Ten years ago, Marc and Bree were voted Cutest Couple—until a graduation-night argument destroyed their relationship. Unable to contact him, Bree had no choice but to forget Marc—and raise the son she never got to tell him about.
Marc got Bree’s message loud and clear when he never heard from her again. Now stationed near his hometown, he sees their high school reunion as a chance to make peace with the past. But after one glimpse of Bree, he knows he never really got over her. And after one glimpse of her son, Marc knows he’s the boy’s father…
Despite the secrets and lies that kept them apart, Marc and Bree can’t resist picking up where they left off. But when the weekend is over, it may be too late to build the future they once dreamed of.
Secret baby books can be a little hit or miss for me. Unfortunately, Cutest Couple was a miss for me.
I have every sympathy for Bree’s plight – teenaged, pregnant and alone – but there seemed to me to have been very little in the way of actually trying to contact Marc to let him know he was a father. One letter and she gives up? Surely, there was some form of electronic communication or telephones she could have used. I can understand Bree’s reasons for not wanting Marc to enter the military, but I hope that wasn’t the excuse she used to give up on searching for him.
There is no doubt that Bree and Marc have chemistry, that something pulling them back together despite what has passed over the years. They are pretty hot together as well, when they get down to the sexytimes.
However, the resolution in this story just seemed rushed. I realise that it is a novella, but nonetheless, it felt as everything was tied up in a neat little bow all too quickly.
I had really been looking forward to this book, but it left me a little meh!
