Book Blurb: The sweetest surprise…

Ambitious environmental attorney China Edwards pursues every goal with drive and dedication. Having a baby is no different. No husband? No problem—she'll find the perfect donor. Then one spontaneous passionate night with bachelor executive Alexander Kingsley leaves these two longtime friends with an unanticipated benefit, and throws China's future plans into turmoil.

China's brilliant legal mind and friendship are indispensable to Alexander and his multibillion-dollar oil firm. And the possibility of her moving on makes him realize how deep his feelings actually run. Then their all-business relationship takes a wildly erotic detour…until Alexander is drawn into a company scandal that rocks his life. With trust in tatters, can an unplanned bundle of joy lead them to become the family they never expected?

Review: First, I have to make a comment on the cover image. The woman looks like JLo. So the whole time I'm reading this, I have an image of China looking like JLo. Yeah..I'm that kind of weird.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The style was very much like a Harlequin Desire, with your super wealthy, kinda alpha male. Alexander was super sexy, and its a given that China is hot. This is a friends to lovers trope and what a fabulous book it was.

Martha Kennerson, created a wide range of characters that you really get attached too, even if they are only secondary characters, and the story plays out like a fabulous soap opera that you can't turn off.

China is a great strong heroine that really knows what she wants. (A baby...with or without a husband) The only thing that this woman who was raised by older parents didn't like was how she was ashamed that her mom had her late in life and she looked more like a grandmother than a mother.

Along with the relationship that is changing, there is the mystery of who is sabotaging Alexander's company. The family business is in oil and someone is trying to bring the EPA down on them. That part of the story is enough to make you turn the pages, because it isn't easy to figure out who the baddie is here.

The relationship between Alexander and China is fabulous and hot. I don't think I've ever read a book where two characters belong together more. I also love that both characters were hardworking and career driven.

The baby reveal was brilliant too, though it was hard to believe that so many people seemed to know without saying except China.

Fabulous read! I definitely would read Martha Kennerson again.
