It started with a drink and ended in a night neither will ever forget.

Calla McClain had done a great number of questionable things in her past, getting drunk at a friend's wedding and winding up in bed with the man she loved should have been a dream come true. Only their one night of mind blowing sex wasn't the only mistake she'd made in her intoxicated stupor.

Be My Baby had me in tears...TEARS PEOPLE!! It was so good. I finished it in one night and believe was so worth the extra shots of espresso today.I could feel all of strong emotions that played out in this book; each perfectly executed and detailed to perfection.

In this novel, Calla and Willa are all grown up and beautiful like their momma, Lily. Calla went off to school and came back a changed woman. Others noticed the change in her but no one knew why. Jared, a childhood friend and Ca

Another 5 Star book from Airicka Phoenix...Of course!!! This author can create really great characters. This is the third book in the series but can stand on its own. You don't have to read the previous books in order to understand, but the previous instalments give you more insight into the characters and their behavior.

Jared Dumont has been in love with Calla McClain ever since they were kids, but things never quite worked out for them back then. Then, a couples of years later, Calla left for university, and while for Jared, her absence made his heart grow fonder, Calla came back a changed person.

Calla used to be witty and sassy, but now she is a mere shell of herself. She is having a hard time dealing with what happened to her at uni

Calla thinks she is damaged goods, not good enough for any man. Dark secrets from her time at college still haunt her. She refuses to tell anyone what happened, not even her sister. Her Jared has loved Calla since they were teenagers but she’s pushed him away time and time again. When he gets a chance to take her to a wedding he makes sure she can’t refuse his invitation.

That one night will change their lives forever. When Calla’s past comes knocking it’s time for

Ms. Phoenix continues the McClain family journey with an amazing story about Calla and Jared. The story is beautifully written in a way that only Airicka knows how. Keeping us hanging on, breaking us, and then putting us back together again...this book was sweet as pie!

When we meet Calla (all grown up and beautiful) there's a hardness there that nobody really knows about. Something in her past has changed her from what she was to this colder person that she is now. Jared, her childhood friend an

Never once in this story could a reader say they were uninterested or bored. Phoenix has once again written another well paced romance. The McClain family is at it again and in ways you'd never expect. Having read the first two books in this series I understood the backstory well but you could have skipped them and jumped in and met Calla right here and still loved the gang. Heart break, devastation, fear, trust, hate and love all wrapped in a pretty little package called Be My Baby! A recommend ...more

Damon and Willa are my favorites, but I did enjoy this. I liked Calla and Jared together and I enjoyed them getting used to each other as husband and wife. Her past drama was sad and seemed realistic. I wish Jared hadn't recently dated Denise, but I did like that he only slept with her once because he realized it wasn't going anywhere. In most other books he would have been getting it regularly until he got with the h. I did think the drunken night they got married seemed very unrealistic. They ...more

Blimey you know how to pack an emotional punch !

Another lovely Story, featuring the McClains of Willow Creek, they are a really tight close knit family, the semantics are a bit odd, but nothing much comes between them.

This is a standalone story, although I recommend reading Sloan and Lily's Book : Forever my Baby. and Cole and Beth's book: Bye Bye Baby. It gives a clearer understanding of not only the main characters but also the peripheral characters.

Yep, another Airicka Phoenix book read within 24 hours. I can't explain it...I'm totally addicted to this series.

You will remember Calla from the other two books, she is Cole and Lily's first daughter. I was a bit worried how this time gap was going to work. But I will be the first to admit that it totally did. In Be My Baby she is all grown up and hiding a dark secret that has changed her from the person she was. Jared you may remember from Bye-Bye Baby, he is Damon's best friend.

Actual rating 4.5

This was another sweet, heartwarming, and touching read. I started this series on a whim because there was something about the cover that kept book 1 in my mind, and I'm so glad I did. With every book I've grown to love the characters more and Be My Baby was a great continuation.

Be My Baby begins quite a few years after where Bye Bye Baby leaves off and centres around Calla's story. I wasn't sure about this development because it skips so many years, but it worked. Calls is fu

***Recieved an ARC for an Honest Review***

Be My Baby By Airicka Phoenix was, wow! I've read the 1st two books in this series which were phenomenal!

Calla McClain has a secret and feels her heart is not open to love.
Calla has always been a spit fire, a wild child, with a quick wit. She's quick to stand up for herself and is fluent in sarcasm.

