Review ~ His Lullaby Baby (The Baby Saga, #5) by Airicka Phoenix

His Lullaby Baby (The Baby Saga, #5)eARC received via the author in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: October 16th 2015

Publisher: Self-published

Nothing ever happens by accident.

Ex-combat search and rescue officer Toby McClain had seen all aspects of humanity in his ten years of service until friendly fire took him out of action. But bitterness was something Toby could never do. He was alive. He had his family and, after being ambushed by a door, he had his eyes on the sexy new innkeeper.

Adelaide Nixon had felt the burn of love once already. It was a mistake that cost her six years of her life. It was a punishment she never wanted to feel again, especially when there were two little people who depended on her to keep them safe. The last thing she wanted or needed was the attention of a guy whose family kept the gossip mills turning.

But no secret ever stays hidden in a place like Willow Creek. Even as Toby breaks through Addy’s walls, a new threat comes to town, leaving her no choice but to put more than her heart in Toby’s hands and trust him not to destroy her.

My Opinion

I have no idea what it is about this series that has captivated me and kept me coming back for more. In theory I should hate it because of the kid angle. I'm not a fan of small towns who are up in everyone's business, young children, and relationships between parents. However, in this series each book is more endearing than the next and so I've been excited to read His Lullaby Baby.

Just like all of the other books in this series it held my interest and had me unable to put it down. It was a cute read that although has its tough moments, was mostly a heart-warming read of a woman overcoming her past and learning to love.

I admired Addy. Although her past is a little predictable, she's a hard character not to like--and so were her kids. Their little family was isolated until Toby enters their life and turns it upside down. I like that even then she still wanted to do things for herself and not take advantage of him or his family.

Similarly, I enjoyed reading Toby's persistence. He slowly broke down Addy's walls and gained her trust. Just like all of the other guys in his family he had a good heart and was an all round good guy. I will admit it took me until around 20% to remember who he was. The McClain's family tree is confusing as hell, but I got there in the end...I think. Just don't ask me to explain it, you're on your own for that.

As for the story, it's a heart-warming read. Some of it is predictable, but it's a gentle book that I got swept up in. The whole life of the town, closeness of the family, and tightness of the relationships drew me in.

Overall another great instalment. If you like sweet reads you'll want to check this series out.
