Secret baby isn’t a trope I normally run too but if it involves Poppy and TK your girl is sprinting! When the high school sweethearts reunite its anything but sweet but their chemistry is electric! This pair you can’t help but root for. On their own they’re both strong characters but together they felt unstoppable.

What I loved is how real this story felt. TK jumping into the role of father after not knowing his son existed. Poppy trying to protect her son and also her heart from history repeating itself. Plus there’s mentions of work place harassment, gossip blogs, and the injuries that come with being a football player. But I loved the theme of female friendships that carried from book one. The lady mustangs are catty but some are supportive and I loved that Poppy had the support as she was thrown into this world.
