Trauma. Two broken souls. And a chance at love they didn’t see coming.
Millie is a single mom who doesn’t have the time – or the trust – to date. After experiencing a violent assault as a teen, she’s determined to move on and stay focused on what’s important. But when she meets the mysterious Maxwell, Millie starts to rethink her priorities.
Maxwell is her enigmatic boss who always seems to know exactly what Millie’s thinking. No stranger to trauma himself, he’s spent his entire life alone. Until he meets his new employee, Millie.
With one look, Maxwell knows she and her daughter are his one chance at happiness. Driven and determined, he wants to give Millie everything she ever wanted, along with the love she didn’t know she needed.
Millie will have to choose between the safe world she has created and the chance to build a new life with the man of her dreams. But can she trust Maxwell with her heart or is he running a scam?
Can two individuals overcome their traumatic pasts and find love?
Don’t miss Magic Man by Ashley Hastings. If you like steamy romance with a dash of darkness, then this book will have you staying up late to finish reading Maxwell and Millie’s love story.
Millie may be young but she has been through things most would never wish on their enemies; she has done what she can to raise her daughter and that means men have been pushed to the back. Add that in to her lack of trust in the male gender anyway and it’s no wonder she’s single. Then she meets Maxwell – and the attraction is instantaneous. That doesn’t mean she’ll let her guard down though! Maxwell can’t deny that he wants Millie, even if she comes with a daughter. The hard part will be earning Millie’s trust and getting her to believe him.
I am a huge fan of this authors books so when I had a chance to review this – I didn’t even read the synopsis, just saw the author & said ‘Yes Please!’. Her heroines are sweet and lovable while her Heroes are strong and assertive. This book was a fairly quick read – I think I was able to finish it in a day – but the timing/pacing of the story was steady and mostly believable. I was shocked that Millie was willing to let Maxwell into her life as quickly as she did – but when the Hero is as persistent as Maxwell I guess it would be understandable. If you have read His Wife or Ride With Me then you will get a chance to revisit those characters. I really enjoyed the time I spent in the story and I wish there was more to it so of course I can’t wait to see what comes next.
