One-Night Stand Rule #1: always check the condom's expiry date.
Career-orientated Holly Whittaker has a plan, and being a mom is not part of it. Her not-quite-a-fairytale childhood involved being brought up by thirty nannies (yes, thirty!), so what the heck does she know about being a mom anyway?
Playboy Josh Hoffer has no room in his life for a family or steady girlfriend. His hockey career comes first. Life is tough when you're on the road more times than you're not. Besides, what does he know about diapers and baby yoga and fairytale princesses?
After Holly receives some unexpected bad news, she's looking to blow off a little steam, and hot sex with Mr. No Commitment himself fits the bill just fine. But sex is never without consequences, and this time it's more than her heart that is at stake. This time, Mr. No Commitment and Ms. Career need to figure out what's really important to them and find room in their heart for another—plus one.
Decidedly with Baby book summary coming soon..
This is the second book in the By the Bay series but can be read as a standalone. This is a sports romance, friends to lovers, and surprise baby romance all rolled into one. It was such a sweet and hot read! I adored Josh! He was a no strings attached guy and he didn’t want marriage and children. Oh how life throws you for a loop! He was amazing from the start! He was this strong, sexy hockey player but he was so much more. He was sweet, attentive and supportive. He had me swooning throughout! Nothing better than a sexy man with a baby! Ovaries exploding! He is the perfect book boyfriend! Holly is in San Francisco from Australia to work. She is waiting to get her Green Card and her life is great. She has a great job, wonderful friends that she loves and she is away from her cold and distant parents. Her brothers are awesome and provided great entertainment throughout the book. She is career oriented and has no intention of getting married and have a family. Her parents were not the best role models. Imagine her surprise when she found out she was pregnant! She doubted her ability to be a loving mother. This fun, sexy, and sweet friends to lover’s story is just what I wanted. A light read that made me have those tingles and happy feels. Even though they both had a lot going on with their lives and careers, love won out! I highly recommend this sweet and spicy read! 45
I had so much fun reading this friends to lovers romance. It was hilarious, heartwarming, and very sexy! Josh and Holly met thru mutual friends and became fast friends themselves. They made each other laugh, liked the same movies and were both focused on their careers. Neither was ready to settle down making them perfect for each other. After a night of drinking too much, they acted on the attraction they both tried to deny. Unfortunately while drinking too much, Holly told her family she had a boyfriend to stop them from trying to set her up. Now in the light of day how will she deal with her impulsiveness. In steps Josh to save the day. What could go wrong when you try to deceive your family and yourself? I really liked both Josh & Holly and I loved them together. They had fun, their banter was witty and they had great chemistry! It wasn't an easy journey for them tho. One had an unstable job and the other wasn't a citizen, so their life could change rather quickly. But I was cheering for them all the way. I had so much fun reading this charming, exhilarating and steamy story. There were so many hilarious situations, heartwarming moments, and steamy, sexy moments as well. This story had it all, interesting characters, witty banter, and steamy love scenes, all in a multilayered story. I definitely recommend this book! 45
Really loved Josh and Holly's story. They were both such great strong characters and I enjoyed watching them change and grow as the story went on. Holly is career oriented and has no clue how to be a good mother. Her role models growing up were all nannies. Josh too is all about his career. He's a professional hockey player and on the road more than half the year. No time in there for a family. Sometimes though the best things in life are a surprise! Great story. Great characters. Great writing. Don't miss it. I highly recommend. 45
