Quarterback Keeper is Lacey Black’s newest standalone novella. I have read every word Lacey has written and have loved them all. She is becoming the queen of the surprise baby books!
Ashtyn had no idea that when she went over to celebrate her news with her twin brother, Alex, that she would end the night with his best friend, Tate. Tate, the hottest quarterback in the NFL as well as being the biggest playboy. She had only met him a handful of times over the last ten years and never thought in a million years that he even looked at her as more than Alex’s bookworm little sister. And she definitely didn’t expect that their one night together would change her life forever…
Tate is shocked, pissed, and in awe of Ash’s secret. He thought their night together was amazing even if he did leave like a coward by morning. But this? Why wouldn’t she tell him about having a baby. A baby! A cute little one who stares at him like he is his everything. He never thought he would want this but he is knocked off his axis. Can he and Ash make this work? Is there more than a baby between them?
Aw!! This is an novella but it packs a punch! So much story full of friendship, love, burps, and little cute baby toes. I loved it and kinda hoping for an Alex book. That man needs to find love.
The sexy librarian could very well have been the best thing to happen to me and my greatest mistake, all in one.
Trying to pretend he’s not there is futile, especially when his aftershave makes its way across the room. It’s a sexy woodsy scent that would turn the best of girls into a bad one.
“You might be right, but look what I did,” I state proudly, pointing down to the fresh diaper.
Ashtyn snickers, closing the dirty diaper and throwing it at me. “The quarterback has quick hands.”
Quarterback Keeper is a short, sexy, funny and sweet novella by the talented Lacey Black. I love a good brother’s best friend romance and add in a surprise baby? Double the goodness! Tate is Ashtyn’s twin brother’s best friend. They aren’t close, but they spend one night together, celebrating her new job, drinking and talking. He’s more than she thought he would be. And he wants her. She should say no, he’s a famous NFL quarterback, but she doesn’t want to. Their chemistry is too good to pass up. But then he’s gone in the morning, but never forgotten. She’ll always have his baby to remember him by. But then he shows up at her door with her brother and he’s not going to let her get away again. Tate hasn’t stopped thinking about Ash since the one night they spent together. He hasn’t been partying like he used to. Hasn’t been picking up women. She just got to him and he can’t believe she’s here. And she has a baby. One look at her son and he knows it’s his. And he’s not running away this time. Will Tate and Ashtyn realize there’s more between them than their son? I loved this story. So much! It might be a novella, but it never feels that way. It’s well developed, fast-paced and I fell hard and fast for the characters. Tate is sexy and sweet and I love the way he looks at her and his son. Ash is smart, funny and such a good mom. Overall, I laughed, teared up, smiled and loved it.
