Magnolia's business degree didn't quite cover all that her new boss Vance wanted her to do.. because the drool-worthy charismatic Playboy Billionaire businessman/Artist had a long list of things he expected from his new PA.. and her first job of the day was to get rid of his random nightly hookups. And, over the course of a couple of years, Magnolia did her job well, Vance and her became good friends, she resisted Vance's very 'abundant' charms and continued to date her loser/user boyfriend. Vance drank to drown the bloody memories created by his parent's brutal murders when he was only eight, and then his Aunt and Uncle's equally brutal murders shortly after. Vance's drinking eventually became an addiction and when one of his hookups nearly died of an overdose suddenly things weren't ok anymore.
Vance went to rehab and came back a changed man.. exercise had replaced the drink - however what was still there was his attraction to the off-limits Magnolia.. but then she became single again and Vance watched and waited for his chance. But before he could make his move Fate came a knocking at his door with a three month old daughter Vance never knew he had (no spoilers as it was in the summary) and seduction was lost to diapers, bottles, whispers and his tiny daughter's well-being. They'd become best friends and Magnolia quickly stepped in so together they learned how to be parents - however Vance still desperately wanted Magnolia and eventually he took his chance and their easy chemistry ignited. But a few words from the wrong people had Magnolia doubting, disillusioned and distraught because, after confronting Vance about his/her feelings, there was only one option left.
A very enjoyable well-paced storyline with a slow to develop romance. They were both well developed characters - Magnolia was in denial about her true feelings for Vance and he was far too cautious when it came to choosing the right time for seduction. It was sweet and funny to hear how Vance and Magnolia coped with baby Rosie's needs. There were tender scenes, passion, humor, sex, character development as Vance goes from manwhore to devoted dad, there's a manipulative ex and a little bit of angst in a love story that was primarily told from Magnolia's POV. Good narration by both narrators.. but I wish more chapters were done by Beckett Greylock who has a sexy swoon-worthy voice.
Worth a credit? I think this has been my favorite love story from the Winters family so far.. and YES creditworthy.

This is a great love story with enough steamy sex and warm compassion that it will melt your heart. A must read!
