She’s falling for the one man who could destroy everything…

Alex McAllister always dreamed of a life filled with the laughter and love of a family, but being abandoned at a young age left her wary of letting anyone in. Now that she’s settled in Still Harbor, Alex struggles between keeping her distance and the magnetic pull of the handsome stranger who claims he’s the biological father of her adopted daughter.

Hayden Brooks never wanted to be a father. Long hours spent building his family’s real estate empire suits him just fine. But when he discovers an ex put the baby he unknowingly fathered up for adoption, his world crumbles. He tracks the child to Still Harbor with the intention of bringing her home—and comes face to face with his daughter’s stunning adoptive mother.

The paternity test is in. And Hayden’s about to make the most shocking decision of his life, just in time for Christmas…




Alex McAllister is settling in her new life in Still Harbor and getting ready to enjoy the holiday season with her chosen family. She was not expecting, however, to have her world turned upside down when her daughter’s biological father comes calling threatening all she ever dreamed of.

Even though Hayden Brooks never wanted to be a father, now that there’s a possibility that a child of his exists, he’s determined to exercise his parental rights–consequences be dammed. But coming face to face with the woman who has raised his child brings forth unexpected emotions he’s not quite ready to deal with. With Christmas approaching and Alex’s attempts to draw out the truth Hayden finds himself spending time with Alex and Cassy and yearning for things he once thought forgotten–a family of his own.

What I enjoyed the most about this story was the way the author brought Hayden and Alex together. Especially the fact that she took the time to establish, grow and showcase the connection between Hayden and Alex. True, they shared a common bond in Cassy, but I appreciated the effort Victoria James put into allowing the reader to see that their connection ran deeper than the chemitry they shared and their mutual love for Cassy.

Hayden and Alex were great characters to get to know, but I think it was Hayden’s growth that I enjoyed the most. It was a treat to see this workaholic allowing himself the chance for something more. I enjoyed seeing him unravel and yearning for something he had given up hope of ever having.

Falling for Her Enemy is the second book in the Still Harbor series and although it can be read as a stand alone, I would recommend picking up the first book in the series if only to truly experience the bond between Alex, her sisters and their daughters.

All in all, a heartwarming romantic emotional read.

*I received a copy of this title in exchange of my honest opinion.
