Two brothers. One impossible choice
From the moment her suspicions are confirmed, Lily knows she’s screwed. What the hell is a nineteen year old with no future going to do with a baby? She can barely take care of herself. She needs help.
In walks Sloan McClain, the only man Lily has ever truly wanted — and the brother of the boy whose baby she’s carrying. While Lily expects a great number of outcomes when she tells Sloan her news, him proposing marriage and asking her to keep the baby is not one of them, especially not when she has every intention of giving the baby a better future by giving it the home she can’t.
Having spent the majority of his life protecting his brother from the bone-breaking fists of their father, Sloan is no stranger to hardship, loss and abandonment. He has learned long ago never to rely on anyone to take care of what was his, and that baby is his. He isn’t about to let Lily give away his family, nor can he allow that child to destroy the future he has built for Cole. His only option: marry the mother and claim the baby as his.
But no secret ever stays hidden forever.
I received this book to give an honest review.
It will not be out until December 24 of this year so get ready to get your hands on this book.
This author I know I may have said it before but she has a way to draw you into the story and keep you there. We have three people who have known each other their whole life, and their lives become entwined in more than just friendship. Lily is your normal girl she is so happy, loves life and loves her best friend Cole but madly in love with his brother Sloan and now she is pregnant.
Cole is your average guy. He is a sweetheart, loves his best friend Lily, his older brother has taken care of him since their mother passed away. He is now making something of himself instead of staying in the small town he grew up in.
Sloan! What can you say about a guy who has this name? It is just dripping with badness! Sloan has had a hard life. His father was a drunk and liked to try to take it out on his kids but Sloan always made sure it was him and not Cole. Cole was his little brother and it was up to Sloan to make sure he got the hell out of the town and left this life behind.
All of that changes with the news that Lily is pregnant. The town likes to gossip and to keep Cole out of the cross hairs Sloan makes the most heart wrenching decision any man can make. He decides to raise this baby as his own even though he knows it is his brothers child. We get drama, love, a whole lot of sex, and like the blurb says no secret can stay hidden forever.
I fell in love with Sloan! He was the bad boy turned good and it was all because of Lily.
The ending made my heart go awwww! How sweet. I have to leave this review here because if not I will be giving so much away and I don't want to do that. My advice if you love the love stories, bad boys turning good and so much more that makes a great story get your copy.
Will have the links for Amazon when the book is out!!!
