What happens at Comic-Con, stays at Comic-Con…

Robotics engineer Jenny Nguyen has given up on finding Mr. Right. So when her brother and his husband approach her to act as surrogate for their child, she sees it as her only chance to have a child and accepts. One week after she initiates the process, however, she meets a man who gets her heart pumping for all the right reasons and gives into the temptation. When the test turns positive, she’s believes she can’t handle both the pregnancy and dating, but she underestimates how persistent a Daniel Kelly can be.

When surgeon and gamer-geek Dan meets a pretty woman dressed as a Sailor Scout at Comic-Con, a roll of his lucky 20-sided die tells him he should take a gamble on her. One night of passion leaves him longing for more, but Jenny’s refusal to return his calls afterward leaves him wondering if the attraction was one-sided. An accidental discovery of her pregnancy has him convinced the baby is his, and he’ll stop at nothing to win her heart

REVIEW:

Another winner from Crista McHugh and her Kelly Brothers series.

Jenny Nguyen is a robotics engineer, cosplayer and soon-to-be surrogate mother of her brother's boyfriend's baby. Whoa. That's a mouthful. The only problem with the last part is, the baby may not be her brother's boyfriend's baby. It could be Daniel Kelly's baby. After all, what happens at Comic Con should stay at Comic Con. Unless the condom broke. Oops.

Daniel Kelly is intrigued by Jenny but thanks to his lucky die, he probably shouldn't pursue the relationship. And cue the first meet-cute cause the first first meet cute was more a meet HAWT. Fate has funny ways of bringing people together and Fate definitely had a good laugh with this one.

Dan can't believe his luck. Jenny is at the D&D game he's participating in. Jenny can't believe Dan is there. Some awkwardness ensues, a totally sexy time on the freaking Iron Throne—yes, a replica of the one from Game of Thrones—and dancing around whether they want to be together or not. The answer: be together and have some super sexy times while getting to know it other outside the bedroom.

The one thing that irked me about this book is Jenny's ethnicity because it's putting her in a stereotype category. She's Asian, likes to cosplay, goes to Comic Con, has a mother who wants her to marry a nice Vietnamese boy. Of course, Jenny wants to break the mold on some of those things so I had to grudgingly let go of my irritation and sigh with happiness when she ends up with Dan after "the black moment" (literally and figuratively). You'll get it once you read the book.

I'm looking forward to the next Kelly Brothers book.
