We met in a trapped elevator.
Emmett was on his way to work, sophisticated and handsome in his tailored suit and tie.
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 s-e-x! Enjoy.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
OMG! Could this book be any more perfect?? I’m sure some people will question the “reality” of letting the hot, sexy suit-clad guy you get stuck in an elevator with convincing you to let him knock you up the natural way instead of the sperm bank you were going to use. Sure, I wouldn’t do it either in real life. But this is fiction, and it’s a romance. AND IT WAS FREAKING BRILLIANT!
Baby Daddy was everything I was hoping for and more. And the only way your lady bits won’t melt into a puddle of goo is if you’re a guy and have the other kind of equipment.
“I thought I could walk away unscathed. I had no idea what the fuck I was signing up for, and now all I want is Jenna and our baby”.
Jenna is used to going for what she wants. And with her own business up and running, even if it’s struggling a bit, she’s ready for the next thing in her dreams list: a baby. Tired of waiting for the right guy, she’s decided to go at it alone and be a single mom. After all, her own mother didn’t do such a bad job. She wasn’t counting on getting stuck with the guy of her dreams in an elevator at her first appointment with the clinic. Much less for the complete hotness that was Emmet to offer her to get her the baby she wants but the real fun way.
Emmet’s dick has never steered him wrong, so when Jenna tells him what she wants, he’s all for lending her a helping hand…or any other body part needed. He’s way too busy running his family company to have a relationship, much less a family. He’d seen his own father crash and burn and he’s not about to repeat the same mistakes. So he’ll get the hot chick pregnant, and he’ll get to sex her out of his system by then. Probably.
Even though both Jenna and Emmet are clear heading into their arrangement, things begin to change. And the more time they spend together, the more they realize just how perfect they work together. Clearly, if they just had some balls and talked about their growing feelings with the other everything would work itself out in a second. But where would be the fun in that, right?
I totally loved Emmet. He starts off as an anti-commitment manwhore, but soon we get to know where his issues come from and as it turns out, he’s really a complete cutie-pie. He was sweet, loving, sexy as hell and had some serious moves. He had his jerk reactions, but it was understandable. He totally made me swoon.
Jenna was incredibly driven, smart and assertive. I loved how she went after what she wanted and didn’t get caught up in too much drama. I wish she could have been a bit more open about her feelings to Emmet, but I still loved how their relationship unfolded.
With a slight “You’ve got mail” (only one of the best romance movies of all times IMHO) feel to the story, Baby Daddy was absolutely perfect for me. It’s fun and sweet, filled with awesome banter, hot as all hell baby-making shenanigans and one of the best book boyfriend’s I’ve read in a long time. The epilogue that just kept on giving was the cherry on the top of this fantastic story.
