With crackling chemistry and a sexy doctor you’ll want to kiss one minute and smack the next, this accidental pregnancy romance hooked me in IMMEDIATELY. I always love strangers to lovers romances, and this adds an element of enemies to lovers that was pure delight. These two don’t know anything about each other, but the sparks that fly between them are all kinds of HOT. Their first interactions are fiery fun, slowly simmering into something sweeter and more heartfelt. Our hero is in way over his head, and it was fun (and a little frustrating) to watch him heal his broken pieces. He’s got a protective, possessive side that was super swoony, and he shows his affection through actions instead of words. It’s another fantastic installment in a series that I’ve been slowly catching up on (backwards), and it left me ready to dive into the next one.
The story follows Lynsey, a woman who is both attracted to and a little infuriated by the temperamental doctor she keeps running into at the hospital cafeteria. On the day that she has a particularly memorable interaction with Josh, Lynsey has the unfortunate luck of being forced to talk to him at a bar. One thing leads to another, and the two feuding near-strangers have a hot and steamy night together. After disappearing at the end of the night, Lynsey believes she’ll never see the man again… until she ends up in the ER, and he’s the doctor on call. He’s also the man who is tasked with letting Lynsey know that she’s pregnant… with his baby. As if sleeping with the moody man wasn’t bad enough, now Lynsey is stuck with him forever.
This really put me through my paces, emotionally. It’s scorching one minute, playful the next, and then angsty when you least expect it. I loved that Lynsey and Josh were forced to connect and push through in moments when they would’ve otherwise given up, and their hard-won relationship felt sweeter because of it. I still kinda wanted to smack Josh sometimes, but I also adored his softer side. He’s a man who doesn’t know how to love – or is at least incredibly resistant to doing so – but he’s a natural caretaker and truly loving deep down. Compartmentalizing his feelings as a doctor does not translate well to his personal life, and that causes plenty of conflict. However, the overall tone is light and sexy, with SO MUCH chemistry between these two. It reads easily as a standalone, but also makes a great addition to the series, and I’m kicking myself for not moving it up my TBR sooner.
The audio is excellent! This one isn’t duet narration like many of Daws’ others, but it’s the next best thing. I love both Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton, so it was no hardship to listen to them both. They both give emotive performances that seriously enhance the story, and it’s such a good audio experience. The runtime is perfect for bingeing in one day, though I don’t recommend this for the office. It’s steamy from the start and stays that way throughout, with many fan-worthy moments that you won’t want your co-workers overhearing, lol! The vibe works very well in audio though, with much of the story remaining light. I had a great time listening to this one, and it’s got me ready to one-click the others in the series.
That awkward moment when an ER doctor has to inform you that you’re pregnant…with his baby.
Three things Lynsey Jones knows about the hot doctor: he’s grouchy, an arrogant jerk, and strangely obsessed with pie.
Three things Dr. Josh Richardson knows: he doesn’t talk about his past, he doesn’t do relationships, and the crazy girl in the hospital cafeteria who ate a fistful of French silk pie…is annoyingly irresistible.
After a chance meetup at a bar and a heated cab ride together, things come to a head and now instead of hating each other, they’re horizontal in a bed.
Three months later, the weird cafeteria stalker who crept out of Josh’s house like a thief in the night, winds up as his patient in the ER after her Tinder date from hell.
The doctor is prepared to keep it cool and professional. That is until her bloodwork reveals that she’s pregnant.
What really throws him for a loop…is that the surprise baby…is his.
