“This can’t seriously be happening.”
When a baby is dropped on Phil Erwin’s doorstep, he has three questions: Why’s it here? Where’d it come from? And how does he get rid of it? The English professor’s worked hard to distance himself from his trashy family, and he’s got enough going on without taking on his irresponsible sister’s problems. To make matters even worse, an airheaded student is there to witness the embarrassing event.
“If you need a babysitter, you know who to call.”
Jay Neeson has never seen his calm, contemptuous thesis supervisor thrown so far off-balance. Phil’s dazzling intelligence – not to mention his rough-hewn good looks – have always intimidated the masters candidate. Since Jay adores kids, he offers to nanny the chubby-cheeked little girl. Winning Phil’s approval is a potential bonus.
“Nobody wants you, kid. Nobody.”
Phil’s sense of duty means he’s stuck with the infant for the moment. As he learns to change diapers and heat up formula, he also begins to appreciate Jay’s intelligence and caring. Forced to spend time more together, the two men realize they care for each other – and for Darlene. But as the three start to feel like a family, Phil and Jay’s custody comes into question.
With outsiders trying to take their baby away from them, will Phil and Jay be torn apart too? Or will they manage to give Darlene a loving home?
Baby Daddies is a 50,000 word steamy MM contemporary romance. This page turner has has no cliffhangers, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after.
Baby Daddies is the third book in the Neeson Boys series, which features Steven, Gavin and Jay Neeson. Each book can be read as a standalone story, but is more enjoyable when read as a full trilogy!
I admit I am a sucker for stories containing babies and taking care of them.
This book was one of those where the main character is burden with the care of a small child, a baby. The start of the story is really funny, also a bit unexpected.
The way the story developes from there is really interesting and I can’t help myself and swoon over Jay and baby Darlene. Two sweethearts, which have Gavin finally to admit.
I also adored the teacher-student relationship, therefore the tension was also build trough the age gap.
At the end both guys managed the unconventional relationship very well, Jay is offering Gavin to babysitt the small girl, who is actually Gavin’s niece. But being babysitter is not enough.
The mutual feelings are palpable, the exhaustion of Gavin several times really understandable therefore the support of Jay necessary and very welcome.
You feel with the character, you are happy with them and you squeel when they finally get together. :3
The story had a few parts which were a bit rushed therefore I can’t give total 5 stars, only 4.5 out of 5 stars.
