Book Review, Giveaway: THE BABY PROJECT by Miranda Liasson


by Miranda Liasson


When a workaholic OB doctor asks her commitmentphobic, globetrotting ex-fling to donate a sperm sample, a simple request turns into far more than either of them ever bargained for…Here comes THE BABY PROJECT by Miranda Liasson…


Liz Kingston spends her life delivering babies and longs for one of her own. All she needs is someone with fabulous genetic material. Who better to ask than her sexy ex-fling, who has no interest in ever settling down or being a father.
International correspondent Grant Wilbanks loves danger and traveling the world. But nothing in all this Brit’s experience could have prepared him for the way a torrid affair with Liz makes him feel. When she asks for his assistance, he figures he can help her out with a simple donation. No strings, no emotions, just…test-tube science.
But this simple favor gives them both more than they ever bargained for. Grant agrees to her terms, but stepping away gets harder and harder because the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling…and losing the battle to safeguard his heart.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

I’m thirty-two years old, divorced, and I have endometriosis. And I haven’t had a date since my grandmother tried to fix me up with that guy whose first name was the same as my mom’s maiden name. She kept trying to say we weren’t related, but I knew better.

… her husband, the man she’d dated since high school, cheated on her with Daphne Marie Henderson, who owned the pet grooming business in town. At the time, they hadn’t even been married a year. She thought Parker was dropping off his mother’s dog for a shampoo and cut, but he was clearly getting some other services performed as well.

He was as domesticated as a Bengali tiger.

“You know you’re always beautiful to me,” Nick said, rubbing Maddie’s belly and giving her a kiss. “I just never thought I’d see the day when my wife would eat more than a pro football player.” … “I love you,” Maddie said, “but when you talk like that you do know you’re asking for death, right?”

My Review:

The Baby Project was a quick, entertaining, and satisfying read.  Grant was charming with a posh British accent, although he was also a daredevil, adrenaline junkie, and a front-line journalist who lived out of a suitcase and was driven with the goal of obtaining a Pulitzer.  Liz was a prickly, workaholic OB in a small town practice, living in an empty house with an empty refrigerator and a one-eyed dog, yet yearning for a baby.  Doesn’t sound like much of a match but they had shared volcanically hot chemistry with “Armageddon kisses,” when they had met a year prior and enjoyed a torrid affair that was hot enough to scare Grant stupid, and he had been, really, really stupid.  I enjoyed the humor, banter, steam, and gradual peeling of the onion to see how the relationship softened and revitalized the characters.  I could happily read engaging Miranda Liasson stories like this every single day.
