❤ Call Her Mine (Harmony Pointe #1) ❤ Melissa Foster ❤

Two besties and a baby make for an instafamily and a surprising romance in a delightful series by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of the Sugar Lake novels.

Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.

Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.

But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after… just not one either of them expects.

ARC kindly received from author for an honest review

I am a sucker for a friends-to-lovers story, and when our lovelies have been besties forever, it is even more adorable when they finally get together.

Throw in a sexy, new DILF and an adorable bub and I was hooked.

Now, our Ben did pee me off a bit at the start with the way he talked about the baby, but this might just be me, and it wasn't too long before that all changed and went all Papa Bear.

I loved Aurelia and Ben navigating their way to a new sort of relationship.  The chemistry is strong in this pair, and as a reader I was left wondering what took them so dang long?

But for me, as much as I liked Ben and Aurelia, Call her Mine was all about baby - made this old duck want to find a baby to squish!

Great secondary characters rounded out this lovely story, and I couldn't help but smile as I was reading.

I look forward to more of this series.
