A Texas-size pregnancy surprise!
Cecelia Morgan needs to take her business to the next level, and decorating the new luxury resort in Royal, Texas, is just the ticket. But at the meeting to pitch her designs, she comes face-to-face with Deacon Chase, her former flame from the wrong side of the tracks who grew up to be a billionaire hotelier. Turns out he’s the silent partner in this project. Their chemistry is off the charts. Too bad she’s spoken for.
But when the blackmailer terrorizing the Texas Cattleman’s Club targets Cecelia, revealing a past secret that ruins her present engagement, she turns to Deacon for comfort…only to soon be expecting!
*Texas Cattleman’s Club: Blackmail (Book 4)
Andrea Laurence has a way with words. She is known for her intense drama, passionate heroes and compelling storylines. However, I cannot say Expecting the Billionaire’s Baby has all of those qualities. Something is missing in this book but I can’t quite put my finger on it. But let it be noted that the book is not all that infuriating. There are parts of it that I found compelling and engaging. For instance:
- The character behind the Maverick moniker intrigued me from the start.
- Cecelia’s ex-fiancé. I can’t remember his name right off the bat, but his attitude towards Cecelia stuck in my head. He is a rich, spoiled brat and I hated him for his actions towards her. I hope he finds a woman who marries him for his money.
- The sensual passion shared between Cecelia and Deacon made up for all the flaws in the story. Their passion is slow burning from the start and once it fully ignites…wow!
- The writing is sharp and expressive.
Overall, Expecting the Billionaire’s Baby is a good reunion story. However, I really wished it had wowed me as much as Ms. Laurence’s previous books have in the past. Regardless, I still believe romance lovers would take away something from this book.
