Derek Webster's world gets turned upside down when his nineteen-year-old pregnant sister, Ashlynn, is injured in a car accident. The doctors manage to save the infant, but Ashlynn succumbs to her injures. Derek becomes guardian to his nephew and discovers it leaves him little or no time to socialize.

Chance Richards is at the top of his game. He has a job he loves and a loving family. The only thing he lacks is a serious relationship. He meets Derek, a young man with a gorgeous soul and a six-month old baby. The two of them may be happy together, or Chance's fears and vulnerabilities about the future can put an end to them before their relationship starts.

Daddy by Default by Shawn Bailey is a super emotional read I just could not stop reading. I loved the characters and the super sweet ending to this story.
Derek when we first meet him is at his lowest point in his life. His sister and her fiance have been in a car crash. They both do not make it, but his sister's unborn baby does make it. Derek only has his sister, his parents are dead. His sister's fiance has not family either. So Derek becomes a father. He is 24 years old and has no idea of what to do. But he knows this, he will be the best father he can to the little one left behind.
Chance happens to catch Derek playing with the little one in the park about six months later. He takes a picture of the happy moment and that leads to getting to know Derek. Derek is not forth coming with everything about himself at first. Chance seems almost too good to be true, he is sweet, kind, and just loves talking and being around Derek. He doesn't seem to mind the little one either.
I loved the ordinary feel to this book. It is not over the top, but done just right. I like the super sweet ending to this one too. This is the kind of story you read for a feel good kind of story. For me this one is a must read for anyone who loves to fall in love.
