Her Secret, His Surprise by Paula Altenburg

Career driven girl meets cute bartender, they hit it off and spend the night. A month or so later, girl is over the toilet tossing her cookies and uh oh, you guessed it, she's pregnant. Tries to find bartender and if you guessed he's no longer there, then you are correct. 

SKIP ABOUT 2 YEARS [this is where the story really picks up] 

Logan is a CSIS agent [which from what I gathered is like the Canadian NCIS] and former bartender [he was undercover].  

Cass is an engineer, with a cute little baby girl and whole lot to deal with at work. She works for a military contracted company and a lot of people don't like the idea of a woman as a division director [sexist much]. Well, when her car breaks down and her sweet elderly matchmaking neighbor tries to set her up with her grandson, who is coming to live with her, all Cass can think is freeloader. 

If you guessed that the bartending, freeloading grandson is Logan, well good for you.  

When Logan and Cass see each other again, the sparks are still there, but can they make it work, when one has to lie for a living and the other is too focused on success? 

The story was fun and endearing, although it did lose some points for me because the ending felt too blah. I felt the ending needed something extra to really bring closure to the story. It's a fun light read perfect for relaxing after a long stressful day.
