COVER REVEAL - Constant by Rachel Higginson

Release Date: 16 November 2017

The Book
Fifteen years ago I met Sayer Wesley. I fell in love with him. I promised I would never leave him. I swore nothing could break us apart. 

Five years ago I broke my promise. I ran away. I took the one secret that could destroy us both and disappeared. 

Five days ago I thought I saw him. 

I knew it was impossible. Sayer was locked away, serving a deserved sentence in federal prison. He couldn’t find me. 

He wouldn’t find me. I was too good at hiding. Too good at surviving. 

Because if Sayer ever found me, there would be hell to pay for a plethora of sins. The worst of which, he didn’t even know about. 

Five hours ago, I told myself I was crazy. 

Five minutes ago, I saw him again. 

Five seconds ago, I was too late.

REVIEW - Tech Guy: A Single Dad Second Chance Romance by Anna Collins

The Book
Release Date: 12 September 2017
Goodreads Link

Of all the men in the world, he has to be the one to walk into the bar when I decide to have a drink. 

Clay Maxwell. Bachelor. Tech billionaire. My new boss. 

Oh, and school ex-boyfriend. 

He wants me to help look after the troubled little girl left in his care because I'm a child psychologist. 

But I should have said no. Because now, I'm the one who's going insane, torn between pain and pleasure, past and future, each day with Clay reminding me of what was and what might have been. 

The problem with the mind is that the more you try to forget, the more you remember. 

And I remember everything all too well. 

*Tech Guy is a steamy, yet sweet STANDALONE contemporary romance of around 420 pages with a hot alpha billionaire single dad and his virgin lady. I don't enjoy cliffhangers or cheating, so you find any of them in here. I can also guarantee you a sweet happily-ever-after ♥

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is a second chance at love romance with 13 years in between the couple having seen each other.

Clay is a successful man having built up his own company with a friend and now is very rich and has always loved his high school girlfriend, the girl he left behind to look after his sick mother.

Andrea has not had a boyfriend since Clay.  No one has held a candle to Clay, but after he left she moved on with her life and got the college degree she wanted.  She too is successful with child psychiatry.  She is also somehow a virgin at 28.

ITs a sweetbread as you see two people come back together and rekindle a lost romance that was only broken because of circumstance.  However, would things still have been so good had they not had the break in their relationship.

Worth a read.

REVIEW - The Gamble by Alice Ward

The Book
Release Date: 18 September 2017
Goodreads Link

I need a wife. She needs money. It's a gamble, but one month will solve both our problems.

Unimpressed with my billionaire playboy ways, my father has given me an ultimatum — settle down and get married before the investors’ meeting of Gaston Pharmaceuticals, or I’m out the door. Yeah... he’s a dick but he holds my future in his hands, so I need to play nice, for a while.

One problem is that the meeting is only a month from now. The second problem is that I’ve never dated a girl I liked well enough to spend an entire night with, let alone a month. So my best friend and I process my dilemma the best way we know how — by getting mind-blowingly drunk.

And just like that, I wake up in Vegas with an epic hangover... and a wife.

A beautiful wife. A fun wife. A caring and creative wife.

Now, all I have to do is convince her to stay married to me. I make her a promise. In four short weeks, we’ll quietly annul this farce and go our separate ways. I’ll get my life back. She’ll get hers plus some cash.

There’s just one little complication. I think I'm falling for her. As luck would have it, she hates my guts.

This is a Full-Length STANDALONE billionaire romance novel with an HEA and NO CLIFFHANGER.

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

I really liked this book.  Its a what happens in Vegas book, but of course it never really stays there, especially as both characters live near the edges of Vegas.

Talen is a bit of a party boys at the weekend but works hard during the week, but seems to have daddy issues, especially as his dad seems to be a nasty character.

Dani right from the beginning is a caring soul and wants to help her mother as much as she can, and ends up using her nurturing nature to help Talen in more ways than one.  But this woman is no rollover.

Its a good book, has a strong start and finishes in a good place, however i would have loved a reconnection and possibly a baby on the way, but it was a good ending.

REVIEW - Winning Her Brother's Best Friend (Tea for Two Book 2) by Noelle Adams

The Book
Release Date: 20 September 2017
Goodreads Link

Ginny Hart loves men. And she loves dating. She just doesn't want a serious relationship. She's tried it before--with her brother's best friend, Ryan--and it's clear she's not cut out for it. So she'll keep having fun and focusing on the new tea shop she recently opened with her best friend. 

