Title: A Really Bad Idea
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 14, 2019

Everyone has a best friend. Mine just happens to be Dr. Christian Gallagher— the gorgeous, green-eyed heart surgeon who wants to have a baby with me.

Yes, you read that correctly.

When my mother approached me on my thirty-third birthday with a brochure for egg freezing, it was a glaring reminder that my biological clock is ticking toward its expiration date. I’ve always dreamed of being a mom and had a plan — one that was destroyed when I caught my professional hockey player husband in bed with another woman.

Despite my broken heart I still believe in love. I want the happily ever after, but I also want a child desperately and won't settle in order to make it happen.

That’s why when I decided to take my mother’s advice, Christian came up with his own plan: Let’s have a baby together.

It’s a bad idea. A really, really bad idea. And yet...I can’t stop thinking about how great it could be.

There’s just one condition. Before we have sex (oh, yes, we’re doing this the old fashioned way!) Christian is adamant we go on three dates.

Sounds easy, but it's not. I thought sex would be the hard part, but the dates are only making me fall for the man I’ve known almost my entire life.

Whoever said sex doesn't change things never went to bed with their best friend.

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

Meadow and Christian have been best friends for a very long time. They are always there for the other person and when Meadow decides she wants to become a mother, Christian offers to help her out. He can’t stand the idea of her finding a random sperm donor and conceiving a child with him is the only thing that makes sense. Trust me, there are plenty of reasons why it’s both a good and (really) bad idea that I won’t get into in this review.

When Christian makes the suggestion that before they start the baby making, he will take Meadow on three dates, he breaks out his best wooing skills and OMG IT WAS AMAZING. Let’s just say that Meadow got the full boyfriend experience with Christian and I found myself swooning more than once.
He was sweet, sexy, loving and extremely thoughtful. Talk about perfect book boyfriend material! 

I absolutely loved this book. Jeannine has given us a practically perfect story. I love this trope and this is about as good as it gets. Christian and Meadow already have a solid friendship and I’m a big believer that that helps make an even stronger romantic relationship. Sure, they hit some speedbumps along the way, but that just made the story more believable. If friends to lovers is your jam, then you definitely want to read this book.
