Baby Surprise For The Billionaire by Jessica Gilmore blurb

Baby Surprise For The Spanish Billionaire is an emotional and romantic read, filled with heart and sexual tension that will bring tears to your eyes as two lonely souls figure out this thing called love in the midst of preparing for the wedding of the year.

I loved this story. It has everything I have come to expect and love from a Harlequin Romance. Romantic. Emotional. Sweet and sensual. There were quite a few times as Leo and Anna interacted and navigated their feelings and pasts that I was moved to tears. I read through tears streaming down my cheeks as Leo and Anna work through their own hurdles to get to each other and their happy ending.

I loved both Leo and Anna. Leo is the antithesis of everything his father brought him up to be quite intentionally. His carefully cultivated wastrel, playboy persona is meant to throw people off the scent of the man he really is. Underneath his shallow exterior is a man who cares deeply and is willing to right the wrongs of his father which he hides from the world. There's also the boy inside who has been neglected and hurt his entire life, who hasn't known love and doesn't know how to love. My heart broke for him as I watched him work through his feelings trying to reconcile the man he thought he was to the man he had become. Once you get past his veneer, Leo is hardworking, resourceful and willing to sacrifice for those he loves. Who wouldn't want a man like that?

Anna is the sensible one in her family. The organized one with lists and plans, looking after her father, coming to the rescue of her mother when their island resort falls into ruin. She carries so much weight on her shoulders. Having been hurt in the past, she hides behind her lists and her plans. Part of Anna's predicament comes from not being open with her family about her feelings and what happened to her which she needs to overcome. Anna needed to realise that she deserved happiness too. She deserved to be loved and cared for as much as the next person. I loved seeing Anna come to some important realisations about herself and her life and watching her take control of it.

This book is utterly romantic and worth the read. I highly recommend it.
