Publisher Description


I had the perfect bachelor's life.

No obligations.

No commitments.

The greatest job in the world, all while being paid millions to do it.

Until I became a dad overnight.

My world turned upside down,

I went from ballfields and bars to dirty diapers and bottles.

I turned to my best friend for help but ended up with his little sister.

Now, all I want is the one woman I can't have.

She's the curveball I never saw coming.

The one woman I'm willing to commit to and change my old ways for.

I just have to show her that we can be a family.


Indianapolis was my fresh start.

A new place near my family.

When my brother's best friend ended up with a surprise baby dropped on his doorstep,

I was the perfect nanny for the job.

Everything was falling into place,

If only I could keep my mind and hands off the playboy baller dad.

Working for someone you are attracted to is hard.

But when he's your brother's best friend and you live with him?

Talk about impossible.

Fatherhood changed him, but is it enough to give us a chance at a happily ever after?

Absolutely in Love

I am completely in love with JJ & Riley! Their story sucked me in and I couldn’t put it down. Surprise baby and best friend’s sister are a few of my favorite romance troupes and this book has both. Little Evie steals everyone’s heart from the beginning and really helps the characters grow together. The chemistry between these two is HOT and the mouth on JJ is something else. I really hope we get to see more of this little family in future Indianapolis Lightning books.

You need this story!

Oh my love of books!! Ms. Samatha you have totally made my ovaries explode with this beautiful story!

Justin is the hot playboy who doesn’t have the clue what a meaningful relationship is. He is out on the town after every game meeting new women.

Riley is the sweet sister of Derrick (Indianapolis Lightning Book 1) who is all around the best kind of girl.

When Justin has an unexpected visitor he and Riley meet as she is a huge help for his sweet little girl Evie. A slower burn but off the charts chemistry these two fight their attraction of one another due to all the circumstances that surround their lives.

But when they are tired of fighting their attraction will Derrick accept Justin being with his little sitter? As best friends Derrick and Justin had an agreement, hands off. Or will Riley and JJ risk their family and privacy for the chance at love?

This is the second book in the Indianapolis Lighting Series although it can be read as a stand alone, I recommend reading The Perfect Pitch first.

Well done Samantha, as always an amazing 5 stars!
