Kendall Ryan's taken the arranged pregnancy romance story line and given it a touch of You've Got Mail, the Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan hit film. Emmett Smith is a bit of a playboy, but there are reasons why he doesn't do committed relationships, misplaced as those reasons may be. Same goes for Jenna Porter, but she's got pregnancy on the brain, especially with her being in her thirties. She isn't looking for the hassle of dating and meeting "the one". She doesn't need to settle down with a man in order to have a child together with him. She may have decided to go to a fertility clinic, but getting stuck in a stalled elevator with Emmett has her taking a whole different direction.
Jenna's need for independence had her wanting to be more clinical about their approach, but Emmett brought out the more "fun" side of things by insisiting they do things the old-fashioned way. We've got the usual not-falling-for-each-other-but-then-they-do is present in the story, but then they're supposed to fall in love! That's why it's a romance. We want the happy ending. I do wish, though, that the author had done things a little differently. Maybe added a twist or two to allow it to stand out. That doesn't mean, though, that I Ryan didn't satisfy with this standalone. She did. As far as the narration goes, Sebastian York did sound as if he was dialing it in at times, but kudos to Virginia Rose for her work. Baby Daddy is a four-star listen. ♥

This book was sexy to the max! Kendall's writing draws you in with ease. I don't know how to describe it... It is written in a relatable way- not showy with fancy wording- but using slang or funny sayings I would use. She can put a witty enjoyable spin on anything.
I adore these characters! I don't like giving away plot so all I will say is that I was yelling at them the whole way. I thought the plot was awesome- definitely something lots of women can relate to. Absolutely loved it!
Narration was fabulous! It passed all my criteria for what i like in a narrator. Voices were clear- pleasing to listen to- read with feeling and soul- I have ZERO complaints!

Predictable yet enjoyable read following CEO Emmett, who in his way to the office gets stuck in an elevator with Jenna, Jenna is on her way to the sperm bank. During their small talk in the elevator (they are the only two in it after all), it is more or less decided that Emmett will become said sperm donor, the story then follows them as they boink like rabbits and try their best not to get attached to each other, or god forbid, fall in love. Obviously there is a lot more to it than that, there’s even a little twist in the storyline. Fun flirty read, lovely characters, although Jenna did annoy me a little in the earlier chapters. The narration by Sebastian York was faultless, CEO definitely works for him.
Loved this book, great story to it, loved the characters, one of my favourite books, read and listen to it over and over again!
These two characters are definitely challenging...both gorgeous and both head strong ... and chance meeting in a broken down lift.... and there it all begins ... just love how these two fights their feelings...they are so ment for each other ...definitely worth a read ... loved it... 💕💕💕
There isn't a Lauren Blakely book i've ever listened to and no laughed so loud, made aww noises here and there, loved where one chara5was about to be blindsided but had no way out in future chapters and this didn't disappoint. In todays world, women going parenthood alone is a norm *not that its a good thing whenn it comes to kids and their growth but somwtimes its bleak*
And then sometimes things change, your plans go out the window because love wants in and you let it.
I loved this story so much.
