UNDISCLOSED is a
contemporary romance, about old summer flings, a secret pregnancy, politics and
the return of old flames.
After a summer fling in college, Gwen disappears leaving Mac to wonder what happened to her. When she reappears a dozen years later to work on a presidential campaign with him, she has a secret that turns his life upside down but the magnetic pull between them is as strong as ever.
When I stroll into my job interview at a prestigious PR firm in D.C., the last thing I expect is my teenage fling, the sexy and enigmatic Mac, behind the desk. The firm's newest client is a woman running against the incumbent President of the United States, and I want this job so desperately that I can taste it—not to mention I have reasons for needing the income. Big secrets I've kept from Mac.
Gwen disappeared years ago then shows up in my office, looking beautiful as ever. And, even worse, it kills me that she's the perfect person for the job. I'm going crazy being in her proximity all the time, pretending we never spent that one hot summer together. Then I discover what Gwen's been hiding from me—a young son with my eyes. Suddenly, my whole world's upended. Between complications with my messed-up family, issues on the campaign trail, and the chemistry reigniting with Gwen, I'm forced to decide what really matters...and the kind of man and father I want to be.
When Gwen goes to an interview, she's met with the sight of someone she thought was out of their past. Gwen interview for a job with a company that the family of her college fling owns. A college fling that resulted in a pregnancy that the fling is unaware of until he meets eyes that look just like his own.
I'm not particularly a fan of slow-burn romance, because I can only take so much angst before I lose interest. So imagine my surprise when that did not happen with Undisclosed. Gaines built the connection and chemistry between Mac and Gwen in such a way that it held my interest. I liked that this story didn't follow the common "billionaire baby" storyline. Billionaire swoops in and saves the day and all is right with the world.
I had a few chuckles and a few "aww" moments as well i.e. Mac hearing himself referred to as dad for the first time. The story moved well and had a good supporting cast of characters that helped propel it forward with a mix of romance, humor, and angst. I knew that this was book one in a new series, so I was prepared for the cliffhanger and to be left with unanswered questions. I am looking forward to book two to find out how this story continues.
