The Best Man's Baby (A Red River Book) by Victoria James

Book Blurb:
Florist Claire Holbrook has always played by the rules her entire life, but breaks them to spend one night with sexy lone wolf Jake Manning, a man she's adored since she was a teenager. Six weeks later, things get complicated when she discovers they created a bond that will last a lifetime

Jake has never played by the rules. Getting Minister Holbrook's daughter pregnant wasn't part of any life plan, but he won't run from his responsibilities. He'll step up and be the best man he can, even if he doesn't have a clue where to begin. The more time he spends with Claire, though, the more he wants her, and the harder it is to get close, because that would mean sharing the one thing he hasn't with anyone--the truth and his heart.

My Review:
This is the second in a series about three brothers and although it refers to characters and events that take place in the first book, A Risk Worth Taking, this book can be read stand-alone.  This is an incredibly sweet story of two characters that have come to a place in their lives where they have to believe in themselves.  There is humor and some totally heart-wrenching scenes along with romantic lead ins to fade to black sex.  This is a fast paced, can’t put down read.  I look forward to the third installment.

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.
