I struggled with Phoenix's cajun vernacular I assume that's what it was and as a result, I found myself skimming through parts of the story. That said, he was a sweet character and his bond with Embry had all the feels.
I did find all of the justifications for Embry and Pheonix to be together after Codrick's death a little difficult to fathom especially when you take into 2 "it was okay" Stars An interesting story with loveable characters but it just didn't hit the mark with me for some reason. I did find all of the justifications for Embry and Pheonix to be together after Codrick's death a little difficult to fathom especially when you take into account the feelings all three had for each other growing up.
Clearly, Embry was unknowingly destined to be with Phoenix but the many reasons listed as to why Codrick would be in support of their relationship from beyond the grave they even went as far as vocalising his feelings for him was, in fact, beyond me!
The MMA part of the story and the reasons behind it seemed to be more penned in the wings than part of the actual story at times and overall, the story felt a little rushed and underprepared, sadly.
I can see my feelings are in the minority, so far, but this story just didn't live up to my expectations, unfortunately. We are proud to provide honest and unbiased reviews written from the heart.

Feb 26, Lynda Dickson rated it liked it Recommends it for: Unable to cope with her grief, Embry runs away to college, vowing to never return, while best friend Phoenix buries himself in his memories, his work, and in cleaning up his father's mess.
Just over a year later, Embry comes home to visit her father in hospital. She struggles with her growing feelings for Phoenix, while he tries to keep his love for her hidden. Can you have more than one soulmate? The story is told in alternating chapters from the points of view of Embry and Phoenix. The story could be improved by introducing the reader to Codrick while he is still alive, seeing his interactions with Embry, and getting a feel for this love that is so strong it leads two teenagers to get engaged.
His Cajun accent is also annoying, and he lapses out of it, especially when he is narrating. On the plus side, the story gives us a realistic depiction of the seven stages of grief: Not what I was expecting from the description. I received this book in return for an honest review. Feb 02, Paula Phillips rated it liked it. When it comes to CM Stunich's books, I always feel in two boats.
I either love hers or I struggle with them. Baby Girl was one that I struggled my way through. I think it was first the fact that she was called "Baby Girl" as I hate that nickname, it is one of my pet hates. It's like is she going to call the guy she is with Daddy??. The book though does give you a massive OMG moment and instant emotional wave as the main female character is waiting on prom night with her best friend Phoenix and When it comes to CM Stunich's books, I always feel in two boats.
The book though does give you a massive OMG moment and instant emotional wave as the main female character is waiting on prom night with her best friend Phoenix and her boyfriend is on his way to pick her up when a tragedy occurs. This tragedy makes Baby Girl aka Embry collapse with grief and her ups and leaves for a year.
She returns home, and we read as she and Phoenix have an awkward reunion, but you have the hope that they will work out things and end together despite the sad history between the two of them. After reading the first chapter, you could see that Phoenix and Embry were meant to be together and that possibly Codrick is the third wheel in the romance.
If you are in the mood for a rollercoaster ride of emotions and wanting an ugly cry, then CM Stunich's new January release " Baby Girl" is the book for you.
Feb 06, Jamie Ellis rated it really liked it. It was a fast paced read. It had angst, hot sex and really good storyline. This is a lot different then her Rocker books for sure. Thanks Jamie Nibarger Ellis. Jan 29, Brandy rated it it was amazing. Freaking holy emotions Batman!! I so totally cried!!

Panty Scorching - 4 Angst - 3 Tissues - 3 Storyline - 4. I honestly didn't think it would be, but I was a little emotionally drained for the first half but in a good way! Codrick, Embry and Phoenix, the proverbial 3 peas in a pod. Best friends and even though Codrick and Embry are a couple its like the 3 of them are Embry turns into a shell of herself after the trio loses Codrick in a horrific accident.
Instead of turning to her family and Phoenix, she runs and turns off all her feelings for over a year and has no contact with Phoenix until she returns home for a family emergency. Even though we never get to meet Codrick formally, the author makes you feel Embry and Codrick's love through her writing and you can feel the actual pain and sorrow Embry feels when he dies. My heart actually hurt. Not just for Embry but for Phoenix as well. Not only does he lose Codrick, but he loses Embry when she leaves and has no contact with him.
He is just as broken as she is. It's a heart wrenching charged story of healing and rebuilding a broken heart and friendship when one of the pieces is forever gone. I love, love, loved Phoenix. I have never read and was able to actually picture a character more than I did with Phoenix. He was an alpha but had such a softer side when it comes to Embry that you can literally feel the love he has for her.
Embry has not even come close to dealing with her feelings of losing Codrick. Can she deal with what Phoenix is able to offer her? This was such a great story You could see and feel how Embry and Phoenix start to heal as individuals and as friends.
Great read and I highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed! Jan 29, Vickie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Embry lost the love of her life at the age of just seventeen.
Phoenix is a sweetheart. I loved him from the start. This story has all the feels. The story itself was a bit of a surprise to me. The connection they share and the chemistry between them, their shared past, their need to protect the other, their need to mend and the journey they take you on are all written brilliantly. This is a story of love, loss and second chances and I loved every word of it. Apr 20, Karen rated it liked it. Fun read with suspense and violence and set in the swamp of Louisiana.

