IT’S NOT EVERY DAY YOU LEARN YOU HAVE A NINE-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER Boston Kincaid’s life is forever changed when he reads the note from Cassidy Trenton, who’s looking for her daddy. Vividly remembering the girl’s mother, Boston is compelled to learn the truth about Cassidy’s paternity. Single working mother Ellie Trenton is completely bowled over to find her old college flame, whom she hasn’t seen in ten years, loitering on her front porch when she comes home from work one day. At the sight of each other, Boston and Ellie’s decade apart melts away, and that old chemistry between them flares back to life. But trust doesn’t come easily, and old wounds never healed properly. Can Boston and Ellie learn to forgive and forget so they can experience the love they never shared, or will child custody battles keep them apart forever?


It's my belief that an author does a wonderful job conveying the emotions of the characters in a book when the reader feels emotions right alongside the characters. Linda Kage does just that in Delinquent Daddy. When Boston Kincaid reads a letter from his daughter that he never knew, he immediately rushes to confront Ellie, the mother, who told him years ago that she'd miscarried.

I have mixed emotions about this book. While the writing and style were great, the characters sometimes drove me crazy with some of their actions, past and present. Both Ellie and Boston had plenty of reasons to mistrust each other, but have to come together and come to terms with doing what's best for almost ten-year old Cassie.

I found this to be a well written book. The plot has plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader going, plenty of conflict, and of course, the romance. Readers will enjoy this story about second chances and forgiveness.
