Forget all those other accidental pregnancy romances you might have read.

Daisy and Carter don’t have a one-night stand…because it’s thirty minutes in a back room at a wedding reception. And Carter isn’t a bad boy baby-daddy…except for the motorcycle, tattoos, and attitude. Daisy doesn’t have the typical issues with her pregnancy…if you don’t count the morning sickness, food cravings, and occasional horniness. And Carter doesn’t hang around all the time, wanting both her and the baby…until he falls in love.

But they definitely don’t become a happy family…right away.

Daisy has always been a good girl. She’s never done anything wild or spontaneous until she has a little too much to drink at a wedding and has a fling with a sexy stranger. She thought they were careful, but accidents happen. And now she’s going to have the baby of a man she barely knows.

Carter is her opposite in every way and completely the wrong man for her. They can still work out a reasonable arrangement regarding the baby. But the more time she spends with him, the less reasonable she feels. And he’s acting all possessive and protective, so it gets harder and harder to convince herself that he’s just the father of her baby.

She wants him to be so much more.



My Rating:



Favorite Quotes:


You could be a total coward and selfish ass and not tell him at all. Then later you’d feel guilty about it— you know you would— and you’d have to spring a surprise baby on him, complete with his dark hair and little baby tattoos. Imagine how he’d blow his stack then.


How sad that he had to resort to bribery by ice cream to convince a woman to talk to him.


I swear to you if I had that book here right now I would beat you with it! And I love books! All books! But you have ruined that particular book for me!


He was such a contradiction, an intriguing mix of toughness and sweetness.


My Review:


Complicating was a quick and light read. I adored the main character of Carter, although I felt an extremely strong compulsion to administer a couple of good whacks to the back of Daisy’s uptight and judgmental head with my Kindle. Daisy was rude, abrupt, and dismissive to the sweet and thoughtful Carter. Who would have thought that the motherless biker would have better manners than the church going librarian… but there you have it.   Thankfully she came around before she had to be maimed. Seriously!   Although, having been raised in a small and inbred rural community, her judgmental behavior did have context. I loved the visual of a rough around the edges biker buying onesies.

About the Authorsamantha Chase

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan’s Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40’s to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.

When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina

    This looks something that should be added to my guilty pleasure shelf. It does have a ring to it.

    I so didn’t want to read this after the first line, but as I read your review I found myself smiling over this book. I mean grinning ear to ear. I am going to be reading a romance novel it appears. #IHateYouOfficially 😉

      LOL – Buckle up Cassie 😉 I read a lot of women’s fiction and what my elderly Bible Banger mother calls “smut!”

    Wonderful review. Sadly this does not sound like my type of book though.

    Ha! This makes me think of “What would you do do a Klondike bar” This sounds good.
