From national best-selling author M. Malone comes a tale about marriage, motherhood and the true meaning of family. Get caught up in the magic in the next installment of The Alexanders series.
Because in the Alexander family, if we love you then you're one of us.
A bargain. A baby. A billion things can go wrong.
Nicholas Alexander doesn't mind being called a playboy. His charm serves him well in business and a beautiful woman is always on his arm. Except the one he's in love with.
Raina Winters doesn't believe in love, so when she's dumped right before her wedding, she's more upset about losing what she really wants from marriage. A baby.
When Nick learns about Raina's dilemma, his first reaction is to leave her hanging like she left him after their steamy one-night stand. But he finally has something Raina needs, so he offers her a deal. He'll give her a baby if she gives him something he desires just as much.
Just two little words: I. Do.

Nick's apartment after Raina nearly bombs her press conference at Sweeties. Nick tells her that he'll give her the child, but she must marry. He tells her that he can't breathe because she consumes his every being. That one night of passion was enough for Nick to know that Raina was his soul-mate and no other woman will do. I loved how matter of fact he was about offering to be the father, all the while I knew at any moment he was going to reveal his true feelings. The anticipation of his revelation and how Raina was going to react was overwhelming.
I'm not done with the book, but I felt compelled to write the emotions evoked by Raina and Nick's passion. I found myself paralyzed by anticipation, waiting for Nick to tell Raina that he loved her. That, not only will he give her what she desperately wants, but that she had his heart to. I honestly felt like Raina at the time, imagining myself looking into his eyes. the author is brilliant and talented.
These romance novels are not helping my husband, at all.
Well, the story started out good but fell a bit flat, dull, and annoying. The hero and heroine were just hard to like together. Raina was just a bit too much. Her character was not very pleasing or likable to be honest. NIck was supposed to be a bad boy wild child of the Alexander brothers and was basically just so nice in trying to please Raina so much it was nauseating. I just wanted him to dump her and be a bad boy again. It was very hard to believe his past of a bad boy type.
He did everything he could possibly do to please her and it was never enough. UGH!
The chemistry between the two started out great but due to her attitude and his "I have to do more she deserves it" mind set, ruined this couple. There was a couple of sex scenes, they were okay, vague at best, not erotica so if your wondering if this series is erotic it is not.
The story line and plot had potential and had the main characters been written better, so would the story line and plot. There was a lot of blah blah blah nonsense throughout the book. There was a lot of dialogue, and since I like lots of dialogue I did enjoy that.
I am not sure if I can move on with this series. This story was such a struggle to get through.
As for the narration. It was very good. I really enjoy Eva Kaminsky's narration. I think she does a great job giving everyone their own distinct voice and she does the men's voices well too. I have noticed that she gets better and better with every narration. She has a very nice reading voice and reads with emotion.
I have seen in a couple of other reviews that the Alexander brothers are african american. I read/listened to these first two books and just now saw this information in a post.
I can tell you that these brothers being african american was is not at all written in the first two books. The only reference to anyone being african american is the one reference in this book that Raina is bi-racial, which I also did not know until that one brief reference. I found even more surprising since she is the twin sister to Ridley the heroine in the first book (I read that one and loved it btw). I would have never known that this is an inter-racial book by just reading it and the cover does not lead you to believe that either. So if you are looking for interracial book you really aren't going to get that in these books. I would think an author writing interracial books would put that in her books. Just sayin...
I've read this story myself and being able to hear it read by someone else was amazing.
Nick... He proved his undying love for Raina and his unborn child.
This was my first Eva Kaminsky audio.
This book made me laugh and cry throughout. Minx Malone writes these characters as if she is living them.
No, lets just say, if you had asked me what this story was about the day after listening to it, I would have drawn a blank. The ending was the worst part. It wasn't a bad story just not memorable and a little weak.
No...nothing spectacular about it. It had tons of potential but author disappointed, especially the ending!
I didn't haha
