This bad boy just got an eight-year-old surprise...
Cultural archeologist Lindsay Reynoso is in a small seaside town in California to evaluate an old mansion. When the home's owner shows up to "help" the evaluation along, Lindsay is furious. Especially as the owner is former bad-boy tennis star Christopher Brandt...her one-time fling and the father of Lindsay's son. Only he doesn't know it.
As far as Chris is concerned, the old mansion is tied to a past he's better off leaving behind. He'd rather bulldoze the thing and move on. If only his gorgeous consultant would let him. Even while fighting over the demolition, the chemistry that once brought them together is smoldering stronger than ever.
But honesty is very important to Chris, and Lindsay has an eight-year-old secret...
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I love secret baby stories; I’d even say it’s one of my favorite plot lines. Unfortunately in this instance it didn’t work for me. At all.
To me there was no chemistry between the H and h. Lindsay had a crush on hot guy Christian during high school, and then followed his career when he turned pro playing tennis. When she met him at a college party she took the chance to make her dream come true… though a one-night stand that turned into unexpected pregnancy was certainly not her fantasy.
When Christian never called after their night together and she tried to get in touch with him only to be turned down by other people, she decided to raise her child on her own.
Now she is doing a job for his construction company and against all her hopes, she gets to work with him.
Chris at first finds her familiar but doesn’t really remember her (ouch), then he does but it seems he is unaware of them sharing a child.
By the time Lindsay comes to the conclusion that he never knew about her Nicky, some time has passed and now she needs to figure out if Chris is a person she wants in her son’s life.
Now there seems to be a rekindling of feelings on both their parts but I didn’t get it. I also didn’t agree with the way she handled the whole “I have something to tell you but it can wait” situation. Then Chris went from hot to cold faster than me during PMS.
While A Touch of Chardonnay didn’t work for me personally, it doesn’t mean it won’t work for everybody else.
