Maya is willing to give up Nic, so his little girl can get to know her real mother enough though it will tear her apart. Nic doesn't want Mya to go anywhere, but stay in his life and become a mother to his little girl.
This book is an interracial romance. It has a lot of emotions and feelings throughout the book: love, heartbreak, loss, disappointment and misunderstandings between the main two characters. But they find their way back to each other and it's a wonderful read to find out how they do. Once you pick it up you won't put it down. This is a keeper.

In Grant Park, children's software programmer Maya Hughes comes home in a steady downpour when she notices a child soaked and waiting at her neighbor's home. She invites seven-year-old Taylor Whitfield to dry off and warm up in her place until her father, a surgeon, comes home. Though they met once before, Maya coaxes the child into her house with the help of her dog Hamlet and her cat Horatio.
Taylor's father, Dr. Nick Whitfield, hurries home when he learns that his daughter's caretaker was hospitalized due to an accident. Nick and Maya are attracted to one another and the precocious Taylor pushes them closer to each other. However, she spent seven years failing to have a child, which resulted in her marriage ending while he fears falling in love ever since his first wife died during childbirth.
Readers who wish for an old fashioned, delightful contemporary romance need look no further than Seressia Glass' warm tale. Two individuals deserving of love, but almost phobic about avoiding the risk makes for a fine story especially with charming protagonists like the lead couple. Though Taylor acts too wise for her age at times, the hearts of fans will reach out to her. Fans will value this appealing novel.
