Summary

A USA Today best seller! 

What's worse than having Rider Kingston, the star quarterback, give you the big brushoff because he doesn't want to get serious? You'd probably think living across the street from him where you get a firsthand view of his hookups, right?

That's what I thought. Until someone drops off a baby with a note pinned to her blanket that says one of those jocks - either Rider or one of his roommates - is the father. The problem? Baby mama doesn't mention which of these numbskulls is the sperm donor.

I wouldn't care about their paternity problems - not the slightest bit - except my brother lives there too. Which means that adorable squawking bundle might be my niece, and there's no way I'm leaving her unattended with those bumbling football players.

They need my help, even if they don't know it yet. Once we solve this dilemma and figure out who's the daddy, I'm out.

I'll just ignore Rider and those soul-searing looks he gives me every time I reach for the baby. He broke my heart three years ago. He won't get a second chance.

Exceptional!

This book was so amazing, I can’t emphasize it enough! The perfect mix of sexy, sweet, suspense and angst. Gabby and Rider had electric chemistry and were simply made for each other. And…I LOVE babies…so adding little Poppy to the mix made it even better. The bonus scene was swoon-worthy. Excellent narration. Don’t miss this one!!

Soooo Good!!!!

I loved this book! I’ve had it in my favorites for months and just now listened to it. The only disappointment I have is that I didn’t listen to it sooner. Such a beautiful love story. Rider and Gabby were adorable. I loved all the other characters too. I’m really hoping we will get to read books about the others. The epilogue was on point. Everything was wrapped up lovely. The narrators did a great job!!!

Good Story but a little hard to listen to at times

Overall I really enjoyed the story, it's a fun one and I've yet to read something from Lex Martin I didn't enjoy. I did struggle a bit with the male narrator, Alexander Cendese, all of the female voices were over the top annoying and cringy and the guys all sounded like Bill and Ted.... this could have been direction given or personal flare I have no clue but it was not my favorite. Vanessa Edwin did a fantastic job narrating the female POV and made up the difference.

Over dramatized

So the story started out good it was cute and entertaining until chapter 62 then it just turned childish Gabby is very immature and let’s self doubt determine her actions and Rider was immature at times to but he was also responding to Gabby and how she treated him other than that the story was ok but only good for one read.

Very good story!

I had read previous work from Lex Martin, so I knew I was likely to enjoy this book. I was not disappointed, the story was very engaging, and I fell so hard for sweet Poppy. Highly highly recommend the story.

Loved the story

Loved Rider and Gabby and their relationship was so sweet. Great cast of supporting characters. Looking forward to more of this series.

Narration: 3.5
Female narrator very good.
Male narrator male voice sounded too agitated and his female voices unpleasant - hard to relax and enjoy Rider's chapters.

Not my favorite from Lex Martin

This one didn’t work for me. It’s supposed to be a romcom, but the moments intended to be funny were flat or silly, and there is too much serious drama (both serious situations and extreme drama) for it to really work. The narrator’s natural voices were great, bu Mt for both of them, their “extra voices” were awful.

loved it

I was hoping this was a series so I could see how the rest of the guys did plus the roommate. But I still loved it and couldn't stop listening to it.

Okay

Needed a better male vocal; some of the writing too sophorific and predictable. Could have been better.

wowza What a Story

What would you do if they guy you crushed on lived across the street and was a total man whore. You would have Gabby's problem then. This book grabs you from the first word and takes you on a ride you never want to get off of. Then narration adds that something special to the story. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
