In case you missed it, there is a giveaway for this new release on my tour (excerpt) post here.
Strictly business…or is it?
Air force pilot Levi Lambert has seen plenty of danger—but his infant daughter might be the death of him. Fortunately, Levi’s found the answer to his sleep-deprived prayers: his next-door neighbor! Carly Gilmore is willing to be his nanny…until a small white lie turns their arrangement from business to very personal.
The fake engagement was intended to keep Levi from losing custody of his baby girl, but is causing all sorts of new problems. Not only does Carly attract trouble like bees to honey, but there’s the little matter of Levi’s smokin’-hot attraction to her. The last thing he needs is to fall in love…
Such a sweet story!
I haven’t read the first two stories in this series (Breaking Emily’s Rules and Airman to the Rescue)–yet!–but that didn’t keep me from enjoying the heck out of This Baby Business. I liked Levi and Carly quite a bit, and found it easy to root for them, both for what they individually wanted and needed and for them together as a couple–which was a bit tricky when it seemed that those wants and needs were going to keep them apart. They have some fantastic secondary character-BFFs and co-workers who help get them through things (please tell me Carly’s friends are getting stories? Please?) and (finally!) manage to figure out their own issues and make just the right kind of compromises in the end, giving us an ending that made me all warm and gooey inside.
(And good news–just when it seemed baby Grace and rescue dog Digger were little more than super cute plot moppets, they did something that made them seem more real and saved the day. Watch for Digger’s ideas of where he belongs in Levi’s house–because it’s just so gosh darn cute!)
Books 1 and 2 are now sitting in my TBR pile, and I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for future books from this author!
