A hot and hilarious new standalone from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan.

We met in a trapped elevator.

Emmett was on his way to work, sophisticated and handsome in his tailored suit and tie. I was on my way to the sperm bank. Awkward, right? At thirty-five, my life hadn’t taken the path I thought it would and I was tired of waiting—I wanted a baby. And I was ready to take matters into my own hands to make it happen. After our ill-fated elevator encounter, Emmett insisted on taking me to dinner—he also insisted on something else—that I ditch my plan involving a turkey baster and let him do the job. He would be my baby daddy. He was a wealthy and powerful CEO with little interest in diapers or playdates. And since he didn’t want kids, I’d be on my own once his bun was in my oven, free to go my own way. But once his baby was inside me, it was like a switch had been flipped, and I got a whole lot more than I ever bargained for. This full-length standalone contains a hot, swoonworthy hero, lots of playful banter and some hot baby-making ! Enjoy.

Kendall Ryan is a one click author for me. I always enjoy her stories and know they'll leave me wanting more. Baby Daddy took me a minute to get into-simply because some parts were a little too relatable for me, but once I reminded myself it was a book I was able to just enjoy it.

Jenna and Emmett meet in a way that had me chuckling. There's attraction there but Jenna is a woman on a mission for the one thing Emmett wants no part of. I can understand that focus, that drive on Jenna's part. I can admire it. I understood where she was coming from.

That being said, I understood Emmett as well. He was a good book boyfriend-even though he never intended to be one. I enjoyed watching him grow throughout this book.

As I said, the chemistry is there. The sexy times were sexy, but there was more to this book than just that. These characters had me laughing and they had me sighing others. I thought their journey together was unique and really well written.

Now, as for the story...this isn't my first baby book I've read this year. This is a popular trope right now but Kendall Ryan has a knack for making things unique and fresh. I enjoyed the writing in this book-parts of it just had me cracking up. I think the pacing worked as well. I truly enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

Let's be real for a second. This is the current hot trope. We all know it. And, I am not complaining, BUT what I am saying is in order to have a book that pulls me in when it seems like every other title out there has the same plot? Well, that is going to take an author who can tell a story.

Kendall Ryan can tell a story.

Emmett and Jenna meet in an elevator and have an oddly intimate conversation for a first meeting. I guess the fact that they are trapped together, and the fact that he knows where Jenna is heading lead to this. But, for me, I thought it was a little fast.

That said, once we get past this, the book is fun, flirty, hot and enjoyable.

As I said at the beginning of this review, in order for the book in this trope to work, it has to be well written. This one absolutely was. You like and relate to the characters, and you enjoy the things that happen to them while they are developing their relationship and learning that their attraction just might be something that is still there once the "baby making" has happened.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
