Author: Bethany Lopez
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: July 9th 2013







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?

My first thought after reading this book was OMG that is the sweetest book!! 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.

Judd, I liked him immediately. 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… He is just that sweet! Judd also carries some sadness since the death of his mother and is man enough to help his Dad when he needs his son most. They have a great relationship, as his Dad likes to come to his games, so they are able to get through it as easily as they can.

Being a mother myself, I connected easily to this book. Some would say that I’m a single parent during the week so I understand the struggles that Sam goes through. Just doing little things require extra thought when kids are involved. It was an emotional ride as Sam and Judd’s relationship built, and the passion between these two characters is scorching!! I giggled, laughed and shed a tear while reading it, it was that good for me and by the end my heart was so full of joy! With the alternating POV’s it made it easier to grasp what both of the characters were feeling and I loved how Bethany portrayed them both. She has an addictive writing style and I found it hard to put this book down! I enjoyed it immensely and I will definitely scout out more books by Bethany.

    Indelible sounds like it would be an intense read. I like that's it's told from dual POV's, those are my favorites. I'm definitely going to have to check this one out.
