24-year-old Bella is in for the shock of her life when her younger sister is killed and she becomes guardian to her 8-year-old Nephew Ethan.
Leaving her job as a porn star and flying to Madison Falls to look after Ethan, Bella starts a new life, and meets Grant, a primary school teacher, and her close neighbour.
Is Bella ready to play Mom though? What will Grant say when he finds out she was a porn star? And can Bella’s life really take a turn for the better now?
This was an okay NA contemporary romance that was also quite a quick read.
Bella was an okay character, although she did come off a little naïve, which is not what you expect from a porn star. She seemed to take her role as Ethan’s new mother seriously though, and did her best for him.
Grant was obviously a good guy, and he really took the time to both get to know, and take care of Bella, which was nice.
The storyline in this book was okay, if a tad predictable in places. I was initially quite shocked that Bella had been working as a porn star, but it did make sense once her background was explored a bit more.
I did wonder how Grant would take the news that Bella was a porn star, especially considering that he was a primary school teacher, and that was one of the main mysteries in the story that kept me wanting to read more!
I did like the ending, although it was a bit cheesy. If you’re a fan of Mills & Boon type romances, you will probably enjoy this.
Overall; a quick NA contemporary romance.
6.5 out of 10.
