The Switched Baby Scandal by Theresa Meyers is Contemporary Romance, with a different theme. I have never read Meyers, and was pleasantly pleased with this book. If you read the description above, you know the theme is about a mixup years before with the switching of two babies.

We meet our heroine, Taylor Lawrence, when she is at the hospital trying to get her blood tests for paternity, since she needs these results when she appears in court. Taylor is fighting her ex-boyfriend, the father of h

Heartwrenching yet truly heartwarming.

With a deep storyline, wonderful endearing characters and the capability to stir every emotion, Theresa Meyers has given us a lovely story that completely captivated me from the first page.

I'll happily admit that as a true romantic who craves a happy ending, Bliss books are part of my staple literary diet; this book has firmly entered the realms as one of my favourites. I was totally invested in Reece and Taylor's journey; they were realistic and strong, ye

OMG! Heartbreaking roller-coaster of emotions. I cannot imagine the gamut of emotions these characters felt (but new to me) author Theresa Meyers had me laughing, crying, and ready to bi*** slap a few people. I love it when I can get drawn in and involved with the characters to the point where I am talking to them. This book got to me. As a parent there is no more scary thought than losing a child. Thankfully I knew going in that there had to be a happy ending but getting there… Break out the ti ...more

This book is so similar to Janice Kay Johnsons book it's not funny. (Wrong Child, pub date 2000, revised and reprinted in 2012). I do not like that. Plus, the writing is no where as crisp as Johnson's.

I don't know how many of you remember those Lifetime Movies, you know the ones that were like "oh my gosh" and you need a box a tissue to get through the movie. Yes, those sappy chick flicks. If there was a book that would be like a Lifetime Movie The Switched Baby Scandal by Theresa Meyers would be that book. It has all the makings of Lifetime Movie.

There are a few things you would find Lifetime Movie:
1) Heartbreak. Hence the need of box of tissue.
2) Scandal. For some

The Switched Baby Scandal. Lord help me but you know going in there's going to be some drama and emotional upheaval with a title like that. And whew, yeah, it's a tear jerker.

Reece was my favorite part of the story. He's been lost in a world of grief after his wife and daughter were killed in a car accident and finding out his biological daughter is out there and alive does him in. He wants to be a part of her life. To get to know her and be t

Pulls your heart strings!!

Just finished reading and still wiping the tears from my face. What a wonderful read!

This was a beautifully written contemporary romance. I found myself so invested in these characters that I felt like when they cried, I cried, when they laughed, I laughed etc. I connected with both Taylor and Reece and really enjoyed reading their story. If you are a fan of true romance you will enjoy this read. Don’t expect a hot sexy read, that is not what this one is about…but it

*ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

As a parent, your over-riding priority is to keep your children safe, happy and healthy. It does not matter how that child came into your life (birth, adoption, etc.) is your child. This is the sentiment that permeates this story...all at once tragic and hopeful.

I could understand the fear and hurt driving both Taylor and Reece. Taylor feared losing the child she knows and loves and hurt for the one she did not have a chance to know.

Parents will do anything in order to protect their child(ren) and that’s all Taylor is thinking about. All Reece wants to do is get to know his daughter but also be there for her emotionally, physically and financially.

Wow this story really tore up my heart. My heart went out to Taylor because she was not able to see her child, play with her talk to her like Reece was able to do with Emily. This storyline is something that is heard of and like in this book the child should not be harassed by th

Being a parent and a spouse I couldn't imagine loosing both my husband and child in an accident. Never hearing them laugh and play. Being alone. That is what Reece lives daily. Now getting a call from the hospital where his daughter was born, saying there was a mix-up and his daughter, the one he raised, was possibly not his biological daughter, gives him a hope he had never thought he'd have. He was going to have a second chance with

I read this summary and knew I had to read the book. Switched babies are a trope that always pulls me in. This one touched my heart and made it ache more than once. I also wondered, as I read the back of the book, how this author was going to be able to show us the emotions that I could only imagine as I read the summary. There are no worries, as she dealt with the subject with a deft hand.

