Veterinarian Rory Gallagher chose a different path from his brothers, both of whom became first responders in the lovely little town of Darling, Vermont. Rory's always had an affinity for animals--and the ladies. Known for his impressive track record in breaking hearts, Rory never meant to hurt anyone; he's just never been in a hurry to settle down. It's not as if he needs to pay a visit to the town's famed Kissing Bridge to magically find love. He'll know The One when he sees her. . .right?

Oaklee Ferguson is the kid sister of Rory's best friend--and, even now that she's all grown up, remains immune to the pet-doctor's charms. When she shows up at Rory's clinic late one night--devastated after hitting a stray dog with her car--Rory's so-called -bedroom eyes- are the last thing on her mind. Still, his care and kindness toward the dog, and his concern for her feelings, catches Oaklee by surprise. . .and soon the two (and rescued dog makes three!) begin to share a deep connection that neither could have ever imagined. Could it be that love has been waiting for them by the bridge all along?

Somebody's Baby was cute, cute, cute, and cute. It was a sweet and easy read that made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. This book gave me the cutesy feeling of a Hallmark Channel movie. This was a quick and adorable read. 

I loved the setting of this book. Darling, Vermont seems like such a sweet and perfect town. I seriously want to live there! It is exactly what you would imagine a cute town in a romance movie would be like. It set the tone perfectly for this story.

The romance in this book was well paced. I was expecting the romance to develop too quickly for my liking, but it actually developed at a believable pace. Oaklee and Rory seemed like complete opposites, but they worked very well together! On the outside, it seemed like they didn't have very much in common, but then actually fit together perfectly. I enjoyed watching them fall in love, especially with the help of their cute puppy!

My favorite character in this book was Oaklee. I loved how smart and caring she was. I really related to her and understood the choices she made in this book. The author did a great job and making Oaklee feel like a real human that we could all be friends with in real life. Oaklee tended to be a bit messier than I am, but her messiness with Rory's neat freak attitude made me laugh out loud! 

Some parts of this book felt slow, but this book kept me entertained for the most part! I definitely would be intrigued to see what the author does next with this series!

If you are looking for a sweet and light-hearted book, then I definitely would recommend picking this book up!
