He’s bossy, moody, and overprotective. He’s also a pro athlete who needs to focus on winning games and staying out of the headlines. I’m fiercely independent and need a man like I need a second period each month. So when our worlds collide, I never expected him to be the one to jump in and save me. Especially not when my roommate disappears, leaving me with her baby. I’m clueless about babies—and it shows. Good thing Alexei isn’t. With six nieces and nephews and an apparent hero complex, the dude is both sexy and more than capable. It’s a combination that makes it easy to forget we’re just playing house.
Alexei and Ryleigh meet in a most unconventional way-but it works. It works because it shows the character of these two right off the bat. They're both strong and stubborn. I liked watching Alexei show Ryleigh she could count on him and still be independent at the same time. He won me over from the start so I championed him winning her, too.
There is a sweetness to this story, but like I said there is definitely heat. You can feel the attraction between these two characters right away and I definitely believed in it. I liked that there was a bit of hesitance on Ryleigh's part, that she didn't just immediately fall at Alexei's feet. I also love that she wasn't impressed with his fame whatsoever. The connection between them was strong and I loved watching them explore it.
This was a quick read for me and the plot moved well. The writing was well done as always and the story just flowed along the pages. I'll say that this epilogue was one of my favorites as well.
I enjoyed this title and would absolutely recommend it.
Sometimes, it is fun to read a book that you just enjoy. This was one of those books.
I liked both Alexei and Ryleigh. I mostly believed in their characters. Yes, the story was maybe a little far-fetched...but, I have had things happen in my life that I would not believe were I to read them in a book...so, the fact that it didn't seem like an impossibly meet cute was good enough for me.
As always, this was enjoyable. It was sexy, I liked the characters, it was well written and it didn't feel like it ended abruptly with major parts of the story left unsettled.
I enjoyed this title, and I recommend it.
