Some phenomenal books I've read recently
Okay at first I thought this book was going to be far-fetched. A beautiful girl (Emma) who doesn't have a boyfriend, but does have a ticking biological clock wants a baby desperately. She's just finished planning a baby shower for a co-worker, and is worn out and exhausted from planning something that she wants so desperately. She gets into a fight with her best friend who just happens to be a guy, when they argue in the elevator along comes a woman-eating man whore co-worker, Aidan. He's tried to seduce and pick up Emma before, but she's been warned about him. Aidan decides to take it upon himself to intervene in the argument (he thinks it's a lover's quarrel), when Emma runs off. However, he finds out that the guy Emma is fighting with is her gay friend who's boyfriend has rejected the idea of using his sperm to impregnate her. So Aidan comes up with plan that will get him at a least a few nights with Emma. He'll agree to be the sperm donor but they have to have sex not do it in a clinic with a turkey baster. Things change fast when both Emma and Aidan start falling for each other. It complicates things because the idea was he'd just impregnate her and move on. But feelings get in the way and his desire to perhaps have a child grows on him. Especially as his family adores Emma. But Aidan being the man whore, screws things up so terrifically that he just might lose Emma and the baby forever. Loved this one, Aidan is a dick, but you just root for him anyway.
to win and get the guy. But in this case, it's the guy that just can't seem to commit even though he's obsessively in love. Andy Foster is a writer for a music magazine and has been invited by her friend, who happens to do PR for an up and coming band. Andy is not your typical gorgeous modelesque beauty. She's curvy, she's got an ass, hips and boobs (I always pictured Jane on Drop Dead Diva). But Vanni, the lead singer, is smitten. Andy is asked to write about the band during a tour and she is surprised by how into Vanni she is. Once she leaves the band, she and Vanni start texting and talking. But nothing is committed in stone. But then Vanni is shown with movie stars and models, and the next thing he's living with one. Andy is crushed, but she continues on. She meets a very eager music producer who whisks her off her feet, but is also eager to steal Vanni and his band from their current label. I absolutely loved this book and I am patiently waiting for the third book. Because there is a third one. I know that Amazon has a bundle special with GROUPIE/ROCKSTAR for $5.99. Not sure if that goes for B&N. If you like your hard-edged rock star story, you'll adore this one.
So there you have it! I highly recommend all these books and hope that you're able to purchase these wonderful books for yourself or as gifts for people.
