Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde
Book Boyfriend Series Book 4
Release Date Nov. 14, 2017
Connor Prescott doesn't do one night stands (yes, ladies, he's an anomaly) so when he meets a beautiful woman during a snowed in night at the airport who wants to forget her heartache, he makes an exception. Their night together is incendiary, and by morning Connor wants more . . . except his sexy stranger is gone. He's pretty sure he'll never see her again, until three and a half years later she finds him, and changes his entire world with three little words . . You're a daddy.
Rock Solid was a solid book for me. It had elements I've come to expect from these authors-a sexy alpha male, swoon worthy moments and sexy times. I was a little leery of this book before starting it-secret baby is not usually one of my favorite things to read-but I love these authors so I wanted to give it a go.
Katie has had a rocky past with relationships. She's complicated, which I think to some might be frustrating but she really had her reasons for behaving how she did. I like that she did let her guard down in the book and she grew as a person, just maybe not at the pace I would have liked.
Holy hell, Connor. He's definitely hot, definitely swoony and great at dirty talk. But as much as I loved seeing him try to pursue Katie, I adored seeing him with Val. Those two had some amazing moments. Not everyone would handle the curveballs Katie threw at Connor as well as he did. I really liked him.
There's definitely sparks with these two. There's a connection that you just believe (even if Katie didn't want to acknowledge it). This book definitely had some kindle melting moments in it for me. Aside from the relationship between Katie and Connor I really liked seeing the relationship between Connor and Val. Val was just adorable in this book!
The writing here was good, with these authors it always is. There were some moments where I wanted a bit more from the characters, particularly Katie, and there were definitely a couple issues that got glossed over. That being said, overall I did really like the book. I thought it was a fun, fast read. I would recommend this title.
Fast forward 3 years, and Connor has a daughter.
I liked how this was handled, mostly. I thought that there were places where it was too easy, and that a lot of the conflict was ignored. Well, maybe not ignored as the potential issues in the situation were addressed, but I felt that they were glossed over.
I liked the relationship with Connor and Kylie and I liked that she didn't make it difficult for him to see and be with his daughter...I actually liked that she tracked down Connor to make sure he knew about his daughter.
Overall, this was well written and I enjoyed it, there were just a couple of areas where I felt that there could have been more and that some of the story was a little too simple.
I do recommend this title.
About the Authors:

Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carly Phillips is now an Indie author who writes to her own expectations and that of her readers.

Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison (http://www.janelledenison.com/)) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers. So, why the new pen name? As Janelle Denison I’ve always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance. However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with. That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories. Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship. I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates. Sign up to receive my newsletter for updates and news!
