Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour.
So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again.
Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself.
But for their daughter.

Can Thea let go of her hang ups of living in a city which only brought her pain and loneliness? Can Logan ever make sacrifices with is job to support the love of his life and their child?
I am in love with this story. SO MUCH LOVE!!! It was such an emotional roller coaster, I think I still have whiplash.
Thea is a character I admire. She came from nothing and managed to make a comfortable life for herself and her kid. She didn’t have it easy and she still has issues that trouble her, but her sheer determination made me fall in love with her. She is so strong and always stands up for what she believes in.
Logan is probably my favourite “recently discovered he’s a dad” character. I actually love the way his relationship with Charlie grew. It wasn’t a magical fix, it took time and effort and Logan put all of it in spades. Also, he’s so so hot and damn the dirty talk? I AM LOVE!!!!!
I can’t wait for more stories in this series. I know they are going to be as amazing as this was.
He stared at me for a long moment. “You’re sure she’s mine?”
“Then that’s good enough.”
“I—really?” I blinked. He didn’t want to verify paternity? He just . . . trusted me?
He nodded. “Really.”
“I swear, I tried to find you, Logan. On my life, I swear it. But the hotel wouldn’t give me your name no matter how much I begged. And you paid cash for your drinks and never mentioned your last name. I tried, but I just . . . didn’t know where to start.”
“It’s not your fault. I believe you.”
The sincerity in his voice made my throat burn. Goddamn it. I was going to cry.
I’d worked so hard not to cry today. I’d fought to keep my emotions in check and my head from spinning out of control. But this was going to make me break.
I wanted so badly for Logan to believe that I hadn’t kept Charlie from him intentionally. The fact that a man like him would trust someone like me without proof meant more than he’d ever know.
“Thank you,” I choked out past the lump in my throat.
“So, um, is Charlie inside with your husband? Or boyfriend?”
The urge to cry disappeared and I barked out a laugh. “Smooth.”
He chuckled. “It’s been a long day for me. Give me a break, will you? This morning I was in New York, then I came to Montana for a business meeting and discovered a daughter. I’m off my game.”
