Baby Daddy by Kendall Ryan | Book Review

Reading Group: M for Mature

Synopses: 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. 

Cover: This is one of those books that I would never buy the paperback version of because I'm too self conscious to risk being seen with it. I love a good romance novel, but I don't need the strangers around me to know what I'm reading.  

My Review: I downloaded this book onto my phone because I have the app Book+Main where authors post samples of their work and I read some pieces on there and really enjoyed it.  I read it before bed over the course of two nights and I really enjoyed it.  It's a simple story really: Girl asks boy to have a no strings attached relationship because she wants a kind, strings get very much attached, happily ever after.  I'm such a sucker for books like this because they're easy and enjoyable to read.  Perfect for ending a day spent writing papers and working on presentations.  I really liked how Jenna knew what she wanted and was going to go for it no matter.  Then, of course, Emmett comes in and shakes up her plans a little bit, but her end goal is still the same as it always was.  It's Emmett who really needs to reevaluate his future and decide what he wants out of his life.  He's afraid of settling down because he watched his own parents fail at marriage and doesn't want to do that to someone else.  It takes some convincing from the people around him to make him realize that he isn't the carbon copy of his father and there are things he can do differently to have a happier life.  The interesting twist is that Jenna is pregnant with his baby, so he has to be either all in or all out.
