The Baby Blitz
Two pink lines won’t change the bad blood between us.
I haven’t always hated my brother’s best friend, but Michael Oliver gets under my skin and brings out the worst in me. He knows how to push my buttons, and I relish pushing all of his. He betrayed my trust years ago, so I’ve made it my mission in life to aggravate him until he admits he was wrong.
When his sister’s wedding brings us together, Michael suggests a truce for one night. If only he weren’t so handsome and smart, maybe I could resist the allure, but I’ve always been a little impulsive, and this man is my ultimate temptation. After years of pent-up frustration and unrequited lust, I finally let down my guard, and that’s all it takes for us to combust.
But like all bad decisions, the morning after brings a reckoning, and I leave his hotel room swearing to never waste another moment of my time pining after him. Who needs that grumpy jerk warming her bed? Not me.
I don’t let myself think about that steamy night together, or how it pained me to hear about his football injury, or how much I know he wants to get drafted so he can help his family. Because I’m cutting Michael out of my life for good.
Only the two little pink lines mean I can’t forget him. Even if I desperately want to.

The Baby Blitz is a companion standalone to USA Today-bestselling author Lex Martin’s sensational college football romance novels, The Varsity Dad Dilemma and Tight Ends & Tiaras. Readers will love this sensual multicultural romance featuring a scorching-hot college football player and the feisty, but slightly nerdy girl next door—the one he swore he’d never make a move on.
Will Michael make the right decision if he has to choose between Maggie or fulfilling his dream of playing professional football?
Lex Martin is a relatively new author to be and I cannot believe that I have not read more books from this author before. When I read the blurb for The Baby Blitz I couldn’t wait to begin.
I will be honest, college romance is not a genre I read often but I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. This is Michael Oliver (aka Olly) and Maggie’s story and one that was entertaining with characters whose story I quickly became invested in.
These two have a history and their relationship is fiery. However the chemistry between them is intense and I loved the witty banter that flew between them. There was humour, steam and plenty of entertainment which made for a fun read.
All it takes is one nght to change the course of a person’s life and that is the position that Olly and Maggie find themselves in. The Baby Blitz has angst.romance and heat and one that I enjoyed.
