A sinful siren is exactly what stuffed shirt marriage therapist Dr. Caleb Paden thinks of Olivia Wells when he shows up on her doorstep to collect his son. Olivia has a few things to add to his theories. First of all, she's going to add some letter to his Forever marriage, specifically sex, tenderness, intimacy, needs, kissing, and sentimentality. Perfect. Now they can call it Forever Stinks.
I loved the idea of a marriage therapist who was so sure of his theories coming face-to-face with the woman who believed those theories destroyed her dreams of happily ever after. It was so much fun to watch Caleb try to convert her while she's trying to bring down his empire.
The discovery of a secret baby threatens Caleb's professional reputation. Falling for the woman who loves this baby would ruin him.
Marriage therapist Caleb Paden has just found out he has a son from a one-night stand, making a mockery of his core belief of stable relationships--"friendship above all physical encounters." On his way to take the child for a paternity test, a snowstorm leaves him stranded with single mom Olivia Wells, who blames his advice for breaking up her marriage. Caleb finds himself fighting the urge for the most basic of physical encounters. Olivia would like nothing more than to destroy the career he spent a lifetime building, but her maternal instincts draw her to help Caleb bond with his child. Soon, she finds herself falling for both of them. Nowhere in any of his advice does Caleb have an answer for how to make a relationship work if he loses his heart to love.
Also in Mr. Forever is a fun, quirky secondary romance involving Olivia's sister Penelope and Caleb's brother Ethan. Penelope is far from a sinful siren in the beginning of Mr. Forever. However, I created an epilogue entitled Penelope's Pleasures just so we could see her overcome the last of her insecurities and embrace her inner sinful siren.
Penelope is confident in her ability to create dazzling perfumes, but on the personal side she believes she has nothing to offer a man. Ethan is used to having his way with women. He's smitten with Penelope but has committed himself to working only as her business partner. Penelope finally works up the nerve to act on her attraction. Will true love follow, or will they ruin their partnership when they mix business with pleasure?
