Series: The Baby Saga Series #3
on March 30, 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance
It started with a drink and ended in a night neither will ever forget.
Calla McClain had done a great number of questionable things in her past, getting drunk at a friend's wedding and winding up in bed with the man she loved should have been a dream come true. Only their one night of mind blowing sex wasn't the only mistake she'd made in her intoxicated stupor.
Waking up hitched to the girl he'd been in love with since they were sixteen suited Jared just fine. He was in no hurry to cut those papers up, no matter how hard the new Mrs. Dumont insisted she was no good for him. He wasn't going to let her keep them apart, and he sure as hell wasn't going to let her walk away now that she belonged to him.
But can Jared accept the demons snapping at Calla's heels? Can he convince her they were perfect for each other? And what will happen when they learn that getting married was the least of their problems?
Yep, another Airicka Phoenix book read within 24 hours. I can’t explain it…I’m totally addicted to this series.
You will remember Calla from the other two books, she is Cole and Lily’s first daughter. I was a bit worried how this time gap was going to work. But I will be the first to admit that it totally did. In Be My Baby she is all grown up and hiding a dark secret that has changed her from the person she was. Jared you may remember from Bye-Bye Baby, he is Damon’s best friend.
This book starts off with quite the bang almost literally. After a rough night, Calla and Jared wake up hungover and in bed together. This doesn’t usually sound like a problem, right?! Well for Calla it is. She has spent more of her energy trying to keep Jared at bay because she doesn’t think she is good enough for him. Jared on the other hand could not be more elated. He finally has the girl that he has loved for as long as he can remember next to him. What happens next is for you to read, trust me it does not disappoint.
I think this Be My Baby may be my favorite of the series. For some reason I felt more connected to Calla than Beth or Lily. Maybe it’s because I sorta read about her growing up? That sounds kinda silly though, right?! She had gone through something very traumatic during her time at college and came back a different Calla. The new Calla does not think she is worthy of a relationship, especially one with Jared. One thing that I really liked about Calla was that she recognized her old self and the stuff that she did that wasn’t really a great thing. Throughout this book, you see Calla really come into her own and find herself.
Jared was just great. He put on the swoon when it was needed. He was beyond incredible. The one thing that really stood out was his determination to get the girl. He was also very hardworking and just a stand-up guy.
Calla and Jared had some seriously intense chemistry whirling around in this book. The push and pull they had was mildly angsty and I just devoured it. Seriously, sneak reading at work was totally involved with this book!
I highly recommend all three books in this series if you are looking for a fantastic series that will literally suck you in. And don’t get me started on the next one…I CANNOT WAIT for Willa and Damon’s story. Counting down the days.
