A Second Chance at Love…
Raef Alvero has been groomed his entire life to take over as CEO of Alvero & Alvero. He’s also spent his entire life trying to please his father…Even if that meant giving up the one woman he ever truly loved. Now fate has intervened. Raef is faced with handling the buyout and closing down of a chain of hair salons…one in which Gemma works. Five years has passed since Raef decided to leave Gemma, but everything comes rushing back when he walks into the salon. All the pain, all the memories…all the love. And he knows he won’t let her go again. Not ever, no matter what else he has to give up.
Can be a dangerous thing.
Gemma Warren knew the salon franchise had been sold …but she never expected the new owner to show up at the shop –and she really never expected he would be the same 6 feet of seduction who left her heartbroken and pregnant 5 years ago. But what she’s feeling –aside from total shock – isn’t hatred. The feelings of love Raef left her with have just been buried deep in her heart ,and now that he’s back, keeping them secret from him will be as impossible as keeping their daughter a secret. With pictures of little Charlotte displayed all over the salon, Raef would know immediately he had a child. Then what…? Could he ever forgive Gemma for hiding her?
A second chance is all they need, some time to forgive, but there’s a sinister plan already set in motion—one that will threaten not only Raef and Gemma’s happiness, but the life of their little girl.

This is the first book that I have read by C. Kaye and I thought that it was a very sweet second chance romance book.
This is the story about Gemma and Raef. Gemma is a hairstylist and Raef is a higher up in his fathers company. What neither of them know is that they are both about to come into each others life after not seeing each other for 5 years.
Raef's father just bought out the salon chain that Gemma works at and it is Raef's job to go and talk with all of the salons and nothing can prepare Gemma for the love of her life that she lost 5 years ago to walk in. She also wasn't expecting for him to learn about the 4 year old little girl that she has. Which can only mean one thing, especially after he sees that photos of the girl, that he is a father.

Growing up in rural Louisiana, I dreamed of one day being a writer. Although it took many years to achieve that dream, life has been fulfilling along the way. Being a wife and a mother are the things I consider my biggest accomplishments. My family is number one in my eyes.
By day, I work in a public school finance. At night and on weekends, I become a writer. Outside of work and writing, I enjoy reading, photography and traveling. I am obsessed with all things Disney and Thirty Seconds to Mars. In addition to my husband and son, my three favorite men are Mickey Mouse, Jared Leto and Shannon Leto.
I can’t forget to mention my two babies, Beaux--our half Yorkie, half Labrador doggie--and Kat--who is actually a cat. They complete our little family and have helped with our empty-nest since our children have become adults. They are very spoiled and have a hard time understanding why they can’t be in my lap when I am writing.
