Straight Up Love (The Boys of Jackson Harbor, #2)

Review: Straight Up Love - Book #2 The Boys of Jackson Harbor - Lexi Ryan - May 2018
After reading the chapter sneak peek for Straight Up Love in the first book of this series, I knew I was going to love it and could not wait to get my hands on it and read it. I am a sucker for friends to lovers novels and even more so when they become our baby daddies, and they do it not because you asked but because deep down they love you and would do anything for you. That is the tale of Straight Up Love; we have best friends since school Ava and Jake. For as long as he can remember,  Jake has been in love with Ava, and he did try to tell her once, but it was bad timing as it was just before she was set to marry her ex. Things didn't quite work out, and Ava moved back to Jackson Harbor and got a job at Jake's bar. Now reaching the big 3-0, Ava has one goal in mind - she wants to become a mother, and though she has been looking at sperm donors, none of them seem just right. That is until in a drunken haze she asks Jake, and he agrees to help. We can see this is Jake's way to finally prove and show Ava that he is head over heels in love with her. Will Ava be open to having Jake as more than friends? What will happen though when Ava's stepsister arrives with a son almost five and the timeline possibly being Jake's son? I was glad in one way when the truth was revealed, but then I wanted to know more about the son's parentage as was the father Ava's brother or her actual dad? I am hoping we get to know the truth eventually. The only thing that I have to admit that annoys me about the friends to lovers storylines is the amount of game playing. I hate the to and fro'ing as be honest of course lines will become blurred and true romantic feelings will develop, stop freaking pussy-footing around it and tell the other person how you feel like 100% of the time - guess what, they feel the same way back.  I am now looking forward to the next story in the Boys of Jackson Harbor series by Lexi Ryan.
