One minute, pregnant Leah Andrews is throwing up over the side of a yacht and the next, she's married to party boy Brooks. It's an arrangement born of sheer desperation to save her job, but now the tabloids are all over them, their friends are running a pool betting on whether they'll actually stay married until Baby Day, and worst of all, she and her new husband might just be falling for one another. But they belong in opposite worlds. It'll never work.
Billionaire app developer Brooks Larson lives his life on the light side. Until he tries to play hero and claims to be Leah's husband. Now he's up to his ears in Lamaze classes, baby powder...and unexpected marital bliss. But he'd make a rotten husband and horrible father. Leah and the baby deserve so much better. Add in major baby daddy drama and the whole situation is the worst idea EVER. But sometimes those bad ideas might just be the best ones.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I loved The Billionaire’s Unexpected Baby! This series is really rocking it for me, with romance, feels, laughs and serious amounts of steam plus some downright hot sexiness. If you’re into contemporary relationship-driven romance you should give them a look.
We met Brooks in the previous installment, 69 Million Things I Hate About You. He was the self-appointed class clown, party boy that took nothing serious. The fact that he couldn’t keep his mouth shut was not an issue until he landed himself in the biggest mess ever… Introducing himself as Leah’s future husband to help her keep her job.
Leah couldn’t deny the chemistry between Brooks and her, but their timing was definitely off since she was pregnant with another man’s baby when they met. When he proposes they get married, for a little while, so she can keep her job she can’t believe he’s serious but with no other options and a baby on the way, she reluctantly agrees.
Neither of them could ever imagine just how well they’d be at playing house, and soon all the pretending seems to be a thing of the past. Unfortunately, a baby is a sure way to get a dose of reality, and responsibilities are not always fun. Add to it an unwillingness to discuss their feelings, and the fact that Brooks and the baby daddy seem to hate the other’s guts with a passion, and shit eventually hits the fan.
I completely fell for Brooks. Yes, he was goofy and silly, had the sense of humor of a hormonal 12-year-old and the emotional maturity of a mango, but he was incredibly sweet, caring, and funny. The way he fell in love with Leah and her baby was totally heart-melting. I never quite understood where all his self-deprecating “No one takes me seriously so I won’t either” thing came from, but he seemed to make it a self-fulfilling prophecy
Leah was the exact opposite of Brooks. A high school teacher in a Catholic School, she was quiet and down to earth but could be sassy and funny too. I loved them together, and how they gradually became a family. I won’t say their lack of communication and downright avoidance of dealing with stuff didn’t drive me crazy, but they were so cute together it made up for it.
The Billionaire’s Unexpected Baby was perfect with the right mix of sweet romance, hot sextivities, funny banter and deep feelings. That we get to see the previous couple was a definite plus and I can’t wait to see who the next billionaire to fall will be.
