There are three little words most guys don’t want to hear on the first date. Not those…I mean these… “knock me up.”

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it’s not true love. It’s a bun in the oven, and I’m not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and charming — and he’s also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.

I won’t fall for him, he won’t fall for me, and there’s no way baby will make three.

There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date — “your place or mine?”

When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place — as well as any position — I can’t refuse. Besides, I've got my own reasons to take her up on her deal even with her one BIG condition.

There’s no way I’ll want more from one woman than any position, any where, any night? Except . . . what if I do?

Note: Be prepared to swoon and fan yourself from the heat! This full-length standalone contains lots of hot baby-making s-e-x, happy tears, naughty jokes and a hot, swoonworthy hero you will fall madly in love with.


From the moment I read the blurb on this book I knew it had to be mine. So of course the moment it went on sale I ordered that sucker up and devoured it, loving every minute!

Nicole wants a baby and not really feeling any of the donor descriptions from the sperm bank, she decides to ask her gorgeous coworker Ryder if he would be willing to make a contribution to help make her dreams come true. Of course Ryder agrees on one condition, they make the baby the old-fashioned way instead. Neither are looking for love but you know what they say about love finding you when you aren’t looking for it…

I absolutely loved this book from start to finish! Both Nicole and Ryder work at Hanky Panky Love where they host radio shows and write columns that focus on dating, love, romance, and sex. So of course both of these two were insanely confident and comfortable with sex, having no problems flirting and teasing at work while remaining friends. Even before the deal was made they had me smiling with every interaction. I loved Nicole’s conviction in what she wanted and how fun-loving and adventurous she was. Ryder was incredibly swoony and thoughtful, planning these spectacular dates like trapeze lessons and cupcake tasting that not only served as research for his work but also helped grow their relationship and connection to each other. Obviously there was a fair amount of hanky panky going on between these two in an effort to get Nicole pregnant. Their chemistry was hot and sexy and all I look for in a romance.

There is seriously not one thing about this book that I didn’t love. The plot was fun with a great mixture of sweet, sexy, hilarious, and even some tender moments that made my heart ache a little. The characters were well-rounded and relatable, and the romance was to die for! This was my first novel by the author and now I have the joy of checking out her previous work while I wait for what’s next!

    This sort of sounds like the beginning of the movie Baby Mama with Nicole wanting to be pregnant and doing whatever it takes to get that way. I love that she was confident in herself enough to straight up ask a coworker for his help. I have a feeling I know how this one ends up 😉 but regardless it sounds like a story I’d love getting to read to make sure that ending does happen. You’ve definitely convinced me to buy this!
