Andrea and Luke are two people who are finding out that when it comes to the heart, love takes it's own course and cannot be steered. BABY MINE is a book written with the intent to draw the reader into a world of raunchy yet exceedingly zealous encounters of the flesh. Well written with a distinctly erotic flair it seduces the senses with its ultimate lovemaking of exceedingly lusty words. I however would have liked to see a more substantial basis to the plot. I also felt that attempts at making the relationship more poignant failed. The hero and heroine seemed more into the actual sexual acts than whether or not their souls connected. Andrea's pregnancy also took a backseat to the forcefulness and sometimes aggressive nature of Luke. I was at times put off by Luke’s uncouth choices in his endearments towards Andrea but it all ties into the exoticness of their "Coming together". If you like hard hitting and explicitly carnal and energetic sex then this is the book to read. Published by Liquid Silver Books and available as of 2003 BABY MINE will certainly leave you feeling well and truly pleasure.
