Book Review: 'The Baby Pact' by Lexi Whitlow
Southern author Lexi Whitlow has divided her time between Virginia and North Carolina and earned her degree in English literature. Now she writes novels whose main subjects are bad boys - fighters, tough-as-nails cowboys, bikers, and criminals - and she has published seven novels of this genre to date.
Lexi unfolds her story in a time sequence - ten years ago when we meet our leading lady Eliza and the hunk Macon and discover the act that changes her. Slowly we glide into the present and the synopsis informs us of the circle of life these two dance. ‘She's desperate to have my baby. Eliza Lane was the good girl in town, until I got a hold of her. I ruined her, and she gave it right back. Now she’s back in town, on the run from her abusive ex-husband. She needs help — and she’s ready to start a family. She just doesn’t want the whole marriage thing that goes along with it. Fine by me. I’m a billion dollar playboy, and after I split with Eliza, I never wanted to settle down. Her luscious curves are making me want to sign up for the job of Baby Daddy anyway. Once I get a taste of her, the old addiction returns. This good girl turns bad just for me. Now it's my mission to make her and our future baby all mine —and I’ll move heaven and earth to protect her if anyone stands in our way.’
Lots of naughty words and erotic steam and just when you think the story is over, Lexi adds a bonus book – BAD BOY’S FAKE WEDDING and a touch of A PERFECT SEAL. Both are short and make for a quick and stimulating evening’s read. Grady Harp, October 17
