An Heir to Bind Them by Dani Collins – a Review
Off the boss’s payroll and into his bed
Jaya. Her name reverberates around Theo Makricosta’s head in time to the whirring blades of his private helicopter. He must find her; only Jaya can help with the care of his infant niece and nephew…. It’s not because he hasn’t stopped thinking about the single night of mind-blowing passion he shared with the exotic beauty
Jaya Powers couldn’t refuse her gorgeous millionaire Greek boss when she worked for him, and she can’t refuse him now! Only this time she has a secret. Their night together had consequences that will change Theo’s perfectly ordered existence forever!
An Heir to Bind Them by Dani Collins is a contemporary romance. The story begins as Jaya goes to see her boss to hand in her resignation. We meet our hero, Theo, who is surprised by Jaya’s leaving. He finds out though that her cousin is dying, and she needs to go home and take care of her. Theo, has never really paid much attention to Jaya, other than knowing that she was a very good worker, and he will miss her expertise. Jaya has always had an attraction to Theo from afar, and somehow when they say their goodbyes, the two of them end up in a wild night of steamy sex. Jaya found herself shocked at how she reacted to Theo, as she had a bad experience years before.
18 months later, Theo is stuck taking care of his nephew & niece, as his family is stuck overseas. He texts Jaya for help. She comes to his rescue to help with the children, and brings him a surprise.
What follows is an interesting story of a man who has everything, wealth, power, women; but it is the bad memories of his childhood and his father that prevents him from having any kind of relationship. Theo doesn’t know what love is, and is fearful of having children, because of his father.
Jaya at first blocks her feelings, thinking Theo doesn’t care for her. But as they help one another with the children, she learns more about his past, and tries to help him overcome those fears. By the time his family returns to take the children, Theo has softened his heart and finds himself more comfortable around the children.
Will Jaya be able to get Theo to open his heart to love? Can Theo be able to rise above his fears of being like his father? There are many obstacles in this relationship, but I really did like Theo’s family, who were very supportive.
I wanted our couple to have their happy ending, and they were both very stubborn, causing me to get annoyed at times. However, this was a nice romance, and Dani Collins is a very good writer, and I recommend this book.
