Falling for Her Enemy by Victoria James

Book Description

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...

AVAILABLE: November 9, 2015

Hayden Brooks has just learned that he could be a father.  A woman he had a one-night-stand with 7 years ago claims that he is the father of the child she put up for adoption.  This woman is also threatening to expose Hayden as a deadbeat dad if she doesn't give her a million dollars. (Way to keep it classy, lady!!)  After learning he could be a father, Hayden begins the search for his child, which brings him to Still Harbor and Alex McAllister and her daughter, Cassy.

Alex has a plan for her life: raise her daughter in a loving home and buying the local bakery (in 5 years).  Alex is determined to provide a stable life for herself and her adopted daughter, Cassy.  And then walks Hayden Brooks threatening to take it all away from her.  And she definitely shouldn't be attracted to the man with the potential to tear her life apart.  She wants to hate him, but the more time Hayden spends with Alex and Cassy, it gets harder and harder for her to think of him as the asshole she wishes he was.

Falling for Her Enemy is a really sweet,light, heartfelt story about learning to trust and let down walls.  The romance between Alex and Hayden progressed really nicely for me (especially since there potentially so much at stake between these two).  I haven't read the first book in the series, but I definitely will go back and read it.