That's all she needs in her life. 

She definitely doesn't need Ryan, who is always hanging around and has turned into a real player. When he challenges her to prove which of them is more popular with the opposite sex, she takes him up on the bet. One month. Four Saturday nights. She'll show him she's not still holding on to old feelings. It doesn't matter if she can't seem to keep her hands off him. 

She's not about to let him win. 

Fifteen years ago, three girls were thrown together because their brothers were best friends. Now they're all grown up, and their brothers are grown up too. The Tea for Two series tells their stories.

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is a really sweet series with a slight christian angle and quite clean.

This second instalment has Ginny, Noah's little sister finding that actually she is ready for a relationship again, however, its a past love she wants.  Ryan, and her best friends older brother.

Ryan has always held a torch for Ginny and has never stopped loving her, but it is after a bet by their friends that has the two of them reconnecting in a way that they had not hoped would happen again.

Again all three sets of brothers and sisters are there for each other and bolsters each other up when needed and give a bit of a shove where required, proving that they are a close knit group.

I really loved this book and cannot wait to read Patrick and Carols story.

Goodreads Link

In a bleak and apocalyptic future, where the Zyrgin Warriors are getting ready to conquer Earth, Marcie is sent to infiltrate the alien stronghold in the Rocky Mountains, only to be betrayed by her own people. Instead of stealing the alien’s technology and accomplishing her mission of causing mayhem and destruction among them, she is captured by Larz, an arrogant alien, who wreaks havoc with her heart when he insists that she will be his woman. Still, he may no longer want her when he discovers her secrets…ones she doesn’t even know she has.

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This can be read as a stand alone book, you may not get the depth of the other characters and what they have suffered to quite the extent of reading the other books, but i read this one quite happily and the author helps fill in the blanks where required.

Marcie, Maeve or Margaret as she ends up calling hers self has been in previous books and is a nasty character, however it is not too long into the book before she totally changed changes.

The Alien race has been well thought out and we get a good idea of who they are and what they wish to accomplish on Earth.  We get a good detailed description of what they look like and their mannerisms.

It was a good book and i will certainly end up reading the first two books and looking more into this author.

REVIEW - The Seeing Place by Aziza Eden Walker

The Book
Release Date: 14 February 2016
Goodreads Link

Hot-shot producer Thuli Poni is holding auditions for her latest play in Cape Town. Andile Sebe is an up-and-coming star, just waiting for his big break. Thuli casts Andile and challenges him to link his painful past with the role he is portraying, leading him to open up to her. The two fall for each other and a passionate romance ensues.

But when auditions open for Sins of the Fathers, the most-watched TV show in South Africa, Thuli turns cold. Will she play a part in Andile’s rise to fame, or will she hinder it?

This is a story about how love can triumph against the odds if we stay humble, take risks and are willing to learn. The Seeing Place offers a very different kind of romance – between a powerful woman and a man who wants something only she can offer.

My Review 2 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This book is one i struggled with and i ended up having to skim read it as i do hate not to finish a book.

The book could have done with a pronunciation page along with a page that explained what some of the words meant.  As this is a South African author some of the words used meant absolutely nothing to me, such as the endearments etc so i was like "What"?

Thuli is a 28 year old with money who is in cape town for audition for her play.  When she meets Andile the attraction is instant from both sides and we get both points of view.  However the story jumps from each persons point of view without warning and often jumps in time without warning which can lead to initial confusion.

Not an author i will be reading again.

REVIEW - Fool Me Once (First Wives #1) by Catherine Bybee

The Book
Release Date: 19 September 2017
Goodreads Link

From Weekday Brides to First Wives, a dazzling series about four women and their alliance of newfound friendship, unexpected love, and second chances.
Cynical divorce attorney Lori Cumberland lives by one motto: Love is grand, but divorce is a hundred grand. With one failed marriage under her own personal belt, Lori had fallen hard and early—and it isn’t something she plans on repeating. She’s content focusing on the temporary marriages of her rich and famous clients. When she joins some of her recent divorcées on a celebratory cruise, her only vow is fun, sun, and new friends. But Lori finds herself tempted by a jury of one.
For Reed Barlow, falling into the world of private investigation was easy. He knows the law and knows how to avoid breaking it—all while doing his job. His rule to live by? No emotion, no involvement…until Lori. His charming smile and cocky attitude distracts Lori and lowers her guard, which is exactly what Reed desires.
But what appears as a one-time-only flirtation may be a plot orchestrated by Reed. As he’s taking his investigation to a dangerous level, it’s Lori who could end up in jeopardy. Reed has only one shot for Lori to grant him a second chance. But if he comes clean with her, he blows his cover. And that just might cost him the opportunity for an alliance of family…and of love.
My Review  5 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Montlake Romance for an honest review**

