He wanted so desperately to be able to handle everything on his own and didn't want to admit he needed help. Having lost her mother, Brooke doesn't want to let her daddy out of her sight. I loved seeing Millie step in and begin to bring order out of chaos. Jake came to Crimson because his brothers are there, but he doesn't take advantage of their offers of help. He carries a lot of guilt over things that happened when they were younger and finds it hard to believe that they want anything to do with him. Millie has come to Crimson to visit her sister and deal with some career issues of her own.
I loved seeing the relationship develop between Jake and Millie. There is a simmering attraction that they try to fight at first.
Millie has fears of becoming like her mother, so she keeps a tight hold on her independence. Jake has a fear of letting down anyone who depends on him, so he avoids any kind of relationship. But there is something between the two of them that neither can deny, and they slowly start to open up to each other. I loved seeing Millie bolster Jake's relationship with Brooke and try to show him that all he really needs to do is be there for her.
Jake senses that someone did a number on Millie's confidence in her abilities with children, and in herself. I loved his defense of her at the party and his belief in her when she told him her story. Their feelings for each other grow, but their fears still keep them apart, until a crisis with Brooke brings them back together. I loved Jake's big moment at the end, with the adorable assistance of Brooke. There were some very emotional moments, such as Brooke's acceptance of her mother's death and her intense need to stay close to Jake.
Jake's fear when she went missing and his realization of how much he needs her too was heart wrenching. I also loved seeing Jake mend his relationships with his brothers. There were also some very fun moments, such as his activities with Brooke. I loved some of the things she said so matter-of-factly. I'm looking forward to seeing more of them in later books. Jun 09, Tanya Brown rated it it was amazing. My first read of Michelle Majors and I loved it!

This book was given to me for an honest review by the author and honestly, I read it in one sitting. I didn't want to put it down. Jake finds out he has a 4 yr old daughter right before the mother and him are involved in an aftershock from an earthquake killing her. Millie arrives at the door as a possible Nanny to a scene out of a storybook.

Jake in a tutu trying to get his daughter to quit crying over spilling her juice also in a tutu with a soggy stuffed bunny dripping all over. Little Brooke is glad she has a daddy and can't bear for him to get out of her sight.
The transitioning for Brooke and Jake is taking their toll. Jake in splints from surgery does not know the first thing to do. Well Millie does, aka Fairy Poppins. As the love grows between these 3 characters you can't help but be a cheering section for them. May 09, Niki rated it really liked it. Crimson Good story. The characters were fun to get to know and well developed. I recommend reading this story. Feb 18, TSN rated it did not like it Shelves: did-not-finish , , harlequin-ish.
Everything and everyone was just to "perfect". May 15, Highland-dreamer rated it it was amazing. I really liked this book! While it was of shorter length than what I usually read, I didn't feel like I missed out on anything. The characters were well developed, and the plot flowed along nicely. The author did a great job of catching the reader up during any small gaps in time between chapters while not a big deal, I only mention this because I've read other books where this is done poorly. Many I really liked this book!
I haven't read any of the other books in this series, but now I want to go back and read what I missed as I feel like there were some stuff in the other books maybe between Millie and Olivia that would've helped clear up their current relationship in this book. I couldn't figure out how Millie came from being the "other woman's daughter" to beloved sister. Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and would definitely read a book by this author again.
Jake Travers was a loner. He joined a company that sends him all over the world to help people. At one place a hotel was bombed and a lady he had a baby with died. Jake didn't know anything about the child who is now 4 years old. The lady came to him to tell him about the child.
During the fall of the hotel Jake was trapped and injured his left hand and left leg.
