4.0 out of 5 stars sweet contemporary romance 4 Jun 2012
By Lexxie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This review is based on an ARC from netgalley.

This completely grabbed me from the start! Max and Kate meeting in the lobby of the hospital, and just the few moments they spend there, where Kate realizes Max has stopped drinking, and Max realizes that he has a daughter - WOW!

Max Montgomery is a real-estate mogul, from a rich family; Kate Hunter left him when he was in a drunken stupor, having become an alcoholic after learning a huge family secret. What he didn't know is that Kate was pregnant when she left him, and she was afraid of him because he was breaking furniture and she thought about how it would be to introduce a baby to that kind of life. What Kate didn't know is that Max became sober shortly after she left. When they meet again, it's in the lobby of the hospital, after Kate's dad has a stroke she comes back to help her mother out, and spend some time with both of her parents.

Max is really angry at first when he understands that Kate has kept his daughter from him. At the same time, he can understand her, he knows that he was behaving in ways incompatible with raising a baby at the time she left him.

It is clear from the start that Max is still in love with Kate, although he is upset about only getting to know Trisha when she's seven years old as well. The first meeting between father and daughter is pretty awkward, but it seems so real, exactly how I would imagine a grown man would interact with a little girl who's his daughter, but not knowing her yet, and not having a lot of experience around children.

Because the one thing she hadn't seen the day before when she'd visited him in her beautiful former house was the crystal vase her parents had scrimped and saved to buy as a wedding gift for her and Max (...) To this day he probably didn't even know he'd thrown it against the fireplace and shattered it into a million pieces, along with her heart - and their marriage. This confuses me a little, the crystal vase her parents gave them for their marriage is what actually pushed her to leave? That's a little shallow, and this story has been far from shallow so far!

I really like to see how both Max and Kate are trying to deal with the new versions of each other, but things become a tad melodramatic at times, and that is too bad. They also behave a little bit like insecure teenagers every now and then, and that seems a little strange, since they are both grown ups, secure in their lives and their jobs.

All in all a story I really liked, and I will for sure check out other books by Susan Meier, a sweet, easy romance, with flowing prose is not something I find everyday! I recommend this book to all romance lovers who like to have some humor and drama sprinkled on their story as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Autumn Review for The Tycoon's Secret Daughter 5 Sep 2012
By The Autumn Review - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I got this book a while back and figured it was high time it moved up on my review schedule. It was a fast, easy, yet emotional read and I found myself rooting for this family to have a second chance.

Max has been living sober for the last several years. His alcoholism ruined his marriage and he's never gotten over his love for his ex-wife. As fates would have it, he runs into his ex, Kate, and those old sparks are still there. For him at least. Then, he's hit with a huge shock. Not only did Kate leave him, but she was pregnant when she left. She's never told him about the pregnancy, because she didn't know he was sober. So, the couple tries to figure out the best way to ease Max into their lives.

Max and Trisha (his daughter) develop an easy relationship. Max truly loves being her father. The more time he spends with his daughter, the more he sees Kate as well. Their old feelings for each other never went away and they soon find they are trying to figure out what to do about it. Then, old skeletons come out complicating matters further.

With a cast of truly likable characters, I found myself rooting for them to have a second chance. I do believe that they had a deep love for each other. I loved seeing their love being rediscovered. After all, they both had made life changes, but it was sweet to see that they loved each other even more.

This book was a true romance story that was filled with hope, love, and second chances. If you are a romance fan and love a happy ending, this is a great easy read that will capture your heartstrings.

Tycoons Secret Daughter by Susan Meier
4 STARS I like how the characters are trying to deal with thier past troubles. They are trying to do whats best for thier daughter, not what they want. Thier are no warnings about the content of this book. I look forward to reading about Max's brother story that is coming soon but not as fast as I want. Max Montgomery had it all but then through his drinking he lost a lot of the good things in his life that he had. Max has been sober for seven years. He has tried to make up for all his past offenses when he was a drunk, except his ex-wife. Max was coming out of the elevator at the hospital and ran into his ex-wife he has not seen for 8 years. Kate Hunter was planning on telling her husband but the night she was going to he came home in a drunken rage. He broke a lot of things, even the front room window. Kate knew she had to protect her baby from Max and his family, so she ran that night. Max went up to Kate and was telling her that he was sorry he ruined thier marriage when another elevator opened up. Trisha came out and called her mom. One look and Max knew she was his daughter. Kate knew she could not afford to fight Max's family,money and all the judges that they helped get into office. Now seeing Max was sober and wanting to be a father Kate agreed he could see her but not alone for now. Kate was not ready to believe him that he was not a drunk any more and so angry. Max wanted to blame her for keeping his daughter a secret for so long but he knew it was him that made those troubles for his marriage. Kate planned to stay with her parents for 3 months and help while her dad was recovering from a stroke. Max had lots of money but knew he could not buy his daughter with expensive presents. I enjoyed reading this book. Seeing where Kate and Max dealing with the past and learning about who they were now. I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley. 06/05/2012 Pub Harlequin imprint Harlequin Romance

The Tycoon's Secret Daughter (Harlequin Romance)
The Tycoon's Secret Daughter (Harlequin Romance)

THE TYCOON'S SECRET DAUGHTER by author Susan Meier is a Harlequin Romance release for June 2012.

Max Montgomery comes face to face with his ex-wife Kate unexpectedly in the hospital. And gets a surprise- his daughter! He had no idea Kate was pregnant when she walked out on him. Now to meet an eight year old daughter, he had no idea he had.

Kate Hunter had walked out on her alcoholic husband when she found out she was pregnant. She didn't want to bring a child into the environment which she had with her husband, Max. Now meeting him after eight years, dare she trust him?
Max wanted to see his daughter and be a father, could Kate trust him with her daughter? Kate realizes she has lingering feelings for her ex husband. Max is also attracted to Kate as he never had been attracted to any other woman in her absence. Can he have his family back now? He knew it had been his own fault that he lost Kate. But can he make Kate come back to him now?

THE TYCOON'S SECRET DAUGHTER is an emotional story about alcoholism and its effect on families. It dealt with the issue in a very realistic way. I liked that Max was not that arrogant and accepted the blame. And I wonder how many people would give their husband second chances as Kate did? Can a relationship really survive this addiction?

Susan Meier takes us to unexpected depths of human relationships and trust. She brings this powerful story of an alcoholic and aggressive husband and his personal relationship with his successive recovery from the addiction with realistic imaginary. And the relationship depicted between Max with their daughter, Trisha is endearing. It's a wonderfully poignant tale of old passions, second chances and everlasting love!

Kate and Max have a past the question pops up...will they have a future? The road they have to travel to answer that question is a long one, a road with bumps along the way. It is another Susan Meier story that grabbed my heart and my imagination. She is a terrific storyteller.