We have previously met Lori in a previous series, The Weekday Brides, and now we get the chance to meet the single lady.

Lori is a mother hen and feels responsible for all the ladies that cross her path, especially if they meet through Alliance, the company her friends work for.

Reed has a job to do and very quickly finds that Lori is loyal, friendly, takes responibiltiy for her friends and helps them to the best of her abilities.

Catherine gives me a little of everything that i want, hot romance, the best of friends, suspense, drama and a happy ever after along with the knowledge that other characters in the story are also going to get their happy ever after.

You just cannot help but root for all of the girls to get the happiness they need and deserve.

As I lay bare my soul to capture her heart, I I bringing the world to my brother or is he giving life to me?

My Review  4.5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This was a really good book and i learned quite a bit about Williams Syndrome as i ended up having to google it as one character had me interested .

You will certainly need your tissues with this one as two sad events occur, but the whole book is so gripping that i could hardly put the book down, only finishing it at 2am.

Both characters grow and learn about trust, hurt and letting go along with how having the right person beside them can make the bad times that little bit better.

I have not read a book like it and it makes a refreshing change in the rich man, poorer girl, older man, younger woman trope.

I would certainly recommend this book.

My Review 3 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Carol is a straight laced Girl who likes spreadsheets, however her life is turned into turmoil when she finds that her boyfriend has stolen The Album which was past to her by her friend.

There is a connection right from the beginning between Carol and a the private detective she hires (Darryn) and they both fight against the chemistry they feel.

Carol finds herself on a new path with the discovery of The Album and in a way also finds herself again, whilst Darryn lets go of his past.

There are quite a few enlightening moments for Carol and it is good that she has some really good friends to rely on.

It was a good book, but it does not have me rushing out to read the other books in the series.

REVIEW - Breathless (Players to Men) by Georgia Lyn Hunter

The Book
Release Date: 20 December 2016
Goodreads Link

When the fairy tale life you believed in falls apart, there is nothing else left…

Or so I thought, until Trouble, wrapped in one hunky body and a sinful smile promising untold pleasure of the carnal kind, lands on my doorstep. Despite what my body demands or the fact that I’m irresistibly drawn to him, I’d been burned too deeply to dare try again. Besides, Max Meade-Sinclair is my younger sister’s best friend—and totally off-limits.

Ila Logan’s coolly dismissive manner captures and challenges me from the moment our paths cross. What I want, I usually get. A little thing like age isn’t going to stop me. Neither are the men who disappear into her secluded room. However, she proves a difficult opponent who leaves me falling for her a little more at each encounter.
This tempestuous woman is mine, but to win her, I must dig deeper, and show her that beneath my brawling, player facade exists a man who would go to the ends of the earth to make her happy.

But surviving my own dark past may just destroy the fragile bond growing between us…

My Review  5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

I really enjoyed this book, yes the girl was older than the boy by 4 years, but in the grand scheme of things, so what.

Max has been through a lot and is still suffering with nothing seeming to help his headaches and fast to arrive anger.

Ila Logan has been through a relationship where the trust was completely broken and now retreats into her art for release, however Max stirs up more feeling in her than she is used too, especially as he is determined that Ila is the woman for him.

Both have good friends and i couldn't help but fall a little for Max, he may have been through a lot, but he went after what he wanted and he was;t afraid to fight for it and bee there for Ila when she needed him, making her whole again in the process.

Would certainly like to read more about the other characters mentioned in the book.

REVIEW - Oh, Henry (OHellNo #2) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

The Book
Release Date: 25 August 2017
Goodreads Link

From New York Times Bestseller, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, Comes OH, HENRY, Book Two of the Ohellno Series. (Stand Alone Story.)

