CEO Derek Messina has suddenly been
thrust into a position he is not ready for – fatherhood.
When a little girl was left on his doorstep weeks ago, Derek
assumed naturally that the baby was his brother’s
offspring. To find out that he was wrong is disconcerting
at the least and terrifying at the most. Derek plans to be
a father in more than name only but knows nothing about
babies. Turning to his trusted assistant Raina for help,
Derek is shocked to find out that she has quit. Derek
doesn’t know what to say but anything is better than nothing
and so he does what he does best – he negotiates.
I found myself laughing out loud when
Derek was told he was a father. I can imagine the complete
horror of a man used to doing what he wants, when he wants,
and with whom he wants. While some call those type of men
selfish, I am a bit more tender hearted. I think they are
just uninformed about such things and only need to be
taught. And that is where Raina comes in. Trusted
assistant, sister to a brood of siblings, daughter – she
knows what Derek needs to learn but having been taken
advantage of most of her employed life as Derek’s assistant
is a hard thing to get over. Especially since she is in
love with her boss.
With hearty laughs, some tears, and big
smiles I finished Baby Benefits in one
sitting. Emily McKay is an automatic Silhouette author for
me. I have yet to read anything of hers and not liked it.
I am looking forward to the next installment of this cute
