High-powered businessman Cameron Shaw doesn't believe in love - until he falls head over heels for beautiful, passionate, and intensely private Martina. She's perfect in so many ways, immediately bonding with his little girl. Martina could be his future bride and a delightful stepmother...if only Cameron weren't blinded by his belief that Shelly, the gold-digging woman he's promised to marry, is pregnant with his child.
No matter how much his friends protest his upcoming marriage to Shelly, Cameron knows he has a duty to his children, so he's determined to see it through.
Will he find out in time that Shelly's lying and Marti's the one who's actually carrying his child? It'll come down to the day of his wedding. After choosing Shelly over Marti at every turn, will he convince Marti she's his world and the only woman he wants?

Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I loved the first two books in this series. I was really looking forward to this one. I so want to beat Cameron to death for terminal stupidity. I do not understand how a man is described to be so brilliant and such a good business man and a good judge of character can turn into a blithering idiot in this book. That said, the book does keep your interest as you just an't believe how utterly dumb someone can be. I am disappointed in this book but will still continue as the first two books were so wonderful... One good thing about this book is that Coleen Marlo done another excellent job with narration.... :)
By having the lead male not be so moronic that he would believe anything told to him by a gold digger. By having the female not be so idiotic that she would subject herself to this jerk. Just wanted to kick both of them.
Yes. I liked the first two books in the series and was looking forward to this book. Makes me wish I hadn't started the series in the first place.
She is a good narrator and I wouldn't mind listening to other work by her. This wasn't her best canvas.
For anyone who listened to first 2 stories, be ready to be annoyed. I felt sorry for Cameron when he was first introduced in the first book and hoped he found someone. Even though he did in this one, I just couldn't care.
Addicted to Audible! I'm always listening to something.
I enjoyed the first two books in the series. This, the third book was extremely disappointing. I expected the female lead, Marti, to be hunted by someone. Not the story here. It is a romance story, with very little mystery or suspense.
I have very little tolerance for infidelity. The main character Cameron is engaged to Shelly (the gold digger), but continues to have sex with Marti, always telling her he is marrying Shelly. By halfway through the book I disliked Cameron and wasn't sure I liked Marti either. She allowed herself to be used by Cameron. Cameron came across as weak and gullible. He is the President of Merrick International for heaven's sake! His character should have had more backbone.
Jack and Sam - loved their parts of this story. My favorite scene was them escorting Cameron out of the hospital.
Not sure what scenes I'd cut, but it definitely needed to be abridged. I felt like I kept reading the same thing over and over.
Skip book 3 in the series, or buy the book and skim through it in an hour. Spoiler alert -- You all know Cameron and Marti will end up together in end, the story is about how they get there. The ending left me empty. All I felt for the main characters was disappointment. Cameron was weak, and Marti didn't seem to have any self respect.
Cameron - he was a total jerk! I'd also cut the gold-digger as well.
NOT worth a credit!!!
