Review: Secrets on Lake Drive by Tina Martin

Monica and Sean clash at a parent-teacher conference when Monica accuses Sean of being too occupied with making money and chasing women to take a real interest in his son's life. But Sean is no pushover. He knows how to hold his own and deal with Monica, but after the incident at school, he's also come to realize that he can use Monica's devotion to his advantage. He propositions her to move into his home to babysit five-year old Roman for the three months of summer break, offering her a substantial amount of money, hoping that she'll accept. But is babysitting the only reason he's so anxious to get her into his mansion? Monica accepts his offer against her better judgment, knowing the rumors of Sean and his womanizing ways. She tells herself that she's doing this for Roman - that she can avoid her new, sexy, summer boss - his chiseled chest, pretty green eyes and charm that just won't quit. But after only a few weeks, Monica finds it a struggle to keep her eyes off of Sean. Can she handle staying focused on her babysitting gig for three months without being swept off of her feet by Milwaukee's finest? Or is Sean's game too much for the young, conservative teacher to handle? Having been heartbroken in the past, Monica is reluctant to play this dangerous game with a confirmed heartbreaker. But it's what she doesn't know about Sean that she should be concerned about. Sean knows her well - too well, and it's those secrets that have the potential to make her love him or hate him. Secrets On Lake Drive is an emotional story about a woman looking to correct wrongs in her life that could easily be solved by the secrets Sean quietly carries with him. The question is, will he ever care enough to tell her?

Tina paints an intriguing picture with her style of words.  The characters come to life and the plot is intoxicating.  I'm adding Tina to my list of favorite authors.  I know what I'll be getting some of my friends for Christmas!
