The Millionaire Daddy ProjectHe takes control...and gives all kinds of pleasure

In the space of about a second, successful restaurateur Dane Bergman has gone from millionaire playboy to daddy. Now he's the sole guardian of a very adorable and willful four-year-old child, and he's counting on his executive assistant, Pamela Atwater, to save his ass. Even if it means bringing her along on a month-long ocean-side retreat...

Pamela Atwater prides herself on being the perfect assistant. Whatever Dane wants or needs, she's there—pretending to ignore Dane's golden charm and drop-dead gorgeousness. On vacation, however, Pamela sees a side of Dane she never imagined. And it's a side that tempts her to cross the line between professional and personal. But is one month enough time to prove to Dane that his perfect assistant might just be his perfect match?

     What a way to have your life change in a matter of hours.  In the morning your ruling your kingdom and in the evening your trying to wrap your head around the fact that the woman that you thought you could have let your guard down to love has died.  Then to find out that the two of you had a child together that you never knew about and she will now become yours.  You were just out talking among your loyal subjects. By afternoon your whirling in an under toe of which you have no control.
     That would be Dane Bergman’s life right about now.  You see Dane is a self-made millionaire out to stay ahead of memories and block any feelings.  The two main things that worked so well for him was emergence in work and an endless array of women.  Always with an understanding he does not do long term.  Always with his trusted assistant sending flowers at the proper amount of days ending it formally.
     But when a social worker shows up unannounced his ever efficient Executive Assistant Pamela Atwater in her outer office is none too happy.  She is a force to contend with.  She has worked with Dane from the beginning, she knows all his ups and downs, moods, women and business deals.  So, when this woman wants to see him and says it’s personal she has to insist to know why.  When she tells her she’s a social worker and there is a child involved is off puts Pam.  She goes into tell Dane of course he agrees to see her and Pam stays with when she mentions Carman Maria Wilde.  It rings no bells for Pam which if she would have been one of his many women she of all people would have known due to the flowers.  She is his line of defense when the relationships end.  The expression on Dane’s face says he does know her.  At first he denies it could be his because he hadn’t seen her in like 5 years.  Then the worker said that the child is 4 almost 5.
     So, she says she needs a swab sample she takes it closes it up and then Dane swipes it out of her hand with the file.  He puts the swab in his coat pocket and says he will have the results back in 24-48 hours.  Then he says he will send her the results but that no matter what that Carman’s child will be cared for.  She says the files are confidential.  He looks anyway.  He sees she died in a car crash, that she had a daughter.  That she also had M.S.  He slumps into his chair.  Looking back she was one of the women he hadn’t sent on her way then had flowers sent to.  At this point Pam steals the file from him.  At if not noticing, still thinking that he had loved being around Carmen.  She was brash and she was exotic in a way but he thought after she left he could have love her, she could have been the one???
     She had been the closest thing to what he understood love to be.  When Pam’s voice broke into his thoughts he in some ways resented her being there seeing that he was a screw up like she said would happen one day.  Yet, he wanted no one else by his side.  When she tells him he needs to really see something in the file.  It’s a picture of Carmen and the child in question.  She looks just like him as a child.  His hair and his eyes.  He ask her name she says, Danielle.  He says, Little Dani.  That’s what he was called as a kid because his give name was Danny Berg.
     But living in foster homes after foster home both his parents O.D.’d. It was not fun so he changed his name to erase his past.  But it was his last foster home that saved him.  There he was met at 14 with love, understanding, and care.  Anna and her brother Ron took him under their wings and loved him unconditionally.  He is forever grateful.
     Once the worker leaves it is him and Pam.  He starts to panic.  She tells him he can do this that she needs him no one else. Like she and he both knew foster homes at least good ones are far and few between.  But if he really didn’t think he could or really didn’t want to now was the time to decide because she is at an age to be adoptable.  At which he was irate.  Which she was happy about.  She said she would be there to help as much as she could.
     That’s all he needed basically like at work he thought she would just do it all.  Did he have another thing coming!  Pam was not a total push over.  She had a love for him but his child trumped everything even her secret love.
     I loved, loved, loved this book.  A must read.  A fun easy book to read.  I give this 5++++ stars.  Provided by NetGalley.
