From Goodreads:

With her thirtieth birthday looming, Emma Harrison finds her biological clock clanging and the elusive knight in shining armor yet to appear. She’s running out of options, especially after her gay best friend backs out from being her sperm donor. Of course, there’s always a sperm bank, but Emma fears a donor mix-up might impregnate her with the spawn of Satan.

Resident company womanizer, Aidan Fitzgerald, is used to always getting what he wants, especially in the bedroom. When Emma spurns his advances at the company Christmas party, he's determined to have her no matter what it takes. After Aidan learns of Emma's predicament, he is quick to offer a proposition that will benefit them both. He will father Emma's child, but she must conceive it with him naturally. Not one for hook-ups or casual sex, Emma is reluctant to take him up on his offer, but his charm, coupled with her intense desire for motherhood, wins out.

Soon their baby-making sessions become more than just physical. Aidan can't seem to walk away from her while Emma begins to wonder if Aidan could be the one. But can Aidan leave his past behind to become the man Emma needs him to be.

My Thoughts:

3 stars - An interesting premise with lots of steam!

What I liked about this book was the premise.  Girl wants to get pregnant.  Boy wants to get some.  Great.  Let's do it together.  But life is never that easy and this book showed that.

Aidan truly is a womanizer with a heart.  When push comes to shove, he's really not as bad as his reputation would say.  Instead, he is mostly a selfish guy that never really thinks about the other side of things.  When Emma points things out with "that mouth of hers', he's quick to make things right.

Emma wants a baby so bad it's consuming her.  Willing to try anything to have one, she agrees to Aidan's desires.  But she falls pretty darn fast for the bad boy.

Almost too predictable, this was one scorching hot scene after another.  I could have told Emma what would happen.  Actually, I think she could have guessed before her heart got involved.

With a killer cliff hanger ending, this one will definitely have you wanting to download book two.  Good thing it just came out.  Check this book out if you like your books heavily steamed!

  1. Hmm I think I would pass on this one. I like good steam, but the predictability I think would bother me. Great review!

  2. Hmmm, this sounds predictable, but still good. I want the steam, Val!
