Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam ~ Surprise, Baby! ~ Release Blitz / Teasers / ARC Review / Giveaway


Title: Surprise, Baby!
Standalone Companion Novel to All About the D
Authors: Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Adult Contemporary
Release Date: March 12, 2019


There’s a fine line between lust and hate.

I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.

His mouth is.

And the stupid things that come out of it.

But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me…

Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.

And it doesn’t involve talking.

I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.

Except he left me a little keepsake.

And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.

My ARC Review:

I really loved All About the D, so couldn’t wait to read this one!! I was not disappointed, it is fabulous – it has a bit of everything in there, all rolled into one making a fun, romantic, sweet, heart warming and emotional read.

Kendall is a workaholic and runs her own PR business with her male best friend, she is a strong, independent, successful woman who has put her ideas of a family life on a back-burner in order to get her business running successfully.

Drew is a reformed playboy / party animal – drink, women and food in abundance were his, until a a life threatening problem made him put his life in perspective and get himself in order. He stopped the partying and drinking, got fit and healthy and changed his lifestyle. But his reputation precedes him, he was always in the limelight for misbehaving, even though now he has changed his ways.

Kendall and Drew have mutual best friends, so they have known each other a while and always push each others buttons and really do not get on well with each other. But they both get an invite to their friends’ cabin for a weekend but end up snowed in by themselves for the whole weekend, just the two of them!

I loved Drew and his cute, funny and sexy ways – he really does try hard to show Kendall he has changed. She struggles to see Drew in a different light at first, tentatively they become friends before making the leap to lovers. Their chemistry and antics in the cabin were funny and explosive, and fate took a helping hand in their life that weekend!

Can Drew and Kendall step up to the plate and deal with what life is about to throw at them after spending just a weekend together?

A great read, I really enjoyed this, watching this couple through their ups and downs! Highly recommended reading.

Leslie McAdam
Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avirectreader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement.

Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
