One night. One man. And then they’d go their separate ways.
At least, that was her plan…
Some one-night stands are just that: one-night stands… but for transplant physician Addison Rowe, it means a baby nine months later and a story she’s stuck to about being a single mother – by choice.
Besides, after last year’s scandal involving her colleague, Dr. Harlow James, Addison’s got a professional reputation to protect.
But when Jordan O’Halloran returns to New York after a year spent building schools in Southeast Asia, Addison will need to decide whether maintaining her reputation is more important than finding true love.
But first, she’ll have to navigate through a maze of family expectations—and her own—and an ex-girlfriend who hasn’t yet let go of her first love.
It’s the last thing I expect to see: a positive result on my pregnancy tests… all three of them.
That’s what I get for having a one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger thinking no one would ever know.
But when I can’t track him down, I come up with the perfect story… something about choosing to become a single mother via a sperm donor. That way, I get to keep my immaculate professional reputation intact. Besides, after everything my colleague Harlow James had to go through during her divorce when she fell for a man so much younger than her, the last thing my office needs is another scandal.
There’s also my Filipino mother who thinks I’m perfect in every way… well, except for the part about finding a man.
When the owners of the bar told me that someone had left a business card for me a year earlier, I knew there was only one woman who’d do that—the smart and beautiful doctor I met the night before I left for Southeast Asia to build schools for a nonprofit.
But just when I figure maybe Addison wants to keep in touch, the last thing I expect is for her to say that I’m the father of a beautiful baby girl who has my green eyes and copper hair.
Now all I want is for us to work, no matter what happens. Or even if we don’t work out, I’ll never abandon my little girl. I just didn’t count on the ex-girlfriend who hasn’t yet accepted that we’re over.
