Synopsis


Mary Persephone Hail
Mary—well-wished-for child.
Persephone—destruction.

Hail—well that speaks for itself.

Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child. Persephone, though? Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail? Yeah, that’s just the final f-you.

The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete.
Or so he thinks.

What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask? Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival. Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain.

Dante’s a bad person. He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds. Karma is finally catching up to him.

This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives.

He doesn’t want this child.

But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not.

With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life. But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind. Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

REVIEW

Ah...Dante's story!  So sweet.

Now I was a little confused at the beginning because I wasn't sure whether it was talking about his wife, his daughters mother or the woman he is falling for, Cobie.  There was a brief period where they were all muddled together.  After a one night stand Dante finds out he has a daughter but since the mother is dying of cancer she drops her off with him.  But that little girl saves his life and pulls him out of the memory of his wife and children.  Then he has to save Cobie from destroying herself as she is also struggling with cancer and mixed up with a bad crowd.  Can Cobie and Dante save each other?  Can Mary save them both?

This book was my favorite so far.  I am intrigued as to what attracts these men to these women who need saving in some way.  However this one was a little different as both Dante and Cobie were saved by a baby.  Needless to say I absolutely love these characters and I can't wait to read more.  This is an interesting family full of interesting relationships.  The flow and pace were good.  The plot was amazing.  There were just a few small flaws that were easily over looked.

I will be adding Lani to my must read list.  She has an intriguing writing style and I look forward to reading each book.  I do still need to go back and read the first two or three books.  But the good thing is these work extremely well as stand alone novels as well as a series.
