There’s a fine line between lust and hate.
I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.
His mouth is.
And the stupid things that come out of it.
But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me…
Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.
And it doesn’t involve talking.
I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?
Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.
Except he left me a little keepsake.
And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.
4 Star Review by Ashley
I was beyond thrilled to see that Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam were teaming up again. These two write romantic comedy like I breathe and this enemies-to-lovers romance had me laughing and shaking my head and fanning myself in equal measures.
There was something so charming about the reformed playboy. Maybe it was the way he interacted with his Bumble. Maybe it was how hard he worked to be his own person. Build his business and not just rely on the fortune of mom and dad. But I mostly think it was the way he treated Kendall. Like a queen. His queen. If only she'd let him be. And Kendall was no slouch. She worked hard for everything. Though she stumbled a time or twenty she always dug deep and did what was necessary to chase her dreams.
Cue a snowstorm. A bottle of wine. Attraction. Giving in. Mayhem. A lack of communication. Misunderstanding. Consequences. Two meddling best friends (whooop Josh and Evie). Some groveling. A truce. A lot of sexy times. Catching feelings. Fears. Another lack of communication. Jealousy. More groveling. Grand gesture...
From start to finish, Surprise, Baby was fun and playful and so sexy. Drew and Kendall, despite all their faults were just so right for each other. Kendall showed him what a family could be. She gave him focus and a future to be hopeful for. In return, he brought laughter and more disorder into her hectic life. It was just what she needed. And that ending was everything these two deserved and so much more.

Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves - even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avirectreader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it's Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She's unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement.
Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she's not in the writing cave you'll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
