I need to forget. I need an escape.

Only one person isn't falling for my reputation as the NHL's Golden Boy; she captured my attention the minute she called me out for snooping through my best friend's house. She didn't want to hear my reason — she only wanted to playfully give me a har

Hayden Holmes. You won my heart. I knew you would. Before I started this series, I was asked, out of the Three Blind Dates, who would I choose? The Suit, The Rebel, or The Jock. Not knowing any of them before reading the story, of course, I chose The Jock. He didn’t win. I wasn’t disappointed. I wasn’t upset with how that story ended, I think it was perfect. And now I finally got my Jock’s story. And again, Meghan Quinn you are a Fricken Rockstar Author. Your writing is fla

Hayden Holmes is a character I was dying to read about. He did not disappoint! Unfortunately, this book had something I hate in it and I really struggled with the last half. I loved the beginning and would love to be able to rate it higher, but I just can’t. Meghan Quinn is an amazing writer and her stories always make me laugh. This story had some giggles, but a little more of a serious one.

Her voice is meek with a hint of desperation, like she’s been waiting all her life for this one kiss, for my lips to be pressed against hers. And for one of the first times in my life, I’m scared. I’m scared of what this kiss might do to me, of how it will change me as a man, because Adalyn isn’t just any girl. She could be THE girl for any lucky son of a bitch. No doubt in my mind she’s someone you only come across once in a lifetime, and f

Reading this series, I'm not ashamed to say that I was eagerly anticipating the story of Hayden Holmes. He was just such a sweetheart in Three Blind Dates and although he was obviously not a match for Noely, I was super interested in finding out who would own his heart. I'm happy to report that not only was the woman who owned him worthy, but I fell in love with her almost as hard as I did with him. At least for the first 40% of the book. Between the laughs and swoons, I was so in love with this ...more

I was so excited to read this book, cause I've loved Hayden since his first appearance in Three Blind Dates.

Hayden is a professional hockey player and goes back to his home town during his off season. There he meets Adalyn. They hit it off instantly and I was rooting for them at the beginning. I loved their relationship and their banter. Hayden is one of my favorite H's of all time. He's so loyal, sexy, patient and a true gentleman. He treats Adalyn with so much respect and tenderness, my heart

We met Hayden in Three Blind Dates. From the first moment, he was special and I knew Meghan Quinn would write a doozy of a book for him. This was a man who had class, determination and old school charm.

Well, those old school ways get tested time and time again when you are flying down the ice working to capture the Stanley Cup.
Hayden gets smacked one too many times by another player and ends up throwing down and fighting him on the ice. This causes him going to

Let me tell you about my relationship with Meghan Quinn. First off, I read Three Blind Dates, I don't know how I discovered it, probably everyone was talking about it, so sure, okay yes please. I LOVED it. Like hardcore, hilarious, sexy, adorable, loved it. Then the second one came out and I was kind of scared because no way it could compare!

We first get a glimpse of Hayden Holmes in Back in the Game, a romcom novella about his teammate Calder Weiss. It isn't until we get to Three Blind Dates, that we truly met Hayden and his humble and sweet personality.

Hayden's world centers around playing hockey and when he loses the opportunity at the Stanley Cup after a brawl with a player on the opposing team, Hayden finds comfort at home.

The suit... the jock... the rebel... who would you pick? I’d pick the jock every time, and even though he did not win in the first book, we all win because he got his own book😍

Hayden is a professional hockey player... he is not a player off the ice, he is quiet and some what keeps to himself.... he is also sweet, caring, funny, and of course hot... so pretty much perfect....

Hayden Holmes stole my heart! He made me laugh. He made me swoon! I just loved this sexy jock with a heart of gold.

Hayden and Adalyn connect with each other through a common friend, Racer from Twisted Twosome. These two hit it off right away and have a great few weeks together enjoying each others company. Despite the instant attraction, these two take their time getting to know each other. Hayden senses that there is something special about Adalyn and he doesn't want to ruin their rela

Meghan Quinn is back at it again with her witty, funny, and charming romantic sports romance! If you have been following the series, then the much anticipated story of Hayden is not to be missed. This book packed the punch as it was both heartwarming, sexy, swoony, and humorous. So if you are looking a book that was fun, emotional, and romantic then I highly recommend you to read One Baby Daddy.

