Blah, this book was a snooze fest of epic proportions.

First off the heroine's name is Calypso, um seriously?? All I kept picturing was...

Crew is a manwhore who bangs Vegas dancers every night. Calypso is the neighbor that is kept awake by said banging every night. The book opens with Crew getting a BJ from his previous nights hookup, when a knock comes at his door and he is given a baby that's his from a previous hook up.

Calypso use to belong to some commune (cough cult) and left after having (

“I can read body language like a book, and, Calypso, the way you look at me, the way you move around me, tells me everything I could possibly need to know right now.”

“Which is . . .?”

“That you really fucking want me to kiss you.”

Vegas Baby is an interesting read, which makes me wonder did I like it or not. I picked it up because I'm drawn to Single Dad's, total sucker for them, but this was a different take with a different twist. Single Dad took a less prominent role

Oh my. I absolutely loved this! It was exactly what I have been wanting to read - something that's not too deep, tells a great story, shows us a change in the characters.

Crew and Calypso seem like such opposites, but they work so well together. Add in baby Emme, and I melted.

This is something I'd gladly read again

Once again Winter Renshaw has done it. Yet another out of the ballpark addition to her ever growing list of awesome books! ARC generously provided to give a review afterwards. Can’t say enough about how she delivered such a unique storyline a girl who leaves a place called Shiloh Hills and Vegas Poker playing playboy, named Crew and Calypso, love those names, got together and the many hurdles thrown their way.

Calypso has a neighbor she has labeled as the "jackhammer" because do I really need to

I'm sorry... I can't even...I just can't!
Hero is a manwhore? Well who cares? Half the heroes are. But heroine listens to him banging a new girl every night. Nope. Cringing already.
Goes from manwhore to super dad, who are you trying to kid?
Heroine named calypso. Well that does it! I refuse to read a book about a heroine who reminds me of something like a cross between a sea monster and a mango.
I just can't even.....arghhhh!

I received this book as a bonus when I purchased Heartless by the same author. Interesting plot and romance of two people who are polar opposites with a few messy twists and turns, all set in the bright lights of Vegas.

Cute and (mostly) lighthearted romance read, but it lacked the depth I was hoping for (and usually hope for in a romance).

Was it me, or did they not once say "I love you" to each other??? Pretty sure that never happened. Not a fan of that lack in a book about love.

So this was my first book by this author. It was a light easy read and I love a single dad story. But…..it did have issues. Mostly in the fact that things were brought into the story but never really resolved. Calypso went back home to deal with her family but it fizzled out. I didn’t quite get what she wanted to accomplish by going home. Crew confronted his crappy parents but again I think this needed more development. The oddest thing was the ending. It wrapped up really fast it was kind of li ...more

Winter strikes again! Another wonderful story from Winter Renshaw :) It never ceases to amaze me how amazing and captivating her stories are and Vegas Baby is no exception. The characters, the story, and the writing in general, from start to finish, all are still swirling around my head.

Calypso isn't your typical heroine. She owns her own used bookstore complete with its own unique twist. She grew up on a commune where 'everyone is family'. And in her short twenty four years on this earth, she

This is how I felt reading this book. 1 and half stars for the description of the cute baby.

1. The characters have zero chemistry.

2. The sex scenes are dull and boring and should have just been fade to black. The author keeps alluding to the fact that this guy is a manwhore and he has sex all night apparently but I never read one exciting sex scene with this hot hunk.

3. (view spoiler)

“You fight for the ones you love. Always.”

Another winner from this author, whom I’ve followed right from her first novel.

Crew lives for poker games and showgirls. He lives in the moment. In the present. He rarely plans ahead. His life is turned upside down when a former hook-up comes knocking on his door, and hands over the baby she had after spending a weekend with him.

Calypso was raised in a hippie commune. She escaped to Vegas a few years earlier, after being disillusioned with love and the c

I have to say that this book was not what I expected. The title made it seem like it would be more about manwhores and mistakes. Don't get me wrong, it has some of that but this is not the main premise of the book.
Crew was definitely a one night stand kind of guy, and Calypso was the complete opposite of that type of girl. Both come from extremely different backgrounds, but have the same kind of dysfunctional issues. They become friends, and then lean on each other for that friendship.

Calypso << what an awesome name. I loved it from the first time i saw it.
Calypso as a character? Absolutely loved her! She's so down to earth and not high maintenance that it's hard not to love her from the first time you meet her.

Crew, i loved him so much its un real.
His life gets turned upside down and he doesn't panic.. well not that much ;) and he just goes with the flow. So naturally as if it was always meant to turn out like that.

The whole story line was something new to me, I'm happy to s

He is used to living life in the fast lane until he gets a surprise dropped at his doorstep that will have him changing his reckless ways.

I really enjoyed this book. 5+ stars all the way! It was a refreshing change of pace from all the over the top alpha males, billionaires, dark romances, etc I've been reading. (Don't get me wrong I love all that but it's nice to take a break sometimes!) Crew is a very down to earth, go with the flow hero. Even when a baby is dropped at his doorstep he only freaks out for about half a second. Then he calls in reinforcements in the form of his twin sister and becomes a loving, protective, insta da ...more

Just finished reading Vegas Baby! I have to say that it was just brilliantly fantastic! Before I start though, I have to say the names are fantastic! I do get a bit fed up when reading others authors books because I'm fed up of seeing common names in place like Chase! I love that all ur names are unique!
I love how Crew just stood up to the plate with baby Emme! Even though he didn't have a clue about babies. Even though in the beginning he was a major player he loved his daughter!

Calypso is his next door neighbor who is tired of being kept awake by the constant banging of his headboard against their shared wall. When a fling from Crew's past comes back with shocking delivery, it's now crying that's keeping Calypso awake.

What starts out as a neighbor trying to be helpful turns into so much more. Both Crew and Calypso have pasts that keep them from th

This was a really good book. I loved Crew and how he dealt with the whole instant dad issue. He really stepped up to the plate. I also like how he cared for Calypso. She was dealing with some issues from her past and was hesitant to start anything with Crew because of that. I liked Calypso too. She was so good with Emme and I like how she resolved her past. I liked Crews sister Noelle too. One thing I love about Winter’s books is that she really makes the hero the pursuer in the relationship. Ca ...more

Loved this story of Crew and Calypso! Crew is a professional poker player/manwhore. He is loving the single life until one morning a past one night stand shows up on his doorstep with his 4 month old daughter. I loved how Crew steps up and becomes a Dad. No freak out, he just deals with the challenge ahead and completely falls in love with this tiny mini version of him. Calypso is a book store owner/hippie chick. The two meet in her store and realize they are neighbors. Calypso helps
