Jared's Promise by Barbara McMahon
This is a heart-felt story of love, loss, friendship and responsibility. Jared is a man who is dedicated to living his life without ties. He's caring and honorable, but he's also very stubborn and short sighted. Jenny is sweet, kind, caring and determined. He hired her to be temporary nanny for his friends baby, but from the minute he sets eyes on her, she turns his life upside down. She grew up an orphan and resents his unfeeling attitude towards the baby. He thinks that he's doing what's best. She falls hard for him and baby, but he does everything he can to concentrate on his recovery, and finding a home for the baby. They often bicker about his responsibility to the baby, she thinks his friend would want him to raise her, he thinks she's better off elsewhere. While his feelings gradually shift, he stays determined to back overseas. It does have a HEA, but he literally waits until the last minute. It's a must for your TBR list.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
