She wants a baby
All I’ve ever desired is a family of my own. Too afraid I’ll follow in my late mother’s footsteps, I plan to have a baby before time runs out. Problem is, I fell in love with someone unattainable. John Hamilton is kind, thoughtful, and generous...and it doesn’t hurt that he’s built like a Mack truck. I’m ready to throw caution to the wind and ask him to be the father of my child. The only problem? He’s my stepbrother, and it could destroy our family.
He just wants her
The first time I met Emery Collins, she was a scrawny teenager...and my new stepsister. She’s a grown woman now, and every long, hard inch of me has taken notice. But with our family ties, she’s officially off limits. Too bad she’s come to me with something she wants, something she needs from me. Now I can’t stop dreaming of filling her...of watching her belly swell with my child. What she’s asking for could tear apart our cobbled-together family. I’m just not sure it’s enough to stop me from taking what I want.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I’ve gotta be honest with you here, I was a little nervous going into Knocking Her Up. “Breeding” books are not something I’ve enjoyed in the past. Truth be told, if this one hadn’t been written by London Hale, I probably would’ve passed. I’m glad I didn’t, however. I really liked Emery and John, and the setup for this book — her desire to have a baby, with someone she trusts, before preventative ovary removal surgery — made it more appealing to me.
I enjoyed the relationship between Emery and John, forbidden as it could’ve been considered, as he’s her step-brother. They had a great connection and tons of chemistry. There was something really sweet about the way he stepped up to give her what she wanted most. Naturally, there were some seriously hot scenes in this book, but some of the dirty talk was a little off-putting to me. Don’t get me wrong, the scenes were SUPER hot. If you’re someone who enjoys baby-making books, you probably wouldn’t even blink while reading. But talk of wombs and filling them kinda makes me cringe — must be that whole “I’m never having children” thing I’ve got going on.
All in all, Knocking Her Up was a great book. I adored Emery and John and liked how things built between them. If you’re looking for a hot and dirty read with a fair few feels — and especially if you enjoy baby-making books — then look no further. I suspect you’ll enjoy this one quite a bit.
Emery was sweetness and seduction, sin and salvation, all wrapped up in the hottest fucking package I’d ever laid my eyes on. She was my biggest want, my only addiction.
“I’ve been yours for a long time. You just didn’t know it.”
