Standalone Companion Novel to All About the D

Authors: Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Adult Contemporary
Release Date: March 12, 2019
There’s a fine line between lust and hate.
I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year
transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond
hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.
His mouth is.
And the stupid things that come out of it.
But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his
damnedest to take care of me… 
Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.
And it doesn’t involve talking.
I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend
can’t change us that much, can it?
Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.
Except he left me a little keepsake.
And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most
notorious player.

Lex writes contemporary romance, the sexy kind with lotsa
angst, a whole lotta kissing, and the hot happily ever afters. When she’s not
writing, she lives a parallel life as an English teacher.
She loves printing black and white photos, listening to
music on vinyl, and getting lost in a great book. Bitten by wanderlust,
she’s  lived all over the country but
currently resides in the City of Angels with her husband and twin daughters.

Leslie McAdam
Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little
Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small
orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small
children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means
letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a
young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s
Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing
about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and
notoriously terrible at comma placement.
Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all
things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over
Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of
outdoors on canvas.


[I received a digital arc for an honest review]

Surprise, Baby! is the new romantic comedy by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam. This is my first time reading either of these authors and now I regret not reading their work sooner.
Kendall and Drew have been enemies since the day they met. Drew is an arrogant man whore whose exploits are well-known. Being in Public Relations, Drew is Kendall’s worst nightmare. During Thanksgiving break they find themselves alone together and stranded in a cabin during a blizzard. Kendall discovers Drew isn’t the man he once was, and he makes his attraction towards her known. These enemies quickly become lovers and get more than just memories from their wild nights together. Now they have nine months to figure out a way to work around their own insecurities and doubts.
“I’m taking it as a personal challenge to discover every single way I can get Kendall to moan.”
Surprise, Baby! was a fantastic romantic comedy containing both the enemies to lovers and the unexpected pregnancy tropes. The characters we really great and I could see myself being friends with them. The humor was cheesy and ridiculous and succeeded in making me chuckle. Kendall was realistic and her actions and insecurities were believable. Drew 2.0 was absolutely perfect, he was really just a kid at heart and his attention, care and worshiping of Kendall made me swoon. I think one of the aspects I enjoyed the most was the story didn’t seem far-fetched, there was no crazy unbelievable moments but that didn’t hurt the story in any way. I looked forward to each chapter as the book progressed, and I was rooting for the main characters to stop assuming so much and just talk to each other. Surprise, Baby! was miscommunication at its finest.
We know each other so well in some respects, but in others we’re almost strangers.”
Overall, I thought Surprise, Baby! by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam was a successful romantic comedy and I would definitely recommend it to friends. I’m hoping they collaborate on more book sin the future and I’ll be here to read them 🙂
In my wildest imagination, I never would’ve thought we’d be like this. That he’d make me intoxicated. Wild. Unbridled in a way I never knew I needed.




“Kendall makes me a beast in bed, a guard dog to anyone threatening her, and a lovesick fool.
