The Baby Bargain: A Once a Marine Series Book (Entangled Indulgence)

The Baby Bargain: A Once a Marine Series Book (Entangled Indulgence) - Jennifer Apodaca The Baby Bargain is a cute story, it just tugs at the heart strings. It’s a good book for a feel-good pick-me-up.Meg is working hard to forget Adam and build her vet practice when he walks in with an injured dog he comes across while he’s in town. The tension is immediate and palpable, since they’ve always lusted after each other but he is afraid of a future with her and she is afraid he will break her heart again, not to mention, he has a son he doesn’t know about. The intensity between them is delicious and wildly exciting, because they obviously can’t keep their minds – and hands hehe – off one another.There were a couple of niggly bits that did bother me, however. Adam is very vulnerable, but he’s also a total dog. For example, he is constantly looking to get into Meg’s panties. It was entertaining for sure, but at the same time, I wanted to say, “relax man, ease your boner.” I’m probably going to have to edit that part out for my Amazon review… He also said some cheesy things like “That is the sweetest sight. Your panties are damp, clinging to you.” Well first off, thanks for pointing out the obv there, bud, and secondly, what is sweet about wet panties? Did you mean sexy and screw-me-hot? And C) did Meg spooge all over herself to get them completely wet enough to cling, or maybe perhaps pee her pants? I had questions. Likewise, Meg frustrated me sometimes, because she played that damn hard-to-get card and then ran into his arms (and boxers) every chance she could get. Let’s be honest, honey, that’s how you got pregnant to begin with.But they both had great chemistry together and you want them to be together. The plot is interesting; Meg is being framed for a crime she says she didn’t commit, and Adam, being an ex-Marine and spec ops, now owns a security company and has the resources to help her. Between the plot tension and bedroom tension, the pair just explode. I enjoyed the story from end to end!Overall, the general message of the story is that the things you are looking for are sometimes exactly where you last left them. Maybe the paths we choose to reach our destinations aren’t always direct, but we get there eventually.Pick this up if you like cute romances, especially with a little added mystery. You’ll enjoy yourself. This is especially for readers who enjoy Nora Roberts.This review is also posted at Nerdhuffing.com. I received this book from the publisher in exchange of an honest review.
