Book Description (via Goodreads): Abandoned by her father at a young age, beauty therapist, Patricia Owusu, has learned the hard way that men can’t be relied on. She’s determined to make it on her own without falling into the cultural trappings of marriage. However, when she finds herself pregnant after a torrid love affair with African-American financial consultant, Ty Webber, she discovers one man’s resolve to stick around. When Ty discovers Patricia is carrying his baby, he offers marriage, because real men take responsibility for their actions. He isn’t prepared for Patricia’s stubborn determination to make it on her own. But nothing will prevent him from claiming his child or the woman he considers his. Can Ty convince Patricia to take a chance on him to help provide a loving home for their baby, or will Patricia’s mistrust lead her to miss out on true love and rob her child of the type of father she never had?
I have been given this book in exchange for an honest review. I have given Expecting Ty’s Baby by Empi Baryeh five out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book is specifically for adult readers only, due to the explicit language and sexual scenes throughout the book.
I really, REALLY enjoyed this book! I was completely enticed in the characters and events which were happening in Ghana. This book was saucy, passionate, sexy and incredibly well-written. I loved the African traditional cultural parts you learn about within the pages of this book, the author used a very informative approach which worked well.
The two main characters; Patricia and Ty, were very likeable and I loved reading from both of their POVs, it’s definitely one of my favourite styles of a book when there are two main characters and I get to see both of their perspectives. Patricia was a very stubborn character, but not to the point where I found her annoying, just in the sense that she was independent and wouldn’t let anyone really tell her what to do or how to do things. I was sceptical at first with Ty’s character as I thought he’d turn out to be horrible and disrespectful after finding out he has a child on the way, but my judgemental thoughts were wrong and I ended up really liking him and his personality. The characters were well-developed and I found myself very invested in Patricia and Ty’s relationship, especially when the drama erupted in the book!
The storyline worked really well and although I would have loved for the story to never end and to read more stories about Patricia, Ty and to see their baby born and to grow up, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the parts I did get to read. My imagination has definitely wandered over the past day to different events and situations I think Patricia and Ty may end up in if there was a sequel.
Although this book can be read as a standalone, I would have liked to have read the first book in the series, as this was about two characters called Naaki and Thane, who were mentioned quite a lot in this book.
I would definitely recommend readers of adult, passionate romance, contemporary genres to pick up this book and see what you think.
