A one-night stand. An unplanned baby.
And a little lie that could cost her everything she worked for.
When her one-night stand results in a surprise pregnancy and the guy nowhere to be found, Filipino-American doctor Addison Rowe makes up a story about choosing to be a single mother via a sperm donation. It’s a lie but if it means keeping her reputation intact especially after her colleague’s recent scandals, Addison will do whatever it takes.
But all that changes when building contractor Jordan O’Halloran shows up at her clinic a year later and wants to be more than just her sperm donor. He wants to be part of his daughter’s life.
Suddenly, Addison finds herself navigating through family and cultural expectations, the reality that she’s not as perfect as she wants everyone to think she is, and the reality that sometimes, things happen when you least expect it… like finding the perfect man.
“Such a heartfelt, feel-good story to come out of a one-night stand set-up. We meet Addison and her baby Piper one year after an unexpected karaoke duet with a stranger Jordan. Both characters are delightfully written and have such meddlesome family members who want whats best for each it’s comical at times. All the thought out details made this such a genuine story to read from start to finish.”
“A super story, well-written, romantic, and at times steamy, I really enjoyed the author’s take on a familiar trope. It includes an interesting reversal in the age and career success for the principal characters. Both Addison and Jordan come from close families who all fall for Piper, the glorious result of their one night stand. Addison’s Filipino mother is a breath of pushy, guilting-mother fresh air and provides a bit of comic relief as she schemes to get her daughter married off. All in all, a terrific tale of instant attraction and how to deal with the unexpected and sometimes life changing consequences.”
