Release Date: July 12

From USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Claudia Burgoa comes this billionaire workplace accidental pregnancy romance that’ll leave readers laughing and swooning!

What happens when you break the cardinal rule?

I’m good at following rules.

Like, don’t sleep with your hot employees. That’s a good rule.

At least I was until that night. I blame the champagne and the tuxedo he wore.

There are several reasons why I shouldn’t be attracted to Elliot McPhee.

1.     He’s emotionally unavailable.

2.     He’s in his mid-forties—too old for me.

3.     He’s my employee.

4.     He’s jaded after a disastrous divorce.

5.     He’s leaving soon.

But he has gray eyes, and a deep velvety voice…did I mention he looks like Joshua Jackson?

I can’t resist.

It’s just a one-night stand before he leaves.

Except, things get complicated.

We’re talking two bright pink lines complicated.

Did I mention he has no desire to commit?

So, we agree not to try.

Except, we can’t keep our hands off each other.

Then I find out he’s not who I thought.

He’s so wrong for me. So why do I still want to create a family with him?

Along Came You is a forbidden age gap romance involving a secret billionaire and an accidental baby. Get ready to laugh, swoon, and be seduced by sexy billionaires willing to please their women!

I feel this review needs a giant disclaimer….
Ms Burgoa is an author whose work I normally love and from the blurb, I was super excited about this book. Unfortunately, for Along Came You, one of the things I normally enjoy about Ms Burgoa’s work caused me to actually be frustrated and confused while reading.

If you follow Ms Burgoa, you know that her work tends to center around large families, so any given work has a large secondary cast. These families sometimes also drift into other series as friends of main/secondary cast. For both Fern and Elliott, I consistently felt like I was missing something related to their backstories. There were hints of things, names mentioned that seemed to lurk just a little - all to create a sense of being poked at by a feeling of “you should know this, why don’t you?”

As the third book in the Paradise Bay series (I confess I have not read the first two) the slow burn of Fern and Elliot’s story seemed to be more about positioning of other characters to either update previous stories or preparation for future launches. Fern and Elliot’s actual real story didn’t take off until the 50% mark of the book. I loved the second half of the book and wish that the story there had take up a little bit more real estate within the larger story.

I feel like this review has been a bit of a Debbie downer and that’s not my intention at all - I think this is a book that really needs to be read in order of it’s series. (And maybe even in order of Ms Burgoa’s back list) For the reader that has 100% of the context, this would be an amazing/emotional read. For me- a bit more of a sporadic reader, missing that context made it more difficult to engage because I kept wondering about the things I was missing.
