Blurb: 34-year-old Zeke Winston with his wild beard and tattoos might not look like your typical financier, but everybody knows not to let his appearances fool them. Businesslike, sensible and level-headed, he’s been the CEO of his family privately held, worldwide hedge fund company, E&W Capital International, for years and leads the most unromantic life ever.
Old-moneyed, hard-working, charitable and ruggedly handsome as he is, he can hardly avoid hitting the list of most eligible New York diehard bachelors every year, but he doesn’t think his status will ever change.
He is the man who can’t be moved until, suddenly, he becomes quite the opposite when he touches love for the first time one fateful night and a curvy fairy turns his life upside down.
And then she disappears like a dream and now he’ll do anything to find her, but the Big Apple has never been so immense it seems, yet no matter how heartbroken he is and how little he has to go on, he still can never forget her and will never stop looking for his little bit of sky.
He will find her. He was her first lover, she was his first love, he has already lost her once and won’t let it happen again.
22-year-old Skye Brighton is a camera-shy accountant laden with more curves than she can handle sometimes. She may be full of energy, spunky and gritty, but she’s very private, doesn’t like to draw attention to herself and she has never known much happiness. Orphaned and almost completely alone in the world, she just got unfairly fired from her first real job, but she’s used to be an underdog with no champion and won’t let this drag her down.
She thinks she’s unsinkable, she’s always been, though the universe seems to hold a bit of a grudge against her and has tried to kick her down plenty of times.
And then her life gets that much more complicated when a sexy, large, tattooed bearded gentleman drags her away, steals all of her firsts and leaves with her something she never expected to have.
A broken heart might just be the thing to finally sink her.
Wasn’t love supposed to conquer all when she finally found The One?
What the heck happened there?
So yeah, the forecast on this stormy fairy tale might not look sunny right now, but don’t worry, you know that you can, as always, trust me to make this 100% SAFE and happy.
Check out this ingredients’ list if you don’t believe me:
One giant, obsessed OTT possessive alpha baby daddy, insta-heat, plenty of spicy smutty times, a heroine that’s so sugary and sassy, she will add all the sweetness and laughter you need to this story, a dusting of angst, a pinch of thrill, a tablespoon of intrigue, a side of secret bundle of joy and a big serving of happily ever after that will tickle you pink and leave you full and content.
By now you’ve guessed it already: this filthy-cheesy romance is insta-love fluffiness and second-chance-at-love goodieness all wrapped up in one big candy-coated messy package. There’s no cheating, it’s HEA-guaranteed and there’s no OW/OM drama, though there’s a dastardly evil stepsister behind the scenes, fair warning!
May be spoilers:
I received an ARC for an honest review.
Secret Billionaire Baby Daddy has 14 chapters with 2 epilogues and it’s about Skye and Zeke.
Instalove when they first meet. She’s a virgin and he’s been celibate for many years.
We start off with them having hot sex, which was great. I always love a story that starts that way.
They fall hard, but it’s over when someone claims she’s just one of many and he has a fiancee. She’s broken and leaves. Takes him 14 months to find her again. I do have to be honest and say that I skimmed a bit when they were apart.
Things move fast when they see each other as they are both all in, neither have been with others during their separation.
Cute story. I liked it. I loved the steamy scenes.
No cheating, no om drama, ow drama in the form of his stepsister, 14 month separation.
Epilogue is a year out, then 8 years later. They are happily married with 4 kids. I gave it 3.5 out of 5 stars. Thanks for reading.
