Summary

While The Billionaire's One-Night Baby isn't a book I usually would have picked up to read, I was sucked into the story. I enjoyed the South African setting and being introduced to Jago's family. I look forward to revisiting this family when The Powerful Boss She Craves is released.

4-STAR REVIEW: THE BILLIONAIRE’S ONE-NIGHT BABY by Joss Wood

The Description

Scandals of the Le Roux Wedding: Book 1
Publication Date: May 24, 2022

The consequences of their passion are unavoidable in this surprise-pregnancy romance by Joss Wood!

They said one night only…

Until a baby binds them—forever!

Running Johannesburg’s top bridal boutique doesn’t mean Dodi Lewis believes in happily-ever-after. Past experience has shattered that illusion. But a single breathtaking encounter with Jago Le Roux—that Dodi believes in!

After growing up with a volatile father, Jago’s sure a family isn’t for him. Until Dodi tells him she’s pregnant… Suddenly Jago can’t picture a future without his child—or Dodi! That means putting his emotions on the line, something he’s never done before…

The Review

I’ve been reading a lot of Joss Wood’s books lately. So, when I came across The Billionaire’s One-Night Baby, I didn’t hesitate to give it a read—even though Harlequin’s Presents line is not my favorite, nor is the accidental baby trope.

The Billionaire’s One-Night Baby is Dodi and Jago’s love story. Interestingly enough, I actually liked both characters. Even though they both had some major issues stemming from their childhoods, they were able to work through them to find their happily ever after. 

I enjoyed the character development during the course of the story and found it satisfying when they finally realized and declared their feelings.

In all honesty, the accidental baby plot was the lowlight for me, but that’s just a personal preference. Luckily, while it was the catalyst for getting Dodi and Jago into a relationship, it didn’t really take over the story. It came up from time to time, but the author made great pains to make sure that it was clear that Jago wasn’t in the relationship because Dodi was pregnant.

While The Billionaire’s One-Night Baby isn’t a book I usually would have picked up to read, I was sucked into the story. I enjoyed the South African setting and being introduced to Jago’s family. I look forward to revisiting this family when The Powerful Boss She Craves is released.
