What a coincidence! I chose two stories about restaurant this week. Opposite to “Tipping the Waitress With Diamonds”, heroine is the chef and hero is the one who invest her restaurant. However he asked her to become his mistress, and they spent a night with each other. After that, heroine found herself pregnant. Will hero be responsible to the baby? Or the baby’s father is actually someone eles?

I considered this a nice romance with how it plays out between our main couple in the ups and downs. The heroine and hero meet a the heroine's open night restaurant. They both leave an impression of each other and circumstances lead them to the bedroom. The next morning, the hero promises to financially support the heroine if she becomes her lover. She takes this as an insult over and their conversation ends badly. However, flowers are a good start to mending burnt bridges and they enter a purely business arrangement to support the heroine's restaurant because her now former best friend ran off with the money they borrowed to start up the restaurant on the day of her wedding, leaving a groom at the altar. The two of them seem to have a friendly business relationship. I liked that the heroine struggles on trying to figure out who the hero really is because his past with OW & paparazzi portray him as a cold-blooded man then she decides to blot it all out and make her own opinion of him. The hero is overwhelmed by the heroine's character of being fair to the hero, especially in business relations. They both seem to stick to being business partners but a an unexpected pregnancy throws their once satisfactory spot in their relationship away. The hero takes the news well but says the wrong thing, which the heroine reacts badly. It's the whole, "marriage is the only option". After confirmation of the heroine's pregnancy, the heroine becomes overprotective. For example, he leaves work when he hears the heroine was up and walking around and orders her to stay in bed when the doctor gave her a clean bill of health. He can't hear the heroine's desire to do something because she's a do it all kind of girl. It's quite hypocritical because the hero doesn't want to stifle the heroine but won't let her go back to the restaurant or even make the food for their wedding. The heroine gets away for a few hours to take a break but the hero finds her a couple of hours demanding to know what she did to his baby! The heroine asks what he means and she learns that his relationship with the OW went wrong when she went to get an abortion without telling the hero of the baby. The hero shows how frighten he is of messing his second chance of having a child but the heroine reassures him that he may have been very controlling but he hasn't messed up at all. The two of them reveal that they are in love with each other and we have a happy ending. I liked it but I think it would have been better if there was an epilogue with the baby in it.
