The latest installment in the Billionaire Brothers series features a secret baby! Gaaahh not one of my favorite tropes, that’s for sure.
I already knew the father of Sydney’s daughter when I was reading the first book, Everywhere and Every Way, so it wasn’t a shocker to me. It wasn’t revealed in that book, but it was quite obvious based on Sydney and Tristan’s non-interaction.
The chemistry is off the charts, though! Jennifer Probst can create a believable and steamy romance and for this, I was able to finish this book.
One of my main problems that I have in this book is that their conflict could have been solved by a conversation. I understood the reasons why Sydney did not reveal that she was pregnant to Tristan but to View Spoiler »marry someone else and have that man claim their child as his own is just underhanded and I do not understand her rationale at all. « Hide Spoiler
Add to that is my dislike for Tristan. I liked Caleb and Dalton, but I had a hard time warming up to me. I also do not get why this book was the last when the second book Any Time, Any Place already revealed the mystery surrounding their mother when it was the second book. It would have been better if this was the second book.
I have to be honest though, this is one of my least favorite in the series. I still need to read Somehow, Some Way a novella that happens in between the second and third book.
