Title: From Exes to Expecting (Sutter Creek, Montana)
Author: Laurel Greer
Genre: Contemporary Romance
This time there’s a baby on board…
Dr. Lauren Dawson knows her brief marriage to footloose photographer Tavish Fitzgerald ended for a reason. That doesn’t mean their undeniable chemistry isn’t as potent as ever. And when Tavish returns home to Sutter Creek for his sister’s wedding, the sparks between them turn into a blaze. But when Lauren finds herself pregnant, these exes have nine months to build a forever family together…
Can Lauren and Tavish create a family or will it all end in heartbreak?
Dr. Lauren Dawson is about to make partner in the same clinic her mother ran years ago. She should be thrilled but something doesn’t feel right. Her stress builds to a crescendo just days before her brother’s upcoming wedding. The last person Lauren needs to see is her ex, Tavish. Their secret marriage crashed and burned yet her heart still yearns for him. In an effort to make peace and get some closure, they have sex. So much for closure…
Tavish returns home to see his sister get married. What he didn’t expect was becoming a father. Lauren has always been the keeper of his heart and even though they couldn’t make their marriage work, he never stopped loving her. But with a baby on the way, he re-evaluates his stance on life and his need to never stay in one place for any length of time. He won’t abandon his child like his father did to him and his sister. Can he convince Lauren he’s here to stay or will his wanderlust pull him away from the best thing that’s ever happened to him?
I’m a huge fan of second-chance romance and From Exes to Expecting is one of the best I’ve read. From the beginning I loved the small town of Sutter Creek and all its inhabitants. The chemistry between Tavish and Lauren is off the charts which made me root for them to make it work. While there’s plenty of drama and issues that need to be dealt with, Lauren and Tavish are well-matched for each other. Superb writing for a debut Harlequin author and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
If you love baby romances and/or second-chance romance, you’ll fall in love with From Exes to Expecting!
Favorite Character/Quote: Tavish. Listen, I know many of you are wondering why I didn’t pick the heroine. The truth of the matter is that I found it hard to connect with Dr. Lauren but connected immediately with Tavish. Maybe it’s my wanderlust side or the fact that I’ve never gone through the immense loss Lauren has. Either way, Tavish is my favorite character. He starts out as a free-wheeling international photographer who refuses to settle down. But once Lauren tells him he’s going to be a father, his outlook changes. He wants to be there for his child, more so than his own father ever did. His personal growth was a joy to experience.
