Disclaimer: I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely mine.

Some consequences bite . . . big time.

Bennett Langdon has a firm no-relationships policy. Still, it doesn’t stop her from hooking up with a super-sexy bad boy at her best friend’s wedding. After all, it’s only one night—what harm could it do? Ten weeks later, a pregnant Bennett has her answer…

Linc Monahan can’t believe it. This wasn’t supposed to happen. He’s a werewolf, and shouldn’t be able to father a child with a human. Now Linc has to find some way to tell Bennett that not only do werewolves exist, but she’s about to have a baby with one.

But when word of their surprise conception gets out, the fur hits the fan. There are people who don’t want this baby to be born—even if it means killing. Now Bennett and Linc aren’t just fighting each other . . . they’re fighting for their lives.

 

Review

When I read the blurb for this book, I expected the kind of battles and struggles for power that I’ve come to expect from paranormal romance, but I wasn’t very disappointed that it was not the case.

A spontaneous decision to enjoy a one night stand at their best friends’ wedding ends in long term consequences for Linc Monahan  and Bennett Langdon and also the revelation that Bennett may not be completely human herself. Turns out she belongs to a group of supernaturals who have been at war with Linc’s people for centuries and the pregnancy could potentially unravel the tenuous peace agreement that has been in place for that long. Not like she cares.

Linc and Bennett were a very enjoyable couple, with great chemistry and very hilarious  and sometimes snarky banter. I absolutely adored Bennett’s irreverence and the fact that she did not fawn over Linc. For two people were not interested in relationships, having a baby together was a huge change in their lives and they had to learn to trust each other and also trust in the love they had for each other, not an easy feat with those pregnancy hormones! I have to say that Linc was great with Bennett – patient, understanding and very protective.

However, I was a bit let down that the promise of some supernatural rumbling did not come to pass. I spite of that, I still had a fun time reading BABY’S GOT BITE.

A word of warning: Do not read in public due to the amount of laughter-inducing dialogue.
