A hot and hilarious new standalone from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan.
I was on my way to the sperm bank. Awkward, right?
At thirty-five, my life hadn’t taken the path I thought it would and I was tired of waiting—I wanted a baby. And I was ready to take matters into my own hands to make it happen.
After our ill-fated elevator encounter, Emmett insisted on taking me to dinner—he also insisted on something else—that I ditch my plan involving a turkey baster and let him do the job. He would be my baby daddy. He was a wealthy and powerful CEO with little interest in diapers or playdates. And since he didn’t want kids, I’d be on my own once his bun was in my oven, free to go my own way.
But once his baby was inside me, it was like a switch had been flipped, and I got a whole lot more than I ever bargained for.
This full-length standalone contains a hot, swoonworthy hero, lots of playful banter and some hot baby-making ! Enjoy.
Emmett Smith had me rolling my eyes right out of the gate. It didn’t get much better as I worked my way down the first page. Jenna Porter makes up for my inopportune eye movement by getting me to laugh. It’s at that point that I decided I’m really going to enjoy what this author has created.
Emmett seems to be very conceited. Found myself hoping the author gives him a reality check moment. Jenna gives me pause because she says one thing but then she seems to act differently – as if her head and heart are at war with each other. Then add a big temptation into the mix that can help with getting us to laugh. Our author does a good job in showing how frustrated Jenna can get. Then we get frustrated – what’s happening!
For the female reader, the author has created an interesting solution to a simple womanly issue. Makes you want to try it out just to see if it actually works. If not, at least you had a good time in the process. And that’s one thing you’ll realize about this story – it’s both fun and funny (after all fun is the beginning of the word – a word that will get you to laugh).
Some people don’t like to get involved in a series because they end up getting disappointed but this book is a standalone. It’s a great way to experience an author’s writing style. And being tagged as a romantic comedy you want to make sure that it’s going to make you laugh. She’s an author that will give you a steamy book but she makes it humorous. If you’re having a bad day what better way to make it better, than when it started, by reading a book that will get you to at least let out a chuckle – and the ending will certainly leave you with that.
