REVIEWER:  Brenda Larnell | RATING: B+
REVIEW:  BABY LOVE by Tia Kelly is a very short, sweet contemporary romance that centers around a baby, the father and his female friend. The setting is the East Coast, alternating between Manhattan, New York and the affluent Connecticut suburb that fits the story seeing that the hero is the son of a NBA player. As the story opens, we find the hero, Trent Scott, coming to grips with the fact that he and his sibling Warren are not the only Scott descendants who carry the same DNA of his deceased father. You can say Warren Sr. was a ‘player’ not just on the court. However, as the saying goes, “fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree”.

Soon after Trent finds out he may have another sibling he knew nothing about, he is faced with his own dilemma when his baby’s mama leaves his daughter with him because of a DNA showdown that involved Maury, her husband and the baby. So how does a single, handsome, man deal with a baby he knew nothing about and his own internal demons that place him in the same category as his father? Enter the heroine, Brandi Avery, who has a bit of a problem herself that involves her career and future. The initial meeting of Brandi and Trent is the best scene in the story. While they are not the hottest couple in romance mates, as they console, encourage, and befriend each other, a strong bond develops, and we Romance junkies are provided with the HEA (Happy Ever After) ending.

While I liked this story, it just seemed so rushed. I have to confess that this is the first story I have read in this series.
BABY LOVE is Book 5 of the Wilkersons in Love Series. It is a good stand-alone read, but I am curious to see just how the hero or heroine connects to the Wilkersons in Love subtitle. So, it looks like books 1 through 4 are somewhere in my future. I liked the story, as brief as it was, and I recommend it if you are looking for an entertaining quick read.
