Career woman Jo, thinks her life is the way she wants it with a boyfriend who doesn’t want kids, which suits her fine, as she doesn’t like them! Then she takes on a design contract for John Sterling, a widower with three children.

These three children are the kids from hell! They are up to all the dodges going. Especially six year old, Jamie. By the end of the story I fell hard for the kids. Stephanie Bond handled them with a sure touch. Jo was a very game heroine with some of the things she tackled including three year old, Billy who would cling round her neck and inform her of his “poopy diaper”,on numerous occasions. As the mothers among us know, it isn’t the favorite chore to have to change one. Needless to say for Jo, it was nothing short of a mightmare

The passion builds between John and Jo, and the children decide she would make a great new mommy. Jo has other ideas. John is hard to resist, though he is a gorgeous hunk of a man. The humor in the story is excellent I laughed out loud on a number of occasions as I read the story. It is a fine quick read. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon’s relaxation.

Stephanie Bond is a really good author and can always inject humor into her romances without dulling the passion at all. She is also good at creating interesting characters, as they link well with each other and are very believable. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The children, Jamie, Claire, and Billy add so much to the tale.
