Unexpected Consequences 

As a powerful Dallas oil executive, planning is what Lizzie Baron does best. But she certainly didn't plan on getting pregnant following one memorable night after a rodeo in Fort Worth. Now she needs to figure out how she's going to raise a baby with a man she barely knows. 

Aspiring bronc rider Chris Miller always hoped he'd see Lizzie again, though not quite like this. The pregnancy is a surprise—and so is finding out she's a member of the powerful Baron clan—but the more Chris gets to know Lizzie, the more he realizes he wants to be with her. When Lizzie learns Chris works for a rival company, she feels betrayed. Can two perfect strangers trust each other enough to become the perfect family?

Girl meets boy, boy & girl hook up, girl ends up pregnant & they live happily ever after. It's a pretty standard storyline for romance novels but I usually still enjoy it. For some reason I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. I liked all of the characters, but I didn't LOVE any of them. Lizzie & Chris were a cute couple, but I liked him more than I liked her. He made a lot of sacrifices for her (and the baby) & all she did was doubt him.  I also wish that they would have explored some of the other characters a little bit more, because I feel like that would have added some depth to the book.
