Father's Day has blessed me with a baby book bonanza and I just don't know what to do with myself. Oh, wait, I do know what to do. I'll give you all reviews for the three daddies-and-their-babies books that I read yesterday. Hooray for Father's Day and for father's all across the globe.
One word, people: Adorable.
Chad and Sony have been friends
since they were little kids. Sonny is the big bear with a heart of gold
and a shaved head. Chad is the kind of nerdy one who doesn't know just
what a good person he is.
Sonny is calm and pretty much the rock
in Chad's life. Actually, Sonny is pretty much the rock in everyone's
life. This is good because the story opens with Chad freaking out after
finding out that the friend he donated sperm to has just died and left
the newborn baby to Chad. Sonny is called and what ensues is the start
of a little thing called family.
Sonny and Chad together were
just sweet as apple pie. You really feel the fact that they love each
other and would do anything for one another. Watching them settle into
family life with little baby Annalee was very heart warming. The
progression was convincing and at the end of the story I felt like they
were a couple who would be watching their grandchildren play one day.
This story was satisfying and I can definitely recommend it.
P.S.: I WANT Brian and Dex's story SO BAD.
This story was such a disappointment to me. I was excited about it
because it's COWBOYS and BABIES. Two things that I love, but this story
was not something that I ended up loving.
Riley's an Australian
who's been kicked off of the ranch of his dead wife's family. Now Riley
and his newborn son have nowhere to go, no money and no prospects. The
family's driven him to the middle of nowhere in the middle of a cold and
rainy night. Dramatic right? I know but I was sticking with it because
of the cowboys and babies.
In any case, Riley
ends up in a barn and is found the next morning by Noah, a big strapping
cowboy. What comes next is gobs and gobs of drama and tears.
Kidnappings, vicious rumors, hostility, cops, crazy women and...well,
did I mention the tears?
Riley seems to cry quite a bit and I thought that he could have used a Valium or something.
With all of the melodrama and tears not even cowboys and babies could save this story for me. Recommend? No, I just can't.
I was looking forward to the story and hoping so, so hard that it would
knock my socks off. People were telling me not to get my hopes up and I
was defending this story because shifters AND babies should be a recipe
for greatness. I was the champion of the baby/shifter book.
This book though....this book did not work for me at all.
is a guy who's won custody of his 2 year old daughter but lost
everything else in the process. Liam is a shifter who works for his
alpha, has money and two big puppies. You now know everything about
these two men that I know. How is that, you ask? Because in 79 pages
there isn't much of anything that's explained and it drove me CRAZY!!
is really explained about the shifters. Nothing is really explained
about the little girl's ability to know they are shifters. Travis' back
story is disjointed and hazy at best. The confrontation with the little
girl's mother is a total WTF moment and the end of the story just made
me go "That's it??!".
This story was just...not..good. I was
actually frowning when it ended because not only had my hopes had been
dashed, but they were stepped on and then set on fire.
