Publisher's Summary

Have my baby.

That was what my single-dad best friend, Seth, said to me while I was waitressing at the diner.

His little girl wants a sibling. But Seth is a workaholic millionaire and doesn't have time to meet someone.

Someone who won't screw him over, like his kid's mother.

Only problem is this someone has secretly been in love with him since high school. I've been hiding it forever, not wanting to risk our friendship.

Sleeping with him is my biggest fantasy. And I've fantasized plenty, being a virgin. Another thing he doesn't know.

Now, I have to make the biggest decision of my life.

Is having a no-strings-attached affair just to make a baby better than never having him at all?

Author’s note: This case of insta-love and insta-naked-time has been brewing for over a decade. Babymaking has never been so hot...or so funny...or so complicated.

Friends to Lovers

A good friends to lovers story is a plot that is always entertaining, seeing what the change is, were they always in love, will they still be friends if things don't work out. Throw in a single dad to this mix, and Taryn Quinn has given us something delicious to listen to. Seth and Ally have one of those relationships forged in high school that is so strong, they both know the love is there. But if they tell each other, where will it lead? Leave it up to Seth. When he ends up divorced with his custody of his toddler daughter, Laurie, he decides that it's time to expand his family, and what better way than with his best friend? The plot from there is both hot, the banter is fun and there is nothing more entrancing than a dad with his child. In this case though, Ally with Laurie is just as warm and sweet. Add Seth's twin brother Oliver and Laurie's best friend Sage into the mix and the story has a cast that is easy to fall for.

This audio in duet narration with Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross brings the story to life, so you will experience the journey these two take. Deciding to trust, determining a future and understanding why things are the way they are performed so well, it's like we are watching the couple learn and grow together. The chemistry between these two narrators is evident in their portrayal giving us a realistic happily ever after.

Sweet and funny story!

This was my first Taryn Quinn's book and I love her writing. I really enjoyed my listening. This is a friends to lovers story. I love the two main characters Seth and Ally and of course the little one, Laurie, Seth's daughter. I also love the other characters, Oliver, Seth's brother, and Sage, Ally's best friend. This story is sweet, funny and heartwarming. The narration was very great and easy to listen, as always with Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross. I can't wait to listen to Sage and Oliver's story!

Fun, witty read

The storyline had me hooked, the banter kept me laughing, and the chemistry had me fanning my face. I loved everything about this book.

The narration was amazing! Love Wen and Kai.

That performance, though!

I was so pleasantly surprised by this story! I now realize I was becoming a really picky reader; I only listened to books by Emma Chase/Lauren Blakely/K. Bromberg, and now I'm so glad I branched out! I'd never heard either of the narrators before, and I absolutely love them. I was really impressed with how expressive and natural the two sounded together. Also, I was really impressed by the fact that both narrators participated in every chapter, in conversations and in instances where a female or male voice was specifically required. I'd never heard anything like it. The story was very cute, too. I'm a sucker for single dads, so I couldn't help but love Seth, even though he could be a bit pushy at times.

I highly recommend this book. It's refreshing and heartfelt, and a complete pleasure to listen to.

Fantastic

I loved this story. I didn't want it to get. Looking forward to more by this author as this is the first audio of theirs that I have listened to.

Worth a try...

It was pretty good. I liked the story a lot...but didn't love it.

It may be the listening that made it tough to decipher what was happening at certain times in the book at times when a lot of people were around (trying to figure out who was taking) or how it switched topics without really letting the reader know...or if they were internally thinking vs talking. So I guess its more structure or delivery. Also, they kept repeating the same thing over again. We learned about the 4 years old in chapter 1...in other chapters she was reintroduced. We get it.
I'm not a fan of when the narrator's talk in the other persons chapter either. If its the male's chapter they usually convert their voice when the female is speaking...not in this book...instead the female narrator will say whatever and then the male will finish speaking. That added to the confusion for me.

I still liked the story though.

The overall story was good though. A dad after a baby instead of the mom. The you have the male female BFF turn lover thing going on.

Give it a try with patience in tote. I like to re-read my favs...I can't see me reading this again. HOWEVER...there is a book 2 that I'm interested in. The story line seems pretty good. Not looking forward to the narration though.

fiction.

I'm the type that likes to give a story a chance, I like to listen to the end too see if I would keep it or it goes back. I tried, I really tried but I just couldn't connect with the story or characters. I really had hope this one too but I'm sorry.
Thank you to the author for writing this and I hope in the future I'll like something else but not this story.

Had potential

This story had potential but the reading is so dry it sucks the romance out of the scenes. I barely got half way through before I gave up.

Liked it!

What does Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have to admit it was different having the constant go between with the voices. Usually it is the same person portraying the two different people. This I had to get used to, but it was nice.

Any additional comments?

I really think the author or whomever should have researched how a 4 year old really talks. The narrator made this 4 year old sound VERY babyish. I know she was not a big player in the book but when Kai Kennicott was doing the voice for "Lori" it was bad. I wasn't sure if I was listening to a 2 year old or what.

Great family

Loved this, these characters are great together but I am going to say Laurie stole the show. Kai did an amazing job with her. I love a good single dad story and can’t wait for the next one. All narration was great!
