Original Review @

This book truly surprised me in a couple of ways. Choosing it from Kindle Unlimited, I expected a predictable, fluffy meringue of a romance.

I couldn’t have been more off. I know some readers don’t do heavy issues, but I enjoy a healthy splash of real life angst in my reads.

The emotional toll surrogacy can have on women rang truer than a story where the experience is portrayed as all hearts and roses. It cannot be easy to carry a child for nine months, knowing

Contract Baby: Babies for Billionaires Book 1 is by Fallyn Briggs. This is a cute book that deals with love, friendship and surrogate motherhood. It is easy and quick to read and covers all the emotions you might want to see in a romance. It is realistic in its characters and they are just like the boys and girls next door.
Layla and Keenan have known each other since they were small children. Layla’s Mother worked for Keenan’s parents as his nanny and housekeeper. Since Keenan was basically an

Laughs and tears

This is my first book by this author but I wanted to give it a try since the premise of the book sounded interesting to me. I figured what the ending would likely be but the idea of someone being a surrogate for someone they secretly loved was intriguing. It must have been hard for Layla being in love with her best friend Kennan for so long. To grow up together, become close, watch him fall in love and marry, and then to see him struggle with his wife’s terminal cancer diagnosis.

Layla grew up with Keenan and for her the lines get blurred, where the love for her best friend ends and her love for him as a man begins. But he is married to one of her besties, so totally off limits. When the couple ask her to be surrogate mother to their child, because Amelia is too weak from cancer treatment, she immediately says Yes. What she did not count on, was all the drama that would ensue, partly caused by the terminal disease of Amelia
A wonderful book, an emotional journey of love a

It wasn't terrible. Parts of this book were quite good, but it did delve into some deeper things that I generally don't look for in books I read for escape. So all in all, not my normal cup of tea. I don't think I'll be searching out the other books in this series. That being said, I did enjoy the secondary characters who star in their own books later, so I might be persuaded to read them if I had access to them for free. ...more

I read the three books in this series backwards. I loved all three. These two friendship from youth was great. They knew each other so well and loved each other through many troubled times and get their relationship remained strong. I loved that in the end they finally got together. Excellent story. Love the author.

I liked the fact that Layla and Keenan have been friends since shortly after birth. I really thought she was going to get over her love for him and have a good relationship with her author boyfriend. Being a surrogate for Keenan and his cancer dying spouse was a generous gesture. Lots of drama and plot twists to keep you interested.

The dialogue is immature

I struggled to get through the immature dialogue. There are such serious situations with cancer, surrogacy, death, and failed relationships. I think the author tried to keep it light and comical, but it failed for me. Too much drama, silliness and childish behavior for me to enjoy.

I don't really know what to write for this review. The story was kind of depressing, really. I mean, yeah, Layla and Keenan end up together in the end, but it just seemed SO sad that she has his second choice, and that his true love died....slowly, and painfully, and ran away from him too. I just prefer happier stories, I guess. ...more

The book was great from the first sentence to the last. The characters were marvelous. The pages of tension were just right. The editing was fabulous and the HEA was perfect.
