This was simply a pleasure to read. Whilst very light on the sexy content (which based on the storyline is no bad thing) it has a simple yet captivating storyline, loveable frustrating characters and some real touching, intimate, heartfelt moments. Whilst some pregnancy/baby plots air on the far-fetched side, this didn't.

Carter Anderson is going through a pretty rough time; his brother Ben has been killed whilst on tour in Afghanistan, his Dad is struggling to recover from a stroke and he has t

This is a romance that readers can just fall into. With a strong direction, well defined and marvelously written characters, and a story driven plot; His Billion Dollar Baby, is a read that gives romance lovers so much more than their money's worth.

Gwen Radley has been through a lot in her life, and with the tragic death of her unborn baby's father leading to her unceremonious introduction to his uber-wealthy family...let's just say that things are about to get a lot more interesting for our gi

Carter - you are a jerk. You remain a jerk for a very, VERY long time. But the grovel almost makes up for it. Almost.

Gwen - you deserve better than a judgmental jerk like Carter.

Now that I've got that off my chest, I can move on to the review. I enjoyed this book for the most part, but I swear, Carter moodswung/condemned Gwen the way a woman pregnant with twins moodswings. And I know how bad that is, having done it. But it was Gwen who really made me fall in love with this book. Her physical th

'Desire fired in his chest, stroking his passion and squelching any well-laid plan to stay away from her.'

5 stars ~ A feel-good, slow-building, sweet romance!

Lea Nolan has created quite the situation for the lead characters in His Billion Dollar Baby. This story immediately starts with an overall sad tone. Gwen goes to the funeral of her baby's daddy with a specific purpose. She hadn't known Ben very well before he left for another tour of duty. She ends up meeting his older brother Carter at the funeral, and the plot gets pretty tense from there. Carter immediately doesn't trust Gwen at all. He thi

I love that "unexpected baby" trope. With "His Billion Dollar Baby" Lea Nolan delivered exactly what I wanted. She pulled my heart strings with Gwen's back story. While she had a very tough childhood, she fought for her future and didn't expect it to be handed to her on a silver platter. In fact, when Carter tried to hand that platter to her, she backed away.

To begin with, Carter was a suspicious jerk. But he was one who could LEARN to follow his heart. He was badly hurt by his gold-digger of an

I really enjoyed reading this story. The first few pages drew me in, and I didn't want to put down the book when it was time to go to work. Thankfully I worked a short shift, and was able to pick up where I left off.

The story starts out with Gwen attempting to place a ultrasound picture in Bens casket. Ben had died while serving in Afghanistan. She wanted Ben to know he was going to be a father. Afterwards she tripped and her purse fell, scattering the contents onto the floor. That's not how sh

When a novella manages to make you cry in the first chapter you know there's a good chance you'll have a winner on your hands. This entire story had me on an emotional roller coaster - very hard to do in under 200 pages. All the characters involved in the story were amazingly well written. I cheered for them to find a way through everything with every word. This was more than a book about two people falling in love - it was about the power one person has to change the course of an entire family ...more

This was such a fun read. Not that it was a humorous book, but rather it was a classic romance theme that I love to read. Gwen is a PT at Walter Reed and has a "before I ship out" fling with Ben Anderson resulting in a baby. When Ben is killed overseas, Gwen goes to his funeral and meets his brother Carter. Cue the troubled alpha male who distrusts women because of a bad experience in the past. Gwen is a former foster child trying to keep her head above water, in other words the perfect gold dig ...more

A nice easy read.

In the midst of all the surprise baby books I love to find books like this that have a heroine up front and honest.

Gwen is extremely honest and wants to help people. Her job as a physical therapist at Walter Reed proves that. Carter has been burned by a greedy ex-wife and it shades all relationships. The few things Gwen drew out his shell were very intriguing and I wish there was more time devoted to "nice" Carter.

I will definitely check this author out again.

2.5 ⭐️⭐️ So I have had this sitting on my iPad for ages. I mean a really long time. When I read it it felt like one of the books that I might have read and liked years ago, but the story just fell short for me in so many ways. Like a blast from the past, but just not as good as the plethora of options available today within this genre. The story and writing were not smooth or sophisticated in any way.
★¸. • * ° * ༺*Blanka*༺*°°*•.¸. ♥★

It was an okay read for me, however nothing special. Seemed like your everyday HQ novel. You have a filthy rich ahole hero, your typical headstrong, somewhat very naive heroine in this case pregnant heroine. They were a lot of things I liked about her but it's just as I mentioned in the HQ novels once they start getting some, they get clingy and lose the headstrong-ness.

