Can she heal his broken heart?
Allen McKane is crawling out from the ashes. After losing his wife in childbirth, he stopped caring about anything but business, staying in his private cave of grief and guilt and ignoring the son who looks too much like his dead wife. After a wake-up call in Singapore, he's finally moving forward, getting to know the son that he's neglected all these years. Slowly and surely, he's pushing past his grief and letting go of his tragic past.
That's when he meets Valentina Baez. She makes his heart start again, a heart that he thought he buried with his wife.
Valentina is a curvy consultant who never expected to meet a billionaire dressed in khakis at a baseball game. She was surprised to see his gang tattoos, and they only meant to spend a single weekend together.
But when she realizes that she's pregnant, will that turn into a lifetime?

I loved the voice and the storyline was amazing. and very emotional..
I almost did.. but run out of free time. lol
I loved the guys voice for this narration. And I liked that it had a male and female narrator. My heart ached for Alan when I found out what he went through. That would be so hard. Anyone would want to do what he did as far as his son. Idk how I would cope. But he should've still thought of his son and had more dealings with him. I got so upset with Alan. Did he think Trouble was just supposed to instantly wanna be a family after twenty something years? Of course, nannies is all the kid ever knew and was probably better off. And he never lacked for anything. I really liked Valentina. When she told him she was pregnant, I felt so sorry for her because of his reaction. Don't wanna spoil it but even after all they went through after that and almost dying, I don't think I could've forgiven that easy. That was pretty bad what he said. But all in all, I loved the ending. I do wish we would've heard more reaction from Trouble. He was kind of just answering in yes or no. We never got to know what he was thinking or his feelings. But I'm sure that's how it would be with a parent wanting to start over. The parent would need to be the one to work for it after being absent all those years. And I noticed that there's other books in this series. One about Trouble and his lady. I can't wait to check them all out. I think I will see about the audio on them.
The back story in the middle of the book was too involved. It was like a whole different story.
I enjoyed Noel Harrison as Allen.
No follow up necessary. There are many chapters in the middle of the book devoted to Allen and his dead wife. It ended with a commitment to a new life.
While I enjoyed the story, there was a lot of extraneous information or items that were describe in too much detail not pertinent to the story. The threat/conflict at the end did not feel resolved.
