~ I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ~
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.
This was such a fun sweet read, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it is the perfect book to dive into when you just need an easy escape or to recover from a massive book hangover. Its just one of those books that is so easy to read and lovey to enjoy that it is a great book to pick up any time you need a pick up. Now, that doesn't mean the story isn't moving, because it definitely is. I loved the premise of this story. I loved that this woman who is left in an extraordinary situation doesn't give up, doesn't walk out on the responsibility that has been left on her shoulders, no she embraces it, she fights for it, she gives everything she has to make sure to give her very best. I love that she takes this child completely under her wing, when she has no clue why her room mate left her, she has not idea how to care for a child, she has no money to support herself much less a child, but she does it and she does it with the fierceness that any mother would posses.
Alexei, what isn't to love...other than he was of course, as seems to be the formula, prior to Ryleigh he was a bit of a man whore. If you are wanting to see a bit more of that side of him he does show up in Kendall's book Dear Jane, but you totally do not need to have read that to enjoy this story. I loved that he is just this big 'ol linebacker with a teddy bear heart. I loved that he doesn't even really think twice about helping Ry, that he doesn't try to be her Knight in Shining armor exactly, but that he has the ability to help and he does. Does he end up being a bit of savior for her, definitely but that was never his foremost intent and he never fails to understand that she is who she is and that she won't be stifled by a mach man *beats chest* kind of attitude from him.
This is in the end, like I mentioned about a really sweet story that you don't want to miss out on. If you are a fan of Kendall's or contemporary romance in general, get this one on your TBR and when you need that break from the world, use this as a little vacation. <3
