From New York Times bestselling author Krista Lakes, comes a sexy standalone novel about the baddest bad boy doctor and the sweet little nurse that he falls for.
When I left my small hometown years ago, I never expected to come back. I certainly never expected that when I did, I'd be working for him.
He's the town's doctor. He's supposed to be a respectable member of society, a pillar for the community. He's supposed to have come a long way from the bad boy who rode a motorcycle in high school.
But he hasn't. One glance from those lustful eyes looking at me tells me that he has the same voracious appetites that he did when we were younger.
Only it's not quite the same stare. It's more urgent. It's more intense. I'm not the same nerdy girl who tutored him. I've grown up, developed fertile curves that I know he finds irresistible.
In this small town, rumors travel fast, and the family doctor can't be seen as a player. So he does try to resist. And I do too. But with every smouldering glance and moment of sexual tension, we find our barriers breaking down.
After a stressful night of touch-and-go baby delivery, a moment of elation overcomes our inhibitions. It seems like maybe we'll need to confront those rumors sooner rather than later, especially before I begin to show the results of that night.
Can I give this doctor the family he has always desired?

Small town romance
ARC for honest review with no compensation
This is book 1 in the new series by Krista Lakes called Bad Boys and Babies and what a great start!!
Hannah a nurse has returned to her hometown to take care of her ill father and gets a job at the town clinic which is run by Dr. Jacob Matthews, a former classmate, secret crush and the town's bad boy. As they continue working together Hannah's crush grows but she knows that their past needs to remain in the past and keep their relationship strictly professional. Little does she know that Jacob has feelings for her too but being in a small town with lots of busybodies nothing can be kept a secret for long...
Sparks fly, twists, turns, engagements that are not real, crushes that blossom, pregnancy, and love make this a book you will not want to put down until the last word is read!!
Not what I like to read
This is not what I expected. I found this book to be upsetting and disturbing...not the romance part between Doctor Jacob and Nurse Hannah. Their storyline is a good sweet story. It is the excessive abuse, interference and cruelty of the townspeople that got to me. The appalling way Hannah is treated by everyone especially after she and Jacob have their relationship exposed is beyond words. I'm curious if the author thought how the folks of this small midwestern town treat Hannah is funny or is she making a statement of sorts. However, even in the "happy ending" there are no apologies, no remorse not even excuses, just an immediate change of heart and everyone is accepting of Jacob and Hannah's relationship. Sorry, this one just doesn't work for me.
Family Doctor’s Baby
This is a small town romance with great characters. Hannah O'Leary is a nurse who moved back to Iowa to help her dad because he has cancer. She was the chubby nerd in high school and wasn't popular. Dr. Jacob Matthews returned home to buy the small clinic and be a small town doctor. Hannah tutored him in Biology so he could pass. You have small town gossip, mothers trying to force relationships, steamy chemistry and so much more.
