Ever since I was recruited by my college football team, I’ve pushed myself hard. Going pro and earning some real money is a must. Mostly because my brother, Flip, is in a bad place, and I’m all he’s got.
No problem. I’m tough. I’m a hard worker. I’ve got a plan.
Then right before the season starts, a woman shows up at my apartment with a baby, claiming I’m the father. And then she leaves her with me. For a week? Forever?
I have no idea, but college, football, and the single-dad gig don’t go together. And forget about my experience with babies. Does this thing come with an off switch? Volume control? Is that a poopie diaper? Help!
Things go from bad to worse when the public catches wind of my surprise-baby situation, and it turns into a PR nightmare. I’m suddenly the poster boy for young single dads.
This isn’t happening.
Suddenly, all eyes are on me, both on and off the field, and the only person who can keep me from losing my mind confesses her love.
And I mess it all up. Her, football, baby, everything.
Now I’m going to have to choose: fix my career or fix my personal life, including coming to grips with loving a baby girl who might not be mine.
Baby, Please was a fun, campy and outlandish story about figuring out what our priorities are, and learning to enjoy the ride as much as the destination. ~ Leigh – Simply Love Books
Baby, Please was not your typical romance novel. In fact, up until about 50% into the story, I still wasn’t sure who the love interest was! Frankly I’m still not totally convinced that the heroine isn’t the baby. But while not truly a romance, Baby, Please was a fun, campy and outlandish story about figuring out what our priorities are, and learning to enjoy the ride as much as the destination.
Dean was adorable. As the stressed out, overly hard on himself football player balancing school, work, a shot at the NFL and a brother in rehab, Dean had too many balls in the air. So, what he needed like a hole in the head was another obligation.
Enter Fia. One day Dean has only himself and his brother to worry about, and the next, a chubby infant is literally left in his apartment with a note that she is his and he needs to take care of her for a week.
Between googling how to change diapers and having friends, coaches and coworkers help him care for the new bouncing bundle of joy, Dean finds his obligations spinning out of control. But in the midst of the chaos, he finds out who his true allies are, and who he can count on to be there for him when the chips are down.
I thought this story was pure Mimi. It was humorous and quirky didn’t take itself too seriously. The characters, although somewhat one dimensional, were hilarious, and the situations too crazy for reality. It was a wild romp through media stardom for the hot single dad and a realization of what is important in life.
