The last souvenir small-town girl Gretchen expected from her Chicago vacation was getting pregnant from one night of delight. The sexy, successful CEO she hooked up with told her he wasn't interested in a family, so she never revealed what had happened.
Five years later, Daniel is at the top of his game in both business and womanizing, but he's shaken off his pedestal when a friend hints that he might have a daughter. Daniel heads for the boondocks to uncover the hidden truth—and pick up where he and Gretchen left off. But his fast-paced lifestyle can't compete with Gretchen's idea of a hometown father and husband. When Daniel's career beckons him back to Chicago, he's faced with the decision of his life—go back to his wild bachelor ways or surrender to his sensual desires and stay and build a family.
The Daddy Issue is such a sweet yet sensual read that really kept my attention right from the beginning. Daniel's character was a real go getter and ladies man. When he sees a picture that looks a lot like himself, he decides to pay a visit to Gretchen, a woman that he dated almost five years earlier. Gretchen's character was strong willed and determined not to let her defenses down for anyone. Amy, Gretchen's daughter was such a sweet little girl. I fell in love with her the moment her character was introduced. When you take a small town and throw in lust, loyalty and a lot of indecision, you end up with a very interesting story. Wally's character made me laugh so hard at the way he approached life and his attitude in general. I was very intrigued at how both Daniel and Gretchen dealt with real life issues and emotions and the end of the book was amazing!
This is the first book that I have ever read by Ms. Beck and I will surely be looking into more of her work. She blends very believable characters with a well written plot laces with wit and humor. I can see this story line happening in real life which appealed to me all that much more. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a strong plot line with some adorable kids thrown in. This is a must read, don't miss it!
