About the Book:
IT’S NOT EVERY DAY YOU LEARN YOU HAVE A NINE-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER
Boston Kincaid’s life is forever changed when he reads the note from Cassidy Trenton, who’s looking for her daddy. Vividly remembering the girl’s mother, Boston is compelled to learn the truth about Cassidy’s paternity.
Single working mother Ellie Trenton is completely bowled over to find her old college flame, whom she hasn’t seen in ten years, loitering on her front porch when she comes home from work one day.
At the sight of each other, Boston and Ellie’s decade apart melts away, and that old chemistry between them flares back to life. But trust doesn’t come easily, and old wounds never healed properly.
Can Boston and Ellie learn to forgive and forget so they can experience the love they never shared, or will child custody battles keep them apart forever?
Deliquent Daddy was so much more than I had anticipated. I expected this to be a love story, but I never expected it to carry the level of emotion baggage that it did. This is not your hot and steamy romance; this is a love story and the miraculous existence of second chances. Boston and Ellie were made for one another. Everything about them perfectly fits with the other, but life is brutal and fate is tricky, so when they parted ways in college life moved one without them. When all of a sudden nine years later a young girl with a yearning to know her Daddy does the unthinkable and reaches out for a man she is not even sure exists. What comes together in this novel is bitter sweet and honest. Having to learn to forgive is the basis to this story, and the outcome is wonderfully perfect. I was little uncertain, because the slower pace that began this book. No sooner than I had this thought the story cranked up the suspense and rushed through the remainder of the pages. I loved every minute of it, and can’t wait to look into more for this author.
