Disappointmentville: Kingdoms & Crowns Series, Book 1 | #BookReview @jenhayward_

"Carrying the King's Pride" [Kingdoms & Crowns Series, Book 1] by Jennifer Hayward

Author's Book Description : A marriage for the monarch

One last New York night with Sofia Ramirez is all Prince Nikandros Constantinides allowed himself before returning to Akathinia, after a dreadful accident took his brother's life. But before the royal rebel is crowned, Nik discovers that he didn't leave Sofia behind alone!

In a baby's heartbeat, Nik turns Sofia's world upside down and whisks her away to his Mediterranean kingdom. Dissolving a politically perfect engagement is not what Nik—or his country—had in mind, but this proud prince will do whatever it takes to legitimize his new rule…with a wife and child!

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. On the night that Sofia decides to call it quits with Nik (Nikandros) .... she ends up pregnant and Nik's older brother dies, which in turn makes him next-in-line to become King. Then because of his father's health, he seems to become King (a role he was never supposed to have) over night. Though when he learns of Sofia's pregnancy, it feels as though life goes from bad to worse. Sofia wants/needs trust and love in her life for their relationship to work .... will Nik be able to give that to her?

I wish I could've liked this novel more, but I just couldn't. I struggled with it from the beginning, mostly because Sofia and Nik's relationship felt so forced. Then add in Nik's condescending ways and I can say for 75% of this novel I did not like the man. In addition, the plot's flow/mojo just was off or didn't feel right and lead me to believe that something else (like Nik being setup in a compromising way) was going to take place right up until the end and that never happened. 😕

Overall, this one wasn't for me and I don't feel comfortable recommending it. However, please check it out for yourself as it could be the book for you.

"You're a sure thing," he murmured. "Why would I be nice?"
Her mouth fell open. She was about to give him a knock across the head when she saw the sparkle in his eyes. "You are terrible."
"Sometimes you need to lighten up." He nuzzled her cheek, the stubble on his jaw razing her skin. "I think they're great." ~ within Chapter 10

Made the Grade: A Daddy for Baby Zoe? by Fiona Lowe | #BookReview @FionaLowe

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Paperback - Pages: 256; Kindle Edition - File Size: 511 KB | Expected Release Date: January 1, 2016 | Publisher: Harlequin : Medical Romances | Obtained: NetGalley

"A Daddy for Baby Zoe?" by Fiona Lowe

Author's Book Description : A baby to bind them

Weeks away from giving birth, Dr. Meredith Dennison finds herself with no husband and few funds. Retreating to Shearwater Island, she just wants to hide from the world…until she meets her gorgeous, caring neighbor, multimillionaire Raf Camilleri.

Meredith is the last woman Raf should fall for. He's no more ready for her and newborn baby Zoe than Meredith is for him! But they so need his support, and their tender pull makes it impossible for Raf to stay away…

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Meredith (M) thought she had everything planned out and after years of waiting for her husband, to be ready she is now pregnant and about to be a mother. Yet, life isn’t as easy as she wished especially when married to an extreme adventure-seeker. Then when she gets the unexpected news that her husband died in an avalanche while on Australia’s Mount Feathertop, to say she was shocked would be an understatement. Therefore, she retreats to her and her husband’s vacation home to try to work through her grief and it is there that she meets Rafael (Raf) her neighbor who is still struggling through he own personal turmoil. Over the course of them getting to know and help one another, Meredith gives birth to Zoe who changes both Raf and Meredith’s lives for the better. Will Zoe be able to turn them into a family too?

Wow. This novel is more realistic then I was hoping for, yet it worked. As it was very believable. While I am happy with Meredith’s personal standards and how much she truly loved her husband, in the same breath it annoyed be to no end because of how great a guy Raf was and how she kept on putting him at a distance. Especially after you hear about Raf’s backstory I was surprised by how obtuse Meredith seemed by her actions and why Raf clung onto their relationship more/faster than she expected. It was because of how Meredith handles everything that it made it hard for me to enjoy this novel as much as I’d have liked. On the flip side though, it was because of Meredith’s actions that this novel feels more real and believable.

I recommend this to those looking for believable yet fictional contemporary “new parenthood” romance.

Ms. Lowe's Pinterest Board for A DADDY FOR BABY ZOE?

Book Teaser(s) :
'A Thousand and One Baby Names,' he said with a grin. 'This has to be the only occasion Dad's hoarder tendencies have come in handy.'
He sat back down against the bed end and opened the age-yellowed pages. 'Okay. Abby, Acacia, Ada, Adelaide, Africa, Aisha, Alberta, Amanda---'
She stared at him, gobsmacked. 'You're not seriously going to read out a thousand names?'
His finger paused on the page and he looked up with a slight frown on his face. 'You've got nine hours to come up with a name that both suits possum here and that you love or else she'll be named for you.'
'Put that way, I see your point.'
He winked at her and went back to reading. 'Amelia, Angela, Aphra, Ardith...'
She settled back against the pillows, letting his melodic voice rain names down upon her, waiting for the one that said, This one. ~ within Chapter 6
