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?

Unexpected and heartwarming! (5 stars)
Just about every aspect of THE MILLIONAIRE DADDY PROJECT went against my tastes. Not a big fan of the boss-underling trope. Not into millionaire romances. And from the start Dane Bergman is aloof and clueless. But I'm one to trust my gut when I choose what I read and Roxanne Snopek has been an author I've taken a chance on time and time again with stories that I wouldn't normally reach for only to be wowed. TMDP is no exception.
Dane is one of the first heroes I've read that made me want to throw a book across the room because he was so frustratingly not-with-it. Giving him a child he didn't know existed made me terrified for the little girl. He's an excellent businessman but a daddy? Impossible. And he fails over and over and over and I spent so much of the book tense and frustrated and wishing I could throttle him. Yet, he kept trying and so I kept trying to like him and somewhere along the journey as he grew I started to soften up and see the potential in him just as Pam did. She's so good for him that I felt like he was getting way more out of their relationship than she could ever get.
This is a romance to be sure and it's sexy and oh-so-good but ultimately I felt like it was more of a story of becoming a family. Your mileage may vary on how you feel about that kind of story but I absolutely loved it. Pam and Dane have both had hard lives that make their becoming a family with his daughter such a sweet and rewarding read I can't recommend it enough to those craving a really hard-won happily ever after.
