"What are you doing now that your team is out of the running for the Stanley Cup?"

I need to forget. I need an escape.
Only one person isn't falling for my reputation as the NHL's Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend's house. She didn't want to hear my reason--she only wanted to playfully give me a hard time.
Adalyn is bold, sassy--and the perfect escape.
She's everywhere. In town and in my dreams, and suddenly I need to spend every waking moment with her.
And I do, making this summer the best off-season I've ever had.
But in the midst of getting lost in Adalyn, what I don't expect is to get her pregnant.
And what I definitely don't expect is having to fight for her affection.


To be completely honest, I wasn't 100% pumped about Hayden's book. He was one of the most aloof, distant characters in Three Blind Dates, and while I knew he was getting over a certain somebody, I wondered if I would truly find a book about him all that interesting. 

The result? As per usual, my worrying was for nothing, because (surprise, surprise!) One Baby Daddy is by far my favorite book in the series. Don't get me wrong, I loved Three Blind Dates and I really enjoyed Two Wedding Crashers, but One Baby Daddy knocks both right out of the park. This book contains 3 Ss (a.k.a the "musts" in my romance reads): sweetness, a swoon factor, and sexyness. If Hayden and Adalyn's romance doesn't make you feel some kind of emotion, I'll be shocked. 

In Three Blind Dates we learned that Hayden had his heart broken prior to his arrival in LA; however, much of the details remained a secret. Luckily, One Baby Daddy not only shows Hayden and Adalyn's romance from the very start but also those moments in LA. 

I LOVED the way in which Meghan set this book up. It was so much fun to see Hayden and Adalyn fall in love. From the moment they run into each other in Racer's kitchen, I knew that they were going to become a favorite couple of mine. There was so much chemistry, so much sass (from Adalyn in particular!), so much oomph! I was hooked. 

It also didn't hurt that I adored Hayden and Adalyn to pieces. 

As it turns out, Hayden has quite the personality when he's not down in the dumps. He's sweet as well as sassy. He can dole the trash talking out just as well as he can take it. He's an amazing friend - his friendships with Racer and Calder brought so many smiles to my face, I couldn't get enough of them- as well as an amazing son - the story about his mother's cooking lessons? SO ADORABLE! - and as Adalyn finds out, he's an amazing boyfriend. Honestly, he may just be my favorite hero of the year, and that's a big honor considering how many romance books I read. 

Like Hayden, Adalyn can be sassy when she wants to be (a.k.a all the times she's with Hayden), and she's also fearless as well as fierce. As she shows in the book, she can stand on her own just fine, no matter the situation. I had so much respect for her, and it also didn't hurt that I found her personality to be hilarious. 

Just like Three Blind Dates and Two Wedding Crashers, the romance in this is HOT, HOT, HOT. I loved/hated the slow burn aspect to it, because while I loved the build-up, there were so many times I was internally screaming, Just kiss already!! Hayden and Adalyn's banter was also a highlight. They both knew how to dole out the trash talking at just the perfect/worst moment. I laughed out loud several times, especially during the dinner scene in New York. Besides the romance aspect, Meghan included storylines about their families, careers, and friends. I enjoyed being exposed to so many aspects of their lives, and I especially liked that they experienced the same ups and downs that any twenty something is facing (hectic work schedules, sudden career changes, family pressure, etc.) It made the book more realistic and heartwarming in my opinion. 

Overall, One Baby Daddy is by far my favorite book in the series. I can't tell y'all how much I didn't want it to end. The last 10 percent of this book crept up on me so fast! I kept thinking, how can that it be ending so soon?! 

If you've loved the previous books in the series, you're sure to love this one, and if you haven't read the previous books in the series but love a good slow burn romance, give it a try. These books stand alone quite well.

5 stars!! 

About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