Despite the uncalling-title, for me at least, this book is totally worth my time.
Simply to say, this book shows me there always more sides to intrepret acts or talks of people. Be wise to choose which sides you're looking from.

Another great book to read!

This book is an easy read and I enjoyed it, but it lacked depth of the characters and it seemed a little rushed. I like the plot and how the story developed, but I just was expecting a little more, because it had potential with that description.
Still easy read, and a nice story.

Gwen had worked hard to leave her past behind as a foster child. She had finished college and worked as a physical therapist at Walter Reed helping to rehabilitate wounded soldiers. That’s where she had met Ben Anderson and they had become friends. Gwen had never dreamed that she would be involved in a one night stands with too much drinking that ended with an unexpected pregnancy.

He has been deceived before can she make him see that she is not like his ex-wife that she doesn’t care about money all she cares about is him. Will she be able to forgive him before she moves away?

Wow, I can’t believe that I have waited this long to read that amazing, fun, emotional story about two characters that were meant to be together. I love reading stories in which it has to deal with an ignorant man that thinks that a loving woman is only after the family fortune. This was a captivating

Gwen Radley works at Walter Reed Hospital helping wounded soldiers recover from their injuries during physical therapy. During one of her sessions she meets an outgoing, funny, and kind man, Ben Anderson. He would be returning to active duty as soon as he met all his required physical needs, it would be his third tour. Once he completed treatment, like all the other soldiers, she thought that would be the last of it.

I started this book right before Memorial Day weekend & found the subject matter, by Lea Nolan, rather fitting for that. This was a great short read that had a little different spin than the books I've read as of late.

Gwen Radley is a Physical Therapy that had a one night fling with a former patient, Ben Anderson. There was a mutual attraction between the 2 but they knew that it wasn't something that would be more than casual, Ben was on his way back to fighting for his Country. While Ben was aw

This book has a lot going for it--the premise has promise, the characters have some depth, and did I mention the cover? Such lovely abs. :) The idea of falling for the brother of your deceased baby daddy--especially when your relationship with that brother starts off so totally wrong-footedly and you seem to have nothing whatsoever in common with him--soooo much potential for delicious drama!

O.M.G. words cannot describe how much I love this book. I was hooked and it took me everything just to put the book down to cook and clean!

Gwen is a great girl. she grew up in foster care, and had a hard life. She went to college and now is a first year physical therapist. she is doing good for herself. She is not dating and never has one night stands. There was this one guy who caught her attention and she took it.

This was a very well written book with fantastic characters. I enjoyed reading this from the beginning to the end. Gwen is a good person who just happens to come from an unstable background. When she finds that she's carrying the child of a soldier (Ben) she slept with the night before he left for deployment is now deceased, she figures the right thing to do is to at least let him know that he's left behind a part of himself by slipping a sonogram into the casket with him.

His Billion Dollar baby by Lea Nolan would be the perfect beach read if your looking for something cozy for a long summer day. This book has some substance, but still provides a brief lift from reality.

Gwen had a one night stand with a soldier not having a clue how much this was going to change her life. She liked the soldier, they had fun, but there was no real feelings on either of their sides. This didn't stop them from making a baby that night and now he's g

Please note this review may contain spoilers.

Doing something she’d never done before, Gwen indulged in a one-night-stand with a former patient before he was deployed. That one night resulted in a pregnancy, but Ben was killed in action before finding out he’d fathered a child. Preparing to raise the baby on her own, she attends his funeral to slip a photo of their unborn child in his coffin, but when she bumps into his very wealthy family, her secret is revealed.

Lea Nolan couldn’t read until the third grade. After a lot of hard work she finally got the hang of it and quickly learned the best way to get out of doing chores was to tell her parents she was reading. Soon she was hooked, devouring books by Roald Dahl, Judy Blume, C.S. Lewis, and J.R.R. Tolkien, and graduated to those by V.C. Andrews, Stephen King, and Anne Rice.
