Kade and Mel are drowning in their responsibilities and taking care of their 11 month old baby boy Finn.
Taking drastic measures seems necessary to get even a little time alone, away from the Pack and Finn. A night away seems to be exactly what the doctor ordered.
I have to say firstly I probably aren't a good match for baby books ( I'm a childcare professional by profession ) they bring out my Supernanny tendencies. Second, I work with kids all day Monday through Friday so I really shouldn't be reading baby books. ( was I an accountant the rating would be higher! ;) )
That said I think this will be a good addition to the series, to people who have their own kids and/or are thinking about getting kids this will be a nice reminder to put your relationship on equal ground with your parenting.
As part of the series I loved getting to know Maddox, The Babysitter/The Omega, better. I loved getting underneath that hard surface to all the cute emotions and his battle to take care of Finn. The romance between Mel and Kade was really depressing the first half of the novella, you could see it was all in there but they kept putting their relationship last in their lives, work, Pack, War and Finn came first and they were both sad for it. But when they did get on their little vacation it got hot and heavy quick - and it's true that nothing returns the intimacy into a relationship like a loving romp or six in the bedroom!
What I think was best about this novella was the hint of talk about how to make a life, a kid and romance to work for your family. What I disliked the most was how sad Mel and Kade were in the beginning - which was fixed in the end of course.
