Review ~ Be My Baby *Jared & Calla* (The Baby Saga #3) by Airicka Phoenix

Be My Baby  *Jared & Calla*eARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: March 30th 2015

It started with a drink and ended in a night neither will ever forget.

Calla McClain had done a great number of questionable things in her past, getting drunk at a friend's wedding and winding up in bed with the man she loved should have been a dream come true. Only their one night of mind blowing sex wasn't the only mistake she'd made in her intoxicated stupor.

Waking up hitched to the girl he'd been in love with since they were sixteen suited Jared just fine. He was in no hurry to cut those papers up, no matter how hard the new Mrs. Dumont insisted she was no good for him. He wasn't going to let her keep them apart, and he sure as hell wasn't going to let her walk away now that she belonged to him.

But can Jared accept the demons snapping at Calla's heels? Can he convince her they were perfect for each other? And what will happen when they learn that getting married was the least of their problems?

My Opinion

This was another sweet, heartwarming, and touching read. I started this series on a whim because there was something about the cover that kept book 1 in my mind, and I'm so glad I did. With every book I've grown to love the characters more and Be My Baby was a great continuation.

Be My Baby begins quite a few years after where Bye Bye Baby leaves off and centres around Calla's story. I wasn't sure about this development because it skips so many years, but it worked. Calls is fully grown and her own woman in the book. She's had more than her fair share of troubles and the story picks up as she's trying to cope with the consequences.

I will admit that I wasn't sure about the start because of the emotions between Jared and Calla. She came across as cold an it took a while for me to understand the reasons for keeping him at arm's length. However, when Jared started to fight for her, that's when things got interesting. You can't not love Jared and he melts your heart with his actions. He's a solid character that you can rely on and I liked his persistence. There was an obvious spark between Calla and Jared so I was glad to see their happiness grow.

In terms of story it wasn't as moving as the second book for me. There were some sad scenes, but the didn't tug at my heart as much as I was expecting. I'm not saying that was a bad thing as what was written worked well with the tone of the book.

Anyway, overall I can't wait to see where the author takes this series next. I'm hoping Willa gets a story at some point and can't wait to read about her. This is a great series that has somehow managed to allow me to like children for once (I'm not usually a fan of books with babies or little children in). Book 1 was worth the risk and I'd highly recommend the series as a whole.
