"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."
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!

There's another man in this story. Mads is a Dane and the description of him was immediately enticing but as I got to know him, it was his personality and interactions that made him ultimately attractive. Laney in Mads' company was a woman freed and her personality shone through.
The book had a number of elements that worked for me, it was unpredictable, slightly forbidden, a little angsty but with plenty of hope. The relationships had great heat but it didn't feel like the key focus of this book and I felt the balance of this was just right as the story line was meaty and real.
This book was set between Sweden and Denmark and I enjoyed the setting. My mother is Scandanavian, so I could picture visually some aspects of the story but I think any reader would engage with the setting. It was a nice change from the US or the UK.
I'm looking forward to reading the next books in the series and I have found a new author I like.
The author provided a copy of this book in return for an honest review.

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!!
“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!
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.
But Golden’s economy with language is also a treat for readers looking for a page-turning read to tear through – about a third of the way into the book the author, while keeping the action going, tells us that a character goes on a analogous rant without transcribing it for example. Maybe Baby’s story, which does have a tendency to be somewhat plot-driven especially near the end, may have been predictable in another authors hands but thankfully Golden’s skill comes to the rescue once again and there are some genuine surprises waiting for the reader as well as some beautiful and emotional love scenes.
Maybe Baby isn’t likely going to make the reader want to run out and get pregnant, but it will sure leave her hot and titillated enough to practice.
