ONE BABY DADDY
By Meghan Quinn
"What are you doing now that your team is out of the running for the Stanley Cup?"
I need to forget. I need an escape.
Only one person isn't falling for my reputation as the NHL's Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend's house. She didn't want to hear my reason--she only wanted to playfully give me a hard time.
Adalyn is bold, sassy--and the perfect escape.
She's everywhere. In town and in my dreams, and suddenly I need to spend every waking moment with her.
And I do, making this summer the best off-season I've ever had.
But in the midst of getting lost in Adalyn, what I don't expect is to get her pregnant.
And what I definitely don't expect is having to fight for her affection.
“Would you mind zipping up the back of my dress?” She walks toward me, her flowery scent floating in my direction, spiking my yearning into overdrive.
“Uh, yeah . . . sure.”
She turns around, and looks over her shoulder. The back of her dress is completely open, the zipper undone to just above the curve of her beautifully round ass.
Shit, all that smooth, tan skin, covered by nothing but the velvety fabric of the dress. Is she wearing underwear? She’s not wearing a bra and I see no panty line.
Clearing my throat, I ask, “Are you wearing underwear, Adalyn?”
From over her shoulder, she smiles shyly. “Yes, it’s small though.”
Of course it is. Why wouldn’t it be?
Not being able to stop myself, I take a second to float my fingertips up her spine. From the initial touch, her back arches and a small gasp releases from her lips, but before I can think about stopping, she melts into my touch. Stepping closer, I place my hand on the back of her hip, my thumb pressing into her ass while the other hand explores the bare expanse of her back. Her head falls to my shoulder. Her lips part, and when I snake to the front of her dress, her breath hitches.
Eyes closed, I take in ragged breaths, my fingers inching closer and closer to her front, my cock painfully hard.
It’s been so goddamn long—and being with Adalyn has only spurred on my need—but I want to make sure we’re in a good place before we commit to anything. I want to make sure she’s ready emotionally because the minute I bury myself deep inside her, I know there will be no turning back. She will be mine forever.
But maybe for now, I can just have a little touch . . .
My cock pressed against her butt, she expertly grinds her backside into me, her hands moving to my neck, pulling my head down to hers. I kiss the side of her neck, using the hand that’s gripping her hips to guide her with her grinding in just the right place.
Fuck, that feels good.
I grunt, the sound vibrating over her sleek neck. My hand on her stomach, she arches wanting more of my touch, silently asking me to move north.
And I fucking comply. Inch by slow inch, I guide my hand to just below her breasts. When I halt my pursuit, a displeased groan escapes her.
I squeeze my eyes shut, trying to find the willpower. Her fingernails dig into my scalp, spurring me on as she turns her head and finds my lips.
She kisses me.
Her lips gliding across mine, her tongue diving into my mouth, her moans are vocal and sexy. Her delicious ass, pressing, grinding, undulating against my rock-hard cock makes me want to do so much more, makes me want to taste so much more.
Kim's 5 Star Review
Hayden Holmes just needs some time to escape from the disastrous ending of his rookie hockey season. Reconnecting with his old friend, Racer, Hayden meets his match and the woman of his dreams, Adalyn.
I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
Hayden is the golden boy of the Philadelphia Brawlers but the ending of the season didn’t go according to plan nor did the press conference after the game, showing off his alpha male, brooding angry side which doesn’t help him out. Heading to Binghamton to get some R & R and catch up with his childhood friend, Racer. Hayden un-expectantly meets the sassy Adalyn, who leaves a lasting impression on him.
Adalyn is used to men only sticking around for one night. She’s doing best to keep herself from getting another broken heart after a devastating attempt to start something with her long-time friend Logan, when she catches, Racer’s friend Hayden going through his mail. Being her fun-loving, bold yet sassy-self Adalyn keeps Hayden little secret.
When Hayden and Adalyn meet sparks fly. Yes, she caught Hayden snooping but the concern for his friend is what Adalyn see the most and gets her attention. After spending some time together at Racer party, Hayden knows who he wants but with Racer telling him she’s off limits he knows finding out where she lives or works is out of the question. You’ve got to give Hayden credit as he actually listened to what Adalyn was saying and went to every hospital in the area to track her down. Talk about being determined, Hayden goes after who he wants. These two have so much chemistry you can feel it as you read the book.
Hayden actually surprised me when he spent time getting to know Adalyn before getting intimate with her. The fact that he held of kissing Adalyn until the time was right, just show what a gentleman he is. It’s rare to find a guy who wants to get to know a woman before they take things further. I loved that Hayden wanted to give Adalyn the one thing she was missing with every other guy she ever dated.
With a career as a Hockey player means that sometimes you have to move when you don’t want to. This was the time when Hayden didn’t want. Just when he had the girl of his dreams, he loses her. If Adalyn thought a trade across the country would stop Hayden from loving her, boy she was wrong.
As in life there are always bumps in the road. The trade was Hayden and Adalyn’s first bump which ended up tearing them apart but the next bump, their biggest bump is what can bring them back together. This pregnancy was most definitely not planned with Adalyn and Hayden on opposite sides of the country. Keeping this secret from him, Adalyn does what she can to get through a tough first trimester but her best friend Emma, blows her cover by sending Hayden a cryptic email about going to see Adalyn. To say Hayden was surprised is understating it but it gives him hope that they can actually work things out.
The roller coaster ride these two go through pulls you in. You can’t help but fall in love with these two characters. You know they’re meant to be together but the stubbornness of Adalyn had me yell at the book. Hayden is what every girl wants. He actually cares about who he is with not what she can give him. He’s one in a million.
Meghan out did herself yet again. She creates characters that draw you in and create such emotion within you that you are so invested in the book you forget what time it is or how long you’ve been reading. I spent several late nights reading this book as I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to read other books with the characters from this this series!
