Finding romance, one book at a time.

The Baby Bargain: A Once a Marine Series Book (Entangled Indulgence)

The Baby Bargain: A Once a Marine Series Book (Entangled Indulgence) - Jennifer Apodaca I'm always a sucker for the surprise pregnancy romance trope. In The Baby Bargain, we learn that the surprise happened two years ago and the father is in the dark. I think that if we had a flashback to that night that Adam and Megan hooked up after his parents' funeral, I would have had more sympathy towards Adam. He was such a douchebag from start to almost the end that I just could not deal with him.The Baby Bargain is a good read and for the most part enjoyable. Adam and Megan used to date in college and then they hooked up when Adam was in town for his parents' funeral. Now Adam is back in Raven's Cove to sell his parents' house. He wants to close that last connection to Raven's Cove and get back to his life in Los Angeles. Then he runs into Megan and those feelings are rekindled. But Adam isn't relationship material. He wants to have sex with Megan while he's in town and then be done with her once he returns to L.A.Megan isn't sure if she should tell Adam about their son, Cole. But when someone is attacking her practice and her integrity, Megan feels that she has no choice. She doesn't think that Adam is father material but she needs him to protect their son as her professional world is falling apart.I felt like the chemistry between Adam and Megan was lacking. I know they have this history but I didn't feel any connection. Adam is selfish and Megan is an idiot for hooking up with him even when he expressed he didn't want a relationship. Adam's reaction to finding out he had a son was so douchey. I wanted Megan to slap him or curse him out. Instead she felt guilty. Ummm...no. She had no reason to feel that way. Adam has proven that he is not one to stick around. So why tell him so that he can not stick around again? Pffft!Adam has some issues from his childhood that causes him to have nightmares. Adding to that the nightmares from being a Marine and at war and he has some emotional issues. These issues he hides from Megan. I would have liked to see him go into therapy to work things out instead of just telling his story and then be all, 'Phew! Glad I got that off my chest."The Baby Bargain was a nice way to spend a couple of hours. Even though I didn't care for Adam and felt that the romance was a little flat, I did like the book.
