The setting: California; Philadelphia, PA
The Hero(s): Connor Hunt – his ex girlfriend Harper had a severe drug problem but when they found out she was pregnant Connor was able to keep her clean through the pregnancy. She reverted soon after the birth and Connor was basically a single father to a newborn. She returned and stole the baby when he was six months old and Connor has been searching for Ryan ever since.
The heroine: Leah Terry – was asked by her dying cousin Harper to adopt her baby, Ryan and keep him away from Harper’s family. Harper’s family was the Gallo crime family, the biggest mafia family in Philadelphia. Leah adopts the quiet toddler who can but doesn’t talk, though she has no clue what Ryan has been through over the last two years.
The Love Story: When Connor finally finds his son, Leah has already bonded with him and become his mother. Connor gets to know Leah and tells her he doesn’t want to take Ryan away from her. Their attraction builds from there.
A few holes in the story but otherwise very good. The Gallo family including Harper’s brothers and abusive mob boss father want Ryan. If I were Connor and Leah I would move back to California after the first threat. I mean even if the Gallo’s followed them to California, if they kidnapped Ryan they would be crossing state lines so the FBI would be involved on getting him returned.
However, Connor moves to Philadelphia and is determined to stand up to the Mob. Frankly, if the mob wanted my kid and the most likely had a bunch of cops in their pocket, I would want to be as far away as possible from their home turf.