Calla takes off for University once she graduates High School. She's only gone a few years before she comes back home. Once home, her parents, sister, and

I loved Be My Baby!!! by Airicka Phoenix This is the third book in a series, but can be read by itself. Although once you finish it you will want to read all the books and be waiting anxiously for another one.
Calla is all grown up and has the hots for Jared of all people. Having grown up together, they had school children crushes on each other, but never acted on it. Now that there are hormones and sex drives, the young adults have managed to stay away from each other until now. A simple weddin

This book was given to me as an ARC. This is the second book I get to review. I never thought I would get to do this. I get nervous before reading an ARC in exchange for an HONEST review. I always post a review either on goodreads or amazon. Books that stands out and are considered above 5 stars get a long review. I've written a lot so far. This book was just WOW. It had everything to make it a great book and a recommendation. Strong family ties, first love that can last, it

This book owned me.
Airicka Phoenix writes Calla and Jared's story absolutely beautifully. There was not one moment in this entire book that made me want to stop reading. I could not put this down, but at one point I actually had to stop reading because my eyes were blurred with tears. About halfway through the book I had to message the Author to tell her this: "Oh my god!! Airicka! Oh My God! I am 50% through Be My Baby and I can honestly tell you that in all of my reading in the last 3 years (

this is not an usual family, Calla's family, bur Willia and her seems ok when they growth up, have Calla who has a lovely father and monther who spoil her, also an uncle also a second father of her, a second mother to love her.

It is a growth up story, girl left home and have the study, met someone she may fall into, if success, she may get marry and built up a family, if not, she needs to run agaign and again to repeat it. Calla's first was failed, what given her is a broken heart and lost her

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. This is #3 in the series and I love that I get to read more about this family. It is refreshing to have a mixed up crazy family who's experiences are not all sunshine and roses. I love the chemistry that we still get, as we always do with Airicka's books- but I also liked how although this isn't our first introduction to the family, things still go wrong....because in real life bad things DO happen to good people. And as much as I love to dis ...more

Another good read in this series.

I liked Jared and Calla’s story. They were both good characters and the way they got together, although unconventional, was really sweet. I liked how although they had love each other for a long time, they both had to grow up a bit first. It was also good to see characters introduced in earlier books at a later stage in life. While I enjoyed this story, I am beginning to find the books in this series all a bit predictable. Nevertheless, I would still recommend th

Jared sure knows how to give a compliment, "It’s not the dress.” He struggle to control the beast pacing inside him, the one urging him to claim what belonged to him be damned the consequences. “Christ, I can’t take you when you look like that." I loved the chemistry between Calla and Jared:
"God, we have to stop!” she gasped as he slid out of her. “I’m going to be walking like I spent the weekend riding bareback on a horse.”
Jared chuckled. “Well, there was a lot of riding and I am pretty bare

Where to begin... I'm left somewhat speechless after this book. In a good way. but I'd like to mention that doesn't happen often and I'll probably blunder my way through this review.
I adored the first two books and this one was just as amazing. I found myself laughing and crying and holding my breath alongside the characters. I'm not generally a fan of the genre but something about these books resonates deep within me and i find myself binging on them and unable to put them down. The story is p

Jared and Calla were so entertaining in this book. There are secrets simmering under the surface that neither of them are willing to discuss or address. Well that is until Jared has enough and starts to blow through all of Calla's defenses and proceeds to steal her heart, which it appears was his all along.

Then there is the little matter of getting married in the middle of the night when they are both a little wasty face and neither can remember. It was fun to watch this whole adventure unfold a

"I never told you this, but I am scared shitless of heights. I fucking hate them. But I followed you up that stupid cliff, going higher each time until I was sure I’d crap myself. I wasn’t trying to prove I was brave, or that I was better than a girl. I just didn’t want you to go up there alone. That’s how long I’ve loved you, Calla McClain.”

The Baby Saga keeps getting better and better! I just love how Jared is so in love with Calla and no matter how weird people think

Phoenix never ceases to amaze me with her addicting stories & characters. Each book outshines the last, & this series quickly became one of my favorites. A few of our beloved characters are now all grown up & just as addicting as their parents. Can we get book 4 now?
If you enjoy romance with hot scenes, laughs, & a good pull on those heartstrings you should enjoy this series as much as I have.

I love when I stumble upon a great series. That is exactly how I found this wonderful series. The first book in this series is Always My Baby. I was on my Facebook page and someone posted about Always My Baby. So I looked it up on amazon and bought it right away and stayed up that night and read the whole book. It was fantastic!! I love this series and each book gets better and better. This is definitely a must read series!! I can't get enough of this family.
