Yes, you read that correctly.
When my mother approached me on my thirty-third birthday with a brochure for egg freezing, it was a glaring reminder that my biological clock is ticking toward its expiration date. I’ve always dreamed of being a mom and had a plan — one that was destroyed when I caught my professional hockey player husband in bed with another woman.
Despite my broken heart I still believe in love. I want the happily ever after, but I also want a child desperately and won’t settle in order to make it happen.
That’s why when I decided to take my mother’s advice, Christian came up with his own plan: Let’s have a baby together.
It’s a bad idea. A really, really bad idea. And yet…I can’t stop thinking about how great it could be.
There’s just one condition. Before we have sex (oh, yes, we’re doing this the old fashioned way!) Christian is adamant we go on three dates.
Sounds easy, but it’s not.I thought sex would be the hard part, but the dates are only making me fall for the man I’ve known almost my entire life.
Whoever said sex doesn’t change things never went to bed with their best friend.

This is a cute, friends to lovers book and was fun to read. It did drag a bit by reiterating some stuff but picked right back up. Christian and Meadow have been friends for years and they have vacationed with their families, spent holidays together. Both of them have had huge crushes on each other but naturally the other doesn’t know it. Not only are they best friends but they work together. Christian is a top notch heart surgeon and Meadow is a nurse who happens to work at Christian’s fathers office.
Meadow has had a failed marriage and is still licking her wounds but her biological clock is ticking and since there is no new men on the horizon, she takes a cue from her mother who suggests freezing her eggs for when she does find someone. Once Christian gets wind of this idea, he has one of his own. For them to have a baby together and not by freezing her eggs…the old fashioned way. Can two friends who have secretly have feelings for each other have sex to create a baby and not fall even harder for each other? Can Meadow stand another heartbreak? Can Christian who is so driven to be the best, have time for a baby? Will he lose Meadow as a best friend if this back fires in there faces? Can Meadow keep her feelings for Christian in control?
Watching these two plan for a baby and get to the point where they have to do the “deed” was so fun to watch. Not only are there some comical moments, it was a romantic story as well. Love scenes were steamy and I loved watching these two realize that maybe a baby won’t be such a bad thing for their friendship after all. Could it make them even closer?
This was a super cute book and was definitely a feel good love story.
