I've been called wild. Dirty. Untamed.
I moved to the woods to get away from the bullsh*t of the city. People there don't understand a man like me.
I work hard, and my hands are as calloused as my heart.
And nothing's gonna change that.
But now I've met Harper.
And my whole f*cking world has changed.
But this girl keeps running.
I need to make her stay because she's having

Timber: The Bad Boy’s Baby is book one in The Mountain Man’s Babies series by Frankie Love. I’ve read a bunch of the books in this series but have no idea how I ever skipped over the first book. So I decided I needed to fix that right away. Although this wasn’t my favorite of the series, I enjoyed it.

Jaxon (Jax) Lane lived in the city and shared a business with his partner. He was definitely popular with the ladies. They just wanted him and what he could do for them. So who was he to turn them

I was on holiday as I was reading this so my heart wasn't fully into it!! There was a ton of sex in this book which my hubby kept peaking over my shoulder to see what I was reading! Now he thinks I read very "dirty porn!!!" Gah!!! Why did he take interest in one of my smuttier reads?!!! He thinks I'm a perv now! Lmao! That's really all I have to say at the moment!!!!! I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either!!
It seems that I've been reading a LOT of lumberjack alpha men lately. Or at least ones who look like them with the full on beards and the flannel and the manly man thing going on. I don't think it is limited to just romance books either. I've been watching baseball recently and it looks like the players are all sporting full beards. I think the Chicago Cubs have over 50% of the players looking like lumberjacks. I never really liked beards on a man, but after reading these books and watching some ...more

Insta everything and some alpha lumberjack with naive heroine but still very enjoyable to read. This author is new to me and I know that I'll return to her.

Whenever Jax and Harper are alone together it's like a bad porn, both in dialogue and behavior. There were several times I just wanted to quit and start banging my head against the wall, it was that bad from time to time. But when they weren't alone, it was a half decent book.
Jax and Harper. Harper is getting away to her uncles cabin after her ex dumps her a week before the wedding. She is 21 and very sheltered so she is unprepared for Jax. Her car stutters to a stop in the snow storm just before his cabin and Jax isn't one to say no to seducing a pretty girl. In fact that's what got him in trouble in the first place, forcing him to live in the wilderness. What starts as a night of fun and firsts for Harper, evolves into something more when it turns out that Harper i ...more

A nice sheltered religious girl runs to her uncle's cabins in the mountain and get stuck in the snow. She meets a self-identified man-whore to whom she give her virginity! He sleeps with her within an hour of meeting and then leaves her on the floor of his cabin and then goes up to sleep alone in his loft! WTF! The discussion of his "wood" is more than girl can take. Little storyline between the constant sex scenes.

This truly escapism at its finest. A reader should be prepared to suspend all co

How on earth did I even read this!?

Trust me I was questioning myself and my choices the whole time I read this book.

It went on and on and on and on, and the characters were stupid and immature and ridiculous. The whole story was horrible. The premise would be ok in an over the top cheesy kind of romance way, but this book made it horrible.

Also, I'm not allergic to sex scenes, I'm fine with it; people have sex. But, what I could not stand was every other scene was sex. It made this book so unp

The biggest turnoff for was how the characters spoke. Annoyed the crap out of me!

Though I enjoy a story where the man defends his woman from even her own snotty family, if need be. Sadly this man's character was under cut by some of the language the author chose. This guy was supposed to be a player, a womanizer, a lumberjack, alpha-male type, a manly-man... He fell short for me.

The young woman was worse. She was to childish for my tastes. I understand living a sheltered life, but this was to

Where was my insta love?!?
Lots of push and pull... hated that!
Ironically this is probably a more realistic story of what would happen if your one night stand came back and told you she was having triplets...
But I don't want realistic!! I wanted insta love!!
Oh well.
Over all safe read

Jaxon the typical one nighter, and leave them rule. Well eventually gets you a bad reputation, affecting life and job, just hasn't worked out well. Then by a Chance of circumstance, an angel appears at his door on a snowy night, blessing? Depends on how you look at it, but can change everything. Great story, loved it❤

This could've been a higher rated read for me if the sex scenes were more realistic and the main female character wasn't so annoying. That being said though there are aspects of the relationship in the story between the main characters that I did enjoy and I found similarities between myself and the main female character. There also could've been less swearing in the story.

ok, I knew I had read a very similar story recently, it was Mistletoe Mountain, that I was thinking about??! funny how that worked out??! giggles! ... I must say that I prefer Mistletoe Mountain over Timber ... but they are both very similar a hot, steamy, hunking man living in a cabin all by his lonesome ... snow times, prefect weather to meet a mountain hot man ... lady gets stuck in their area, must stay in their cabin overnight, hint hint, no clue what might happen next??! giggles!! ... goes ...more

too stupid to breathe heroine meets angry man-ho who likes to drop the Eff bomb for no reason.

Harper doesn't grow. doesn't have any character arc. she blithely goes from one caretaker to another. she gains no life skills except the bedroom tango.

Jax is a crude, selfish jerk whose idea of "being there" leaves a lot to be desired.

secondary characters are wooden and unrealistic.

not even sure it qualifies for 2 stars.

3.5 stars about a rollercoaster! This book has more ups and downs and back and forth than I have read in a long time.

Jax knows what he wants and that's a life alone in the woods and Harper...where do I start. She is the most naive and sheltered character I have ever read. (To the point where she is almost annoying to the reader). These two were like oil and water unless they were having sex.

I didn't like the main characters. Neither one of them made any sense. Their kid probably won't be very bright. Also, for the sake of fiction I overlook heat of the moment "Oops, we forgot to wear a condom" occurrences, but premeditated sex warrants at the very least a short conversation about the need for protection, especially when the guy admits to being a slut.

DNF'd this one early. I'm glad it was Unlimited.

Shy and naive, Harper finds herself stranded in the middle of nowhere one night. After being dumped by her fiance, she decided to take some time away and stay at her uncle's cabin. Instead, she ends up knocking on Jaxon's front door for shelter after her car breaks down in the middle of the road during a blizzard. Things quickly heat up and it doesn't take long before Harper finds herself in Jaxon's bed.

What started off as a one-night stand gets a whole lot complicated when Harper finds herself

WOW. talk about two completly diffrent people. Jax lives in a remote cabin in the woods, self isolation after he slept wth the wrong girl. He did what he did and left the city to save his company that him and his friend started. So you know that deep down Jax is a great guy, In comes Harper, a young woman from an exteme religous family. Her fiance said God told them that Harper was not for him a week before the wedding. Needing to get away Harper goes to a family cabin and get stuck in the snow. ...more

If you are looking for a lot of sex in a book, this one for you. And there definitely was some really hot moments, but the main characters left something to be desired. For one thing - it was Harper going from strict religious upbringing and sheltered life to sex freak in a span of hours since meeting Jax that got on my nerves, because of being TOO unrealistic.

Writing style is good, very contemporary, easy to read, will try something else by this author to see if a different plot ends with diffe
