Kat Cantrell delivers a sizzling story with sassy dialogue and steamy love scenes, all while teaching us about love, forgiveness, and sacrifice.

“…when she opened her front door to the man who’d once taken her to heights never experienced before or since, her brain deserted her…A familiar, cloud-parting smile broke open across his stubbly jaw, its effect a forceful punch to a feminine place long forgotten. Unbelievable. After all this time, both her brain and her body still reacted to him without her permission.” 

And with those thoughts, after being apart for more than eight years, the good Dr. Crane, now a child psychologist, and the wild daredevil, Shay, are about to be thrown into an orbit neither knew existed. When Shay inherits the baby of his deceased best friends, he contacts the one woman who could break his heart, to whip him into the world’s best father.

Kat Cantrell writes with humor — 

“I could put some Shay in your sway, baby.” and “Danged if I don’t like this new you. That high-brow tone you get when you’re being all consulty-like, it’s really sexy.” 

Kat Cantrell can also dish up sexy — 

What’s my nonverbal saying?” “It says you’re interested in throwing me over your shoulder and doing very wicked things to me upstairs.” His eyes widened involuntarily. “Wow, you’re good. What is your nonverbal saying? ‘Please hurry’?”

And, breath-catching lusty — 

“I’d prefer to experiment in the moment by moving a certain way and then asking if you like it…”Experiment. On me. Sexually.” How he choked out actual words was beyond him. “Please. I know it’s a-” “Shut up, Ju. Just shut up a minute.” He didn’t know whether to laugh or cry and if she kept babbling, he might do both. Not even the wounded expression on her face could blast through the lust-hazed vision clouding his senses, of her naked, mounted on top of him, head thrown back in ecstasy as she rolled her hips. “Sorry, I’m still trying to process.”

THE BABY DEAL is well written and keeps you entertained cover to cover.

Now, if that doesn’t make you want to run out and buy the book — nothing will!

THE BABY DEAL is well written and keeps you entertained cover to cover. The characters are well developed and the combination of sass, humor, lust, and compassion will have the reader falling in love with them. I loved getting to know the characters through their passion for life, the baring of their hearts as they each realized that to change the other, would somehow lessen them, and sometimes it is ourselves we need to heal, not the one we love.

“…don’t you see? You’re my stability  You were always there, on the ground, steadying me. Giving me a place to land. You’re the earth to my sky.”

I am giving this book 5 stars. It was well written and virtually error free, and contained an element you do not often find in a romance novel – a lesson in life.

About the Reviewer

Donna McBroom-Theriot
Writer. Book Reviewer. Southern Lady. Connoisseur of Chocolate. My Life is like an episode of "I love Lucy!" I'm a writer, book reviewer, and a Southern Lady who loves her Sweet Tea. My blog, My Life. One Story at a Time. is where I've been writing short stories since 2009. As luck would have it, the very first short story I wrote was published within months of my writing it. This quote pretty much sums me up: "Deep in my heart, I know there’s no promise I’ll be free from trouble in this life. In fact, I’m usually either getting out of trouble, currently in trouble, or about to meet trouble around the next corner." Well, you know that old saying, "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions" - that road is usually the one I'm on! And, as much I used to mock (we all grow up eventually) the Cajun dialect, 15 years ago, I found myself marrying the sweetest Cajun boy - complete with the requisite white trawl boots and a trawl boat. I love writing stories about the South and life with our two German Shepherds, and the four kids who meander in and out of our lives as they live their own journeys. Most days you'll find me out on the front porch swing, with the dogs at my feet, a tall glass of sweet iced tea close by, and a good book. It's what life in the South is all about. - See more at:
