In the middle of the night, he hears a knock on his door. He doesn't know who it could be but is frantically looking for something to wear and to see where his girl of the night is. She seems to have left but her underthings are strewn about the apartment. He is shocked to see ex-girlfriend Diane at the door with her young daughter. Still half out of it he invites them in while he is frantically figuring out dates in his head to see if the girl is his. Diane explains to him that she has sold everything to come to Manhatten at his suggestion to get a great job. Dylan made that suggestion years ago, but it took this long for her to make the plunge. They need somewhere to stay until they find an apartment and Dylan quickly agrees to them staying with him.
Dylan's plates are spinning, not used to people in his home and interrupting his routine but he quickly adapts. The little girl, Spring, quickly makes her way into his heart. But when there is an accident, Dylan becomes the sole caretaker of Spring. Dylan does his best, but Spring is scared that Dylan will go away too. Two people find their way towards one another, but Dylan's plates are spinning at a frantic rate and something has to fall.
Michael Baron pens such soul-searching novels that are full of warmth, humor and superb characters. When you first meet Dylan, you see a partying no-care-in-the-world player just looking out for himself. But Dylan grows and matures as a little girl shows him how to really live and to love. The antics that Dylan and Spring get up to will tug on your heartstrings and make you laugh out loud. A very touching and compelling story not to be missed!
