The first time that Dr. Andy Kumar had seen Cadell Glynn—all six feet, four inches of him, tribal tattoos winding around his arms, fingertips deeply callused from years of pressing steel guitar strings, dressed in leather pants and a tee shirt ripped at the neck that let the tattoos on his muscular shoulders peek through, blue-tipped black hair spiraling in curls and swayi ...more

The title of this book is misleading and unfortunate. Secret baby implies that this is a formulaic book and that the heroine has hidden the hero's baby from him and he finds out about it in the first part of the book and the rest of the book is the fallout and how they get back together and become a happy family. Not the case here. The baby is his from a one night stand and the hero has had custody for 8 months before the story starts. This is a book about the hero falling in love with his daugh ...more

I have been following Killer Valentine and was looking forward to Cardell’s story. The band is on a break for now working on new music when Cadell gets sidetracked by someone very special to him that he never knew existed until her mother died. Cadell has a little two year old girl who is in need of a liver transplant. It was really heartwarming to see that this totally badass doping rock star was able to give up the drugs and fight for his little girl’s life. He really had his priorities set an ...more

I sort of read these Rock Stars in Disguise books out of order, but it doesn't really matter because they're all fantastic. I have to say, though, that I really looked forward to finding the time to read Cadell's book. The shy quiet types are always trouble when they open up, and he is no different. His story isn't something we hear much about within the other books, but it is absolutely heart wrenching and thrilling from the moment we meet him in this volume as we watch him wade through the dif ...more

The Rock Star's Secret Baby is more than just a really good story. I learned so many things just by reading this book. We start with Cadell Glynn, the prodigy guitarist for Killer Valentine. Cadell is a heroin addict who quits cold turkey when he suddenly finds himself with a two-year-old daughter, Emily, who is dying from liver failure. Fearful of losing his place in the band if they find out about his daughter, he keeps her a secret.

Dr. Andy Kumar is Emily’s doctor, a pediatric surgeon special

Let start by saying I. LOVE. BLAIR. BABYLON!!! Okay now for the review. Cadell's story is fun, heart-warming and heartbreaking. Blair Babylon does a good job of bringing out many emotions from me. I laughed, I awwwed and I cried. Blair does a good job of making complicated things easy to understand, in this case it's liver disease and transplantation. She also was able to give insight to Hindu and Indian beliefs and religions. Some of these things could become boring if not done right, in my opi ...more

The Rock Star's Secret Baby...

This is Cadell story and what a super fantastic read it is. Cadell has some issues and Andy has crazy flaws that will drive you into berserker world. This book gives you all the feels. It's heartfelt and dramatic. It hits lots of social issues but it's not preachy. Hella angsty and sexy. And yes you will shed some tears. Definitely a worthy addition to the Rock Stars in Disguise series.

Recommends it for: Everybody who loves Romance with sexy love scenes.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the humor in it. And, I loved how hard Cadell worked to overcome his addictions and care for his little girl, Emily. And, Andy was perfect for him and him for her. A wonderful read.

Is Cupid a tiny, very ill, little blond sprite? Is her father really the drug addled, groupie hopping, irresponsible, guitar playing giant from the band Killer Valentine? Is Dr. Andy Kumar really the cold hearted professional that holds tiny Emily's life and Cadell's future as a good father, in her gloved hands?
All of their lives are woven so tightly together. It's natural that dread, hopes and expectations; such strong emotions, become part of the conversations and comfort between Dr Andy and

A secret he has kept from everyone...he has a daughter, Emily. A daughter he only found out about after her mother passed away.

From the first word, I was entranced. All I can say is WOW. The Rock Star’s Secret Baby is the third book in the “Rock Stars in Disguise Series” that I have read and I was just blown away. The depth of the story telling beyond just a love story was what kept me on the edge of my seat while reading.

Cadell Glynn, 6 foot four hunky rock star, is the father to a very ill two year old, Emily. While Emily is waiting for a liver transplant, Cadell is hanging at the hospital, learning all he can about

What a wonderful way to end the Killer Valentine saga. I love all of these books so much. Blair has this amazing ability to deliver in-depth books with completely original, vastly different material each time.