Baby Girl will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride that you will not want to get off of. I think everyone will fall in love with Phoenix Benoit, the sexiest Cajun you will ever meet. Beautifully written story of lo CM is one of my all time favorite author that no matter what she writes I know without a shadow of a doubt that I will absolutely devour it.
Beautifully written story of loss, grieve, love and second chances that will have you glued to your kindle and not stop reading until the end. I voluntarily reviewed this Advanced Reader Copy of this book. Did they go through something tragic at a young age? Were they unprepared and unequipped to handle the fallout?
I felt that out of the two he matured the most. Did he still have demons he needed to fight? He had many areas of loss in the timeframe of a year, while still stuck in the town he grew up in. Phoenix is a big old teddy bear and has loved Embry, not so quietly, that Codrick even knew and encouraged them to kiss in front of him. It felt like the author almost wanted to touch upon a taboo topic of a triad relationship, but it was never fully developed in writing.
It was slightly weird. It was almost like it was filler for the main characters to do something. It just left me slightly confused and unsure how it all fit in. What to say about Embry.
When she is asked to return home for a family crisis, she almost reminds me of a bratty, juvenile child. The love that is shown through Phoenix is swoon-worthy. Embry does go through a lot to get to the realization that, maybe she had the wrong soulmate or the possibility that there could be more than one. Jan 29, Jennifer G rated it it was amazing. Embry, Codrick, and Phoenix; all part of one soul, all sharing one heart.
Shattered on senior prom night when a wet road and a car accident stole Codrick's life destroying all three. Embry runs, technically she took off for New York, to college but she went alone. They were all supposed to go together but only the shell of Embry made it to New York. For over a year she's lived a half-life trying to survive in the world without the boy she loved her whole life. Now she's back in town to visit her Embry, Codrick, and Phoenix; all part of one soul, all sharing one heart.
Now she's back in town to visit her family and her sick father. Codrick's ghost haunts her. Phoenix is still there. He not only lost his best friend that night but also the only girl he's ever loved, his bumblebee, his other half. And now he's in trouble. Embry doesn't want to feel anything but seeing Phoenix forces her to. He's as much a part of her heart and soul as Codrick ever was. How could she have forgotten? How could she have been so cruel to leave him too? Can she save him?
Can he save her? This book comes with a label from the author: It's a devastating read. The pain is palpable. It's a living entity that consumes Embry and Phoenix. Neither handles Codrick's death gracefully but loss isn't pretty. It hurts, it's real, it's raw. Embry was selfish in her grief, thoughtless.
She forgot about anyone else as the pain consumed her. Phoenix was reckless, seeking an escape. Both did more damage to themselves while separated. This book is emotional, it's a struggle. It's worth the read! The suspense added to the heartache, the immediate love you have for Embry and Phoenix, and the hopes you have for them make this book impossible to put down. Jan 26, Viktória Tóth rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this new story by C. Baby girl is a fast paced, emotional and mostly raw romance, not as much teetering on the edge of taboos but still representing quite a few unconventional relationship elements.
I think the warning in the beginning of the book is phased in an especially brilliant way. It sums up the I really enjoyed this new story by C. It sums up the atmosphere of the story quickly, simply but really efficiently.
The plot is simple and straightforward but really exciting, dynamic and eventful. The whole storyline has a beautiful and really thought out arc. I particularly flew through it. The plot mostly concentrates on grief and moving on. Her reaction to her loss is locking down and pretending it never happened while expecting from others to let her handle her feelings as she likes.
I can understand this but when she started to criticize and judge other for the way they grieved, she started to piss me off. I liked Phoenix even if he made a lot of bad decisions; he is kind of the victim of his circumstances. Yet I loved him in all his glory. The phenomenal plot, with the interesting characters and a couple of small things that I love in books like the MMA element or the tattoo shop just created the perfect combination.
Jan 31, Bobo's Book Bank rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book had me in it's clutch with the prologue alone I was crying ten minutes in! Thanks for the warning, Ms.
Phoenix, Embry and Codrick were best friends since childhood. And although they all loved each other deeply, it was always supposed to be Codrick and Embry together. This is NOT a love triangle, there's no cheating or menage situations! When tragedy strikes, their friendship falls apart.
This is the story of Embry and Phoenix putting the pieces back together. Phoenix had me swooning all over the place! Embry often described him as a "gentle giant" and he really was. He was charming, sweet, loving and incredibly patient with Embry and at the same time strong, passionate and protective. Plus, I loved his Cajun accent!
Embry struggled so much with her grief, it was palpable and intense and left her a shell of her former self. But she also had a wealth of courage buried under her sorrow and it took some tough situations to bring it to the surface. My heart ached for these two! And even though the "ghost" of their best friend hung over them, it was also that powerful connection that drew Phoenix and Embry together.
This is a friends to lovers, new adult romance with C. Stunich's signature sexy scenes but this also has some suspenseful moments that keeps the story moving at a fast pace. It gave me all the feels, pulled at my heart strings and was beautifully written amongst all the ugliness of grief.
Baby Girl is a story of love, grief, and forgiveness packed between bouts of action, mystery, and danger. Set in Louisiana, Pheonix and Embry have always considered themselves soulmates - of the best friend variety - until a tragedy forces them apart, and ultimately, a year later brings them together.4/5.
