Publisher's Summary

Srikkanth Bhattacharya is a quintessential gay bachelor and perfectly happy about it—until he gets a call from the local hospital telling him his best friend died in childbirth. Sri had agreed to provide the sperm to make Jill's dream of motherhood come true, but he'd never expected to have to make decisions for a baby girl. He intends to place her with an adoptive family, but once he sees her, Sri can’t bring himself to do it. So now he’s struggling to learn how to deal with a newborn. His housemate and friend, Jaime Frias, volunteers to help, never guessing he’ll fall in love with both the baby and Sri.
Everything seems perfect until a visit from Social Services sends Sri into a tailspin, feeling like he has to choose between his daughter and a relationship with the man he’s coming to love.

Surprisingly realistic

Any additional comments?

I have listened to dozens of gay male themed books on Audible. Many of them are supernatural fantasy or unrealistic romantic tales. This book had been in my “Wish List” for over a year. I was somewhat skeptical about listening to a book about gay men read by a female narrator. To my surprise, this was a fantastic book that explored so many issues that I could one day face. The narrator was superb and the way she read the story made me regret that I even considered her gender as a factor. This truly is a great story that I can realistically seeing happening to myself or one of my friends. Give it a chance.

Sweet but oh so boring

It is really a shame this books fails on so many levels. The writing is not great, the narrator is wooden and the story is just so contrived to be laughable. I love gay dad stories because I love the "family" aspect of it. The fact the families with same sex couples are no different in every way that counts than any other family. I can't even name all the ways this story went awry, but I will try. First, the story reads like a technical manual for first time parents, complete with the naming of popular name brand of baby supplies and medical advice. Really, medical advice, can you even do that if you are not a doctor? For a while I thought I was listening to a commercial or a message from the CDC. And the narrator reads it like it is a public service announcement very wooden and no emotional depth at all. Then the romance btwn friends starts out good, but then the author contrives this completely unrealistic "fear of child protective services" as a plot device. It fails miserably b/c it is just too stupid and the MCs reactions to it are way out of proportion. Then there is some pseudo family drama that turns into nothing. The bottom line is this is a very boring read and the narrator is horrible.
