About One Baby Daddy
“What are you doing now that your team is out of the running for the Stanley Cup?”
I need to forget. I need an escape.
Only one person isn’t falling for my reputation as the NHL’s Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend’s house. She didn’t want to hear my reason–she only wanted to playfully give me a hard time.
Adalyn is bold, sassy–and the perfect escape.
She’s everywhere. In town and in my dreams, and suddenly I need to spend every waking moment with her.
And I do, making this summer the best off-season I’ve ever had.
But in the midst of getting lost in Adalyn, what I don’t expect is to get her pregnant.
And what I definitely don’t expect is having to fight for her affection.

OK, so this was a first time read from this author and the synopsis had me so intrigued about Hayden and Adalyn. For the most part, I genuinely enjoyed their story, but it didn’t exactly work for me like I was hoping it would. I definitely want to give the other books in this series a try because I’ve heard a lot of great things about them.
So, I was completely hooked into their story from the beginning until roughly around 50% … and then a lot of things were just not working for me. Bah, I don’t like writing these kinds of reviews, but seriously, I wanted to love this so much.
I’ll start off with the absolute sweetheart that is Hayden Holmes! He’s definitely different when it comes to the various sports heroes we read about and I absolutely loved him. Being one of the top rookies in hockey, coming so close to achieving his dream, but it gets taken away. Like any athlete, an opponent can only push so much before they push back. And Hayden just did that, which resulted in him being in the penalty box during such a crucial time in the match. With the season ending not the way that he hoped, he needs to clear his mind, so he heads back to some of his roots to visit his best friend, Racer.
And that’s when Adalyn is introduced into the story! I absolutely loved her in the beginning, she’s the sassy nurse with a quick wit and kept things honest. It was so easy to see why Hayden was head over heels the first time they met. Even with Racer warning both of them to stay away from each other, they couldn’t resist the instant pull. Hayden was completely smitten with her.
Ok, back to Hayden. He definitely wanted to do everything right by Adalyn. He wanted them to take their time and boy, it was such a complete tease, but it’s so steamy when they can’t hold out anymore. I love his patience, truly a man with a heart of gold made it so easy to admire him. Plus, I loved that he was straightforward with her during every step of the way. Their future was unknown because of her full-time job as a nurse and his demanding hockey career. From the beginning to 50%, everything just seemed so perfect, but I was waiting for the impending news to come. Hayden can’t stay there forever and has to go back to his career, but I was wondering what direction the surprise pregnancy would take this story in.
In the second half of the book, I struggled with Adalyn a lot. And that’s when the major conflicts happen. I didn’t agree with many of Adalyn’s decision and they just drew me away from her character. Like girl, you have the perfect man in front of you willing to give you the world and you nearly throw it away. With her poor decisions and another’s POV added to the mix, I was beginning to lose sight of a happy ever after between Hayden and her. I was so confused with my feelings towards her because she was such a boss in the first half, I loved her so much. I felt like she was completely unfair to Hayden during the second half. And he was literally on his hands and knees proving himself when I thought it wasn’t necessary at all. He’s been doing that from day 1.
Besides my strong dislike for Adalyn, I absolutely love Meghan Quinn’s writing, it was so easy for me to get lost in her writing. Even though this book didn’t work 100% for me, I’m definitely looking forward to her other work. Hayden is a hero that many of us will love and first-half Adalyn is the best! I wished that carried out through the entirety of their story.

“Would you mind zipping up the back of my dress?” She walks toward me, her flowery scent floating in my direction, spiking my yearning into overdrive.
“Uh, yeah . . . sure.”
She turns around, and looks over her shoulder. The back of her dress is completely open, the zipper undone to just above the curve of her beautifully round ass.
Shit, all that smooth, tan skin, covered by nothing but the velvety fabric of the dress. Is she wearing underwear? She’s not wearing a bra and I see no panty line.
Clearing my throat, I ask, “Are you wearing underwear, Adalyn?”
From over her shoulder, she smiles shyly. “Yes, it’s small though.”
Of course it is. Why wouldn’t it be?
Not being able to stop myself, I take a second to float my fingertips up her spine. From the initial touch, her back arches and a small gasp releases from her lips, but before I can think about stopping, she melts into my touch. Stepping closer, I place my hand on the back of her hip, my thumb pressing into her ass while the other hand explores the bare expanse of her back. Her head falls to my shoulder. Her lips part, and when I snake to the front of her dress, her breath hitches.
Eyes closed, I take in ragged breaths, my fingers inching closer and closer to her front, my cock painfully hard.
It’s been so goddamn long—and being with Adalyn has only spurred on my need—but I want to make sure we’re in a good place before we commit to anything. I want to make sure she’s ready emotionally because the minute I bury myself deep inside her, I know there will be no turning back. She will be mine forever.
But maybe for now, I can just have a little touch . . .
My cock pressed against her butt, she expertly grinds her backside into me, her hands moving to my neck, pulling my head down to hers. I kiss the side of her neck, using the hand that’s gripping her hips to guide her with her grinding in just the right place.
Fuck, that feels good.
I grunt, the sound vibrating over her sleek neck. My hand on her stomach, she arches wanting more of my touch, silently asking me to move north.
And I fucking comply. Inch by slow inch, I guide my hand to just below her breasts. When I halt my pursuit, a displeased groan escapes her.
I squeeze my eyes shut, trying to find the willpower. Her fingernails dig into my scalp, spurring me on as she turns her head and finds my lips.
She kisses me.
Her lips gliding across mine, her tongue diving into my mouth, her moans are vocal and sexy. Her delicious ass, pressing, grinding, undulating against my rock-hard cock makes me want to do so much more, makes me want to taste so much more.
Moving my hand higher, my fingertips graze the bottom of her breast. Soft. Round. Smooth. I caress her right below her nipple, never touching, just teasing . . . tempting.
