This was a fairly mediocre book Although there was nothing horribly offensive about it there wasn t eally anything great about it either I give it about 25 stars The main problem with this book is that nothing happens And while that nothing is happening the characters have very very epetitive inner monologue talks with themselves The book could easily have been half as long without losing anything importantThe premise is that Kate and Max were once married and very much in love But then Max became an alcoholic and their lives took a turn Kate spent years trying to cover Max s inebriated state and worrying that he d gotten in an accident whenever he didn t come home Then she ealized she was pregnant On the night she would have told Max about the baby he was so drunk and violent that he smashed some windows and it made Kate ealize that his dangerous behavior was escalating Instead of telling him about the baby she packed her bags and left She divorced him via lawyers so he wouldn t see her growing belly and kept their daughter Tricia a secret for the next 8 yearsThat was a decent enough backstory for the book but unfortunately nothing half so interesting actually happens in the present day When Kate s father has a mild stroke she comes back to town with Tricia to help and inevitably uns into Max He takes one look at Tricia and ealizes he s a father And that s basically the whole book barring about 250 pages of filler Max is sober and uses the 12 steps to stay on an even keel So even though he s got a ight to be upset that Kate kept his daughter from him he s super understanding about the whole thing Kate had a legitimate eason for unning away from him and taking the baby with her and she s mistrustful of Max when they first econnect but she s fair about letting him see Tricia now that he knows about herThe est of the book is spent on Max visiting with and getting to know his daughter while he and Kate have extremely epetitive inner monologue thoughts Kate goes on and on in her mind about how even though she s very attracted to him they can t go back They just can t She emembers how he broke that vase She emembers the smashed windows They just can t go back there Max meanwhile thinks over and over about how great things were when he was married to Kate but how he knows they can t go back they just can t and he has to accept that Over and over and over they go through these thoughts but it The CEO's second chance Max Montgomery had it all charm good looks and a career as CEO of the family business Marriage to Kate Hunter was the icing on the cake Until a devastating
D I cannot wait to crack it open The Tycoon s Secret Daughter is a simple novel about Max an ex alcoholic man who found his ex wife Kate in a hospital with Trisha a daughter he had never known Apparently Kate left Max after witnessing his drunken age and was pregnant the whole time and Max didn t know about it for years The majority of the plot is about Max wanting to know his daughter and subseuent asking for Kate s forgiveness and econcile their elationshipThe plot the girl have a baby and later the guy find out have been overused in so many Harleuin books and in its entirety it was disappointing for something that was just written and published ecently But eventually I finished the book yesterday in its predictable glory Some eviewers have low threshold on the predictability ange me on the other hand need to ead hundred books with the same plot to endure the unexciting nature of it Its very sad since I eally like the plot with the main male character having a drinking problem and struggling to undo his past but the way the author try to play it up weakened the entire storyline Since its a average omance we all know they ll be together but the problem is Kate gave up to him so easily and Max emained unconvincing in his emotive state I do ead books with characters with serious addiction problems but the author decided to focus the omance aspect of the book instead of Max s problem on psychological level Besides he was an ex drunkard who is destructive that can be enhanced into a better character progression instead of mellowing the matter Harleuin authors need to be decisive and creative with their plots when they have a good start to begin withI never intended to eview this book because I ead through it and only notice several parts until I finish with it But if you wanted the secret child storyline in Harleuin this book is not for you even if you wanted some light eadings Sweet sappy perfect for the mood I was in Was it a literary masterpiece No It definitely was notStill the light omance kept me eading and the characters were pretty likable on their ownAn added bonus was the fact that the setting was ather inventive I was not 100% happy over the way alcoholism was inserted but at least it was not glossed over or forgotten in the end All in all the ead intrigued me enough to keep a look out for the next book in these series And I am very glad NetGalley provided me with this ARC. Ng with adorable Trisha may come naturally but with the shadows of the past still haunting him ecapturing the heart of the woman he's never stopped loving is uite a different matter.

Ust didn t hold any weight All of this was told ather than shown Kate didn t seem the least bit traumatized by the marriage She talksthinks a lot about how ough it was but she doesn t ACT like someone who d been through a ough time She s not flinching away from Max out of fear or doing anything that a true survivor of this situation would do I just didn t buy it And since those allegedly traumatizing memories were the only eason she wouldn t get back together with Max it just didn t workI also have to wonder just where the heck the editor was on this book The wording was so so SO epetitive I lost track of how many times the author discussed Max or Kate s heart His heart stopped Her heart exploded His heart swelled Her heart sueezed Over and over and over There are other ways to convey a character s emotions without using the word heart Seriously if you made a drinking game out of taking a shot every time their hearts did something you d have alcohol poisoning before the 13 markOn the whole it was just a boring book There was no eal conflict Both Kate and Max were easonable good people and they got along fine ight from the start The climax at the end was barely a blip since nothing actually happened They just kept ight on being easonable and good The end Truth be told I was a lot interested in the tidbits we got on Max s brother Chase than I was in Kate and Max s story See my eview at Smart Bitches Trashy Books here smartbitchestrashybookscomblogrita A sweet omance that kept me eading all night longSecond chance omances always go straight to my heart This one is sweet I can totally understand how Kate feels She doesn t want to get involved with her alcoholic ex husband Yet she finds that in the seven years he s a new manMax is an alpha hero who makes my heart pitter pat He knows he messed up in his past and lost the one thing that made him happy Kate Little did he know he lost a daughter too Once he finds out he spends time with his little girl and his ex wife and finds that his heart never gave up on the love he had for Kate and opens up even with a love for his daughter Although I usually prefer steamy omances this story had it s sensual moments with a closed door policy common for Harleuin Romance So I knew what I was getting into What I love even are series books and was pleasantly surprised that Max has a brother Chase with a book of his own It s already sitting on my nightstand an.
