Publisher's Summary

He may be a player, but this stud's not shooting blanks.

Nick

I'm nobody's baby daddy. I don't care how many stunning women throw themselves at me, looking to turn one hot night into an 18-year paycheck. I've got way too much on the line to throw it away for one night of pleasure.

Ball is life, and basketball is my first priority. I've got a championship to win.

But when I see that familiar face shaking her pom-poms on the sidelines, I'm transported back to childhood, back to the days before a fiery plane crash ripped us apart, forcing us to grow up overnight.

Those were the days when Eden Evans stole my heart. This time, I might be ready to give it right back to her.

Eden

I have no interest in a man who comes with groupies. With a rock legend for a father, I've seen the toll fame takes on a marriage. The last thing I need is a guy with more Twitter followers than Justin Bieber.

So when Nick Barnes dribbles his way back into my life, my heart and head go into battle. I can't fight my desire for the sexy baller with his eight-pack abs and panty-dropping charm.

And when that little stick shows an unmistakable plus sign, suddenly everything is on the line.

With a secret baby on the way, will Nick realize that having the home court advantage is what he's wanted all along?

This is a standalone romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers. Light on basketball and heavy on steamy romance, this is the first book featuring members of the Barnes family.

    "Fantastic Audiobook"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook, the story was fantastic, well written and very enjoyable. The narrators are great, it is in dual point of view, and I loved having both a male and female narrator.

    The quality is clear, their voices were perfect for the story and I could listen to their voices all day long

    I highly recommend this audiobook, great story with great narration five stars well deserved

    "A sexy sports romance that scores big!"
    If you could sum up The Baller's Secret Baby: A Sports Romance in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, heartwarming and engaging


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nick Barnes of course! He is so sweet and mouthwateringly sexy and come on... the dude is 6'7, a star basketball player, and has the body of an Adonis! I also adored how chivalrous and caring he was with Eden. She was not just another notch on the belt for him...but he really had deep seated feelings for her stemming from their childhood. And I also liked how devoted he was to his eccentric family!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I adored the scene where they had their first date, which led to baby making sex and then the heartmelting pillowtalk afterwards!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not an extreme reaction...just a fun, engaging listen that held my attention throughout. I definitely laughed at times...especially with the scenes with Nick's mom Lucille!


    Any additional comments?

    BALLER'S SECRET BABY is a heartfelt childhood best friends second chance romance that takes a decidedly unexpected turn! This book gave me warm fuzzy feels, delicious tingles and heart palpitations throughout! The sex was oh so steamy and Normandie Alleman once again penned a lively, lovable romance with engaging characters that SCORED bigtime! The narration was AMAZING as well. This was my first listen with both narrators and Aiden Snow in particular blew me away! From the moment I heard his deep, rich, rumbly baritone I was enraptured! His delivery of Nick was spot on, he emoted brilliantly and just was PURE PERFECTION! And I also thought that Alicyn Aimes was fantastic as Eden as well. I truly relished every single moment of this audiobook! Look forward to listening to more audiobooks from these mega talented narrators!

    "Perfect! From the story to the narrators"

    One of the best I've listened so far. Amazing storyline and the narrators added the perfect voices for Nick and Eden. Got lost in the story about love, second chances and friendship to last a lifetime. Can't wait to get to know the rest of the Barnes family! LOVED it!

    "Loved this Friends to Lovers Romance!"

    I absolutely adored this fun and sexy romance! It had it all, smart, sexy characters, intriguing story, steamy passion, and wonderful narrators. Nick and Eden were best friends growing up until their worlds were ripped apart when their fathers died suddenly. Eden's mother moved them away and Nick and Eden lost touch. Now years later they are both successful, have their own money, and finally live in the same city. As they get closer and their chemistry ignites, they are manipulated again and torn apart. When Eden finds out she is pregnant, she can't bring herself to tell Nick, not wanting to have him stay out of obligation. This is a fast paced story with several twists and turns that kept me engaged from start to finish. The narrators, Aiden Snow and Alicyn Aimes, were amazing. Their intonation was perfect and they really bring the characters to life. I definitely recommend this audiobook.
