My Stepbrother's Baby by Sarwah Creed

Evan Stewart was more than a dream — he was Anita’s waking obsession. But he didn’t know who she was and she was hellbent on changing that. Taking wild courage under the cover of an extreme, nearly unrecognizable makeover, Anita stole the show at a party she wasn’t invited to, stealing Evan’s attention too. And if she had been told her dreams would come true, she just might have lost her marbles sooner.

Evan had a taste of heaven on the stranger’s lips and just as soon it happened, she was gone. However, when he discovers her in school, he makes it clear that hell would break loose if he didn't have her again and keep her for good. What Evan doesn't account for, though, is Anita’s revelation. She was pregnant.
