Review: Baby Daddy
Baby Daddy by Kendall Ryan is a standalone romance told in dual POV. The story unfolds from an elevator incident (two complete strangers stuck together for two hours) to a full on love story complete with baby.
Let me back up, Jenna wants a baby. She is on her way to the sperm clinic to begin the process and gets stuck on an elevator with a very fine specimen of the male species, Emmett. He surmises she must be going to the spank bank and an embarrassing conversation ensues followed by an eager offer from Emmett to be the sperm donor instead of an anonymous spanker from the clinic. Entranced by his delicious smell, charming demeanor and entertaining banter she seriously considers the offer.
The sex and hilarity just continues from here. With a few angsty moments where neither one is able to communicate their feelings, meanwhile you, the reader, are whisper-yelling at your kindle for them to get their acts together and we end at a happily ever after. What did I miss? He is CEO of a large bookstore company that is trying to buy out a local small bookstore owned by Jenna. Neither one of them knows what the other one does specifically for work. hey both catch feelings early and try to play it off, sometimes convincingly, other times to so much. The characters bounce their wit and frustration off each other and are well-developed and the pace was well-done.
I haven't read a book yet by Kendall Ryan that I haven't loved. Enjoy!
“There are no guarantees in life. If you’re afraid to try, you’ll miss all the good stuff.”
Baby Daddy was such a sweet, fun, refreshing read with just enough angst to keep the pages turning. Once I started reading, I literally could not put it down. Jenna is such an independent, head-strong, determined heroine; it was refreshing! However, growing up without her father and her past relationships have her believing that men are only good for one thing: leaving. And Emmett...oh Emmett!! *SWOON* Emmett is sweet and charming and GAH, so sexy; but he’s been traumatized by his parents relationship and his view on love and marriage is completely skewed. Jenna is ready to start a family but has no intentions of that including a man. Emmett is more than happy to get her pregnant and then walk away just as Jenna requests. Unfortunately, neither of them planned for love to intervene and throw all their plans out the window!
I absolutely adored this book and I can’t wait to read it again!
Loved Emmett and Jenna!!!
This was a fun, sexy read!!
Seeing Emmett and Jenna go from a relationship of convenience, a means to get something, to falling in love was quite a ride. They fought there feelings, but there was no way they could resist each other. Add in a twist here and there, and you’ve got a great read that I would definitely recommend!
Hot and sexy
Kendall Ryan is a one click author for me. I always enjoy her stories and know they'll leave me wanting more. Baby Daddy took me a minute to get into-simply because some parts were a little too relatable for me, but once I reminded myself it was a book I was able to just enjoy it.
Jenna and Emmett meet in a way that had me chuckling. There's attraction there but Jenna is a woman on a mission for the one thing Emmett wants no part of. I can understand that focus, that drive on Jenna's part. I can admire it. I understood where she was coming from.
That being said, I understood Emmett as well. He was a good book boyfriend-even though he never intended to be one. I enjoyed watching him grow throughout this book.
As I said, the chemistry is there. The sexy times were sexy, but there was more to this book than just that. These characters had me laughing and they had me sighing others. I thought their journey together was unique and really well written.
Now, as for the story...this isn't my first baby book I've read this year. This is a popular trope right now but Kendall Ryan has a knack for making things unique and fresh. I enjoyed the writing in this book-parts of it just had me cracking up. I think the pacing worked as well. I truly enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
A new favorite
Who knew getting stuck in an elevator would lead to such an entertaining story. Of course their chances of survival would not be high if they were seriously stuck.
A bit predictable only in the fact if you try for a baby the old fashioned way, feelings have a high probability of coming into play. But this in no way takes away from the overall charm of Emmett and Jenna's story. "Ground rules" are laid out at the very beginning, but I loved how feelings quickly started changing but each was reluctant to let those feelings known. A few twists and surprises along the way. This is a wonderfully sexy book.
And Baby Makes Three
What do you do if you're a woman thats ready to have a baby, but there's no partner in the picture, and your biological clock has started ticking more loudly of late? Well, if you're Jenna Porter, you decide to take matters into your own hands, so to speak. But a funny thing happens on the way to the fertility clinic, a funny and very sexy thing, in the form of Emmett Smith. He's intrigued by the idea, and more than up to the challenge, of helping Jenna with her little problem. Let the games begin.
I love a good romantic comedy. What's not to like about a feel-good read, one that fogs up the windows, while leaving you with some laugh-out-loud moments? I mean, I enjoy a good angsty read, too, but the lighter side definitely has its appeal, and BABY DADDY by author Kendall Ryan hits all of the marks.
Jenna and Emmett have undeniable chemistry, the kind that engages right from the start. And, even though neither one wants more than the baby-making, it doesn't take long for all of the dratted feelings to kick in. Plenty of sexy times, yes, but the tender moments, the witty banter, the things that make a relationship just that, these are the things that I love the most about this book.
Kendall is one of my go-to authors, whether it's her alpha males and strong women, or her rom-coms with plenty of heart. Jenna and Emmett might be one of my favorite of her couples ever, and I thoroughly enjoyed their story. 4.5 sweet, sexy, delightful stars for BABY DADDY; add this one to your TBR and enjoy.

Generally love a Kendall Ryan book, however this one did not meet my expectations!
Just wasn’t good enough.
Phoning it in.
This book is boring and divisive. There was no plot twist I followed the classic hallmarks of the trope, it wasn't even very entertaining to be truthful. I don't say this to be rude but the "heroine" is Mary Sue through and through.
I <3 Emmett and Jenna
I thoroughly enjoyed Baby Daddy. Jenna and Emmett are both driven and determined characters. I enjoyed their relationship and how different it was. They just click with one another and form a strong connection in a short amount of time. The book is pretty fast paced, but it worked with the storyline. I enjoyed seeing how both their mind sets changed throughout the book. They're a cute pairing and share a lot of sweet moments together. The last few chapters were my favorites and very cute. It was wrapped up nicely with a good look at what their future holds for them.
Hot Baby Daddy
Another fabulous book by Kendall Ryan! From the moment Emmett and Jenna meet for the first time while stuck in an elevator together you know the chemistry between them is out of this world. These two are great as individuals and even better together. Jenna is on her way to a doctors appointment when she meets Emmett. While stuck they get to talking and Emmett offers to solve her problem for her...the old fashioned way. Emmett is immediately drawn to Jenna and wants her but realizes he can get that and solve her problem at the same time. It’s a great solution for both of them or so they think. Jenna wants a “pump and dump” and that is not how Emmett saw this going down. Emmett tells her that is not how he works and she concedes because she really just wants to be pregnant.
After a few weeks of having sex to get Jenna pregnant and the dinners beforehand they both start to develop more feelings for each other. Of course both of them are afraid of what the other will think because it wasn’t part of their deal. Plus neither of them want to let the other go so they just stick with what they have.
I loved Emmett and Jenna from page one. They were both likable and were both honest with each other and what they wanted. I liked how they both came up with any reason to want to be around each other without trying to give away their real feelings. This is another fabulous book and one you don’t want to miss out on.
