When it comes to relationships, Tess Callahan is gun-shy. An ambitious Atlanta divorce attorney, she’s seen the aftermath of relationships gone bad, which is why she has no time in her life for any man except for Nick Russo. Handsome and exciting, he’s the perfect choice to give her all she desires—including the fact he’s never around long enough for things to get complicated. Until suddenly they do.
Nick Russo has the world. His job as a photographer takes him everywhere, and he wouldn’t give that life up for anyone, not even the beautiful and brilliant Tess Callahan. Or so he thinks. An unexpected pregnancy is about to bring everything into focus, a brighter and more colorful world than he ever thought to imagine. The possibilities are endless, and they’re something he can capture not just on film but in reality.

I've enjoyed other books by Marilyn Baxter in the past, yet somehow missed the release of Picture This when it came out in July. I headed to Amazon as soon as I realized I'd missed her newest release and downloaded it to my kindle.
Picture This is a wonderful romance that was a really fast read for me. We had met Tess in Direct Deposit and I was glad she got her own story with Picture This. I really loved both Tess and Nick as individuals and loved watching their occasional hook-up arrangement change to something more. I totally laughed out loud when Tess and Nick ran into each other in a big-box store and he realized she was pregnant. Nothing like running into someone 8 months later only to discover the last night you had amazing sex, you also made a baby.
I loved that Nick stepped up immediately to help Tess out, and his family was super accepting once they found out as well. Both Nick and Tess are so ingrained in their jobs; I wondered how they would handle the day-to-day life once their baby was born. I wanted Tess and Nick to figure out a way they could be a family, as I could tell each totally loved the other.
I have to say I absolutely laughed until I cried as Tess told Nick off and cussed like a sailor on leave while she was giving birth. Honestly, I think the humor in Picture This was part of my favorite part of the story. I totally loved the romance between Nick and Tess, and loved watching them become a family.
Picture This is a sweet and funny romance. I really enjoyed the latest release from Marilyn Baxter and look forward to more books from her in the future.
