The Switched Baby Scandal (Scandals of San Sebastian #1) by Theresa Meyers

The Book
Release Date: 10 June 2013

His child. Her daughter. One monumental mix-up.

Single mom Taylor Lawrence just discovered that the hospital sent her home with the wrong infant five years ago. Now the headstrong and handsome biological father wants his child back. But Emily has always been her daughter, and Taylor won’t give her up without a fight.

Widower Reece Wallace believed his life was over when a drunk driver killed his wife and daughter. So when he learns of the baby switch, he sees this child as his ultimate salvation. But he never anticipated the fiery woman on the other side of this custody battle—or how she’d stir feelings in him long dormant.

As the media storm surrounding the hospital’s mistake intensifies, Taylor and Reece find there’s more to sort out than custody of Emily—they must work together to protect her while grappling with their growing attraction. Can they pick up the pieces of two broken families and meld them into something new?

My Opinion  5 STARS
** Copy provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review**4

This book had me in tears, had me laughing and wanting to strangle the two main characters.

You can't help but feel the pain for Widower Reece as he struggles to get over the death of both his wife and child a year ago, only to find out the child that he had raised was not his biological child.

Taylor, the woman who has only just discovered the truth, that she has raised someone else's child and not her own, is in turmoil, wondering if she will get to keep the child that she has raised as her own.  She finds however that Widower Reece wants joint custody.

The tension between them is not the greatest, but you do really feel their emotions and their pain in regards to lost family and their daughter Emily.

Apart from the lack of decent tension between them I also feel that this book would have benefited in having an epilogue to really close up the story.

On the whole though this is a decent read.