*I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.*

I have been dying, and I mean DYING, to read Hayden Holme’s story ever since we first met him in Back in the Game. When he didn’t end up getting the girl in Three Blind Dates, I was low key bummed about it but I knew Meghan Quinn would pull through and give Hayden the happily-ever-after he deserved…or at least I hoped she would. *crosses fingers*

I thoroughly enjoyed 3 Blind Dates. I liked 2 wedding crashers. And I love/hated 1 baby daddy!!! Why you ask? Thank you for asking!!! I love Hayden, all of him! I can't stand Adalyn, she's one of the worst female leads ever!

I LOVED the first half!!! Hayden is legit my favorite character and the first half of the book was freaking awesome. But then Adalyn becomes the single most annoying female character of all time! She is so stupid! I can’t stand her. I want to punch her.

Meghan Quinn excels at writing male leads that I want to marry. Gah! Hayden is sheer perfection. He's down to earth, sweet, smart, sexy, and rich. What girl wouldn't fall in love with him and hope to have all the babies?! I certainly would! If he were real, I'd be fighting my way to the front of that line, my long and happy marriage notwithstanding. LOL

So, here's what I loved about One Baby Daddy:

Warning: This review is a mess and it mostly likely sucks so read at your own discretion lol.

Who else had been not so patiently waiting for the Jock's story? Hayden had me so intrigued in Three Blind Dates and Back in the Game. He seemed like such a good guy and a great friend so I had been dying to get his story and learn why he was so sad and also learn about the girl he left behind when he was traded. But boy I had no idea how much emotion this one would pull from me.

“This girl is my game changer.”

Oh, Meghan Quinn has done it again! She gives her readers what they want EVERY SINGLE TIME! If you are a follower of the Dating by Numbers series, then you should be just as excited as I was for ONE BABY DADDY! Hayden is just…beyond! I absolutely ADORE this man! I have, ever since the beginning, and his story was just…SCRUMPTIOUS! I ate this baby up like nobody’s business and my eyes never strayed from the pages.

One Baby Daddy by Meghan Quinn was everything I was hoping for and more.

I loved the storyline, it was well paced, well written and I enjoyed watching Hayden and Adalyn fall in love.
From the first few pages I was in love, Hayden is such a sweet, caring, passionate and loving man. He had me swooning all throughout the book and I just loved how thoughtful, patient and loving he was with Adalyn.

This one is Hayden and Adalyn’ love story – super cute and as always hilarious. The moment Hayden and Adalyn first met already had me giggling like a school girl. Hayden is a professional hockey player who recently had a blow out on the ice, benched and as a result his team lost the Stanley Cup. Hayden got nothing to do but escape and brooding for a while. Hayden and Adalyn have a mutual friend Racer. During a get together at Racer’s house Adalyn caught Hayden snooping around – she called him ou ...more

Buddy read with the awesome Deniz! (Which was the only reason I finished)

I had several issues with this book:

Issue #1. Continuity.

Last we saw Hayden in Three Blind Dates he was playing for the Quakes and had been recently burned by a girl. This book doesn't continue from there; instead it drops you back several months into the past without a warning. (At the beginning I though it was several years! That's how jarring the timeline change was)

Issue #2. Inconsistencies in the story.

One thing that is always consistent with a Meghan Quinn book is that I get so easily wrapped up into everything. Whether I’m falling in love with someone or despising them, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that I feel some kind of emotion towards them. Fair warning, my review is basically loving on Hayden. I just can’t help it.

It’s Stanley Cup playoff time and reading One Baby Daddy was a perfect companion to watching hot men skate and score. Score a lot if you’re Hayden. *eye brow waggle*

Seriously though, Hayden has reached the top of my favorite book boyfriends by Meghan Quinn. I loved his approach toward Adalyn and their impending romance. Loved their slow burn. Loved how he built up that anticipation with every look and touch. Seriously swooning in my seat while I was reading.

It's always tough writing a review for a book that you loved half of and kind of liked the other half.

This book started out strong. Really strong actually. I loved both of the characters so much. I loved them in the appearances they made in previous books and I loved them in the first half of this book. Their chemistry was off the charts, their banter was hilarious and very witty.

Hayden was the perfect H. He was so sweet and he really wanted to give Adalyn the respect she deserved. He treated

Almost DNF

The first half was really good. Both characters where well developed and the chemistry was there. Around the 50% mark Adalyn took a turn for the worse. Her character became extremely unlikable and I almost put the book down. I kept reading just to see how it would turn out and it didn’t improve. The wrap up didn’t provide closure or confirmation that she realized her mistake, no redeeming qualities. I feel like a five year epilogue would have them divorced.

It is well written and I lik
