pdf ☆ The Best Laid Plans ¾ Sarah Mayberry

Ment? Okay so they're attracted to each other Really really attracted But crossing the line from coworker to co parent with Ethan could ruin Alex for all other men After all when you've had the best As a general rule I like anything written by Sarah Mayberry This was no exception Except while it is classified as a romance there was so little romance There was a happy ending of course but the growing lust love and tension almost completely missingThe heroine Alex single at 38 runs into her anti children ex who happens to be a father now To make things worse she finds out that if she wanted a family she better start now Her hot coworker and rauetball buddy Ethan happens to witness her emotional breakdown Soon after Alex decides that she has no time to waste and should consult a sperm bank to get her wish That is until Ethan interferes Ethan's previous marriage went sour when his dream of a family was shattered by his wife Now afraid to trust women but still wanting to be a parent he volunteers to be Alex's donor Anyway things happen and they realize that they need each other than they think they do The concept is novel and interesting And the characters are compelling and beautifully drawn out Their interactions were cute But the romance happened to start in the last 3 chapters of the book I know that it's realistic but who cares about realistic? And that was the problem Overall this was a beautiful book about wanting a family but it was still supposed to be a romance And the love between the characters took a long time to develop
