Two brothers. One impossible choice

From the moment her suspicions are confirmed, Lily knows she’s screwed. What the hell is a nineteen year old with no future going to do with a baby? She can barely take care of herself. She needs help.

In walks Sloan McClain, the only man Lily has ever truly wanted — and the brother of the boy whose baby she’s carrying. While Lily expects a great number of outcomes when she tells Sloan her news, him proposing marriage and asking her to keep the baby is not one of them, especially not when she has every intention of giving the baby a better future by giving it the home she can’t.

Having spent the majority of his life protecting his brother from the bone-breaking fists of their father, Sloan is no stranger to hardship, loss and abandonment. He has learned long ago never to rely on anyone to take care of what was his, and that baby is his. He isn’t about to let Lily give away his family, nor can he allow that child to destroy the future he has built for Cole. His only option: marry the mother and claim the baby as his.

But no secret ever stays hidden forever.

Alexis says…

I picked up Forever His Baby on a whim not really knowing what I was getting into. I literally read this book in a few hours not wanting to put it down.

We meet Lily right away and she has just learned that she is pregnant. The problem is that she is pregnant and her best friend Cole is the father. As a pact, the two promised to give away their virginities to each other so that when Cole went away to college he wouldn’t be a virgin. Lily also just wanted to get the whole thing over with. Both Cole and Lily have no actual feelings for each other. Ironically, Lily has been in love with Sloan, Cole’s brother for many years. Unbeknownst to Lily, Sloan also had feelings for her for many years.

When faced with Lily’s dilemma of telling Cole, Sloan, being the selfless person that he is offers to help raise Lily’s child as his own. Sloan doesn’t want his brother to give up what he has worked so hard for. Sloan gave up most of his childhood to raise Cole after their mother passed away. He was also the one who took the brunt of the beatings that their drunken father would give him.

After much wooing, Lily finally agrees to Sloan’s help. This was my favorite part of the book. It was obvious that Sloan would do anything for Lily and her child, his love for them was beyond obvious. Of course, there are things that get in the way of their happy ever after.

This book was such a sweet read for me. Between the small-town gossip that surrounded the story, to the beautiful love story between Sloan and Lily, and well Sloan in general, I was hooked. I rarely finish a book these days within a few hours so to say I enjoyed this book immensely is an understatement. Forever His Baby also had just the right amount of steam mixed into this book with such heart.
