Not the Boss's Baby (The Beaumont Heirs #1)

 Not the Boss's Baby 
What the boss wants...
As the oldest son, Chadwick Beaumont has sacrificed everything for the Beaumont's company, but he swore he'd never follow in his father's philandering footsteps. So, for years, he's dutifully kept his distance from the temptation outside his office door--his beautiful secretary Serena Chase.

But now everything has changed. The family business is in jeopardy. His personal life is in shambles. And his sexy assistant is suddenly single--and flirting. Chadwick is tired of doing what's expected. It's time for him to go after what he wants. And what he wants is Serena--even if she's expecting another man's child.


****Harlequin Desire via NetGalley provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review****
Chadwick has spent his life trying not to be his and working at the family company making money only to have his siblings waste it, he has watched his secretary and secretly wanted her but has put it out of his as she is off limits. His life is being turned upside down with a vindictive ex-wife, vultures at the door wanting the businesses and all he wants his Serena. Serena has wanted Chadwick for years but has put her attraction to him in a box and tightly locked it, now out of a long relationship she finds out she is pregnant, sparks ignite and the two of them find themselves wondering if it’s possible to have what you want.  I was on a horror/thriller reading binge for a couple days before I picked this book up for something light and fluffy, when I finished it I just went  

 It was so sweet that I couldn’t help myself, Chadwick was just so dang adorable at times and then there was the other times when he was getting his sexy on that I had to do a double take because I didn’t think he had it in him, butoh boy he did. I loved Serena, she may have been hard headed at times but I could see that she was trying to do what was best for everyone in each situation and while I sometimes got annoyed with her I still had to like her for standing up for herself. The storyline itself is not a new one, but the way it is written and the little details added to it but it new, you can see how the author adds her own  twists to the story and makes it her own. Overall this was a really good quick read; it will be fun to see what happens with the rest of the Beaumont family.
