She wants a baby. He needs an heir. It seems like the perfect arrangement…until they decide to conceive the old-fashioned way.Having a baby with his best friend is the means to an end for Nick Caroselli. In his quest to receive a ten-million-dollar inheritance, he’ll also be giving Theresa Phillips the one thing she really wants…a child. Once the baby’s born and the money’s in the bank, they can divorce, share custody and go back to being buddies. But their best-laid plans are about to take a sharp turn under the mistletoe, as things really heat up this Christmas.
I love a good friends became lovers, but sometimes the ending is not really what I expected and this book fell in this category. I liked parts of the story and the plot for the series was really good, but I think the ending could be a bit better.
Nick is really fun and I enjoyed the fact he has a sweet tooth with working on his family business. But I could see that he’s really royal and it’s kinda nice to see a story centered on friends that really work well together and have always thought of being more but were afraid of the what if?
Theresa is a good girl and is afraid of a big commitment between them because she lost her family and is kinda worried about losing him too. But a baby was a nice improvement to these two. Since both wanted and Nick is actually good with kids but just doesn’t want a relationship because of some traumas with his parents.
The end was a bit disappointing, but didn’t throw me of the book completely, since I enjoyed the family and the grandpa story.
