Heidi: There’s an older book exactly like that by Judith McNaught. One of my FAVORITES! I will try to find. No I want to reread it

Letitia: Secret Maneuvers (Ex Ops Series Book 1) by Jessie lane. I read it last year but it has stuck in my mind as an awesome book

Kandace: The Sweet Gum Tree <— and TK Rapp agrees! “I LOVE this one!!”

Can I also suggest my first novel, GOOD INTENTIONS? Thanks!

What is the book where he comes back after his best friend from high school is killed and he finds out he has a son. He was a football player but decided to be in a band. She tried to contact him but the manager wouldn’t give him the messages? It was a series. Sorry if you already mentioned it. I am drawing a huge blank.

Misty August 5, 2015 at 8:17 PM

Nameless by Claire Kent. It’s a really good one!

Linda August 5, 2015 at 8:42 PM

Reed’s Reckoning by Ahren Sanders is a great read!! Loved it and I’m loving this category!!

Jen, I think your thinking of Forever my Girl. Grrr. Did. Not. Like. The. Heroine.

I like the accidental pregnancy, but can be difficult. I mean it has to be a very good reason to keep someone in the dark about their child. That’s pretty huge and unfair to child and father. If a father we are to like. If they don’t have a name or think the person is deceased or it somehow life or death. Or if it is found out soon.
SEP has one, not my favorite, blanking on name. Kleypas has two accidentals but the father finds out during the pregnancy.
And Craving Constellations (?).

Bev, remember she did try to tell him….lots of times….she finally called the record label that Liam signed with & that b**ch whose father was President of the record label never told him. After he found out about his son & confronted Josie about it, she told him she talked to someone from his record label after she couldn’t get in touch with him directly.

Lauren August 6, 2015 at 7:41 AM

Yeah, in Whitney, My Love he didn’t think the baby was his but only for a few weeks. He figured it out pretty quick.

bev August 6, 2015 at 9:24 AM

Lauren, if it’s the book I’m thinking of it is the scene when she is jealous of the time he is spending with her bf. Which ok, we all have unreasonable feelings. But she made a comment to her bf about it and at a horrible time to. Grief is 100x more real & devastating than jealousy and it’s suppose to be her bf. That one little scene just totally changed me on her character.

bev August 6, 2015 at 9:29 AM

Debbie, wow!
Is One Night with a hero the Laura Kaye one? Think I read that one. He knows though, just doesnt respond, um, well, I think. *sigh* hate my bad book memory.

Debbie August 6, 2015 at 9:35 AM

Yes, Laura Kaye….I inadvertently pulled all books with babies in them. Lol. This is why I try not to post late at night.

bev August 6, 2015 at 9:45 AM

Debbie, makes me happy, lol. I like the uh-oh books, sometimes more. Again only in books, lol.

Looking for a book about a couple who got separated because the guy thought he was impotent and couldn’t give her a child. They got divorced. The guy became rich (he was a former construction worker) and they met again at a company he bought where she was working at. He didn’t know that his wife got pregnant and had a child with him. she forgot the names of the characters :’( only remember the plot. Things that she recall: The guy stayed at the house that they picked out together, they had a son who wants a dog, the mother was constantly struggling to provide for her son, the guy thought that her son wasn’t his and insists that the guy who got her pregnant take up his

This is a series about three brothers and their cousins, there’s like 11 books in the series and it may seem repetitive because of the many number of books there is but if you are like me and need to come back down after reading a strong angst book and looking for short and sweet, not too much drama, then this is it. Anyway, all of these books could be read as a standalone, but the second book in the series has a similar plot to this subject, The Billionaire’s Dance by Melody Anne.

Jake’s Bride by Karen Rose Smith…Loooved this one!
