His Lullaby Baby by Airicka Phoenix
Series: The Baby Saga #5
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Nothing ever happens by accident.
Ex-combat search and rescue officer Toby McClain had seen all aspects of humanity in his ten years of service until friendly fire took him out of action. But bitterness was something Toby could never do. He was alive. He had his family and, after being ambushed by a door, he had his eyes on the sexy new innkeeper.
Adelaide Nixon had felt the burn of love once already. It was a mistake that cost her six years of her life. It was a punishment she never wanted to feel again, especially when there were two little people who depended on her to keep them safe. The last thing she wanted or needed was the attention of a guy whose family kept the gossip mills turning.
But no secret ever stays hidden in a place like Willow Creek. Even as Toby breaks through Addy’s walls, a new threat comes to town, leaving her no choice but to put more than her heart in Toby’s hands and trust him not to destroy her.
Toby McClain is home after a friendly fire injury has forced him to retire. Although he is not bitter about it he would of course much rather be working. Then he gets hit, literally, by the new innkeeper and things change. Adelaide had a relationship that was less than desirable so she has sworn off men. Just when Toby breaks through to Addy her past comes back to bite them in behind.
This was a very interesting read and the characters were well written. I enjoyed that all of the emotions possible were in this book including humor. The chemistry was off the charts and led to some very intense sex scenes. I was very pleasantly surprised and enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Toby was the perfect alpha male while Addy had a strength about her that you could feel coming right off the pages. Abby’s children were simply adorable as well.
