Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is my first book by this author but it definitely won't be the last. I absolutely love her writing style and her way of drawing you into these characters and make you have strong feelings for each character." 
BRAB Online Book Club


Kim Golden has a really beautiful writing style where sometimes it didn't even feel like I was reading, I was just THERE. Oh, and I can't not mention the way she weaved the fact that this all happens in a foreign(to me) country into the story. You don't miss the fact that you're in a new place, but it didn't feel strange. I felt quite at home with Laney and Mads and...*insert eyeroll* Niklas.

Definitely a recommended read!
- Christina C. Jones, author of A Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Getting Schooled 


"When I read Kim Golden's book Maybe Baby, all I could keep thinking was, 'yes, yes, yes!' This book delighted me on so many levels I can't even begin to tell you. 
Nia Forrester, author of The Come Up and Lifted

This was a really great story. It had me captivated from the beginning to the end. The story began with Laney and Nicklas returning home from the States to Sweden and you immediately get an idea that all is not well in the relationship. The development of the story was really good and allow you the reader to get emotionally involved. This is a story about life and love and sometimes finding our destiny in the process. I am so rooting for Laney and Mads...yep, Mads!

I gave this book 4 stars because I really don't like cliffhangers, especially when you don't have any idea when the next book will be released or ever released! When I got to the end, I was like, crap, not again!!

Sometimes, the wrong thing is the right thing to do. Love doesn't always come in neat, tidy packages and Laney learns a lot about herself on her journey to following her heart. I've owned this book for less than 24 hours and I've already read it twice. Kim Golden is officially on my 'must buy' list!

**I received a free advanced reading copy of this ebook from the author in exchanged for my fair and honest review.**

“Maybe Baby” by Kim Golden is an incredible book of one woman facing a fork in the road of her life. Told from a first person perspective, the book is incredibly well-written with characters that are full of depth. Main character Laney’s number one priority has suddenly become to have a child, yet her long-time partner isn’t so sure. In her quest to achieve her desire, she finds herself at a crossroads and isn’t sure which way to go.

The rich storytelling is woven in a beautiful manner with first person narrative, and the reader can really feel the pain of Laney while she is struggling to discover herself and what really matters in life. The story stayed with me long after I had stopped reading. The author knows how to make an impact with readers and connect them to the characters in a delightful way that allows them to watch the story unfold as if they are witnessing events firsthand. A great book that is highly recommended!

There are a lot of self-published, first-person romance and erotica novels today for readers willing to give them a try. There are few however that will keep you from wanting to drop-kick the main character in the face after ten chapters. With Maybe Baby, author Kim Golden keeps the reader non-violent with dynamic and believable characterization, and calculated restraint.

Golden’s main character, Laney Halliwell is not only humble and complex, but being an American living in Stockholm, Sweden (as is Golden), she gives reader a unique perspective with which to take in the setting and behaviors of the other characters. The story also takes Laney to Copenhagen where she visits a sperm bank and meets Mads, the man that makes her contemplate leaving her five-year lover Niklas and his two teenage children, whom she doesn’t have the best relationship with. Add to this that both of her romantic relationships are interracial, and you have a deliciously fresh cultural flavor palate that would spice up any romance story already told on either side of the Atlantic. Gorgeous, flawed, unique, and funny you can’t help but love Golden’s characters, especially Laney.

But while some authors give us too much description, Golden at times reins Laney in a little too tightly and leaves the reader wanting more. References to Swedish authors and locations are sometimes made with little or no description, and for the English only reader that is unfamiliar with Stockholm or Copenhagen it is at times impossible to know if it is a street or place being travelled past by the main character. While this is the Google age, it is a shame that many readers will have to stop reading to figure out where the characters are taking them as Golden’s prose deserve the reader’s full attention.

This is the first book I've read by this author and I really liked it! This book dealt with a very common but not often talked about scenario of: What do you do when one of people in the relationship changes his/her mind about having children? Of course that was only one aspect of the book that I found interesting. I also enjoyed the European settings, intense love affair and "different but interesting circumstances" surrounding the heroine's love interest.

Maybe Baby is an excellent story about love, being in love, slipping out of love and finding new love. Laney decides she wants a baby with her current live in lover in Stockholm but a trip to Copenhagen to research donor facilities changes all of their lives in irrevocable ways. Kimberly Golden spins a wonderful story about love, life and change...

At 33-years-old, Laney Hallowell wants a baby with her Swedish partner of five years, Niklas. Niklas refuses to have a child with Laney. He rejects reversal of his vasectomy, a procedure he had not shared with her.
Laney suggests adoption. Again, he refuses, giving several reasons to dissuade her. His two teenage children from a previous marriage live with them. He believes although her role as stepmother is not formally recognized, she is their ‘mother.’
Niklas, a psychotherapist, has close ties with his former wife. He is indulgent with his children and shows no concern, ignoring their bad behavior. He particularly shows unconcern for his 18-year-old daughter’s conduct in their home and disrespect toward Laney.
Disappointed with Niklas’s decision, Laney decides to explore a fertility clinic without discussing it with him. Although business travel takes her to Demark for the Swedish firm she works for, she decides to seek the assistance of a sperm bank there recommended by her cousin.
In Denmark, Laney meets Mads, a skilled, imaginative Danish carpenter. Mads is a steadfast and sensitive man.
I do not want to give the story away, but Mads and Laney are immediately drawn to each other and become entangled in a passionate relationship. Later, thorny legal issues emerge.
What I liked about this book was it revealed the desperation of fertile and infertile women who want to have a child by their willing and unwilling partners or husbands.
I like that it revealed Laney’s childhood history with her parents. It gave you some aspect of her previous failed relationships with suitors. Maybe in the past, she didn’t elicit satisfying relationships with men prior to Niklas because of her father’s unloving and exceptionally critical behavior.
