Blurb: A promising baseball star gives it all up to raise his sister’s son. A millionaire at odds with his family searches for his own son and finds more than he thought possible.
A promising baseball star, Dimitri Michelakakis, left it all behind when his troubled sister called, begging him to raise her baby boy. Now a chef and a single father, he runs the successful catering arm of local bistro, Terra Verde. Dimitri never suspected that one of his catering jobs would lead him to a new love.
Since receiving a note about his son’s birth, millionaire Mason Harrison has done everything he can to find the baby and the man who raised him as his own. Could finding his son mean finding the family Mason has always longed for?
Review: Dimitri gave everything up to help his sister out, even raising her child and adopting him. He makes a new life for himself and Theo in Hamilton River and they are both very happy. Mason has been looking for his son and the man who has raised him and has finally found them. At first, he just wants to know them, but then he puts a proposition to Dimitri that he hopes won’t be turned down.
This is a lovely family story that has a lot of child interaction that adds to the story. Mason has finally found his son, he has had Dimitri investigated and can find nothing wrong so doesn’t want to take Theo away from him. he tricks Dimitri into meeting him and bringing Theo along so he can meet him, he eventually explains and offers a proposition to Dimitri. Dimitri is shocked and scared; he can’t lose his beloved Theo he decides that he needs time to think but agrees that Mason has a right to get to know Theo.
These characters were brilliant and I absolutely loved Theo and Moru (his little bear). I really enjoyed this story even though it did have a Harlequin and Mills & Boon feel to it. Actually, if I am honest I loved the plot and story-line. I loved that Dimitri made Mason wait and they got to know each other. I loved how involved Theo and Moru were in the story. I loved Sherlock and Watson as well. what I didn’t love was that there was a bit too much in the way of descriptions and details sometimes and it took my attention away from the story.
The story was well written and the characters took their time with the relationship. Yes, the attraction was there from the start, but Dimitri finding out the truth about Mason made him think long and hard about getting involved with him. it was nice that they spent time together as a family before the relationship got off the ground. The sex between them is hot and sensual and they make a great couple.
So this one I will recommend to those who love family stories, cute little boys, a sexy chef, a handsome millionaire, hot sex and a great story line.
