Blurb: A moment of desperation
My kids were so young when their mom died they’ve never known any parent but me. In the four years since, I’ve devoted my entire life to them and my career in the Marines. But now my parents are retiring out-of-state and I’m desperate for childcare. Then my best friend from high school suggests I hire his little sister as a summer nanny. Only Amanda Cross isn’t so little anymore, and for the first time since I was widowed, I’m tempted to do something that’s all for me.
When I was a teenager there was only one boy I wanted–Pierce Roberts. But he was too old, and I was his best friend’s sister. Now I’m all grown up and back in town after college graduation. With student loans about to come due, I’m desperate for a paycheck. So when my older brother suggests I go to work as a nanny for Pierce’s two kids, I jump at the chance. But this won’t be a normal job for me. It’s a golden opportunity to show the man of my dreams that I can be the woman of his.
Her Soldier’s Baby is short & sexy, single dad, best friend’s sister, low drama yumminess with an Alpha Marine, ferocious four year-olds, and an HEA that will make you swoon.
May be spoilers:
Her Soldier’s Baby has 12 chapters and an epilogue and is about Pierce and Amanda.
We meet Pierce who’s best friends with Amanda. He’s been a widow for a few years and raising 2 kids on his own with the help of his parents. I’m always worried about reading about a dead spouse as I worry that the heroine would be second, but that was not the case at all.
Now, his parents are moving and he needs help, so his best friend recommends him to hire his sister as a nanny.
Amanda needs a little extra money to help with school loans. Amanda had a crush on Pierce when they were younger, but he was much older than her. So they were never together, and never close to being together when they were younger. She’s still a virgin and he’s been celibate for years.
When they first meet again, you can just feel Pierce fall. They do speak about his late wife a couple of times, but he’s not pining for her and you can definitely tell that Amanda is his one true love, my opinion anyways.
Everything moves super fast. They are both all in from the beginning. No drama at all. Just them getting together. Great read, I thought. I just loved them together.
No cheating, no ow/om drama, no separations.
Epilogue is 5 years out, they are happily married with 3 kids and pregnant. There is also a wedding epilogue that you can get at the end of the book for free, very sweet.
New author for me and will definitely be waiting for more. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
