Malcolm Cobb is a single father raising twin teenaged girls. Thank God he has Mamma Claudette to help him out because these little girls are a handful. He is also a workaholic, owning not one but two thriving businesses. After a bad marriage Malcolm has sworn off the committed relationship thingy, that is until the beautiful, voluptuous Cilla Jameson walks into his favorite coffee shop. It is just something about her that captures his attention leaving him searching her out for more.
Cilla has had her share of dead end relationships and is unsure if she should even give Malcolm the time of day. Since Cilla’s track record has proven to be full of bad second guesses she figures why not have a little fun and soon finds herself at the hottest Jazz and Blues Club in Raleigh.
On their first date Malcolm proves to be everything that Cilla does not want in a man, especially the part about him being a single parent of two precocious daughters. Unable to help herself, though, she is mesmerized by this sexy man with many hidden talents.
I love how Malcolm didn’t waste any time in going after what he wanted. Deep down he knew that Cilla was just the type of woman for him, although he was a little apprehensive initially. He soon learned just how valuable Cilla was to him and his daughters. I also love how the author addressed the issue of blended families and how it can be difficult to join a ready-made family, but it can be done successfully. My most favorite part was watching Cilla trying to find a balance between keeping the girls’ devastating secret and being true to the man she had fallen in love with.
An excellent read!
