    2. I downloaded this book a few weeks ago when I was in the mood for a sweet contemporary romance after all the murder mystery and serial killer stories I’d been reading at the time. Well, I shifted out of that mode but still had this book to read and was really pleased to discover that this wasn’t the “cute” story I thought it would be. It has a really strong mystery/suspense element underpinning the romance and there’s quite a bit of conflict.The Set UpMegan Young dated Adam Waters in c [...]

    3. Sweet and Hot All Rolled Into OneThe Baby Bargain has a little bit of everything. Second chance love story? Check. Secret baby plotline? Most definitely. Hot alpha ex-marine turned security expert that wants the love of a good woman but fears he has nothing to offer her? You bet. Suspense revolving around the theft of a famous show dog? Ummmmm, well, yes. Megan and Adam had a relationship in college but Adam, bound for life in the Marines, broke it off after graduation because he wanted no part [...]

    4. What?I had so much trouble getting into this book, and in all honesty I never did. It had promise until Adam (douchebag) showed up and the two main characters interacted. There was no chemistry whatsoever. I found they're relationship to be shallow, superficial.It seemed like they were just two strangers talking.Adam, is a selfish douchebag.Megan, is an idiot.It's all lust.I don't even know why they "love" each other. Just that they were together in college. He left cause he wan't no family caus [...]

    5. 3 - "Even when I'm mad as hell at you, I still want you." Stars.Jennifer Apodaca is an author that I have read and enjoyed before, so it was no surprise that I got pulled in and swept up with Megan and Adam’s story.Who doesn’t love a well written second-chance love story, especially when a little suspense and a cute toddler are thrown into the mix as well.Adam is your typically tortured hero, but still a true gentleman even though he believes he is incapable of offering a full commitment. Re [...]

    6. Short, stupid and unbelievable. The only positive thing I can think of is that it's cheap.The problem is that cheap isn't a good thing. Here cheap is something beyond the 0.99 tag. It's the really bad cut, the I don't know what I'm doing one, the plastic material this dress is made of. The result is a really ugly dress that makes even the mannequin look bad.The MC are pathetic, he is an a***hole and a jerk. His PSDT is an offense to people suffering from the real problem. She's beyond stupid. Th [...]

    7. After spending 10 hours writing lesson plans for 2 hour and 45 minutes of instruction time, I finally had some time to myself and picked up this book to read. It was just what I needed. It was well paced (for the mist part- it did take Meg almost half the book to tell Adam her secret), a good balance between the love scenes and action and the characters were likable. What I think I liked most was that these two had a history and were already in love with one another - they dated for several year [...]

    8. Kitty's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews 4.5 StarsJennifer Apodaca is another new author for me and I thoroughly enjoyed reading “The Baby Bargain”. A little bit of love, a little bit of sex, a little bit of intrigue and one great big secret. What a wonderful recipe for a hot Marine and a sexy veterinarian.The story starts off with Megan being black-mailed by Raven’s Cove local celebrity, Nathan McCray, an ex-pro golfer with lots of money, a bitter divorce and a custody battl [...]

    9. DNF at 22%.This book is only about four years old but it reads as if it was written decades ago. Maybe it's because it's past 1 am on a school night and I'm tired and grouchy but puhleease!Adam Waters and Megan Young had two one night stands a few years apart. Each time he walked away without a word and doormat that she was Megan just let him. The second time she was pregnant. Now he's back in town after leaving the Marines unexpectedly and Megan doesn't know whether to tell him he has a son - d [...]

    10. I was a little nervous that we would not find out about the child, Cole, until closer to the end of the book, but that did not happen. As soon as Adam found out about his “C-Man” (I loved that nickname that Adam gave his son) the story took off. Megan was a great heroine. She was sweet and understanding, but strong at the same time. I was upset with the fact that she did not tell Adam about Cole until he was 2 years-old. I think a man should always know. However, we learn what happened in he [...]

    11. **4.5 Stars**The Baby Bargain by Jennifer Apodaca is the perfect read if you're looking for a sexy & tortured ex-marine hero to fall in love with. Adam is an ex-marine with plenty of his own demons to fight. Megan is a veterinarian with her own emotional baggage and secret. They both had a past and one night of unbridled passion resulted in their son, Cole. However, Adam walked away from Megan without a backwards glance that morning after and told her he wouldn't be back. Three years later, [...]

    12. 4.5 StarsJennifer Apodaca is the alter-ego of Jennifer Lyon, when I heard she was releasing contemporary works under a different name I couldn't wait to read them and I wasn't disappointed. In The Baby Bargain we meet Megan Young a small town vet with a big heart, she has worked hard to get where she is and when she is confronted by her past in the form of ex-boyfriend Adam Waters she feels the walls she has built around herself start to crumble. Megan and Adam had a relationship years before, f [...]

