Accidental Fate by M.A. Stacie

When Leo Sommers opens the door to his record store, the last thing he expects to find is a screaming baby -- a baby that turns out to be his. Flung into parenthood, he struggles to care for the one week old. Unable to contact the baby's mother, he battles the incessantly crying baby alone. Until he literally crashes into his savior.

Erin Miles gets out of her car to trade insurance details with the man who has rear-ended her car, she receives more than she expected. Instantly, she's drawn to the tattooed, exhausted man holding the squalling bundle. She sees how much Leo loves his son and offers help. Erin's patient and gentle caring for Leo and Joe soon develops into something far more than either of them had expected.

Caught up in a whirlwind romance, they are on the cusp of exploring their new relationship, when reality hits them in the face.

Grace's Thoughts:


Just about everything in this short story made my heart melt! First, the cover is simply irresistible! The book summary was intriguing enough for me to want to learn how this tattooed man deals with being thrust into fatherhood when a one-night stand, who he didn't know was pregnant all these months, leaves his baby on his doorstep.

I absolutely loved all the parts that included baby Joe, especially when Leo was holding and comforting him! Leo, bless his heart, wants to do his best for his son. You have to love a hero like that! Yes, Erin and Leo's relationship turns steamy quickly, but not before they spend some days together and build up to their first kiss. They have a few hot & spicy moments in various locations around Leo's apartment, and all I'm gonna say is that Ms. Stacie knows how to write them!

If I were to point out anything negative, it would be that I wanted to know more about the unique puzzle tattoo on Leo's arm. I also really wanted this story to just keep going well after the epilogue! :)

In the end, I found this story to not only be emotional and sexy enough to make my ovaries quiver, but heartwarming as well that my eyes welled up at one point. Definitely a novella worth reading!

I would hate not knowing the tale behind the tat. There is always a tale behind a tat! I have 3 tat's. Each one has a tale. One is completely bogus...but it makes people laugh so I have to roll with it.

Vanessa, I love hearing stories behind tats! Nonetheless, I still enjoyed this story, especially since Leo really stepped up to the plate for his son. :)
