"What are you doing now that your team is out of the running for the Stanley Cup?"
I need to forget. I need an escape.
Only one person isn't falling for my reputation as the NHL's Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend's house. She didn't want to hear my reason--she only wanted to playfully give me a hard time.
Adalyn is bold, sassy--and the perfect escape.
She's everywhere. In town and in my dreams, and suddenly I need to spend every waking moment with her.
And I do, making this summer the best off-season I've ever had.
But in the midst of getting lost in Adalyn, what I don't expect is to get her pregnant.
And what I definitely don't expect is having to fight for her affection.
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.
So here’s the deal: I’ve been waiting on Hayden to get a book since I first met him way back in when Meghan’s Binghamton series. I absolutely adored him. Originally, I hoped he would get his HEA in Three Blind Dates — and I was quite disappointed when he didn’t until I sat back and realized it just really wasn’t meant to be. Noely could never have his heart because another woman had it. With that, I wanted even more to meet this woman and get their story. One Baby Daddy was everything I wanted and more. I have so much love for this book, the characters and the Dating by Numbers series in general.
I’m not even sure what to say about One Baby Daddy. I loved Hayden. Adalyn was such a great match for him. Their chemistry, their banter, the totally yummy slow burn… I loved it all. I felt kinda dumb for ever thinking he and Noely could or should be a couple, tbh, because there’s no doubt Adalyn was end game. I loved getting the chance to go back and see how they first met and how things progressed with them, knowing what was to come once Hayden was traded. *sad face emoji*
Hayden was dreamy. I mean, he had a bit of a temper on the ice, but he was a sweetheart off of it. He was also sexy AF, which was a nice combination. He was basically all-in for Adalyn from the beginning and you know how much I swoon over that. In a slight twist on the norm, he was the one slowing things down and intent on building a connection instead of just hooking up. While I loved Hayden’s more reserved nature, I equally appreciated Adalyn’s more forward one. It’s just one of the ways they balanced each other nicely and it so worked for me.
I’m not going to get into the storyline any further because I feel it’s best if you experience it for yourself. I thought the baby storyline was done very well. Of course, I’m totally Team Hayden+Adalyn, so I loved the scenes once they were reunited, when he was going for what he wanted. So many swoons and feels. I couldn’t have asked for a better story.
No doubt in my mind she’s someone you only come across once in a lifetime, and fuck if I’m not nervous to take that next step, to see if my gut reaction is right, that this girl is my game changer.
God, I want inside her, but I think I need inside her heart more than in her body.
I can only watch him walk around shirtless for so long. I can only make out with him for so long before my need gets too overwhelming. I can only dry-hump him so many times before I lost my ever-loving mind. He’s driving me crazy. He’s creating a monster with every day that goes by… sexless.
