The Baby Album PDF/EPUB ☆ The Baby eBook ¸

The Baby Album It's not exactly picture perfectThis isn't the life Casey Sinclair imagined No husband no joband a baby on the way To pay the bills Casey takes a position at Wyatt Keene's photography studio It's not perfect but what choice does she have The fact that she finds Wyatt incredibly attractive is an unexpected bonusBut something's holding Wyatt back And Casey thinks she knows what it is he's still grieving the loss of his wife and unborn child So she hides her own pregnancy As Casey and Wyatt get closer it becomes difficult for her to reveal her secret Lying to her boss was a bad way to start but how can Casey tell him the truth now just when everything she's always wanted is in reach Reviewed for THC ReviewsI've always been a fan of pregnancy storylines in romance novels but haven't read a really good one in a while When Roz Denny Fox contacted me about reviewing her new book The Baby Album I was uite eager to read it in large part because of the plot I'm so glad I got the opportunity because her book definitely fit the bill Having the heroine be pregnant by a man other than the hero can sometimes in my experience be tricky for an author to get just right but I thought Ms Fox did a very good job of creating sympathetic characters in a difficult but sweet and touching situation The plot of a heroine pregnant by a jerk of an ex meeting the perfect man who wants a family but has been denied that through tragic circumstances is not a particularly new or uniue one but The Baby Album was still distinctive enough to hold my attention throughout and gave me plenty of warm fuzzy feelings at the endI simply couldn't help but like the hero and heroine Wyatt and Casey They are both talented photographers which is a different profession that I don't think I've come across yet in my romance reading and since photography is an art form that I really appreciate I was uite taken by that element of the story Wyatt is a man who really wants kids but his first wife was very career driven and not as enthusiastic about the prospect of having a family Then when she died from pregnancy complications Wyatt shut himself off from his work and his circle of friends for a long time When he finally decides to start up his photography business again he needs help and Casey comes breezing into his life with her perky but sweet personality Casey's ex husband was a complete cad who left her pregnant with no money but she never whined about her circumstances She wasn't one of those tough independent heroines who thinks she doesn't need anyone but she did have a determined upbeat attitude in spite of her difficulties Normally I'm not big on “casting” my romance novels but for some reason the way Casey is described made me keep thinking of Kristen Chenoweth She is an actress I really like so sub consciously drawing that comparison in some ways made Casey even appealing to me Overall Wyatt and Casey were just two very realistic and relatable characters who I could see myself being friends with in real life and they were perfect for each other On a little side note I have to give kudos to the cover artist for The Baby Album I can't tell you the number of times that the cover of a book just doesn't seem to fit what is contained within the pages but to me this one was just perfect including the choice of models who fit the descriptions of the characters to a teeIn my opinion “The Big Secret” has been rather overdone in romance and I'm typically not too keen on a secondary character giving away information about one of the main characters either I usually just prefer for the hero and heroine to communicate and get things out in the open In this case I didn't really mind too much because the author created palatable reasons for both elements which made sense within the context of the story It never really felt like Casey was blatantly lying by keeping her pregnancy a secret from Wyatt since it originated out of desperation and continued to spare Wyatt's feelings Nor did it feel particularly gossipy of Wyatt's friend Brenda to tell Casey about his wife's death because it helped Casey to understand Wyatt better For once it all just came together and worked for me On the other hand I would have liked to read a little of the story from Wyatt's perspective The majority is told from Casey point of view and although I got to know Wyatt well enough and felt that I understood him for the most part I just would have liked to know what he was thinking a little often It would also have been nice to have a little build up of their relationship and sexual tension These aspects were present but not in uite as generous proportions as I would have preferred I'm certainly willing to admit though that some of this may have to do with the shorter Harleuin format I've noticed that they've been getting even shorter over the last couple of years than the author's writing talent In fact from what I can tell Ms Fox has a nice tight writing style that is very well suited for the Harleuin medium Overall The Baby Album was a sweet enjoyable read There are only a couple of mild profanities and the only love scene is skimmed over with no explicit details making it suitable in my opinion for younger and sensitive romance readers For anyone seeking a light easy read with likable characters and a feel good story this book should really hit the spot The Baby Album was my first read by Roz Denny Fox but her pleasant writing style and heartwarming storytelling has left me eager to start checking out her back listNote The Baby Album is part of the multi author series 9 Months Later a theme series by Harleuin in which each story involves a pregnancy The Baby Album is #59 in this series but to my knowledge is a stand alone novel with no connection to other books in the series except the theme I'm posting this review on my blackberry alas I'm having some issues with my beloved laptop Casey Sinclair never imagined she would never have no husband no job and a baby on the wayA search of the paper reveals a position at Wyatt Keene's photography studio It isn't ideal but it will pay the billsWyatt Keene is very easy on the eyes but something holds him back tragically his wife and unborn died Casey decides to keep her baby bump a secret until the time is rightThis story was to short for me I wish it had been longer Casey and Wyatt were a perfect fit for another I also enjoyed the closeness of Wyatt's college friends and their spouses Rushed ending Very rushed
