Average score: 3/5

Best Line: “I’m still your Erik. I’ll always be your Erik. No matter what.

Worst Line: “Would it bother you if I hung out a lot with another girl?”

Personal Review:

I have realised now, after reading tons of secret-baby romances, that I find it reprehensible that a heroine would rather be sexually satisfied BEFORE telling the hero that he is the father

The story would have been a solid 4 star but the rating reduced because she withheld the knowledge of his child from him and instead was planning and looking forward to having sex with him again

Random Ramblings

  • That crabs line was funny
  • I loved how her naiveté made him stumble in the beginning but hated how he used it to manipulate her
  • The ‘social media speak’ in her journal didn’t make sense considering her background
  • I was disappointed in her for not telling him when they reunited
  • Erik was a great hero
  • Wait! What? You can’t end like that…what was the secret?!!
