Book review: Baby, Be Mine (Thompson & Sons #2) by Vivian Arend
Available February 25th
What the mind forgets, the heart remembers.
Since the moment Katy Thompson transformed from annoying tagalong to desirable woman, Gage Jenick has awaited his chance. When she kicks her boyfriend to the curb, he doesn’t hold back—in spite of the next day work assignment that will take him away for six long months.
After a head injury sustained on a storm-swept road, Katy can’t remember her own email password, much less how the little pink “positive” on the pregnancy stick got there. Barring an influx of midichlorians, she’s at a loss to explain what happened, or when…or with whom.
Suddenly Gage is back in her life as if he has a right to be there. While she vividly remembers the crush she had on him, she’s no one’s charity case. But another thing she’d forgotten was just how stubborn Gage can be—especially when her domineering ex tries to stake a claim…
Warning. An unforgettable night that gets forgotten. A crazy redneck ex, and a hero who’s ready to take on the world, and his past, for his heroine.
This is the second book in the Thompson and sons series. This one features the only girl in the family Katy Thompson. Gage Jenick has had a thing for Katy Thompson for a long time but since he grew up with the Thompsons, Katy was also like a little sister to him til one day she wasn't. It complicates things too that her brother is his best friend. Finally Katy has kicked her latest boyfriend to the curb and he sees his chance to make a move. After one night of incredible passion and honest talk about what he wants with her he has to leave for 6 months for a job. Unfortunately Katy has a car accident right after he leaves that takes away a lot of her memories including what happened the night they were together. Gage gets a deal on his job to cut it back to two months instead of six and when he comes home excited to see Katy he's devastated to see she doesn't remember what happened and what they talked about. This is a fast quick read. Lots of complications stand in the way of Gage and Katy's relationship. She can't remember how to add two and two and people names let alone that Gage told her he loved her before he left. She's left fighting for those memories while dealing a ex boyfriend who wants her back and Gage wanting her. Gage doesn't give up though and starts all over with her. There is the whole bombshell pregnancy to deal with it. Gage is sure it's his baby but a jealous and manipulating ex boyfriend claims it could be his too. Love the Thompson family. Katy is a tough chick who can take care of herself and I love how Gage doesn't give up on what he wants. Book one of this series is in the Anthology "Marked" and takes place at the same time of this book. If you've read it you can pick out spots that go with book one. Look forward to more of this exciting new series.
