In a Flutter: Sweet and Sexy!!
He wants all her tomorrows
Small town mechanic Gage Jenick’s been waiting for this moment ever since his best friend’s little sister transformed from annoying tagalong to desirable woman. When sweet Katy Thompson kicks her boyfriend to the curb, Gage makes his move. In spite of an assignment that will take him completely off the grid for five long months, he steals her away for one night of steamy passion with the promise of more in the future.
She can’t remember yesterday
When a freak accident on a storm-swept road leaves Katy with a memory full of holes, she can’t remember her own email password, much less how the little pink “positive” on the pregnancy stick got there. She’s at a loss to explain what happened, or when…or with whom. Suddenly she’s got two men claiming to be her baby daddy: her redneck ex, and her long-time crush, Gage.
But what the mind forgets, the heart remembers. Still, it’s going to be a long, hard ride to a happily-ever-after for two, plus one.
*This book was previously published as BABY, BE MINE.*
Worldbuilding: This story takes place in the small town Rocky Mountain House, Canada!
Characters: The main characters in this novel are Gage Jenick and Katy Thompson. Gage has been into his best friend’s little sister for a long time and when he wants to finally make his move, his job pulls him into another direction. But he refuses to waste what precious little time he has left, thinking what if. Unfortunately, after being on the grid for five long months, a few surprises are in store for him when he finally makes it back into town. Can Gage prove to Katy that he is in it for the long haul and not just because a little test showed a pink positive plus sign? Or will Katy turn back to her ex because he is the only guy she can remember?
Plot: This mainly a romance between Gage and Katy with some ex drama thrown in!
Writing: This novel is written in third person points of view of Gage and Katy. This is the first novel in the Thompson & Sons series.
Curb Appeal: I love how both the hero and the heroine are on the cover! It gives the characters a little bit more life! The blurb gives a great rundown on the situation but leaves open the mystery of what the heroine might do!!
Ultimately: This story definitely hit the small town/country vibe I’ve been wanting to read for a long while! I know that this series is a spinoff that is loosely connected to the Six Pack Ranch world and I have to say it has that same magic! All in all, if you are in the mood for a hero who wants to be nothing but the best man for his girl and a heroine who just wants to follow her heart then come check out Ride Baby Ride!!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
