Review: Last Chance Proposal

Last Chance Proposal
by Barbara DeLeo

A wife he needs. The woman he desires.
Cy Hathaway needs a wife, fast, to win custody of his son, Jonty. He returns home to discover the childhood sweetheart he once left behind has become a vibrant, beautiful woman. Even though wanting to sweep her off her feet wasn’t part of the plan…
For Ellie, Cy’s sudden reappearance awakens a flood of memories—and resentments for the way he’d abandoned her all those years ago. But she has a life now, a career.  She can’t simply drop everything and get hitched, even if the sight of him still makes her heart race.
But after Ellie meets his little boy, she can’t refuse. Certain she has a grip on her old feelings for Cy, she agrees to marry her first love until he gains custody. But when did helping out a friend become something with the capacity to hijack her heart?
My Thoughts:
Unexpected, emotional, sweet and fun.  I wasn't sure what to expect when I read then opening scene, but I was definitely intrigued.  Cy's proposal was unconventional even though he had a serious past with Ellie.  Once you are introduced to his son, Jonty, it's understandable why he is so desperate to do everything he can to keep his son.  Seeing how Ellie & Cy's relationship plays out with it's backwards start is fun; yet seeing how they grow closer through challenges with his son is at times heartbreaking.  I enjoyed the different setting of Last Change Proposal and learning about different local traditions.  Last Chance Proposal is an charming romantic read that will keep you entertained, great for a little weekend read.
