Falling For Her Enemy by Victoria James (2015)
She’s falling for the one man who could destroy everything…
Alex McAllister always dreamed of a life filled with the laughter and love of a family, but being abandoned at a young age left her wary of letting anyone in. Now that she’s settled in Still Harbor, Alex struggles between keeping her distance and the magnetic pull of the handsome stranger who claims he’s the biological father of her adopted daughter.
Hayden Brooks never wanted to be a father. Long hours spent building his family’s real estate empire suits him just fine. But when he discovers an ex put the baby he unknowingly fathered up for adoption, his world crumbles. He tracks the child to Still Harbor with the intention of bringing her home—and comes face to face with his daughter’s stunning adoptive mother.
The paternity test is in. And Hayden’s about to make the most shocking decision of his life, just in time for Christmas
If you like sweet contemporary romances then 'Falling For Her Enemy' should tick all the boxes for you.
I really liked Hayden and Alex. Their initail meeting was very humorous and I found myself identifying with some of Alex's personality quirks. Their developing friendship and eventual romance was fun to follow. I also really enjoyed the circle of friends Alex had surrounded herself with and I would like to read more of their stories.
I would rate this book with 3 out of 5 stars as I felt that the story dragged a little bit. There were no surprises and the story unfolded more or less the way I thought it would.
