New York Times bestselling author Melody Anne’s sizzling novel of ex-lovers locked again in a game of hearts.
There was a time when surgeon Kian Forbes would have surrendered every cent of his vast family fortune if it could make Roxie Gilbert happy. That was before she skipped town, broke his heart, and sent him spinning through a string of forgettable one-night stands. He never even knew he’d fathered a child—with Roxie’s sister, no less. But in the wake of tragedy, little Lily needs a home. And Kian wants his daughter. But Roxie’s not giving in or giving up without a fight.
Fearful of her intense feelings for Kian, Roxie ran. Now that her sister’s death has brought her home, she intends to take custody of her niece and avoid Kian—easier said than done on both counts. With their wealth and power, the Forbes men are accustomed to winning. And as she and Kian are forced to spend time together for Lily’s sake, saying no to everything he wants proves impossible…even though it means risking both their hearts all over again.
This is my first book Melody Anne, and it was a really good one. It’s the first installment in the Undercover Billionaire series, and this one particular centers around a couple that has history, and a tragic incident brings together again, but will it work this time? Or will there just be more heart break?
Kian Forbes, a surgeon and Roxie Gilbert a nurse, were in a serious relationship a few years back. Roxie up and left, with very little notice, or basically little reason why. Drowning his sorrows and having countless one night stands is how Kian dealt with the hurt of Roxie leaving. One night while working, a young woman and her daughter are brought into the hospital. Kian recognises her as Roxie’s sister. He was unable to save her, but her she dies, she tells him the little girl is his daughter.
These two, are something else. But I’ll start with Roxie, she is a mess, she’s lost her sister tragically, she has a niece she doesn’t know and will now be a mother to, and the man she left behind is the father. It would be a lot for anyone to handle in such a short time. She doesn’t Kian, and it is because of his family and their money. How can she compete with that? What if they try to take Lily, the little girl? I can understand her feelings, but some of the rash decisions she makes just makes me want shake some sense into her. But, I might act the same way if I was in the situation, so…
Now, Kian. He is fierce, loyal, determined and from I can tell, he comes from a long line of strong men who are used to being in charge and certainly not losing. When it comes to Roxie though, it’s different. He genuinely loves her with all hisnheart, even after her leaving and time being out of his life. I couldn’t help but love him after seeing him interact with Lily. It was enough to make your heart melt.
Both Kian and Roxie are so stubborn! Roxie tries to keep her distance, she still loves him. Kian wants her close. Seeing the whole story from both sides was amazing. It was heart breaking to follow them, their feelings, the hurt, the loss was evident. But their love for each other and their love for Lily was something beautiful. And we also did get to meet a couple of Kian’s brothers, so maybe the book will be about one them!
Kian is a heartbreaking but such a beautiful story of second chances at love and family. Fans of contemporary romance who like a little push and pull, you will enjoy this one.
Looking for a little push and pull romance, Kian delivers just that. And packs an emotional punch too. Review for Kian (Undercover Billionaire #1) by Melody Anne @authMelodyAnne #MontlakeRomance #adult #contemporary #romance #review Click To Tweet
