One-night stand + two percent condom failure rate = happily ever after?

Bar owner Kevin Kowalski is used to women throwing their phone numbers at him, but lately he's more interested in finding a woman to settle down with. A woman like Beth Hansen. If only their first meeting hadn't gone so badly...

Beth's tending bar at a wedding when she comes face-to-face with a tuxedo-clad man she never thought she'd see again. She tries to keep her distance from Kevin but, by last call, she can't say no to his too-blue eyes or the invitation back to his room. Then she slips out before breakfast without leaving a note and, despite their precautions, pregnant.

Kevin quickly warms to the idea of being a dad and to seeing where things go with Beth. After all, he's not the player she thinks he is. But she's not ready for a relationship and, given his reputation, it's going to take a lot to convince her to go on a second date with the father of her child...

Two encounters and a one night stand bring Kevin and Beth together in a way they couldn't predict.  After meeting in his bar, and again at a wedding where Beth was working, they  can't deny the chemistry between them.  With both their pasts standing between them can they overcome this and be together as parents for their little one?

Kevin in the past has been quite the player, with woman throwing themselves at him and tucking their lipstick written numbers in his pockets.  Single, sexy and willing - he took advantage of this until the day Beth walked into his life.  Can he convince her that he's changed and isn't looking for something casual?

While the story revolves mainly around Kevin and Beth, there is a lot going on around them.  Family, friends and co-workers each have their own mini story tied in with the two main characters.  Having not read the first book in the series, it didn't really affect the book.  I'm looking forward to actually picking up the first and next book to find out a bit more about the rest of the family.

I really enjoyed this story.  I've always been a fan of the easy to read contemporary romances; they always brighten my day!  This is no exception to that!  Shannon Stacey is a new author for me, but with her easy to get into writing style and fun characters this won't be the last of her books making it's home on my bookshelf!
