Some consequences bite...big time.
Bennett Langdon has a firm no-relationships policy. Still, it doesn't stop her from hooking up with a super-sexy bad boy at her best friend's wedding. After all, it's only one night-what harm could it do? Ten weeks later, a pregnant Bennett has her answer...
Linc Monahan can't believe it. This wasn't supposed to happen. He's a werewolf, and shouldn't be able to father a child with a human. Now Linc has to find some way to tell Bennett that not only do werewolves exist, but she's about to have a baby with one.
But when word of their surprise conception gets out, the fur hits the fan. There are people who don't want this baby to be born-even if it means killing. Now Bennett and Linc aren't just fighting each other...they're fighting for their lives.
This is the second book in the Take it like a Vamp series. While the couple from the first book play a nice role in this one, I was quickly caught up in the story.
After a one night stand at her best friend's wedding, Bennett turns up pregnant. She never knew her father and figures she really needs to tell Linc he's going to be a daddy. He's her bff's husband's bff...and second in command, and shouldn't have been able to get a human pregnant. Although she doesn't know that. In fact, she doesn't know about the supernatural stuff that is going on all around her. Stuff like said bff's hubs is a vampire...and her baby daddy is a werewolf.
It was an interesting scene when they were all there for the US and she found out her babe is a lot further along than she'd thought it could be. While she takes the news well, she's just a bit shell-shocked. Then she finds out that the reason she could even get pregnant is because she's not human...yes, that takes a bit of time to come to terms with, too!
Had to laugh when Linc hopes she's part mermaid...because they really like to party. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Lots of interesting twists, turns, and family reunions before their HEA.
There were a few timeline issues here. I kept getting lost as to how much time had actually passed. Also, there's a naked model...that he's alone with...that I kept wondering what the heck she was even doing in the chapter. She apparently got left, naked, in the dressing room, too! Yes, I was confused. (EDITING THIS REVIEW TO ADD: I spoke with the author and she says they CUT the part with the naked model! And fixed the timeline issues. WELL DONE!)
Those issues only took a bit of the appeal away as I read this. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Maybe there'll be one of those hard partying mermaids!
Thank you, Entangled and NetGalley, for the opportunity to read this book.
