Two brothers. One impossible choice
From the moment her suspicions are confirmed, Lily knows she’s screwed. What the hell is a nineteen year old with no future going to do with a baby? She can barely take care of herself. She needs help.
In walks Sloan McClain, the only man Lily has ever truly wanted — and the brother of the boy whose baby she’s carrying. While Lily expects a great number of outcomes when she tells Sloan her news, him proposing marriage and asking her to keep the baby is not one of them, especially not when she has every intention of giving the baby a better future by giving it the home she can’t.
Having spent the majority of his life protecting his brother from the bone-breaking fists of their father, Sloan is no stranger to hardship, loss and abandonment. He has learned long ago never to rely on anyone to take care of what was his, and that baby is his. He isn’t about to let Lily give away his family, nor can he allow that child to destroy the future he has built for Cole. His only option: marry the mother and claim the baby as his.
But no secret ever stays hidden forever.
Holy wowzers!!!! This book was amazeballs!!!! Forever His Baby simply just blew me away. I have been reading this genre lately, and it has become my favorite. When I read the synopsis for this book, I could not wait to get my hands on it!!! Everything about it was real, and the emotions were so raw. I had so many feels with this book. I felt everything. Their emotions pulled me in and drew me to them. This is something that could actually happen. These are some characters that anyone could relate to.
Lily has had a rough life, but well loved. She had her family who loved her dearly and her best friend who always had her back. Now that they are grown up, everything has changed. At 19, Lily finds herself in a tough situation. She is pregnant with her best friend's baby, and her best friend, Cole, is away at college. She wants to do the right thing and tell him which is why she has Sloan take her to him. But after seeing how is life is now, she couldn't take it away from him. So here is where the lies start. Sloan always believed that you take care of what is yours. And that baby is his blood. He doesn't want her to get rid of the baby so he makes sure he is there whenever she needs him. They even tell everyone that he is the father!! They have always loved each other, and I loved seeing them finally come together and act on those feelings. I loved both Lily and Sloan. I loved how selfless they were. Even Cole. No matter what, those men do right.
Sloan, Sloan, Sloan. He is a man that everyone would want. He is loving, selfless and protective. The way he was always worried about Lily and taking care of her was so sweet. He has made so many sacrifices to get Cole out of their town and make something of himself. Now, he was willing to sacrifice for Lily, even though he wouldn't consider it as sacrificing. I adored Sloan. What woman wouldn't. Cole was a great guy to. After he learned the truth, he had to make sacrifices as well in order to become a great father. I loved both of these brothers. After the life they had, they still became great men. Always doing whats right. Always taking care of what is theirs. Lily also made sacrifices as well. For her parents, for Cole and even Sloan.
Forever His Baby was an enthralling story that literally drew me and made me feel. I fell in love with everything about this book. It is a definite reread. I am telling you. Once, you start this book, you won't be able to put it down. I couldn't. I had to know what happened next. Each chapter left me wanting more and before I knew it, I was finished. If you are looking for a story full of romance, twists, secrets then this book is for you!!! I highly recommend this book!!! It is a MUST read!!!
