as well go for outrageous in answer to his question. She’d stumbled over the fake name, and there was no way he hadn’t noticed because he didn’t seem stupid. Besides, she’d picked the lamest one imaginable. She could blame that much on the alcohol.
“I just got out of prison,” she said. She let out a dramatic sigh as she braced her elbow on the bar and planted her chin in her palm. “You have no idea what a relief it is to finally meet a good-looking man who isn’t dressed in a Corrections Canada uniform.”
His eyes lit up like twin blue lasers as he played along. “Good-looking, huh? What were you in for?”
“Overenthusiasm with a bullwhip and handcuffs. Something might have been mentioned about ‘inflicting permanent physical and emotional scars on the victim.’”
He sniffed in disgust. “The guy was a sissy if he couldn’t handle a little domination.”
She drained the last of her drink and slid the empty glass across the bar toward him. She lifted her chin, sat up straight on the stool, and met those twin laser beams head on. “Who says it was a guy?”
“Now I’m intrigued.” He took the glass but didn’t offer her another. Instead, he got out the fountain gun and filled two tall tumblers with club soda and ice. He passed her one, then tapped the bottom of his to the side of hers. “Cheers. Good luck staying straight with your probation.”

ooooooooooooooooo what a great read!
Whenever I read a romance book that involves a child, I get all giddy. The child just makes the story so happy and heart-warming LOL and Olivia was just awesome!
The chemistry between Cass and Logan jumped right out of the pages for me. It felt real. I loved every minute of it.
The story itself was easy to read. it was quick and witty and very romantic.
I really liked this book! I look forward to more Paula Altenburg novels!
Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read this in exchange for an honest review!
