They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. I say that’s the biggest lie ever, as does the positive pregnancy test sitting on my bathroom counter.
It was supposed to be a one night. A mutual agreement of shared pleasure, and passion, but now it’s turned into so much more than that.
So much so that there is no way I can run from the future thats growing deep inside of me.
Still I’m not cut out to be a mom and I can’t do this alone.
Her memory is all I can feel and see in my mind. I want her, and I’ll do whatever I can to find her and make her mine again.
It’s on the night that our parents announce their union of marriage that I find out the woman I slept with in Vegas is not only my new step sister but also carrying my unborn child.
Her insecurities are clear as day. She’s afraid to be a mom, and even more afraid that I don’t want her or the baby and she’s wrong, so wrong.
However, finding out she is having my baby, just makes things that much more simple because now I can claim her as my own.
She can try and run from me, even hide but, I’m still going to do whatever I can to prove to her just how much I want her and my unborn baby.
Can Emily let go of her insecruties and see that she is more than fit to be a mother, or will her and Jasper forever be seperated by her fears?
Emily might be ready to end things, but Jasper’s just getting ready to claim what’s rightfully his.
18+ mature themes like sex, language, and an alpha male that refuses to let go. Trigger warning for those that have suffered loss of a child, or have dealt with baby blues/postpartum depression please prepare yourself before reading this book.
I really enjoyed this story but for some reason it just didn’t grab me. I think it had to do with some minor details that were missing. It seemed like Emily was completely alone but we know she wasn’t. There wasn’t much interaction with her and her friends or much talk about her job. We know she worked from home but we never “saw” her do any work. It was somewhat the same with Jasper but we did get to see him at the office a few times. But I really don’t even know if he had any friends. I think that made it harder for me to truly get hit with the feels in this book, and there were quite a few of them.
That being said, the story overall was really good. I was able to relate to the characters and Jasper has become a new book boyfriend of mine. He was totally swoon worthy with an awesome personality that just made me melt. I would love to have a hot guy pursue me like he does Emily, it’s probably every girl’s dream. And don’t let my opinion of the minor details prevent you from reading this, it’s definitely worth reading!
