Alton's Secret Baby by Iris Parker
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Iris Parker’s ALTON’S SECRET BABY is a heartfelt addition to The Promises They Made series. Investigative journalist, Jessie Wilson, discovers the identity of her donor at a fertility Clinique: Boston Bruin, Alton Greene, the NHL’s most eligible bachelor. She tries to contact him to help save her son, Ezra, who is suffering from Leukemia. When she doesn’t hear back from him, she takes matters into her own hands. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.
I was looking forward to reading Alton’s story since book one, DOMINICK’S SECRETE BABY. Ten years ago, Alton and Dominick made donations to Fairview Fertility Clinic. Now, they both encounter their children and their mothers. The reason why they made the donation is disclosed in this story. It was an admirable gesture.
Alton came off as brooding in book one. I really enjoyed discovering his character. He has many dimensions. His public persona is different from his true self. He is an amazing guy who underwent a difficult past.
I like Jessi. She had a lot of hardships. She is strong and intelligent. It is understandable why Jessi does the things she does in the story. As a mother, she will do anything to help save her child. I’m glad that Alton is open-minded and understanding.
The plot was original. I like how Jessi and Alton run into each other again after Atlantic City. A lot of interesting things happen in this novel, as well, as some valuable life lessons. Both characters need to heal from their pasts. They make a wonderful couple and family. The epilogue was great, I’m curious where Iris Parker will take it. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
