Julia Saxon has been in love with her best friend since the moment she met him. The problem is, Lachlan Daniels was already in love with his model girlfriend. But she just dumped him, and the night of the Brownlow medal ceremony–the most prestigious award in Australian Rules Football–Julia is determined to win him over.
For one night, she believes she has succeeded, until in the morning he runs out in a panic, apparently regretting their passionate time together.
With the support of her friends, she tries to move on, and even manages to snag herself a boyfriend. Then, the vomiting starts.
When the pregnancy test shows up positive, Julia knows exactly who the father is; Lachlan. But that is all kinds of complicated as he continues to pine after his ex, who has moved on, although, she still toys with him.
When Julia makes the decision to keep the baby, her boyfriend leaves, unable to watch her carry his team mate’s child.
As the following months ensue, Lachie discovers the pregnancy and vows to stand by Julia. The pair struggle through a tumultuous and complicated relationship. When it comes down to it, Lachie will have to choose between Julia and their baby, or his ex. But Julia won’t go down without a fight for her happy ending, whether it’s with Lachie or not.
Brownlow Baby by Katie Hamstead
What an emotionally charged story. It was extremely intense. The descriptions during the game made you feel like you were actually watching it live. What a great job!

Can best friends who slept together go back to just friends, or will they lose everything they’ve had? To find out what happens with Julia and Lachlan you’ll have to read Brownlow Baby.
I laughed, shook my head at some of the stupid things men sometimes do, as well as cried. But I also smiled quite a bit. Yep all around great story! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via Xpresso Book Tours for an honest blog tour review.