While I fall in love, every time, with the complex characters she weaves, the most impressive thing to me is just how rich the stories are with actual information. She either knows everything about everything or she takes research seriously and to a whole other level. It's refreshing to se

A Review of The Rock Star's Secret Baby (Rock Stars in Disguise: Cadell) (Friends With Benefits - Billionaires in Disguise) by Blair Babylon

Cultural differences - 5+++++ stars

We finally get Cadell's story and it was well worth the wait. It took me a bit to determine that this story actually takes place earlier in the storyline of Killer Valentine, so we've seen parts of his story in Georgie and Xan's. Cadell found out that he had a very sick young daughter, who had been left alone when her mothe

I absolutely love the Billionaire's in Disguise series, and this one tops the rest off beautifully. I love the way Blair Babylon ties in the different cultures, bringing them together and creating stories that will have you not only on the edge of your seat, but rooting for them and hoping that the main characters manage to overcome the prejudices of different cultures. It is easy to overlook the fact that we are all from the human race, and we all bleed blood, even though we celebrate through m ...more

For those who have followed this series you have already met Cadell. He is the hard-core guitar player in the band Killer Valentine. Cadell is not just a rocker he is a Julian rocker. In a previous book, it gave a small insight into the phone call Cadell received about a baby girl, a junky mom and a paternity test.

This was said to be the last of the Killer Valentine series... but I do hope that we connect with these characters again sometime. as I'm missing them already.
I have left writing this review for a few days because of the sentimental feelings of loss when I got to the end... I wasn't ready to let these characters go.

Cadell isn't the guitar player for Killer Valentine and he's carrying around a huge secret from the rest of the band. He's go a daughter. A sick daughter who has evoked changes such as sobering up in Cadell. His dauber Emily is very sick and need serious medical attention. At the hospital Cadell meets Dr Andy Kumar and the attraction is immediate even if Cadell is in papa bear mode and not such a nice person where his daughter is c

As usual, ANYTHING written by Blair Babylon is FANTASTIC, in my opinion. This one was not an exception to that judgement.

Cadell, the lead guitarist for Killer Valentine rock band, was notified about 8 months previous to the opening of this story that he had a baby daughter of about 2 years old. The mother OD on narcotics and left a very sick little girl with a failing liver.
Cadell moved the little girl to an area where he would be able to stop by frequently and she could get the very best medic

Got this book in exchange for a review but also pre-ordered it because it is that good!

Though I am still not sure how to pronounce Cadell (as it Cay-dull or cah-dell or maybe cay-dell?) reading about him and his life was great.
I loved his (mostly) quiet reserved nature that he seems to have compared to his other band mates. It is sad though that he does not think he can tell them about his daughter or Dr. Andy but I guess he has to have some mystery

I did NOT expect Cadell to be so sensitive. By the end of the book, I was in love with him!! He was compassionate, loving, considerate, ethical, and an attentive dad - and fighting his addiction to heroin in a visceral way. In fact, he describes his addiction in such a way that I could feel his pain and his longing for it.

As always, Blair's writing is amazing - compelling, emotional, and engaging. She is a skilled wordsmith. Some of my favorite lines include:

***I was given this ARC for an honest review***I love Blair Babylon's writing. I have read every one of the "Rock Stars in Disguise," and this is the culmination of the series. Parts of it are heartbreaking and parts are maddening. Reading about a young baby with a debilitating disease such as liver failure due to her mother being a heroine addict who dies without telling the father that he has a child is despicable. When Cadell does find he's a dad to a sickly baby he immediately stops using he ...more

You can always count on Blair Babylon to grab your heart and give a little twist. So far she has made me fall in love with every man she has written and Cadell, the lead guitarist for Killer Valentine, is no exception. Faced with a terminally ill toddler he didn't know he had, instead of falling back into drug addiction he has cleaned himself up and fallen hopelessly in love with his little girl and the doctor trying to save her life. You will learn the good and the bad of the American healthcar ...more
