Lily Baker has dreamed of a family of her own for so long…but she never expected a newborn baby and a deliciously brooding man to arrive on her doorstep the very same day!

Hotshot charity boss Nic Johnson turned his back on fatherhood years ago after the devastating loss of his three-week-old son. Yet when he stumbles into beautiful Lily's life, something in his broken heart begins to heal… And after one magical, heart-stopping kiss, Nic realizes he'll never be able to let Lily go!

As far as unexpected situations go I think the one that pretty much always is the worst kind of wonderful is a baby. You‘re in shock, you’re thinking how, what, when, where, stupid questions because no doubt you know the answer to all of the above. But then comes the really scary part is how will I do this, can I do this? Now that aside imagine if you really want a family of your own, then of course an unexpected baby is not bad at all. But when it’s someone else’s baby that shows up! It’s what you always wanted but not quite how you wanted it. In this read this is the realization for Lily Baker, she has for many years dreamed of having her very own family, but when a newborn baby accompanied by a so delicious man so hot he should have come with a warning label arrives on her doorstep, she’s thinking she got more than she wished for. But what Lily does not know is that Nic Johnson is not the kind to love, nor is he really the father type either, not after the loss of his son. But one kiss draws Nic to Lily like a moth to the flame, but as we all know a moth will eventually fly off, unless Lily can brink Nic’s dead heart back to life. This was a very emotional roller coaster read, there was so much sadness mixed with happiness that I found it hard to try keep my emotions under control. The characters were well developed, the plot was a little too familiar, almost as if I have read it before which with the amount of books I read, entirely possible. So with that in the back of my mind I went hunting though my shelf and I found the book it reminded me about, the story immediately came rushing back to mind and I immediately knew why this book was familiar, but there is a huge difference with this one, Ellie Darkins did not try to sugarcoat the tragedies in the book, she put it out for all the world to see, I felt the heartache, the drama, the sadness that nearly tears the characters apart. The other read never had it, it’s by an unknown author and I don’t think I have ever seen her write anything else so I hope that she is out there perfecting the craft of drawing on each and every emotion the reader has to give. To close off I will say “Well done Ellie!” you not only had me emotionally drained at the end , but also showed me that there is always happiness in tragedy , take it any way you can get it, even if it shows up on your doorstep looking sexier than sin and carrying a baby! 4.5 star review “ Be careful what you wish for, or it might show up on your doorstep with a whole lost more than you expected!”
