Review: Baby, Please by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff



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.

I expected something lighthearted and kind of silly but this story was so much more. This is a romcom with suspense and higher stakes that kept me turning the pages to see what was coming next. Dean is a cocky wide receiver with a bright future ahead of him until one really bad game. He drinks away his sorrows and ends up spending the night with a sexy stranger who had problems of her own. Almost a year later, he comes home to a baby on his bed with a note explaining this is his daughter and he needs to watch her for a week.

Dean was floored at first because he had no idea what to do with a baby but despite his struggles, he quickly became attached to Fia. He needs help from his friends but not everyone is willing so he learns who his true friends are in the process. Just when he decides things couldn’t possibly be more crazy, things get even wilder.

This is a quick read with a lot of story packed in and a sweet HEA. I received an ARC from Grey’s Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
