Publisher's Summary

Growing up, Jill Garrison never daydreamed about having the perfect wedding. Instead, she dreamt about having a baby. Boy or girl, it didn't matter. Unfortunately, her fiancé can't have children. Determined to realize her lifelong dream of having a baby, Jill spends years searching for a company (CryoCorp) that provides high-quality donor sperm.

Everything is right in Jill's world until her wedding day, when her fiancé leaves her at the altar to be humiliated before friends and family. She doesn't waste any time moving from New York City to California to start over. And she keeps her appointment with CryoCorp. She may never have the wedding or the husband, but nothing is going to stop her from having a baby. She's tired of everyone telling her what to do. The baby she's carrying is hers and hers alone. Nobody can take that away from her. Or can they?

Doesn't seem like a professional wrote it

Any additional comments?

The story was cute...it just seemed like it was written by an amateur....The dialog was so cheesy and the characters didn't' seem real. I can't put my finger on it but it reminded me a lot of the stories on the fan-fiction sites or on other amateur writing sites.

Wonderful Story full of Surprises

What made the experience of listening to Having My Baby the most enjoyable?

The characters were unusual, likable and real and the Hero's family added a lot to the appeal.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that Jill got a good deal in the end. I felt she deserved it.

What didn’t you like about Sarah Drew’s performance?

Sorry but the performance was AWFUL. First narrator that nearly had me stop listening. Her Lexi voice grated on my nerves. She gets so shrill at times.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I had to force myself to finish, which is unusual. Especially when Lexi spoke.

Any additional comments?

Great Author but the Audiobook was ruined for me by the Narrator.

Do not waste a credit.

Would you try another book from Theresa Ragan and/or Sarah Drew?

I would not purchase another book from this author.

Would you ever listen to anything by Theresa Ragan again?

The narrator was talented. It is not her fault that the story was so bad.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

Was Having My Baby worth the listening time?

No, not at all.

Any additional comments?

This is the worst, unrealistic plot I have ever heard of. I cannot believe I made it through the whole thing.

glad this was cheap, really annoying narration

Should have listened to the sample, my mistake. Really would have been mad if I had wasted a credit on this, got it on the cheap sale. The story itself wasn't so bad, predictable but sometimes I'm in the mood for a romance like this one. But the narration was so annoying I could hardly finish it. Every voice had some kind of gravelly note to it, and the voice of the little girl I could hardly stand at all. Will never listen to another book by this narrator. Too bad as the story itself was ok.

Disappointing on so many levels

What disappointed you about Having My Baby?

Not only was the story very unoriginal, but the characters were annoying, and the reader was wrong for this book. I didn't like any of the characters. I wanted to like the book. The premise sounded interesting. It was just completely disappointing on so many levels.

Has Having My Baby turned you off from other books in this genre?

Fortunately, I like the genre. I just know now not to select any other books by this author. I know that not all Romance novels are completely original, but this one was just too predictable from the very beginning. Plus, it was not well written.

What didn’t you like about Sarah Drew’s performance?

I have listened to Sarah Drew perform other books, but those were Young Adult. Her voice fit well with those. However, with this book, she was out of her element. Grown men should not sound like whiny, 14 year old boys. I spent too much time being distracted by the performer.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. The only reason I continued listening was because I paid for the book.

What other book might you compare Having My Baby to and why?

What does Sarah Drew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Any additional comments?
