This Book Made Me Smile
It was never supposed to go down like this...I wasn't supposed to fall.
I think that the nice guys are underrated. Sure, I love a bad boy as much as the next girl, but, man, I'm happy as a clam to read a story where the hero is not a giant jerk. Author Lili Valente is one of my go-to romance authors, and her romantic comedies are some of my favorites, so when I not only get to read one of her books, and it's a romantic comedy with a guy that I just, well, like, I figure it's a pretty good day.
THE BABY MAKER is Lili's latest offering, and I was all in from the very first page. I just knew that Dylan Hunter was my kind of guy. Oh, he talks a good game, but the big things for him, the things that really matter, are family, home, honor, and hard work. He's just a good guy, and, while he may think that Emma Haverford isn't his cup of tea, well, he just doesn't know her well enough yet.
I adore Emma. She's funny, passionate, and smart, and, actually just the sort of woman that Dylan would like, if he took off his grumpy pants for a second. And, when they connect, when Emma lays out her big plan, as crazy as it sounds, Dylan is hooked. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Lili has worked her usual magic and written a story that is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy, one that I happily lost myself in, one that has characters that I could imagine wanting to spend time with, all things that make a book a success for me. THE BABY MAKER is an easy 5 stars for me, because in a world that doesn't always have happy endings, this story made me smile and believe that life can be happy and beautiful and full of love. Add this one to your TBRs, and enjoy.
Hot Farmer Neighbor + Curvy City Girl= Baby
Emma Haverford has had enough of the big city life and her last straw was when her fiance went up and had an affair with another woman and knocking her up. The one thing that Emma has been longing for, another woman got instead, a baby. So off she went to the wine country to start her own adventure in wine.
Dylan Hunter has sworn off women. His one goal is to get his family's farm out of hardship and pursue his dream of opening his own brewery. So when his curvy, sexy as sin neighbor sets off a bidding war for the land right next to Dylan, oh boy is he mad. However, Dylan can't deny that even when good old Emma drives him up a wall in anger, her beauty, smart mouth and sassiness sets his body parts on fire. So when Emma approaches Dylan with a proposition that they spend the next three months working on getting her pregnant, no strings attached for the land he wants, Dylan thinks real hard about it. A kiss shared between Emma and Dylan makes Dylan long for Emma, and she knows that she can convince him to help her out. What Emma and Dylan don't expect is falling hard for one another and the their once thought out plans are blurred. Will either one be brave enough to tell the other how they feel? Will Emma finally get what she has always wanted?
What a sizzling hot, tortuous, sweet, heart wrenching story Lili Valente wrote. Emma is strong, witty, smart, sweet, sexy and overall sassy woman. Dylan is a kind, loyal, sinfully hot, dirty talking cowboy who knows how to turn a woman's world upside down with just a look. Emma and Dylan's story started as a proposition but soon bloomed into something neither was expecting. They brought out the best in one another and their relationship was sexy but sweet at the same time. Well done Lili, well done. There is a reason I can't put your books down and I call you one of my favorite authors.
Definitely a page turner!
Oh my goodness, this is a page turner....a fast page turner. It’s been awhile since I’ve read a book that I absolutely can not put down. Emma and Dylan were enjoyingg each other hoping that Dylan can give her the one thing that has been unattainable. They are neighbours fighting for the same piece of property when it happened. Love! This was such a fast sweet read. Waiting for the next book!!
Make Me A Baby
By Terri Dickey
5 Star plus. Absolutely loved this book. So much emotion and lots of humor. Oh and let’s not forget all the Hot sex. Lots and lots of hot baby making sex that grows to love. Dylan’s father is well known for his fertility so when Emma wants a baby with no father attached so decides to seek out one of the Hunter offsprings to make it happen. I voluntarily read this ARC to give an honest opinion. I loved it so much. Highly recommend it.
Review: The Baby Maker
The Baby Maker by Lili Valente is a new stand alone romance told in dual POV between the infamous Baby Maker himself, Dylan Hunter, and the woman that bargain's for his baby making stuff, Emma Haverford. Another wonderful, funny, romantic, endearing story from one of my absolute MUST-READ authors.
Emma's clock is ticking. She split from her cheating fiance, quit her successful Silicon Valley job and bought a winery and is now learning to appreciate the slower side of life in the country. Except, the only thing she can't approach slowly is her ticking biological clock.
Dylan is angry with his pumpkin patch owning neighbor that he is even entertaining the idea of selling his land to the new girl in town, the aggravating Emma Haverford. He wants that land to start growing vines again for his family's farm and to keep his dad off his back. Nevermind she offered 10K ovr asking, this guy calls Dylan the "grandson he never had". The nerve of the new girl to try and steal the land to expand her winery! Nevermind that she is beautiful and sassy and his neighbor...
When Emma propositions Dylan about giving the baby making a try for three months and she'll back of the sale he is conflicted. The story only gets exponentially better from there. The family dynamic of the Hunters and between Emma and her sister. The romance that blossoms between Emma and Dylan. It is sexy and hot and sweet and the characters are wonderfully developed. I am so excited to see what happens in the next standalone story, The Troublemaker! Enjoy!
Love, love, Dylan and Emma!

The Baby Maker is Lili Valente's newest sexy standalone. It's no secret how much I love Lili and her books. She always gives me what I want! Sexy, funny, silly characters who steal my heart. What's a strong, independent woman who wants a baby to do? Ask her sexy, farmer neighbor for a few months of fun. What can go wrong? Emma wants a baby and Dylan is the perfect specimen. Only thing is he can't stand her. Or so she thinks. When she gets up the courage to ask him, he doesn't instantly say yes. Dylan thinks Emma is hot as hell. But can he walk away from his own child? She's offering him the one thing he needs. Land to grow his business. But after one taste of Emma he can't walk away. And after the next time, it's even harder to walk away. How much harder will it be after a few months? I loved Dylan! I loved that he's a real man who doesn't have a hard time admitting how he feels. Telling Emma what he wants. Asking for more. It was a nice change of pace to watch the man chase the woman! Emma has her reasons and I love her for them. She's strong, smart and determined. But she's no match for sexy as sin Dylan and his sexy hair and dirty mouth. Together they have sizzling chemistry and hilarious banter!
"I'm so sorry. It's the oysters. They overpowered me. I couldn’t help myself."
"The oysters, huh? My irresistible sex vibe had nothing to do with it?"
I've been following Dylan's movements like a chocoholic tracking the last dark chocolate truffle at the party.