My name is Henry Walton, and though I’ve been called many things throughout my life—tree trunk, moose, walrus—I am now six foot five, solid muscle, and the hottest defensive end in the NFL college draft. This is the moment I’ve been waiting for: fame, women, and glory. 

Just one problem: I’m suddenly in a bad slump. And it started the moment I got dumped by Elle, the nerdy goddess with thick glasses, a smokin’ hot body, and a genius IQ.
So what gives? We only dated for a few weeks, and it’s not like I’ve missed her. (Much.) Regardless, all the facts point to one conclusion. Elle is my lucky nerd-charm. 

Call me superstitious, but I have to get her back before I lose everything. Even if she’s the last girl I should want and she now hates my guts.

My Review  5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Yay, i really loved this book and i managed to read it in only one day it was that epic.

Henry is a man on a mission and is actually quite sweet and determined, despite his rather nasty father.  

Meanwhile Elle is a woman who is very intelligent, behind her years, but is trying to keep her college/friend life separate from her home life where things are not ok at all.

Both have trust issues, but Henry is able to overcome his faster than Elle, but Henry shows that he is willing to make the sacrifice for them, where it takes Elle that little bit longer.

We also find that Elle is reading a Mimi Jean book, but  you will just have to find out which one that is for yourself.

The book ends on a cliff hangar, so if that is not your type of thing then you will be disappointed, for me it just amps up the excitement for book three!

I’ll become a hero for her.

My Review  3 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This book took me a good few days to read when normally i can read a book in a day.  It didn't really grab me so i made the unusual decision for me to read another book in between.

Levi was ok, but should have manned up a little earlier and admitted his feeling and Harper was just too damn stubborn to see past her own nose.

Leviis at least persistent in his want to protect Harper even if it means pushing her away, but luckily for him she comes around to see him for what he is doing.

A decent book, but not one i would pick back up right away to re-read.

REVIEW - Hung (Mister Hotshot Book 1) by Anne Marsh

The Book
Release Date: 12 August 2017
Goodreads Link

He’s big. 
He’s sexy. 
And he’s hung. 

The first time I meet Pick Revere I tried to bash his head in with a baseball bat. The second time, I kissed the ever-loving daylights out of him on a dare. For a girl who’s on the lam and hiding from her cop ex, I’m failing miserably at laying low. Instead, I’m going up in delicious flames—because Pick’s the hottest, roughest, toughest bad boy firefighter I’ve ever laid eyes (or lips) on. He promises he has a big hose—and knows how to use it. I’d investigate, but I need my job as a cook at the fire camp. I’m supposed to serve my hotshot breakfast—not me. I’m supposed to keep my secrets. And I’m definitely supposed to stay single. 

But I’m not prepared for what happens after our kiss. Pick’s magnetic and dangerous. He’s short-term fun—not Mr. Commitment. But then he volunteers to be my muscle when my douche ex tracks me down. And I shouldn’t want more than that. 

But I do. 

I should run as fast as I could from Pick. 

But I won’t. 

Because he sets me on fire and you know what they say about firefighters—the hotter you get, the faster they come. How’s a gal to say no? 

This full-length standalone from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Anne Marsh is full of dirty swoonworthy hotshot firefighters that know how to use their hoses and who are about to learn how to use their hearts. This novel was originally published as a much shorter and tamer novella by eKensington and has been completely rewritten. The book is twice as big... and so are the hoses

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

In this book we have a woman named Sarah-Jo on the run from a nasty ex boyfriend and Pick Revere a hotshot firefighter who loves his job fighting wildfires.

It had a decent plot line, it had me turning page after page and engaged in the story.

I wasn't quite sure of Sarah Jo, but Pick seemed like a solid guy, the kind of guy you hope you end up with or at least be a best buddy of yours.  His firefighting buddies also seemed great fun and would be there for you if you needed them.

The ending was a bit Blah, but overall it was a good book.

REVIEW - Surrender (Balm in Gilead Book 2) by Noelle Adams

The Book
Release Date: 23 August 2017
Goodreads Link

They are business partners--and sometimes friends. They aren't supposed to fall in love. 

Ever since Vivian's lifestyle blog, Faith and Fabulousness, became a huge success and a profitable company, her life has been consumed by her work and each new creative initiative. Her job takes everything she has. She has no room for romance in her life. So certain feelings she's been having for her business partner, Jeff, will have to be ignored. She relies on Jeff to make her company function, and she can't let this growing attraction distract her from what's most important. 

