The book had its twist, and turns. The relationship between Dev, and Nichole was more like brother and sister at first. The book was sweet, but dragged in places.

Below is the best sample to describe this book. Sample taken from chapter 4

When you read this book, you have to let go of reality a little bit to fully enjoy the story. The title is a little deceiving because in Having Her Boss's Baby, Noelle finds out she is pregnant with her boss's BROTHER'S baby. The problem is that he died in Iraq. When Dev finds out, he immediately proposes to Noelle so that the baby can be taken care of and have the family name. He proposes a 2 year marriage of convenience. You know how that will turn out because marriage of convenience stories a ...more

I found the storyline somewhat forced, not to mention a good looking bachelor proposing to someone he barely knows highly implausible. I found the heroine somewhat naive and not believable. The whole reasoning behind their obstacle didn't make any sense to me. And the writing. Too many internal monologues with characters asking too many questions and not offering enough answers. Good thing I didn't buy this book. I checked it out from my online library.

The first in this series, Noelle is having a baby and the father has died. His brother Dev finds out and insists on marrying her. Marrying first and getting to know each other later is an interesting concept, but the plot seemed contrived in places and the characters not as well developed as I would have liked.

Como um bom romance de banca, esse não me decepcionou!
Ele é fofo e rápido!
Vale a pena a leitura se quiser um boa história de amor!

"4.5 stars" For quite a while now, I've been hearing good things about Susan Mallery's work, but until I finally picked up Having Her Boss's Baby, a book that has been on my TBR pile for a long time, I didn't know what I was missing. If this story is any indication of what Ms. Mallery is capable of as a writer, I would say I have a lot to look forward to as I explore her backlist. She definitely seems to have a talent for creating characters who are relatable, the types o

A história é bonitinha, fofinha, meiga. Com pessoas normais e situações críveis (na medida do possivel, claro).

O problema é que o namorado era um soldado e morre no Iraque e agora ela está perdida, e com resultado positivo no seu teste de gravidez.

I loved Noelle, she’s a simple girl with a great family that chose a difficult path and told Dev her feelings several times. Dev was left for almost everyone in his life, so he doesn’t want to love anyone, you can figure it out how much difficult it was for him to realize that Noelle was in love and had no problem telling him so.

I liked Dev most of the book and even understand his reasons to separate himself from everybody, his life was not easy and several times people left him, including his f

I’m officially a fan of Susan Mallery’s books. Having her Boss’s baby is not a new release. It is an old story I found enchanting and sweetly written. What are the odds that your boss will be your dream husband. Noelle and Devlin surely didn’t fall in love and their marriage is based on convenience only. I like the pace of the story. It is smooth and not in rush. It is not like any typical book where we found the hero is almost perfect. Well, Devlin is almost perfect but we can see in this book

I really enjoyed this book. What I liked about it is how the story moved. you ever read a book that gets slow and boring with too much detail about everything that you just skip it? not this one!

I read this book in a day..It's a light story,but still such sweet story about real love. This couple's journey is a painful one.I had tears in my eyes on several occasions...But there is still ha

I like Susan Mallery's books. Most of the time. But for some reason, there doesn't seem to be any middle ground for me when I read her books. I either really like them or they leave me feeling..blah. This book just didn't do it for me. It could have been so much more. It was so bland it could have been called vanilla.
There were some interesting moments but it dragged so much at times too. The interesting times weren't enough to save the story.
I learn the existence of this book in the waiting line of a grocery story. Many years later, still thinking about the title, I looked it up and order it. The marriage of convenience is a sweet story line. At the beginning, I was a little ill-at-ease when we learn the link between the baby's father and Noelle's boss (who asked questions about the conception...) But like I said it's sweet and easy to read.

This is my second book where one of the themes is pregnancy and marriage of convenience. Somehow, I like Noelle's honesty, frankness and her courage to proclaim her love even though she isn't sure if it would be returned. Dev, on the other hand, seems to be a responsible, rich, generous, kind and handsome type of man that somehow I overlooked his past that lead him to having flaws. :) I like this story. It's a 4.2 for me.

This book is perfect!! Interesting plot but what I loved most was the way Susan Mallery presented us the story and the heroes' feelings.
It was amazing how Noelle, instead of finding herself single mother at twenty without income, found suppost an then love with Dev.
I haven't read many of Susan Mallery's books yet but I consider this her masterpiece...

Recommends it for: 13+ and mature
Every entertaining and fairly typical for Susan Mallery. I liked the characters I was supposed to like and really disliked those as well. The only complaint I had was the age. 19? Really? She is the most grown up 19 year old I h have ever seen. That just seemed over the top for me. I really liked the character but felt she should have been at least 21 or 22. I recommend the story.

Very sweet 3.5 but realistically they should have made Noelle a bit older... she was a bit too wise for a 20 year old. Cast her as 25-26 year old and her maturity made more sense. Dev was by far the best character... the messed up ones usually are.

a man steps in for his recently deceased brother's unborn child, finding love with the child's mother.
I read these books all kinds of out of order, but it was fun. In many ways a typical moc story, but the heroine and her family added luster. Enjoyed. Recommend.

Enjoyed reading this one. Was surprised that Noelle's Pastor Father was so easy with Dev and the situation but I guess it takes all kinds.
