Everyone has a best friend. Mine just happens to be Dr. Christian Gallagher— the gorgeous, green-eyed heart surgeon who wants to have a baby with me.Yes, you read that correctly.
When my mother approached me on my thirty-third birthday with a brochure for egg freezing, it was a glaring reminder that my biological clock is ticking toward its expiration date. I’ve always dreamed of being a mom and had a plan — one that was destroyed when I caught my professional hockey player husband in bed with another woman.
Despite my broken heart I still believe in love. I want the happily ever after, but I also want a child desperately and won’t settle in order to make it happen.
That’s why when I decided to take my mother’s advice, Christian came up with his own plan: Let’s have a baby together.
It’s a bad idea. A really, really bad idea. And yet…I can’t stop thinking about how great it could be.
There’s just one condition. Before we have sex (oh, yes, we’re doing this the old fashioned way!) Christian is adamant we go on three dates.
Sounds easy, but it’s not.I thought sex would be the hard part, but the dates are only making me fall for the man I’ve known almost my entire life.
Whoever said sex doesn’t change things never went to bed with their best friend.
A Really Bad Idea by Jeannine Colette
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A Really Bad Idea is a standalone romance. What is it about romances with baby’s that grab me? I don’t know but I grabbed up this book because she needs a baby because her biological clock is ticking. Christian Gallagher and Meadow Duvane have known each other since they were kids. They are friends and he wants a baby with her the old-fashioned way after going with her to a fertility specialist.
Not only is Christian a heart surgeon. Which is a kind of human plumber he can actually do plumbing in the kitchen too.
I fell in love with Christian and Meadow as well as their family. Daddy Gallagher (Thomas) is Christian’s father and is also a heart doctor and is Meadow’s mother (Mama Duvane’s) doctor. And, the love that Daddy Duvane and Mama Duvane have for each other. Mama Duvane mettles in Meadow’s life. Just like a lot of mama’s do. She only means the best for her children.
I found A Really Bad Idea a really good and emotional read. I found myself not being able to put this book down. I LOVED reading this true romance book. 5 stars all the way!