When Jeff's ex-wife walked out on him two years ago, he resolved to never again give his heart to a woman who doesn't want it. Now he's having to remind himself of that resolution every day. Vivian might be irresitible to him--but she's also ambitious, complicated, and emotionally unavailable. She's never going to want him for real. And the intimacy that grows between them during their week-long company retreat on the Outer Banks isn't a promise of forever. 

He doesn't want to risk his heart again, so he really needs to stop kissing her. 

Surrender is the second book in the Balm in Gilead series, a spin-off from the Willow Park series about couples who fall in love in a physical and spiritual rest center on the North Carolina coast called Balm in Gilead.

My Review  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is a very sweet romance that is based on a Christian living and and the only 'action' is kissing, so for those of you that like erotic or more sexual scenes, this may not be the book for you.

Vivian is a complex mix of composed confident front and insecure at heart.  It is only Jeff, her friend and business partner that see's the real her and even then her doesn't get to see it all.

Jeff has been deeply hurt with a past relationship and finds it hard to trust that someone could actually want him for him.

Both have their issues, but with their faith and a little help, see what they are missing and we get a sweet ending.  

We also get to see a little of Daniel and Jessica from the Willow Park series that is also christian based.

My daughter’s babysitter just asked me to take her virginity - and it’s screwing with my head. 

The reasons I can’t f*ck Jessica: 
She’s my employee. 
She’s a virgin. 
She’s twenty one. 
I will only want more and more. 

Saving lives for a living is what I do. 
But running a medical practice and being a single dad means my life is chaotic. 
I needed a babysitter – and I got so much more than I bargained for. 
I want her so f***ing bad, but I’ll have to keep my d*ck in my pants. 

Maybe there’s a reason we met. 
I’m seeking funding to research a cure that will change lives. 
And the head of the philanthropic organization will only support married couples. 

Taking Jessica’s virginity is a bad idea – but faking a marriage isn’t. I just hope I’ve got the self-restraint to pull this off. 

**This is a full-length, standalone Fake Marriage & Virgin Romance. No cheating or cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed. Bonus content included!

My Review  3 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This novella was ok, but the insta lust between a 22 year old virgin and her boss, who we never actually get an age for just did not feel real.

Everything happened really fast, and the ending itself just was not believable.  Forgiveness that quick just does not happen after something like that.

It certainly did not fell like something special or something that i would be reading again.

REIVEW - One night with the Master by Jackie Ashenden

The Book
Release Date: 1 July 2013
Goodreads Link
Was Originally release with the title Black Knight, White Queen

"One night in Bangkok changes all the rules. "

Professional chess player Aleksandr Shastin never lets emotions rule his life, or his game. Not even the unexpected death of his mentor shakes his icy control at least that s what he thinks. Until he meets a woman in a Bangkok rooftop bar, a woman whose raw sexuality and emotional honesty find every invisible crack and pries them wide open.

Graphic artist Izzy Cornwall fled to Thailand to escape suffocating grief and guilt after her sister s suicide. As she locks gazes with Aleks, their instant attraction sets her on fire. And the way he looks at her makes her feel what she hasn t felt in months: that she actually exists.

In the heat of a Bangkok rainstorm, their chemistry steams up what was supposed to be one night of pain-numbing passion. Neither expected that a single encounter would change all the rules, making Aleks the novice, and Izzy the grandmaster. But if Izzy wants his heart, she ll have to show him that in order to win, sometimes you have to lose.

Warning: Contains one hot, controlling Russian chess master, a heroine who s more than capable of taking him on in a game of strip chess, and a checkmate to make Kasparov proud. "

My Review   4 STARS
This book is being rereleased by the author and has been retitled.

This book takes place in Bangkok, Thailand and focuses on Aleks and Izzy who meet on a hotel roof bar.

Both characters have faced loss and heartache and have something to overcome in order that they can continue with a relationship.  But it takes Izzy to realise she is running to help herself heal and for herself to realise how she can help Aleks grow and heal from his past.

Most of the book takes place within Aleks hotel room, however they do occasionally venture out, but mostly it is giving each other what they need, but did't know they needed.

A good read.

REVIEW - Hell's Bells (Welcome to Hell #6) by Eve Langlais

The Book
Release Date: 30 June 2016
Goodreads Link

A catastrophe has befallen Hell. The great and mighty Lucifer has fallen prey to the most wicked of spells. He’s become…nice. 

