A happenstance romance about a case of mistaken identity, a billionaire with a second chance at life, and the young doctor who changes it all for him.
This hadn’t been the plan for Chicago native Johari Russell. But then again, neither had raking up thousands of dollars in medical school debt. Desperate, she accepts the money for her education from sources she probably shouldn’t have, and now, finds herself waiting to meet with one-half of a happy couple with the intention of carrying their future child. This is the new plan for Johari and once she makes one, she sticks to it. She never intended to have such a strong connection with the prospective father of the future child, or for his brown eyes to tighten her tummy in ways it probably shouldn’t.
And why did he look so familiar to her?
Illness nearly ended Alexander Ricci’s life before it barely began, a life of opulence, thanks to the successes of his late father and one that’s also very much under the microscope due to his own accomplishments or, erm… indiscretions. He and his brother Asa have been dubbed the “Princes of Chicago” by the media, a direct result of a long stent of playboy debauchery. But, at least for Alexander, that seems so long ago. The face of the tabloids had been one before the life of an altering diagnosis, before chemo and now that he’s cancer-free, he just wants to leave that man and his previous legacy behind. The people in his life don’t make it easy, though. Especially, after he meets a young woman who makes him not only want for more out of his life…
But demand for it.
Alexander wasn’t supposed to meet Johari in that café. She was there for someone else, but it seemed that fate, destiny, had other plans.
So how could they both ignore it?
Baby, Baby is a standalone, BWWM contemporary romance with no cliffhanger and a happily ever after. This is a tale of fate and second chances. Find out what happens when two people throw all logic out the window and go by the beat of their hearts!
