Synopsis From Goodreads:

After a year of partying, Sam decides to buckle down and focus on college. Things are going great until a one-night stand leaves her pregnant and alone. Raising a child while going to school isn’t easy, but Sam is determined to be strong for her daughter. She doesn’t have time for guys or relationships, and takes great care to protect her child and her heart.

Judd doesn’t fit the mold of a college ballplayer. His long hair and tattoos may fit the life he’s created for himself, but baseball is the one thing he takes seriously. When he meets Sam, he’s immediately drawn to her curves and refusal to put up with his crap. When Judd learns the truth, can he handle the responsibility that comes with loving a single mother?

Sam yearns for the fire that Judd fuels in her, but her child’s needs have to come first. Can two people at different stages in their life find a way to make a life together?

This was such a cute and sweet story. I loved everything about it. I've been dying to read Indelible ever since I took part in the Cover Reveal back in June. I really love that cover, and it's exactly what I picture Sam looking like.

Sam was a great protagonist, and I really liked her. She was a single mother trying to juggle school, work, and her daughter. I felt proud of her accomplishments, and I thought she was strong for not needing a man around to make her feel good about herself. She was so courageous for doing what she did near the end of the book, and I could totally understand her decision to do what she thought was best for everyone involved.

Sam managed to surround herself with the right people, and stayed away from anything and anyone who could potentially hurt her daughter. I really liked Sam's friends. They were so supportive of her! I thought they gave great advice, and they were always there when she needed them.

I ended up really loving Judd. He starts out with a bit of a questionable reputation, but he quickly won me (and Sam!) over. He turned out to be a stand up guy with a big heart. He was patient and understanding, and just what Sam needed in her life. Plus, it didn't hurt that Judd was pretty darn adorable when he was around Sam's 2 year old daughter.

The relationship between Sam and Judd was enjoyable to read about, and I liked that it took time to develop. I loved how honest they were able to be with each other, which made it easy to want their relationship to work out. I liked that Lopez managed to create a realistic conflict between Sam and Judd that they had to work through, and she wrote it without the over the top drama and angst that seems to plague NA books.

The pacing was great, the writing was terrific, and the romance was believable. This is such a lovely story with real characters. It has a cute and sweet romance, and it was a really quick read. I do wish the book was longer because I enjoyed it so much, and I liked spending time with the characters. In the end, this book left me with a huge case of the warm fuzzies. Indelible was a very satisfying and wonderful story that I highly recommend.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
