Netgalley: Baby Twins to Bind Them by Carol Marinelli

Song Stuck on the Brain: I Wanna Fall in Love by Chris Isaak

Baby Twins to Bind Them


Carol Marinelli


I don't often read Harlequin Romances, they tend to be a little steamier than I like to read. Baby Twins caught my eye for a couple of reasons though, and I had to give it a shot. I love medical stories, I love babies (twins! even better!), and a doctor to romance her. It sounded like a good read. Big picture - I did enjoy the story. Dr. Steele is pretty great. He's romantic and very much the white knight. It gets very steamy between Guy and Candy, which makes sense for this line, but it also felt a little over done for my taste. Although they do develop feelings for one another, in the beginning it's all about the physical pleasure - friends with benefits on a deadline. For me the passion comes out of love and commitment, not love growing from pointless sex. I basically got what I expected. Moments that were funny (Candy's co-workers and patients are pretty funny. The sponge bath scene was the funniest thing in the whole book), enjoyable and a little romantic, but overall a feeling that I could take or leave the book. It's still on my Kindle, but I doubt I'll read it again.
I'd give this about a 3 star rating and know in part that's because I chose a book that really wasn't suited for me to begin with. If this is your style, you may read it with a different view entirely. Happy Reading!


The ultimate baby bombshell! For delicious Dr. Guy Steele, life is all about flirting and never about forever! It's the only way to avoid discussing the painful issue of his infertility. So a fling with Candy Anastasi, the sexiest nurse in the hospital, is the perfect solution…right? Candy's desperate to take her mind off her good-for-nothing ex—and six weeks of the best sex of her life is the ideal distraction! Until she realizes that she's fallen for Guy…and that she's pregnant–with twins! Could her double baby bombshell ultimately bind her to Guy forever?


Carol Marinelli recently filled in a form asking for her job title. Thrilled to be able to put down her answer, she put writer. Then it asked what Carol did for relaxation and she put down the truth - writing. The third question asked for her hobbies. Well, not wanting to look obsessed she crossed the fingers on her hand and answered swimming but, given that the chlorine in the pool does terrible things to her highlights - I'm sure you can guess the real answer.
