Love has no expiration.

The morning Beth packed her bags and walked out of Cole’s life was the day he swore the only girl for him would be the six year old who called him daddy. He didn’t have time for love, not between raising his baby girl and trying to figure out what the hell he was going to do with his life. But fate has a funny way of coming around and kicking you whe

Honesty with this author is always sooooo easy. Amazing read.
Morgana Phoenix has done it again. For those who have read Forever His Baby, then you know the McClain brothers. Those of you who haven’t, then no problem. This can be read as a standalone.
This is the story of Cole and Beth. This has to be one of the greatest second chance stories I’ve ever read.
Our two main heroes have been in love for a long time, but their own demons have kept t

Well, it's no surprise I'm one of Morgana's biggest fans. There isn't a book of hers I don't love. This second book of the baby series was just as great as the first. There is never enough time in the day to read when it comes to her books.

This book through me for a loop. Here I thought it was just going to be a love story about Cole and Beth and the hard times they went through causing their 4 year separation. No, there was this adorable little boy that was thrown in the mix. The things that t

I read the first book in the series, Forever His Baby in one sitting and was SO pumped to see that there was a second book in the series…oh and now a third one!

I am a firm believer in things happen for a reason. I think this book is a prime example of that exact sentiment.

You will remember Cole from the first book. He is the father to Calla, he and Lily’s daughter. While Lily was pregnant, Cole dated throughout college and even stayed together afterwards. After college, they move back to Cole’s

I read the first book in this series and was seriously blown away, so I was anxious and excited to start this book to find out what happened to Cole and Beth, two characters who were introduced in the first book. I was worried the book wouldn't be as good as the first, because there's always something so magical about the first book in the series, but I didn't have to worry about that because this book was absolutely stunning!! Beautiful and heartfelt. I give it two thumbs up!

This series, oh my, this series…

My first look into this baby saga was the latest book, ALWAYS YOUR BABY. While reading other reviews, the general theme was that everyone was so excited to finally see Damon’s book and after reading BYE-BYE BABY, I can see why.

This book belongs to Beth and Cole, two people who have loved one another for years but didn’t tru

A really lovely storyabout hope, love, friendship and second chances.

Just loved catching up with Sloan and Lily, Calla sounds like a lovely well adjusted little girl, with 3 parents who simply adore her. We also get to meet Willa, Calla's little sister, very quiet and reserved but also an all seeing all thinking little girl. She has all their hearts.

We find out that Beth; Cole's girlfriend since College, who followed him back to Willow Creek once they worked out Calla was his biological child; l

I think I preferred this to book 1. I'm not usually one to buy ebooks, however I took a gamble on Forever His Baby and after loving it I couldn't wait to read this follow up.

It definitely didn't disappoint.

This book was full of heart, emotion, and loveable characters. I fell in love with Cole in book one so I'm glad we got to see him in his own book, and got to know him better. Just like Sloan, he is a good, respectable guy who has a big heart and you can't help but love him. His actions are gre

I didn't think it was possible to love these characters any more than I already did....but I was wrong! I was just reminded why Phoenix's stories always have me coming back for more. If you have not read Forever His Baby then you are missing out! That is after all where it all began.
Bye-Bye Baby went back & gave us a lil' of their pasts & slammed us right back where we wanted to be without missing a beat. Must. Have. More. NOW!

Another good read in this series but I think I liked the first book better.

This story follows Cole and Beth several years after the events of Forever His Baby. Beth left Cole after he proposed and she got scared. A big misunderstanding has kept them apart for the past four years and it is only an unlikely accident that temporarily reunites them. Neither of them have gotten over each other and it isn’t long before old feelings resurface. Just as they seem to be figuring things out, a whole new le

I loved Forever His Baby. I mean, love love loved it. I honestly thought that Sloan was the new, absolutely amazing book man in my life. Morgana was just tricking me...getting me hooked on the McClain boys....

