The h's trashy room mate gets pregnant and the h decides to find her a baby daddy. Apparently the friend is drop dead gorgeous with a great job but doesn't have great taste in boyfriends and the baby's father, an unemployed actor, has disappeared. The H lives in the same building as the h and has decided she's the perfect, mousy type to take back to a wedding in his small hometown in Minnesota, to impress his old, frail father figure with old school ideas. In the meanwhile the H thinks the h is pregnant and decides to pay her to go with him to the wedding but she insists on taking the trashy friend as a chaperone. The whole time the h is trying to set the H up with the pregnant (did I mention trashy?) girlfriend and even lets the H think that she is the pregnant one. It just goes on and on and I just got fed up with it. No sane woman, attracted to a guy, would sacrifice a decent relationship for said trashy friend who didn't want him anyway.
I will never get the time back that I spent on this book.
Easy peasy, right?
Not so much!
Caught up in her quest to fix her best friend's problem, tunnel vision blinds her to some major issues; one of them being that not everyone who answers an on-line classified ad is above board. She runs into some...interesting...characters, to say the least.
Russell, the guy in the apartment below Grace, likes what he knows about her. She doesn't wear makeup and she dresses demurely. His best friend's grandfather--Russell's mentor--is dying and it's his wish to see Russell settled down with a good woman. However, Russell doesn't have any intention of marrying for a good long time, but he's willing to give the performance of his life to make his mentor happy.
Grace, The Perfect Woman, as Russell comes to think of her, fits the `pretend girlfriend' bill to a `T'...until he accidentally discovers the pregnancy test in the trash. That's when misunderstandings arise, opinions change, and Russell and Grace struggle to deny their growing feelings for each other.
Russell makes it his mission to find the baby's low-life father--the one who'd `taken advantage of a good girl like Grace'--and Grace adds Russell's name to the Daddy Wanted shortlist.
DADDY WANTED is one of those stories that keep you reading to the lovely end. The story flows beautifully, the dialogue is quick, smart, and real. Before reading Daddy Wanted, I wasn't particularly interested in turtles. However, Ms. Marzec changed my mind by introducing the supporting character, Ulysses. I would never have used the word sweet to describe a reptile, but Ulysses smashes through my preconceived ideas.
Great book! I highly recommend it.
Russell Thrope, their upstairs neighbor, would work out nicely for Elyse, but it seemed he had plans of his own and for Grace, not Elyse. But he wanted a strictly business deal with Grace. He needed an emergency date.
Through a series of unfortunate incidents and calamities the threesome face catastrophes in life and love. Will Grace find a Daddy for Elyse's baby since Aidan, the father, has fled the scene? Can Grace stick by her principals and find someone to love or will she step aside so Elyse can find the right man.
Penelope Marzec writes a delightful story. Her character, Grace, seems to get into one incident after another and I couldn't put the book down because I had to know if Grace and Elyse would be all right in the end. Daddy Wanted is a cute love story.
