After a year of partying, Sam decides to buckle down and focus on college. Things are going great until a one-night stand leaves her pregnant and alone. Raising a child while going to school isn't easy, but Sam is determined to be strong for her daughter. She doesn't have time for guys or relationships, and takes great care to protect her child and her heart.
Judd doesn't fit the mold of a college ballplayer. His long hair and tattoos may fit the life he's created for himself, but baseball is the one thing he takes seriously. When he meets Sam, he's immediately drawn to her curves and refusal to put up with his crap. When Judd learns the truth, can he handle the responsibility that comes with loving a single mother? Sam yearns for the fire that Judd fuels in her, but her child's needs have to come first. Can two people at different stages in their life find a way to make a life together?
I really enjoyed this book about a young college age girl (Sam) who slept with the wrong boy and got pregnant. This boy Tucker when she told him she was pregnant not only didn't want the baby, but went so far to say "Don't even put my name on the birth certificate!". Now Sam is alone with a baby girl names Carrie (her little Care Bear) and trying to make ends meet with class and work.
One day Same met another boy & kept her little girl a secret from him. When Sam did introduce Judd to her daughter, Judd while surprised, really liked Carrie. Carrie in her little 2 year old voice calls him Dud (lolol). How cute is that?
A sweet romantic story about these people and the daily trials they go thru. The best part is the ending. I loved the ending! Another notable part is when Judd meets Carrie's real father by accident... You have to read the book to see where this goes!!!
The author, Bethany Lopez did a great job at capturing my interest and keeping it. The narrator, Bailey Varness did a fantastic job delivering this story to us with all her multiple voices - authentic and entertaining - very believable!

This is my first Bethany Lopez book and I am not disappointed. She portrays her characters and storyline very realistic, which is reallly a breath of fresh air, and the "sex scenes" are not highly graphic and are also realistic in nature. This book proves that not all books have to have "hot, erotic, fantasy" sex and can have realistic, short hot sex scenes that give just enough "bang" for your buck and is really just a little extra icing on the cake for this hopeful outlook on the life of the characters involved. What a sweet romantic. The ending made me *sigh* with happiness.
I liked the story line but thought the characters could use a little more developing. The narrator was boring and read the book with no feeling/emotion.
