Booklist Review

Fans of old-fashioned, sweet romances will be glad to see Macomber's 1992 gem reissued in hardcover. Plain Jamie Warren and handsome Rich Manning have been friends since working together on their high-school newspaper more than a dozen years earlier. Neither one of them has been lucky in love, and now, in her thirties, with her biological clock ticking down, Jamie decides she wants to have a child. When adoption doesn't pan out, she decides on artificial insemination and asks her very good-looking, genetically blessed friend to be the donor. Rich likes the idea, but he wants to be more than a donor, and he doesn't want his friendship with Jamie to end, so he proposes a marriage of convenience. They will marry to give the child his last name, and he will be involved in supporting and raising the child. But, of course, things go awry, and misunderstandings owing to missed phone calls in the days before ubiquitous cell phones and voice mail contribute to the confusion, conflict, and romantic fun.--Herald, Diana Tixier Copyright 2010 Booklist

Disillusioned by romance but wanting a family, a young woman asks her best friend since high school to be her sperm donor in this sweet, heart-tugging -romance that was first released as a Silhouette Special Edition in 1992. A perfect friends-to-lovers winner from the incomparable Macomber. © Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
