    Oh, yes! I really do love everything Lili Valente writes, but this book is easily my favorite Valente-book ever. We get what we used to have from this amazing author – lovely characters, funny moments and oh-so-sexy times. What else should you need? I swooned, I laughed so much. I really enjoyed every minute of this amazing story.

    “So, is that how I make you feel, Blondie? Relaxed?” “No, you don’t make me relaxed. You make me hungry. And wild. Maybe a little crazy.” If there is one thing I have come to expect from Lili Valente, it’s a book that mixes humor with heart and happy-endings. A book in which laugh-out-loud moments flirt with silliness, sweetness and sexiness but always have a hint of something deeper. And that’s exactly what she delivers in The Baby...

    The Baby Maker is Lili Valente's newest sexy standalone. It's no secret how much I love Lili and her books. She always gives me what I want! Sexy, funny, silly characters who steal my heart. What's a strong, independent woman who wants a baby to do? Ask her sexy, farmer neighbor for a few months of fun. What can go wrong? Emma wants a baby and Dylan is the perfect specimen. Only thing is he can't stand her. Or so she thinks. When she gets up the ...

    Emma and Dylan have this attraction, but also they have this BIG thing that puts them on opposite sides of the fence so to speak...the grape fence...LOL.These two have the funniest banter and it make me chuckle on more then one occasion. Emma asks Dylan for a pretty big ask and she kind of had to be brave and courageous. This was a cute story and I think that Dylan's family life had a lot to do with how he handled Emma's big ask.Anywho...this is ...

    Ohmygosh you guys. This book was an absolute delight! This is only the second book I've read by Ms. Valente, but if they all make me feel this giddy, she may have just gained a new superfan!I adored Emma and Dylan. I connected with this story immediately - possibly because I saw a bit of myself in Emma (note: uh, not the asking a virtual stranger to knock me up part) - but I think because it's just written in such an engaging, honest way that it ...

    Emma and Dylan may be my new favorite couple:)No one writes contemporary romance quite like Lili Valente and this book is a perfect example of that. Emma Haverford leaves behind the fast past life of Silicone Valley for a more laid back and relaxed lifestyle in wine country. She knew running her own vineyard would be hard work but that's what she needs to take her mind off of her failed engagement. What she didn't count on was her hotter than sin...

      I probably should have enjoyed this one more than I did. I realized while I was reading it that I just do not like this type of setup. The heroine came across way too desperate and the hero was fine impregnating the heroine for a piece of land as long as she moved away so he wouldn't have to see the kid. Out of sight out of mind and all that. It just rubbed me the wrong way. Add in it was also an older woman/younger man trope and ya...Maybe ...

    3.5 starsIf not for my trusted friend Book-Bosomed blog's review, I would have probably never read this book. I’m glad I did it!Light, funny, sexy. Very likeable and sweet hero, not a manwhore! Nice heroine, not a doormat! But her cougar jokes… *facepalm*. She was only 4 years older than him. And? Why was it wrong? I hate the term ‘cougar’ *ugh* Did I miss their talk about STD status???Sweet epilogue.I will probably read the next book. Th...

    Sexy, sweet, and an absolute pleasure to read!This was my first read by Lili Valenti. I read her co-authored book with Lauren Blakely and really wanted to read more afterward. I love finding new to me authors who deliver a particular trope that I love and that's exactly what I got from The Baby Maker. I adore all things baby! While the trope is commons, I felt the story was unique and quite entertaining.Here are the basics: A city slicker/former ...

    The Baby Maker is a standalone novel by one of my all-time favorite authors, Lili Valente. I have read every single word she has written. I know once I open one of her books I will not want to put it down. That was definitely the case with Baby Maker. I wanted the next swoon moment. Their next laugh. Their next turn-on. I wanted it all. A few months ago Emma moved to small town Merceyville from the craziness of Silicon Valley. Instead of being in...

    I knew I wanted to read this book as soon as I saw the "Warning." It had me cracking up! I think that really helped to set the tone of this book. I was constantly laughing, so much so that I was halfway through the book before I started wondering how this story was going to play out. The whole idea of Emma asking Dylan to help her make a baby was super crazy, but then the amount of chemistry these two had was electric! The chemistry was just so i...

    This book was super hot, very fun, and hit all the right notes to have me invested. Dylan was this honest, hard working guy who is dedicated to his family and manages to blend sweet with steamy perfectly when it came to Emma. He was pretty impossible not to fall for.Emma was a woman who after going through a heartbreak reviews her priorities and decides what she truly needs to be happy is a baby, but not necessarily the man to go along with it. S...

