Never Enough by Lauren Dane

Gillian Forrester spent most of her life running from who and what she came from...until Miles came along. The moment she held the tiny newborn her older sister didn't want, Gillian stopped running and began to build a life for herself and her adopted son. Now, thirteen years later, as Gillian's sister lies dying, she reveals the father identity and now makes Gillian promise to find him.
Adrian Brown is the epitome of the successful rock star. He's seen and done it all, with few regrets. It takes a lot to shock him--but the bombshell that he has a thirteen-year-old son rocks his world. And Adrian is even more surprised when the buttoned-up, elegant woman who's raising Miles snags his erotic and romantic attention.
The last thing Gillian expected was to find herself getting hot and heavy with a person like Adrian. But as much as she wants to open up and give herself fully to this amazing man, she's afraid the secrets of her past and Adrian's problems with trusting people may keep them apart for good. If love isn't enough, can they find the trust they need?
Let me tell you the sex in this book is hot!! Gillian and Adrian have a instant sexual attraction to each other and they do jump into bed right away. The love between them comes slowly, but I like how she builds up the relationship.
Now Adrian when he firsts finds out about his son is a real jerk and calls Gillian all sorts of names. He has some major trust issues with people and only lets a few people in his life. I like how his brother Brody tells him he really needs to check this out, what he could be missing if it was true.
Gillian only wants to do the right thing for Miles and if Adrian is his father felt he should know about him. When Adrian tells her off she says fine, his loss -- her gain and she did try.
After Adrian's talks with Brody he feels that he should really check this out and asks for a DNA test. Now Adrian's sister Erin can't wait for the test to come back and goes and meets with Gillian, once she sees the pictures she knows that Miles is her nephew. I loved it when she goes and gives Adrian a hard time.
Even though Adrian and Gillian sleep together right away, their love builds very slowly. Both of them have trust issues. Gillian because of her family and Adrian because of who is he. Gillian also has some issues because of Adrian's wealth and wants him to go slowly in buying things for Miles. She is trying to teach him to work and save for things he wants.
I like how Ms. Dane builds the love between Gillian and Adrian. I mean they don't fall in love overnight, it takes some time and I liked that. I did a little mad at Adrian when Gillian's big secret comes out and he was such jerk about it. I liked how Brody got in his face and Erin's face to set them right. I also liked how Adrian had to grovel a little to win Gillian back.
Over all a very good book. Lots of hot sex, but I enjoyed seeing all the members of the Brown/Copeland families.
