He may be a player, but this stud’s not shooting blanks.
I’m nobody’s baby daddy. I don’t care how many stunning women throw themselves at me, looking to turn one hot night into an 18-year paycheck. I’ve got way too much on the line to throw it away for one night of pleasure.
Ball is life, and basketball is my first priority. I’ve got a championship to win.
But when I see that familiar face shaking her pom-poms on the sidelines, I’m transported back to childhood, back to the days before a fiery plane crash ripped us apart, forcing us to grow up overnight.
Those were the days when Eden Evans stole my heart. This time, I might be ready to give it right back to her.
I have no interest in a man who comes with groupies. With a rock legend for a father, I’ve seen the toll fame takes on a marriage. The last thing I need is a guy with more Twitter followers than Justin Bieber.
So when Nick Barnes dribbles his way back into my life, my heart and head go into battle. I can’t fight my desire for the sexy baller with his eight-pack abs and panty-dropping charm.
And when that little stick shows an unmistakable plus sign, suddenly everything is on the line.
With a secret baby on the way, will Nick realize that having the home court advantage is what he’s wanted all along?
This is a standalone romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers. Light on basketball and heavy on steamy romance, this is the first book featuring members of the Barnes family.

REVIEW – THE BALLER’S SECRET BABY
Nick is a successful professional basketball player who life and career is being managed by his overbearing mother. While attending a football game he notices one of the cheerleaders is his childhood friend Eden, who he lost contact with after their fathers were killed in a plane crash.
Eden is a doctor who is very smart and created a medical instrument that is used everywhere. She loves dancing and is a cheerleader for the Texas Scorpions.
When Nick reconnects with her after he sees her at the game the feelings between them ignite. A relationship ensues but is this playboy ready to be a family man?
There is no doubting that Nick and Eden belong together, but they must learn to trust each other before they can have their happy ever after. I enjoyed how the narrators brought the story to life.