    Lili Valente has me swooning with just thinking about these Hunter men in The Baby Maker. This story is filled with silly moments, sexy banter and very heated chemistry. Dylan Hunter and Emma Haverford worked their way into my heart. Dylan Hunter comes off a little grouchy from the start, but it's understandable. He helped save his family 's land, takes care of his family and has responsibilities and dreams that can weigh down any capable man. H...

    A sexy hug…Ahh… Emma and Dylan. I knew this author was going to deliver another sexy, warm-hearted romance – past experience told me s – so I’m not surprised that I was completely enthralled with their ‘business partners to lovers to sweethearts’ tale. “Critical mass is when shit gets real. For me it started at around seven a.m.” Dylan was sweet. Honest to goodness, devoted to family, always the good guy even when all he wanted...

    The Baby Maker is Lili Valente’s newest romance. It will leave you smiling and sighing with contentment upon turning of the final page. Her ability to create vivid and entertaining stories through her masterful writing are always a pleasure to read, and her characters always charm and captivate me. Emma is a strong and confident woman who knows what she wants. She wants a baby before her biological clock stops ticking. The only problem is she d...

    Dylan Hunter is a man possessed. He’s been running his family’s farm for years and he’s ready to move on, do his own thing and just… chill for once. There’s just one small, annoyingly tempting problem.The plot of land next door to his farm is up for sale. He was going to buy it for his dad to appease him from losing his vineyards to disease and hops and chickens. Long story short. Grapes were bad and Dylan ripped them out and replaced t...

    I’m so glad that Lili wrote a book set in the wine country! Dylan and Emma’s story delivered sizzle, laughs, tears and swoon. I loved their story and enjoyed every moment of it. I love reading stories set in places that I know like the back of my hand. These characters made me really think about the choices we make in our lives and why. How one person can change your life in an instant and make it all totally worth it. Highly recommend this l...

    I have to admit I read the blurb and thought this sounded like my cup of tea but then I got to the warning and I was completely sold. Luckily I am already pregnant so I didn't have to worry too much about the warning.I was semi expecting this to be a lot more smut with a little story thrown in and to be honest that would have still been a win for me. However I was thrilled to get a really sweet romance novel with a story that kept me turning the ...

    4.5 Star Review of The Baby Maker By Lili Valente  This book was a great read. I thoroughly enjoy Lili Valente’s writing style and The Baby Maker had great main and secondary characters. This is the story of neighbours Dylan Hunter and Emma Haverford.Emma is desperate to have a baby and decided after a nasty break up that she will take a rather unconventional route to make her dreams come true. After over hearing two women talking about her hu...

    3 stars3 starsI loved the idea of this book, but for me, somewhere it didn't hold my interest. I thought it was cute, the idea to have a baby. But the lead, Emma wasn't really likable to me. She was way to aggressive, and didn't really win me over.

    Harika bir kitap değildi ama kötü bir kitap da değildi. Okurken insan zevk alıyor ama kapatınca hiçbir şey hatırlamıyor. Vakit geçirmek için ideal. Biraz daha ayrıntılı yorumum gelecek.Not a great book but definitely not a bad book. It is nice to read but when it's finished there is nothing to remember either. Good for time passing. Detailed review to come.

    YOU WILL WANT TO BUY THIS BOOK. Oh wow where to begin with this one. Lili did an outstanding job with The Baby Maker and giving not only the humor that makes a books so good as well as the burn you up hot sex that makes us all happy but there is so much more to this. The Hunter men are famous for their ability to produce babies. It is even rumored you could get pregnant by just talking to a Hunter man LOL so when Emma Haverford decides she is rea...

    Lili Valente has become one of my favorite go-to authors! I haven't read a bad book from her yet, and since I think she's on a roll, I don't think I will anytime soon! First off, can I say how cute Emma and Caleb were both together, and by themselves? Caleb comes off as this broody, grouchy guy, but really, he's actually a huge gooey soft spot. At first, he hates Emma since she's trying to encroach on the land he's had his eye on. Dylan and the r...

    The Baby Maker by Lili Valente I had to have this book from the moment I read the blurb: the idea of a family of baby makers had me intrigued and amused and overall, it was well-delivered. Emma is getting older (NOT old, just older) and due to medical issues, has decided to take matters into her own hands and have a baby by herself. Instead of going the speed donor route, she propositions her sexy yet grumpy neighbor Dylan, promising him the land...
