Baby Daddy by Kendall Ryan
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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
From awkward elevator conversation to making a baby together?!? My first thought was, what the heck, how did that happen? As always, Kendall Ryan took the improbable and turned it into something that became a fairy tale!
Jenna has become disillusioned by life. Men are unreliable, and she doesn’t really have time for them anyway. The rest of her life isn’t what she thought it would be either. But there is one dream that she has, that she is determined to make come true regardless of how she has to accomplish it. She wants a child!
Emmett thinks he has everything that he ever wanted. He’s rich, successful, and single, with no thought to having a family. He comes up with this crazy scheme to help Jenna out, no strings attached. But things never turn out how you think they will.
Emmett seems to be a whole lot more than he appears to be on the outside, at first glance. Turns out, he isn’t a playboy at heart, but a big teddy bear! I love those kinds of guys! They are my favorite kinds of heroes! I love how he was so sweet with Jenna, SWOON!!!!
This book is a touching, sweet story, with plot twists that I didn’t see coming. It just proves that life gives you what you need, not what you think you want!
