Kate Yager never had a father, and she never minded - until her mom died. Now, acting on the name called out on her mother's deathbed, Kate has moved to San Francisco and gotten herself hired by the man she suspects to be her dad. As if a new job, new apartment, and new parent weren't enough, Kate finds herself head-over-heels in lust with a complete stranger she met at an art show. A stranger who, she later finds out, happens to work in her office.
As her relationships with her friends and father grow stronger, Kate has to confront the decisions of her past to find out whether she can love the man who gave her up, love the man who loves her truly, and even whether she can love herself.
This one is a little different than the other novels I have read so far by Heather Huffman. It is more about Kate's internal struggles than anything else. Kate is lost after her mother dies so she moves to a new city to go looking for her unknown father. The instant attraction she feels with Gavin scares her based on past experiences and she tries to keep her distance, but Gavin is patient, persistent, sweet, caring, and makes her laugh. There are a lot of twists in the story, both things from the past and in the present, and Kate has a lot of issues to work through. I enjoyed the story. Gavin is a great character and I love the banter, especially about the age difference!
