Romance Book Review: Emma Alisyn's Alphonso's Baby
Series Connection: Clan Conroy Bride
Genre: Paranormal romance, WereBear Romance
Publisher: Hard Candies Publishing
Purchase Link: Amazon
Tamar is trained from birth to be a good pastor's daughter. She's always been a good girl, but one slip changes her life forever.
After a one night with a man she's loved all her life, Tamar is floored when he tells her that there is no future for them. So much so, she doesn't tell him she's pregnant and picks up the pieces of her life and moves on to raise her baby, hoping that one day he would grow up and come to her.
Alphonso is stunned when he realizes he's the man who knocked Tamar up and he has wanted to kill all these months. Now he has to convince Tamar to take a chance on him, even though he's hurt her. The only problem is his past has come back to haunt him and what he feared all along may come true.
This is the second book in the Clan Conroy Bride series. I decided to give this one a chance after reading the first one which left me with some issues and worry about whether I really liked this author's style. I am happy to say I gave her a second read. I liked the story and action throughout this book. Tamar is a great character. Although just a human she shows herself to be a strong person with a heart of gold.
Alphonso may have started out as a jerk, but his character picks up throughout the story and they become a good strong couple with an HEA.
I'll be moving on to the next book in the series—Norelle's Bear.
Bear shifter Alphonso shunned his curvy mate Tamar to protect her from his dark past... but when he discovers he is the father of her baby, will he take the risk in order to raise their child?
Always looking over his shoulder for enemies, Alphonso pushed curvy Tamar away after their one, blazing hot night together. "I'm not relationship material, Tam. Don't get stars in your eyes."Only that one night resulted in a secret child, a beautiful baby girl Tamar has been hiding in plain sight for six months. Waiting patiently for him to see the gosh darn it light already. When he discovers her deception, Alphonso knows he has a choice to make. Continue to allow his past to dictate his future, or take a chance on true love and family.
Tamar isn't certain her childhood love Al will ever see reason- she knows he did some bad stuff. Especially when that bad stuff shows up in the form of a curvy, exotic ex-girlfriend looking for protection. Tamar isn't going to roll over and play dead, though. She's Head Sow in these parts and no one- not the mysterious beauty, not her father's disapproval, and certainly not the enemies waiting in the shadows to strike- are going to claim what belongs to her without a bloody fight.
Alphonso's Baby is the second paranormal bear shifter standalone romance in the Clan Conroy Brides series. If you enjoy emotional, fast paced second chance romance with broody, protective Alpha males and feisty BBW, then this is the story for you. Includes a bonus epilogue double wedding scene.
