Mistakes were made, okay?
The moment I laid eyes on Kyle Kingston I knew he was a mistake. A satisfying, toe curling, hair pulling, best night of my life mistake, but a mistake all the same. I didn’t yet know his name, or who he was, but I knew he was a bad idea.
I take comfort in that, because it means my instincts are still good. Too late, but it’s something.
Because, FYI, I’m pregnant
… and did I mention my baby daddy is both heir to a retail empire and impossible to get ahold of?
I do what any girl would. I break into his Grandfather’s retirement gala by telling the prissy gatekeeper Kyle’s my fiancé. It was a halfway decent plan at the time, trust me.
But it blows up in my face, disastrously so. You see, Kyle Kingston is all about representing the family values his family’s retail empire was founded on. At least in public. In private- well I’ll tell you about that later.
He proposes – a marriage of convenience.
Convenient for everyone but me, because while I’m falling in love with my convenient husband, he’s keeping a billion-dollar secret. From me.
A credit card.
With my name on it.
“What is this?” I fan the card in front of him, pinched between my fingers. “Are we doing a Daddy thing now? Like, ‘call me Daddy,’ instead of baby daddy? Because I’m not into that. And that’s really something you should talk about beforehand.”
“What?” Kyle looks confused about my outburst, then he looks pissed off. “No, don’t call me Daddy. For fuck’s sake, Daisy. It’s for expenses. For the baby,” he adds, before I can interrupt. “You mentioned shopping the other day and I want to pay for whatever the baby needs. If that’s okay with you.” He says that part sarcastically, as if I’m being ridiculous.
“Oh.” Well, sure, that makes more sense. Did I mention that I’m cranky? “I guess. I don’t know. Maybe we could split the expenses?”
“We could.” He nods. “But it’s hardly an even split. I can’t help you gestate. I can’t help you breastfeed. I’m kinda behind the eight-ball here in terms of doing my share, so helping financially seems like the least I can do.”
“Hmm.” He’s not totally wrong. He should be in charge of breastfeeding, but biology means I’m responsible for everything so I guess I can use his card to buy a pink astronaut cat blanket for Tubbs. “They do need a lot of stuff,” I agree, thinking about that kid on the plane and the gate-checked stroller and the diaper bag and Colechester the stuffed kitten. “Hey, do you know anyone who can implant a tracking device?” I had the worst nightmare last night that I lost the baby’s favorite stuffed thing. There’s got to be a way to ensure that never happens, right?
“A microchip only works if you scan it. Anything with GPS tracking would require a cellular receiver and a battery so it’s not really ethical. Or possible, even.”
“Oh, my God, you weirdo, I wasn’t talking about for the baby. I was talking about their teddy bear. Or stuffed dog. Or whatever their favorite stuffed thing is that we can never ever lose.”
“Right. That’s what I meant too.” He tugs on his ear and I don’t think that’s what he meant at all, but I’m mollified that it’s not technologically possible to embed a GPS tracker so I drop it. I’ve got other things on my mind right now.
My ARC Review:
Another fantastic read by Jana, this is centered around Daisy, Violet’s twin sister from Sure Thing, which ideally needs to be read before this so you understand what is going on, but if rom-com, swoons, crazy banter and monologuing is your thing then this is not to be missed!
Daisy and Violet may be twins, but their personalities are totally different – where Violet is more careful, cautious and a planner, Daisy is out there in your face, no filter, sassy and funny as hell. Daisy was on a special diet that involves the male gender, staying away from them, until she met Kyle Kingston and ended up having a one night stand, but got more than she bargained for, and ends up pregnant by him. She has no means of contacting him to let him know, which is only fair of course, and ends up stalking him and gate crashing a party, saying she’s his fiance and meeting the family just to get to talk to him! She wants nothing from him, just to let him know of his impending fatherhood, she may hate him a little but her body remembers Kyle and reacts accordingly whenever he is around.
Kyle was blown away by his one night with Daisy, but didn’t get any contact details from her and didn’t expect to see her again, let alone bump into her gate crashing his grandfather’s party posing as his fiance! But Kyle takes it all in his stride, even the impending fatherhood news and sets about doing the right thing by Daisy, much to her chagrin.
I loved Kyle, he was down to earth, sensible, romantic and fun loving. He was determined to not let Daisy go again now he had her again, her sassy and quirky nature really got to him. They are perfect together, their chemistry oozes off the pages and their banter was hilarious. Entertaining from start to finish, I loved watching their relationship develop into something so very real. Highly recommended.
