A best friend’s brother stand-alone from small-town romance author Brooke Montgomery about a girl who falls pregnant by the wrong man and the cowboy who takes her in…
I’ve crushed on my best friend’s brother for years.
He’s a six-foot-three, dark-haired cowboy who works on his family’s ranch and sends butterflies to my stomach anytime he looks at me. But he’s never made a move, so I need to get over it.
Except, when he reads a text message about me liking a mysterious guy, he snaps and demands answers. Little does he know, it’s my code name for him.
When he finally confesses he likes me too, I find out I’m pregnant. With my ex-boyfriend’s baby.
After spending three weeks together in secret, my world turns upside down when that little white stick reveals a positive sign from the one-night stand I had before him.
Now everything’s a mess and my life’s spiraling out of control.
I can’t expect him to date me anymore, so I insist we return to being friends. The last thing he needs is a girl who’s carrying another man’s baby and about to be a first-time mom.
But when my apartment gets broken into, and there’s a suspected criminal on the loose, he insists I move in with him to keep me safe.
Staying platonic proves to be harder with each passing day as he goes with me to my appointments, takes me baby shopping, and stocks the kitchen with all my weird cravings. He’s so involved that everyone assumes he’s the father. And I don’t correct them.
But the truth always comes out in a Southern small town.
Stay With Me is book 2 in the Sugarland Creek series. Each book in this Southern, small town series is a stand-alone and ends in a happily ever after.

From the moment I met Magnolia in Noah and Fisher’s book, I knew her story would be full of excitement and emotion with a splash of chaos. What I did not expect was for Tripp to be so…..TRIPP!!! From that dirty cowboy mouth (reserved for only Magnolia) to his incredibly sweet, patient side, he’s the ideal man for our girl!
Magnolia is a handful — but she has a heart of gold and does everything she can to push away the dark clouds that attempt to float around her life. When we learn her backstory, my heart ached for what she went through growing up. Thanks to Noah and her family, she was able to see that there is a lot of life out there to live. And live it up she does!! But her wild streak causes her to make several poor choices. We can all judge and think less of her, but honestly, I know I have been in those shoes and understand how that comes about. What she does after those poor choices is where we really get to see Magnolia shine.
Tripp’s trauma from losing his best friend plays a huge role in the man he becomes. It holds him hostage for quite a while, but when his hand is slightly forced in regard to Magnolia, we see the shift start to happen. He steps up to the plate for Magnolia and I was in awe of how he respected her boundaries. He gave her the best gift in those moments, and I believe that was what helped her grow the most. Tripp’s dedication to frequently being the designated driver and protector of not only Magnolia but his family, too, is such a tribute to Billy and brought tears to my eyes each time. And then he’d do things with his cowboy hat that WOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Just read it and find out already.
“Of course you’d know his favorite meal, you psycho stalker. But if it’s any consolation, I’d say he’s lookin’ at her like she’s a bowl of cold pea soup.” I furrow my brows at the visual. “What’s that mean?” “He hates soup. And pea soup is the worst of ’em all.”
