review || HIS LULLABY BABY by Airicka Phoenix

His Lullaby Baby - Amazon
Airicka Phoenix | October 19, 2015 | Contemporary Romance
The Baby Saga, book 5


Nothing ever happens by accident.

Ex-combat search and rescue officer Toby McClain had seen all aspects of humanity in his ten years of service until friendly fire took him out of action. But bitterness was something Toby could never do. He was alive. He had his family and, after being ambushed by a door, he had his eyes on the sexy new innkeeper.

Adelaide Nixon had felt the burn of love once already. It was a mistake that cost her six years of her life. It was a punishment she never wanted to feel again, especially when there were two little people who depended on her to keep them safe. The last thing she wanted or needed was the attention of a guy whose family kept the gossip mills turning.

But no secret ever stays hidden in a place like Willow Creek. Even as Toby breaks through Addy’s walls, a new threat comes to town, leaving her no choice but to put more than her heart in Toby’s hands and trust him not to destroy her.

I had an opportunity to read a review copy of the title, but Impatient Imogene over here needed to buy it. Couldn't wait. Because while I loved the idea of the parents having books and then their kids having books, it was Damon's interactions with kid brother, Toby, that really had my heart going, and if there was one book I was dying to read, it was Toby's.

And pairing Toby with a single mom of not one, but two kiddos? Gosh, I loved this book.

Toby came home from war and he has some battle scars, internal and external. He does a really good job of staying positive and keeping his hurts to himself, though. He first meets Addy when she runs him down with a door -- and then when he's given nieces-and-nephews-to-riding-lessons duty, he encounters her again. Toby is definitely his brother's brother; signing up for riding lessons meant for children had me chuckling. Addy's son? Not so much (chuckling).

I loved Addy and I loved her kids -- Hanna was a doll. I loved that Sean knew some of the McClain's, and watching him fall into the family dynamics was great. I loved how accepting they ended up being.

I'm very sad to see this series end. It was greatly written and the characters all felt extremely real. Kudos, Airicka, for a series well done. I can't wait to see what else you bring forward!
