Baby Daddy by Kendall Ryan Review



We met in a trapped elevator.

Emmett was on his way to work, sophisticated and handsome in his tailored suit and tie.

I was on my way to the sperm bank. Awkward, right?

At thirty-five, my life hadn’t taken the path I thought it would and I was tired of waiting—I wanted a baby. And I was ready to take matters into my own hands to make it happen.

After our ill-fated elevator encounter, Emmett insisted on taking me to dinner—he also insisted on something else—that I ditch my plan involving a turkey baster and let him do the job. He would be my baby daddy. He was a wealthy and powerful CEO with little interest in diapers or playdates. And since he didn’t want kids, I’d be on my own once his bun was in my oven, free to go my own way.

But once his baby was inside me, it was like a switch had been flipped, and I got a whole lot more than I ever bargained for.

This full-length standalone contains a hot, swoonworthy hero, lots of playful banter and some hot baby-making s-e-x! Enjoy.


I love written romantic comedies, and Kendall Ryan has certainly turned out some great ones. Her take here in Baby Daddy on the baby-making trope was an out-and-out pleasure to read. Ryan blended plenty of light and breezy humor with a surprising amount of emotion into a story that I absolutely devoured.

Super sweet, swoon-worthy—but totally clueless—Emmett and the strong, determined Jenna were paired perfectly as a couple I couldn’t help rooting for. A charming meet-cute in a broken-down elevator taking him to work and her to the sperm bank pulled me right in to this story. This couple’s off-the-charts chemistry and budding romance, something that they both hilariously attempted to deny, kept me up late and tapping my Kindle. In the midst of all their light-hearted baby-making fun, though, their connection became all too real as all their efforts—ahem—paid off, and it was the unexpected depth of emotion in those moments that surprised me and took this romcom to another whole level.

Kendall Ryan had me swooning on my sofa with this sweet and sexy romance! Baby Daddy was packed with heart-tugging feels, flirty banter and super steamy baby-making so hot that I actually blushed! Kendall Ryan’s Baby Daddy gets 4.5 smooches from me!
