The Rules of the Baby Maker's Club are simple:Never ask him who he is.Never meet outside the club.Never fall in love.

I've always wanted to be a mother. But to have a baby you need a man... or money for a proper donor. Let's just say dating is my weak point. And money? It's in short supply.When a co-worker catches me googling cute baby photos, she whispers a name: The Baby Maker's Club.That's how I was introduced to my nameless, well-hung hero.His job was to knock me up. No dates, no drama, just me and him and the horizontal tango.But I messed up bad.I found out his name. Then I googled him.Now, I wish I could forget the truth I learned about my personal baby-maker, but I can't.I might have broken the first two rules of the club, but someone like him—a walking Adonis with a devil's smile and a dark secret—he did something way worse.He made me fall in love.

By LilyA quick fun read!

This is a short fun read that takes a ridiculous idea where before you know it makes it sound like a fabulous one. The concept behind a Baby Makers Club is rather absurd, that is until it becomes apparent the conventional method of falling pregnant for Kate was looking like an impossible feat.  

Kate encounters one failed date too many. Convinced she has run out of options, she reconsiders reaching out to her friend who offered to put her in touch with the highly secretive Baby Maker’s Club. She’s taken by surprise by the friendly welcome she receives and decides she has nothing to lose. The agreement includes no contact outside of the arrangement and no falling in love. No worries, easy right?

Now here is where the conundrum begins to build. Chaucer, the guy she is matched with is so considerate and easy going he makes not falling for him a massive challenge! It is obvious to her that she is never going to be able to distance herself and let alone maintain distant. That is until she breaks one of the golden rules and finds her reason to back away from the exclusive club.

Kate and Chaucer were easy characters to like. Wanting them to find a way to be together was not a question of why, but when. I would have liked to have a little more of the back story of the people behind the Mosaic club but the story was over before I gave it a second thought.

There were other niggling scenarios that popped up that irked me but didn’t put me off continuing. The one example that stood out was the use of the word bludgeoned, a description that conjures up imagery of destruction rather than the alternate state of feeling lustfully sated.

The Baby Maker’s Club was a good quick escape in between darker reads. Sometimes I just need a book where no blood is shed and this book fitted that bill perfectly. If you read the synopsis, it basically tells you the story-line and so I’ll not say anything more than I am glad I decided to read it.
