Description

I just wanted to have some fun...
It all started when I moved into my new apartment in Brooklyn and met my neighbor, Olivia. We became fast friends and so when she had to go out of town on an emergency work trip, I agreed to give her brother her keys so he could look after her dog. And then I met him. Her brother was Carter Stevens and he was sex on legs. He was a banker by day and a musician by night; arrogant, handsome, with the most tantalizing smile I'd ever seen. When he invited me to his show, I couldn't say no.

He wasn't looking for a relationship...
The night of the show we stumbled back to my place and had fun I can only blush thinking about. I'd never had a one-night stand before, but one night soon led to two, which led to three. Carter was exciting and mysterious, but he was a total playboy. He made it clear that this was some no strings attached fun.

But fate had other plans for us...
I thought we'd been careful, but I guess there was that one time that we weren't. And now, I'm pregnant and Carter Stevens and I have to figure out what to do next because one thing we both know for sure is that the baby is coming in nine months and we have no idea what to do next.

  • Duel POV- cute story

    Received an ARC for an honest review. Cute story. You get to see into both of their minds, Lila and Carter, and they’re just too cute. I felt that the duel POVs was a nice touch. The story made sense, no random inconsistencies. It was a simple story that was an easy read. I did feel like it wrapped up a little too fast though. Can’t wait for Dante’s story; a blind date sounds intriguing. I hope Danielle and Steel get their story too.
  • Worth the wait...

    I pre-ordered this book and then was lucky enough to receive an advanced reader copy for my honest review. This was a refreshing, funny story. Flirting, sex, sarcasm, love, and a baby. Seriously what more can you need?! Lila is an independent attorney and Carter is a Wall Street hottie turned musician. Lila and Carter discover instant chemistry when they meet and agree to a one night stand that turns into countless days. After a month, Lila finds out that she is pregnant and now they need to figure out their next step. They both feel more, but neither will admit it. Will Lila end up being a single mom while Carter goes off to live his dream of being a musician? Or will they both figure out that just may be love at first sight exists?

    I absolutely loved this book until the end. It was moving at a great pace. It had a great plot. It had great detail. The dialogue spot on. I loved their interactions and their intimate moments. I throughly enjoyed this book. But I hated the ending. I would have been ok if they just left things the way they were. Or even if we had to use our imagination that they ended up together. I see there is another book in the works. But the ending was rushed. I felt there that there could have been another chapter then an epilogue or even the last chapter. I think the last chapter would have worked if there was more of a build up. It's almost like the author was late of dinner and had to go so they just "finished" the book.

    I really liked this book. I felt it showed the true feelings between Lila and Carter. I loved the attitude they each had and their true feeling they had for each other even if they were unwilling to admit it to each other!!

    This is a great story about two people who are into their own lives and don’t want anything from each other. They want their fun and be done. Just when you think life is going your way, reality smack you in the face. Lol and a baby changes everything for them. Cute story!

    When a “one night stand” leaves both Carter and Lila unexpectedly contemplating more than just that night... Can Lila look passed Carter’s playboy ways, and see him for something more? And can Carter get Lila learn to keep his jealousy under control on seems to be and the 1st woman he wants more with before it pushes her away? And what happens when baby makes 3??? I really enjoyed Along Came Baby, it was the perfect short story, jammed packed with passion, heart, and sizzling chemistry. Lest we not forget the cameo/teaser of Dante in there too..I love it, cannot wait to see what J.S. Cooper has in store for us next.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet story. If you are looking for an easy, non-angsty, lazy afternoon read, this book is for you. I wouldn’t normally read an accidental pregnancy story, I feel they are over done. I love this author, so gave it a read. OMG, am I glad I did! Carter has a playboy reputation, but is besotted with Lila from the start. Of course, Lila doesn’t have him figured out. Read for yourself to appreciate this sweet HEA story.

    Along Came Baby is such a great read. Carter whose definitely trying to be depicted as a hit it and quit it type is sooooo much more as Lila learns. You cannot help but fall for Carter Stevens. He’s written in a sexy, frustrating, funny and complex way. We get to watch him navigate from no strings attached to?!?( you have to read it to find out)!!! Watching JS Cooper navigate through Lila’s attempts at being in the moment for just “ fun” was great. She writes totally relatable characters that you can’t help but cheer for. The best part is the WHAT?!?😮 Ending lol! Great story, easy read and I can’t wait for the next book.
