The 131 Preview Review Presents 

Title: His Lullaby Baby
Author: Airicka Phoenix    
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours
Blurb:
Nothing ever happens by accident.

Ex-combat search and rescue officer Toby McClain had seen all aspects of humanity in his ten years of service until friendly fire took him out of action. But bitterness was something Toby could never do. He was alive. He had his family and, after being ambushed by a door, he had his eyes on the sexy new innkeeper.

Adelaide Nixon had felt the burn of love once already. It was a mistake that cost her six years of her life. It was a punishment she never wanted to feel again, especially when there were two little people who depended on her to keep them safe. The last thing she wanted or needed was the attention of a guy whose family kept the gossip mills turning.

But no secret ever stays hidden in a place like Willow Creek. Even as Toby breaks through Addy’s walls, a new threat comes to town, leaving her no choice but to put more than her heart in Toby’s hands and trust him not to destroy her.


Let's see where we end up this week kiddies!

       So I've sat down and ploughed through another Airicka Phonix romance. I'll tell you this much, I'm not disappointed. The tale of Toby and Addy is rich, heated, and at times heart wrenching.

Toby is a smooth, handsome and overwhelmingly sweet guy. Sure he's a little broken from his time int he military, but he doesn't let it slow him down.

Addy is broken, and comes with her own set of heavy baggage. A past no one wants to have had to live through, so to protect herself and her children Sean and Hanna she's build steel reinforced walls around her tiny little world.

Walls Toby systematically smashes through. Just as the heat levels begin to rise between them and they finally seem like they might be able to have some semblance of a real relationship the shit really hits the fan. Addy's tumultuous past rears it head.

The characters are strong, leaving you rooting for them. Wanting to see them get what they ache for. While the relationship between Addy and Toby is the focus I can't help but point out Addy's kids. They are true scene stealers and anytime they grace the page it's a joy to see what they are going to do.
 I'd say Airicka's hit it out of the park with this one, so excuse me while I go and finish reading it.

Cheers!

“I’m sorry,” she whispered, not sure why. It wasn’t like it was her fault.
His chin tilted in her direction. Shadows played chase across that beautifully defined lines of his face from the kitchen lights breaking through the windows. They glimmered off the velvety surface of his breathtaking eyes and collected in dark pools in the hollows of his cheeks and temples. She stared hypnotized as he studied her.
“What are you doing, Addy?”
Having not been doing anything, Addy gave a start at the gruff demand. Her thought scattered as she tried to think.
“I’m not—”
Surprisingly warm fingers cut through the space between them and ghosted lightly along the side of her cheek. The feather light caress rocked her all the way to her toes.
“Toby…”
The light shifted and she could just make out the slow curl of his lips. “You just can’t seem to make up your mind which one to call me, can you?” The fingers drifted back and curled around the nape of her neck. She was dragged to him and positioned with her hips cradled between hard thighs. “If it makes any difference, the way you breathe my name, the way you say it with just a hint of pleading, makes me all kinds of crazy with the need to devour you.”
Shit.
His fingers tightened in her hair, locking her in place, helpless to do anything more than allow it when he pulled her closer. Her hands flew to his shoulders.
“Kiss me, Addy.”
She should have said no. Commonsense demanded it. Logic and rationality insisted. But his mouth was right there, a delicious, taunting sin begging her for just one taste.
Her fingers curled into the material of his sweater, gripping him like a life preserver even as he was the one pulling her under. Her body dipped into his, no longer under her control. His heady scent of man, soap, and cheesecake consumed what little sense she had remaining.
She kissed him.
