Bailey Jones doesn't know jack about babies, but she knows how much it sucks to have a deadbeat father. So when her sister drops off her newborn baby and then disappears, Bailey is ready and willing to confront anyone, including a six-foot-two, sexier-than-sin Navy SEAL sniper, and make him do his duty.
Alexei "Camel" Kamarov is not the sort of man to carelessly father a kid, but as the oldest of six, he does know a thing or two about babies. The firebrand on his doorstep might have mistakenly tagged him as the baby daddy, but Bailey is cute, and Alexei is more than willing to give her a hands-on class in Baby 101.
When a ruthless criminal comes looking for the missing sister--putting Bailey and the baby in danger--the situation escalates. Bringing them under his roof and enlisting his HOT teammates to help find Bailey's sister are easy. But as Alexei and Bailey draw closer, passions erupt and feelings tangle.
That's nothing compared to the danger lurking in the shadows--and the test that awaits them both. Bailey will need to give everything she's got to redeem Alexei's faith in love. And he'll have to move heaven and earth to save her--before someone takes her away from him for good...
This was the best hook for a book I've read in a long time and it kept me engaged until I finished. I loved that Alexei is so confident that he is not the father but still continues to help Bailey out, showing just how much of a "stand-up" guy he really is. Since we see much of the book from his point of view it is also interesting how he may not think he's a good guy because his intentions aren't entirely pure but his actions speak differently which makes him easy to love for both the reader and for Bailey. I also loved how Bailey is such a strong female character but still doesn't have to be "badass" to prove her strength. Both characters are able to grow which makes the story satisfying as well.
OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
