When it comes to relationships, Tess Callahan is gun-shy. An ambitious Atlanta divorce attorney, she’s seen the aftermath of relationships gone bad, which is why she has no time in her life for any man except for Nick Russo. Handsome and exciting, he’s the perfect choice to give her all she desires—including the fact he’s never around long enough for things to get complicated. Until suddenly they do.
Nick Russo has the world. His job as a photographer takes him everywhere, and he wouldn’t give that life up for anyone, not even the beautiful and brilliant Tess Callahan. Or so he thinks. An unexpected pregnancy is about to bring everything into focus, a brighter and more colorful world than he ever thought to imagine. The possibilities are endless, and they’re something he can capture not just on film but in reality.
This is my second book by this author and i was excited to read it after reading the blurb. It didn't disappoint. I was drawn in immediately. Tess and Nick have a no strings attached relationship. A little togetherness outside of the bedroom but most of it spent in it. Perfect right? Both characters have some messed us history that make them a little gun shy the in feelings department. They each both have crazy busy careers. Tess a divorce lawyer who sees marriages end daily and Nick as a world traveling photographer. Nick has to leave on a job and decides he needs to cool it with Tess for a while. He's feeling more for her than he should. Ignoring her phone calls it's seven months before he sees her again. After running into her at a home improvement store he notices one big difference in her. Tess is pregnant. Very pregnant. That's when the story really gets going. I enjoyed watching Nick and Tess navigate their relationship. When Tess is put on bed rest she has to learn to accept help and let Nick in. Nick has to deal with some issues from his past. While they both come to terms with the fact they are having a baby. Fun at times and emotional at others this book has it all.
