He takes control...and gives all kinds of pleasure
In the space of about a second, successful restaurateur Dane Bergman has gone from millionaire playboy to daddy. Now he's the sole guardian of a very adorable and willful four-year-old child, and he's counting on his executive assistant, Pamela Atwater, to save his ass. Even if it means bringing her along on a month-long ocean-side retreat...
Pamela Atwater prides herself on being the perfect assistant. Whatever Dane wants or needs, she's there—pretending to ignore Dane's golden charm and drop-dead gorgeousness. On vacation, however, Pamela sees a side of Dane she never imagined. And it's a side that tempts her to cross the line between professional and personal. But is one month enough time to prove to Dane that his perfect assistant might just be his perfect match?
Leo. The fifth sign of the zodiac. Leos are known to be confident, ambitious, and generous. However, they are also known to be melodramatic and stubborn. These qualities definitely describe Dane Bergman.
Dane is a self-made millionaire restaurateur. He came from nothing to become a major success. He’s confident, larger than life, and generous. He pretty much rolls with the punches, has no problem using money to get what he wants, but likes to have things in a nice little box. Children have never been in his plan or on his radar.
Pamela Atwater is Dane’s personal assistant and right hand. Without her, The Bergman Group wouldn’t run smoothly. Pamela is so invested and perhaps unknowingly puts aside her personal life for Dane and the company. She knows what women find attractive about Dane, but she’s smart enough to keep her distance and not become another one of Dane’s Dimbos. (Or so she thinks.) Interestingly enough, Pamela is the longest female relationship the Great Dane Bergman has had.
When Dane suddenly discovers he’s the father and only living relative of a four-year-old little girl he knew nothing about, he turns to the only person he can trust, Pamela. Of course, good old Pamela is there to help bachelor Dane transform into the father and man she knows he can be. Unfortunately for them, that sounds easier than it truly is.
I knew poor Dane was going to be put through the ringer by his four-year-old daughter, Danielle “Dani”. I just didn't know how bad I would feel for him, or how much I would laugh in the process. From fighting over food to being afraid to enter a bathroom where Dani has been in for twenty minutes, these two definitely butt heads. But there is no denying that Dane loves Dani and would do anything for her.
I really like the way Roxanne captured a four-year-old. Maybe at times, she had Dani saying things a four-year-old wouldn't, but overall she nailed it. I loved the way Roxanne through Pam forced Dane to look at his past and got him to compromise a little. Or maybe that was Dani. I was surprised by the little unexpected curveball in the story. But I loved it and it made the story that much more endearing.
Over the course of about two months, Dane goes from a bachelor to a father and finally truly discovers what love is all about. His relationship with Pam does grow and turns intimate. Of course, when Pam’s fears become reality, Dane finds himself out of his element once again. I’m a huge fan of grand gestures and Dane definitely used what is considered to be a fault in Leos to his advantage.
I found The Millionaire Daddy Project seemingly perfect. Roxanne portrayed the father/daughter give and take relationship to a tee. I loved the way we got to see Dane grow as a person and the bond between him and Dani form. This story reminds me of why I’m a Roxanne Snopek fan.
