What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas…

The moment Beckett O’Neill retires from professional sports, he swears off schedules and commitments. His new gig has him hopping from one exotic location to the next. No strings, no responsibilities. Nothing that will tie him down.

At least not until a chance encounter with the woman who stole his heart for a night in Vegas delivers the shock of a lifetime. He’s got a five-year-old daughter, one who believes wholeheartedly she’s a fairy. What’s he supposed to do with that? It’s not like he even knows what being a good father looks like.

Life didn’t go exactly as Coco Cavanaugh planned. Her big dreams of launching a business are derailed when a one-night stand with a charming stranger results in a surprise pregnancy. As a single mom, she manages to find a happy balance raising her adorable and hilarious little girl, while mastering the art of chocolate-making. It’s a good, safe life. One she’s proud of.

When fate brings them together again, Coco remembers exactly why she fell into bed with the irresistible Beckett. But she’s not that free-spirited girl anymore. And his jet-setting lifestyle isn’t conducive to raising a child.

Is this a second chance at another one-night stand or is this the beginning of something real?

They’re everything he never wanted.
He’s everything she didn’t think they needed.

Reading this book gave me all the feels! The story is full of unconditional love, overcoming fears and the sense of family every person should have in his life! This was my first book from the author and I really enjoyed it! I feel like I need more of “Calamity Falls” in my life!!

Beckett and Coco first met in Vegas 6 years ago. The chemistry between them was undeniable and they spent a night together. Unbeknown to them that night they created something special! The next morning Coco left, and they’ve never seen each other again until today. Coco has her life together being a business owner and a full-time single mom to an adorable little girl, Posie. They only thing she has to remember Beckett is her little girl, until he shows up at Calamity Falls for a business arrangement. Feeling guilty about keeping Posie a secret she tells him that he has a daughter.

The most interesting thing for me was seeing Beckett getting to be the best dad. Although demons of his past keep him scared, from the time he sees Posie he can’t help but fall in love with her. He never thought he’ll have a daughter, especially one who thinks she’s a fairy! His feelings and fears are apparent, as well as the still palpable attraction between him and Coco. I really loved these three and I was so happy to see them finally become a family!!!!
