He’s the golden boy with a secret past
When Nicole Adams abruptly cancels their secret fling, Troy Thompson is stunned. The sex between them is sizzling, but she’s ready to move on—find a reliable guy, settle down, pop out a few babies. The thought of Nic in another man’s arms is maddening. And while her agenda freaks him out, Troy knows there’s no one in town nearly good enough for her. No one, that is, except him.
She’s his redemption and his future
Nicole doesn’t regret her sexual romp with Troy, but when he insists on taking the next step with her—marriage and parenthood—she figures he’s out of his mind. Troy? Husband and daddy material? Oh, he’s sexy beyond belief, with the ability to melt her panties with a single command, but the man’s not known for being responsible. Trying for forever with Mr. Frivolous? Everyone thinks it’s a fool’s game.
Everyone except Troy, who’s determined to make Nicole see the real him under the shiny exterior.
Time to see the baby of the Thompson clan fall in love. Everyone over looks Troy Thompson and thinks he can't be serious when in reality he has been towing the line for his entire family for years. He was just so good at it they didn't notice. Then Nicole Adams the women he had been seeing decides she needs to find a serious man and settle down and have babies. When she dumps him it's a wake up call for Troy. After he sees Nicole trying to date guys she thinks are husband material he realizes he can be that guy. Parts of this story felt a little slow to me. I didn't feel enough excitement for the characters at time. I did enjoy Troy trying to get Nicole to realize he was a serious person. He could be a forever guy. Broke my heart when his own family didn't see it right away. Slowly but surely Nicole got to really know him though. Toward the end of the book it really picked up for me and i enjoyed the wrap up of the book. Definitely loved seeing all the characters from previous books showing up too.
