Conflicted Love (Needle's Kiss #2) by Lola Stark

Conflicted Love (Needle's Kiss, #2)

 Trip’s life motto is simple: get in, get off, get out. His lifestyle works for him, that is until he finds himself in an unexpected situation with the one girl he can't seem to get out of his mind.

Teeny has been strong for too long. One amazing crazy night, with her best friend's cocky colleague, leaves her with more than just unwanted feelings and cravings she just can’t seem to quench.

She's knocked up.
He's freaked out.

Life is about to get crazy for two people who can't stand to be close, yet can't seem to pull apart. Tension and confusion turn into mood swings and midnight snacks. How can things ever go back to simple times when every direction leads to chaos?
Teeny is freaking out - she got pregnant after a drunken night with Trip, and she is not sure whether to keep the baby or not.  Teeny's mom battled depression and overdosed when she was only 8, and then her father left her just a year later.  She's never had a family - and now she's living in a small apartment in the bad section of town, barely getting by.
Trip lives up to his name - because he is "a trip" for sure!  He's been a player, but he's always had a thing for Teeny, and he might have been shocked at first to find out she's pregnant, but he's willing to do all he can.  He wants more with Teeny and to prove it he starts by unexpectedly showing up at her ultrasound appointment - surprising the heck out of her.  His reaction to what he sees, makes her decision about the baby an easy one.
"We made that.  That's our baby, Princess"  A single tear fell down my cheek as I looked from the screen to Teeny's stomach and back to her face" 
Trip decides to show Teeny he's in this for the long haul.  He wants to prove to her that he not only cares and loves the baby - but her too.  Teeny has her doubts, and fights him along the way.  She's trying to protect her own heart, but she knows deep down she loves Trip.  Trip is confident and sure of himself.  He knows Teeny is putting up walls, but he keeps proving himself over and over again - and his sweetness of how he takes care of her during her pregnancy will have you wishing he was your baby's daddy!
I loved how devoted Trip was, how he never gave up on Teeny.  How he knew what she needed - and persisted and gave her the family she deserved.  There were so many parts in this book that made me laugh out loud too!  To anyone who has ever given birth, Trip in the delivery room will totally have you cracking up with his comments - and then swooning, when he holds his baby for the first time.  I absolutely loved this book - and cannot wait to see what happens when Trip and Mace get a hold of Jude - now that they know he's involved with their sister Haven!
