BLURB:

Is it an accidental pregnancy, if it’s purposefully planned?

Autumn Kulis wants a baby. It’s that simple and that complicated because one thing stands in her way – she doesn’t have a man in her life. And at almost forty, she isn’t getting any younger. On a two-week trip to her brother’s lakeside cottage, a plan forms. Make a list of three men. Sleep with each of them. Allow nature to take its course. Only, a certain someone gets in her way.

Logan Anders goes with the flow of life. Divorced, single dad, he works hard, and occasionally plays harder. When his college roommate invites him to Lakeside Cottage for two weeks, he hadn’t remembered his best friend’s little sister being so hot. Nor was he a fan of her plan to find a baby daddy. He’s determined to make her list then tear it to shreds leaving him the only man horizontal with her.

When we were forty, we had so much life to live, and a simple proposition could be the start of a second chance at really living.

Nancy’s Review

I felt like this was a little bit of a departure from Dunbar’s normal over 40 romance, but I liked it! This story was kind of slower burn in some ways, but very sensual. Autumn is full-figured, gorgeous, driven, and not getting any younger. She doesn’t have a boyfriend, but she wants a baby. A couple weeks at her brother’s lake house with his best friends from college seems fun. Well, it’s about to get HOT! Logan is a single dad and just oh so swoon-worthy. He definitely has his eye on Autumn now. I don’t want to spoil it, but this story had the perfect ending and I cried several times during this book. It’s a very emotional read. Don’t let that stop you from picking this one up, especially if you’re an L.B. Dunbar fan! There’s a lot more to this story than originally meets the eye. I’m looking forward to more in this series. 4 stars
