The Delight

Going into Have My Baby, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Mostly used to Taryn Quinn writing rock stars, we pull up and change courses to a real estate agent and waitress going to school. The troupe of virgin best friend having your baby is still a cute ride. Throw in a young daughter, a twin brother and crazy friend and you have an endearing story of friends to parents to  lovers story.

Review

So when Seth’s daughter asks for a little sibling, Seth will do most anything to make her dream come true. But what does a four year old know about these things….nothing! After getting his girlfriend pregnant, marrying her and then having her leave him with sole custody of his beloved daughter, Seth doesn’t want the baggage that comes with a relationship. So he turns to his best friend, Ally! She won’t screw him over and they can treat it like a business arrangement while keeping their friendship.

Secretly, Ally has been in love with Seth forever. Friends for 10 years, with unrequited love. So when Seth walks into the diner where she works and stumbles through his proposition, Ally freaks out. How is she going to keep her feelings from him, make love with him, have a baby with him, but only remain a friend?

This story was sweet, spicy and a whole lot of humor. Treating this as a business arrangement when it totally isn’t was interesting to watch. Seth thinks he has it all worked out and in the end he will have a baby with his best friend and no romantic obligations or divorces. Only when the baby making sessions begin, he is troubled and confused by how his body and mind is reacting to Ally.

As the story moves along you realize Seth starts seeing Ally as a woman, not a friend, but still stumbles over everything. He’s a great dad to Laurie, who steels a few scenes herself. Oliver, Seth’s twin brother, lends his assistance to Ally and also Seth as they both bumble through the emotions of discovering what they wanted isn’t what they want now. Throw in Ally’s best friend, Sage, and the story stays light hearted and cute, but still retains the real emotions of two people made for each other.

While this isn’t a masterpiece, it has heart and love. I enjoyed my time with these two and look forward to seeing them in stories to come.

  • oh it looks nice!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I loved the baby troupe they used to write this. Best friends having a baby together…you know they are going to fall in love. I have the other two books reviewed and scheduled to show up over the coming days.

      • yes it’s always a nice and cute setting! I would be curious to see the reviews!

  • Karen

    “Dirty DILF’S” lol

    That’s a big leap – virgin to mom with no attachment. Yeah – that will work out well lol

    Sounds fun though.

      I love the series name!

      Yep, shew as his best friend and pretty much mom to is daughter when needed. She never really loved anyone else and was working on her degree while waitressing. So she agreed, lost her virginity and started capturing his heart.

  • Ha! I always think this ‘business’ arrangement set up is fun b/c everyone knows they are totally going to fall for each other. Cute with the baby element.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      It wasn’t so strict of a business contact, but one he hoped would keep their friendship even as they got intimate. But he was in for it. She grabbed him up! And of course he is a typical male and did everything wrong.

  • Shari Delighted Read

    Yep, friends and the guy wanting to buy her uterus for a while even if he doesn’t see it that way.

  • I actually like the sound of this one. I have to admit that based on the cover, title, and series title, I didn’t think it would really be for me but it sounds like a great story. Thanks for putting this one on my radar!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I liked all of them, but the first is probably my favorite. At least you know what you are getting with this series!
