Unfortunately, Heart of the Falcon uses my least favorite Romance trope: Oops, I'm pregnant! I was excited to get to know Daniel Falcon more, and it sounded like it was going to be a sweet and steamy friend's little sister Romance. It just let me down though. Daniel and Madelyn run into each other when she's trying to escape the rain. There's an immediate chemistry between them, but Daniel has rules about hooking up with friends' family. But they can't keep their hands off of each other and one thing leads to another.

Heart of the Falcon went down hill really fast. I knew I wasn't going to enjoy it as soon as there's no mention of a condom. A few pages later, Madelyn is sick and figures out that she's pregnant. From there it just gets worse, since Daniel is a 100% dick about it. He immediately says that he can't be the father and she's just like all of the other women who try to pin a baby on him in order to get his money. But oddly enough, when he realized that she was a virgin, he assumed that she was going to cling on to him, because women like her don't sleep around without getting attached. And yet when she tells him about the pregnancy, he accuses her of jumping into bed with another man the very next night. Which is it? You can't have it both ways!

Other than the poorly done surprise pregnancy plot (I mean, use a freaking condom!) and the hero being a straight up jerk, Heart of the Falcon was just boring. I did admire Madelyn for taking responsibility and not letting Daniel make her feel badly. She also works hard and is moving up in her career. But not much happens. Madelyn goes about her business. Daniel flip flops about whether he should be taking care of her. Then they get married. Yawn. There's also a bunch of filler involving Daniel's parents' struggling marriage, which I didn't care about. It seemed like a way to add more drama and some pages since it would be extremely short otherwise.

I simply didn't care for Heart of the Falcon. Pregnancy plots are my absolute least favorite. I don't want the couple getting together just because there's a baby coming! There were times when I did believe that Daniel cared for Madelyn outside of the pregnancy, but it's still what drove them together in the end.
