Baby Maker by P. Dangelico
Publication Date: February 20th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Stella Donovan’s biological clock is a ticking time bomb.
The successful financial manager has spent her adult life building a career and neglecting her personal life. Problem is, she doesn’t believe in marriage. Not after watching her mother be treated like garbage by her father. Nope, marriage is not for her. All she wants is a baby. All she needs is a man to agree to her terms.
Dane Wylder, recently retired NFL tight end and future Hall of Famer, wants a baby.
Naturally, marriage is off the table. He’s not the marrying type. Women are great––as long as they’re trying to get into his bed and not his heart. But after years of living only for himself, he’s ready to be a father.
Sparks fly when a successful financial manager and a legendary football player enter into a legal agreement to have a kid together. They planned on everything––they just didn’t plan on each other.

Grabbing the pot of freshly brewed coffee from the coffee maker, he stares into the pot then drinks from it. I don’t bother to tell him it’s decaf. Throat working as he swallows, he holds up his index finger.
I’ve got a finger for him, the middle one.
“I don’t know what’s gotten into you but I’ve had enough.” He continues drinking. “And word of caution, if you come back to New York and continue to treat me like I’m cattle, a possession, you will damage this friendship beyond repair.”
He places the pot down, his eyes downcast as he leans on the counter for support. “I’m sorry…I was a real asshole last night and––”
“Last night?!” I shout. “How about for the past week.”
“Well you’re not helpin’ the situation!” he shouts back, his eyes sparking, then winces again.
My jaw hangs in disbelief. He can’t be serious. Is he really blaming me?
“The hell are you talking about? You’re blaming me? Me?! You’ve been unbearable––when you’ve been around, that is. Usually you’re running in the opposite direction. But somehow in your twisted little male peanut sized brain, it’s my fault?!”
“Yes, goddamit! Dancin’––smilin’ at that fucking cowboy!” His hand slashes through the air as if he’s indicating to someone in the corner. The veins near his temple pop up. Eyes impossibly wide, he advances on me, stopping a mere foot away. “You never smile at me like that!”
Huh? “What does that have to do with anything?!”
“Because I’m jealous! Okay! And you’ve made it very clear you’re not attracted to me but all I can think about is this!”
He’s on me before I can blink, arms crushing me to him, kissing me like I hold the last breath of air on the planet and he means to steal it.
A beat later he stops. His lips against mine he murmurs, “Kiss me back…please kiss me back.”
Meet P. Dangelico:
Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.

Stella Donovan has caught a serious case of baby fever and she really wants to have one of her own, but as we all know you need a man for part of the deal, and she is not in the market for a man. So, she does what any woman in her case would do and hits up her guy friends, who all tell her their not the right fit for her plan, but then a her friend does her a solid and sets her up a meeting with one of his friends. Problem is her first impression of the self proclaimed ladies man isn't so good, he's obnoxious, slightly vulgar, and the moment he opens his mouth he expects her to be at his mercy like every woman to come before her, and well, she just isn't seeing what all of the fuss is about. She'd prefer someone who didn't look at life with such a lackadaisical approach, she is more of a planner herself, she wants someone who takes things a little more seriously. So she tells him no thanks... but he isn't quite ready to let walk away, they both want the same thing, and he is determined to make her dream of being a mother a reality.
Dane Wylder has just closed the chapter on his football career, and now he is ready to move onto something else, something that involves a lot more effort, and a little less carefree lifestyle; he wants to be a father. The problem with that is he doesn't have the other part of the baby making component, a woman willing to carry his child, one that won't require a ring on her finger first preferably. Dane doesn't do love, he watched it take it's toll on his parents marriage, and it's just not something he is comfortable signing himself up for. So, when his buddy tells him he has a friend in the same boat that he is, he is willing to meet her, and see if she might be the perfect component for his plan... but after one meeting things don't go quite so well. She tells him no and walks away, but Dane is certain she is the right fit so he ups the anti and decides to convince her to change her mind... and winds up getting far more than he bargained for!!
Baby Maker is a highly entertaining tale of an opposites attract couple who decide to become parents the unconventional way, and wind up finding a whole lot more in the process. Neither planned on finding love, but fate had other plans for their little journey together, and I have to say it was so much fun to watch it all play out! This was a first time read for me, and I have to say this author definitely made a good first impression with her well crafted tale, it made me smile, made me swoon, and was good for the heart... and all around hit in my book! I highly recommend you give this one a try, it will surprise you, move you, make you blush, and leave you with a smile!!
