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.
The Billionaire’s Unexpected Baby is the second book in the Winning the Billionaire series but can be read as a standalone. It’s a fake marriage romance that is well written.
Leah had her first one night stand and ended up pregnant. Her best friend, Kiersten, convinces her to have a little fun with Brooks before she has to get serious and be a parent. They have an instant attraction that could definitely go somewhere and a few weeks after they first meet, Brooks finds out about Leah’s pregnancy and offers to marry her to save her job. When the father of Leah’s baby finally gets in touch, it turns out he is Brooks’ nemesis. How long will this marriage of convenience last?
I felt that I could really relate to Leah since I have been in a similar situation. She feels obligated to at least let her baby’s father have a chance at being a dad and it’s a hard thing to deal with in all honesty. Brooks was so down on himself at times and I really wanted to yell at him to snap out of it. I felt really invested in this book and really enjoyed it. I can’t wait to read what Ms. Archer writes next.
Rating: 4 stars
Kira Archer resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kiddos, and far too many animals in the house. She tends to laugh at inappropriate moments and break all the rules she gives her kids (but only when they aren’t looking), and would rather be reading a book than doing almost anything else. Most of her non-writing hours are spent hanging with her family and running her kids around because they are busy and she’s the taxi driver. She loves her romances a little playful, a lot sexy, and always with a happily ever after. She also writes historical romances as Michelle McLean.