    13. The Baby Bargain is the current release from Jennifer Apodaca, and signals a return to her contemporary romantic suspense roots. Jennifer writes compelling paranormal romances under her Jennifer Lyon brand. Personally, I'm a huge fan of both! This story touches on some tried and true romance tropes--including a secret baby--and Jennifer handles the story with an adept hand, lots of tension, and a satisfying conclusion that doesn't rely on the tried and true. And there are dogs. Two of them. Okay [...]

    14. A great read beautifully written and crafted a story that flowed really well from chapter to chapter. I loved the character's of Single mum Megan and her ex-marine/ Boyfriend she has got a secret that she has kept from him for three year's and she knows that she can't keep it now he has returned home to sell his family home and to leave the town that has too many memories and demons, That he can't forget and still hurt him deep down and always will, There is only Megan who can help him but he ke [...]

    15. Yine sevmediğim kitaplardan biri. Maalesef konusu da karakterleri de kötüydü. Yani ben böyle cins karakterleri beyaz dizilerde görmeye alışığım da romanlarda sevmiyorum. Sen defol git, gel yıllar sonra, iki yatar sonra yine yolumuza bakarız de ve kız senden bir şeyleri gizleyince köpür. Oldu canım, oldu paşam, başka emrin var mıydı? Hayır yani bunları hangi kafayla yazıyor acaba bu yazarlar. Baştan sona kötüydü diyebilirim kısaca. Yazarın 10 kitabı daha çevrilse, [...]

    16. 3.5-3.75 RATING- Secret babies and guys that are emotionally closed off aren't really my things and that's why this book didn't rate higher with me. Still, it was a solid book and I did enjoy it. I just didn't love it. I definitely liked the second book in this series more.

    17. ** Copy provided by the author for an honest review **Former Marine. Veterinarian. Secret baby. What do these things have in common? They make for one cute story in Jennifer Apodaca’s The Baby Bargain.Megan Young never thought she would see her ex again. But Adam Waters is back in Raven’s Cove to sell his home and make a break with the town that holds too many haunting memories. The attraction between Megan and Adam is still strong, even three years later. Megan is keeping a secret from him [...]

    18. *ARC Provided by NetGalley for an honest Review*Blah…. That was my response while reading and after reading The Baby Bargain. Normally, I’m a sucker for a baby story, especially when we get to see the father and child interact. Nothing mattered in this story. It’s like something you've read fifty times before and it lacked any sort of originality. I found myself staying up late to finish the book not because I wanted to but because I wanted to be done so I could move on to bigger and bette [...]

    19. Courtesy of Entangled Publishing through Netgalley in exchange of an honest review. Oh Adam.Hot sexy tortured hero guy alert!All it took is one night getting caught up in the heat of passion and heartache for Megan Young to get pregnant after their last night together. What she didn't expect was to see Adam Waters again after the night that he left her behind three years ago come waltzing through the doors of her veterinarian practice in the after hours with an injured dog. Adam doesn't know abo [...]

    20. Re-read today so I could include spoilers for safety gang. But honestly there is nothing to spoiler. There is zero discussion or thoughts of OW. Heroine thinks about the fact that she had dates over separation but they turn out to be a couple of fruitless lunch dates. She does have a two year old!I am not a fan of second chance books. I usually cannot get over the break up. This one did not bother me so much. They were college bf/gf who broke up and then years later had a one night hook up. He d [...]

    21. I really liked this one. It was a great novel. It had mystery, romance and action drama. I was on the edge of my seat for some of it, in tears for some of it and feeling the love between Megan and Adam. Definitely worth the read.

    22. As much as i would love to write a review for this, it doesn't really need one.A very average book, and it went just as expected. Honestly, i wanted more, hence the rating.

    23. Don't be misled by the tacky cover and title. This is a well-written book of romantic suspense.I look forward to others in this series.

    24. Received in exchange for a honest review.Megan is very stubborn. She tries so hard to exclude Adam from her life that she almost loses out on things that are good. She is a good person just stubborn.Adam comes back to town for work. Not thinking he will stay but his world gets upside down when Megan comes into his world. He is still attracted but afraid due to his past. he doesn’t want her out of his world though. So he starts to reevaluate and sees things differently. As he is figuring things [...]

    25. Eh was just okay. My major issue wasn't the story line itself, but as other reviewers mentioned there was a lack of connection between Adam and Megan. There history isn't exactly clear which I think complicates things for the reader. At one point I think they were friends who grew up together but then it seems as if they were college sweethearts. If that's the case how is it possible that they dated for so long with him still being so closed off?

    26. 3.5Secret baby, second chance contemporary romance. He was a former Marine from a grief stricken and very dysfunctional family. She was being blackmailed by a rich ex-golfer during his divorce and ensuing custody case of that family's show dog. A nice story written by a new to me author.This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

    27. This is a heart wrenching story. You smashed open my heart, but piece by piece put it back together.I don't cry or tear up in books, but you had a lump in my throat more than once whilst reading Adam and Megan's story.What starts as Meg being threatened you can't help but be 100% behind her, rooting for her to come through it; then we meed Adam - Oh boy! she is a bloody saint.I loved that we got to know about their history, pulled the story together lovely.Was she wrong to keep things a secret?
