With her thirtieth birthday looming, Emma Harrison finds her biological clock clanging and the elusive knight in shining armor yet to appear. She’s running out of options, especially after her gay best friend backs out from being her sperm donor. Of course, there’s always a sperm bank, but Emma fears a donor mix-up might impregnate her with the spawn of Satan.

Resident company womanizer, Aidan Fitzgerald, is used to always getting what he wants, especially in the bedroom. When Emma spurns his advances at the company Christmas party, he's determined to have her no matter what it takes. After Aidan learns of Emma's predicament, he is quick to offer a proposition that will benefit them both. He will father Emma's child, but she must conceive it with him naturally. Not one for hook-ups or casual sex, Emma is reluctant to take him up on his offer, but his charm, coupled with her intense desire for motherhood, wins out.

Soon their baby-making sessions become more than just physical. Aidan can't seem to walk away from her while Emma begins to wonder if Aidan could be the one. But can Aidan leave his past behind to become the man Emma needs him to be? 

So where do I begin? Emma Harrison wanted a baby, but the problem was that she hasn’t found the right guy. Yet. After her gay best friend backs out from being her sperm donor, Aidan Fitzgerald, a notable womanizer offered to be the father of her baby with one condition. The baby must be conceived naturally. 

I never thought that I would like the book so much. I wasn’t a big fan of story where the characters would fell in love through physical romance, but I love this one.  Emma was such a sweetheart. She wanted to be a mother more than anything. I love that she showed both her strengths and weaknesses. Aidan was a hot and sexy notable player. He was terrified of commitment after a bad relationship in the past.

I love the flow and story line  There were lots of serious moments as well as the funny one. The secondary characters were very likeable. I especially like Aidan’s family. I love that even though Emma and Aiden got together because of, well, sex, I’m glad that they really got to know each other through conversations and romances. I love the romances. Emma and Aidan were very cute together. This is one of the books that made me grin idiotically.

What I didn’t really like was the ending. The cliffhanger! Why? So... I purchased the next book, The Proposal, as soon as I finished this one. I just cannot wait to read what will happen to them.
