“‘Accidental Father’ was a story I wanted to like, but really had issues with it. Julianne is in Paris both for work and also to confront the father of her nephew. Her sister Marissa was killed in Afghanistan and left Liam in Julianne’s care. Julianne believes that Alex needs to own up to fatherhood and help in supporting Liam. What neither Julianne nor Alex knows is that Marissa lied to both of them. To Alex, she never told him she was pregnant, and to Julianne that Alex did know of the baby and abandoned them. After the misunderstandings get sorted out, things take a different turn. Alex works for a very important agency aiding people in war torn countries and has more than once feared for his life. Now, he fears for the life of his son.
So he exudes his power and has Liam and Julianne brought to the small island of St. Michael, where his brother is the crown prince to keep him safe, and its then that Julianne and Alex need to work together to protect Liam.
The story itself was quite good. Interesting and fun to read. But I found it short. There could have been so much more written and I felt like the author just rushed through it. The information about the orchestra and such was very informative and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I liked the characters, Julianne as the ‘mother hen’ only wanting to keep Liam safe and Alex was strong and sexy.
My only other issue was the cover. Now this may seem silly but I am of the school of though that the cover should represent a scene from the book, and in this case, it didn’t at all. The characters in the book were actually complaining of the cold, yet on the cover they are frolicking on the beach?? Maybe I missed that scene or something but it just seemed too out of place for me.
