From New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new standalone romance about a woman who’d do anything to have a baby and the man who’d do anything to have her…
For my 30th birthday, I’m giving myself the one thing I want most: a baby. Sure, this would be easier if I had a husband—or even a boyfriend—but I refuse to be thwarted by minor details.
When I drunkenly confess my plans to my friends, they convince me to ask Jake Jackson for help. Jake, the best friend who’s been there for me through thick and thin. Jake, who also happens to be smart, funny, ridiculously good looking, and the winner of all the genetic lotteries.
So when Jake takes me up on my request—with the stipulation that we get the job done the old-fashioned way—I’d be a fool to decline.
The only problem? I don’t know if I can separate sex from all the things I feel for this amazing man. If I can’t keep my heart under lock and key, I risk losing the relationship I need the most.
Jake has his own reasons for granting my baby wish. But when I discover his secrets, it could mean the end of us. I have to choose—run or stay and fight for love.
Fall for the boys of Jackson Harbor in Lexi Ryan’s sexy new contemporary romance series. These books can all be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy reading them as a series!
I devoured this book!
Friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes. And this book definitely didn’t disappoint!
The chemistry between Jake and Ava is scorching, even though they both want to deny it. It finally becomes too much to hold back once, after some drunken courage, Ava asks Jake to help her have a baby. He agrees, but only if they do it the old fashioned way. Both go in thinking they can handle it without it ruining their friendship. And they end up finding out their true feelings for each other. This was a funny, steamy, page turning read!
Such a beautiful, emotional, sexy and romantic story!
I really loved the first book in The Boys of Jackson Harbor Series, so I just had to read this one!! OMG! Lexi Ryan is moving up on my list of one click authors!
This was such a sweet friends to lovers romance. Jake! Oh lord, Jake is such a sweet, sexy, dependable friend....how she remained JUST his friend for so long, I do not know! Except that Ava hasn’t always been treated very nice by the men in her life, her father, her ex-husband....they put her down and made her feel not enough. It was ALWAYS her friendship with Jake that got her through everything. He was always there for her. And when Ava decides she’s gonna have a baby, it’s Jake who is going to be there for her again. Why? Because Jake loves Ava.
Don’t miss this one guys. It’s a beautiful story. It gets very emotional at times, but you will love it! Just look at that cover, aren’t they a gorgeous couple?! And I must say Jake is definitely perfect book boyfriend material!!
Loved this book and jake and Ava ! Such a good story line, but I finished to fast n have to wait for he next one in August? I hope it’s Colton’s story or should I say Molly’s? Jake and Ava’s story had many turns but such a heart felt ending. A definite must read.