Then, she re-introduced me to the wonderfully, beautifully, broken, sexy-as-all-hell, Cole McClain. In Forever His Baby, even though Cole played a huge role in the plot of the story, he wasn't "there" much. In my opinion, a whole lot less in comparison in every way to his brother Sloan. In

Bye Bye Baby by Airicka Phoenix is the 2nd book in the Baby Saga. It takes place 6 years after the first book and it focuses on Cole and Beth. The story begins with Cole and Beth broken up and not even talking. Until Cole gets a call that Beth is in the hospital. Cole rushes to her and convinces her that she needs his help. Both of them are afraid of getting hurt again and they have to learn how to trust each other again.
The story was well written and really drew me in. I likes Forever His Baby

A little underwhelmed with this one...

I was super excited to get back to Willow Creek and read more about Cole & Beth (as well as Sloan & Lily) but the build up to them "coming together" was killer... I wanted to press the fast forward button a couple of times because I felt like it dragged in places.

I liked Cole & Beth, liked what they did for Damon but... things seemed to fall into place a little too easily for me where he was concerned. Yes, they had to put up with the jerk-face

I really enjoy all the books I have read by Morgana Phoenix, which is basically all of her books. They are well written, sexy, and amazing. Bye-Bye Baby was one of those books that I could not set down until I finished it. I loved the conflicts that were there from the beginning and the ones that were introduced. I loved the characters as well, and how they developed from the beginning. The ending was amazing and happy, but it did leave me hanging just a little. I can't wait to read the rest of ...more

I loved Forever His Baby that's why when Bye-Bye Baby came out! I just had to read it too!

And I am happy to report that this book is as good as Forever His Baby! I caught myself several times trying to hold off my tears! This is one emotional book. What's good about this book is that not everything is focused on Cole and Beth. I mean, I love Cole and Beth even if there are time I just want to knock their heads for being stubborn, but the little man which plays a very big factor why Cole and Beth

You don't mess with Beth and her pizza, "I'll buy another effing carpet. Give me the Damon pizza!" She snapped..." Cole that boy isn't much for subtlety, "his eyes twin pits of hell, hot and ravenous. "When did you last have a c*** inside of you?" The boy is also a bossy man in the bedroom totally a hot turn-on, "take him out." She didn't hesitate. Her hands lowered quick as they tore open his belt, then the snap and zipper."

Second chance romance? I'm a sucker for it every time. Second chance romance written by Airicka Phoenix? You couldn't keep me away. There's a reason she's an auto-buy author for me, and this emotion-filled story is just one more example of her fantastic writing. Featuring characters with depth, a plot that snatches you up from page one and doesn't let go, and enough drama and angst to have you frantically flipping pages, Bye-Bye Baby will tug at your heart not only for Cole and Beth, but even mo ...more

Beth Doan and Cole McClain have been an item four years ago, but that was before Beth decided to leave Cole the morning after he proposed to her. Cole has been heartbroken ever since and trying to get over Beth, but in vain. But a phone call from a hospital prompts him to make the three-hour drive to see Beth, who suffered severe injuries from a fire in her apartment complex.

You know you are reading a good book when your emotions are on a hormonal rollercoaster. I went from feeling sorry for Cole and Beth to wanting to smack them both then crying and wanting to smack them again. At one point I had to try and explain to a male co worker how I went from being into reading to bawling my eyes out in .5 seconds. This book was a great addition to Forever his Baby. Lily and Slone are happy in their home with Calla and Willa. Cole has his own place doing his lawyer thing Be ...more
Wow! This story proved with enough love and effort that even the most unusual blended family can thrive and grow. Cole has a daughter, Calla, with his best friend, Lily, who happens to be married to his brother, Sloan. Lily and Sloan also have a daughter, Willa. Add Beth, Cole's college sweetheart to the mix and Damon, a little boy Beth rescued from some of the worst child abuse ever and you wonder how can this possibly work out?

Oh Beth and Cole, the beginning of this book really pissed me off! I could not believe how Cole lost Beth and then had no choice but to try and move on while putting his daughter and family first.

I admire the way this mish mashed family came together to make the best life for the kids possible. By the time Beth and Cole come back together they fight the old hurt to come back together. Along the way they find strength in each other and a new life better than they ever envisioned.

Bye-Bye Baby is the second book in the Baby Saga series by Airicka Phoenix. Again, another solid book by this author that had lots of twists and turns. The characters were well developed and well thought out with lots of depth, emotion and chemistry. Looking forward to more books in this series and more by this author.
