Secret Father - A Sweet Romance by Suz deMello - Review


Secret Father - A Sweet Romance


Secret Father: A Sweet Romance by renowned storyteller Suz deMello. When Linda Travers was fourteen, Dave Madsen, then age seventeen, rescued her from a snowy death. They later met at an end-of-term party at their college and lost their virginities to each other before Dave left the country. 

And now...Despite spending her teenage years mooning over Dave, Linda Travers has moved on with her life. Being left pregnant and alone will force that on a gal. Age twenty-five, she lives in their hometown with their six-year-old, Mac. Then Dr. Dave Madsen reappears. He's spent the last years exploring in the Amazon, searching for new plants and medications. A vicious snakebite has left him needing rehab from the only physical therapist around—Linda. 

Their college lovemaking was the first time for both, so Linda and Dave remember each other. She’s amazed to feel the same old anger, hurt, and need. Less emotional, Dave’s curious about Linda, wondering why she didn't leave her address and phone number for him when what they’d shared had been so good. Neither totally believes the explanations the other offers. 

Since the rescue, Dave was always Linda’s hero, but she doesn’t know him anymore. Is he worthy of fathering their son? And what of their love? Can they create a future…together as a family? 

My Review

I liked this book it was a sweet second chance romance read.

Dave and Linda were each others first, after the occasion Dave swans off and becomes a natural world explorer, not realising Linda has had his baby.

Linda got pregnant on her first time and now has a cute boy called Mac that's the image of his dad. 

When Dave finds himself back in the town he soon meets Linda again and wants to find out more about her - he's got some big news coming!

Dave takes the news of being a dad well and dives straight into parenthood. he also sets his sights on Linda but that's nothing to be easy.

I did like this book but had a couple of issues -

* Dave jumped straight into his kid's life - one minute no dad, next full on dad - felt too quick for me 

* Dave wasn't the most romantic in his way of saying why they should be together, that's the scientist part of him coming out though!

* Dave tells his kid mummy and daddy need some time to plant some baby seedlings or words to that effect, it turned my tummy to be honest

Those points make it sound like I didn't like Dave, I did and his wooing gets better through the book. 

Linda, keeps her walls well cemented and makes Dave's job hard, he certainly is persistent and turns out his patient too.

This is a sweet read that I enjoyed reading today. 

3.5 star's
