Two besties and a baby make for an instafamily and a surprising romance in a delightful series by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of the Sugar Lake novels.
Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.
Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.
But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after… just not one either of them expects.
Thank you to Melissa for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I am a huge fan of Melissa’s work so when I was asked if I would review Call Her Mine I couldn’t wait to dive in.
If you have read the Sugar Lake series then you will have already met Ben Dalton but even if you haven’t you could read this as a standalone. Ben Dalton and Aurelia Stark have been best friends since they were children. They have been in love with each other for years but both are too scared to tell each other that their friendship could be ruined if things don’t work out.
I fell in love with Ben Dalton when we first met him in the Sugar Lake series. He’s described as a Henry Cavill lookalike. Well, I was all in right then. Ben might be a hotshot in the city but really he is a family guy with a big heart. He loves his sisters and is clearly close to his parents too.
Aurelia is a sweet girl who is extremely strong. I am not sure I could cope with everything she goes through in this book. Aurelia has to listen to all of Ben’s conquests while her heart is being pulled apart. That must have been SO difficult, Aurelia is a true friend to Ben.
Melissa does an excellent job of showing how difficult it is to look after a baby. Melissa didn’t make it out to be rainbows and sunshine. She showed that a baby is hard work and sometimes its overwhelming. I liked that Melissa kept the truth to this side of the story.
The truth about B’s mum was all over a little quick for me. It would have been nice to have a few more scenes with her.
The epilogue was so funny! I really love Ben’s sisters! If you haven’t read the Sugar Lake series I really would recommend it along with this book too. I can’t wait to see who is next to fall in love in Harmony Pointe.
