Indelible by Bethany Lopez
After a year of partying, Sam decides to buckle down and focus on college. Things are going great until a one-night stand leaves her pregnant and alone. Raising a child while going to school isn’t easy, but Sam is determined to be strong for her daughter. She doesn’t have time for guys or relationships, and takes great care to protect her child and her heart.
Judd doesn’t fit the mold of a college ballplayer. His long hair and tattoos may fit the life he’s created for himself, but baseball is the one thing he takes seriously. When he meets Sam, he’s immediately drawn to her curves and refusal to put up with his crap. When Judd learns the truth, can he handle the responsibility that comes with loving a single mother?
Sam yearns for the fire that Judd fuels in her, but her child’s needs have to come first. Can two people at different stages in their life find a way to make a life together?
Indelible is about a single mother who lets a guy into her life before telling him about the little secret she has at home. Sam and Judd’s relationship builds slowly as they get to know one another and somehow along the way, they let each other in.
Sam is doing the best she can to get herself through college. She has a great support system of friends that help her out with her daughter Kaddie. Obviously not everything runs smoothly for her but she is still able to go out with her girlfriend Jamie occasionally and be with adults. She dates occasionally too, but nothing too serious. Her first priority is her daughter and she doesn’t want to let a guy to close as he may not accept them both. He sees Sam as a bit of a challenge to begin with, but there is something about her that draws him to her. He wants to get to know her more than a one night stand. So, he begins to woo her with dates and simple gestures that had my heart melting.
