Made me cry. You could almost feel her pain of loving a man she loved 3 years back and without realising she hadn't got over him at all.
The hero's parents had put wings on him to seek the woman he loved and rejected all those years ago and live happily ever after with one of their along the way.
He'll I recommend you read this book as I almost missed it.
Firstly, a main feature of this plot is Maggie. Maggie is a delightful 85 year old grandmother who is full of life and several opinions. Maggie is currently babysitting her great grandson Harry, who is also vital to the plot, while Harry's mother goes to Germany to reconcile with her husband. This may sound like back story, but this all unfolds slowly through the story.
Our hero, Yiannis Savas, is a suave, rich, jet-setting playboy who is thrilled to bits to have Maggie live in the flat on his property (she keeps his brothers away). He has the ideal life. This all changes the morning after he returns from Malaysia and Maggie calls him to tell him she's fallen. Yiannis loves this grandmother and rushes to her aid only find out she's broken her hip and must stay in hospital. Harry now has a new, somewhat experienced, babysitter. Maggie tries to calm Yiannis's fears by telling him her other granddaughter Cat will soon be here.
Cat MacLean is Yiannis's former lover. When she arrives, Cat is mortified to find out that Maggie is in hospital and will be for a while, Maggie has been babysitting Harry, Harry's mother is in Germany, and that Yiannis now has charge of her teething nephew. She has no real child experience, but she learns real fast.
Cat and Yiannis's relationship is fraught with difficulties. There are serious trust issues that still plague them, Yiannis hates Cat's new fiancé and is determined to break them up, Yiannis's mother arrives with the declaration that she has left his father, and then the joys of the teething child. Watching Yiannis's world fall apart is bittersweet. The sparkling, occasionally funny, dialogue keeps the story from becoming moribund. As they work through each of the problems, slowly they realise that it is time they both grow up and face reality. It helps when they fall back in love, too.
This story is better than the salacious blurb on the back that lead me to think it was going to be sex-a-thon when I picked it up. It is a great story.

This has charming moments. It is a nice fun fast read.
Yiannis Savas wakes up early to a phone call from his 85 year old tenant asking him for a favor and take her to hospital. Yiannis has been out of the country and just got in the night before. He has no idea that she had a great grandson staying with her till he is carring Maggie out to his car when she tells him better take her car because car seat wont fit in his.
Yiannis finds himself baby sitting Harry because his mom is in Germany telling Harry's dad that he is a father. Yiannis has baby sat many times with his big family so at least he knows how to take care of Harry.
Cat MacLean rushes into town after her grandmother calls to tell her she broke a hip and is having surgery the next day. Maggy raised Cat after her parents died. She moved to another part of the state after she broke up with Yiannis when he said he did not want to get married to her. Cat was not happy to deal with him over the baby but she needed his help with Harry.
Cat was now engaged to marry someone else and thought she was over Yiannis. Yiannis realizes that he still wants Cat.
It is funny to watch them watch each other and realize that they are not through with each other after all.
