Book Review: Call Her Mine
Two besties and a baby make for an instafamily and a surprising romance in a delightful series by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of the Sugar Lake novels.
Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.
Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.
But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after… just not one either of them expects.
I absolutely loved this book. I listened to it with the audio narration. Which I would say was a really enjoyable way to experience this book. This is because my husband was forced to listen to it as well. Well only for a little while as he got into the story as well. We would find ourselves laughing together.
The sexual tension between Aurelia and Ben was hot. I like Ben's family have to agree that when these two finally gave into these feelings and became a couple that I said, "it is about time". They both knew that they wanted each other but they kept skating around each other and dropping innuendos. Aurelia is correct that a handsome man going gaga for a baby is a turn on. Baby Bea won my heart.
The good-natured ribbing that Ben's sisters gave him had me laughing the whole time. I can't wait to read the other books in this series. In fact, I already downloaded book two. If you love best friend romances with humor, you need to pick up a copy of Call Her Mine.
