Liz Kingston spends her life delivering babies and longs for one of her own. All she needs is someone with fabulous genetic material. Who better to ask than her sexy ex-fling, who has no interest in ever settling down or being a father.

International correspondent Grant Wilbanks loves danger and travelling the world. But nothing in all this Brit’s experience could have prepared him for the way a torrid affair with Liz makes him feel. When she asks for his assistance, he figures he can help her out with a simple donation. No strings, no emotions, just…test-tube science.

But this simple favor gives them both more than they ever bargained for. Grant agrees to her terms, but stepping away gets harder and harder because the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling…and losing the battle to safeguard his heart.

My thoughts:
Sometimes I love a second chance romance! This book follows Liz who loves delivering babies and is now ready for her own.  Liz recently got divorced and had a fling with Grant the international reporter that she was stationed with while overseas.  Liz thought things where more serious than they were and eventually returned home without Grant.  Grant was covering a story overseas and made a career mistake and now has been sent to the small town that Liz lives in to cover another story.

I loved that the story is told from alternating POV’s of Liz and Grant.  While reading I got to see not only how Liz felt, but also Grant about the situation.  Liz was trying to stay very level headed and trying not to fall all the way down.  Grant was just trying to figure out how he could possibly want more from a woman since he was used to so much traveling and didn’t have a steady family life.

Grant grows leaps and bounds in this book.  I loved getting to learn about him and his upbringing, which I feel adds a lot to the story and makes the second chance romance work for this book.  Grant lost both of his parents at a young age and this has caused him to have commitment issues.  Grant has a lot to work through during this book to become the leading guy I was hoping for!

Liz gets the crazy idea that she can have a test-tube baby, for lack of a better word and not get to attached.   Liz is a strong and independent woman who wants to take the next step in her life and have a baby.  Liz seems to be struggling with some family pressure to have kids as well as wanting to move past her old life.

My biggest issue with the book was sometimes Liz would be on my nerves slightly.  Liz was feeling a lot of social pressure to have kids, but not everyone has kids at the same time.  Also, she thought she was too old to have kids in her young 30’s and she was definitely not too old to have kids.
I would suggest this as a weekend read.  The book was very short and fast paced it was a perfect weekend read.  I could sit down and get through this book quickly.

I received a copy of this book from the author to provide an honest review.  This does not affect my opinion of this book.

  1. I think the single-mother-by-choice angle is relevant, as it is something we are seeing more and more these days, but the selling point for me would be the second chance romance. I am such a huge fan of that. The prior history between the characters is always a plus for me.
