The Best Man’s Baby A Red River Series Book by Victoria James

Florist Claire Holbrook has always played by the rules her entire life, but breaks them to spend one night with sexy lone wolf Jake Manning, a man she’s adored since she was a teenager. Six weeks later, things get complicated when she discovers they created a bond that will last a lifetime

Jake has never played by the rules. Getting Minister Holbrook’s daughter pregnant wasn’t part of any life plan, but he won’t run from his responsibilities. He’ll step up and be the best man he can, even if he doesn’t have a clue where to begin. The more time he spends with Claire, though, the more he wants her, and the harder it is to get close, because that would mean sharing the one thing he hasn’t with anyone–the truth and his heart.

Claire Holbrook had been the middle of the sexy Manning brothers’ sandwich all through her best friends’ wedding to the third tasty Manning specimen but there was only one that she wanted to have a taste of. Jake Manning had always been the one she crushed on since she was a teen and to see him there in a tux was enough to send her reeling into fantasy land. Not that he had ever noticed her. Not that she would know what to do if he did.
Jake had wanted the sexy curvy Claire for a long time but he knew he would never be good enough for the Reverend Holbrook’s daughter so he could look but not touch. His bad boy reputation may or may not have been earned but the truth about himself was enough of a reminder that he had to keep hands off.
This was another emotional read. Claire’s unexpected pregnancy was revealed in one of the most hilarious methods I have ever read but the upheaval of their lives once the cat was out of the bag was pure romance! I loved how they both opened up their insecurities and scars from the past and let themselves heal thanks to the love that bloomed and grew between them. The blossoming of their love was fodder for a great read as they worked backwards from pregnancy to a wedding proposal to falling in love. Quite an exceptional read that brightened a gloomy stormy summer day.
