He takes control...and gives all kinds of pleasure
In the space of about a second, successful restaurateur Dane Bergman has gone from millionaire playboy to daddy. Now he's the sole guardian of a very adorable and willful four-year-old child, and he's counting on his executive assistant, Pamela Atwater, to save his ass. Even if it means bringing her along on a month-long ocean-side retreat...
Pamela Atwater prides herself on being the perfect assistant. Whatever Dane wants or needs, she's there—pretending to ignore Dane's golden charm and drop-dead gorgeousness. On vacation, however, Pamela sees a side of Dane she never imagined. And it's a side that tempts her to cross the line between professional and personal. But is one month enough time to prove to Dane that his perfect assistant might just be his perfect match?

Dane had a horrendous childhood. He even changed his name in hopes of leaving it all behind. His gal Friday, Pam, is always there for him and the thought never enters his mind that she is anything but an asexual work-a-holic. Everything changes when Dane's ex-girlfriend dies and leaves him a four-year-old daughter he never knew about.
If things weren't already complicated, they go thermonuclear pretty quick. When Dane and his daughter, Dani, need some serious bonding time, Pam accompanies them to Dane's private island home. Being in such close quarters, Dane gets an unexpected jolt to his libido in the form of Pam's sexy curves.
Snopek creates the perfect atmosphere for sparks to ignite between Pam and Dane. What she also does is fully develop both her main characters. I LOVED that! I could really relate to Pam and Dane that way. When a scary incident occurs with Dani, I was right there panicking with Dane. When Pam's heart was breaking, I was tearing up and sniffling right along with her.
The best thing for me is what I like to call the "dessert" portion of the book, the happily ever after. If the dessert doesn't leave you satisfied, you won't eat it again. Snopek created a unique and tasty "dessert", one that will have me sampling the rest of her work to get the same thrilling experience.
Thanks so much to Roxanne Snopek and Entangled Indulgence for gifting me with a copy of The Millionaire Daddy Project in exchange for an honest review.
About the Author
Before she was a novelist, Roxanne was an aerobics instructor (fired for insufficient coordination), a cosmetics salesperson (lacked that go-for-the-throat sales attitude), a dog-trainer, a tax consultant with H&R Block (yeah, that was before Quicken and TurboTax), taught dog and cat breed names (she's a font of useless information) and even wrote content for an interactive romance/mystery video game (still can't master Windows 8.)
Now she explores all kinds of careers from the safety of her desk, through her characters. It's better for everyone that way.
