I'd give this a try only if the hero ended up with a serious STD and learned the importance of - I dunno - not trusting two random women he's just met to be clean.

See this great and helpful review:

It's fine if the author plans on making a statement with this kind of behavior and showing the consequences, but I get a good feeling that in this case it was just used as a "turn on".

And I'm more turned on by a gangrenous wound (at least not one found on this

Brady Shaw is the sole heir to a billion-dollar oil empire in Texas. However, he has no desire to take over the family business. He’s too busy pandering in women, booze, and all of life’s other temptations.

When his father shuts down the flow of money, Brady is presented with an ultimatum: marry and produce a grandchild within a year, or spend the remainder of his life like the rest of the world—poor as fuck.

Where are these poorly written books coming from? I just don't understand. The H and h were unlikeable. The h came off as very annoying. The writing was poor and ridden with errors. If you're ranked in the top 30, you can afford a proofreader and editor. And trust me--this book needs it.

I try to be nice in my reviews, but I've read so many books in the last few days, and almost all have sucked. I'm at the end of my patience and just want to warn you guys before you waste your time and money.

This story had some depth and twists that I wasn't expecting, which was a nice surprise. Good characters and a nice ending.

*2.5 stars*

This wasn't really what I expected when I saw the blurb for this book. It was okay, but nothing special. The introduction to the story took almost 50% of the book - really, really unnecessary if you want my opinion. But some people like it that way. I also wasn't the big fan of vivid description of hero sleeping with some random twins while in Spain - he didn't know the heroin just yet, but still, he's a playboy, we get it even without it. Then the second half of the book had potentia

I got this for free from BookBub. *shakes fist at BookBub* I am a sucker for marriage of convenience stories, and it was free, so...but then I read it and while it was competently presented I wouldn't call it a marriage of convenience story. They didn't get married, for one thing, and they fell for each other way too quickly and their relationship was mostly physical. I know you're all shocked. At least it was a quick read for me as I find sex scenes boring and skip them. I skipped a lot. Anyway ...more

A nice romantic comedy. Brady and Dana are so perfect together. They both might have started their fake relationship for money but at the end they both got their HEA. It's sad about the tragedy that they both faced but at the end it made their relationship so much stronger. A must read.

When I started updating Goodreads for real, I vowed to make it an honest "stuff I read" list, both the stuff that makes me look all smart and tasteful AND the things that reveal compromising and mortifying information about my taste in literature. I stand by that decision. I did, indeed, read this book. It was free on Kindle. It was surprisingly readable.

However, my pride will not let me rate a book with such a title any higher than a 3, because I am a vain academic with standards and I want you

This was the first book I've read by either Tasha Fawkes or M.S. Parker and it was okay. The book felt like it had a slow start as the reader is introduced to Brady Shaw, the 27-year-old billionaire playboy son of a Texas oil tycoon and Dana Sommer, a down on your luck 22-year-old Nursing student. I imagine the authors were building the background of the characters, but the book is at 34% before they even meet. The beginning could have been condensed a little and spent more time developing the r ...more

I do love a billionaire baby romance, and Knocked Up By The Billionaire has everything I love plus more. It was fun, sweet and gritty along with some suspense and heart racing moments, leaving no page unturned. My only downfall would be that there was so much Information in the 30-40% in the first part of the book leaving it rushed in the 2nd half. While it wasn't a deal breaker I really wanted more o

I usually love the premise of fake fiance, ultimatums from parents to produce an heir, signed contracts that lead to them leaving happily-ever-after, but honestly, this book fell way short. It all seemed a little too technically written. The inner monologues were long-winded, and it felt like the author was forcing the characters down a path instead of the other way around. Plus there were so many inconsistencies that made reading the story a pain.

Short and sweet

This book was a really quick for me, it was relatively fast paced and was just a quick read. While I do tend to prefer longer books, this was was pretty decent, I enjoyed it. I tend to enjoy when relationships are more for convenience, they make for a lot of drama. In this case there wasn’t that much drama.

I guess in the end the characters were almost what you want to see... but most of the book is them faffing about being assholes, idiots or dicks. And then the end was just 'ta-da, let's give you an overview'.

I did read the sampler of the next book in the back and found myself more interested in that then the original... Until I looked it up and read the whole blurb. Add to that the couple of reviews that point out while there might be a couple of plot changes... it's pretty much the same book.

So much potential

Normally I don’t critic an Author’s work.
It is they imagination and creativity, something that I couldn’t have conjured up. I typically criticize the characters and my experience with/ being them. My interpretations and emotions are independent variables. With that being said. This book had so much potential to be an epic love story with many life lessons, good and bad. What we got was a drawn out book full of unnecessary descriptions and details that do no

While in Spain, he received numerous phone calls and texts from his father and the family lawyer. But, he refused to answer. That was until all credit cards were locked and he didn't have money to get home. So he phoned the lawyer who told him he had a ticket waiting for him at the airport.

Brady, spoiled, millionaire, party/bad boy, is given an ultimatum by his father, enough with the partying ways, its time to settle down and give him an heir to the empire that Brady does not want. Brady wants none of it, the business the settling down and creating a family.

Firstly, the opening chapter from Brady's POV I didn't think was entirely necessary to get the background to his character ((view spoiler)).

The storyline of a super rich playboy living life large with nothing to worry about except who to pick to sleep with, and the young woman busting her butt to make something of herself while trying to look after her brother, has been done before so many times.
In this case the playboy ,Brady, has to prove to his dad that he can be a grownup. Dana discovers that her hope of finishing her nursing course are threatened, leaving her desperate to find a way to make it work. Sure there is a new take on

All my favorite things are in this book! Hot billionaire and a story written by M.S. Parker!

Poor Brady's dad is shutting down his flow of money unless Brady produces a grandchild for him within a year! If he doesn't, then he'll be poor!

Dana works hard while in college. If it wasn't for bad luck, she'd have none! So, when she sees a most unconventional add on Craigslist, she answers it! Is this add for real? How bad can it be to marry a playboy billionaire and produce a kid?

Brady’s dad gave him an ultimatum clean up his act, get married and produce a grandchild within the first year of marriage and his inheritance will be available again. If no marriage no inheritance.

Brady comes up with a plan and Dana's desperate enough to agree to it.
