Sunny Shelly’s Review: No Small Bet by Samantha Christy

No Small Bet by Samantha Christy is now live!

I’m not a dad. I don’t care what any paternity test says.

My grandfather thinks he can manipulate me into being a parent. He can’t. No one can. Not even the pudgy-faced newborn I’ve reluctantly agreed to take home from the hospital.

I’m not a dad. But I’ve also never accepted a bet I can’t win.

One year with the kid. That’s all I have to do to double my trust fund. Fail and I could lose everything.

But I can’t do it on my own, and the only nanny that has lasted longer than two days is forbidden. In a major way. Maybe that’s why she’s become my obsession. Even if she comes from my enemy.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

How did I not suspect that Addie Calloway would find the love of her life with one of the McQuaid brothers?? I have loved Addie’s spunk since I first met her in the Calloway Brothers series, and appreciated that she and her best friend Holland had developed a friendship in spite of the rivalry between their families. Then I met Hawk McQuaid — this couple had me hooked from the start!

I love a story where the cocky hero is brought to his knees, and we got that in spades with Hawk. That character really went on quite the journey in this book, and he grew immensely. Meeting and falling for Addy really brought out a different side to Hawk, and the cocky bastard from Chapter 1 was not the same devoted husband and father who brought me to tears in the epilogue. Hawk was an unexpected surprise of a character!

Samantha Christy wrote a beautiful story with these two characters. Especially when it came to Addie’s prosthesis. While she’s confident and doesn’t let her disability stop her from doing anything, there was one part where she’s really made to feel less-than because of her lost limb. With Hawk, however, he almost revered her for the warrior she is for having survived what she had. Both characters have literal physical scars, and I loved how their vulnerability bonded them.

No Small Bet was a fantastic start to a new series about the McQuaid brothers. This was a beautiful story of finding love in an unlikely place, the healing power of true love, self-forgiveness, and redemption. I honestly don’t know how SC is going to top Hawk and Addie with the rest of the boys!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Meet Samantha Christy

Samantha Christy writes sexy new adult and contemporary romances. Although each book is written as a standalone, her series’ tie together so you’ll enjoy seeing characters pop up over and over again.

Regardless of where you start your Samantha Christy journey, you can count on three things: Every book feels REAL (you’ll see bits of yourself in each heroine.) Every story has PAIN (because what’s a good romance without it?) And all her heroines find LOVE (because true romances have an HEA.)
Real. Painful. Love.

Samantha enjoys life as a full-time author under the warm Florida sun with her husband and four children.
