Blurb: One-night stand + two percent condom failure rate = happily ever after?
Bar owner Kevin Kowalski is used to women throwing their phone numbers at him, but lately he's more interested in finding a woman to settle down with. A woman like Beth Hansen. If only their first meeting hadn't gone so badly...
Beth's tending bar at a wedding when she comes face-to-face with a tuxedo-clad man she never thought she'd see again. She tries to keep her distance from Kevin but, by last call, she can't say no to his too-blue eyes or the invitation back to his room. Then she slips out before breakfast without leaving a note and, despite their precautions, pregnant.
Kevin quickly warms to the idea of being a dad and to seeing where things go with Beth. After all, he's not the player she thinks he is. But she's not ready for a relationship and, given his reputation, it's going to take a lot to convince her to go on a second date with the father of her child...
Review: Really cute. Not your typical “one night stand+pregnancy=HEA” but it is all the better for being a bit different.
I really dug the conflict between these two characters. The secondary story had good characters with issues all their own that maybe didn’t add much to the main plot but was still good. All in all it all worked well and was wrapped up in a very nice package that left me with a smile in the end :) While there were times when I thought the heroine was a bit over the top with her desire to take care of herself and depend on no one, the explanation that revealed why she has such a strong drive to be an indepindant free spirit worked and left no holes :)
Clever and witty, it was a really cute read. Oh, and the burgers described in the story? Where can I get one or two of those ;)
