This is the second week that we have a Lilly Holden story showing up on my humble blog. We have two more weeks of them, so I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am. Yeah, you may think that they aren’t my normal fare, and they aren’t, but they are nice candy for my brain, which I often need. Quick reads, guaranteed HEA, and main characters that end up head over heels in love? And oh yeah, sex scenes that steam up the page? Is there anything better when you need something to relax your brain?
So, this is going to be a short blog, since The SEAL’s Secret Baby is pretty short. I read it in under an hour, I think. I was actually a smidgeon disappointed in how short it was. I would have loved to see more Deke and Sophie.
Two and a half years ago, Deke retired from the SEALs and buried his father, all in the same week. The night of the funeral, his long-time love and dream girl, Sophie, brings him a lasagna. They end up having one glorious night of passion. They both knew it was going to be only one night because Deke was headed out to Denver to work with his SEAL team in private security.
Fast forward 2.5 years and Deke has to go back to his hometown to sell his father’s house. He needs to go there and do some work to fix the house. The one consolation he has is that Sophie’s parents, who lived across the street, had sold their house and moved, meaning he will be able to avoid Sophie since no one in the family has talked to him since that night. What Deke doesn’t know is that Sophie is the one who bought the house, and that’s not the only surprise that Sophie is hiding.
OK, our paths are diverging in the woods here. Like I said, I enjoyed the story, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a nice, straight-forward, guaranteed HEA. I am looking forward to the next 2, since they deal with the rest of the SEAL team. Actually, I’m not even going to have a spoiler section. I do love Deke and his protectiveness over what’s his. I’m still going to post a picture of a cute baby.
