Forget all those other accidental pregnancy romances you might have read.
Daisy and Carter don't have a one-night stand...because it's thirty minutes in a back room at a wedding reception. And Carter isn't a bad boy baby-daddy...except for the motorcycle, tattoos, and attitude. Daisy doesn't have the typical issues with her pregnancy...if you don't count the morning sickness, food cravings, and occasional horniness. And Carter doesn't hang around all the time, wanting both her and the baby...until he falls in love.
But they definitely don't become a happy family...right away.
Daisy has always been a good girl. She's never done anything wild or spontaneous until she has a little too much to drink at a wedding and has a fling with a sexy stranger. She thought they were careful, but accidents happen. And now she's going to have the baby of a man she barely knows.
Carter is her opposite in every way and completely the wrong man for her. They can still work out a reasonable arrangement regarding the baby. But the more time she spends with him, the less reasonable she feels. And he's acting all possessive and protective, so it gets harder and harder to convince herself that he's just the father of her baby.
She wants him to be so much more.
So, here's the thing about this book. I did not like the heroine! Like, at all! Daisy may be shy and introverted but she's also a stuck up prig who thought Carter was good enough to get her freak on with at the wedding of mutual friends, but then spent the rest of the book trying to change or hide him.
And on the other side of the spectrum is Carter. He's a mechanic, so he's got grease under his nails, he's got tats and from the story, he's a little unkept and evidently muscle-y. Um, not a match to the cover At All! And while that usually doesn't bother me...if someone has blue eyes instead of brown, the dog breed isn't the same, etc...it was weird in this case. Cover boy looks more like what Daisy WANTS Carter to look like, not the way he's written. Carter is by no means flawless; he does cut and run a few times. But it seemed to me he was trying to make a tense situation better. He's willing to put up with Daisy's attitude and is just trying to be a dad to his unborn child. I really admired that.
I'll admit, by the end of the book, I didn't want to hurt Daisy, as much. But while I begrudgingly thawed my own attitude about her a bit, i still cannot say I liked her. She's not someone I could ever envision myself being friends with. And maybe that's where the problem comes from. When I read a really good book and love the characters, the become friends to me. That part was missing in Complicating.
I did read the first two books and enjoyed them, but this fell flat for me. I love both Samantha Chase and Noelle Adams and have read most and loved their solo reads. I'm chalking this one up to a difference of opinion.
A quickie … to a baby!
A quickie turns into forever! I enjoyed the story line, but I had a really hard time liking Daisy. Carter was a good guy right from the start, and I didn't like the way she was constantly being wishy washy and jerking him around. Quick and easy read!
Daisy is a straight and narrow librarian. She's always been a good girl and done what was expected of her, but one fun-filled night at a wedding reception, a quickie in a backroom and all of a sudden she's pregnant by a man she hardly knows!
Carter is a good guy. He might ride a motorcycle, have longer hair and tattoos and look dangerous, but he's nice, settled and kind-hearted. He's all in and ready to help and be supportive when he learns they are going to have a baby, but he can only do what Daisy will allow him to do. Can he convince her that he might be different, but he can still be a good dad ... and more?
Sweet & Charming!
Completely Lovable! A Sweet and Charming, opposites attract romance, that brings all the feels. This was a charming, fast paced read that has a lot of heart and a perfect amount of heat.
