Emmett Smith is all about having fun but is one and done with commitment as he only has time for his work. His motto based on his own family experience: "Why get married and have kids when it'll lead to unhappiness especially when work comes first." But then he meets Jenna, a 35 year old career oriented woman who realizes all her years of devotion and hardwork to her business allowed her personal life to take a back seat. Her solution: a plan for single motherhood and a date with a sperm bank. But enter Fate: one stopped elevator, chance meeting and fiery chemistry later, Emmett now has Jenna convinced to give him a chance to be the "stud" for her future baby. But when lines get crossed and feelings develop, can these two realize what they have right in front of them is worth a chance at forever?
This book was amazing!! It was a hot and fun story that really hit the spot. It was sweet and sexy and gave me all the feels. Emmett and Jenna delivered the laughs, swoons and hot sexytimes that Kendall Ryan's books are known for!! While the twist was something that we could see a mile away, it was very well done and highly entertaining. I look forward to more from this author in the future. Bravo! 4.5 stars! ~Ratula
Both Jenna and Emmet are career driven. At their age, they have forsaken marriage, thinking they are not equipped to be lucky in love. But Jenna has an intense desire to be a mother, so she decided to have a child, even though she’s single. In Emmett’s case, his life is his work and his company, the one he inherited from his father. He has no desire for marriage, specially after seeing how his parents marriage ended up. When he met Jenna, he got the crazy idea that he would help her out, get some sexy times with her, and leave her with a baby, while he went on with his single life. Yeah, right...
Emmett’s idea of playing stud for Jenna was to have several dates followed by sexy times, but Jenna’s idea was more clinical. She wanted more like a bump and dump type of action. They had to negotiate and re-negotiate, and eventually they went out a couple of times to get to know each other and get to the sexy times. Since Emmett only had one-night flings with younger woman, being in a friends with benefits relation with Jenna brought to him the benefits of conversation with someone similar to him. He was entranced with their conversations, with Jenna’s personality, and her driving force. He was having a great time. He became entranced with Jenna, but she was more stubborn and fought off the attraction. They kept misreading each other’s motives and feelings for almost the whole book.
The book was fun and enjoyable. I liked both characters and liked how they kept inventing reasons for keeping in touch and seeing each other, even after Jenna was pregnant. I also liked how Emmett started thinking of the baby as his and wanting to be involved in the baby’s life. The rest of the story was predictable, due to the coincidence of Jenna’s bookstore with the store that Baxter Books wanted to buy out. As I stated before, the part that doesn’t sound real in the book is that fact that Emmett met Jenna when she was on the way to the sperm bank and he offers to impregnate her instead. And more incredibly, she accepted the offer, from a complete stranger. She didn’t even Google him before their first meet! It’s an outlandish beginning, but once you get over that, the rest of the book flows in a very romantic sexy novel that entertains.
Baby Daddy is a stand-alone novel. It is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Jenna & Emmett.
Baby Daddy was amusing and light. I found myself smiling at the interactions between Jenna and Emmett frequently. They had such fun chemistry and the way they challenged each other was endearing. I enjoyed watching them fumble their way through their strict, no emotions arrangement and discover along the way there was so much more between them than either had ever experienced or expected.
This book didn’t cross any revolutionary literary boundaries, it was easy and formulaic, but sometimes that kind of story is exactly what I need. Something that is going to entertain me, make me laugh, and just allow me a few hours of getting out of my head.
The only wish I have about this book would have been that it delved more into Jenna and Emmett’s pasts, particularly their childhoods. The broad strokes were covered enough to explain their particular fears and desires, but I had so many more questions. I’m inquisitive by nature, though, so I always find myself wanting to delve into the inner workings of what makes people tick.
My favorite thing about Kendall Ryan is her ability to write across several subgenres of romance without hesitation. She can write a romcom just as easily as she writes emotional contemporary romance.
