BabyMaker_Ebook_Amazon

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.

 

My Review

4 Stars!!

P. Dangelico is back with a doozy of a romance!

So, we have two characters who don’t believe in love, Dane and Stella, but both want a baby. When they are hooked up by a mutual friend, they decide to create a legal agreement to co-parent a child, no feelings involved.

We all know how that turns out…

So, it isn’t as simple as they meet, say “hey, I want a kid, but love blows. Let’s have a baby together and co-parent.” No, definitely not that easy. In the beginning of this book, I kept thinking to myself time and time again that I have never read two more stiff characters. No, seriously. Stella is uptight, boring and a workaholic. All, I could think in the beginning was this chick should not be a mother, the poor child would just be another item she bought because it was the thing to do. She was all work, work, work, sex is blah and unnecessary (say what?!) and gee, I have an expensive Italian couch and Armani suits. Yawn… Dane was just as obnoxious on the other end of the spectrum. He was brash, obnoxious, and kind of rude. However, Dane had a softer side underneath his brash exterior that made him a guy you wanted to sympathize with. This two were something else to the point that I felt sorry for their future kid.

Then, about 25-30% of the way through, things do a big, fat 180 and FINALLY Stella becomes a human. There is a LOT of back and forth banter between Stella and Dane and some of will make you want to slap some people upside the head. Communication is NOT their strong point.

Once the turnaround happens, the books sped by and I found myself turning page after page with no intention of stopping until the end.

One of the things I love about P. Dangelico is her writing. It is easy, fun and she adds just the right amount of snark without being too overbearing or taking away from the romance of things. I do wish she would have included the birth of the baby, but I get it, that wasn’t really what the book was about. It’s just that I love that moment when the big, strong dude goes all soft over the baby. lol!

Honestly, I would read anything Dangelico writes. She has a knack for putting the right amount of everything needed into a book and turning out something you can’t put down! Baby Maker is pretty, darn great!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00014]

Excerpt:

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.

Wrecking Ball Cover

About Wrecking Ball:

Cam DeSantis’ life is a hot, steaming pile. How else would you describe losing your husband, your job, and your money all at once? Desperate times call for desperate measures, so when salvation comes in the form of one intolerable a-hole, who just happens to be the starting quarterback for the vaunted NY Titans, she has no choice but to accept his offer as a live-in nanny slash teacher for his eight year old nephew. Now all she has to do is find a safe place in her mind to hide whenever she feels the need to throat punch him into tomorrow…which is often.

 

Calvin Shaw has zero interest in women. Wait, wait––let me rephrase that. He loves women, he just doesn’t want anything to do with ‘um. Not since his wife, presently ex-wife, got knocked up by the guy she was cheating on him with. Problem is––there’s one living in his house. And he doesn’t know what’s worse, that he promised to be civil, or that he’s attracted to her.

My Review:

5 Stars!
Top Read of 2017!

P. Dangelico has totally stayed me with this awesome read!

Camilla Ava Maria DeSantis, or Cam as she is known by her friends, has been through a lot. The man she loved, her husband, is dead. Before his death, he was investigated and accused by the federal government of bilking people out of millions in a Ponzi scheme. Three years after his death, the case is finally closed and Cam’s life is just burning embers of what it once was. She can’t go anywhere, lost her job, can’t get a new one and she’s living at home with her parents. She gets offered a job through a temp agency and with no other options, she takes it. She is the new teacher/caretaker for the nephew of New York Titan’s QB, Cal Shaw.

Holy sparks! Whenever Cam and Cal are in the same vicinity, the pages of the book are smoking. There is soooo much sexual tension between them. This is a slow burn of epic proportions. I’m not kidding you. There are no sexy times until approximately 85% of the book. But, do NOT let that deter you, my friends. This the kind of tension that is oh so good!

The story is good, really good. Sure, it has been done before, but Dangelico has just done it better. She has written fantastic characters who you can’t help but love and I found myself feeling their emotions as I read along. The addition of a cute, eight year old boy, a sassy best friend, parents and a few meddling friends, make this a perfect read!

Exclusive Excerpt:

He’s removed his ball cap and his black hair is back up in that ridiculous bun again. I can feel a frown developing on my face as I stare at it. Everything about this guy is a total turn off.

“What do you want?” I do nothing to hide my exasperation. “It’s two a.m. I’ve been running around all night, and I’m tired.”

“I apologized three times,” he says, through a clenched jaw. Yeah, real genuine. Somebody needs to tell this guy he’s not the injured party in this scenario.

“Because you want me to work for you, because you’ve already run off every other qualified applicant in the Tristate area, and now I’m your last hope. Well tough noogies, Mr. Shaw, this time you don’t win. I win and you lose.” And I realize I’m beginning to shout. His eyebrows, two black slashes making his eyes look even paler, rise up. Then the most unexpected thing happens. Those cold, unforgiving eyes turn into crescents and a burst of laughter explodes out of him.

“Tough noogies?” His laughter is deep and rich and it bothers the hell out of me, one more insult to my already bruised ego that I refuse to tolerate. My patience has officially run out.

Through clenched teeth, I grind out, “I don’t mean to be critical––but you’re an insufferable a-hole!” and walk away. I take three steps and feel a huge, warm hand grip my upper arm. In reflex, I wheel around and whisper-hiss, “Don’t you dare touch me.” He instantly releases his grip and holds up his hands up in surrender. Then he stuffs them in the front pocket of his jeans, and shrugs up his massive shoulders in a posture I’ve seen him assume when he’s uncomfortable.

Despite that it’s past midnight and colder than a witch’s tit, the streets of the city are teeming with people. As they walk past us, they curiously turn to watch without breaking stride. It takes a lot more that a mountain of a man, famous or not, and a woman with smoke coming out her ears to get their full attention. One lingers longer than necessary.

“Nothing to see here,” I growl. My glare convinces the onlooker to skedaddle.

“I’m sorry,” he says. His voice is soft, his tone earnest. My attention immediately returns to him. I almost can’t believe my ears. “I’m really, really sorry––I was havin’ a bad day,” he continues, rubbing the back of his neck. A light southern twang hangs on the last few words. “I’m in a real bind…my nephew…” His voice trails off and his eyes are suddenly warm and searching, and for the first time since we’ve met, I may not hate his guts.
