The (Secret) Baby by Leddy Harper
This story that will be available July 9th is the perfect beach companion. It’s a sweet and entertaining romance read with a little bit of conflict, misunderstanding and an unexpected pregnancy before the HEA ending.
It’s a story about Kelsey who has lost all faith in men, and Aaron who has almost given up on ever meeting the right woman. They meet at a bachelorette party where Kelsey mistakes Aaron for a stripper. After an amazing one-night-stand, they never expect to see each other again. But then Kelsey – who never planned on having children – discover that she’s pregnant.
When Aaron and Kelsey run into each other, Kelsey discovers it’s not that easy to tell an (almost) stranger that he’s about to become a father. And Aaron, who is quite smitten with Kelsey, manages to push her away in his attempts to act casual.
I must admit, at first I thought Aaron came off as way too desperate. But then again, I guess it’s not that easy to write a believable scenario where a neuropsychiatrist impersonates a stripper in order to get a few women’s phone numbers. But Aaron grew on me, as did the story.
I’ve never read anything by Leddy Harper before, but she is funny and a bit sarcastic – which I enjoy. This story is based on the good old-fashioned misunderstanding’s and miscommunication’s trope. So if that’s not your thing, this book isn’t for you. But if you enjoy lighthearted banter between friends, nosy family members and love, then it’s just about perfect.
