It seems a lifetime ago that Brett Ackerman wanted to share his life with Ella Wales. He really believed he could put his abusive family history behind him…until he realized it would always be part of him. Then he pushed her away. Hard.
Now Ella’s back as part of the High Risk Team at The Lemonade Stand, the unique women’s shelter Brett founded. And she needs his help with a family crisis. But even now, Brett can’t admit he still loves her. Until one night of passion with Ella turns Brett into the one thing he fears the most—a father.
The Good Father (Where the Secrets are safe #6)
This is the sixth book in the series and the first one I have read.
Brett had sold his dot com business and was working/ overseeing many charity organizations. His work kept him very busy. One of the organizations he is on the board with is The Lemonade Stand for abusive women.
Ella was working as a Head nurse in a neo natal unit for high risk infants. She was also part of a high risk team at the Lemonade Stand. One day a grandmother dropped off an infant in need of help. The mother finally came in, Ella of course wanted to help.
Ella and Brett use to be married and the break up was done harshly, abrupt. But because of their work interest they end of back in the same town doing work that brings them together.
I really loved this story, I loved that it shows there are help for women out there and there is also love out there, even when it is hard to realize.
I can’t wait to read the other stories in this series.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
