Being Pregnant However They Donpregnant However they don make her feel all that welcome especially when she won t reveal anything about the baby s father She s know they re ust being overprotective but if she doesn t do something Soon They Ll Drive Her Nuts Knowing She Needs To they ll drive her nuts Knowing she needs to the past to move forward with her life Norah is determined to tell the father about the pregnancy and find a ob Unfortunately finding a Critical Role: Tal'Dorei Campaign Setting job doesn t seem all that promising until the handsome Kai Ellis makes her an offer she can t refuse Kai Ellis can t handle living under the same roof as his mother but she has no where to go after having knee surgery Hiring someone to care for her seems a great idea but having Norah O Malley in his house could prove dangerous especially when he s so attracted to her Can he finally overcome his past to have a relationship with someone Or will his troubled past always haunt himI always like discovering new to me authors and this first book in a new series for Ms Schroeder has me looking forward to reading of her books and most especially of this series Right from the beginning this book was entertaining fast paced and captivated my undivided attention by what the heroine is going through She s so young to be having a baby and it isn t easy for her because her overprotective brothersThe dialogue was intense due to the main characters back stories the decision Norah has to make about her baby s future and what s holding Kai back from pursuing a long term relationship with Norah It isn t easy for him to overcom Under Your Skin is not my cup of tea Nothing stood out and called for my attention at all in fact the whole novel seemed rather bland It seemed like the author was trying to create a connection between both Norah and Kaibut itust all seemed too forced They didn t seem to click connect or have any type of real chemistry Kai was rude uncaring selfish self centred conceited and overall pain in the ass With all that being said I was supposed to believe that he was the heroine s love interest Um no Not only was he reluctant to love Norah but it seemed that he was reluctant to love any human being considering how he left his sister to take care of his mom He also seemed to emirate anger and resentment Seriously is he made out of it Then we have Norah Sigh I don t even know what to say about this hot mess It seemed that the infuriating Kai became the Norah wanted to dress to impress and catch his eye But it besides the fact that Kai was a total ass it was a bit strange because she was pregnant I understand that her hormones are going wacky but she literally Together just met him She seemed to be counting down until she gives birth and moves on with her life Itust seems like she wasn t invested in the baby or the outcome in the end view spoilerfinding caring and loving adoptive parents thinking about the wellbeing of the baby and wondering how it will feel like to hold the child in her arms hide spoiler Review also found at had received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review The book has since been released I will start with the elephant in the room This is a story that may not resonate with some as it deals with pregnancy and the decisions that need to be made when someone is not ready to be a mother While this can make a very deep and controversial storyline it is somewhat glossed over in the story in favor of the romance aspect This may be hard to digest for some as the story does not dig too far beneath the surface on this topic In my opinion this is a shame as it would have offered unlimited emotional directions to the story For the romance aspect it does deliver Two people who are drawn together by an instant attraction but a million reasons to stay apart This part of the story was good as the connection is instant and obvious There is also a little bit of humour mixed in with Kai s mother The physical chemistry is also evident Where I struggled is how Norah was so eager to explore this aspect so soon after going through what she did I felt like she did not learn anything from her previous mistakes and was all to. O Chicago and discovered none of her family wants to talk or listen She never expected to walk into a tattoo shop seven months pregnant and get her socks knocked off by instant attraction She can't even see her socks But Kai Ellis is big and gruff and sexy as hell and if he has a past well.
