CLAIMING KING'S BABY
When Justice saw the baby in his wife’s arms, he was confused and assured Maggie that he would not grant her only wish. A little over a year ago Maggie was convinced that there was no future with Justice, who insisted he would not have a child, and so she approached her then-estranged husband with divorce papers. However, they were carried away by their passions and Maggie made love with Justice before they could come to an agreement—hence the baby. And soon Maggie will find out the real reason Justice didn’t want a child…

- Stubbornness and Pride can turn into a stupidity 2
- JAB 03/11/2018 3 people found the following review helpful
Ohhhhh, the hero was just such an idiot in this one. In the beginning, the hero and heroine are separated because the heroine states that the hero won't open up to her or at least say, "I want you to stay here."His lack of feeling behavior caused her to leave once and though; she came back, the second time was truly the last because he wouldn't tell her why he didn't want kids. In fact, no one knows he's infertile. Plus, not to mention that she gave him an ultimatum, which he didn't take. She leaves him but comes back again after a year and 7 months as a hired employee of the hero's brother to heal the hero's injured leg (she is a physician therapist). The hero finds the little boy and denies that he is his because of his infertility. This claim is according to one doctor's opinion not two or three. This is what I liked the heroine for is her stubbornness in making the hero hold and watch their son throughout the book even if he was being a stubborn idiot. We can all see that the hero is gentle with the little boy and would be great with children. Now, here is what I found funny is the people close to the hero like the hero's housekeeper of over 30 years, basically family and the hero's older brother sees the alikeness between the boy and the hero. The hero's brother pushes him to take a DNA test or at least seek the opinion of a second doctor, even after finding out that the hero is infertile. When I say push, I mean push. Everyone can see how stubborn and proud the hero is like the brother, housekeeper, brother's wife, etc. It's ridiculous because the hero knows it but won't even acknowledge it like acknowledging his own son. After, the birth of the hero's brother's newborn son (the brother fainted during delivery, hilarious), the hero tells the heroine that he wants to take a DNA Test, which of course upsets the heroine. I mean who wouldn't be upset when the man you love and called your husband wants the Test that suggests the heroine was intimate with other men and the fact the hero won't take the heroine's word on the baby being his because he wants to see the proof for himself. Then the heroine and hero become intimate themselves in the Jacuzzi, which I found again ridiculous. This is because the heroine is having intercourse with the man who doesn't believe in her and denies his son. Then the hero goes off thinking these thoughts about the heroine going back to the "other man", while here I am thinking wishing to hit a 2D character with a rolling pin over his pride. The hero and heroine have another conversation of who's the father, which goes immensely south. The reasons are that if the boy is the hero's then he wants to raise him since he has "rights" but the heroine is against it because the hero doesn't believe her, she states the hero wants an heir not a son, and the fact the hero for most of the book has denied the son as his own. Then the twist comes out when the hero admits that he can't have kids, something that the heroine had no idea. So, the whole thing about not wanting kids was a lie and his reason for not telling her was that he didn't want to her to think that he was less of a man. His stubbornness and pride turned to stupidity thinking that his character as a person would be judged by his ability to have children. Wow, there are a tons of people of the world who don't have the ability to have children and while it's understandable to not broadcast it, I doubt some of them are lesser people. They can be kind, sympathetic, and understanding towards others. They can be wonderful examples of human beings. However, the hero sticks to the idea that good people can have kids and it destroyed his marriage. To quote from the heroine, "The ability to have a child has nothing to do with the value of a man. You're a slave to your stupid pride. " Preach dear, preach to the choir. The whole discussion ends horribly. By then, the hero starts to make sense that he put his pride before her and it costed them their marriage. It's only when the poor little boy gets a fever that leads the hero to pacing in the hospital that he admits to actually loving both heroine and the son and he will tell them when the little boy is better. Luckily, it's a simple fever and we wait for the hero to tell the heroine of his feelings till they're back home with the housekeeper handing the DNA test results. The hero opens the letter and sees results come back positive in the department of being father and son. What does the hero do? He says and I quote because I want the readers to hear this, "I'm his real father, the doctor was wrong, we can have a bigger family, and Let's GET MARRIED for the BABY!" Are you kidding me?! You had a fabulous little speech of I love you to the heroine and you blew it?! Over the test results, you thought the heroine would jump into your arms, after declaring that out in the open. Wow, all the injuries he had must have consisted with some permanent brain damage. It was no surprise that the heroine didn't have a happy smile plastered on her face but more of a surprise that she didn't file the divorce papers that he signed because she was still in love with him. Her little speech gives him the fear to actually say, "I need you, I can't live without you." That starts a lovely little grovel speech from the hero to the heroine. It was a nice ending but I do wish someone had smacked the man over the head over his stupidity.
