Two best friends who looked anywhere else but right in front of them and a story with many complications and self-doubt. I devoured this one in the same way as book 1 from this series.

Abby and Gilly have known each other since they were kids and have been through a lot together. They know each other inside and out and nothing one of them does can surprise the other? Or? Well, Abby for sure surprises him when she drops the “I want to get pregnant and need you to help me” bomb. So… what’s the

I loved this fun, flirty and fantastic friends to lovers romance. I thought Abby and Gilly were likable and the connection between them easy to feel. I felt that this story and the characters had a real air of genuineness about them. I could easily imagine this occuring between real life, lifelong friends. With plenty of emotions, humor, drama, heat, sweetness and some big twist to keep things exciting, this book will keep you very happy and entertained. I am choosing to post a completely ...more

This is the second book in the series but it can be read as a stand-alone. Abby and Gilly have been best friends forever and Gilly is a bit shocked when he learns of Abby’s plan to have a baby. Gilly at first says no when Abby asks for his help to have a baby, but he agrees with conditions. They start a relationship and sparks fly, but will Gilly’s ex break up their new relationship? Lots of drama and great chemistry. I liked it.

About the book: Release Date October 11, 2019

Dylan has a stare colder than the Arctic.
Even so, I can’t stop staring at him.
I should - the guy’s been a thorn in my side since my father hired him as a consultant. I’m supposed to be taking over the company but it feels like dad doesn’t trust me at all.

To impress him I have to impress Dylan.
Not an easy task when I’m pretty certain Dylan is the devil.

The devil with the kind of gorgeousness that should come with a warning.

I liked this friends to lovers romance between Gilly, the Superbowl Champion Quarterback, and Abby, the rich entitled princess with the sugary center.
While enjoyable, the pacing was a bit too slow for me and it took forever for Abby to decide and convince everyone that having a no strings attached baby was a good idea. She came across as flighty and superficial. Not my idea of a heroine I could root for.
It got better when she finally took her focus off of herself and on to Gilly

An absolutely fantastic, well written, and emotionally deep second book in the Bad Boy Bachelors of Orange Country series! The storyline is flawless, funny, witty, and very interesting with some ups and downs, drama, intrigue, and a mix of emotion on every page.

This story was just so sweet and cute and funny. Abby and Gilly have been best friends since they were children. And while they’ve always loved each other, they’ve both managed to keep it mostly platonic. At least until Abby’s plans for single motherhood push Gilly right off the deep end. To add fuel to the already chaotic situation, Gilly’s ex is back and wants to pick up from where she dropped him. This book took me on a bit of an emotional roller-coaster, with stunning highs and sudden drops. ...more

A best friends to much more romance.

Abby had made a decision about her life and she was sure that her best friend, Gilly, was going to totally support her. But she was totally surprised that he didn't think her brilliant idea was so brilliant. Mainly because she didn't think he felt the same way she did about him.

This is the second book in the Bad Boy Bachelors of Orange County but it can be read as a standalone.

What a fun friends to lovers story. Abby and Gilly have been friends since birth, and they've never attempted to take their relationship to another level.

After seeing her two friends get pregnant, Abby gets the idea to have a baby also. But she doesn't want a relationship, just a baby. And she wants to have the baby the old fashioned way. However, when she tells Gilly, his reaction is not what she expected.
