Synopsis

***USA Today Bestselling Author***

"I do," the bride and groom said…and without love they wed.

Jonas Winslow knew nothing about fatherhood, yet he was determined to keep his orphaned nephew. But the boy's aunt, Robin Hampstead, wasn't about to let go of her only remaining family. The solution: a temporary - strictly platonic - marriage…or so they thought.

Their agreement was to share the house and all child-rearing responsibilities, which seemed an uncomplicated arrangement until…Jonas began seeing Robin in a new light, not as a pretend wife, but as a very real woman whose bedroom was enticingly close to his.

An Accidental Family
Average rating

Even though you knew what the end of the storyline would be, it was well written. The love of a child, the sadness of losing someone close and the struggles of trying to raise a child whilst finding yourself. A feel good story.

I've just finished reading this book and did enjoy it. I guess it was quite easy reading and the outcome was as expected, but sometimes you need a bit of light relief and this book gave me that. Robin and Jonas were an unlikely couple to parent a growing boy but of course they made it in the end. albeit with a few hiccups. Quite predictable.

I really enjoy reading Donna Fasano's romance books because she is able to capture true life in her stories. An Accidental Family is such a book. Ms. Fasano does not gloss over tragedy or try to cover up heartache which just adds depth and character to her writing. Add lots of humor and fun and you have a truely great romance. I hope Donna Fasano keeps writing her kind of stories for many years to come.

What I liked most about this story was the mutual respect that grew into a loving relationship. Jonas and Robin were both on the career path, neither looking for a relationship or ready to start a family. Both were grieving in their own ways. Both were hard headed and both were eventually willing to change for the well-being of Tony. Jonas was the more likable character, he was easy going and secure in his abilities to handle things. Robin was more insecure and lacked confidence in her abilities. Tony challenged them both. I would have liked more friend involvement. But seriously Robin didn't really have any close friends. She didn't commit to anything but her career. The turmoil was mostly in her, she had to come to grips with herself, before she could allow herself to be happy and be loved. I love the journeys Ms. Fasano takes us all on in her books. She has an insight into human emotions and tells the most engaging stories. Wow, it looks like I had more to say than I thought I did. :)
