Dear Baby Daddy - Alexis Adaire
Reading Challenge Category: Free from Kindle Unlimited
After years of playing the field, I'm finally ready to settle down. Rather than waste time with the endless aggravation and frustration of dating, I decide to go through the What The Heart Wants matchmaking service. When the matchmaker pairs me with Scarlett, I'm more than intrigued. She's smart as hell and incredibly sexy, but too many cheating boyfriends have left her with a singular focus: getting pregnant and raising a child on her own. I may want a wife and family, but being an absentee baby daddy is a whole different story. Too bad Scarlett is more interested in her pregnancy project than in falling in love. So now I'm in trouble. I've been matched with someone who wants my ability to father a child more than she wants me. And yet I still can't seem to get her out of my mind.
I’ve read a lot of the Matchmaker books that the Flirt Club did as a collaboration back in February. I’ve always liked the formula that the matches had to handwrite letters to one of another. This book was really unique in the fact that the first ten chapters are just letters back and forth. A chapter per letter. Initially between Scarlett and Grace and then between Scarlett and her match Mason. You were getting to know everyone, their circumstances and about their lives just through the letters. It felt as if you were along for the ride; there wasn’t any external information, only the letters and it was really different. I liked it. The story itself was different as well, as Scarlett isn’t looking for a happy ever after with a man, she just wants one to provide her with a baby and then to disappear. Grace and Mason have different ideas though, and throughout the book, you see both Scarlett and Mason struggling to come to terms with what the other wants from the situation. It isn’t your typical girl meets boy and falls in love story, there is a lot of soul searching going on. You are really rooting for this couple to sort their differences out and to live happily ever after - with each other! I thought it was really cute that Scarlett was designing the logo for the flirt club authors, that made me smile. It was a subtle little nod to the real world, again making you feel as if this story was real. Overall, a fantastic and engaging read and the perfect happy ever after love story.
