I received this book from NetGalley and Harlequin in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
USA TODAY bestselling author Janice Maynard takes readers to a holiday hideaway in her new Billionaires and Babies book.
All business, all the time, is billionaire Leo Cavallo’s motto. So two months of forced relaxation is certainly not the CEO’s idea of a Christmas bonus. Then he meets his neighbor, the irresistible Phoebe Kemper, and a storm forces them to become roommates. Suddenly, the holidays are looking a whole lot brighter.
But beautiful Phoebe isn’t living alone. She’s babysitting her infant nephew. Somehow, playing temporary family is surprisingly appealing. But what will Leo choose when it’s time to go home?
I loved this book, Phoebe needed a change and Leo was perfect to reintroduce her into the new and improved world. She was trying to change that’s for sure and the baby helped a lot, but I think she needed a man to realise not everyone is like her ex-fiance and Leo was perfect for the job, because he needed a little change too. He suffered a heart attack and discovered that life was more than just work.
Leo family was great, they were worried about him and forced to change, his brother managed the company and his family, so the only thing Leo needed to learn was to slow things and stop being such a workaholic. This time in Tennessee really helped him. The baby made him see things differently and even consider a family of his own in the future. This was a cute romance and my favorite kind.

Twins? The startling revelation that his affair with Jenna Baker had produced two little boys was almost impossible to grasp. Tycoon Nick Falco had never considered himself the settling-down type, yet now that fatherhood had been thrust upon him, he was determined to give his sons his name. But their mother wasn’t about to let him back into her life…at least not without those three little words Nick had never, ever said.
I love Halequin books and some of this series are extra special for me, so when I discovered this one for free on Amazon, I decided it was perfect to Why Buy the Cow? Reading Challenge 2012. There’s also another plus, Harlequin makes great books with babies and sometimes we just want to read a HEA.
This one is no exception, and there’s even two babies. Nick Falco has only one rule for his love live, no sex with employees and that’s what happened in this book. Plus he has some mutant chromosomes because the twins are so his fault and a copy of his dimples.
I loved how Nick struggled first to accept the truth but also started to see his life with kids and started to enjoy this change. It was very fun to read how he took care of the babies and also decided to change his life. For a womanizer this was a serious change but he was so sweet with the babies and change diapers from two is very difficult at first. Fun read and a bit sweet too.
