✱✱Book Review✱✱ Baby by Janie Crouch

A Linear Tactical Romantic Suspense Standalone
by Janie Crouch

Baby. Don’t let the name fool you.

Being Linear Tactical's easiest-going younger brother has never been a problem for Baby Bollinger. He likes people. He likes laughing. He likes life.

But he has secrets buried deep under his charming smile that would change everything.

Quinn Harrison-Pritchard doesn’t have secrets. What she does have is a big mess of a life that's painfully public.

Jobless. Blacklisted. Broke. Alone. Exactly where nobody wants to be as they hit their 39th birthday.

Oak Creek is supposed to be a fresh start. A chance to lick her wounds and figure out a plan. One that doesn’t include Baby Bollinger. But the vigorous, mouth-watering mechanic—anything but a baby—is pursuing her with a single-minded focus.

And doesn’t seem to care that she’s twelve years his senior.

But danger has followed Quinn to Oak Creek, someone from her past who is convinced she’s wronged him. And that she needs to pay with her life.

Only Baby can save her. But to do so, he’ll have to face the secrets he’s let define him for way too long. And resurrect the warrior buried inside.

Momma Says: 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The blurb for Baby has to have the most perfect first line of any blurb ever because there is nothing baby-like about Baby. The thing is even though I know his first name, I just don't think of him by that name. He's Baby, that's all there is to it. I have to say that I did like the bit of confusion names caused here. One thing's for sure, Janie Crouch does chemistry like nobody's business, and that holds true for Baby and Quinn. She's a bit older than Baby, but there's an interesting twist to the dynamic between them. She may be the older one, but given the life she's led, she's the more inexperienced between them, so it's not so much a cougar thing as it could've been. No matter the trope, these two are great together. Naturally, there's some intrigue and danger - it wouldn't be a Linear Tactical book without those elements. Oh, and a bit of romance angst for the sexy as sin couple, and then the author tempers everything with some well-timed wit and humor. I have to say, in terms of romantic suspense series, this one has it all - romance, suspense, action, danger, strong, independent heroines, and swoon-worthy alpha males who would do anything to protect those women. Baby and Quinn just happen to be the latest fantastic couple in a whole series of them.