It was particularly gripping because, as the summary says, one of the babies switched has died. Yes, I reac

I pick up this book thinking the story sounding interesting enough but the execution felt short.This whole review is one big SPOILER, BEWARE before continuing reading

I felt like the topic was not explore in its entirety or with the finesse that a story with dead people should have. It was way to convenient that Reece "didn't love" his wife so it was OK to just move on. People can move on after a year without having to say they didn't love the other person. Also for a character that was trying to

Just finished reading this one.

This book had mega potential. The plot and characters had such huge potential for me.

The romance aspect of this book dragged it down for me. I'm a sucker for love. I almost always have to have at least a side romance within a story, it's my passion. However, I disliked it within this story. It was far too insta love for me. We see our main characters instantly fall in lust, and go from lust to love with barely any interaction in such a short period of time despite

In The Switched Baby Scandal by Theresa Meyers, Taylor Lawrence is trying to sue the father of her little girl in order to receive child support. He may have abandoned her when he found out she was pregnant, but he is still the father and has a responsibility, or so she believes. When the DNA results she needs to take to court are being read to her, she cannot believe what they are saying, not only is her ex not the father but she is not the mother either! If she does not find out what really ha ...more

This book had me in tears, had me laughing and wanting to strangle the two main characters.

You can't help but feel the pain for Widower Reece as he struggles to get over the death of both his wife and child a year ago, only to find out the child that he had raised was not his biological child.

Taylor, the woman who has only just discovered the truth, that she has raised someone else's child and not her own, is in tu

I'm always a sucker for books with babies. For books where the guys are total softies when it comes to kids. It's just so cute to see a man, who is usually pretty gruff and tough, be all yielding and lovable. And although most of them are, they usually try to hide it and it's cute when they go soft for the woman they love it just turns me to mush with kids! I know I'm a cheesy ball of sap, but don't tell anyone! Anyway, this book was really good. It's this big confusing scandal thing and it turn ...more

Switched Baby Scandal is the first book in the Scandals of San Sabastian series and what a great start to this series.
This book is not for the faint of heart. The struggles the people go through in this book are heart breaking. I almost cried a few times and I am not a crier. The plot was interesting and delicate and the book was written well. I am glad I picked this one up. If you are looking for a light hearted fun read this is

Heartwrenching is just about the only word that can accurately describe The Switched Baby Scandal.
If you've read the synopsis, you will have gathered the basics of the storyline but you need to actually read the book to garner the romance between Reece and Taylor and the relationship that blossoms between Reece and his little girl.
I really liked how Meyers portrayed Reece - it's so refreshing to see a man struggling with his grief rather than the woman being the one who needs healing.

This is an unimaginable real life story. My heart broke for Reece the most. He had endured so much pain already. Finding out the truth really was a second chance at happiness rather than a spending the rest of his life grieving his lost wife and child. His second chance brings the greatest fear of Taylor's life, losing her daughter Emily. In addition to this Taylor finds out the child she gave birth to is already gone. Reece and Taylor need to combine their joy and fear together and attempt to f ...more

This one was hard to rate for me. I really enjoyed the authors writing style. The plot was interesting, emotionally wrenching and had me tearing up and reaching for the Kleenex. So why only 3 stars? A personal preference for mine, I don't like bitter heroines. :/ Sorry! But there is something about a bitter woman that annoys me to know end. And Taylor is VERY bitter( yes I know, she's been burned a lot in the past). But it was just hard for me to read all her angry inner monologues where she pas ...more
The compelling aspect of this book is its close look at grief and the ramifications of what it really might feel like to be given the wrong baby to take home from the hospital. The love story is gripping because it is set inside this conflict. The little girl feature is sweet but a little like romance novel childern who tend to annoy some readers with precociousness. The heroine and the hero are both good people with a great deal of hurt they are bringing to a relationship.

As a parent this book had the tears flowing!

I had never read a book with storyline before, so when the ARC copies were being offered I was intrigued and signed up in exchange for a honest review. I did enjoy the book and it did have me blubbering like a baby, I did feel that some of the conflict could have been resolved by a simple conversation. That is the only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars.

If you are looking for an emotional read this is the book for you.
