Dominick's Secret Baby (The Promise They Made #1) Reviews
Very good story! Both characters are settled and in their lifestyles, though they are very different they have similar self-doubt issues. They are at peace with their short-coming, their story digs deep and brings those things back to life so they can decide whether to deal with them or keep them buried. The secret was the drama but I really like how the author twisted the revelation, it was an eye opener but others things seen them on a tailspin and they are forced to focus on "us". They are bo ...more
HIDDEN GEMS ARC REVIEW
This story is stretch as far as the set up. An 11 year old hires a detective to find her sperm donor father. Maybe, maybe not. I still enjoyed the story. I liked all the characters but I loved Dom. He was a little insecure about some things, but oh so sweet. When he found out he was father, he was surprised and a little scared. His internal thoughts gave you a good look into his personality. Even though Aly was 11 he had the new parent thoughts flashing through his head. Th ...more
A fun, heartwarming twist on the secret baby trope.
Dominic's Secret Baby starts out with a prologue that had me sucked in from page one. Dom had an instant family he knew nothing about, immediate attraction to the mother of his child and a past that had him second guessing whether he should be a part of their lives. Helena feels intensely drawn to her daughter's father, but has a huge secret that could destroy their budding relationship.
This book has so many swoon worthy moments, intense feels, ...more
Just like Dominick had his instant connection with Ali as a parent and with Helena, I was connected with the book.
I really enjoyed how the storyline developed, how characters reacted in different situations...i just kept reading until I finished it in one sitting.
I hope there will be another story connected with Alton
I'm not going to write about the book content because you have the great written blurb for that, I'll just recommend the book for everyone who like to read about instant connectio ...more
Emotionally charged, chemistry fueled
Dominick’s Secret Baby by Iris Parker is a very well written book. Emotionally authentic, all characters are explored as they learn about one another and begin their journey to creating a family.
I loved the beginning, as well as this unconventional storyline! Ali, the precocious preteen; Helena, the socially awkward beauty and brains; and Dominick, the gentle giant alpha.
Iris Parker writes from all three perspectives, but focuses on Helena and Dominick for th ...more
Dominic was on his way off the ice when security came running after a child headed his way. What he didn't know was that this encounter is going to change his life even more was the mother of the girl. When the dust settles Dominic will impact not one but three lives in a big way all thanks to the meeting of one very resourceful little girl. I voluntarily agreed to receive an ARC of this book for an honest review.

Very different secret baby story!
Teenager Ali Bramford is going to be in so much trouble with her mom Helena Bramford. She left to house to talk to hockey star Dominick Henderson because the private investigator that she had hired with her savings had identified him as her father.
Dominick's Secret Baby is very different from other secret baby stories because Dominick had donated sperm a long time ago and thought that the confidentiality statement he had signed would prevent his being identified. ...more
