Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new stand-alone romance about a woman who’d do anything to have a baby and the man who'd do anything to have her.  

For my 30th birthday, I'm giving myself the one thing I want most: a baby. Sure, this would be easier if I had a husband - or even a boyfriend - but I refuse to be thwarted by minor details.   

When I drunkenly confess my plans to my friends, they convince me to ask Jake Jackson for help. Jake, the best friend who's been there for me through thick and thin. Jake, who also happens to be smart, funny, ridiculously good looking, and the winner of all the genetic lotteries. 

So when Jake takes me up on my request - with the stipulation that we get the job done the old-fashioned way - I'd be a fool to decline.   

The only problem? I don't know if I can separate sex from all the things I feel for this amazing man. If I can't keep my heart under lock and key, I risk losing the relationship I need the most.   

Jake has his own reasons for granting my baby wish. But when I discover his secrets, it could mean the end of us. I have to choose - run or stay and fight for love.   

Fall for the boys of Jackson Harbor in Lexi Ryan's sexy new contemporary romance series. These books can all be listened to as stand-alones, but you'll enjoy listening to them as a series!

NOT A FEEL-GOOD ROMANCE

This should’ve been a sweet fell-good friends-to-lovers romance.. but instead I just felt oh so bad - especially for the hero Jake who’d been in love with Ava his best friend for as long as he could remember.. and that was a long long time. We learn he even declared his undying love and devotion the night Ava got engaged to someone else but this self-centred annoying heroine sent him packing. However, her childless marriage failed and an invitation to her ex’s new wife’s baby shower arrives which sets off Ava’s biological clock and longing.. so now she’s going to use Jake as a sperm donor to make her dreams come true. This starts off an emotional and heart-achingly difficult push ‘n pull for Jake as he’s gambling his heart to win Ava.. but all of Ava’s past relationship insecurities (which are many) are brought to life and Jake has to first demolish every one of her demons. But Ava isn’t the only one with demons of the past.. because a flesh and blood demon is going to stir-up trouble and cause waves just as their HEA horizon is in sight.

Worth a credit? No, not for me. It’s narrated well and Ava’s closed-off feelings towards Jake are eventually clarified.. but it’s too little too late as there were several times I just wanted to stop this annoying feel-bad dual POV story that unfortunately didn’t bring out the best of me. Because my heart broke again and again for Jake, my anger rose over their drawn-out undeclared feelings, my temper flared wishing someone would please knock some sense into them, I prayed for patience.. or that they’d just talk to each other.. and, as the predicted angst played out threatening their HEA ending, I cringed at the drama that followed. I usually like Lexi Ryan’s books.. but sadly I’ll be returning this one because it hurt too much.