Just using that word makes Gaia want to gag. The demon she fell in love with is not some pushover, polite, candy-ass, nice guy. She wants her big, bad Lord of Sin back. 

Can she, along with the minions of Hell, find a way to break the curse? And will they do it in time to celebrate the wedding from Hell?

My Review  5 STARS
With Lucifer's upcoming nuptials to Gaia and his very much changed personality from sinner to saintly, it is a race against time to get Lucifer back to his old sinning ways.

This book focuses on Lucifer and Gaia themselves, but the other characters from the previous books do get some mentions.

Eve Langlais has a way of writing that pulls you along and has you giggling at the antics of the character and you really end up invested in their happiness and you really want a good happy ending.

A really good ending to this series.

REVIEW - Die For You (Catastrophe #1) by Michele Mills

The Book
Release Date: 3 May 2016
Goodreads Link

Love, in a hopeless place.

Two months after a virus took out civilization, Rachel Donnelly is the last living soul in California, as far as she can tell. Until she runs into a Marine sniper, battle-hardened but alive and healthy.

Adam Sanchez would love nothing more than a slamming session of I-can’t-believe-we’re-alive post-apocalyptic sex in the back of his Hummer. But Rachel’s fragility, inexperience—and much younger age—hold him back from exposing her to his raw, aggressive sexuality. If anything, Rachel needs protection. Especially from himself.

As they band together with other survivors to battle feral animals, violent ex-cons, and motorcycle clubs jockeying for power, Rachel grows stronger in mind, body, and spirit—strong enough to give the dangerously sexy Marine what they both crave.

The power of their passion rocks Adam’s world, bringing him to his knees—which, he discovers too late, is the worst possible place to be when danger springs from the shadows.

Warning: Contains a sexy Marine, a tattooed ex-con, a girl who blossoms into a sexually assured young woman, laughter despite the pain, m/f/m ménage, hope, love, and more bad language and violence than are strictly necessary.

In some ways this book reminds me of a book called The End of All Things by Lissa Bryan as it runs is a similar via and both are brilliantly written books that really draw you into the world left behind with only a handful of survivors.

The book starts off with Rachel, home alone after her family have died and wondering what she should do next.  Then the book goes to Adam and continues in this vein so that we get both points of view of lone smart researched based female and alpha male who has lots of practical ability after having been in the army.

A close environment and very few other survivors lead these two to fall for each other as both do a push me-pull you relationship to begin with but find they cannot resist the inevitable.

The author creates a believable post apocalypse world where in many cases everything has to be started again like the nineteen hundreds.

I really enjoyed this book and would certainly recommend it to others.

REVIEW - Complicating (Preston's Mill #3) by Noelle Adams

The Book
Release Date: 19 July 2017
Goodreads Link

Forget all those other accidental pregnancy romances you might have read. 

Daisy and Carter don't have a one-night stand...because it's thirty minutes in a back room at a wedding reception. And Carter isn't a bad boy baby-daddy...except for the motorcycle, tattoos, and attitude. Daisy doesn't have the typical issues with her pregnancy...if you don't count the morning sickness, food cravings, and occasional horniness. And Carter doesn't hang around all the time, wanting both her and the baby...until he falls in love. 

But they definitely don't become a happy family...right away. 

Daisy has always been a good girl. She's never done anything wild or spontaneous until she has a little too much to drink at a wedding and has a fling with a sexy stranger. She thought they were careful, but accidents happen. And now she's going to have the baby of a man she barely knows. 

Carter is her opposite in every way and completely the wrong man for her. They can still work out a reasonable arrangement regarding the baby. But the more time she spends with him, the less reasonable she feels. And he's acting all possessive and protective, so it gets harder and harder to convince herself that he's just the father of her baby. 

She wants him to be so much more.

This is a very well written book that gives you pretty much everything you need in a book like this.

Daisy is aa girl brought up right and has that good girl thing down well, Carter has the bad boy vibe, the motorcycle and the tattoos, but he is a sweetheart just like his all but adopted dog Teddy.

Sometimes though it takes only a moment to bring to people together that would not normally find their way to each other.  A moment to find the man that completes you and your life, the man you were meant to find happy ever after wife, even if there are a few bumps along the way.

Certainly well worth a read.
