    Great story about a woman in her late 30's who has given up on finding the love of her life and the happy ever after. However, she hasn't given up on being a mom, so she decides on artificial insemination. Everything is going smoothly, until her good looking, single boss decides that being a single mommy isn't the right thing for baby. Very well written story. Both don't believe in love, but are willing to enter a MOC for the sake of the baby and a solid future. It was fun sitting on the sidelines watching these two work towards each other. Both the hero and heroine were written with great depth of character and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride to their HEA. My only regret, is there was one major conflict toward the end that really needed to be flushed out further to have more impact. Everything just wrapped up too neatly for my liking. But otherwise, a very enjoyable read.

    This was a cute book. Hannah’s firm asked her to interview with Luke. She does not want the job. She has heard that Luke eats his secretary’s for lunch. Luke’s secretary’s gets paid more because he is so hard to work for. Hannah does not want the firm to think she is not a team player. She is pregnant, and needs the health care insurance. So she agrees to the interview. She has fun in the interview, being very direct on what she will, and won’t do. She just knows her answers will make her seem like a team player, but will guarantee that she does not get the job. To her shock her plan backfires and she gets the job.The author wrote the book intending on the reader not feeling much of a connection between Luck, and Hannah, because Luke is so distant. I wished there would have been more of a connection, more sizzle between the two. I am glad Luke came around in the end.

    My favorite aspect of this novel is how both of the lead characters are intelligent and remain consistent with their perspectives throughout the story. Aside from a rather foolish/selfish decision by Hannah--a necessary device that gets the plot moving, and is later acknowledged as not the wisest decision--everything that both Hannah and Luke do is so refreshingly well-motivated. They make logical, clear-headed decisions, their motivations are well-explained by their backstories, and the conflict is entirely generated by the differences in their points of view. The chemistry takes a while to heat up, but even that transition feels entirely believable. In short, this romance never feels contrived, the climax is not the usual proposal trope--in fact, the wedding is merely a step along the way to building a strong *marriage*, a much more meaningful proposition--and the resolution of the sexual tension doesn't actually solve any problems: it just reveals the deeper issues of the heart that need to be addressed. A rich bit of insight there!The writing style is fresh and engaging, avoiding overwrought descriptions of either emotions or physical attraction while still conveying the strength of both. There are some clever moments of light humor amidst plenty of entirely reasonable / believable drama. Farr maintains the tension throughout with some very skillful doling out of the information from both characters' points of view. Farr makes it clear that she's done her background research (e.g., on the legal profession and childbearing) without ever once distracting from the story by putting too much of it on display. It bolsters the believability of the tale.There's a wonderfully healthy balance of power in the relationship. Luke's attempts to protect and provide for Hannah are often done in a steamrolling kind of way, because he believes that he's doing the right thing and in the optimal way (which, technically, he sort of is, but it's all truth with no grace). But she calls this behavior for what it is: he's controlling. This is not celebrated as a healthy dynamic, unlike some other popular romances I could name. :) The fact that she recognizes the unhealthy pattern and chooses to stand up to him (without throwing temper tantrums) is just mature and fantastic of her.The male lead also has a refreshingly well-balanced view of women. For example, I liked how Luke, when he's trying to convince Hannah to marry him, tells her that he thinks she's capable of being far more than a mere secretary and part of his argument for the marriage is that she'd be able to go back to school because he could support her financially. So awesome! He both wants her to be a stay-at-home mother and also to take the opportunity to build into herself professionally. Yay! What a concept! You can do both! (Just maybe not all at the same time. :)It was nice to see an intelligent, older female character who didn't fall into any of the stereotypes that I expected of a romance novel heroine. She might not be sexually experienced, but she still knows herself and is confident in her abilities and stands up to even the man she's fallen in love with, despite being physically at a disadvantage. It's a nice distinction to make in a culture that seems to equate sexual experience with maturity / adulthood.I would highly recommend this sweet romance, an easy read in an evening or two, and well worth your time!

    Definitely a great read. It was emotionally at the end more so than rather the rest of the novel. I was happy things worked out between Hannah and Luke and the epilogue almost made me cry.

    4.5/5stars! My second book by Beverly Farr and so far it been a very happy trip. Loved the book! nice story- great characters. the only reason I didn't give it a whole 5 stars it because of the epilogue. I didn't like the epilogue at all and found it sorely lacking. When a book ends well, I, personally as a reader would happily overlook a poor beginning but if everything goes well from the start like this one did but the end is unsatisfactory, it leaves the reader annoyed and frustrated. I'm trying not to think of the last chapter while rating it. Would I recommend it or reread it?- definitely! The story was very good. Very enjoyable. Well paced. (save for the epilogue that could have been better)

    PGThis is exactly what I wanted it to be: a light, fun story. Didn't want anything deep or thought-provoking, just clean romance with some conflict to keep things interesting. Beverly Farr delivers every time!

    It was a good and cute read! I liked Hannah, although I didn't agree with her choice of having a baby for selfish reasons. I also liked Luke, he was even kind of sweet at times, although he was a jerk 6 times out of 10.

    Okay for a quick read Not bad, not great. Characters not fleshed out thoroughly. Wasn't hard to read, but wasn't overly interesting either. Do not recommend.

    Really enjoyed this story. Very much a screwball comedy. Netherlands characters have more depth and emotional vulnerability. Always clean and fun!

    I didn't feel much connection to or between the characters, but it was not a bad book.
