I really enjoyed “Exclusively Yours” the 1st book in the series. The author is a good writer and really keeps my interest. This is book 2. The beginning was good but it soon turned into a disappointment. Here’s what happens. Guy and girl meet, are drawn to each other, have sex, condom breaks, she’s pregnant. She informs him of the pregnancy but does not want a relationship. He does everything right. He helps her financially and in every other way. He likes her, desires her, wants to spend time with her, and wants sex. He’s smart, kind, gorgeous, sexy, makes a good living - things most women like. She likes him and desires sex but she says NO. She refuses to have a romantic relationship with him because she is afraid she might be hurt in the future if he leaves her. I hate that reason. So for the whole book she keeps them apart - even though they want each other. And he is faithful to her. He does not have sex with anyone else. Finally for a happy ending she changes her mind. That is not a story for me. (This is a romance story so I don’t think this is a spoiler.)
An example of uninteresting conflict: After the baby is born the grandmother wants to take a picture of Beth (mom), Kevin (dad), and the baby. But Beth doesn’t want to and starts to argue “What if someday...”
I enjoyed several scenes about the Kowalski family. This book might appeal to readers who want to read about being pregnant and life with a baby during the first several months.
