Baby Daddy by Kendall Ryan
Review: I was a bit excited to read this book, I thought the plot sounded fun and light. Sadly, I was mistaken. The book moves at a fast pace and skips moments in time, just so that the author can get to what she wants to write about. This is not a bad thing, but it needs to move smoothly and less obvious.
When looking for a fun and hot romance, I found just a glossed overview of two characters meeting and falling for each other. There was no depth to the characters themselves and only hinted at what could be so much more to them. Now that I would like to read.
Although I was looking forward to jumping into this book, I was let down on many levels -the characters lacked dimension-no chemistry between the two-the idea of the plot was better then the overall book.
I would also like to say that many others might enjoy and love this book. I’m just saying my own opinion. I have nothing against the author or the book itself, I just did not enjoy reading it.
Favorite quote: not really my favorite but definitely stood out.
“It’s that simple. I love my dick, and loving my dick makes my entire life better”.
“Some well-meaning friends told me that love would find me once I stopped looking. They lied. Fuckers”.
“I have never inserted a tampon so angrily in my life”.
“#YouSpankIt #WeBankIt #YouJackIt #WePackIt”
Would I? Buy this book in print? Nope. Reread? Nope. Recommend to others? Only if they like quick and simple romance with no real obstacles.
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars.

Summary: 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.
