Description

New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak returns to Silver Springs 

Sometimes starting over means finding everything you've been missing… 

After catching her fiancé cheating—with another man—usually straitlaced, workaholic scientist Ellie Fisher liberates her wild side just long enough to indulge in a passionate one-night stand with a tall, dark stranger she meets at a trendy Miami bar. Embarrassed by her recklessness, she ducks out the following morning without learning the guy's full name, something that shouldn't have been a problem…until a pregnancy test turns positive. 

Being a professional football player, Hudson King has always been cautious around women. But this one had been different—so disinterested in his celebrity, so convincingly into him. When Ellie tracks him down, claiming she's carrying his baby, he's stunned. And more than a little betrayed. 

But after growing up as an orphan, he'll do anything to stay involved in his child's life, so he urges Ellie to move to Silver Springs, where they can co-parent. Hudson has a lot of love to give, certainly enough for his child, and when their initial spark reignites, perhaps for Ellie, too…

  • Loving Silver Springs!!!

    By Cheryl SDS
    This is book 3 in the Silver Springs series and it features Ellie Fisher and Hudson King. These two had one perfect and beautiful night together, which turned into something neither of them expected. I was very disappointed in Hudson's reaction to Ellie's news. I understand his mistrust in women but I'd like to think he knew her better than that. Their arrangement was somewhat impersonal. On there one night together they seemed so in tune with each other. This is a great story with fabulous characters. I love how the story started out elsewhere but eventually becomes based in Silver Springs. The town is growing! I can't wait to come back!

    Once again Brenda Novak has created a book that keeps me up late at night reading because I am so engrossed in the story that I just can't put it down. When Ellie meets Hudson at a bar, she had no plans to go anywhere with him or even talk to him for that matter. Of course, as fate would have it, she ends up having a one night stand with him and becomes pregnant but she does not know who he is or even his last name. Hudson wished he had got her phone number before she left so he could call her when he came back to town but he didn't know her last name either. As with typical romance books, this one had a happy ending for Ellie, Hudson and their baby boy but the underlying story line of Hudson trying to find his birth parents was not as happy. It is definitely a page turner that you won't want to put down until it is finished.

    Superbly written story that keeps the reader totally engrossed with many unexpected happenings. The story is power packed with emotional issues, family issues, social issues, fear to love, a tangled web of secrets, deception, mystery, drama, suspense, sinister plot and forgiveness, personal growth, friendship and love. This book was a representation of real life and not the live happily ever after books without problems or compromises. The author gets the reader involved from the beginning. You experience what the characters are feeling. The main characters, Ellie Fisher, PhD and Hudson King, star quarterback for the Los Angeles Devils are creatively and well defined characters with undeniable chemistry. You will visit Miami, Florida plus Los Angeles and Silver Springs area of California. Hudson was one of Aiyana Turner's boys from the New Horizons Boys Ranch when he was younger. This book makes the reader aware of issues that might have never crossed their minds. This is book # 3 in the Silver Springs series. It can be read as a stand alone. A highly recommended read!!!!

    An amazing emotional story of finding love and trust again. A chance meeting between Ellie and Hudson at a bar leads to a one night stand. That one night stand will change the lives for both with an unplanned pregnancy. Ellie, is a workaholic as a scientist, who just caught her finance in bed with another guy. Hudson is pro football player, who grew up in foster homes and Silver Springs was his last place. Hudson wants to do whats right and provide for his baby and Ellie. Add in a little mystery of who are Hudson's parents, makes for the perfect read. This is the third book in the series, but all are stand alone books. This is my favorite one so far. Can't wait to read the next book in the series! I highly recommend!!

  • Trust, honesty, and genuineness

    One never knows what kind of scenario author Brenda Novak will bring readers, but it is always fresh, original, and exciting. This story is no exception. I really liked the romantic aspect, but especially enjoyed the creative scenarios within and beyond the relationship between Ellie and Hudson. Set between Miami, where Ellie and Hudson first meet, and Silver Springs and Los Angeles, California, their relationship becomes affected by their past. Hudson has been searching for his roots, as he was abandoned as a newborn. Fortunately, his life took a turn for the better after having attended school at the New Horizons Boys Ranch, a place that is a common thread with this series. Now, as an extremely popular professional football player, finding someone true enough to build a relationship with has been pretty much impossible. Ellie, a workaholic scientist researching diabetes, is trying to cope with a power punch of a breakup. Acting on impulse, she ends up spending the night with Hudson after meeting him at a bar. Without revealing more of this story, I found that trust, honesty, and genuineness are key, and the author brilliantly portrayed it.
  • So much more than a sports romance

    This is by far my favorite book in this series to date. When you read the description and see football player meets scientist your like, ok it's a sports type romance but when you start reading you realize it's a little of that but so much more. The characters are fascinating, Ellie and Hudson have to be the most opposite and unlikely people you would ever think would get together but as you get deeper and deeper into them you realize, they are they fulfill one another in a way that few find in a lifetime. This book, the way it's written, the characters, draws you in, captivates you to the point that you just can't put it down and never want it to end. The emotions that both of the characters experience are so well written that you really do want to have some tissues close by because you are right here with them, feeling their feelings and experiencing their experiences. I wish I could give this more than 5 stars because this truly is an amazing book!
