Avery Yeung’s biological clock just went off early. Thanks to her family’s medical history, she’s running out of time to get knocked up. And the only guy within donating distance? Her overprotective—and irritatingly hot—best friend. So clearly she needs an anonymous donor…
Anonymous donor? Over Sheriff Drew Flannery’s dead body. While daddyhood will never be in the cards for a man with his past, Drew won’t let Avery shop for a “popsicle pop.” He’ll do what’s right for his best friend by doing his best friend. But only if they do it properly.
But there’s nothing “proper” about it. Between the bed, the kitchen counter, and against his squad car, Avery and Drew are having the hottest sex ever. They can’t get enough of it—or each other. And without knowing it, they’ve crossed the one line that could ruin their friendship forever…
✯✯4 Fast Paced Stars!!✯✯
This was my first book by Katee Robert. It's definitely not going to be my last. This is the second book in the series. Even though I did not read book 1 and the main characters were in this book a lot. I did not feel lost. It was very easy to feel for both Avery & Drew.
Avery Yeuny and Drew Flannery have been best friends their whole lives. They been through everything together. Some good and some bad. Nobody understands them like the other one does. They know what they're thinking and going to say what they've actually said it.With saying that, it doesn't mean they like what the other one is saying or doing.
Avery is on a dead line for motherhood. Avery has the same Cancer gene that killed her mom and that caused her sister Alexis to not be able to have children. Avery wants to be a mother more then anything in this world. Even though she's afraid her becoming a mother will hurt her sister. Avery must do this for herself before it's too late.
Drew does not take the news good at all. He acts like a complete tool! That's saying it nicely. Drew was with his best friend after her mother died and her sister went through everything. He was there with Avery when she got her results that devastated her. He knew she'd been thinking about going to do IVF. But, hearing her say it. Makes him snap.
Drew can not let Avery have another man's baby.Drew talks Avery into letting him be the donor. Though they both were thinking 2 different things. Avery was expecting to go to the clinic and go from there. Drew on the other hand. He's expecting them to make a baby the old fashioned way.
Once they start they can't stop. The living room,kitchen the side of the road. These 2 are hot together. The whole time these 2 are thinking such different things and the same things they seriously gave me a head ache. They have had feelings for each other for so long. But, they never wanted to cross that line and loose the other one. So, they stay apart. Now, that they've crossed that line. Their feelings and emotions are all over the place. Both would give anything to be with the other one. But, they are scared. One thinks once they have a baby it'll be happily ever after. The other thinks once they get pregnant they can go back to being best friends.
For best friends these 2 didn't know the first thing about the other one. I don't get how they never saw how the other one looked at them. Or knew why the other one couldn't/wouldn't keep a bf/gf. I never understood why they never told them how they really felt. ESP since their in their 20s they should've been able to talk to one another. I did love how they knew so much about each other. Whenever one of them had a freak out. The other one knew how to walk the other one off the ledge. Whenever they'd start goofing off I'd laugh along with them.
But, what happens when emotions get outta control. What happens when you say things that you can't take back. Is it better to have said them? Will they loose their best friend/love of their lives?
Avery was so strong. She was always putting everyone before her own needs/wants. ESP her sister. There were times between Avery & Alexis that I couldn't help but cry. I felt for them both. I know how they feel of maybe not having children for whatever the reason. It's heartbreaking. My heart went out to the sisters. Her grandfather is a major major jerk. Drew is a strong man. Sheriff. Well respected in his town. And, he's haunted from the past. He keeps letting his past make him into the man he can and should be. I really loved how he was protector of his brother for so long and now the whole town. He really has a big heart. It was just so sad that he didn't see it. That he didn't think he deserved the wife,family and the house with the white picket fence. You will def love this couple.
He jumped, and then climbed to his feet when Avery did, and followed her to the plump older nurse. She smiled at them, making him wonder if she were someone’s grandmother—the kind who made cookies and read bedtime stories and…
What the hell was he even thinking?
As soon as they turned the corner from the waiting room, she handed him a small clear cup that had a sticker with his information on it. “You’ll put the specimen in here, please.”
The nurse opened a door. “You can leave the cup in the room when you’re done.” She smiled at Avery. “You’re welcome to go into the room with him, but we ask that you ensure there’s no saliva or other fluids involved so you don’t contaminate the specimen.”
Avery made a choked noise. “That’s so not going to be a problem.”
The nurse laughed and patted her shoulder. “I’ve heard that one before, honey. I’ll just leave you to it.”
He barely waited for her to disappear back around the corner before he turned to examine the room. It looked like an entire frat house’s stash of porn had exploded in there. “Isn’t this a little much for a few tests?”
She looked at him like he was an idiot. “How else are you going to get your engine running?
Besides, this isn’t about tests—though I’m sure they’ll run a few. You wanted to help me make a baby, so let’s make a baby. Now go get ‘em, Champ.”
Jesus Christ. She expected him to leave a specimen so the doctor could shoot it up her…
Apparently when they’d talked about making a baby, something had gotten lost in translation.
“You’re shitting me.”
“Nope.” She slid past him into the room and meandered around, stopping in front of the television and eyeing the collection of DVDs on the shelf next to it. “Oh, look, they have Busty Blondes #37. I seem to remember you having one of these videos back in high school.”
He grabbed her shoulders and tried to steer her away from the shelf. “Not interested.”
Truth was, his inspiration for self sessions had migrated toward pretty Asian women who looked a whole lot like the one standing in the room with him.
“If you’re not into the DVDs, they have magazines, too.” She poked one with her finger. “Though this one appears a bit crusty.”
“Christ, stop touching things. Do you know what men do in here?”
She rolled her eyes. “Yeah, Drew, that’s kind of the point. They come in here, watch or read whatever tickles their fancy, and then masturbate into that sanitary little cup right there.”
When she said ‘masturbate’ he thought his head might actually explode. “Avery—”
“Are you worried about hitting your mark? That is kind of a small cup. Want me to go find something bigger?”
God, she was killing him. It would have been so much more bearable if he thought she was kidding, but Avery was drop dead serious. It was a sign of her nervousness that she hadn’t cracked a joke since he got into her Jeep.
He couldn’t do it.
About The Author:
New York Times & USA TODAY Bestselling Author
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
