Sergeant’s Secret Baby was a wonderful book that had me captivated from page one.
Life had taught Shiloh Anderson some very hard lessons. When her bad news boyfriend ran off with everything she owned and left her stranded in small town bar that was when things started looking up for this very independent girl. She found herself befriended by a friendly bartender and then knocked up by his sexy Army Sergeant brother after a smoking hot one night stand. Drake Edwards didn’t forget the mysterious beauty he hooked up with the night before he shipped out to complete his last tour of duty. However, he was stunned when she contacted him a few months later to break the news that he was about to become a daddy. He did not take it well, at all. He made a big mistake that would later have him working very hard to earn Shiloh’s trust.
This book wrecked me. It was heartbreaking in that I could feel Shiloh’s frustration as fate seemed to be conspiring against her. She had nearly given up on anything good ever happening in her life. She faced blow after blow and still worked so tirelessly to provide better for her baby. So when Drake came back into her life and wanted a relationship it really was nearly impossible for her to put aside her pride and accept his help. For his part Drake was actually a good guy which in the beginning it didn’t look that way. He was relentless in trying to do right by Shiloh and the baby.
I loved this story. The writing was perfect as the author unveiled a believable relationship that began in lust but then gutted my emotions as the she provided a window seat to watching this couple slowly take that fall into love. I will be recommending this one to all of my friends.
